Hi, My penis (6.8'') has a downward curvature of 30 - 35 degrees and so I'm very concerned about my functionality. Is this ok? What should I do?

In brief: Let it be...

If erections are painful consider Peyronie's disease and see your doctor. Otherwise let it be.

Is this a new condition Had the penis been strIght before then slowly developed ventral bend Peyronies may occur and the abnormality is typically on the dorsal aspect of the penile shaft not allowing the erection bodies to expand and therefor bending upward. InJectable agents are not approved for ventral plaques and you need a through urologic assessment and possible surgical correction.

In brief: Chordee

Most downward penile curvatures are congenital, often associated with hypospadias.
Sometimes can occur after after penile fracture. Your penis may well be satisfactory for sex, especially for vaginal entry from behind (so called doggy style). If necessary, problem can be corrected surgically by urologist experienced in reconstructive penile surgery or by pediatric urologist. Good Luck

In brief: ?peyronie's

A certain degree of curvature of the penis is considered normal, as many men are born with this benign condition, commonly referred to as congenital curvature.
Peyronie's Disease is a connective tissue disorder involving the growth of fibrous plaques in the soft tissue of the penis affecting 5% of men. Specifically, scar tissue forms in the tunica albuginea, the thick sheath of tissue surrounding the corpora cavernosa causing pain, abnormal curvature, erectile dysfunction, indentation, loss of girth and shortening. A variety of treatments have been used, but none have been especially effective.

In brief: NMS

but you should consult an urologist about this since your penis should be curving upward and not downward.
On the other hand, if it works for you and your partner, then all's well regardless of the curvature
