Curved penis and other reasons to hate Peyronie’s disease
The curved penis of Peyronie’s disease is the most obvious thing about PD. Because of it, a man’s life changes. Suddenly his normally straight penis is bent, painful, possibly smaller, and difficult to use during sex.
In spite of this, the most important thing about Peyronie’s disease is the internal scar tissue. Without that internal scar, there would be no curved penis, weak erections, pain or lost size. Even so, the PD scar receives little attention. Perhaps this is because it is located below the skin surface, and is often difficult to locate.
Certainly, what men hate most about Peyronie’s disease is the curved penis. They seldom think about the scar that causes the curve. Remember, “Peyronie’s disease is all about the scar.”
About the Peyronie’s disease scar
Healthy penis tissue is flexible and can expand. During an erection, this elastic tissue traps blood causing the penis to stretch and enlarge. As a result, the penis becomes longer and thicker, producing an erection. The erection is usually straight because the tissue enlarges in all directions, evenly.
In Peyronie’s disease, dense and inelastic fibrous scar tissue replaces some of the elastic tissue. The fibrous scar prevents normal expansion in that part of the penis where it is located. Limited expansion results in a curved penis.
Peyronie’s disease often starts after a penis injury, even chemical irritation. For reasons yet unknown, an injured penis sometimes makes more scar than necessary. This extra scar tissue appears as small bumps below the surface of the penis. After many months, these small bumps change into a scar. The scar can be different sizes, shapes and hardness. Some scars become as long as the penis. Other times, they circle the shaft like a belt. Depending on their number and location, they change the erection in different ways.
It is impossible to find PD scars if they are flat, or their edges are thin and vague. They can be located in places that make them impossible to find. When the scar or plaque is difficult to find, assume it exists if a previously straight erection becomes bent.
“Bent nail disease”
Anyone with PD focuses on the obvious, the Peyronie’s curved penis. It gets everyone’s attention, for sure. Besides looking strange, a large bend in the penis can prevent sexual intercourse. This gets PD even more attention, for sure.
Peyronie’s curved penis and sexual intercourse
Penetration can be next to impossible. Severe penis distortions can look like a “cork screw” or “cane handle.” The scar is a weak area that can suddenly buckle during intercourse. Known as a “penis fracture,” it can be very painful. This often leads to more scar formation, worse PD, and greater limits to sexual activity.
Erectile dysfunction (ED), a partial filling with blood, can also develop in Peyronie’s disease. This reduced blood filling makes the normally rigid erection weak. This presents additional difficulty for the sexual act.
In addition, the penis often becomes shorter and thinner in Peyronie’s disease. Once again, this is due to the fibrous tissue pulling from the inside. Shame and embarrassment about the appearance of the penis are common, causing more ED.
A rare Peyronie’s couple does not experience sexual difficulty because of what Peyronie’s disease does to the penis – and mind.
It is difficult to deal with sex problems when a curved penis gets in the way. Many complex physical and emotional issues surface for the couple who struggle with Peyronie’s disease. If this sounds familiar, click on “Peyronie’s Disease and Sex.” This book offers important ideas and sex techniques.
Curved penis treatment
The curved penis is not the real problem of Peyronie’s disease. However, a suddenly curved penis is difficult to ignore. You can hate your PD for all the right reasons, but to get rid of PD you must remove the scar. Without an internal scar, there is no curved penis and no Peyronie’s disease.
Start your Peyronie’s disease natural treatment here. When you treat your PD, you must know about the scar. You must know the exact size, shape, density and surface qualities of the scar to know if your Alternative Medicine treatment is effective. These things are used as a guide that tells you if your treatment is working.
