Do you have any advice because I am making slow progress with my Peyronies treatment plan?

Dr.

 

I now take Neprinol 4 pills 3 times daily, vitamin E 2 pills 400iu 3 times daily, Sulfur 2 pills 3times daily, and Scar x 2 times daily, e oil, and Super CP Serum with DMSO.  Sometimes progress seems very slow but have only been doing this dose for about a month. Have been about half this dose for about 7 months.  Any advice?

Scott
 
Greetings Scott,
 
If you were taking half of your current plan for seven months it is no wonder your progress is slow.  It is great that you can see progress with your problem after only one month of being on a more aggressive plan.  This is how it should be done.
 
Your current plan is moderate perhaps compared to others who make progress.  I mention this only to give you an idea what others find they must do to reduce the PD plaque. 
 
You should not design your plan based on what others do, but only work based on how your tissue responds to what you are doing.  If the scar does not get smaller, softer, less well defined or change the surface texture, then you should consider upping the plan in some way that will increase your ability to break the scar down and remove it.  Again, as I am sure you are tired of reading from me, all plan changes are based on the response of the PD scar or plaque and not the appearance of bent penis.  The scar will guide you to what your body needs to do the job of healing your Peyronie's disease.    
 
You are taking a large dosage of vitamin E, Scott, so I would suggest not taking any more of it. In fact, you could be taking less vitamin E if you added some vitamin C to your plan (maybe 3,00-5,000 mg daily).  The other therapies can be increased especially the enzymes.    
 
I also suggest that you add in some additional external therapy, like perhaps the technique found on the gentle manual penis stretching video. This would give you more variety of treatment options.  
 
You should be slowly and gradually increasing the dosage of your plan every 7-10 days if you do not see improvement with the size, shape, density and surface features of your Peyronie's plaque. 
 
If you have any specific questions about locating or defining your PD scar or increasing your plan, arrange for a phone discussion soon.   TRH 

Can I cause more damage to my Peyronie’s disease due to difficult penetration during sex because of a partial erection?

Hi Dr. Herazy,

I started having some pain with erections about March 2012, seen family doctor, asked if penis was bent and when I self examined, and yes it was. He then told me I had Peyronie's Disease. I had about 30 degree bend to left and could still enjoy sex. Most pain has subsided, but about 2 weeks ago, found I could not make penetration with my wife. Upon self exam, I see I am not getting full erection, top of penis is soft while base is erect. I gather there must now be full blockage to the end of penis? I am thinking of trying your medium treatment plan. Also, can I do more damage if I try again with my wife? I was also thinking of trying CyberSkin Transformer, would that help? Like every other guy, this is a huge blow to me.

Thanks!

 

Greetings,

Your assumption that your poor erection quality is due to a "full blockage to the end of the penis" is not correct.  Actually, the opposite is probably true.

In Peyronie's disease the reduction of erection strength is typically due to the Peyronie plaque preventing the closure of valves in the penis veins.  When these valves cannot close the blood that is normally circulating within the penis simply is not trapped and collected to create the hydraulic effect known as a erection.  Imagine what would happen if you attempted to blow up a balloon that had the other end cut off.  Any amount of air you would blow into the balloon would not be trapped inside and the balloon would not swell and become firm with increased internal pressure caused by air being collected in an enclosed space.  To say it another way, if you try to warm up your bathroom in the winter you must close the door so the heated air can collect inside the enclosed space.  Opening the door allows the heated air to escape.  In the soft area of your penis the blood is not being trapped because the scar prevents closure of the valves that trap blood.  Your blood circulation in the penis is probably as good and uninterrupted as it has ever been, it is just not being collected to create the hydraulic pressure a good erection requires. 

What is probably happening in your situation is that the fibrous material related to your Peyronie's disease has advanced now to the point that the internal Peyronie's scar or plaque material is getting larger and reducing the ability of the valves to close to trap blood and create a complete and normal erection.  The solution involves reducing the size of scar, or even eliminating it.  That is where the PDI treatment plans come in to help you heal them as they normally are healed in about half of the cases.  The medium plan is a popular way to get started with Peyronies treatment.     

