I have gained weight, my scrotum is now up close to body, and penis has kind gone in also. Is this due to weight gain?

I have gained weight, my scrotum is now up close to body, and penis has kind gone in also. Is this due to weight gain?

Possibly: A man's penis is anchored to his pubic bone. As he gains weight, the penis remains anchored while the "pannus" (excess body fat) continues to grow outward from the body hence causing the appearance of a "smaller" penis - when in fact there is no change in penis size. ...Read more

I'm sorry, I'm not: Familiar with Slender Wonder. My brief review suggests it involves supplements (maybe ok), snack bars, laxatives and injections (likely not ok), and low calorie meals (the answer). Leptin and other weight control hormones may be important; these hormonal strategies are largely still investigational. At this point, daily caloric restriction of 250+ calories with more calorie expenditure is key ...Read more

It is impossible...: It actually is impossible for a human to be unable to lose weight, because weight loss follows a fundamental law of nature. If a person takes in more calories than she needs to live on, she will gain weight. If she takes in fewer calories than she needs to live on, she will lose weight. Every human follows this natural law, so every human loses weight if she eats fewer calories than she needs. ...Read more

If low t is caused by severely stressed life and weight gain. Can short term t therapy help to lose weight, motivate and bring back the normal t levels?

Low T: Stress and weight gain may affect testosterone but not by much at your age.

I would highly recommend you see a Psychologist initially
and follow his/her advise about a primary care physician consult.

If you do indeed already have low testosterone you will need replacement for a long time. The more testosterone you take from outside the body, the less your own testes make testosterone. ...Read more
