Peyronie's Disease, a severe bending or curvature of the penis, can be a devastating condition. Men who suffer from this disorder may experience painful erections, loss of erectile function, and inability to engage in intercourse. In some cases, shortening of the penis may also occur – an issue that no man, no matter how well-endowed originally, wants to face.
A number of options have been developed for dealing with these symptoms, running the gamut from taking a “Wait-and-see” approach to determine whether the symptoms progress; to at-home penis care with vitamins A and E; to surgically removing the scar tissue that is responsible for the condition. Surgery is usually the last resort, as it comes with some unwanted side effects. These may include erectile dysfunction, loss of penis sensation, and recurrence of the problem.
Men who are experiencing these problems may want to turn to their healthcare provider for assistance; however, there are also some steps that can be taken at home that may be successful in alleviating these, or at least preventing the symptoms from getting worse.
Dealing with sexual dysfunction. Men who have suffered from Peyronie's Disease are encouraged by specialists to continue having sex, as there is no indication that intercourse can cause the condition to return or worsen. The one caveat here is that men should exercise a degree of caution, avoiding overly-acrobatic bedroom maneuvers or positions that can potentially lead to injuries such as ruptured erectile tissue.
Men who do experience erectile problems and are unable to engage in intercourse successfully have some options for treatment. These may include relaxation techniques, the help of a sympathetic partner, exercise, nutritional supplements, and in some cases, prescription medications. Use of medications, not to mention prosthetic devices that some men may attempt to try, should only be carried out under the advice and supervision of a qualified health care professional.
Surgery for Peyronie’s disease can damage the nerve tissue that serves the penis, making it more difficult for men to experience pleasure from tactile stimulation. However, this does not mean that a man can no longer enjoy sexual activity. Retraining these nerves through varying forms of stimulation, learning to use visualization techniques, and promoting the regrowth of nerve tissue through supplementation and healthy lifestyle habits may help to restore lost sensation.
Recurrence of Symptoms
As previously mentioned, there is always the chance that further curvature may develop. In order to prevent this from taking place, it is important to exercise caution in terms of preventing injury. Keeping the penis well-moisturized, using a lubricant for all activity, and adding a vitamin cream containing vitamins E and A may help to prevent the development of scar tissue around the erectile chambers – this scarring is the source of the bending during erections that characterizes Peyronie's disease.
Use of a Penis Vitamin Cream
A penis health formula (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) containing penis-specific vitamins and other nutrients, as well as natural moisturizers, can help to prevent problems that may detract from a man’s enjoyment of sex, not to mention his quality of life. A variety of nutrients that can be applied directly to the penis on a daily basis have been shown to benefit the penile skin, nerve and connective tissue, working to prevent injury and healing damaged cells while promoting healthy circulation. Adding a penis cream to the daily penis care regimen can help to keep the penis feeling – as well as looking – healthy, youthful and attractive, at the same time protecting it from disease and injury.