Sexual penetration with a partial erection can be difficult and dangerous.  It is dangerous in the sense that a partial erection can suddenly bend and buckle during intercourse and this can result in further damage to the tunica albuginea and make your PD worse than it is now.  I suggest that you get the 2nd book I wrote, "Peyronie's Disease and Sex" that will explain in great detail how you can maintain your sexual activity in spite of having PD.  It is a great book that has helped many couples in this vital area of life.  

The Cyberskin Transformer series of products are effective in providing additional support to the penis to reduce – but not totally eliminate – the possibility of sudden bending during sexual activity that can further injure the penis.  There are other products as well that PDI has available for this purpose like the Girth Prosthetic Rings, Invisi-rider Enhancer and the Reversible Sleeve.  All of these can be found at the sex supports/aids section of the PDI store front.

Peyronie's disease can be a tremendous personal stress to everyone who is in a relationship who has to deal with the outlandish physical changes that can happen to a penis.   The important thing is that you work to do all you can to reduce those changes by increasing and supporting the natural ability of your body to eliminate the internal fibrous scar tissue that causes the curved penis and weak erections of Peyronie's disease. Please let me know if I can help you in any way to correct your problem to the greatest extent possible.   TRH   

Please Doctor Herazy you are the only person who I think can help my Peyropnie’s disease

Dr Herazy,

I am a young adult male from CA. I have been cursed with Peyronie's disease at a young age and it is destroying my youth. I am practically bed-ridden with depression and I can't even sleep right anymore. All I want is to fix my Peyronie's disease. My plaque doesn't even cause bending, it is in the base of the penis and is causing a severe narrowing of the tunica. My erection hangs low now and the deformation can be seen easily. You could call it "baseball bat" shaped. I lost my job due to my severe depression this has sunk me into an even deeper state of gloom. I can't afford to pay for anything on the site. Please Doctor Herazy you are the only person who I think can help me. Everything else is just suggesting thatcher's formula or surgery, but they think my penis is curved.

I eagerly await your reply.

-Thom

 

Greetings Thom,

I could write a 10,000 word response to your email, but I simply do not have the time or opportunity to reply to all the  levels of the different problems that you express in your email. 

The fact that you do not ask a question in your email suggests that you have not attempted to learn about how you might be able to help yourself out of this problem. You wish for me to fix your problem, and I cannot; only you can.  The fact that you suggest I am the only one who can help you tells me that you are not taking any responsibility for your recovery but would rather put that burden on me. This is not the way that Peyronie's disease treatment works, and for that matter it is not the way that anything in life works. You need to re-evaluate this aspect of your personality and mindset to see how this has affected your response not only to Peyronie's disease but to other aspects of your life.  

You are making your situation worse by wallowing in self pity and you amplifying how your condition is affecting you.  You are the one allowing yourself to be bed-ridden with depression. You are telling yourself that your life is being destroyed and you are believing that voice as though it was the truth. You are making your problem worse than it is, you need to take control of yourself, and you need to correct these deeper and larger issues that bother you.    

You say you are bothered by your observation that the baseball bat deformation can be easily seen. You are investing far too much worry and energy in the idea that someone else will look at your deformity and think less of you. This bothers you as much as it does because you already do not think much of yourself and have been bothered by low self-esteem for most of your life.  I suggest that your poor self image is what is really at the base of why you feel that your youth is being destroyed.       

I also suggest to you that you have always had many problems in life that have overwhelmed you, and Peyronie's disease is just the latest to flatten you out emotionally. 

Please allow me to help you by telling your to seek professional help for your other problems.  In the meant time, you should investigate a bit about Peyronies treatment and attitude.   TRH

Should I continue with pentoxifylline as a Peyronies treatment?

Hi Dr. Herazy,

I have been told by two urologists that I have Peyronie and told to come back in 4 or 6 months. I originally felt a tighter than usual erection and latter felt a lump inside my penis. I can feel this with my thumb and another finger, like a small ball inside the shaft close to the base. I am not sure how long I have has this for. I am not sure for how long a have had the curve upwards. It’s not big and I have asked my wife and she is not sure either. Looking closer I can feel where the bent is. I have had no major trauma etc.

I don’t have pain on erections but have been feeling some itchiness type pain when flaccid. And if I have been sitting for long time, I have felt really uncomfortable tightness beginning from under my scrotum to the top of the base of my penis. I get the sense that it’s where I felt the lump.

