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.

Previous After a physical exam including a chemically induced erection, I’ve been told by my urologist that the next step is a Corpora cavernosagram to determine the cause of my peyronies. Is this a common procedure in diagnosing peyronies? Can sonography be used instead?
Next Are there any foods or drinks (coffee, tea, alcohol) that PD sufferers should eliminate? Are there any food or drinks known to help the condition?
