Erectile dysfunction treatments for a bent penis caused by Peyronies Disease (PD) should start with this one:
Straighten Out Your Penis.
When a man has PD, and develops erectile dysfunction simultaneously, straighten is, most often, the only erectile dysfunction treatment needed.
A lot of men with a bent penis, and, Peyronies disease, are shocked by our statement on erectile dysfunction treatments when they come to our website.
They so often think they will need a pill, or a patch, a shot,... They don’t realize they probably need none of these things.
We are so over “educated” (actually: misinformed) by advertising that we always need a pill, or, a shot, or testosterone supplements, or even some herbal treatments for erectile dysfunction.
Do you know why?
It’s not necessarily because they are the best erectile dysfunction treatments. Or, the most economical. Or, the “safest”. Or, even the right one for you. Those ads want to sell products. That's all.
There’s nothing wrong with that either, if they have something of value for you.
But, with ED caused by a bent penis, the best erectile dysfunction treatment is usually to get straight again. That’s it. That may be all you need to do.
This is the most important question here.
Now, we are not going to tell you that many of these products and treatments don’t work. Some work very well.
Hey, the little blue pill, and it’s similar friends, work for tens of thousands of men. They may even help you get a harder erection if you have Peyronies disease.
But, these little babies come with some very serious possible side effects that include: Blindness and Death. Yes. Blindness and death. The warning is packed inside on the information sheet.
Of course the majority of men who use them have very pleasant results.
But, do you want to risk being one of the unfortunate men? Especially if you don’t need to use them?
This is the most important point to learn:
A bent penis can be the entire cause
The entire cause.
The most common reaction to erectile dysfunction, that men with a bent penis have when the impotence first becomes evident, is this: “What’s happening to my body? First my cock bends horribly. Now, I have erectile dysfunction. What’s wrong with me? What’s going to happen next? I feel like I’m falling apart.”
Sound familiar? It’s a very normal and natural reaction when we don’t really know what is happening. Or, why it’s happening.
The main thing most of us usually don’t understand in this situation is this:
Peyronies is NOT a “disease”. There is NOTHING wrong with you (as far as the bending and ED that is causes are concerned).
How could that be?
Well, if you’ve been reading our website, you know that all that bending is, is a little hardened scar tissue inside your shaft. It makes your cock bend. Sometime horribly.
This scar is no more a disease than the scar on your hand. Or, your foot. Or, your face. Are those scars a “disease”? Of course not. And, neither is this.
There are a number of reasons why a bent penis can cause ED all by itself. These reasons include:
No, if it is psychological this doesn’t mean you are a “mental case”. It simply means you get performance anxiety. We have all experienced this with or without a bent penis. Right?
And/or, you feel so humiliated by the bend that you actually become too embarrassed to get an erection. This is real. AND, it is common. If this is your situation, you’re not alone.
Psychological impotence is very real. And, it can be just as devastating and debilitating as ED caused by physical problems.
Here’s what you’ll find (from the International Society for Sexual Medicine) on the causes of ED when a bent penis is involved:
“ • The plaques may weaken the smooth muscle tissue in the penis, making it more difficult for an erection to occur.
• The plaques may impair blood flow into the penis. As a result, there isn’t enough blood for a firm erection.
• The plaques may cause blood to leave the penis too quickly, making the man lose the erection.
Men with Peyronie’s disease often feel depressed about their situation and anxious about sexual activity. These psychological issues can lead to erection problems.”
reference: “How Might Peyronie’s Disease Cause Erectile Dysfunction?”
All of this means just one thing:
Straighten out the penis, and all those erectile dysfunction treatments that you may now be contemplating, will become unnecessary 99.9% of the time.
Really. That’s all there is to it for most cases of erectile dysfunction caused by a bent penis.
You knew there had to be a catch to this. Right?
Well, there is.
There are only three medically recommended treatments for penis straightening that have proven to work reliably. These are:
Let’s take a look at each of these:
If you straighten your erection with a surgery, everything might turn out just great.
Surgery is the quickest straightening process.
