Symptoms and Treatment of Peyronie's Disease

Vaidya Visharad
Ayurveda, Narnaul
Symptoms and Treatment of Peyronie's Disease

Peyronie's disease is a type of Erectile Dysfunction. For men with this condition, an erection can be quite painful. This is caused by scar tissue or plaque that collects inside the penis and makes the penis bend upwards or to one side when erect. In most cases men with this disease can still have intercourse though it may be painful.

The exact cause for scar tissue to collect in the penis is not known. Researchers believe that it may be triggered by a traumatic accident that causes bleeding within the penis. You may not realize the extent of injury at the time of the accident. Genes have also been held responsible in some cases. Peyronie's disease is more common in middle aged men than young men but this condition is not a normal part of the aging process.

Symptoms of this disease may appear gradually or appear suddenly. Some of the common symptoms associated with it are:

  1. Scar tissue: This can be felt under the skin of the penis as a band of hard tissue or hard patches.
  2. A bend in the penis: A significant bend in the penis is a characteristic symptom of Peyronie's disease. With time this bend may stabilize or get worse.
  3. Pain: There may be pain in the penis with or without an erection.
  4. Erectile Dysfunction: The disease can make it difficult for a man to get or maintain an erection. This is mainly due to the pain.
  5. Shortened penis: The disease can make the penis appear shorter than before.

Mild cases of this disease rarely need treatment and it rectifies itself on its own. For more severe cases of the disease, a doctor may prescribe medication or suggest surgery. Medication is used to break down the plaque in the penis causing the bend. It works by addressing the buildup of collagen in the plaque. This medication is usually given via injections into the area of the penis affected.

If medication does not work, surgery is the next option. Surgery is usually prescribed only for men who cannot have sex because of the disease. There are two types of surgeries that can be performed.

  1. Removal of plaque and inserting a tissue graft in its place
  2. Nesbit procedure: the tissue of the penis on the opposite side of the scarring is removed. This may make the penis smaller.

In rare cases where a man has Peyronie's disease and Erectile Dysfunction, the doctor may also suggest a penile prosthesis. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Even though a woman can have sex during her pregnancy, make sure there is no history of any bleeding during the pregnancy or miscarriage. If the woman is tired she should not opt for sex. If there is any vaginal discharge, then also intercourse should be avoided. After sex vaginal toilet should be done. (i.e. Cleaning of the vaginal tract). Sex toys and lubricators should not be used at all. They can cause harmful effects. However simple lubricants can be used. But lubricants containing scents should not be used as chemicals in those scents can cause harm to the baby.
