Every man’s penis is different. They vary in size and shape. It might even be normal to have a slight curve in your penis. But if you notice a significant bend has formed when your penis is erect, it’s time to ask a urologist if it could be Peyronie’s disease.
If you have Peyronie’s disease, you may notice one or more of these symptoms:
XIAFLEX® is a prescription medicine used to treat adult men with Peyronie’s disease who have a “plaque” that can be felt and a curve in their penis greater than 30 degrees when treatment is started. It is not known if XIAFLEX® is safe and effective in children under the age of 18.
Due to the symptoms of Peyronie’s disease and the way XIAFLEX® has been studied, you need to have the following 2 symptoms in order to start treatment with XIAFLEX®:
Treatment involves a series of injections given by trained urologists in their office. When paired with gentle stretching and straightening of the penis, XIAFLEX® is proven to help reduce erectile curvature.
For each treatment cycle, do not have sex or engage in any other sexual activity:
Part of your commitment to treatment means performing the 2 types of penile modeling activities (stretching and straightening) at home daily for 6 weeks at the end of each treatment cycle.
Gently stretch your penis 3 times a day. Only stretch your penis if your penis is not hard (erect).
Gently straighten your penis once a day. Only straighten your penis if you have an erection that happens without any sexual activity (spontaneous erection). Bending your penis should not cause any pain or discomfort.
XIAFLEX® can cause serious side effects, including penile fracture (corporal rupture) or other serious injury to the penis. Receiving an injection of XIAFLEX® may cause damage to the tubes in your penis called the corpora. After treatment with XIAFLEX®, one of these tubes may break during an erection. This is called a corporal rupture or penile fracture. This could require surgery to fix the damaged area. Damage to your penis might not get better after a corporal rupture.
