Our Takeaways:

· Peyronie’s disease can cause the penis to curve or bend in an abnormal manner.

· Trauma is the typical cause of Peyronie’s.

· Exercises may be used with good effects to help resolve Peyronie’s without surgery.

Peyronie’s Disease is a medical condition that makes the male sexual reproductive organ curve. It loses its strength and girth due to the prevalence of scar tissue surrounding the affected area.

Peyronie’s disease is a common scar tissue disease, affecting 1 in 200 men, and can be acquired due to various reasons. It generally occurs due to:

· Physical injury
· Rough sexual intercourse
· Rough masturbation
· Accidents
· Trauma to the penis

While there are effective methods to treat Peyronie’s disease, such as with injection and surgical removal, Peyronie’s exercises can also help to reduce PD symptoms when completed in tandem with medical guidance and treatments for PD and sexual health.

The most effective time to reduce the symptoms is as early as possible to prevent it from getting into a progressively worse state. This erectile dysfunction disease can be improved effectively by using some of the best-known exercises for Peyronie’s Disease.

Are Peyronie’s Disease Exercises Safe?

Yes. Penile exercises for Peyronie’s Disease are fairly low risk and can even make you feel more comfortable in your body.

However, it’s also crucial to note that certain studies have disputed the use of manual penile exercises because of the lack of credible evidence available at this time in the research process.

It’s important to consult a medical ED professional for a specialized diagnosis and treatment that is unique to your situation, to support any PD exercises you may attempt to perform on your own.

Now let’s cover five of the most common Peyronie’s Disease Exercises to consider implementing.

1. Peyronie’s Disease Exercise: Jelqing

Also known as milking, Jelqing is a non-invasive, device-less penis stretching exercise.

First, you’ll gently massage the base of the penis and motion a circle shape around it. You’ll need to use your thumb and index finger to massage it, slowly tightening the circle and applying pressure to the penis shaft. Then, you inch closer to the penis head and repeat the cycle. Also, keep in mind to reduce any pressure if you encounter any pain.

A single cycle of this massage technique will take around 3 to 5 seconds. Do this for a total of 20 minutes daily for the best outcome.

2. Peyronie’s Disease Exercise: Penis Stretching

Does stretching really help Peyronie’s Disease?

While penis stretching is less accredited by scientific research, it may serve a benefit in combination with medical treatments. Additionally, it is a fairly simple exercise that you can do at home.

Here are the steps to perform penile stretching:

Clutch your penis and pull it vertically upwards. Keep the stance of your stretched penis still for 10 seconds.
After the 10 seconds have passed, pull it to the right and hold for 10 seconds.
After 10 seconds, pull it to the left this time.
Repeat steps 1 to 3 twice every day.

3. Peyronie’s Disease Exercise: Vacuum Erection Devices (VED)

A vacuum erection device is a tool used to help provide men with straighter erections. Men can use the VED, also known as a penis pump, by placing their erect penis inside a cylinder tube. The penis gets pulled in by a suction, and in doing so, this helps produce the effect of a normal erection.

A 2020 study showed promising results of VED. While the participant base is small at just 53 participants, those who had undergone VED traction therapy (n=20) showed significant curvature improvements in their penis compared to those who didn’t use a VED.

The search for more potent alternatives to treating Peyronie’s disease has led some men to try vacuum suspension devices in addition to massaging and stretching exercises.

4. Peyronie’s Disease Exercise: Penile Traction Therapy (PTT)

Penile Traction Therapy (PTT) is a non-surgical treatment for penile curvature that corrects deformities and restores the length of the penis. It’s a novel and seemingly safe approach to correct penis length that uses an external device. The device consists of a plastic support ring, a silicone band, and two dynamic rods, which all cradle and stretch the penis to promote its growth.

Further study and testing by medical experts are required to confirm that it may be used by anybody. However, a recent 2019 study has proven its modest effectiveness in correcting penile curvature in the earlier stage of the disease. It also improves the success rate of people who’ll undergo surgery for more severe cases of Peyronie’s disease.

5. Peyronie’s Disease Exercise: Penile Modeling

Penile modeling is frequently performed by your urologist in conjunction with collagenase injections. It entails manually bending your penis at the direction opposite of where your penis naturally curves due to Peyronie’s disease.

