I am 29 years old and have suffered with a curvature of the erect penis since birth. The curvature is upward with no hypospadias. There has been no noticeable change in the extent of curvature over time, and I have had no problem developing or maintaining an erection (although there is occasional discomfort upon erection subsequent to recent ejaculation, and premature ejaculation has been common). The curvature makes full penetration difficult. Would this be chordee or some other related problem? What, if any, would the treatment options be and would they be covered by a basic health insurance plan?
I hope you can help with this and await your advice.

My penis curves downward when erect & has since my earliest recollections. It is not a sharp curve, more like a banana in shape. I have trouble staying in in certain positions during sex & my wife says other positions are very difficult for her. Usually I can not penetrate her all the way as a result of the discomfort. I have a rather large penis, so this may be part of it, but I think the curve is the real problem.
I too would like to know if anything can be done about this or is my curvature just something I have to continue to live with? I am not familiar with the condition names you mention, so I can't help you there.
Thanks for any help anyone can post.
