Stages of Peyronie’s Disease
Urology specialists divide Peyronie’s disease into two stages, first the acute stage which is followed by the chronic
During both stages, the bent/curved penis may cause problems with sexual intercourse. At the same time you may also suffer from Erectile Dysfunction.
Peyronie’s disease usually develops over an average time of 6-months. During this time, it should be observed regularly so that the appropriate treatment to the stage in which it is in can be provided.
PD Stage One – The Acute Phase
In the acute stage plaque begins forming in the penis and gradually increases in size and develops curvature. The plaque will be softer and pliable during this stage. In the early months of the acute phase sufferers symptoms may not notice the development but it will nonetheless change..
Patients will usually experience some pain or discomfort, together with a bending of the penis and often a hardening or lump in one area. Most conventional treatments are not recommended at this stage, so if you are going through this you may have to grit your teeth and wait until the problem gets worse. However, our treatment with its ability to break down plaque, is an excellent solution to prevent the condition becoming more severe.
The treatment should also overcome the onset of erectile dysfunction and the inability to enjoy intercourse, because of a too severe deformity.
PD Stage Two – The Chronic Phase
During the Chronic stage the plaque is fully formed and hardened, and pain has normally disappeared. The blood vessels around the afflicted area are clogged up with minute plaques and the penis will bend on erection. In most cases the patient will suffer partial erectile dysfunction, a loss of girth and length and a softening at the end of the penis.
Historically, the only treatment at this stage has been life changing surgery. This might be for Penile Plication a shortening of the penis of up to 2 inches to straighten it, or the insertion of penile implants.
Penile implants rely on a manual pump to achieve an erection and many patients report a reduction on length as various prothesis are used.
