Is Viagra Recommended for Men With Peyronie’s Disease?

Men with Peyronie’s Disease have a curved penis. In some men, the curve does not present any problems. Sometimes their partners even find their curved penis oddly attractive and exciting. However, Peyronie’s disease, or PD can also cause ED, or erectile dysfunction.

For these men with Peyronie’s and ED, they sometimes turn to Viagra, or similar oral ED medications for help. But, is taking Viagra a good idea for men with Peyronie’s? Let’s take a closer look.

Peyronie’s Disease and Viagra

Peyronie’s disease is characterized by fibrous scar tissue that forms beneath the surface of the penis. This scar tissue can often make it difficult or impossible to have a normal erection. The number of men with Peyronie’s who also have ED is quite high, with nearly 80% of men with PD, also reporting some degree of ED.

peyronies-diseaseInterestingly enough, doctors who treat men with PD, think that the increased public awareness of ED that drugs like Viagra created, also lead to more men seeking treatment for Peyronie’s. However, Viagra is not a preferred ED treatment for men with Peyronie’s and ED.

In fact, Pfizer, the manufacturer of Viagra warns, “Viagra should be used with caution in patients with anatomical deformation of the penis (such as angulation, cavernosal fibrosis or Peyronie’s disease).”

I treat men with Peyronie’s, and I treat men with ED. I can assure you that warning is valid. It can be painful and dangerous for men with PD to take Viagra. The problem is, the way Viagra works. Viagra increases blood flow to the penis, but it cannot do anything to lessen the scar tissue causing Peyronie’s. In a way, ED in men with Peyronie’s is a kind of defense mechanism. Not being able to get an erection, prevents you from further damaging the penis. Taking an Oral ED medication like Viagra, can force a man with Peyronie’s to get a painful erection. That forced erection can even create more scaring and make the Peyronie’s worse!

Alternative to Viagra for the Treatment for Peyronie’s

There is a treatment for Peyronie’s Disease that does not require taking potentially dangerous drugs, or having invasive surgery. It is a procedure that was originally developed as a drug-free treatment for any man with ED. As it turns out, it is also the ideal treatment for men with PD and ED.

It is called The Gaines Enhancement P-shot for Peyronie’s. Instead of using drugs or complicated surgeries, the P-shot for Peyronie’s uses your own blood!

It does this with Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP. PRP is created by separating stem cells, and healing proteins from the red and white blood cells normally found in a sample of your blood.

When painlessly injected into the penis, PRP increases blood flow, and restores your ability to get an erection. However, unlike Viagra, it not only increases blood flow, it stimulates the healing and regrowth of erectile tissue damaged by Peyronie’s Disease.

The P-shot for Peyronie’s has been shown to restore normal erectile function, and also straighten out the curve typical of the disease. This makes the Gaines Enhancement an effective treatment for Peyronie’s, even in men with PD who do not have erectile dysfunction.
