    Everyone's saying bent penis is normal. But how would I know if my penis is in a normal 'bent range'? Also, I'm only 20, is there still any chances for me to straighten it back and how? Why is my penis bent? Is it causing by masturbation?

    Your penis will not straighten out, but the curve is not due to masturbation. Most men do have a slight curve in the penis. I masturbate with my right had and my penis still curves to the left. Don't worry about it unless it makes a sharp turn like a 90 degree angle. Then i'd see a doctor. Keep masturbating, it's good for your sexual health and studies now show its good for your heart.

    I am male.21 years old.My penis is bent downwards when it gets erected. No pain while erceting or ejaculating or masturbating.From the day one onwards it gets erected its like that only.. Bent in downward position.I think the bend is somewhat like banana shape..or may be little more than that(a bit confused).I used to masturbate more often for the pas 5-6 years..Do i have any disease? Any infection? Is it a genetic problem?

    I am 50 years old. Been masturbating daily since about 8 years old mine goes to the left. I'm embarrassed because mines only about four and a half inches when its erect.

    Problem known as 'banding'. Simple surgery releases downward pull so penis can be straight. Easy fix

    HI im 26. and i keep on having issues with my hands/fingers.Iv had it on and off for 5yrs now. It pops up mostly during the autumn-winter months but iv had it in april. My fingers tend to swell very slowly and they are sometimes itch/sting. they swell so bad i cant bend my fingers and do simple things like brushing my hair without it hurting..keeping them warm makes them worse but letting them get too cold makes the tips of my fingers go blue. Iv had ultrasounds and xrays and blood test and its nothing related to arthritus or reynolds! could cutting out certain foods help??

    Hi, assuming that you are muslim, i believe you don't learn sexual education in school because of your religion, but i think i can answer to that. The size and shape of a penis varies a lot, some can be bend up, others down, mine is bend to the left side as well, and a lot, but you shouldn't be worried about the ovaries because women have two of them, and in both sides and when the penis ejaculates, the sperm will go by itself "swimming" to reach the closest ovary, so you don't need to be afraid of it, because don't matter the size or shape, the human anatomy always ensures that you will be able to please your woman and to give her children.

    I have been informed of my having Dupuytren`s Contracture by my GP (2012), in both hands this giving me three years in which I`d lose use of both hands. Two others in the family (both Females)also have this condition. My question yet unanswered by anybody is: Why are my hands/fingers being effected in the exact opposite to that of Dupuytren`s? I am unable to bend my fingers so Why is this so, and is it possible that my hands are being effected by two conditions at the same time the second being Carpel Tunnel Syndrome? If so, what treatments are available and what are the prospects of regaining full use of my fingers?

    I would be interested in any information about the enzyme injection treatment for Dupuytrens contracture, on behalf of a relative,who has this condition in the little fingers on both hands.She has had an operation on both of her fingers to straighten them but they are completely bent over again, despite one of the operations being done less than a year ago.

    hi i have Peyronie’s Disease and over 5years ago had a penile pump fitted which is causing me some problems. i had a second pump fitted 2 years ago but this has not helped in anyway the pain i get is the same as being hit in the testicals over thirty times a day ive tried to contact my consultant but just keep getting fobbed off in one way or another

    It is perfectly normal, some people have bent penises- it's just how it is. Though if it gets TOO bent when you're older, then you could get a surgery which cuts the tissue and straightens it.

    hi david, its not 'ben', its 'bent', my mistake on the mistype. Im starting to be okay with the size, but the bent drives me crazy, it looks ugly. I think it would lead into an awkward sex too.

    AH! Thanks for the clarification. OK, first of all, some bending and curving is normal, but when the bending and curving is extreme enough to cause problems,then they get the diagnosis of Peyronie’s disease – or “the bent spike.” One of the causes is a build-up of placque (or scar tissue) inside the penis shaft. This will cause the bending in that direction. One guy I knew of had the placque scraped out and afterwards he had a very nice straight erection - for awhile, but then bit by bit it began to bend again. The photo he showed to me for his doctor showed a bending of 30 degrees. Like you, he thought this would cause awkward sex, but I encouraged him to give it a try and he was please there were no problems. If you choose to consult with a urologist about this, please discuss the potential problem of placque build-up after the surgery. I'm sure you won't want to have this surgery every two or three years for the rest of your life.

    I have had chilblains since I was 9 I am now 13 it always happens during late November or early December to January. I wear gloves to stop myself itching my fingers as it only happens there but it gets gets too much sometimes. When I stretch out my fingers to see how bad it is. It always double in size on my bone so it hurts when it bend my fingers. Does any one have any advice please?? My fingers are originally brown but when I get chilblains they are cherry red

    hot water treatment will give u extremely relief... try dis 4-5 times in a day..or b4 going 2 bed...wen it becomes so much irritated 4 us...so drowning ur feets in normally hot water for 15 mintes each tym...best of luck...

    if its just slightly bent its one of those things and totally normal. if its severely bent its the (i want to say ligament but thats probably the wrong word) and you can get it straighten out with surgery. unless its causing a problem i wouldnt worry about it. oh, unless its a sudden thing in which case i would go and see a doctor.

    I'm 17 and my penis has always bent to the left, I don't know if I'm noticing it more now or it has bent further, but compared to straight it's about 30 degrees to the left. There's no pain or lumps at all is my curve anything to be worried about?

    It's only a worry if it's interfering with your sex life. You are of an age when you may know this already. Pls see my comments above, the same applies to you. Your condition is known as congenital curvature of the penis and can be fixed with surgery should you so desire.

    Froggy style, have her lay on her stomach and you on top, I have a downward bent penis is every girl loves it... Don't worry when you have sex your penis will rub her walls more since its bent! Hope this helps in time...

    Ihad a operation on my Penis about 3 years ago because it was bent, The surgeon said he could make it straight after about 2years it bent again, it is thin at the bottom and thick at the top ive been back to see the specalist and he said injections would give me an erection he injected me but i was in agony due to loss of inches due to the opp, it as also put me of sex

    A guy I knew had a bent penis also and had an operation. His penis was nice and straight for several months, but then, like you, it started to bend. Right now, it bends to the left at 30 degrees. He decided to do nothing more about it and is having a normal and happy sex life. I would encourage you to do so research for a thoroughly competent urologist in your area. If there is a university medical school in your region, perhaps they will have an entire department to help you.

    i am 17 years old and my Penis is really bent and im really embarrassed about it. it bends like a boomerang, it is ok when i masturbate but when i tried to have sex with my ex-girlfriend it wouldn't go in because it is bent so much and she looked at me very disappointed and never spoke to me again. is it only me with a bendy willy? i feel very self concious and wonder if i will ever have another girlfriend

    no, heaps of guys (most guys in fact) have a curve in their cock. if it increases in angle go ssee a doctor, as that could be an issue, but otherwise its how you are supposed to be.

    Do check it depends on the degree of bentness... if that makes any sense and depends once again on the person. Every guys penis is different in many ways from size to shape to angle. As the other reply said they are usually a bit bent and also it is more comftable for the girl or guy and you if it is bent.
