Peyronie's disease is an acquired condition that affects 9% of men. One in 11 will present with Peyronie’s disease in their lifetime. Peyronie’s disease is a scarring process in the penis that leads to a plaque buildup and development of a curvature and narrowing or indentations of the penis. Patients may have painful erections as the curvature evolves or it may resolve by itself.

Patients often ask whether pills, such as Viagra, have any benefit in the management of Peyronie’s disease. Unfortunately, oral therapies such as Viagra and other pills have not been shown to successfully improve either the curvature or the condition related to Peyronie’s disease. While Viagra has not shown any evidence of improving penile deformity associated with Peyronie’s disease, Viagra does help with vasodilation or increasing the blood flow into the penis and therefore improving erections in men with Peyronie’s disease.

As such, all international societies such as the American Urologic Association, the International Society for Sexual Medicine, and the Sexual Medicine Society of North America all recommend against using Viagra for the management of Peyronie's disease. There is currently no evidence to support the use of Viagra or any other oral pills or supplements for the management of Peyronie’s disease. Viagra has not been shown to improve the curvature or the deformity that is associated with Peyronie’s disease. As such, it is not recommended.
