Men tend to be very proud of their members, and why not? A good looking manhood, especially when the result of careful attention to proper male organ care, deserves a little applause. Thatâ€™s why some men with a bent male organ may feel a little self-conscious. It can seem unfair when a manâ€™s bent male organ causes him anxiety or embarrassment. Preventing an extreme curvature from occurring can help a man avoid these feelings, so itâ€™s important to know about one possible cause of an excessively bent male organ: medications. Not all medications, of course â€“ but some fairly common ones can be at fault.
Itâ€™s important to note, of course, that thereâ€™s nothing wrong with a little curvature to the manhood. Millions of members have some curving, and millions of women find a little curve to be their cup of tea. But when the curvature is so extreme as to cause pain and/or difficulty in performing sensually, then a bent male organ does become a concern.
Typically, a bent male organ of such extreme curvature is said to have Peyronieâ€™s disease, named after the doctor credited with first describing the condition. Most of the time, Peyronieâ€™s is caused by a genetic condition or to trauma to the manhood, causing plaque to build up in an area which interferes with the manhood skinâ€™s ability to extend and stretch. When the skin on one side wonâ€™t stretch any further, it causes the member to curve to that side during tumescence.
In some instances, however, this plaque build-up appears to have a different cause â€“ as mentioned, certain medications. At this point, there appear to be three main culprits:
â€¢Beta blockers. Many people with high blood pressure use a class of medications known as beta blockers to stabilize and control it. Also called beta-andrenergic blocking agents, beta blockers operate by slowing down the adrenaline. But they also can cause fibrotic tissue to develop, and when that happens in the member, a bent male organ can result.
â€¢Interferon. Many people with multiple sclerosis or who are being treated for hepatitis C use a tablet called interferon. Doctors have noticed a link between multiple sclerosis and Peyronieâ€™s disease, and many believe that the link may be interferon, rather than multiple sclerosis itself.
â€¢Anticonvulsants. People with epilepsy use anticonvulsants to help manage their condition. Anticonvulsants may also be used to treat other conditions such as bipolar disorder and neuropathic pain. There is some evidence that one anticonvulsant, phenytoin, may contribute to Peyronieâ€™s.
If a man experiences a severely bent male organ and thinks that his medications may be at least partially responsible, he should contact his doctor. Before stopping the medication, he needs to talk with his physician and see what alternative options may be available. There may be other medications which can be tried. He may also want to explore what can be done to address the curvature. In some cases, halting medication does the trick; in others, further treatment may be advised.
A severely bent male organ, whether due to medications or other causes, is not necessarily a sign of poor male organ health â€“ but sometimes paying attention to member health can help alleviate some of the pain associated with the bending. Using a top drawer male organ health crÃ¨me (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) is strongly advised. Take time to look for a crÃ¨me that contains vitamin C. Why? Because this vitamin is a key component in collagen, which helps give male organ skin tone and elasticity, which can be beneficial when excess curvature is present. The crÃ¨me should also include L-carnitine, a neuroprotectiuve ingredient which can help maintain manhood sensation which may diminish due to plaque build-up.