I have read that TRENTAL/PENTOX/OXPENTIFYLLINE has helped some people in combination with CoQ10 and have got a script from my GP.  I took a test run today of TRENTAL 400 to check for side effects — none so far.

Should I continue with this?

 

Greetings,

I cannot comment whether you should take pentoxifylline (pentox) or not.  That is a decision you must make for yourself in consideration with the advice offered by your treating doctor.   Ultimately you have to feel confident with your treatment and know that it is right for you, and not just simply do what you are told to do.

To give you some perspective, you might want to consider reading Pentoxifylline, niacin and Peyronie’s disease and Pentoxifylline and Peyronie’s disease treatment.

It is good that you have not experienced any side effects to pentoxifylline, but the real question is if it will help your Peyronie’s disease or not. 

I suggest that you consider using Alternative Medicine in the way that is described on the PDI website.  Let me know if you have any questions in this regard.  TRH

Is a penis extender the wrong thing to use for Peyronies?

Hi Dr.

I got Peyronie's disease about 5 years ago through intercourse with my wife. I saw an urologist who prescribed a 3 month dose of pills which failed to do anything so we tried it again. I was then told I could have surgery which made me go into denial. The curve has got worse over the last 2 years and I’m worried about having sex so it's become non existent between the two of us. I am now desperate and have been looking at the penis extender for Peyronies – is this a possible method along with your treatments, or is this the wrong move. I'd like to get started in the right direction.

Thanks R


Greetings R,

You need to do a little bit of reading.  There are many articles and posts I have written about using a mechanical penis stretcher, commonly called a penis extender.  Here are a few links for you to read: Penis stretcher:  Big problem as Peyronies treatment and Penis extender claims and Peyronie's disease and Peyronies treatment and the penis stretcher.

Peyronie's surgery is always something that is proposed when other medical treatment eventually fails.  I would caution you to consider that if your penis has already demonstrated the ability to develop too much scar after a small injury, there is a stronger possibility of an even greater amount of scar occurring as a result of the surgical incisions associated with common penis surgery techniques.  This is the reason that men find their PD worse after having surgery to correct their curved penis.     

From my experience many couples who live with Peyronie's disease in their lives will limit or stop sexual intimacy when it is not necessary to do so.  The problem often is that their medical doctor does not know about or does not take time time to explain, some basic information that would enable a couple to safely engage in intercourse.  I can assure you that within a brief time you would feel a lot more comfortable about resuming sexual relations once a few things have been explained to you. My wife, who is an RN, and I have counseled with many hundreds of couples and helped them to regain that part of their lives by simply sharing some simple information. Contact me if you are interested in learning more.  Additionally, you can get a book that wrote, "Peyronie's Disease and Sex" from the PDI website.       

Getting Peyronie's treatment started in the right direction is easy if you are prepared to spend some time educating yourself on the PDI about Alternative Medicine methods to increase your ability to remove the PD scar naturally.  I did it, and I get emails every week from men who are doing it.  I have come to realize that when the average man even after five years of dealing with Peyronies if he uses a large and diverse program of care and works aggressively will see positive change in 2-4 months in about 80% of cases.

Let me know if I can help you in any way to get your life together.  TRH

What is the best way to get rid of Peyronie’s disease?

Hello Dr. H,

What is the best way to get rid of Peyronie's disease?

Wendell from Ohio


Greetings Wendell,

The very best way to eliminate your Peyronie's disease is to do it exactly the way that half the men with PD get over theirs.  It goes away by itself.  With the PDI method we attempt to increase your natural ability to heal and correct PD like it should have happened in the first place. Peyronies heals naturally and spontaneously in about half the cases, the same way that a broken bone or a throat infection heals. 

We tend to forget that the body can and does correct the problem of Peyronie's disease in a high percent of cases.   There is a very good reason that the standard medical approach to managing a case of Peyronie's disease is to do nothing for the first 12-18 months after the condition starts.  The idea to initially do nothing is based on the absence of any actual medical treatment that works to correct PD.  During this  waiting period the body is given time to heal or eliminate the problem naturally.  In this way the medical profession admits that a natural healing process for recovery from PD does exist and that it actively happens in a high percent of cases. 

