Does Peyronie’s Disease Cause Premature Ejaculation?

No, Peyronie’s disease does not cause premature ejaculation. Peyronie’s is a condition in which a small plaque or scar tissue under the skin of the penis causes the penis to curve, bend or even indent during erection.

It’s important to note that curvature of the penis is normal. Normal curvature of fewer than 30 degrees is common and completely OK.

Can Peyronie’s disease indirectly cause premature ejaculation?

Peyronie’s disease can cause erectile dysfunction, which can, in turn, lead to premature ejaculation. This usually happens when men with ED rush to penetrate when they finally get an erection. Rushing penetration makes them ejaculate early; over time this becomes a fixed habit.

What are the true causes of premature ejaculation?

Premature ejaculation can be caused by a number of reasons:

  1. A behavioral learning problem (When a man accidentally “trains” himself to ejaculate early during masturbation)
  2. Genetics
  3. Sexual Performance anxiety
  4. General stress or depression
  5. Low serotonin levels
