Taboo subject penis curvature (Peyronie)
When it comes to penile discomfort, many men do not want to talk about it and although few refrain from treatment, penile curvature (Peyronie’s disease), for example, is still a taboo subject.
In fact, there are relatively many men who struggle with curvature of the penis, but rarely does it make sexual intercourse difficult. As soon as this is the case, a disease-related penile curvature or Peyronie’s disease may be present.
In this article, we would like to show you how this condition manifests itself and what the treatment options are.
How to recognize a curvature of the penis
Although the exact cause of the disease is not yet known, it can be easily identified by the symptoms that appear. One of the main complaints of peyronie’s disease is the curvature of the penis that accompanies it.
This curvature usually occurs upwards, but can also be noticeable on the side or downwards. Not infrequently, the curvature leads to pain during sexual intercourse and erection problems.
Furthermore, it can lead to a shortening of the penis or psychological problems such as a decrease in self-esteem. The longer the disease remains untreated, the worse the consequences are as a rule. It is unlikely that the curvature will regress and the condition will go away on its own.
What you can do if you have a curved penis
Peyronie’s can be a nuisance, but there are a variety of treatment options to prevent the worst from happening. In this regard, it is worth mentioning, among other things, the mechanical traction.
Medical expanders are used in appropriate methods, although a positive effect has so far only been proven with the PeniMaster Pro. The expander can lead to both straightening and lengthening of the penis through regular use.
Those who suffer from peyronie’s disease should consider this option. In addition to mechanical treatment, therapy with medication is also an option. The problem with medications is that they are only promising in the early stages.
During this stage, various medications – including natural preparations with vitamin D – can support wound healing and counteract scarring.
As soon as the nodes have calcified, however, this is no longer possible or a high degree of effectiveness cannot be assumed.
In general, there are still a relatively large number of treatment options in the early stages. For example, ultrasound can be used to increase blood flow and reduce scarring. But the methods mentioned are not always sufficient.
If this is the case and there really is no alternative treatment option, surgery may be the only thing that helps. Surgery removes the scarring, allowing men to have sexual intercourse again as usual.
However, surgery comes at a high price, as the penis is shortened during the procedure. This is probably a thorn in the side of most men, which is why it is a good idea to try the other methods first.
Mechanical therapy in particular helps to avoid the need for surgery in many cases. However, in order to have a good chance of recovery – as with many other health complaints – it is important to recognize the disease in time and start treatment immediately.