For more severe cases, penile modeling is used in conjunction with insertion of an inflatable prosthesis as part of a surgical procedure.

A study conducted in 2020 concluded that this procedure had a 82% effectiveness rate in reducing penile curvature after 3 months. After 6 months, this jumped to a 92% effectiveness rate.

Don’t try doing this method by yourself. You may risk injury, bruising, or permanent damage, so consult a doctor to see if you’re fit for this procedure.

Does Exercise Help Peyronie’s Disease?

Exercises can support Peyronie’s Disease symptoms; however, medical treatments are often required in addition to this when considering optimal penile health.

Exercises for Peyronie’s Disease should not make your curve worse or cause pain. Rather, it often helps to straighten the penis and bring it back to its normal shape when you have an erection.

Before initiating these PD exercises, it’s best to seek treatment with your doctor to gain access to specific and customized care that fits your needs.

Consult a Sexual Health Professional for a Medical Approach to Treating Peyronie’s Disease

While Peyronie’s Disease is often treated by surgery, there are alternatives to support in reducing the physical deformities of your penis by taking a multi-faceted approach to treatment.

Using a combination of massages, stretches, and other penile exercises, there have been many successful attempts in curing Peyronie’s disease without surgery.

Nonetheless, having a doctor supervise your Peyronie’s disease treatment is not just optimal—it’s mandatory.

Curvatures; Stretching Angles: Ask The Experts

Curvatures; Stretching Angles: Ask The Experts

Big Al, of MaleEnhancementCoach.com, answers questions about curvatures and stretching angles.

If you have questions you’d like answered in an Ask the Experts article, please PM Big Al.

Q. I have a slight curve in my penis which bends to the right.

I’m right-handed, if that matters. The curve isn’t due to Peyronie’s nor does it bother me much, but I want to straighten it out anyway. What method do you recommend to accomplish this goal?

Al: The type of curvature you describe was once colloquially termed a “hand made dick”. This is due to masturbation AKA “handling”- usually with the dominant hand. Performed vigorously and often enough, tissues will tend to get stretched on the opposite side- leading to this condition. The least invasive way to counter this issue would be to use the opposite hand for the majority of your work (in this case, your left hand), and make a concerted effort to pull towards the left. If this fails to yield satisfactory results after some weeks, more concerted means of correcting the curve should be looked into- like Erect Bends.

 

Q. When doing my stretches, I perform them seated and point my penis towards the floor.

I’ve also been experimenting with adjusting the angles of stretch in this position. What angles do you suggest for getting the most out mo my stretches?

Al: You can stretch at most any angle to better target specific aspects of the penis. An example: some stretch straight up as they feel this pulls more of the “inner penis” out by its root. If you’re looking to better target the suspensory ligament, leaning back slightly will give you a more intense stretch. Some prefer to stretch pulling towards the rear- in a “between the cheeks” (BTC) manner.  An extreme version of this is the LAS (Lazy Ass Stretch)- where you actually sit on your penis [The difference between BTC ands LAS Stretches].

It’s recommended you reduce the amount of reps and force when testing out new angles. Really focus on the FEEL of the stretch to determine where it’s having the most impact.

You’ll need to test out the various possibilities to see what works best for your goals.

Types of penises: Shape, size, circumcision, and more

What to know about types of penises

Medically reviewed by Joseph Brito III, MD — Written by Mathieu Rees on November 23, 2020

This article is a repost which originally appeared on MEDICAL NEWS TODAY

Edited for content

The penis is a male organ with functions that include reproduction and urination. As with any body part, no two people have the same penis.

The penis has two main features. The body, or shaft, connects the penis to the abdomen. At the opposite end of the shaft is the glans, or head.

This article lists some common types of penises, categorized primarily by measurement, and provides some related information.

Length

Penises come in different lengths when flaccid or erect.

Estimates about average penis length can vary. For example, one 2014 study looked at the penis size of United States males. It found that the average erect length was around 5.6 inches.

However, another article suggests there are issues with many penis length studies, including the fact that participants self-report measurements.

These studies use self-reported data and are therefore subject to bias, which likely fuels the widespread belief that the average penis size is closer to 6 inches. In reality, the average is likely to be lower

Girth

Penises also have different girths or circumferences.

