Help with Peyronie’s Disease

Help with Peyronie's DiseaseHelp with Peyronie’s Disease

Help with Peyronie’s disease is often something a man finds it hard to ask for. If you are man living with Peyronie’s disease, you already know it can have a significant and life-altering impact on your life and the life of your partner. Having Peyronie’s disease affects each man differently, impacting how he feels about himself, his masculinity, and his sexual relationships. Men who have Peyronie’s disease need to know they are not alone – after all, up to 9% of the male population may have this condition – and that there are ways to cope with Peyronie’s disease and their feelings about it.

Ways to Get Help with Peyronie’s Disease

  • Get educated. When you learn as much as you can about Peyronie’s disease, the condition, its symptoms, and how you feel about it, you will also gain a sense of control. Research your treatment options, ask questions of your urologist and other experts, and keep up with the latest research on Peyronie’s disease.
  • Talk to your partner or a trusted friend about help with Peyronie’s disease. It’s important to share your fears, frustrations, and other feelings about having Peyronie’s disease and its impact on your life with someone you trust. Having an understanding individual to talk to can better help you cope with the disease.
  • Connect with other men who have Peyronie’s disease to get help with Peyronie’s disease. Having Peyronie’s disease can be embarrassing and difficult for men to discuss openly, but the internet has made it possible for men to communicate with other men who have Peyronie’s disease in the privacy of their own homes. Online support groups, forums, and chat rooms can allow you to learn how other men deal with the condition and to ask questions without embarrassment.
  • Think about intimacy in a different way. If sexual intercourse has become difficult or impossible, then it’s time for you and your partner to redefine what sexual intimacy means to you. Find new ways to be intimate with each other and to maintain your confidence in your sexuality and masculinity.
  • Seek professional help. A therapist or counselor who is familiar with the sexual, relationship, and emotional issues surrounding Peyronie’s disease can be most helpful for both you and your partner.
