Testicular Shrinkage Due To Masturbation?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Masturbation should not affect the size or size of the testes. But masturbation you shouldn't overdo it, because it can cause irritation to genital sores, addiction, rapid brain shrinkage, to erectile dysfunction that can lead to infertility.
When erect, the muscles around the genitals and lower abdomen to contract quite badly. This muscle contraction can pull the testicles upward, so that their size seems to shrink. As long as this condition is only temporary and returns again after an erection by itself, often this condition is not dangerous and need not worry too.
If you find your testicles appear small on the side, and this does not only occur during an erection, this condition can also occur due to other causes, such as testicular atrophy, formation of scar tissue around the testicles, hormonal disorders, enlargement of the testicles on the other side (for example due to varicoceles, hydrocele, hernias), and so on.
You can check the condition of your testes directly to the doctor or a specialist in urology surgery to be further evaluated and assessed, whether it is still considered reasonable, or not. The doctor will also determine the best treatment after undergoing the examination.
At this time, you should not stress or worry too much. In addition to stopping masturbation habits, you should focus on keeping your intimate organs clean (including around the testicles). Don't lift weights that are too heavy, and also avoid your testicles from being exposed to excessive heat (for example due to the use of tight pants, sitting too long, and so on).
Hope this helps ...
