Bent Penis Caused by Meds?
Mar 14, 2008

I am 45 yrs old, type 1 diabetic for 35 years, and HIV+ for 12 years. I recently noticed that my penis is bent/curved like a bananna. Could it be caused by the HIV, the meds or the diabetes? I am taking the following meds: reyataz, norvir, sustiva,testosterone cypionate, tricor, zetia, zestril and bactrim. My penis functions OK, but I noticed the curve about 2 months ago. Thank you.

Response from Dr. Henry

I haven't observed nor seen reported any link between particular HIV meds and a curved penis. If any reader has a reference please post. KH

Kind of Embarrasing
