Is it completely safe to have sex after torsion of the testis?

Yes if testes fixed: Provided testes have been sutured to the scrotum to prevent further torsion episodes. You need a scrotal orchidopexy to prevent future torsion if your torsion was only manually untwisted to give immediate relief. ...Read more

Lost a testis b/c of torsion bt still my sex drive is same/more like 7 times a day and my body has never been in a better shape bt still i feel difrnt?

Prob NOT physical: This is probably a psychological/emotional reaction to the loss of this body part. (assuming there are no medical issues and you have been cleared by your physician.) most likely a short-term psychotherapeutic
intervention will help you feel better.

This is an especially important area to you. Just talking with your father may also help. ...Read more

How long to have sex after a testis biopsy?

Depends on pain: There is no contraindication to having sex -- although there are two caveats: you may have blood in the semen (ejaculate) -- but, if you don't look, you won't see it; you may have pain in the scrotum or be sensitive. I suppose if you are not too vigorous or bouncy, you should be fine. If there is a suture, you cannot get it wet until they have been removed or it has healed -- so think about that. ...Read more

My boyfriend's two testis are missing. How can missing testis will shorten his life every time he have sex please describe me about this siruation?

My boyfriend's two testis are missing. How can missing testis will shorten his life every time he have sex please describe me about this siruation?

Not exactly: Missing testes must be searched for. If they are found in the groin or abdomen, they may be moved down to the scrotum so that they can be examined by himself and his doctor for testicular cancer. The "shortening of life" can happen if a testicle gets cancer while sitting undetected in his abdomen... having lots of sex makes no difference from a "missing testicle" perspective. ...Read more

Type1 diabetic male 24 yo wen um wiz my gf um always erected but we dont have sex so no ejaculation recently i feel painful hard thing in my lt testis?

Hernia?: It could be a hernia. If the lump goes away when you lie down or you can push it in, and becomes more prominent when standing or during coughing, it is probably a hernia. Could be a primary problem with the testical as well. I would recommend seeing your primary care provider or a urologist for a consultation. Hope this helps! ...Read more

My brother found that he have a lamp in his testicle but he is not sure when I palpated it like a torsion testis but he did not feel any pain.

Must see MD: We take any lump in the testicle very seriously. In fact the lumps which are painless are very dangerous because it can be malignant . I strongly advise that you must see a urologist without delay. ...Read more

I woke up due to pain. Could this mean I have torsion of testis?

Yes it could: Might also be torsion of an appendix testis or epididymitis. However, testis torsion is an emergency, please get it checked immediately as torsion must be corrected quickly or the testicle could "die". Sometimes torsion can temporarily be corrected by twisting the testicle in a direction as if "opening a book", i.e. Outwards. Please do not delay. ...Read more

I had torsion of testis surgery 4 weeks ago, i askin so much because I am so scared. And i really want to mastrubate but i can't because I am scared.

I had torsion of testis surgery 4 weeks ago, i askin so much because I am so scared. And i really want to mastrubate but i can't because I am scared.

OK with caution: Surgery for torsion of the testis involves suture pexy of the testicle to the scrotum. In other words the free testicle that could twist is now fixed with suture to the wall of the scrotum. After 4 weeks, this bond should be approximately 70% as strong as normal tissues. Gentle masturbation is ok with a lot of lubrication. Take it slow. Listen to your body, if you have pain, stop. Nothing wild! ...Read more

I woke up due to pain in my testicles could this mean I have torsion of testis?

I woke up due to pain in my testicles could this mean I have torsion of testis?

Yes: Acute pain in the testicles can be caused by torsion at any age especially if the age is between 13 and 35 years old. Severe pain is usually the symptom and requires an emergent visit to the local emergency room to prevent loss of the testicle. It can also sometimes signify cancer, infection, or inflammation. See your physician to differentiate. ...Read more

About?: There is no crystal-ball advice on how long the postoperative recovery should be. The ongoing postoperative advice usually serves more for medico-legal demand and social/political correctness with no solidly proved value. Generally speaking, let the surgical site settle down usually within one week, then you can move along with common sense as long as being tolerable and of no undue swelling. ...Read more

Tender testis, swollen scrotal veins, aching groin & lower abdo, changes sides, never actual testis that feel pain. Dr confirmed it is not torsion?

Varicocele : It could be due to an abnormal collection of veins in the scrotum. An ultrasound should be able to tell if that is the cause. The other possibility is a hydrocele, which is a fluid filled cyst in the scrotum. A referral to a Urologist may help with the diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

Got kicked in the right testis....Momentary pain 3-4 min...Lack of cremasteric reflex on day 2 and discomfort while sitting or clossing legs..Torsion?

Orchalgia: Unlikely if the pain was "momentary" and two days have passed. If swelling and pain are significant (as it would be with torsion almost always) you should get examined immediately in an er where ultrasound is available. Exam by a urologist otherwise for other types of testicular injury. The "golden period" of detection and treatment of acute torsion is only 4-6 hours. ...Read more

Veins attached to my left testis is swollen what should i do? single,no sexual intercourse,no smoking,non alcoholic,masturbate once a week

Dilated veins: Dilated veins in the left side of the scrotum are called a varicocele and are caused by backflow of blood and poor function of valves in the veins. They are not serious except that they can cause infertility. This can be determined by a sperm analysis. If you would like to discuss this further, please ask for an inbox consult.

I had a testicular tortion surgeon 8 years ago. They took my one testis. Will I have any problem in future ?

Unilkely: Having surgery for testicular torsion does not generally cause long-term issues if it was treated in a timely fashion. If left untreated for a long period of time, one can develop autoantibodies to sperm which can cause sperm damage in the other testicle. If there is difficulty with infertility, a semen analysis is required. ...Read more

You will be fine: Varicocele will not be a problem except in few due to increased warmth may alter sperm count , if there is fertility problem then need surgery. If you had proved previous torsion on right side , need surgery on both not only on the involved side , need to be fixed to prevent future torsion and loss of testis .
