Penile Curvature or Peyronie’s Disease is an abnormal bend in the penis that occurs during erection. A man with Peyronie’s Disease has hardened or calcified tissues in his penis causing restriction and preventing the penis from expanding during an erection. This results in a curvature at that point of restriction. Though it cannot physically kill you, it can actually kill your sex life rather effectively.
Nearly 3 percent of the entire male population is estimated to be afflicted with Peyronie’s Disease. It usually occurs between the ages of 45 and 60, though it can also occur in men as young as 18.
Symptoms of the disease include:
• Painful erection making intercourse difficult or impossible
• Noticeable bend or arc in the penis with erection
• Noticeable narrowing of the diameter of the penis with erection
• Thick band of hard tissue within the penis
The exact cause of penile curvature is unknown but many researchers believe that the plaque of Peyronie’s Disease develops following trauma (hitting or bending) or vigorous sexual activity that causes localized bleeding inside the penis. Others trace it to diabetes, circulatory disorders, or a genetic link.
Many men with Peyronie’s Disease do not need any treatment. The disease sometimes clears up by itself, although it may take several years. Other men, however, do need treatment.
There are several drug treatments for those suffering from Peyronie’s Disease like Vitamin E or B-complex treatment, steroid and calcium channel blockers injections, and radiation therapy but these are mainly for the reduction of pain. The most well known treatment for the disease however, involves surgery.
So if you notice a slight bend or arc or in your penis during erection, you should immediately take action before it gets worse. The condition is typically progressive and leads to impotence or inability to have intercourse.
This is where the SizeGenetics system (http://www.sizegenetics.com) can help you. SizeGenetics is a ground-breaking system based on a combination of traction device and exercise program (primarily for penis enlargement), can also be used for correction of penile deviations or curvatures.
With the traction method, which is the foundation of the system, the penis cells are triggered to be trained or exercised naturally increasing their elasticity thus resulting in a reduced or completely eliminated curvature. This simply means that the constant, permanent stretch to the cells of your penis will strengthen the penile tissues thus reducing the likelihood of scarring resulting to Peyronie’s Disease.
