Many partners find a little curvature in the manhood attractive, but a severely bent male organ can be a problem. Some medications for hypertension may make a man more prone to such bending.

With the easy availability of adult video sites online, it’s likely that many men nowadays are in a position to see more tumescent members than they would have in the past – and that means they are more likely to be aware of the great variation in male organs. For example, guys now are more likely to realize that a member may have some curvature to it, even when their own does not. A little curvature can be perfectly normal, but a severely bent organ can be a cause for concern. It may indicate a male organ health issue, especially a condition known as Peyronie’s disease. And men with hypertension should be aware that in some cases, they may be more prone to a bent organ.
Again, it’s important to emphasize that some curvature is perfectly acceptable; indeed, some women have a preference for a member with a little curve to it. As long as it does not cause any pain or create obstacles to sensual function, there’s no need to worry about curvature.
But often the degree of curvature in a bent male organ can be so extreme that it does make coupling difficult. In addition, a man with Peyronie’s disease may experience pain when he has tumescence. Both of these issues are of concern.
So what is Peyronie’s disease? It’s a condition pretty much defined by the fact that a man has a severely bent male organ. It’s named after the doctor who first described it in medical literature. In most cases, Peyronie’s disease is associated with trauma to the manhood. It may be a large trauma, such as being hit in the member by a speeding baseball. Or it may be a small but repeated trauma, such as a history of rough handling.
When the member is traumatized, scar tissue (also called plaque) forms to repair the damage. With a large trauma, this may be plaque of significant size; with small but repeated trauma, the scar tissue is smaller but grows with repetition.
Unfortunately, the scar tissue is harder and less flexible than the tissue it replaces. Thus when the manhood grows during tumescence, the side of the member that has the scar tissue can’t stretch and expand as far as the other sides; therefore, it causes the manhood to bend in that direction. This inflexibility can cause pain, sometimes quite a bit of it.
Some men with hypertension – high blood pressure – may be more prone to Peyronie’s disease. That’s not because of the hypertension itself, however; it’s due to some medicines often used to fight hypertension. And it’s not all medicines – just those designated as beta blockers.
Exactly why beta blockers should cause a bent male organ is unclear. The mechanism is poorly understood at this time. And it’s also important to remember that not every guy who uses beta blockers is going to have Peyronie’s disease. However, if a man is using beta blockers and begins to notice an unwanted curvature in his manhood, he may want to speak to his doctor about possible alternative treatments. Keeping hypertension controlled is crucial for a man’s overall health.
A bent manhood, whether due to hypertension or other reasons, is but one of the many male organ heath issues a man needs to concentrate on. General member health can be better maintained by the daily use of a first rate male organ health crème(health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). A crème with vitamin C is especially recommended, as this vitamin is known for promoting greater tone and elasticity of skin, which the manhood definitely benefits from. Ideally the crème should also include vitamin A. In addition to making manhood skin look better through its anti-aging properties, vitamin A has antibacterial capabilities that discourage persistent member odor.
