Introduction To Peyronies Disease

Do I Have Peyronies Disease?

Curvature of the penis is actually quite common, many men actually have a natural curve to their penis, for some it has no effect on them whatsoever and live their lives quite happily with no ill effect, for others the curve can cause them embarrassment and in severe cases, possible problems with intimacy and sexual contact.

Natural curvature can occur for many reasons, some cases could be genetic or the result of a childhood injury.

Treating Regular or Natural Penile Curvature

Having A Curved Or Bent Penis Does Not Automatically Mean That You Have Peyronies Disease 

However….If your penis has developed a lump or it has started to bend to one side, especially as it become erect, here is every chance that you could have the condition known as Peyronies disease.

If you do have the condition; your body has replaced normal elastic tissue in your penis with harder, inflexible scar tissue that is known as a plaque.


These scar tissues are what normally appear to replace injured tissue, but in the case of Peyronies, it appears in healthy skin. It can cause deformity of the penis, and one informative Peyronies forum likens it to putting some ducktape onto a balloon and then blowing it up –as the balloon inflates, it does so irregularly and ends up misshapen.

What Has Caused My Peyronies Disease

There is no definitive answer to this question, the general thought is that some people are more genetically disposed to the problem, it can often be triggered by trauma or injury to the penis – something minor, even unnoticeable could trigger the condition – A blow to the penis playing football, even twisting or straining the penis while having intercourse – especially when the woman is on top could be the trigger.

How Can I Cure Peyronies Disease

There is no definitive cure for Peyronies disease, there are however treatments that can stabilise and reverse the problem.Plaque-removal-surgerybefore

It’s recommended that these are tried in order, as each option is increasingly more aggressive.

When considering treatments for Peyronies, it pays to consider the following:

  • The Chance Of  It Working
  • Any Health Risks
  • The Cost
  • Just How Invasive Is The Treatment

Not every treatment will work for all people, and the rate of response to treatments will vary. Very few cases (around 5%) actually disappear on their own, and a slightly larger amount of cases do improve without treatment. Unfortunately, the majority of cases will remain or in sometimes get worse without treatment.

Recommended Treatment Plan For Peyronies Disease

What Should I Do If  Think I Have Peyronies Disease

The first port of call should be your doctor, he/she will then probably refer you to a specialist Urologist – ask to be seen by one that specialises in Peyronies.

The first treatment you can try is an oral supplement, there are some over the counter products that have demonstrated good results and are an ideal first method because they are less invasive and have virtually no risks of any side effects.

These include:

  1. Coenzyme Q10 – Between 200 and 400mg per day split into 3 doses
  2. L-Arginine  – Between 1.5 and 3g per day –split into 2 or 3 doses
  3. Acetyl L-Carnitine  Between 1.5 – 3g per day split into 2 doses
  4. Those aged over 40 years old could benefit from Ubiquinol, but this can be expensive to buy

Try to get good amounts of sleep, and importantly DO NOT SMOKE.

Some experts suggest trying an anti inflammation diet but this still needs further research.

What Will Happen At The Doctors

Katelaris_1_Oct_PeyroniesBe relaxed and try not to be shy, as most Urologists deal with Peyronies on a regular basis.- They have seen it all before..

Take a photograph of your erect penis with you, showing clearly the lumps or curvature, as this will greatly assist your doctor in assessing and preparing a treatment plan.

Prepare questions in advance; take your partner with you if you wish, so that they can ask their own questions. Make sure you get all the answers to any concerns before you leave.

Your Doctor will probably do the following at your consulation:

  • Carry out a ‘hands on’ visual examination
  • Request an ultrasound scan to determine the levels of both plaques and bloodflow
  • They could prescribe a drug called Pentox, or possible suggest over the counter supplements such as L-arginine (sometimes they will suggest both, this is called a PAV Cocktail and can also include Viagra
  • They will discuss the various forms of treatment, that will no doubt include vacuum pumps, traction devices, injections and as a last resort surgery.

Surgery is usually only usually carried out in extreme cases of Peyronies, ie when intercourse is difficult and/or painful and other treatment methods have been ineffective.

After Your Diagnosis

The first thing that you have to remember that treating peyronies disease is a gradual process. Your doctor probably prescribe you Pentox or something similar and if he hasn’t mentioned it, go buy some of the supplements mentioned above as these can provide some good results.

You will need to consider the effects on your life in general – for instance – can you still get an erection? Are you able to have fulfilling sexual intercourse.

Consider buying your self a vacuum pump or traction device as these have been found to be very effective over time. Costs will vary, but get the best that you can afford, many sufferers of Peyronies actually have both.

