Could aneros cause this?

    I have been using the helix and peridise for a while now, approx. over a year. Right after I started using these devices I noticed an increase in the curvature of my penis. I have always had a little bit of curvature but now it is really bad. The curvature points downward and almost looks like a fish hook. My erections are very hard and now when I get this hard, it has gotten to where it is painful. When me and my wife ML, it has gotten to where it hurts. :(

    Has anyone ever had this happen? Any ideas or suggestions?

    PS: also within the last month I started to notice dark blood in my semen when I ejaculated. I am under the care of a doctor right now and they advised me not to use the device right now until this clears up.

    ffd71,

    I am not a doctor but it sounds like you have a condition similar to mine called Peyronies’s disease. This is a treatable condition and it is unlikely that Aneros usage is in anyway related to its onset.
    I advise you to contact your doctor soon to begin treatment. Delaying treatment may cause permanent deformity of the penile structure.

    Rumel,

    Thanks for the reply and I have been discussing this with my doctor. There is not really much information on this for treatment. Since they really don't know what causes this, it is hard to treat something that they don't know what causes it.

    If you have this, what are you doing about it? I have read a lot about this and not sure what to do about it. My doctor is a Naturopathic Doctor and she is not 100% sure what to do about this and surgey is not one I want. I would rather do something that is natural to fix the problem. I was just curious if anyone out there has this problem and if anything they done worked.

    It seems that this condition did not occur until I started the prostate massages whether it had anything to do with it or not, I dunno? Just seems coincidental.

    So, does anyone know what works? Massage therapy? Traction devices? Homeopathic etc?

    ffd71,

    In my case I am fairly certain my case of Peyronie’s was caused by trauma (my penis got bent during sexual intercourse, cowgirl on top), this was long before beginning my Aneros journey. The doctor in my case prescribed ultra-sound treatments for about two weeks. This was intended to breakup the fibrous plaque that causes the deformation. While the treatments did ease the curvature problem and painful erections did eventually abate, I was left with a permanently foreshortened penis, that could only reach about 2/3 of its former glory. This occurred many years ago. I think there are traction devices available now to help correct this problem. As the Wikipedia article recommended, it is probably wise to consult with a urologist who specializes in this condition for your best treatment options.
    I think your Aneros use is purely coincidental, this condition was medically identified long before the existence of Aneros massagers, so I don’t think there is any causal relationship.

    Rumel and Darwin,

    Thanks for the replies. First off my condition did not appear until I started using the aneros. It is possible that it is coincidental and I would like to think that anyway. I would like to continue my use of the aneros because it did help a lot. My doctor seems to think that with the prostate massages which brought about increased blood flow to this area may have caused my curvature to be more pronounced. I have had deep discussions with my doctor about this condition. My doctor has talked with 2 urologists about my condition and both advised that my condition would probably correct itself over time and not to be alarmed. Most urologists want to prescribe medication or do surgery and I do not want to do either one of them. The urologists that my doctor spoke with advised that he had been prescribing medication for this condition and has not seen any good results from the medication. So I am not real sure what to do and both urologists advised that there was not much treatment options in this area that they were aware of. So now what? Does anyone know out there whether the traction devices actually work for this condition?

    Rumel,

    I have looked at pictures on the internet and my condition appears to be that peyronies disease. The one thing that this condition has that I DON'T have, is the hard plaque that can be felt. I have felt for these nodules that seems to be a sign of this disease and I have not been able to feel these on me. The only thing that I have noticed is that approx. 1" from the pelvic bone, there appears to be an area like "my penis is broken and pivots at that point". As far as I know I have never fractured my penis or had any trauma to it so I am not sure what is going on. It is really weird.

    the first thing you need is a diagnosis. to get that, you should make an appointment with a urologist.

    i do not think discussing this with your doctor, whether or not he has talked about the case with urologists, is a substitute for seeing the specialist. it is not reasonable practice for a urologist to comment on a case *without seeing the patient*.

    i understand your concern that some urologists may be inclined to medication or surgery. but, not all. and, in many cases, those are excellent solutions. i hope you don't subscribe to the dangerous idea that all medication and surgery is to be avoided. your fear or concern about this is not a reason to avoid the urologist. you can always evaluate the possible treatments and make an informed decision about them. but, by not going you are just blocking yourself from learning about your condition.

    ffd71,

    I didn’t have hard plaque either, it was more like an increased density of tissue in an area of the shaft. From the reading I have done and discussion with my urologist, the trauma isn’t always immediately noticed and the soreness can show at a later date as it did in my case. There are many sources of information available on the internet, just Google – Peyronie’s Disease for pages of links.
    I do agree with ‘Darwin’ that your best approach is to consult with a urological specialist to plan a course of action.