A 2014 study into the penis size of U.S. males found that the average erect girth was around 4.8 inches.

However, as with penis length, a person should note that many penis girth studies use self-reported measurements, which are known to be fairly unreliable.

Curvature

Some penises are completely straight when erect. However, many have a bend or curvature. There are three main types of curved penis. These include penises that:

  • curve upwards from its base
  • curve downwards from its base
  • curve to the left or right

Additionally, some people may have multiple kinds of curvature. For instance, some penises may curve to the left and upwards.

Penile curvatures are common and typically benign. They are rarely painful and do not usually make penetrative sex more difficult.

However, abnormal penile curvature can sometimes be a symptom of Peyronie’s disease. One review lists the following as possible symptoms:

  • a thickened area, or plaque, in the penile shaft
  • curvature of the penis during erection
  • pain in the penis
  • erectile dysfunction

Scientists are not sure what causes Peyronie’s disease.

One common explanation is that the condition results from mild, recurring trauma to the penis. This can occur during intercourse or masturbation.

Peyronie’s disease can also be due to a rupture in the penis, known as a penile fracture. Genetic factors may also contribute to the development of this condition.

Anybody who suspects they may have Peyronie’s disease should seek medical advice. Sometimes, people with the condition who experience no other issues, such as pain, could still use their penis for sexual activity without needing medical treatment.

In some cases, doctors may recommend surgery to remove the plaque or reduce the curvature in the penis.

The base to head ratio

For some people, the circumference of the base of their penile shaft is the same as the circumference of their penile head.

For others, this ratio is different. Some may have a penile head with more girth than the base of their shaft, or vice versa.

Circumcised and uncircumcised

A person with a penis is born with a retractable layer of skin that covers the penile head, commonly referred to as the foreskin.

Many people around the world have their foreskin surgically removed, in a process known as male circumcision.

A trained person may carry out male circumcision on children and adults, often for cultural or religious reasons. Doctors can also perform them in medical treatments.

Circumcised penises do not have a foreskin, which means that the glans is always visible. Uncircumcised penises have a foreskin, which often covers the glans, especially when the penis is flaccid.

Some infants can be born without a foreskin, which is a condition called hypospadias. Here, the opening of the penis is not found at the tip. Surgery is usually required to correct this issue.

Uncircumcised men can also develop phimosis, where the foreskin cannot retract over the hood of the glans. This can lead to irritation and infection. People with the condition generally require medical circumcision.

Because circumcision is a surgical process, it can sometimes lead to health issues, including:

  • infection
  • necrosis of the penile head
  • cut to the penile head or urethra
  • penile loss

However, people should note that this procedure is very common. Infections following circumcision, one of the most common possible complications, affect just 0.5% of people.

Summary

Many internet sources misinform and perpetuate myths about penises. In reality, they are highly varied, just like other body parts.

Anyone who has concerns about their penis can seek medical advice from a trained professional.

Male Sexual Worries: Trends in the Post-Viagra Age

Male Sexual Worries: Trends in the Post-Viagra Age

Scientists report a change in why men seek help for sexual problems, with fewer men complaining about impotence (erectile dysfunction) and premature ejaculation, and more men, especially younger men, complaining about low sexual desire and curvature of the penis (Peyronie’s disease).

Presenting the work at the European Association of Urology (virtual) Congress, after recent acceptance for publication, research leader Dr. Paolo Capogrosso (San Raffaele Hospital, Milan, Italy) said:

“Over a 10 year period we have seen a real change in what concerns men when they attend sexual health clinics. This is probably driven by greater openness, and men now accepting that many sexual problems can be treated, rather than being something they don’t want to talk about.”

The success of erectile dysfunction treatments such as Viagra and Cialis, and the availability of new treatments, means that men facing sexual problems have now have treatments for sexual problems which weren’t available a generation ago. Now researchers at San Raffaele Hospital in Milan have studied why men come to sexual health clinics, and how this has changed over a 10-year period.

In what is believed to be the first research of its kind, the scientists questioned 3244 male visitors to the San Raffaele Hospital Sexual Health Clinic in Milan over a 10 year period (2009 to 2019), and classified the main reason for the visit. They found that the number of patients visiting with erectile dysfunction problems increased from 2009 to 2013, then started to decrease.

