Background on Peyronie’sIf your husband/partner does not want to have sex – and ED (erectile dysfunction) is not the problem – what could it be? While this is a difficult conversation for couples to have, it is important because there may be another medical problem, one that is less known but often treatable: Peyronie’s disease.
Peyronie's disease is a condition that results in a curved erection that may be painful. The cause of Peyronie's is not clear, but doctors believe that in some men, injury to the penis (possibly during sex) results in abnormal scarring. The scar tissue, known as Peyronie's plaque, is not as stretchy as the rest of the penis.
