So am worried about my sexual life. I had not sex yet before. So please advice me about my problem.

Dear Raj,

The likely diagnosis is called "congenital penile curvature".  Assuming this is the diagnosis (as I can not be definitive without being able to see and examine you), the cause is one side of the penis growing longer than the other prior to birth.  The best treatment is a surgery called plication where the long side is shortened just enough to straighten the penis.  This is a surgery best done by an expert who only does male reconstructive Urology.  Certainly a penis with disabling curvature can be straightened if the surgery is properly performed.