There were comparatively few patients complaining of low sex drive or Peyronie’s disease in 2009, but complaints about both of these conditions grow from 2009 to the end of the study. In 2019 men were around 30% more likely to report Peyronie’s disease than in 2009, and around 32% more likely to report low sexual desire.

The amount of men complaining of premature ejaculation dropped by around 6% over the 10-year period. The average age of first attendance at the clinical also dropped, from a mean of 61 to 53 years.

“Erectile dysfunction is still the main reason for attending the clinic, but this number is dropping, whereas around 35% of men attending the clinic now complain of Peyronie’s disease, and that number has shown steady growth,” said Paolo Capogrosso. “Our patients are also getting younger, which may reflect a generational change in attitude to sexual problems.”

Dr. Capogrosso continued “We need to be clear about what these figures mean. They do not indicate any change in the prevalence of these conditions, what they show is why men came to the clinic. In other words, it shows what they are concerned about. The changes probably also reflect the availability of treatments; as treatments for sexual conditions have become available over the last few years, men are less likely to suffer in silence.”

These are results from a single centre, so they need to be confirmed by more inclusive studies. “Nevertheless there seems to be a growing awareness of conditions such as Peyronie’s disease, with articles appearing in the popular press*. In addition, we know that the awareness of this condition is increasing in the USA and elsewhere, so this may be a general trend,**” said Dr. Capogrosso.

Commenting, Dr Mikkel Fode (Associate Professor of Urology at University of Copenhagen), said:

“Although these data are somewhat preliminary as they stem from single institution they are interesting because they allow us to formulate several hypotheses. For example the drop in men presenting with erectile dysfunction may mean that family physicians are becoming more comfortable addressing this issue and that the patients are never referred to specialized centers. Likewise, the simultaneous drop in age at presentation and increase in Peyronie’s disease and low sex drive could indicate that both men and their partners are becoming more mindful to optimizing their sex lives. I will be very interesting to see if these trends are also present in other centers around the world.”

There Are 20 Different Penis Types — and They’re All Normal!

There Are 20 Different Penis Types — and They’re All Normal!

Medically reviewed by Jennifer Litner, LMFT, CST on January 29, 2020 — Written by Adrienne Santos-Longhurst

This article is a repost which originally appeared on HealthLine

Penises are as unique as the people they hang from, and they’re all good. More than good, really.

There’s no such thing as a bad shape or size — just bad information on how to use it.

Here’s how to feel great about what you’ve got and what to do with it.

What’s the typical shape?

If there’s anything typical about penis shape, it’s that most tend to be cylinder-ish, often with a wider — or at least a more pronounced — head.

Curved upward

Like a banana, this penis curves slightly upward, at least when it’s erect.

The upward curve means an advantage when it comes to stimulating all the right spots for toe-curling, full-body orgasms: the G-spot, A-spot, and prostate.

Pro tip: You can keep it simple with any variation of the missionary position and still rock their world thanks to that curve. That goes for P-in-V and anal sex.

Curved downward

Flip that banana around and you’ve got this shape, which is basically a penis with a slight downward curve. Again, the curve is noticeable only during an erection.

Pro tip: Turn that frown upside down with rear-entry positions that make A-, G-, and P-spot stimulation a breeze. Riding into the sunset is a must-try!

C-shaped

This type of penis has a noticeable curve to the right. If you or your partner is rockin’ a major curve, a willingness to experiment with different angles is a must.

Positions that allow you to work the curve toward the front wall of the vagina or rectum give you the same hot-spot advantage as those with banana shapes.

Pro tip: Try the T-bone. This delectable position begins with the penetrating partner on their side with their curve pointed toward the sky. The receiving partner lies on their back in a T angle and drapes their legs over their partner’s hip, ready for P-in-V or anal.

Straight

The straight penis maintains pretty much the same shape from shaft to head.

With no angles to accommodate, you can eenie-meenie-miney-mo your way through every sex position you both consent to with little-to-no tweaking required.

Pro tip: Give and get the most with any position that makes it easy to reach each other’s erogenous zones for simultaneous manual or sex toy play.

Bigger base with narrow head

This penis is thicker at the base and narrows as you get closer to the head, giving it a cone-esque shape.

