A Startling Fact About Viagra and Men With Peyronie’s Disease

Men with Peyronie’s Disease are warned against using Viagra!

Men with Peyronie’s Disease have a curved penis. In some men, the curve does not present any problems. Sometimes their partners even find their curved penis oddly attractive and exciting. However, Peyronie’s disease, or PD, can also cause ED, or erectile dysfunction.

For these men with Peyronie’s and ED, they sometimes turn to Viagra, or similar oral ED medications for help. But, is taking Viagra a good idea for men with Peyronie’s? Let’s take a closer look.

Peyronie’s Disease and Viagra

ed and peyronie's diseasePeyronie’s disease is characterized by fibrous scar tissue that forms beneath the surface of the penis. This scar tissue can often make it difficult or impossible to have a normal erection. The number of men with Peyronie’s who also have ED is quite high, with nearly 80% of men with PD, also reporting some degree of ED.

Interestingly enough, doctors who treat men with PD, think that the increased public awareness of ED that drugs like Viagra created, also lead to more men seeking treatment for Peyronie’s. However, Viagra is not a preferred ED treatment for men with  Peyronie’s and ED.

In fact, Pfizer, the manufacturer of Viagra warns, “Viagra should be used with caution in patients with anatomical deformation of the penis (such as angulation, cavernosal fibrosis or Peyronie’s disease).”

I treat men with Peyronie’s, and I treat men with ED. I can assure you that warning is valid. It can be painful and dangerous for men with PD to take Viagra. The problem is, the way Viagra works. Viagra increases blood flow to the penis, but it cannot do anything to lessen the scar tissue causing Peyronie’s. In a way, ED in men with Peyronie’s is a kind of defense mechanism. Not being able to get an erection, prevents you from further damaging the penis.

Taking an Oral ED medication like Viagra, can force a man with Peyronie’s to get a painful erection. That forced erection can even create more scarring and make the Peyronie’s worse!

Alternative to Viagra for the Treatment for Peyronie’s

There is a treatment for Peyronie’s Disease that does not require taking potentially dangerous drugs, or having invasive surgery. It is a procedure that was originally developed as a drug-free treatment for any man with ED. As it turns out, it is also the ideal treatment for men with PD and ED.

It is called the GAINSWave™. The GAINSWave uses high-frequency acoustical waves to treat men with erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s Disease. The technology and the device is very similar to a technique known as “extracorporeal shock wave therapy,” or Electro Shock Wave Treatment (ESWT), that has been used successfully to treat men with ED and Peyronie’s Disease in Europe for decades.

Several research studies conducted in Europe have shown that shockwave therapy for Peyronie’s Disease successfully reduces the painful erections, and curved penis typical of the condition.

However the technique is relatively new here in the states. The GAINSWave™ is a non-invasive surgery-free, and drug free treatment for men with Peyronie’s disease.  In clinical trials, it has been shown to be as effective as Peyronie’s surgery such as penile grafts, implants, or suturing techniques which are far more painful and invasive. And, more effective than prescription drugs like Xiaflex.

But, don’t just take our word for it. Here is what Peter G., a 42 year-old man from Miami Beach, who was one of our first patients with Peyronie’s treated with the GAINSWave, had to say:

“If you told me months ago that I could fix my Peryonie’s disease without drugs or without surgery, I would have said you are nuts! But now, I know better! I am telling you, the GAINSWave works!”

Any man who is experiencing erectile difficulties or a diminished sex life due to the complications of Peyronie’s disease, is a good candidate for the GAINSWave for Peyronie’s. Men who are looking for an alternative treatment for Peyronie’s disease, or who may have heard of shockwave therapy for Peyronie’s disease, are particularly good candidates for the GAINSWave for Peyronie’s.
