Five Myths About Peyronie’s Disease
Peyronie’s disease is one of the common sexual dysfunctions men suffer from today. This is a condition in which a man suffers from the extreme bending of his penis. This extreme bending is usually painful during erections and penetrations.
Peyronie’s disease can adversely affect a man’s sex life by lowering his self-esteem and inhibiting vaginal penetrations. All these can result in a frustrated sex life. Many people tend to misunderstand what this condition exactly entails. The following are the five myths about the Peyronie’s disease;

Furthermore, you cannot transmit Peyronie’s disease to another person through any means. The good thing is that Peyronie’s disease can be treated through the use of a penis extender. The device applies the process of penile traction to pull the penis thereby making it assume straightness. This, when done frequently and consistently, force the penis to become permanently straight in shape.

Fact: The most common cause of the Peyronie’s disease is an injury to the penis. Nonetheless, diabetes and hypertension have also been linked to this condition. Therefore, it is wrong to think that the Peyronie’s disease has no cause. Candidly, a straight penis wouldn’t just end up bending without any reason. In most cases, men develop this condition after puberty when the penis has grown big.
Surgery is the only and best option for curing Peyronie’s disease
Fact: Apart from surgery, the Peyronie’s disease can also be treated through the use of a penis extender device. This device is considered the safest and most-effective way of handling the Peyronie’s disease. On the other hand, surgery is the riskiest and expensive way of treating this condition. Besides, you are not guaranteed a complete eradication of this condition through the surgical operation as there are chances that it can recur later.
Peyronie’s disease and erectile dysfunction are not are not connected
In most cases, the Peyronie’s disease is responsible for erectile dysfunction. Most men suffering from an extreme bending of the penis tend to face a difficulty in achieving erections or sustaining the erections during a sexual encounter. Typically, the Peyronie’s disease can subject a man to extreme pain making him not to think of having erections or engaging in sexual intercourse.
Peyronie’s disease only affects the young age
Fact: According to several studies, the Peyronie’s disease is common to those men aged between 45 and 65 years. This condition rarely affects young men. Only about 10% of those patients suffering from this condition are aged below 40 years. Therefore, Peyronie’s disease is a condition not only affecting the young men but also the older men. An injury to the penis can occur at any age in one’s life hence may result in this condition.
