I've read that even with perfect use, a bike seat can dramatically reduce blood flow to the penis. With a poor-fitting one, I imagine it does much worse. Could this be the cause of the inflammation? I rode with poor-fitting seats for years, and then suddenly, at 26, got Peyronie's.

Well... i am not sure about peyronies. But one of the things that riding the bike too much causes is Erectile Dysfunction. Heres a video on it. https://youtu.be/UczXXgLwEpk

I did see dr. Goldstein back in 2016.

How expensive is it to get repaired?

It is very costly. There is also a lot of criteria you have to meet. You can schedule a courtesy 10 minute call with him. There's also more info on the YouTube channel and his website. Medical papers as well on pubmed

I assume this is one of those lovely things that medical insurance won't cover as well, right?

I had a few bike accidents that certainly may have been related to my Peyronie's disease. I would not be surprised if bad seats could make it much worse.

Yes, you are correct. Everything out of pocket. It's in the US.