If you feel that the problem is causing you psychological issues, seek therapy or councelling; treating Peyronies can feel like a battle, but if you can overcome the psychological impact, you are halfway there..

Ultimate Treatment Plan For Peyronies Disease

Bathmate Hydromax Penis Pump

Bathmate Hydromax – How To Treat Penile Curvature At Home

Penile curvature (AKA Peyronies Disease) is a problem that effects millions of men globally. 

For some men the problem is mild and does not impact on their lives or their ability to have sex, but for some the bend or curve is so pronounced that it causes them intense embarrassment and also makes it virtually impossible to have sex, if they do, its often painful.

Treatments For Peyronies

Treatment is possible in many cases, and the methods used can vary considerably. When curvature is mild, there are some drugs that can be taken in pill form or injected into the penis to help break down the hard tissue that causes the problem. 

When the curvature is more severe, sometimes the only option is surgery – the nesbit procedure being one of the most commonly carried out.

For the majority of men with curvature, the good news is that there is another way of gradually reducing the problem, and this can be done at home, without the need for injections, pills or surgery.

The answer to your penile curvature could be a penis vacuum pump – and the one with the best track record for treating curvature is made by Bathmate – the world best selling range of penis pumps.

The most popular model in their range is the Bathmate Hydromax – it’s been sold in its hundreds of thousands globally and is without any doubt the market leading product of its kind.

About The Bathmate Range

The Bathmate penis pump was designed some 15 years ago, the first model was originally called the Hercules, its main aim was to help men achieve and sustain powerful erections, boosting erect size and performance. With regular use it also helped to generate permanent increases in penile length and girth.

It was discovered that alongside the erection enhancing, size boosting benefits, it also had a positive effect on treating mild to medium cases of penile curvature.

Now the Bathmate range comprises 3 models with over 11 sizes alongside a range of useful accessories

How Does The Bathmate Work?

All Bathmate penis pumps work in the same way. Designed to be used in the bath or shower, the device is filled with warm water, and placed over the penis. 

The device is then pumped to expel any residual air and some of the water within the device to generate a vacuum pressure inside the device.

This pressure of the vacuum helps to draw blood into the penis, causing the penis to become erect.

The blood flow being forced into the penis under the pressure of the vacuum is considerably more than usual, this causes the penis to swell, becoming visibly larger and harder than normal when erect. 

The powerful erection is then ready for the man to have enjoyable and often longer lasting sex. When the erection subsides, the penis will initially return to its original size.

With regular daily use of around 15 minutes per day, the pressure inside the penis caused by the increased blood flow causes something miraculous to happen with the penis – a process of cellular duplication. 

This is exactly the same as what happens when doctors put an injured or stunted limb under traction. 

Under the pressure within, the tissue cells stretch and tear as a result of the stretching effect. Then the body goes into repair mode and replaces the torn cells with new tissue – 

This gradually causes the actual mass of the penis to increase, resulting in permanent growth. It’s exactly the same method that bodybuilders use to build their muscle size. 

Exercising with weights causes the tissue cells in the muscles to tear, they are then naturally repaired with more and more tissue, making the muscles larger in sizes.

Sufferers of penile curvature can experience the same effect, the stretching pressure helps to break down the hardened tissue cells ( also called plaques) that cause the penis to bend. These are then replaced by the body with new tissue cells and eventually the penis will become straighter.

Penis pumps are thought to be the most effective non invasive method of reducing mild to medium cases of penile curvature.

The Bathmate Hydromax

The Hydromax is the mid range model in the Bathmate series. It offers improvements on the entry level model (called the hydro). 

It has added comfort rings at the base of the bellows (where it is placed up against the groin) this makes using the device more comfortable  while pumping. 

It also has a moveable chamber that rotates on the bellows while under use, allowing the user to read the size gauge, monitoring the results as he uses the device.

The main improvement on the Hydro is the fact that the bellows pump is made from medical grade silicone and it provides up to 35% more vacuum pressure than the Hydro.

Choosing Your Device

There are 5 models in the Hydromax Series, and choosing the correct one is paramount for best results. You need to buy the right device for your penis size. 

Its crucial t measure your penis accurately to ensure that you get the right device.

Allowing room to grow is essential, but having a device that is too small or too big for you is also wrong. 

  • If your penis is between 2 and 3” when erect you should choose the Hydromax3
  • For the with penises that measure up to 5” then go for the Hydromax5
  • If you have a penis that is between 5 and 7” when erect the the Hydromax7 is the device to choose.
  • For those of you who already have a penis measuring 9” when erect then the Hydromax9 is the one for you.
  • For those men who have a thicker than normal girth (up to 6.5”) there is a “wideboy” version of the hydromax 7.
