Coping and support

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Peyronie's disease can be a source of significant anxiety and create stress between you and your sexual partner. The following suggestions may help you cope with Peyronie's disease:

  • Explain to your partner what Peyronie's disease is and how it affects your ability to have sex.
  • Let your partner know how you feel about the appearance of your penis and your ability to have sexual relations.
  • Talk to your partner about how the two of you can maintain sexual and physical intimacy.
  • Talk to a psychological counselor (psychotherapist) who specializes in family relations and sexual matters.