Like other shapes, this one’s got some solid perks. The narrower head makes for easier entry, and a wider base provides more stimulation the deeper you go.

Pro tip: If you’re both open to anal, the cone is basically built for butt play because the gradual increase in girth is perfect for stretching the anus. Use a lot of lube and tease with just the tip before going deeper.

Narrow base with larger head

The hammer penis, which is long and thin with a much larger head, has all the makings for a good nailing. Wink.

The extra girth at the tip stimulates the vaginal or rectal walls, which will feel good for both of you.

Pro tip: Choose positions that allow the receiver to open wide and stimulate their clit or penis at the same time for easier entry. Classics like missionary and cow are totally hammer-friendly.

Where do length and girth come in?

Penises don’t just come in different shapes, but lengths and thicknesses, too.

Regardless of the combo you’re working with, the right moves can make them all O-inducing.

Smaller-than-average length and girth

The “gherkin” falls on the shorter and narrower side of average, but don’t let its smaller stature fool you. It doesn’t need to be big to be ahh-mazing.

Pro tip: If you wanna go deep, some positions are better than others. Doggy style is one of the best for any type of sex with a smaller-than-average penis. If you’re flexible, the pile driver is fan-freaking-tastic.

Shorter-than-average length and thick girth

The “kielbasa” is shorter, stout, and able to stimulate the vaginal or rectal walls like nobody’s business.

There are oodles of sensitive nerve-endings packed in and around either entry point, so the shorter length makes for some pretty toe-curling penetration for both parties.

Pro tip: Use lots of lube, take it slow, and master the dog positions, like traditional doggy or downward-facing dog (yes, like the yoga pose), if you want to go deep and hit the G-, A-, or P-spot.

Average length and girth

Congrats, Goldicocks! The “cucumber” isn’t too big or too small, but just right for any position you want to try.

Pro tip: Experiment to find your most mind-blowing positions! Try variations on all the classics and throw some standing sex positions into the mix.

Larger-than-average length and girth

The “salami” is the type of appendage you’re most likely to see in porn: long and thick.

While it may leave some jumping for joy, it can also be a little daunting to take in — literally.

The key to making the most of it is lots of lube and positions that let the receiver have more control.

Pro tip: Lube up and try positions that allow the partner on the receiving end to keep their legs tight to control the depth. You can do this with missionary, spooning, and even rear-entry positions.

Larger-than-average length and thin girth

To be clear, the “pencil” type isn’t actually pencil-thin, but it’s notably longer and narrower than average.

To make the best use of a thin penis, stick to tight-legged positions. The tighter space is pleasurable for both and still lets the receiver control how much of the length they take in.

Pro tip: You’ve gotta try spooning. Coming in from behind creates a tight space and requires extra length — which this type’s got — to reach. Spooning also works for anal and can be ramped up by adding a dildo for some DP action. You’re welcome.

How does skin tone affect the color?

Regardless of race, a penis can be considerably different from the rest of the person it’s attached to. The same goes for vulvas and nipples.

This is because our sex hormones regulate melanocyte cells. These are skin cells that release melanin, which is responsible for pigmentation.

Rising testosterone levels throughout life leads to darker skin down there. The color can appear brown or grayish.

And during erection, blood flow can make it reddish or even purple.

It’s all totally normal and has zero impact on function.

Hair, foreskin, and more

Adding to their charm and character are other traits like hair, foreskin, and veins.

Let’s take a closer look at some of these attributes and how to handle them.

Circumcised

Circumcised penises — which make up around 70 percent of penises in the United States — have had the foreskin removed. This means the head is on display at all times, and there’s no need to pull back skin to access it.

Pro tip: Foreskin doesn’t make any difference in regard to your partner’s pleasure, but using lube could minimize chafing for you during a long or particularly snuggly sesh.

Uncircumcised

An uncircumcised penis has the foreskin intact. Only part of the head is visible unless it’s erect and, even then, it depends on how much skin there is.

Pro tip: Foreskin works like a sleeve o’ pleasure when enjoying solo or partnered hand action. Alternate between sliding it back and forth over the head and gently pulling it back and exposing the head for some targeted attention.

Hairy

Hair around the base of the penis and balls is pretty much a given unless it’s shaved off. You may even notice a few stragglers on the shaft. It’s all good!

