Bent Penis: Peyronie's Disease

Three of 100 men suffer from Peyronie's disease, a bending of the penis during erection. The penis contains balloons that fill with blood to cause an erection. These balloons can develop a scar that prevents them from expanding normally during an erection, causing the penis to bend toward the scar. If you take a balloon and put a piece of Scotch tape on one side and then blow up the balloon, it will bend toward the side that has the Scotch tape. A report from Italy shows that Peyronie's disease can be cured by taking weekly injections of a medication to treat high blood pressure plus a drug that carries fat into cells.

Usually this is a harmless condition that requires no treatment because the scar disappears, with no treatment, within five years on the average. Impotence associated with Peyronie's disease responds well to all available treatments for impotence, such as Viagra. Doctors treat Peyronie's disease only when it hurts to have an erection or prevents a man from making love.

Surgery often fails to cure this condition, but Peyronie's disease can be cured by injections of verapamil directly into the scar in the penis (5 mg twice a week for 10 weeks) plus a 3-month administration of propionyl-L-carnitine (2 g/day). Check with your doctor.

A diagnosis of Peyronie's disease or curvature of the penis is usually made when men seek medical attention for painful erections and difficulty with intercourse. In some patients, they seek help because of severe curvature of the penis that may influence sexual life. One of Peyronie's disease signs is a plaque or hard lump on the penis. http://www.levitrabliss.com/

The chances of contracting erectile dysfunction goes up substantially with age, increasing significantly above the age of sixty-five-which is rapidly approaching for the baby boomers. Although erectile dysfunction becomes more likely with advancing age, there is certainly no age cutoff for a sexually fulfilling life. Some men enjoy sexual activity even in their eighties and nineties. http://www.buy-viagra-with-us.com

Erectile dysfunction is a common disease that can happen to anyone although it is more common in men over 40, it may affect all ages. In fact, almost all men experience difficulty in maintaining an erection. In many cases, it is a temporary condition and goes away with little or no treatment. In some cases, it can be an ongoing problem and requires treatment. http://www.viagrathunder.com

Viagra has been clinically shown to improve erectile function even in men who had diabetes or prostate surgery. The pill contains this component that helps increase blood flow to the penis and may help men with ED get and keep an erection satisfactory for sexual activity.

Peyronie’s disease is not a minor condition for many men. The bending and curving of the penis that results from scarring inside the penis can be severe enough that it can be extremely painful or curve so much sexual intercourse can be extremely difficult.

In most men, a certain degree of curvature in an erect penis is generally harmless; the curvature can lean slightly to the right or left.

But when your penis has at least a 15-degree curvature from the midline, then you may have Peyronie’s disease (PD) that can affect your sexual performance as well as self-confidence.

Fortunately, you can discuss medical and surgical interventions with your doctor.

Erectile dysfunction is a serious, troubling problem but you don’t have to just suffer silently. Numerous treatment options exist and many of these can deliver excellent results.

Before looking for a treatment, it’s very important to have your health thoroughly checked. ED could be the symptom of another medical issue. Having another medical problem ruled out will then make it easier to overcome ED and enjoy a much more satisfying sex life. helpful extenze website
