Peyronies, for guys, is a horrible disease.
For the guys that have Peyronies, we don’t need to go into too much detail here, but for those that have never heard of it, Peyronies is a dent or curvature of the penis due to an accident during sex where the penis is injured.
The Mayo Clinic sums it up and tells us that it is a noncancerous condition resulting from fibrous scar tissue that develops on the penis and causes curved, painful erections. Penises vary in shape and size, and having a curved erection isn’t necessarily a cause for concern. But Peyronie’s disease causes a significant bend or pain in some men. The scar tissue forms due to an injury and hence the bend.
For many men with Peyronies, it’s like one of those moments in life where you can see the world crashing in. You start catastrophising and think your sex life has ended and will never return. For younger guys that get this, it’s almost a death sentence. When they look at their penis when they get an erection, it’s bent now!! OMG, how will they ever have the confidence to meet a girl and show their penis? And, for older guys who are still single and dating women, it’s a massive shock to the system and kills off any desire to go dating to look for a partner.
Put yourself in their position. Just imagine now having a bent penis; in some cases, the curvature can be up to 30,40 or even 50% upwards or the side. And it doesn’t stop there. Peyronies can take on different shapes, like hourglass deformities or indents on both sides in different areas. It totally wrecks the look of your once most treasured possession.
And let’s add some fuel to the fire – it can hurt and be extremely painful, especially when you get an erection. And this pain can last many hours, days and even months. You end up having to take medication like anti-inflammatory tablets. Any chronic inflammation can distort the bones; look at the hands of people with arthritis and how the fingers are all bent. Now think about this in the penis, and you start to get a clearer picture of what I’m talking about. It’s a huge psychological issue for men suffering from Peyronies, and there’s no cure or treatment in 2023.
For guys with Peyronies, the last thing they want to do is have sex. The fear of what the other person will think of this bent penis is too frightening. Obviously, they won’t laugh at it, but they will either feel sorry for you (and you don’t want pity) or get turned off. And for the guys, this fear, rejection, or judgement starts snowballing and feeds into erectile dysfunction. There’s no getting around the fact that your bent penis will never return to its former glory, and this, for many guys, is quite possibly one of the worst things that can happen in their lives (if not the worst). It’s a massive understatement to say that it will pass, and you will accept it and get used to looking at this monstrosity; this can take years, and you might even need therapy or counselling. And sex, for starters, is on the back burner as getting an erection now is fraught with so many issues.
While there might not be a silver bullet to cure Peyronies, men can still get some help by taking erectile dysfunction tablets like Cialis daily, Viagra and Kamagra Oral Jelly 100mg. While this will definitely not help with the actual appearance and shape of the penis, it will allow guys to get their sex life back on track. It’s one small victory that may be able to consolidate men who are suffering terribly with Peyronies. With these medical treatments, you’ll be able to get an erection and have sex, but there is still the mental component and depression associated with Peyronies that you must come to terms with. Men’s Line is an excellent place to start if you feel overwhelmed with Peyronies and need to speak to someone. The critical takeaway here is that you’re not alone. Never feel isolated or worried that you’re the only person with this disease because you’re not, and it’s more common than you think. And remember, we are all human and come with lumps and bumps, and we are imperfect. Don’t believe what you see on porn sites as a normal penis because they are not! Plus, most people and partners will accept you for who you are and love you as a person and not your penis, and if they reject you because of this, they are not worth being with in the first place.
So stay positive and try to remember that in time, you WILL get used to this, and it will become part of you and the new normal, and you will find someone who will be there for you. Sex can happen and is not an issue, as there are always solutions.
