Dr. Levine answers: It is unlikely that the condom itself could trigger PD, but if during sexual activity there was trauma to the penis this is the more likely cause. Hourglass deformity is not typically an early onset type of deformity associated with Peyronie’s disease. Usually there would be a small localized indentation which may progress to an hourglass deformity over time. In general, application of constriction bands, rubber bands, cock rings, are unlikely to activate the Peyronie’s process by themselves particularly in the flaccid state.

Previous As a spouse of a PD patient, what is the best way to approach the “inadequate” mental state my husband experiences — ignore, encourage, be candid, recommend medical treatment?
Next Can PD explain why I have always had very little sensations in the skin of the penis? I have been going to different doctors for years about it, and now a urologist told me it might be related to PD. Is this a known phenomenon?
