User :   Testicles uneven and OCD with size                                                                 
Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hi
Doctor :   I am Dr. here
User :   I have an obsession with my testicle size (the symmetry of them both)
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   I hope I can help you in explaining it
Doctor :   and clearing your doubts
User :   Its gone too far I'm now masturbating compulsively and constantly staring and taking pictures to see if they've evened out
Doctor :   ok
User :   sometimes it looks evened out and its a massive confidence boost and the opposite effect when they look uneven
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   May I know your age?
User :   23
Doctor :   What is the uneven feel that you are worried about
Doctor :   can you explain that
User :   Well right now I think my left testicle is slightly bigger than my right
User :   but sometimes its the other way round
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Now, you might have done research by this time
Doctor :   slight asymmetry is normal
Doctor :   and left does look bigger
Doctor :   which is the normal finding
User :   I know this. I looked it up on the net but I'm struggling in accepting it
Doctor :   You should not
Doctor :   I reassure you that
User :   I thinks I'm being irrational
Doctor :   Too much of thought on it
User :   Do you think I should get help? It could be a sign of OCD?
Doctor :   is problematic
Doctor :   It is good that you have realised
Doctor :   which is very helpful in reversing it
Doctor :   it is good to take help at earlier stages
Doctor :   You should consult a Psychiatrist
Doctor :   for the issue
User :   Should I stop looking at my testicles constantly after I masturbate?
User :   Even if I masturbate say 7 times in a day will that affect the size of the testicles?
Doctor :   Ofcourse yes
Doctor :   for the first question
Doctor :   for the second question
Doctor :   rather than the effect of doing it 7 times
Doctor :   the act itself is not recommended
User :   why?
Doctor :   it becomes equal to addiction
Doctor :   7 times in a day is not recommended at all
Doctor :   Since when have you been doing it so frequently?
User :   I'm not on 7 times a day. I think I'm 4 or 5
User :   since I became obsessed with my testicle symmetry
User :   Is 4 or 5 still too much?
Doctor :   even 4 or 5 is not at all recommended
Doctor :   it is too much
User :   Does masturbation change the size of the testicles?
Doctor :   No, it does not
User :   I shouldnt do it at all?
Doctor :   I do not say it to anyone
User :   What are the implications of masturbating too much?
Doctor :   but the frequency is too much
Doctor :   psychological effect on your sexual performance
Doctor :   like premature ejaculation
Doctor :   and also too much of strain on your genitals
Doctor :   due to overuse
User :   What is the difference I am noticing in my testicles? Do you think it could be in my head?
Doctor :   Yes, it is mainly psychological
User :   I have noticed sometimes my right can be bigger, and sometimes (like now) my left testicle is bigger
Doctor :   with so much of confusion in your mind
Doctor :   some of the things shall not be true
Doctor :   and cannot be accepted
Doctor :   I hope you agree on that
User :   I think it may have sometime to do with the scrotum changing shape depending on the surrounding temperature
User :   something*
Doctor :   there shall be slight change
Doctor :   but it need not be one sided
Doctor :   like only right or left side
Doctor :   most of the times, even such change shall be on both sides
User :   it can be difficult to compare when my left testicle hangs a lot lower in the heat
Doctor :   it does hang
Doctor :   and is common
Doctor :   normal rather
User :   the biggest problem i have is in my head. I lose so much confidence
Doctor :   I do understand
Doctor :   Do you hesitate to consult a Psychiatrist?
User :   Do you have one available for chat?
Doctor :   We have email consultation or telephonic consultation
Doctor :   which shall be done within 24 hours of request
Doctor :   that is a seperate service
User :   Do you think I should try combating it myself first?
Doctor :   I shall give you the link, if you would like to opt for the same
Doctor :   I do recommend to consult a Psychiatrist without delay
Doctor :   you should not keep waiting for spontaneous recovery
User :   What does the psychiatrist do to help? Talk or issue medication?
Doctor :   For your case, in most probability it shall be both
Doctor :   counseling and medication
User :   I think now I've got the reassurance there is nothing wrong with my physically I'm going to stop obsessing
User :   I'm hesitant to visit a Psychiatrist just yet
Doctor :   I can understand the situation
Doctor :   but you should
Doctor :   for a good remedy
Doctor :   and a healthy life
User :   I'll give it a week and visit my Psychiatrist if the situation remains the same?
Doctor :   I would recommend it still earlier
Doctor :   there is no neccesity to wait
Doctor :   as per my assessment from your description
Doctor :   Arrange for an appointment as early as possible
User :   In any case I'm going to see a Psychiatrist in person not on the net
Doctor :   That is the ideal
Doctor :   Do you have any other questions?
User :   Ermm...
User :   How much exercise do u recommend a day?
Doctor :   Before proceeding, I shall give you the link of our Psychiatrist and Psychotherapist
User :   ok
Doctor :   who shall be very much helpful
Doctor :   WWW.WWWW.WW Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Now coming to your question on exercise
Doctor :   it is ideal if you can do a good aerobic activity for 30 minutes per day
Doctor :   atleast 5 days per week
