Curvature of the Penis
Most cases of curved penises are caused by a disease known as Peyronie’s. It was named after the brilliant XVII century French surgeon Francois de la Peyronie.
The diseases that was named after him is a rare disorder of the connective tissue that makes up part of the penis.
It involves the growth of fibrous plaques in the soft tissue of the penis that can, in time, bend the penis in one direction or another. The result is a curved penis that is not always suited for sex. Many men suffering from Peyronie’s complain about pain during intercourse.
The exact cause of this condition is still unknown. Some experts are convinced that Peyronie’s disease is inherited and many say that it is caused by injury to the internal cavity of the penis.
The only known treatments of this condition are surgery, oral medication (vitamin E) or penis exercises. However, surgery is an invasive technique with irreversible results that is not always successful, while Vitamin E brings only a small improvement and not to all men.
The best choice for anybody suffering from this condition is to try penis exercises that can straighten the penis, just as they can make it longer.
Curvature of the penis can be caused by other factors such as strenuous masturbation, or injury to the penis, but the exercises used to correct Peyronie's disease can be equally effective in treating curvature caused by other factors.
