Clinical Factors Negatively Impacting Sexual Relationships in Men with Peyronie's Disease

Here, we sought to identify clinical factors associated with a negative impact on the relationship in Peyronie's Disease patients. During initial consultation, a detailed sexual questionnaire was administered, which included a question on whether or not PD negatively impacted the current sexual relationship. 146/242 (60.3%) patients reported that PD negatively impacted their sexual relationship. On multivariate analysis, penile shortening, partner pain with intercourse, and shorter relationship duration were associated with a negative relationship effect. We did not identify significant differences in negative relationship effects based on objective physical examination findings including penile curvature, calcification, hourglass deformity, or penile length.
