Achy testicles
« on: February 13, 2015, 12:17:56 am »
Anyone ever experienced Achy testicles? Today I was driving around at work not doing much and for about 30 minutes my left testicle was in quite a bit of pain. It has subsided since then but just wondering if anyone else has experienced this?

I had that during the first few weeks on TRT.
I had it when I came off TRT.
I have it now that I am on anastrozole and my testosterone level is increasing again.

I seem to get it when my testicles are either 'shutting down' or firing back into life

Have you recently changed your treatment protocol?
I am not medically trained or qualified. This is not medical advice.

Yeah, a couple of guys have had this from shutting down.  I don't think from the other way around.

If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.

No. No changes lately. But I feel like they are smaller than they were a couple tears ago. And definetly not as firm as they used to be. Sometimes when I'm having sex, they go up inside me.

Of course, I'd ask a doc as a number of other things can cause it, esp if it persists...

Any ideas on what would cause this?

What you're experiencing is a common side effect of TRT.  Since exogenous testosterone shuts down your body's natural production of the pituitary hormones (LH and FSH) responsible for testosterone and sperm production, your testes will not function as they used to.

They're accustomed to receiving these signals from your pituitary gland, which tell them to get to work.  Now that those signals have ceased the testes don't have much of a workload, so they'll start to shrink and the consistency of the testes may become "spongy".  Along with atrophy comes aches and discomfort.  Not all guys will experience the pain, but it's very common.

This is one of several reasons that men use hCG as part of their TRT protocol.  HCG is an LH mimick, so it's basically tricking your testes into thinking that they have a job to do, which results in them maintaining their size and firmness.  It will also allow you to maintain normal semen volume and help preserve fertility.

I don't know how anyone skipped over the question of HcG use....? Are you using HcG, or only Testosterone. If you're on Test and not using HcG, yes, you're nuts will shrink and some people have physical pain as that organ essentially fails and dies.

In that case I'd head to a urologist for a physical exam and ultrasound.  Varioceles have been known to cause pain and/or atrophy.

Im of the medical belief that if it happens once, meh, shit happens. If something like that happens again, I'd make a call.
