Conditions: Peyronies Disease

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

Isolation and Avoidance

Often, men with Peyronie’s disease and their partners separate emotionally from one another. They may not know how to talk about their situation and, therefore avoid it, making them feel more alone.

Dating and finding new sexual partners may be daunting for single men with Peyronie’s disease. Fear of seeming inadequate and embarrassment over their physical appearance can make men reluctant to start new relationships, causing them to isolate themselves even more.


Taken together, all of these emotions and feelings can escalate into depression, which may need to be addressed by a mental health professional. Research suggests that about half of men seek help from a therapist.
