Life With A Curved Penis

3 Comment

My penis has a curve to the right for since I was a kid, I remember the curve, only when hard, it really wasn't a bother to me and being sexual, I mean I've masturbated as much as the other boys, if not Maybe slightly more, I guess you can say I was and still am a Chronic Masturbator.

I'm now 50 years old and my penis still curves to the right, to me it's​ kind of sexy though I've never been in pain when erect, but just the same not sure at my age it can be fixed or that I'm sure I want to fix it, like I said it's kind of sexy, and it's my unique feature on my body.

Thank you for sharing your experience with My Peyronie’s readers.

As you have had your curvature for as long as you remember you almost certainly have congenital curvature. This means you were born this way, i.e. nothing you have done, or not done, caused your curvature.

Congenital curvature is different from Peyronie’s curvature. It is not caused by scar tissue and therefore does not respond to treatments like traction or injections. The only treatment for congenital curvature is plication surgery.

However, as your curvature is mild and is not affecting your sex life or mental state then continuing to live with it sounds like a good and logical option to me. Actually, I must admit that I find your attitude refreshing and it could be inspiring for those that can still have good healthy sex life despite their curvature (whatever it’s congenital or Peyronie’s curvature).

Because treatment is not the only option, it can be perfectly valid option to do nothing, i.e. just learn to live with a curved penis. Men with Peyronie’s however should only make this decision after careful consideration of all their options (i.e. make an educated decision whatever the decision is).

Life with a curved penis can still be a very good life. As you rightly point out, being sexy has very little to do with the size and shape of the penis but it has a lot to do with attitude. A man that is content with his body, including his “unique features”, is likely to be sexier than a man with “perfect body” (as that exists) and low self-esteem.

So even if you are dealing with congenital curvature I’m putting this under Coping With Peyronie’s as I believe this approach could benefit some men with Peyronie’s curvature.

Again, thank you for sharing your experience and I wish you all the best in the future.

Kind regards,

For about 1.5 years I've been dealing with a curve to the left of penis.  Perhaps hereditary or mYne some trauma caused by some rough fun between my fiance and myself.  Last month I visited a urologist who quickly examined my penis and looked at a picture I had taken while erect and said if I wasn't in pain not to worry about it. I would like to know if this is 'just the way it's going to be" or are there any legitimate fixes out there. I've looked into traction devices that seemed ridiculous. I'm only 50..... So would like to think there is some hope out there.

    I personally don’t agree with the “wait & see” approach recommended by the urologist you saw. I personally would seek a second opinion and look for a doctor that has experience of treating men with Peyronie's disease (not all Urologists have the right experience).

    There is no cure as such for Peyronie’s but there are number of treatment options. This article compares the most common treatment options today and contains direct links for further information. Hopefully it can help you to identify which options may be suitable for you.

    You mention traction therapy. It is often recommended as it is non-invasive, safe and relatively inexpensive treatment option. This article contains links to the most relevant articles about traction therapy. I can understand that traction therapy may look brutal at first glance but it has helped many men reduce their curvature, myself included.

    Traction can be used on its own but also with other treatment options, e.g. Pentoxifylline and even injections. This is actually what Dr. Levine, one of the best known Peyronie’s experts in the word today, generally recommends for his non-surgical patients. I strongly recommend reading my interview with him as it contains lot of valuable information about the different treatment options.

    I hope this is some help and I wish you all the best with your treatment.

    Best regards,
