A significantly bent male organ can be a problem for a man on a number of levels. Although some curvature is normal, there may be causes for severe bending, including a man’s specific medication use.
Bent Male Organ Avoidance: The Medication Connection
By John Dugan
Although the popular image of the male organ is that of a ramrod straight mass of tissue, in truth, many men have a member that is not perfectly straight. A bent male organ, or a male organ with some degree of curvature, is not at all uncommon, and by itself is not a member health concern. However, in some cases the curvature of the manhood can be significant and may indeed become problematic. There can be several causes for such a situation, and one of them may be related to the medication a man may be taking for other conditions.
Any man who hasn’t already done so should take a moment to look at his member carefully in a mirror, both when soft and when firm. In many cases, a man will notice that the instrument curves somewhat to the right or the left. In other men, it may have a gentle upward curve or, more rarely, may bend downward a bit. When the degree of curvature is slight, this is normal. When it is significant, especially to a degree that it causes pain or makes it uncomfortable to engage in sensual activity, then a man is typically considered to be suffering from Peyronie’s disease.
As with so many things affecting the manhood, there is a lot that still needs to be learned about Peyronie’s disease, including a more thorough understanding of its causes. There seems to be some genetic component, meaning that if a man saw his father in the locker room and wondered why his member had that strange bend – then that man may also have curvature in his future.
It’s also common for a severely bent male organ to occur as a result of trauma, either short term or long term. In the former category, a sharp blow to the member might bring about the bending. In the latter, rough handling (either with a partner or alone) can over time create many small layers of scar tissue which build up and create the curvature.
But in some cases, a man may look down to find his manhood has bent due to tablets he is taking to address some other health challenges.
What are some medications that may contribute to the development of a bent male organ?
Interferon.Interferons are naturally-occurring proteins which can be synthesized and utilized in treatment for many conditions. They are frequently used in treating hepatitis C, Kaposi’s sarcoma, multiple sclerosis and genital warts.
Beta blockers. One of the more commonly used medications, beta blockers are very popular in treating in high blood pressure and/or cardiac issues.
Anti-seizure medications. People with seizures often require special medications to manage and control them. It is believed that at least some of these medications may contribute to Peyronie’s disease in some men.
It’s important to note that the evidence linking medications and curvature is not fully understood and that, more importantly, just because some of the medications may have a link does not mean that they will cause a bent male organ in every man that uses them. If a man does believe his medication is affecting him in this way, he should discuss his concerns with his doctor to determine if an alternative medication might be an option.
Medications that contribute to a bent male organ can become an issue, but so can simply maintaining a proper level of general male organ health. To that end, readers are encouraged to take advantage of a top-notch member health crème(health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) daily. One drawback often associated with a bent male organ, especially when scar tissue buildup is involved, is a loss of feeling. A crème with neuroprotective acetyl L-carnitine can provide a buffer against that development. Also important: that the crème contain pantothenic acid (commonly called vitamin B5). Pantothenic acid is known as a protector of sensitive skin, such as that which covers the manhood.
