Will sexual activity aggravate my Peyronie’s disease?

hi doctor,

you said that pd scar heal it self in (12 -18) months, but i think that is possible if one prevents any sexual activities . I am saying that because i already have pd and i almost ordered the treatment from your site knowing that i don't have sexual activities and never had ,but a few days ago i notice that my pd scar has  increased after my penis became erect while i am sleeping .Now i am scared that this scar will increase more and more and the treating process will be harder, so help me.

forgive me for my tedious question.

Greetings Abdullah,

I am not sure I exactly understand what it is that you are trying to say.  

As a general statement I can tell you that simply having, or not having, sexual relations will not help or hurt your recovery from Peyronie's disease or worsen your condition.  The primary issue about sexual activity in regard to Peyronie's disease is any potential for abuse and injury that might occur during sexual activity. Further, what I mentioned about sexual activity when done gently, safely and while using reasonable judgement and restraint, will not necessarily aggravate Peyronie's disease, the same can be said about developing an erection.  Erections do not cause and cannot aggravate the problem, except if there are extenuating circumstances associated with the erection. An example of this situation would be if there is not enough room for the erection to extend outward and so it becomes painfully restricted, and forced to remain bent even though it is erect.

For further information please see "Peyronie's disease and sex safety concerns."

If this explanation does not help you, please let me know.  TRH
