Pain from excessive excitement

Often a person feels sharp pain in the testicles after excitement, sometimes reaching the scrotum. This doesn’t always mean something horrible - the reasons can be completely harmless. Prolonged abstinence or prolonged agitation often causes discomfort. For complete reassurance, it is better to consult a doctor at the first signs. Well, in this article, you can learn what a problem is in general, why it manifests itself, and how to deal with it yourself.

What is this problem

We feel sexually aroused because our bodies respond to external stimuli. Such a feeling is tantamount to a stressful state: a person begins to breathe more often, his heart rate increases, blood vessels and pupils dilate, blood pressure rises sharply, muscles tense, and behavior changes completely.

The main sign of a man’s sexual arousal is an erection. It occurs due to irritation of nerve impulses in the lumbar spinal cord. Under their influence, the bulbocavernosus muscle strengthens. This is when the pituitary gland begins to produce testosterone intensively, under the influence of which blood flows abundantly into the cave bodies. As a result of these processes, the penis swells and grows. When the corpora cavernosa is filled with a large amount of blood, the venous blood vessels begin to compress, which leads to stagnation and erection of the blood.

Every process in the body returns to normal after ejaculation. The outflow of venous blood is completely restored, the bulbocavernosus muscle relaxes. But ejaculation may not occur, but the erection will remain. However, the pressure in the testes and cavernous bodies does not decrease. This is how the male problem manifests itself, in which the testicles and lower abdomen hurt due to excessive arousal.

Pain in the testicles in a person after arousal


Sperm and the hormone testosterone are formed in the testes. These affect the appearance of the man, the ability to conceive a child. If the testicles hurt after excitement, the cause should be determined immediately and then addressed.

This should be done after seeing a doctor. The andrologist palpates the external organs of the reproductive system. If everything is normal, then both testicles - oval, flexible, flexible - are in the scrotum, they don’t hurt when you touch them. Also under normal circumstances, the man does not feel pain in the groin, penis, testicles and lower abdomen during sex. The sperm can be milky white, transparent or grayish in color, liquid and have a natural scent. The healthy state of the reproductive system is also indicated by stable erectile function, normal potency, physical and psychological skills for sex.

If a person's condition deviates from the standard, the doctor prescribes devices and laboratory tests to identify the causes and quickly rule out any pathologies. There can be three reasons - age-related changes, psychological barriers, pathology.

Age characteristics

Immediate ejaculation, excitatory testicular pain, is most common in young people and is caused by an unstable hormonal system. When a teenager starts puberty, testosterone levels jump too often, causing the blood flow to the corpora cavernosa to increase. When testosterone suddenly drops and blood remains in the penis, sexual excessive arousal occurs.

Psychological limitations

Mature men are caught up in psychological problems. An overly active lifestyle, regular overload, stress, family and work problems occupy every thought of a man, even during intimacy. Constant obsession with problems changes the way the brain works, disrupting the formation and transmission of nerve impulses responsible for erections and ejaculation. Because of this, there is rapid ejaculation.

Adolescents may also have psychological problems that affect sexual dysfunction. A little experience, excessive excitement before the first sex leads to rapid ejaculation.

Excitement can also cause pain in the testicles due to prolonged abstinence, lack of regular sexual contact, desire for a partner, and a desire to please. You can do it quickly due to heavy physical exertion, exhausting work.

Abnormal processes

We learned two reasons why testicles hurt due to excessive arousal - fairly easy and quick to get rid of, harmless. What cannot be said about pathological changes in the body. Their reasons are:

  • inflammation of the prostate (inflammation of the prostate);
  • hormonal imbalance;
  • varicocele;
  • genital trauma;
  • spinal cord injury;
  • diseases of the urinary system (cystitis, urethritis, renal failure);
  • pituitary tumor;
  • pathology of the nervous system;
  • intervertebral hernia;
  • vesiculitis.


Men's sexual arousal can be felt with pain and discomfort:

  • penis;
  • the lower abdomen (more like a pull);
  • the headrest;
  • scrotum (with feeling of heaviness and skin rash).

Mild nausea and dizziness may occur due to loss of blood supply to the body. Prolonged sexual abstinence is usually accompanied by a state of depression, depressed mood, and rapid fatigue.

In case of persistent abstinence, frequent erections, lack of ejaculation, a serious clinical picture develops:

  • Burning and sharp pain occurs when the testicles are touched, moving down the abdomen to the small pelvis.
  • Seals are found by careful palpation of the scrotum.
  • The size of the testicles is not stable, there is a pronounced asymmetry.
  • Sharp pain in the groin area, increasing while walking and exercising.

Pain from excessive arousal should never be tolerated as it interferes with sperm synthesis and testosterone production. The hormonal balance is disturbed, there are problems with erection, reproductive function - impotence and infertility gradually develop.

Why is there pain in case of excessive excitement?

In men with abstinence, testicular pain can be short- and long-term, as well as of varying intensity. This is mostly a natural physiological process. During sexual stimulation of the male spinal cord, the nerve endings responsible for the erectile function of the body become irritated. In this regard, the hormone testosterone enters the bloodstream intensively and the blood vessels dilate. Abundance of blood leads to rapid filling of the penis corpora cavernosa, dilates and grows.

