The Top 5 Best Peyronie’s Treatments For You To Try
If you suffer from Peyronie’s Disease not only do you endure the pain that erections can bring; you also need to deal with the anxiety this can produce, the effect it has on your sex life and the possibility of Erectile Dysfunction as all of these issues stack up. Peyronie’s is unpleasant and painful, and that’s why today we are taking a closer look at the best treatments for Peyronie’s Disease that you can try to fix the issue.
Is It Possible to ‘Fix’ Peyronie’s Disease?
Ultimately yes, it can be fixed by a surgical operation in the absolute worst case scenario. The Mayo Clinic suggests that your physician is highly unlikely to resort to surgery unless the pain becomes excruciating, or until you have had the condition for more than a year. Unfortunately you will also have to wait until the bending has stabilized for a six month period.
All this means that you are going to be in pain for at least a year and a half before you can effectively fix Peyronie’s Disease for good… and even after surgery there may still be some issue. Don’t panic though! There are other treatments for peyronies that can help ease the pain and may be a solution to your problem altogether, preventing the need for surgery and getting you back to your fit self.
The Top 5 Best Treatments for Peyronie’s Disease
Treatment Option Number 5: Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory/Oral Medications
Your physician might offer you non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication that is usually prescribed in oral form. These are a pain management treatment only, and there is little to no evidence to support that they provide any benefit to the root cause itself. In terms of being an effective Peyronies treatment these drugs are only good for treating the pain the disease can cause.
Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory medications have much the same effect on Peyronie’s Disease as taking an aspirin to treat Hay-fever. It eases a few symptoms but doesn’t do much else. We recommend you try something better and resort to this if you are in pain. That being said there are a number of studies on different oral medications that your physician may prescribe and their actual effectiveness. You can view one such study here, courtesy of the National Library of Medicine.
Treatment Option Number 4: Topical Treatments
Topical treatments include gels, creams and salves that may be applied to the affected area, usually at repeated intervals throughout the day. The main medications prescribed for this are Verapamil HCI, Trifluoperazine and a topical version of Magnesium Sulfate. Pilot studies indicate that the results from these topical treatments can help to minimize pain and curvature over time. The down side? These topical treatments can be expensive, with the correct combinations still being researched today. Additionally these treatments take around a year to work…

Treatment Option Number 3: Penile Injections
Yes – you read that right. Although it is a scary prospect injections of certain drugs might be prescribed by your Doctor, depending on the severity of your situation. Normally when you go for these injections the skin will be numbed beforehand to help with the pain – but it still doesn’t bear thinking about. That being said the injections allow for more localized treatment of the problem.
There are three drugs that are most commonly injected. The first is Verapamil and is usually used to treat high blood pressure. There isn’t a lot of supporting evidence to suggest that it works. The second is Interferon; a protein you may have heard of before as it is often used in other treatments. Interferon is produced naturally in the body and can help to break down scar tissue. There is some evidence to back this one up, according to Urology Health.
The most recent injection to be developed is based on a substance called Collagenase, a flesh eating enzyme. If your penis curves more than thirty degrees you should qualify for this Peyronie’s treatment. This treatment is expensive. You will need multiple shots over a period of time and you will be required to abstain from sex for weeks after each injection.
If you can’t stand needles we don’t blame you!
Treatment Option Number 2: Vacuum Therapy
Vacuum Therapy (or Vacuum Pump Therapy) is a treatment for Peyronies that involves the use of a mechanical vacuum to straighten the curvature of the penis over time. The good news, it works! Not only that but it is also available and safe for any stage of the disease. One study even suggests that it may reduce the number of people who need to have surgery.
Traditionally the Vacuum pump has been used to aid in the treatment of ED, and new research seems to show a positive effect on Peyronie’s Disease. It seems a relatively painless way to get to the root of the problem, and for this we have awarded Vacuum Pump Therapy second place on our list of the best treatments for Peyronies.
Treatment Option Number 1: Acoustic Wave Therapy
If you are looking for a Peyronie’s Disease help then acoustic wave therapy may be the solution you have been hoping for. It has shown to be an effective treatment for Peyronies, (see this study); AWT uses high frequency, low intensity sound waves to break apart the scar tissue that causes the problem. When you use this technology it is pain free, it is non surgical, no medications are needed and it starts working from the very first treatment.
When we say it starts working almost immediately we mean men from all over the Chicago area walk out of our Des Plaines clinic and notice a marked improvement. Check out this study