Pro tip: If you’re going au naturel, be sure to keep things clean and fresh. If you or your partner prefers a trim or hairless nether region, take care to avoid painful mishaps.

Smooth

With not a vein or bump in sight, a smooth penis makes for a silky smooth entry.

Pro tip: Want more? Mix things up with textured condoms or a cock ring for a totally different sensation.

Veiny

Some cocks have uber-accentuated veins, especially when they’re aroused.

A veiny penis comes down to genetics and muscle and is totally not a big deal.

Pro tip: Too much? Look to thicker or differently textured condoms to help prevent overstimulation.

Freckled

Freckles come down to pigmentation that can be more pronounced in some areas than others. It’s purely aesthetic.

Pro tip: Freckles on any skin is totally normal, but if you or your partner is worried about the spotted appearance, hit pause and talk to a doctor or other healthcare provider before taking things further.

Shower

A shower refers to a penis that stays pretty much the same size whether it’s erect or not.

Experts don’t know why it happens, but it appears to be relatively common according to the research available.

Pro tip: Proceed as usual!

Grower

Most penises are growers, which mean they get bigger when they’re hard.

Pro tip: Nothing more to do except get busy!

The bottom line

No one type is better than another, so try to focus on the pleasure it’s capable of instead of its appearance.

That said, keeping an eye out for any new or unusual changes in appearance is important.

See a doctor or other healthcare provider if you or your partners notice any new lumps or areas of discoloration. These could be a sign of an STI, injury, or other underlying a condition.

6 Warning Signs from Your Penis

meat penis blood penis

meat penis blood penisWe talk a lot about listening to your physiological indicators, when doing penis exercises. But, your penis is a really good barometer of your health, in general.

Let’s take a look at 6 warning signs your penis may be giving you.

  1. Challenges with Your Erection Quality – If your erections aren’t as hard as they once were, or you’re having erectile dysfunction two or more times per month, then this could be a warning sign from your penis. “Blood vessels in the penis are significantly smaller and start to narrow long before those in the heart or brain,” says urologist Dr Darius Paduch. In fact, an Austrian study found that the risk of developing heart disease within 10 years was 65% higher in men with moderate or severe erectile dysfunction than in men without ED.
    ..
  2. Decreased Sex Drive – If you find your sex drive significantly decreased, and your partner tells you you snore – it might be sleep apnea. Men with reduced nightime oxygen intake, due to sleep apnea have been shown to have an 11% lower sex drive. In addition, sleep apnea can result in a reduction in testosterone, which also negatively affects sex drive.
    .
  3. Pink or Red Urine – Optimally, you should be so well-hydrated that your urine is pale yellow, at its darkest. But, if you notice the toilet bowl with a pink or red tinge, it could be something serious. “Blood can be a sign of prostate, bladder or kidney disease, so you need to find out where the blood is coming from,” says Kevin Billups, MD, an associate professor of urology at Johns Hopkins Medicine.
    .
  4. Blood in Your Semen – Although blood in your semen usually isn’t typically a foretelling of a very serious health issue, like blood in the urine, it’s still something that needs to be addressed. You could have prostatitis, a gland inflammation that’s often caused by an E. coli infection. If this is the case, antibiotics are needed.
    .
  5. Reduced Penis Sensitivity – If your penis isn’t as sensitive as it used to be, it could be from a variety of things, including rough masturbation. However, it also might be a sign that you need to eat more B12 and folate.  Be sure you’re eating enough eggs, milk, cheese,  beef, fish, shellfish and poultry, for B12. And be sure to eat enough leafy greens, citrus fruits and beans for folic acid. “A deficiency in these vitamins can prevent nerve fibres in your penis from carrying signals to your brain,” says Dr Paduch. Also, be sure to have your blood sugar tested. Reduced sensitivity in your penis may be a sign of diabetes or pre-diabetes.
    .
  6. A Curved Penis – 23% of men over the age of 40 get Peyronie’s Disease. This penis curve happens when collagen plaque forms on the connective tissue surrounding the spongy interior of the penis, causing it to curve. For some men, this is a genetic condition; however, for some it may be due to uncontrolled diabetes. High glucose levels alter stem cells in your penis, encouraging plaque to form.