If a man has no sex for a long time in his life, the veins in the small pelvis thicken, less flexible. Along with high blood flow, excitement affecting the membrane of the testes results in pain syndrome. It usually goes away a few hours after sexual intercourse.

Testicular pain when excited can come from too much sperm. In the human body, fluid exchange must work constantly: sperm and fecal fluids must be constantly excreted from the body. Otherwise, the male’s secret will press his head against the wall of the testicles, causing the scrotum to ache and tingling in the abdomen.

The teenager’s body responds to strong arousal by causing wet dreams. Involuntary ejaculation at night is common in young men aged 14 to 18 years. The mature male body struggles with premature ejaculation with intense excitement.

What can lead to strong excessive excitement

Problems with blood circulation and the timely extraction of sperm with frequent erections cause stagnation in the small pelvis, which leads to inflammatory processes. Excessive arousal in a man can cause the following problems:

  • inflammation of the prostate (inflammation of the prostate);
  • BPH;
  • primary and secondary infertility;
  • hormonal disorders;
  • urethritis;
  • varicocele;
  • violation of the erectile function of the body;
  • premature ejaculation;
  • prolonged depression.
Excessive male excitement can lead to erectile dysfunction and depression

What to do in case of excessive excitement?

Prolonged excessive arousal, which ends in sexual intercourse, goes away - testicular pain with abstinence lasts for up to 3-4 hours. If the pain persists, you should definitely consult a urologist, andrologist, or sexologist. Timely diagnosis will immediately reveal the causes of the disease and the doctor will be able to prescribe the right treatment.

If ejaculation occurs too quickly due to persistent abstinence, the situation is saved by sexual contact or complacency. If the problems are related to emotions, you should consult a psychologist or sexologist. They will tell you how to break away from everyday problems and stay in the moment to enjoy sex.

When making a diagnosis, it is important to find out if the man has any pathological problems. To do this, the urologist-andrologist has a conversation where he learns about the symptoms of the disease. The palpation of the penis and pelvic organs, as well as the scrotum, is then examined. A more detailed picture is given by ultrasound examination of the organs of the male reproductive system.

During abstinence, pain may occur due to internal inflammation of the organs. General and bacteriological analysis of blood and urine is performed to rule out inflammatory diseases. They will identify the source of the disease, show its resistance to antibacterial treatment. If additional symptoms occur, a man should have an additional test:

  • Analysis of urine;
  • CT, MRI or pelvic X-ray
  • blood tests for hormones;
  • selective urography using contrast fluid.

Treatment is prescribed after the problem has been identified and diagnosed.

Drug treatment

Why do testicles hurt a person after excitement? This is often due to disruption of the work of the male endocrine glands. Hormone therapy is then prescribed to restore testosterone levels. Intramuscular and intravenous therapeutic anesthetics are prescribed to increase the duration of intercourse. It is important to do them during an erection, they have a cooling effect on the body. Sometimes antidepressant pills are prescribed with them - for more complete treatment.

Complex treatment can alleviate inflammation in the male genitourinary system. Contains antibacterial and antiviral drugs, antispasmodics and analgesics, antipyretics and immunomodulators.

Home remedies

You alone can cope with excessive agitation - using traditional medicine methods or changing your lifestyle. The problem can go away as soon as you stop your usual habits, normalize your diet and sleep, and increase your physical activity. You can speed up the recovery process with traditional medicine. They usually improve blood circulation in the small pelvis, relieve pain, swelling, increase immunity, relax the body and normalize the emotional state.

Pain in the testicles of aroused men can be relieved with a decoction of the womb, watch leaves and rosehips. Such a decoction calms the nervous system, restores the body's defenses and enriches it with minerals and vitamins. Classes are good for depression, so they quickly prolong sexual intercourse. To make the tincture, you will need 1 tablespoon of rosehips, watch and mother sugar. Mix well and pour boiling water, then leave on low heat for half an hour. Drink 50 ml 2-3 times daily before meals.

The tincture of mint, uterus and oregano has anesthetic, anti-inflammatory, soothing, diuretic and tonic effects. Improves blood circulation, which enhances erection. To prepare the tincture, mix 5 g of each plant and pour 1 liter of boiling water. Screw the container well into the infusion and allow to warm for 20 minutes, then filter well. Take 200-250 ml in the morning and evening for two weeks.

If the testicles hurt after excitement, the tincture of rosehip, rape and angelica is no less useful. It contains a number of minerals and vitamins that are beneficial to the health of the male reproductive system. Rape normalizes the reproductive system, fights impotence, infertility, inflammation of the prostate and other diseases of the urogenital system. Rosehip strengthens the immune system, improves kidney function, relieves inflammation. Angelica soothes, tones and strengthens the body. Cooking does not take an hour: just mix all the herbs in equal proportions, pour 20 g of the resulting mixture with a liter of boiling water. Leave the infusion for 25 minutes. Take a glass daily, gradually watering.


Excessive arousal in a man can be caused by prolonged abstinence or pathology of the body. If not treated immediately, the organs of the reproductive system may malfunction. Often this results in pain in the testicles, which makes it difficult to enjoy intercourse. These consequences can be avoided by reducing the intensity of the excitement. Ask your partner not to get caught up in the foreplay during the foreplay. In the absence of a permanent partner, do not ignore masturbation if the testicles hurt due to excessive arousal. This will help you get rid of unpleasant feelings.