When I developed Peyronie's disease in 2001 I immediately understood the great potential for my body to cure itself of this problem if I could determine what therapies might support or improve my natural healing ability. After doing considerable research I found a large group of natural therapy items (vitamin E, acetyl-L-carnitine, etc.) that were abandoned after initial getting positive research findings as a potential Peyronies treatment. I have always assumed that they were not subjected to additional research because the large pharmaceutical companies did not want to advance the idea that inexpensive and readily available nutritional products might be helpful against PD.  Regardless, I started to use all the vitamins, minerals and enzymes I read good things about, and started to take them together and in slowly greater and greater dosages. Eventually over time I began to see my four PD scars slowly get smaller, softer and more difficult to find.

There is much that medical science knows about the healing process of the body in general what cells are involved, what hormones and chemical messengers are produced, the different chemical equations that must happen,  the minerals and enzymes that must be present for certain reactions to occur.  However, there there is still much that remains unknown about what the body does to recover from illness and disease.   This is especially true in the case of Peyronie's disease where far more remains unknown than known. However, it is still possible to work to improve the odds for recovery from Peyronie's disease.  All that must be done is to present to the body a wide list of known vitamins, minerals and enzymes that

Promoting the natural healing of Peyronie's disease is not a simple or even easy thing to do, but by taking this route to recovery it is possible to eliminate the Peyronie's plaque and the curved penis it causes without exposing yourself to the risk of drug side effects or surgical failure.

I suggest that anyone with Peyronie's disease should go to the Peyronie's Disease Institute website to learn more about what needs to be done to stimulate and support the natural healing process against Peyronie's disease.  TRH

How much total loss of size can happen as a result of Peyronie's disease?

HI Doc,

I think my injury was about 2 years ago. I did not notice anything right away except for black and blue on the lower part of my shaft. After about 1 and 1/2 years i noticed i was having a harder time getting and maintaining erections. I thought it was because i was a diabetic. About a month ago i noticed that i had a dent on the lower left side of my penis causing it to bend slightly to the left. I also have pain while erect and soft. my urologist appointment is not for 2 more months. I was wondering if this was early stages or later? I have also lost some length and girth. I am very scared and nervous. I want to start your best plan as soon as possible, i don't want to waist 2 months of your treatments if i don't have to. Do you know what the total loss of size could happen as a result of having Peyronie's disease? When i order your large plan should i add anything else to it to get the best results? Thank you in advance.

Scared 50 year old

Greetings Scared,

We are all scared when we first come to realize how bad Peyronie's disease can be. Try to take some of that energy you now waste on feeling scared and put it to positive use by reading and learning how to help yourself with this problem so you can instead feel confident and in control of yourself.

A dent (also called a ding, nick, divot or hinge deformity) such as you describe is common. Sometimes there is only one, and other times they are numerous. Sometimes these persist, and other times they slowly or rapidly evolve into other deformities such as a bottleneck, hourglass or simple curve or bend.

Pain can and does occur in Peyronie's disease while both erect and flaccid; however, some men experience pain only while erect, or only during sexual activity; I only had pain while flaccid. As you will soon learn there are very few things about Peyronies that are not variable.

A common and consistent finding of PD is loss of penis size. It seems that the larger the penis, the more size that can be lost. While most men speak in general terms of getting smaller, not too often will actual numbers be mentioned; just like you most men do not give a number. It seems like admitting to the actual reduced size is too embarrassing or uncomfortable to reveal that kind of detail. When the actual size loss is mentioned it seems that 1 to 1 3/4 inches of lost length, and about the same for lost girth or circumference is what I am told commonly. Occasionally I am told the loss will go up to 2 inches or more. One poor devil told me that his 8 inch erection was now just slightly more than 4 inches. I have never heard of anyone losing only length or only girth, but always both; I suppose it could happen, but I have not heard of it.

I always encourage men to start Peyronies treatment proactively when there is strong evidence of the diagnosis, as in your case. It seems logical that treatment should start the sooner the better, while the fibrous tissue changes are less well developed.

The large plan is a smart way to start. Do not add anything to it initially although you could if you feel compelled to do so. A good therapy to consider adding, if that is your intention, is the gentle manual penis stretching program since it is so unique compared to the rest of the items in that plan. It is also comparatively inexpensive and it never has to be replenished, making it a good buy for a whole new range of treatment that you are able to use.

