What is Blue Balls?
Blue balls, known medically as epididymal hypertension (EH), is a condition that can affect people with male genitals. It’s not serious, but causes pain and aching in the testicles after having an erection without an orgasm. It’s often accompanied by a blueish hue in the testicles. Most men do not get EH frequently.
Symptoms of Blue Balls
Blue balls symptoms affect the testicles and include:
1. Pain in the testicle
2. Discomfort in the testicle.
3. Heaviness in the scrotum.
4. Aching in the testicle.
You may also have a blueish hue visible in the scrotum.
How does Blue Balls occur?
When people with male sexual organs are aroused, the blood vessels to the penis and testicles expand to allow a greater volume of blood flow. Over time, this blood causes the penis to expand and stiffen, leading to an erection. The testicles also increase in size, causing them to feel heavier.
Typically, this blood is released after orgasm or as a result of a decreased physical arousal. Too much blood may stay in the genital area of some people who become aroused for an extended period without a release or decrease of arousal. This can cause pain and discomfort. The testicles may even start to turn blue due to the excess blood and increase in blood pressure.
You are more likely to develop Blue Balls if you’re easily stimulated or aroused. Masturbation techniques that delay orgasm also increase the chances of Blue Balls.
How to treat Blue Balls.
There aren’t many established treatments for Blue Balls. The simplest and quickest remedy for blue balls is to ejaculate during an orgasm. You can achieve this through masturbation, oral sex, or protected sexual intercourse. After an orgasm, the pain will go away slowly.
Another quick remedy is to become unaroused. You can achieve this through a variety of ways, including: taking a cold shower, thinking of something nonsexual, distracting yourself with music, working or doing another activity that keeps you busy.
Exercising may also help because it can move the blood flow away from your testicles to your muscles. Applying an ice pack or other cold substance to the area may also help by constricting the blood vessels and reducing additional blood flow to the area.
