What to Do About a Penis Curvature

How to overcome the inconvenience of a curved penis.

Any man who has a penis curvature has likely looked into ways to correct the problem and been confounded as to which methods would actually work. Since it’s estimated that some 4% of the male population has a bent penis, there is a whole online industry made up of different companies hawking products that they claim will fix a penis curvature permanently. The fact of the matter is that there are solutions for straightening a bent penis and in this article we’ll take a look at the most effective methods that are currently out there.

What Causes a Bent Penis?

curved-penisA curvature in the penis is most often caused by nonsymmetrical tissue in the shaft, which results in one side not being able to stretch out as fully during an erection, which is when most curves are their most pronounced. A bent penis, on the other hand, is normally more severe than a curvature and it will usually indicate more scarring of the penile tissue. This is referred to as Peyronie’s disease and will often result in erections that are painful as well as in difficulties having sex.

There are some behaviors that are thought to be a possible cause for a curved penis, including wearing restrictive clothing and always masturbating with the same hand, but doctors haven’t ruled out factors like genetics or repeated injury to the penis either.  A penis curvature can happen at any age, though it does seem to occur in younger men more often. Oddly, the phenomenon can occur with no evident cause and it can, just as strangely and less commonly, reverse itself with no treatment whatsoever.

Most men will land on one of the following options for correcting their penis curvature, which can vary widely by cost, comfort level and time needed for full recovery.

penis-surgerySurgical Options

There are surgeries available that will even out the amount of skin and tissue on both side of the penis, thereby correcting the curve. Most men do consider this to be an option of last resort however, due to the fact that it is costly, painful and likely to reduce the size of their penis in the end. Another factor to take into consideration is that if the root of the problem hasn’t been remedied or if the curvature of your penis is still increasing, most doctors will not perform the surgery, as the bend could reappear later on. The typical recovery time for these types of surgeries may range from a couple of weeks to a few months.

Surgical Options Are:

  • The most expensive way to go
  • Fairly effective for straightening severe bends
  • Considered a risky last resort by most physicians

High-quality traction devices can be found online at very reasonable prices and they have shown promising results when it comes to straightening out a bent penis with time. These gadgets are often referred to as penis stretchers since they also work to develop bigger, harder and longer-lasting erections. Because they are designed to work gradually over the course of many weeks, there’s no downtime when you use traction like there so often is for surgery. In fact, many of the men who opt to use a penis stretcher to straighten their penis give the tool good reviews for working well while causing little to no soreness. Depending on how severe the curve in your penis is, a traction device could take anywhere from several weeks to several months in order to fully correct the problem.

Traction Devices Can:

  • Straighten out penis curvature
  • Help to develop a larger erection at the same time
  • Encourage longer-lasting erections as well

Penis pumps are another popular option for those who are trying to straighten their dick. The most modern versions of these devices use water to create a vacuum seal around the shaft of the penis and the user can increase the pressure to their own comfort level simply by pumping the cylinder on their penis a few times.  Again, this method can take time and it must be used on a consistent basis in order to be effective, but it is also very cost-effective and requires no recovery time from users at all.