The best results come from two separate factors: 1. Being faithful and aggressively applying whatever plan you select to start with. 2. Spending the time and effort to learn the exact size, shape, density and surface features of each of the internal scars that are present in the shaft. This information is critical to use as a valuable referencer point to determine if your plan is or is not working. If you cannot accurately and in detail the physical structure of your internal scars you will not know if and when change occurs. Without this valuable knowledge you are forced to guess about your plan, and this is obviously to be avoided. Go to different parts of the PDI website to learn more about how to do this. You can also read about it in chapter 4 of the “Peyronie's Disease Handbook.”

Let me know if I can help you in any way as you work toward your eventual recovery. TRH

Am I using my Peyronie's treatment plan properly?

I recently started treating my Peyronies. I currently take 3 Neprinol 3x a day. In the morning I take 4 Unique E, 3000mg of vitamin C and 1 Bromelain 5000. I also use DMSO and Super CP Serum. Am I taking the supplements properly and am I on the right track? There has been little or no change in the 2 weeks since I started treatment.

Greetings,

First of all, you did not give me a lot of detail about how you are using your plan. For example, you did not mention if you are taking the Neprinol with your meals or between meals. And you did not mention if you are taking the vitamin E and vitamin C with your meals or between meals. Saying that you “use” DMSO and Super CP Serum does not give me any idea how you are applying it. Lastly, you did not mention if are taking the Bromelain 5000 with your meals or between meals. All of these details are very important to know if you are actually using your therapies correctly and what kind of results you will earn as a consequence.

http://www.improveyourkidneyfunction.com/

Also, when you write that in two weeks “(t)here has been little to no change” I would like to know what it is that you are basing that statement on. No change in curvature of your penis, or no change in the size, shape, density and surface features of your PD plaque? What you are using to gauge your success and the effectiveness of your treatment plan is of critical importance. Please let me know the answers to the above questions and I will be able to reply with a much more helpful response to you. TRH

Do I start with the penis stretching CD to treat my Peyronie's disease?

Hi Doctor.

I am Abduallah Adi from Palestine, I am 20 yrs old. Six months ago I had Peyronie’s disease because I was wearing a very tight underwear and I went to a urologist and told me it is PD. He gave me vitamin E and Antibiotic only.

My penis hurts me and it almost 30 degrees upward.

Now I visit your site and I don't know what to buy. Do I start with the stretching or what please help me.

I am waiting your response.

Greetings Abduallah,

Over the years I have encountered several men whose Peyronie's disease started with the prolonged compression caused by wearing tight clothes of any type. It is not the most common way to get injured and develop Peyronies disease, but it does happen.

Vitamin E is an important Peyronie's treatment but it must be a very high quality natural vitamin E product; you cannot use just any kind of vitamin E. Also, when used by itself vitamin E tends to not have enough affect on the body to promote tissue repair; it must be combined with other therapies for greatest effectiveness.

The gentle PDI Manual Penis Stretching Method CD is not intended to be used by itself; all PDI products are intended to be used together for greatest benefit. You cannot play the piano and call yourself an orchestra – you need violins, drums, trumpets and many other instruments to complete the sound of an orchestra. It is the same with PD treatment. It is necessary to supply everything needed for tissue repair and healing – delivered to the body all at the same time – to provide the boost and support needed for successful recovery from Peyronie's disease. The gentle PDI Manual Penis Stretching technique is only one part of what you might need to eliminate the Peyronie's plaque and reverse your curved penis. Some men who try using only the PDI stretching method have made small changes in their bent penis problem, but only after adding in the necessary other elements do they begin to get the large improvement they need.

Instead of using only the manual penis stretching technique, I suggest you use the largest Peyronies treatment plan you can afford to stay on for 2-3 months. During this time you will work to give your body the opportunity to heal and repair the Peyronie's plaque that is causing your bent penis.

Please go to the Peyronies treatment ordering page, found by clicking on the blue button at the top of the right sidebar. Any of the treatment plans you will find on this page can be effective, but we find that the larger and more aggressively applied plans work better than those that are smaller and only casually used.
