Dr. Levine answers: Any type of injury that occurs to the erect penis could activate Peyronie’s disease in the susceptible individual. This would include masturbation or penetrative sex. This would be most apt to occur if the penis had excessive pressures being placed on it such that it bent excessively in one direction or another, in which case a microtrauma within the tunica albuginea could occur, and therefore activate the abnormal wound healing process associated with Peyronie’s disease.

Previous I have had a penile curvature for 2 years that also has great pain. Is it a normal side effect of PD to have pain this long or is there another cause to consider?
Next Is there any association between Lexopro and the development of PD?
