wow, i just previewed this and it's VERY LONG. i hope someone reads it. anyway, here it goes.
Hello, everyone, just saw the forum recently while going crazy on the web trying to find out what's causing my symptoms (haven't we all), so i decided to post and ask everyone here if they've had something similar happen to them because i am freaking out. I will try to keep it as short as i can, but i really want to mention everything that might have something to do with my current condition.
I am 29 and in good health other than being a bit out of shape from sitting too much on a computer. Never been fat, i am 180 cm tall, 75 kg. but i a have a little belly which is normal i guess when you sit too much. The last 2-3 years i have masturbated maybe way too much, even when i had sexual relationships i still masturbated daily. When i didn't i masturbated even more, 2 times a day at least and up to 5-6 sometimes i guess. Still i never had problems, my testicles were very firm and my penis could get erect literally on command.
And then something happened literally over night and i'm not sure what caused it. I had sex that night, and before i ejaculated the girl pressed with her hand between my testicles. She did it a bit harder, but i didn't feel any pain at all. I have to mention this, because the problem started the next morning. Woke up, went to the toilet and felt that my penis was softer, like the skin was more tender and i somehow felt that it was detached from my testicles. I felt that day that i couldn't get a good erection, but didn't think too much of it, so i continued as normal, but only a couple of days later i noticed my testicles started getting saggy and loose. After 5-6 days they were all over the place, i felt like i had NO SCROTUM, like there wasn't anything to hold them in place. It's sort of a weightless feeling. Even with an erection, my testicles are all over the place and when i lay on my back they are just flat like a pancake. I have no pain except for a slight pulling sensation on the left side just over my penis. I started having weaker erections and my penis started getting dry, there was no precum when i had an erection and the color didn't look natural, like a forced erection or something like that. It is important to mention that i started urinating a lot more frequently than before, but attributed that to my cold at the time. I started panicking of course and went to a urologist immediately. I had unprotected sex with a couple of girls so i thought it may have something to do with that.
The urologist who saw me said that there was nothing abnormal with my penis and testicles (although it looked completely different from before but he wouldn't know that of course), he took a swab sample, urine culture, sperm culture (i guess that's what they're called in English) and i tested positive for a bacteria called Streptococcus agalacticae. I was like, oh so that's what caused it, great. He gave me antibiotics and when i did the test again i was clean. But the problems didn't go away at all, they got worse. My penis was completely lifeless and my testicles totally mushy and all over the place, i was afraid to sit for a while because they were so stretched and saggy that i could sit on them. I started feeling extreme depression, had no libido, couldn't sleep at all and generally lost the will to live.
I went to a second urologist 3 months later (around 4 months ago), he also said that everything is normal on touch and look. He touched my prostate and said it was fine, and the ultrasound was ok as well. Of course he thought i was in panic and imagining things because of my erection problem. He recommended these pills [edited by moderator] and said patients were satisfied with them. I took them and they really helped with my erection (this is not a commercial), but even when i was having very hard erections, something didn't feel right, the precum still wasn't there and the testicles were still very loose, only before ejaculating they were getting contracted. Anyway i took em for 2 weeks and had solid erections maybe a week or two after that. After that it was back to square one. Went back to see him and he told me to check my lower back, maybe there's something impinged. I did that and it was all fine.
I took another 10-15 of those pills because i was extremely depressed, but i NEVER stopped masturbating, because i somehow felt that if i continue masturbating, everything is normal. But it wasn't at all. Then i started reading about testosterone on the internet and i went to check my level. I didn't think it was the problem because it happened OVER NIGHT and i thought "well my T couldn't have dropped so low all of a sudden". I just asked the urologist if they did testosterone tests and i went and did it. He didn't mention when is the best time of day to do it, so i didn't know about that. I went at around 18:00 i think. (keep in mind i had some pills the days before i wasn't aware of this either and that MONKEY didn't tell me anything)
My T level was 451 ng/dl and i had FSH 2.53, the doctor said it was good but at that point i didn't believe anything he was saying anymore. By the way in the meantime i did every possible blood test and it was all within normal limits.
Went to a third urologist who is an esteemed doctor in my country, he did the ultrasound too and didn't see anything, he also thought there was nothing wrong with me and told me: don't worry, you are fine, get a suspender for your testicles and don't worry...
So here i am still with the same problem. I stopped masturbating and watching porn completely a week ago, and like two months or so ago i started doing some exercise (which is still far from enough) and taking vitamin C and Magnesium. My energy and libido are somewhat better and i do get more sleep than i used to, but the other symptoms remain. Three urologists didn't know what to tell me and they all thought it was psychological. I am trying to remain positive, but i have episodes where i am near breakdown.
It is very important to mention that my testicles are a bit better in the morning after a good night sleep, and at night it's really gross because my testicles are extremely loose. Oh and i have morning erections but even then the testicles are not firm.
I don't know how to finish this, or if i missed something, i would gladly answer all your questions and even provide pics if you want, because i really am getting desperate.
