Man, I hope my focus on eating better helps me out.

Glad you have someone that understands and you can share this with.

My uro told me to take 2000 IU of vitamin D, I’m still taking 1000.

I’ve been taking vitamins for years, didn’t wanna take more.

This is very concerning, how are you now? Has it worsened or gotten better?

It got slightly worse but it’s purely cosmetic. It works as it should so it’s not worth putting my body through that trauma again to fix a cosmetic issue.

You just have to give it a try because everyone's  chemical makeup is different and how you react to it.  I was on Losartan for about 8 years and it actually helped my Erectile Dysfunction. I have tried metropolol and cardizem and they both cause bad Erectile Dysfunction for me, but I know of other individuals that it did not. You definitely do not want to use a diuretic as they are famous for causing impotence.

If you are in the chronic phase of peyronies it is possible to cause further damage from masturbation. It all depends on the roughness of it and whether you used lube and whether you had a very hard erection. Rule of thumb is to try and abstain from sex if possible during the acute stage. If you must masturbate then gentle is the rule with a lot of lube and the hardest erection you can achieve. Also don't go for a marathon session either  :)

You really need labwork to confirm that your vitamin D levels are low before starting a supplemental program.

Yesterday I had the scan and today I read the results from radiology. Most notable was on the cover that read no significant finding. However, I’m not sure what their definition of significance is at the bottom of the report it Read:

1. There are degenerative changes of the lower lumbar spine
as above. Radiographically, the most prominent findings
occur within the right, distal neural foramina at L5-S1.
There is a partially calcified posterior disc protrusion
that is creating moderate left neural foraminal narrowing.

2. With respect to left-sided pain, there is mild left
neural foraminal narrowing at L4-L5.

Not sure what any of that means I’m sure I’ll hear from the spine clinic soon. If there’s one thing I know calcification is never ideal

Hi to all of you, guys. I suffer from peyronie disease, and after a lot of months without masturbating, today I masturbated. I masturbated without lube, and maybe too roughly (I ejaculated after 15 seconds). After masturbation, foreskin and glans become red. After 3 hours, redness mostly went away. I didn't experience pain, but only a slight burning. When I masturbated, I was 85 % erect (at the maximum of erection I can reach). I'm very scared I may have caused a further trauma or microtrauma which can make my peyronie worse. What is your opinion?

We definitely need a certain amount of vitamin D. I have noticed a reduction in pain and general feeling of well being after time spent in the sun. This should be balanced with a degree of caution if you are pale skinned and rarely exposed to the sun, because of the risk with skin cancer. In a nutshell, 30 minutes a day is probably more than adequate adequate in these cases. Long periods with unprotected skin is high risk for some.

I have also read that high dosage supplemental vitamin D over a prolonged period can be risky for the kidneys. I know many have been dosing up due to covid, however there are other things we need to be aware of.

Has anyone any experience of using this drug to control high blood pressure? Said to be better than other Beta blockers for men suffering erectile dysfunction.
