Do you have a curve to your penis?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes it appeared recently, in the begining it was nt curved, but having pain mostly during erections, but now in normal condition i feel some thing is wrong there, although I have normal intercourse but usually the rate is being decreased may be because of diabetic medications, my BP is usually normal. Please check what I should do in order to fix this problem, In case you need more info, please ask, Thanks,

Did you injure your oenis during sexual in the past?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

My answer to your question is YES, when this problem started I tried to insert in her and I found she is dry and it happened on several occasion thinking that she will be naturally lubricated I didn't use any artificial lubrications,I feel that you are very close to the correct diagnosis by your question ( answer ), waiting for your final verdict. Thanks

The condition you have is likely Peyronie's disease which is due to scar tissue formation on the penis. This is due to trauma to the penis that you had. Unfortunately, there's not much they can be done to regain the length. However, the curvature can be treated with medications such as trental to try to help dissolve the scar tissue. If the medications don't work and your curvature is so bad that it prevents you from having intercourse, then you may need surgery to straighten the penis out assuming that you can get an erection. The pain you have is from the scarring and can take up to a year to stop. You need to see a urologist to discuss all your treatment options for this disease. Hope this helps and please let me know if you have questions.

Dear Doctor I am very much convinced with your diagnosis and I think that I need to consult the doctor locally an specialist, the hospital gave me an appointment for 31 Dec. I have to go through it, but my curvature is not so much and I dont have any problem in the bed except pain after it is over. For how long I should continue the Vitamin E 1000 and what precaution I should take.

Thanks.

You can take the vitamin E for 6-12 months to see if this helps. You just have to be very careful to not bend or injure your penis during sex

Dr. I am so much convinced with the way you diagnosed without examination i became curious to ask you more about it, I am also facing sexual dysfunction and to get an erection I need supporters like cialis ( dr prescribed ) but I havnt used it instead I am using herbal medicines, Is there any permanent solution for this problem.

Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 2 years ago.
Unfortunately, there is no permanent solution. The solution is to benon the medications like cialis to improve the blood flow to the penis to improve your erections.
