Once you have Peyronie’s disease, it may get better with time or the issue may resolve on its own. While this doesn’t always happen, however, there are still treatment options that you can consider and discuss with your doctor. What are some of the treatments for Peyronie’s disease?
With Peyronie’s disease, the scar tissue in your erectile tissues is what’s causing the disease, whether it is from an injury or an unknown cause. Vitamins such as vitamin E and B complex vitamins have been shown to help reduce scar tissue and get your penis back to normal. Although these options have not been fully explored by researchers, these vitamins taken as prescribed by your doctor will not have any harmful side effects and may help reduce the effects of Peyronie’s disease.
If you recently began dealing with symptoms of Peyronie’s disease, your doctor may suggest giving the disease some time to see if the symptoms right themselves. Many men find that the symptoms of Peyronie’s disease decrease over time and that the bend or curve to the penis will eventually right itself too. While there’s no specific known cause of Peyronie’s and no one treatment known to work, it may be beneficial to wait and see if the problem fixes itself.
Peyronie’s disease can be painful for many men and create uncomfortable sexual experiences for them and their partner. Pain management, whether through physical therapy or medication, may be helpful in the treatment and management of Peyronie’s disease. Discuss pain management options with your doctor and consider different therapies and medications while you’re waiting to see if the Peyronie’s corrects itself.
Although not a great first option, if Peyronie’s disease persists over time or the symptoms worsen, it may be time to consider having surgery to correct the problem. Different surgical methods for Peyronie’s disease include grafting, which is removing some of the scar tissue and placing another piece of tissue to replace it, or penile implants, which replaces the spongy tissue in your corpora cavernosa so that you can achieve a more normal erection. These options could increase your chances for erectile dysfunction though, so consider other options before you consider surgery.
Other Natural Remedies
Besides vitamins, there are other amino acids you can try that may help with your Peyronie’s disease. Coenzyme Q-10, which helps repair and aid tissues in the body, may be able to help. Acetyl-L-Carnitine, an amino acid that occurs naturally in the body and helps build proteins, increases energy and may assist with muscle movement. Propionyl-L-Carnitine, another amino acid, can help increase circulation. All of these are naturally produced by the body and can be purchased in supplement form. Discuss natural options with your doctor.
There are several treatments available for Peyronie’s disease, and some of them may be used in combination with others. It’s important to know that if you have Peyronie’s disease, you are not alone and there are treatments available. Schedule an appointment with your doctor to discuss treatment options that may work best for you.
