Low Testosterone and Peyronie’s Disease

Mar 18, 2015

Low Testosterone and Peyronie’s DiseaseTestosterone levels don’t appear to affect the severity of Peyronie’s disease, according to researchers from the University of North Carolina.

When a man has Peyronie’s disease, his penis develops a distinct curve that can interfere with sexual intercourse. The bend is caused by areas of hardened scar tissue called plaques, which make the penis less flexible. Peyronie’s disease can be painful and it prevents some men from having intercourse at all.

The exact cause of Peyronie’s disease isn’t known, but many experts believe that the plaques result from an injury that doesn’t heal properly.

Men with Peyronie’s disease may also have problems getting erections, a condition called erectile dysfunction (ED).
