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


It’s not easy to have Peyronie’s disease. Men with a curved penis feel a variety of emotions: anger, sadness, shame, and anxiety, just to name a few. Often, these feelings are intertwined. Let’s take a look at some of them.

Anger and Frustration

Like many illnesses, Peyronie’s disease can change a man’s life. It affects his manhood – that physical part of him that defines his masculinity. So it’s not surprising that some men with a curved penis may feel anger. They may wonder, “Why does this have to happen to me? Why can other men enjoy sex when I can’t?”

A bent penis can also lead to frustration – with the pain, with the potential inability to have intercourse, and with any relationship problems that may result. Some men get frustrated if their doctor isn’t responsive to their needs. Or, they get frustrated because they don’t know how to broach the subject with a doctor or partner.
