Brief Answer:
All the problems are due to anxiety.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for your query,

Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have been indulging in masturbation since many years and now facing problems related to sexual activities. You have a doubt about the size of the testicles being reduced to half.

First of all there is myth in a mind of common man that excessive masturbation is the reason of all sexual problems. But I would like to state that it has been discussed in scientific forums all over the world and proved scientifically that masturbation does not have any negative effect on any organ or system in the body. All the problems that you are facing now are mind related and due to anxiety.

Following measure will help you to boost up your confidence and to improve your general health and sexual potency.
1) Practice regular exercise for 45 minutes followed by meditation for 1/2 an hour in the morning.
2) Take high protein diet rich in vegetables and fruits and Vitamin A, C, D, E and Zinc
3)Take anti oxidants like Almonds 5-6 everyday.
4) Avoid alcohol and smoking.

Though it is harmless, excessive and frequent habitual masturbation does affect quality of erection and delays ejaculation.Please try to reduce the frequency of masturbation by keeping yourself busy in activities like sports,reading ,social work etc so that you will not get free time to masturbate.

As regards pain in testicles you can take pain killers like Diclofenac twice daily for 5 days.

Hope I have answered your query, please feel free to ask if you have more questions ,
I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.

Im not trying to undermine your evaluation but i indulged in an hour long game of badminton today and the pain was excruciating at the end of it, and i am 110% certain that my testicles have shrunk and i dont want to ignore the pain because it is telling me something is wrong, i will stop masturbating for life now however. Are you certain that it is in the mind? and will it heal over time if i stop masturbating?

Brief Answer:
very likely to be in the mind

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for follow up.

The pain in testicles after playing could be due to trivial trauma while playing or mild infection of Epididymis. This.This can be cured with anti inflammatory drugs like Diclofenac twice daily for a week .
As regards size of the testicles being reduced (which is unlikely), it is to be confirmed by doing Ultrasound scanning of scrotum.

Thanks and Regards.

I had 2 twisted intestine surgeries-removed ascending colon and top part going across, secum and part of small intestine. Is it possible now that my body is not able to absorb vitamins, minerals and healthy foods I'm eating? I have had 3 neck surgeries where the bones involved are not healing and I wonder if this is a reason why. I take 3,ooo IU's of vitamin D and eat a diet rich in calcium.I rarely eat meat but I do eat some salmon and chicken, and take fiber daily. I'm 59 , weigh 125, 4 ft 5 1/2 in, am relatively healthy besides this-take daily meds for migraines, have IBS(constipation) scoliosis so I walk for exercise, and have fibromyalgia which is under control.

Hi sir, I don’t want to bother u with details, I just want o share my illness, I am 18 now and I am a victim of the guillian burr syndrome or GBS, when I was 12, as I turned 15 it strucked again, the doctors in my country aren’t specialized enough and I cant afford for an abroad treatment, in visits the neuro doctor gave me some pills which contains, vitamin A, B1, B6, B12, and Zinc. However I don’t feel well, some time, and a constant fear runs in my mind is being sick another time, which can really hamper my studies and my personal life. Though I look fine but I really don’t know what to do. I am 92 kgs of weight, and sometime I have muscle aches, and other kinds of muscular illness, I masturbate a lot which I think that refers to my back pain. Apart from that and all these sir what can I do to prevent this life threatening illness to show up again.

I am a healthy guy and have been using many natural dht blockers and regrowth vitamins but with no results. I really don't want to begin using rogaine but I will if I have to. I would like your opinion about this regimen including rogaine: saw palmetto, biotin, vitamin a, b, and c, iron, ds laboratories revita shampoo, b complex conditioner, and rogaine foam?
