How To Cure Peyronie's Disease
Looking for information on how to cure Peyronie's disease? Some men are able to have sex with Peyronie's disease and some are not. Generally speaking, doctors will not pursue treatment options for Peyronie's disease if you don't experience any penile pain, if the bend in your penis is not severe or does not become worse, and if you can still participate in sexual intercourse that satisfies both yourself and your partner. Keep in mind that there are no guarantees that the below Peyronie's disease treatment options will cure the medical condition.
To cure Peyronie's disease, you will need to:
- Visit a doctor
- Oral Medications. Unfortunately, oral medications for Peyronie's disease are still in the discovery phase. There have been quite a few different oral medications that have been tested for Peyronie's disease. However, none of the oral medications are yet supported by reliable data that indicates that the medication can cure Peyronie's disease. If you are not interested in any of the other Peyronie's disease treatment options that are discussed below, it is possible that your doctor could enroll you in a clinical trial for the oral medication.
- Penile Injections. Even though there has been limited research performed on penile injections as a form of treatment for Peyronie's disease, they have been proven to reduce the bend that is often associated with Peyronie's disease. If you decide to go with penile injections, your doctor will likely inject a drug into the plaques of your penis. Drugs that are commonly used for penile injections include interferon, verapamil, and collagenase. Unfortunately, you will have to undergo multiple penile injections over a course of a few months before you see any results.
- Surgery. If you are unable to have sex as a result of Peyronie's disease or if the bend in your penis becomes worse, your doctor may suggest surgery as a treatment option. Surgical procedures that are typically associated with Peyronie's disease include lengthening of the affected side of the penis, shortening of the unaffected side of the penis, and penis implants. The type of surgery that your doctor recommends for you will depend upon the severity of the penile deformity that you have as a result of Peyronie's disease. Generally speaking, the above surgeries are outpatient procedures.
Tips: If you experience pain while having sex or if you are unable to maintain an erection long enough to have sex, you should make an appointment with your doctor as soon as possible. Your doctor can diagnose you with Peyronie's disease by examining your penis and performing an ultrasound of your penis.
