Effects of Peyronies Disease on Sexual Functioning

The sexual problems that result from Peyronies Disease, can disrupt a couple’s physical and emotional relationship. For men regardless of their relationship status, any sexual expectation to perform sexually, when they have a condition which effects the penis, has a high potential for developing problems around self-esteem, self-confidence and anxiety which can further escalate problems with sexual performance.

Most urologists would agree that having consistent, healthy erections is key to maintaining peak sexual performance. However, due to the painful nature of erections for many Peyronie’s disease suffers, they may find sex unenjoyable or impossible.
