User :   hello doctor, can i ask you a question?
Doctor :   hi.
Doctor :   Dr. XXXXXXXX here
Doctor :   please proceed with your health query
User :   ok
User :   first of all, please excuse my English, it's not that good
Doctor :   it is fine, you can proceed.
User :   I have a question with my testicle
User :   the bag of my testicle is so loose and look so not healthy
User :   is it a problem?
Doctor :   the bag being loose, is not a problem at all, if it has fluid accumulation or mass other than testis, or swelling in testis, would mean a problem
User :   ok
Doctor :   the bag is supposed to be loose, it is protective mechanism to keep testis away from body in heated environment
Doctor :   as high temperature will affect normal sperm production
User :   so is there any way that it can be tight and look healthy?
Doctor :   in cold weather conditions, it wil automatically get tigh with skin getting pulled up
Doctor :   the unhealthy look that you are concerned need to be examined by an urologist to see if really it should be worried about.
Doctor :   if it is found unhealthy or with any infection, then treatment would be prescribed.
Doctor :   if it is found to be normal then you can leave it alone, it is not an abnormality
Doctor :   have you followed what I have said?
User :   yes doc
Doctor :   is there anything else I can help you with?
User :   but i'm thinking how to explain my situation
User :   yes
User :   ok
Doctor :   you discus syour problem in detail with the urologist
Doctor :   tell him how you told me about the problem
Doctor :   after an examination, he will tell you whether it is normal, or you need any treatment.
User :   ok, but can i ask you another situation?
Doctor :   yes please proceed.
User :   let say, when i was in a party, and I danced with a girl, she grind on my body
User :   i know i should have some erection
User :   but because of that loose bag of testicle, i couldn't have it up
User :   and i knew she couldn't feel it too
Doctor :   it is not always a necessity to have erection with stimulation. it depends on your mental status and also the psychological status and environment around.
Doctor :   the social setup also plays a role
Doctor :   in th erection. in normal circumstances, you will have an erection when your mind is relaxed and no social inhibition is there.
User :   ok, i believe that
User :   but
Doctor :   is there anything else you would like to ask me?
User :   but if that bag is tight, at least it could support my peanut too, am I right?
Doctor :   the bag being loose will not affect the erection at all
Doctor :   erection process is controlled by psychological, neural and vascular counterparts
Doctor :   all three play a significant role in erection. any defect or problem in these 3 will cause problem in erection
User :   ok i understand about the erection
User :   but i meant if that bag is pulled up and tight, it would support my peanut to feel the body that is grinding on me, right?
Doctor :   no, it will not. it is almost a separate part of the body
Doctor :   it will not help in the sensation or the erection
Doctor :   moreover, getting it pulled up will affect your sperm production due to body heat and lead to infertility problems
Doctor :   it might also affect erection to some extent if it affects sperm production
Doctor :   as testosterone production might also be affected
User :   ok, i'm done with the testicle question. do i have time left to ask another problem?
Doctor :   and if testosterone production is effected, you will land up with erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation
Doctor :   yes please proceed. you have approximately 5 minutes left.
User :   ok, i have question on my peanut
User :   the full erection length is 6 inches
Doctor :   ok
User :   but when it's not hard, it's really tiny
Doctor :   it is normal, you cannot have an erection all the time, at time you are not sexually aroused it is in flaccid state, which is normal
Doctor :   only with sexual arousal, you will have the 3 factors working together to make you have an erection.
User :   but i've been told once by a doctor
User :   he said it's not supposed to look like that
Doctor :   was he speaking of normal state or erect state?
User :   at that i didn't really notice what he said
User :   normal state
User :   i meant at that time
Doctor :   clarify with him or an urologist about the size in flaccid state.
Doctor :   along with the the appearance of the scrotal sac or the testis bag
User :   ok, i think time is up
User :   can i get an emaill of this converstation?
Doctor :   you can get the discussion by going to 'accounts and settings'
Doctor :   and 'chat history'
Doctor :   and export this to your mail ID
