It's not clear if "Stiff Nights" is a "dietary supplement" as its maker claims, or a bad b-movie title, but in either case the FDA says men looking to "regain the thunder" should stay clear because the pill really contains sulfoaildenafil, an untested chemical similar to the active ingredient in Viagra, which can interact badly with nitrates and cause low blood pressure.
With a rigid ruler handy, get a full erection. Lay the ruler along the top of your penis (that is, the side that faces upward when you're standing with your penis sticking straight out), and press the end of the ruler firmly against your body (where the pubic hair is). Hold your penis against the ruler with your hand, straighten out as much as possible any curvature that may exist, and try to hold your penis so that it's sticking straight out from your body. Then, looking straight down, determine the ruler reading at the very end of your penis.
Peyronie’s disease refers to an abnormal curvature of the penis that is caused by scar tissue, also called a plaque, in erectile tissue . Peyronie’s disease has the ability to make your erection shrink or become deformed. Prompt treatment for the disease is important and can include treatments like vitamin E, steroids, collagenase, and verapamil. In some cases, surgical intervention is required, although conservative therapies should be exhausted before turning to surgical procedures . Other studies have found that administration of these ED medications for penile fibrosis is not only safe, but these medications have anti-fibrotic properties that may relieve fibrotic plaques in localized and widespread fibrosis in penile tissue .
Men dealing with erectile dysfunction (ED) have a higher risk of dealing with penile shrinkage. One study that included 1,027 adult men looked at normal adult men and ED patients with no differences in height, race, weight, and age. The ED patients have a significantly shorter penis length, showing an association between ED and shrinkage . Another case-control study also found that both diabetic and nondiabetic men with ED dealt with a decline in penile dimensions, and the decline was even more prevalent in diabetic patients . Working with your doctor to find an effective treatment for ED may help prevent shrinkage due to ED, and if you have comorbidities like diabetes along with ED, effectively managing both may be important to prevent a decline in penile dimensions.
