Erectile Dysfunction
The exact cause of Peyronie’s disease, which is prevalent among males between 40 and 60 years old, still eludes experts. Although at the initial stages, the disease manifests as a curvature of the penis due to the presence of a hard area (fibrous plaques), the disease could progress from painful erection to having soft penis or the difficulty to achieve erection (erectile dysfunction). 

Although a person with erectile dysfunction could still achieve erection, due to the growth of the fibrous plaques, there are areas, like the end of the penis, which remain soft. This makes coitus difficult because there is no fullness of the penis at all. ED is often referred to as impotence. 

Unlike any other forms of ED, that which is caused by Peyronie’s disease cannot often be solved by medications such as sildenafil, tadalafil and vardenafil because achieving an erection is prevented by a permanent defect in the tissues inside the penis. 

The best way to treat this kind of ED is to treat Peyronie’s disease itself. Treatments include medication, therapy and surgery.
