    Questions about erection health

    Hi I'm a 23 year old male and I have a question about curved penises and whether I should be concerned. Mine curves downward and to the left, but it seems as though the curve comes from two different sources. The leftward curve seems to come from the base of the penis whereas the downward (banana type) curve comes from the shaft itself. I cannot feel any hardened plaque areas on the shaft or around the base so I'm not inclined to believe it's Peyronie's. I am a virgin (as is my girlfriend) so I cannot state as to whether this curve interferes with intercourse. The curve is not severe, however, but becomes noticeable when semi- or fully erect. Thank you for any insight to this

    Note: I used to wear constricting underwear (briefs) would this effect things?

    If you have health insurance, get checked about by a urologist.
    I developed Peyronie's later in life and talked to the urologist at my hmo. He said there is no cure. Unless it is painful, it shouldn't be an issue during intercourse Mine curves upward and a little to the left. I consider it an enhancement.
