Avoiding medical care for Peyronie’s disease is common
Refusal to see a doctor about a bent penis is an unwise but common reaction among men who find themselves dealing with the long-term negative prospects of Peyronie’s disease. The male tendency to be slow about seeking medical attention in general is compounded by the shock and utter disbelief of learning that there is actually a urological medical condition called Peyronie’s disease that undermines the ability to function as a sexual human being.
In Peyronie’s disease the development of fibrous plaque tissue below the surface of the shaft results in a curved penis or some other deformity that reduces or eliminates the ability to engage in sexual intercourse. Making matters worse it frequently reduces the length and girth of the shaft, as well as weakens the quality of erection.
Take advantage of the fact the body cures Peyronies disease half the time
When a woman looks for helpful information about Peyronie’s disease she can turn to the Peyronie’s Disease Institute woman-to-woman program for a telephone discussion during which our nurse will answer any questions about PD treatment, sexual dysfunction problems or anything that is of interest to a woman when her husband will not help himself.
The proposal that a man can move his status from someone who was not able to eliminate his own Peyronie’s disease to become a member of the 50% group who rid themselves of this affliction is a simple and easy one to understand. It is based on the observation that about half of the men naturally and spontaneously heal or correct their Peyronie’s disease within the first 12-18 months after onset.
When a man finds that he has not self-corrected or eliminated his Peyronies plaque he still has the option to promote his own recovery. This can be attempted by an aggressive plan to actively support or increase his natural healing ability using several different natural therapies identified by medical research to assist the removal of the offending fibrous plaque material. To find out more about this process go to “Start Peyronie’s treatment.”
Alternative Medicine offers natural treatment options to Peyronie’s surgery and drugs
Since 2002 the Peyronie’s Disease Institute has developed the concepts, as well as nutritional and external techniques, that proposes any man can follow a program of self-administered Alternative Medicine care in an effort to increase his ability to heal and repair the Peyronie’s plaque. By focusing multiple therapies to enhance healing potential many men find they can increase their immune response against the soft tissue changes that cause all the outward signs and symptoms that are so deeply disturbing and disruptive to normal male function.
This is good news for any man who realizes that there is indeed a cure for Peyronies disease; half of the time the body will naturally rid – or cure – itself of the internal scar or plaque material that causes all the problems of altered sexual structure and reduced sexual ability without any outside help or intervention. In other words many men just get rid of their own PD without any help. Using well placed and logical assistance that is guided by research done in this area for the last 40 years, the Peyronie’s Disease Institute finds that it is often worthwhile for a man to simply support his immune system to reduce the foreign fibrous material of Peyronie’s disease in order to support his tendency to eliminate his PD fibrous plaque as happens half of the time.
A woman can help her man in many ways
Probably as the two of you were going through information on the Internet your husband got stuck on the idea that there is nothing that can be done for PD except Peyronie’s surgery, which the Internet information also reports will be followed by recurrence of the same problem in a few years and the possibility of side effects that are sometimes worse than before the surgery (loss of all sensation, constant pain, impotence). With the negative atmosphere and bleak prospects for medical care associated with Peyronie’s disease many men feel a natural hesitancy to get started moving in that direction.
A great paradox commonly develops for a couple when they struggle to understand what is happening to them when they are first learn about Peyronie’s disease. The contradiction is that after getting the diagnosis and learning about the disease that neither of them knew existed, the man is typically motivated by embarrassment and fear of the future to be quiet and introspective while the woman instinctively wants to discuss the problem and explore her feelings with others. As time goes on and Peyronies exerts its negative influence on their lives, each will be driven deeper into their opposite direction, and each will not understand why their partner is behaving that way. This makes for increasing tension between the couple while they should be coming closer together to deal with their mutual problem.
The special relationship between a woman and a man is always tested greatly when Peyronies enters the scene. While not absolutely true, it has been my observation that most couples will find that the many trials and tribulations of Peyronie’s disease and women will cause whatever is good and strong in their relationship to increase and become better, and whatever is troubled and weak in their relationship to deteriorate further. Peyronie’s disease does not actually create new conflict within a relationship, but only increases and intensifies whatever strength or weakness was present before it arrived on the scene; it acts as a great reference point that amplifies whatever was going on between the couple before its arrival. It does not have to be that way, but it happens because people are not prepared for what lies ahead. They are caught so unprepared for the drama that becomes their lives together that the truth of their relationship is not only exposed but it is exaggerated by the emotions that emerge.
During countless talks with PD couples since 2002 it has been observed many times that either a couple is a naturally good problem-solving team, or it is not. When it is not, and the man and woman do not work together well, it is very difficult for them to develop and practice whatever new personal skills of good communication, tolerance, compassion, forgiveness or whatever assistance might be needed to help their situation. It takes extra effort and great patience to acquire the skills and ability needed to come together as a team, while at the same time dealing with the harsh realities of Peyronie’s disease. Just as it might be difficult to learn to swim while being swept away in a flood, it is just as difficult to develop those skills that lead to becoming a solid team if at the same time they are being tossed about while dealing with PD. Having presented that observation, it should bring comfort to know it is still possible to minimize and perhaps even overcome the negative and destructive forces that develop as a result of Peyronies disease if exceptional effort and honesty are applied.
You can begin to help your husband with his Peyronie’s disease by encouraging him with information that it might be possible to help himself correct his own PD problem as those 50% of men whose internal plaque are naturally eliminated. Offer this information to him, showing him that there are more options available to him than Peyronie’s surgery.
