Bent Penis

If you've found your way here, possibly by searching for the term bent penis, it's likely that you have concerns about the shape of your penis and wish to see what treatment options are available. In short, if you have a bent penis the condition is either caused by congenital curvature or peyronie's disease.

With congenital curvature the penis has always been curved and has not changed in shape in recent months or years. Congenital literally means 'existing at birth'. Often the curvature is slight and of no consequence, but sometimes it is more pronounced creating a feeling of insecurity and in more severe cases making sexual intercourse difficult.

Peyronie's disease, an inflammatory condition, differs in that it develops over time and as such it can be very noticable and psychologically troubling. Sometimes peyronie's disease is caused by a sexual injury, but often there is no noticable event. PD can be painful, but isn't always, and curvature and nodules can develop suddenly or over a period of time. The curvature is caused by plaque (scarring) which reduces elasticity within the penis. It can also be widespread rather than localised resulting in a shortening of the penis rather than noticable 'bent penis' appearance.

For peyronie's disease studies indiciate that pentoxifylline is a somewat useful oral treatments. There are also various studies demonstrating that traction devices can be used to significantly reduce curvature. As can ved therapy. There are surgical options too, though it certainly makes sense to try conservative options first.

For congenital curvature I would suggest traction as way of stretching the short side of the penis. Traction devices have been shown to be able to stretch tissue within the penis, increasing length in the process. Where there is curvature, the curve exists due to that part of the penis being shorter. As such this is the tissue that would be stretched by such a device [Product Page].
