Penile curvature


Penises come in all different shapes and sizes! It is considered normal to have a curve in the penis that is 0-20 degrees, however in some cases this can become problematic, such as:

  • Problems with sexual intercourse

  • Body image


Some people are born with penile curvature (this is called congenital). Penile curvature can also be caused as a result of Peyronie’s disease (acquired), this means that it comes later in life and can be related to some form of trauma, diabetes or hypertension.


Penile curvature can have effects on a male’s sex life and also fertility.


Treatments include:

  • Vacuum pump

  • Injections

  • Shockwave therapy

  • Surgery
