Peyronie's Disease & Sex
The impact of Peyronie’s Disease on Sexual Intercourse can have a catastrophic impact on a patient and their partners sex life. Many couples ignore penis curvature for months or years before seeking any medical advice.
With around 10% of men in the UK suffering from this condition, the problem is far more prevalent than previously thought.
Unfortunately, the majority of men and their partners suffer in silence being none the wiser about available treatment and how this can rejuvenate their sex life. Talking about the health of your genitals should be as acceptable as talking about your digestive health for example.
The severity of the problem depends largely on how far the penis is bent.
Peyronie’s Disease Left Untreated
If the penis has a curvature of 10% then this will likely have little impact on overall sexual function. But if the curvature of the penis is 30 degrees or more, or occurs around the circumference, rather than on one side of the penis, then sex can be very difficult and in some cases impossible. Intercourse will also likely be further impaired by the onset of erectile dysfunction due to the changes of blood flow through the penis.
The increased curvature in the penis can also lead to further trauma and pain during sex, leading to further inflammation and scaring. That is why we recommend that men should not delay in seeking medical advice when experiencing this problem. So contact us soon by completing the form below.
