What is the Curve? The Emotional Impact of Peyronie’s Disease

Fear and Anxiety

Some men fear the unknown of Peyronie’s disease. Will they still be able to have erections and orgasms like they used to? Will sexual activity make the problem worse? Will the pain subside? Will their penis ever straighten? Will they ever get 100% better? Will their current partner, or future partners, find them unattractive or reject them? Will they be able to enjoy sex again?

Satisfying a partner is another great concern. Will the partner still be able to reach orgasm if intercourse isn’t possible? Will he or she be understanding and patient about the situation?