So, listen to your penis! If it’s telling you something’s wrong – believe it! Talk to your doctor. Be honest about what you’re experiencing. It may actually save your life.

Using a Penis Pump to Correct Peyronie’s Disease Study

Using a Penis Pump to Correct Peyronie's Disease Study

using a penis pump to correct curved penisTraditionally, penis extenders are what we think of when we’re talking about correcting penis curvature (Peyronie’s Disease). Peyronie’s Disease is characterized by a plaque on the penis that causes bending.

One study showed how effective penis pumps can be in helping to alleviate this condition. Published in the British Journal of Urology International, a leading urology journal that provides the highest standard of research & clinical information for the urological community, this was a pretty interesting study. Check it out below!

Participants of the Using a Penis Pump to Correct Peyronie’s Disease Study

31 patients, all with Peyronie’s Disease, were selected for the study. They ranged in age from 24 to 71 years old, with a mean age of 51. All patients were considering undergoing surgery to correct their penis curve.

The Process of Using a Penis Pump  to Correct Peyronie’s Disease Study

The participants were asked to use a penis pump two times per day, for 10 minutes each session. After 12 weeks of penis pump usage, the following measurements were compared to study entry measurements. These included:

  • The International Index of Erectile Function questionnaire,
  • A perceived pain intensity score,
  • Stretched penile length measurement, and
  • The angle of penile deformity.

The Results of Using a Penis Pump to Correct Peyronie’s Disease Study

According to the research results, not only did participants see an increase in penis length (which we know penis pumps can do), but the angle of curvature was statistically significantly improved. Of the 31 patients, 21 of them had the angle of curvature reduced by 5 to 25 degrees!

Of the 31 participants, 16 (51%) were so happy with the outcome of the penis pump usage in just those 12 short weeks, they decided not to undergo surgery.

FDA Approves the 1st Drug Treatment for Peyronie’s Disease

xiaflex peyronies disease

xiaflex peyronies diseaseIn December 2013, the FDA approved the first drug treatment for Peyronie’s Disease — Xiaflex (collagenase clostridium histolyticum).

This is the first non-surgical treatment option the FDA has officially approved.

Peyronie’s Disease

Peyronie’s Disease is a curvature of the penis. Scar tissue under the penis’s skin causes the penis to bend abnormally during an erection. Although many men have a natural slight curve to their penis, Peyronie’s Disease is diagnosed when this curvature is at least 30 degrees during erection. This curvature can lead to problems during intercourse and even erectile dysfunction.

Xiaflex

Xiaflex is made from the protein of a living organism called – collagenease clostridial histolyticum. Xiaflex was first approved as a treatment for Dupuytren’s contracture — a progressive disease that affects a person’s ability to properly straighten and use the fingers of their hand, due to a build up of collagen. It is surmised Xiaflex also breaks down the build up of collagen scar tissue, that forms the curvature of the penis, for those suffering from Peyronie’s disease.

Treatment with Xiaflex

Treatment for Peyronie’s disease with Xiaflex is as follows:

  • A maximum of four treatment cycles.
  • Each treatment cycle consists of two injections of Xiaflex into the collagen-containing structure of the penis.
  • A penile modeling procedure (the massaging of the penis to help break up the collagen) is conducted 1 to 3 days after the second injection.

Xiaflex Studies

Two randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled studies have demonstrated Xiaflex’s effectiveness for treating Peyronie’s disease.

  • 832 men, with Peyronie’s disease and a curvature of at least 30 degrees, participated in the studies.
  • Participants were given up to 4 treatment cycles of Xiaflex or the placebo and followed for 52 weeks.
  • Xiaflex was found to significantly reduce the penile curvature as well as the effects of Peyronie’s disease, when compared with the placebo.

Risks Associated with Xiaflex

Xiaflex for Peyronie’s disease is only available through a restricted program under a Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy, through your doctor, due to the potentially serious adverse reactions. This can include penile fracture, where one of the penile bodies ruptures, and other serious penis injury. Other adverse side effects include: penile swelling, penile pain, and penile hematoma.

For this reason, Xiaflex should only be administered by a medical professional who has experience treating male urological diseases and who are certified within the program, by completing training in how to administer Xiaflex for Peyronie’s disease.
