Dr. Levine answers: A 90-degree bend typically will result in significant compromise the ability to perform penetrative sex. It is also possible that it will put significant pressure within the vagina causing female discomfort. The development of yeast infections, I would not think is directly due to the Peyronie’s disease, but more likely due to sexual activity itself. Your wife should certainly be evaluated by her gynecologist.
