I was diagnosed with Peyronie's Disease early this year.
During this time, I have become increasingly aware of what I put in my body.

I have used Rogaine on and off over the years, but am wondering if this could potentially
complicate or cause Erectile Dysfunction and make treating Peyronie's Disease more difficult.

Since the exact mechanism of Rogaine is not know, some say it widens blood vessels which
in theory could make maintaining healthy erections more difficult, I thought I would ask members' input.

I just don't know.
I want to treat my hair loss, but obviously not make my Peyronies Disease worse.

Thank you.

Douglas.

I don't think Rogaine is thought to be all that much of a problem as it is topical and localized (for the most part) to the scalp.  However, you'll find a ton of guys who had problems on Propecia, which is systemic and dramatically affects DHT/testosterone production.
