Conditions: Peyronies Disease

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

Emotional Impact on Partners

It’s also important to understand the emotional impact of Peyronie’s disease on partners. They, too, may miss the sexual relationship that once was, feel nervous about starting intimacy, or become distressed if the relationship suffers. Many partners want to talk about the situation, but don’t understand what Peyronie’s disease really is or don’t know how to start such a delicate conversation.

Female partners in particular may not understand the “loss of manhood.” Many women aren’t as concerned about penetration and are sexually satisfied in ways other than intercourse. So, they may not make the connection between a man’s penis, his masculinity, and what that means for him.
