How can penis disorders affect my sex life?

Penis disorders may have an impact on your sex life, especially if the condition is left untreated. If you're diagnosed with a sexually transmitted disease or an infection, you should avoid having sex until you've completed treatment. Sometimes, the disorder itself will physically prevent you from having sex. Certain penis disorders may make you unable to get or keep an erection long enough to have sex. Other conditions may make sex painful. If your penis disorder interferes with your sex life, make sure to maintain open and honest communication with your partner so there are no misunderstandings or feelings of guilt or resentment. To prevent penis disorders from having a lasting impact on your sex life, talk to your doctor to find a treatment option that works for you.
