This case report details the care of a male patient with Peyronie disease
to address the female partner's recalcitrant dyspareunia
, which has not previously been reported in medical literature.
The male partner was symptom free aside from a slight tightness that he described as a tugging sensation when erect, but the female partner was experiencing varying degrees of dyspareunia
since the start of their sexual relationship. Clinical findings included soft tissue restrictions in the abdomen and penis as well as limitations in hip mobility bilaterally. He was seen 14 times over 16 weeks. Treatment approach included soft tissue mobilization, hip joint mobilization, ultrasound
, hip stretching, and penile traction
The patient and his partner reported significant improvement in penile mobility, disappearance of the penile curve, and pain-free sexual encounters.
This article represents a case in which treatment of the male partner was instrumental in fully addressing the female partner's dyspareunia
, which may represent a point of consideration for patients with recalcitrant dyspareunia
whose partners also have Peyronie disease
Obtained from the patient and the patient's partner.
