Bent Male Organ Treatment: Understanding and Coping with Peyronie’s Disease and How to Deal with it
A quarter of all men suffer from Peyronie’s Disease, a condition wherein the male organ has an extreme, usually, 30 percent or greater, bend. The cause of the disease is largely unknown but medical professionals suggest it can develop over time due to injuries to the member, both major and minor. Those traumas can cause bleeding which can lead to scar tissue formation and build up; however, this is not always the case. Over time, a man may notice a curve in his member becoming more dramatic, frequently leading to pain when urinating and getting and maintaining firmness. Having bent male organ can also lead to ED and anxiety. The good news is there are some treatments out there to help men with Peyronie’s Disease or men who just have an extreme bend in their member regain function and decrease discomfort.
Bent Male Organ Treatments
While there’s no cure for Peyronie’s Disease, it is treatable. Less severe cases can even go away on their own. In fact, many doctors employ a “wait and see” approach at first. If things aren’t remedying themselves, however, there are many options available.
1) Lifestyle Changes – Some adjustments to lifestyle have been shown to reduce the risk of ED related to Peyronie’s Disease. Reduction or abolishment of alcohol, non-prescription medications, and smoking help lessen the effects of the disease. Exercising daily for 30 or more minutes has also shown to help blood flow to the male organ.
2) Medication – Often times, these tablets are, gulp, injected into the member. The Food and Tablet Administration (FDA) has only approved one tablet to treat the condition so far and it’s called Xiaflex (fancy Chemistry name: clostridium histolyticum). This tablet is only recommended for men whose member have a bend of 30% or greater. This treatment is given over time as a series of injections which break down the collagen (scar tissue) causing the bend. Other medications that commonly prescribed are verapamil which is an oral medication used to treat blood pressure and interferon, an injection that works similarly to Xiaflex.
Note: For men using Xiaflex, there is a six-week physical therapy program that works in conjunction with the treatment. Each day men should:
– Stretch the male organ while not Firm. This should be done three times daily for 30 seconds per stretch.
– Straighten the male organ when experiencing an unprompted rise unrelated to sensual activity for 30 seconds once per day.
3) Non-Surgical Bent Male Organ Treatments – There are several non-surgical options men have to treat a bent member. A technique gaining popularity is Iontophoresis, which weak electrical current to deliver special medication through the skin. Other options are also being explored such as shock wave therapy to break up scar tissue, stretching the member through genital traction therapy, and various vacuum-like devices to also stretch the member.
4) Surgery – Only for the more severe cases, surgery is a bent male organ treatment for men who have been diagnosed with severe Peyronie’s Disease or male organ deformity for a year or more. Surgery can include genital implants, shortening the side opposite the bend, or lengthening the side of the bend. Lengthening runs a greater risk of causing ED, while shortening can create a straighter male organ but it will be shorter which is undesirable for some men.
5) Natural Remedies – Sadly, there aren’t many natural remedies that have been studied as bent male organ treatment options. However, there was one promising study from 2001 which found that l-carnitine was a safe and effective option for acute and early chronic Peyronie’s Disease, performing better than tamoxifen.
L-carnitine can be found in a male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin) and can be applied topically to the member. Nutrient creams like this deliver key amino acids and vitamins essential to good genital health and help with issues such as nerve damage, cellular activity, and overall male organ health and flexibility.
While research continues into what causes Peyronie’s Disease and how to remedy it, men who suffer from the condition should continue to educate themselves on their options and staying current on genital health topics in general. This will help both in and out of the bedroom.
