Peyronie’s Disease & Psychosexual Therapy
Psychosexual Therapy may not be necessary for all Peyronie’s Disease (PD) patients, because some men and their partners will be able to manage their emotional needs and know how to address them on their own. However, Psychosexual Therapy could certainly be helpful for the majority men and couples.
When dealing with PD both the patient and his partner’s doubts and emotions, including anxiety, fear, frustration, embarrassment and disgust need to be shared, dealt with and overcome.
Further important steps in Psychosexual Therapy will be working toward improving interpersonal communications and restoring intimacy if this has been avoided. Then, when the patient is pain free, enriching sexual interaction. If PD has been caused by a coital episode the therapist may work with the couple to help overcome the trauma.
If a PD patient has elected to have surgery, therapy, is often required to deal with any post-treatment frustration, such as penile shortening or loss of penile sensation.
With Shockwave Therapy no invasive surgery is undertaken so penile shortening or loss of penile sensation will not be a problem.