The problem with a penile surgery is it comes with many possible serious side effects. These include, but are not limited to:
reference: Mayo Clinic, https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/peyronies-disease/symptoms-causes/syc-20353468
“Interestingly, over 65% of patients were unhappy with the outcomes of the Peyronie's surgery at 5-year follow-up. Penile length loss and worsening of erectile dysfunction was the most common reason for dissatisfaction.”
reference: Dr. Nelson Bennett, “Five-year follow-up of Peyronie's graft surgery: outcomes and patient satisfaction.”
Aren’t all these thing half the problem we are trying to get rid of right now?
Injections are not as invasive as the surgeries are.
There are a number of injectables being used, but, the only FDA approved injection treatments for Peyronies disease is a product called Xiaflex®.
Xiaflex® is a trade name for a form of the enzyme collagenase. Specifically: collagenase clostridium histolyticum.
Xiaflex® treatments, unfortunately, have some serious possible side effects of their own:
“XIAFLEX® can cause serious side effects, including:
Penile fracture (corporal rupture) or other serious injury to the penis. Receiving an injection of XIAFLEX® may cause damage to the tubes in your penis called the corpora. After treatment with XIAFLEX®, one of these tubes may break during an erection. This is called a corporal rupture or penile fracture. This could require surgery to fix the damaged area. Damage to your penis might not get better after a corporal rupture.
After treatment with XIAFLEX®, blood vessels in your penis may also break, causing blood to collect under the skin (hematoma). This could require a procedure to drain the blood from under the skin”

Penis Traction Therapy (PTT):
Penis traction therapy (PTT) is the Safest and Most Effective medically endorsed and recommend method there is.
It is medically endorsed and recommended in 29 countries worldwide.
Another very nice feature of PTT is the cost.
What makes the most sense to try first?
If you opt for a surgery, there is a considerable chance you will need a sexual stimulant afterward or later on to achieve a solid erection.
The most common of these stimulants used are phosphodiesterase 5 inhibitors. You are probably familiar with the most famous of these: Viagra. “The little blue pill”.
After Penis Traction Therapy:
Your erections should functions normally again without any stimulants.
Yes. There are two things:
First: PTT treatments take a bit of time. With PTT you are stretching tissue and actually growing new cells.
This straightening process takes time. Usually 6 - 9 months.
Second: Unfortunately, PTT is so effective that a man can actually make his shaft measurably bigger.
Why is that unfortunate?
Because there are a lot of young men who want a bigger cock. So, there are quite a few “knock off” manufacturers that copy the quality devices with poorly made devices of their own that they sell very inexpensively.
So that this article doesn’t get too long, we review the devices in detail for you here.
That’s a good question. And, it depends on what caused the erectile dysfunction.
If ED was caused by the bent penis, straightening (with natural stretching treatments like PTT) will usually make the ED disappear “like magic”.
When you remove the cause of the problem (severe bending) you will almost always remove the effect (erectile dysfunction).
Remember: Straightening with a surgery or injections may cause a different form of ED that straightening can not reverse.
Unfortunately, sometimes yes.
There are extreme cases and conditions such as an hourglass shaped penis that can only be corrected with surgery.
This amounts to less than 0.1% of cases. Less than 1 in 1,000.
Of all the erectile dysfunction treatments for a bent penis, we recommend.... nothing.
Because, as you have learned:
Once the erections are sufficiently straightened,
the ED usually disappears.
If the ED is from another source such as diabetes, circulatory problems, etc... straightening will probably not be the answer. Other erectile dysfunction treatments will be required.
Remember: If your erectile dysfunction came about right after the bending became noticeable, the bend could be the entire cause of the ED.
In this case, the only erectile dysfunction treatment necessary is usually very simple: Straighten out the penis. Naturally. Without surgery, injections, or drugs.
In any event, doesn’t it make sense to try straightening with traction therapy first? Before trying any erectile dysfunction treatments that may be unnecessary, and, have unwanted side effects?
With penis traction therapy most men wind up very pleasantly surprised.
