Understanding the Link Between Minor Penile Injuries and Peyronie's Disease

A small injury to the penis can trigger Peyronie's disease in men. Many men might not realise they have been injured at all.

You could be hit by a cricket ball in the private parts or incur a small injury looking after a child in a playground - What might seem an innocuous accident, like being hit by a swing or being over ambitious on a climbing frame, may become a life-changing event; especially for the silent majority, who are too embarrassed to seek medical help.

Peyronie's Disease Caused During Sexual Intercourse

With middle aged to older men, Peyronie's disease is often caused by injury during sexual intercourse. As we age our ability to get hard erections decreases. Our body's ability to channel up to 20 times as much blood into the penis to achieve and maintain an erection, decline as the blood vessels that accommodate the blood flow become less effective.

As a result, older men having sexual intercourse with a less rigid penis, have a greater risk of it being bent accidentally. This damage can lead to internal trauma, with microscopic bleeding and harm to the tissue, leading to scaring and the early onset of Peyronie's disease.

Whilst this is a highly sensitive subject, we do urge men to discuss this problem with their partners. There are some measures, which will significantly decrease the risk of injury and a subsequent onset of Peyronie's disease. It is also vitally important for men that have been cured of Peyronie's disease through focused shockwave therapy that they take steps to prevent a reoccurrence.

Managing Repeat Injury to the Penis

  • Speak with your partner so they are aware of the risk and be a little less free spirited.
  • Consider taking freely available medication like Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra. You may feel you don't need it, but it will help prevent injury.
  • Discuss with your partner whether vaginal lubrication would help. This can be purchased at any pharmacy.
  • If your manhood slips out during intercourse take care in re-entering. Be overcautious, rather than over-zealous.
  • Reconsider sexual positions. The most vulnerable position for a man is when their female partner is on top of them. Injury is extremely likely and if you have already suffered Peyronie's Disease there is a chance that you may trigger it again.

We appreciate that many of these recommendations are of a sensitive nature and our overall message is that you take more care and are more cautious and diligent when engaging in sexual intercourse.
