Help! My husband is hurting in his testicle.

He thought it was because we haven't had sex in a couple of days. We've done it and it hurts worse. He says that it is swelled. What could this be?

  • Go to the doctor. It could be serious.

  • I would go see a doctor. I don't mean to scare you or anything, but it COULD be something serious, and you're definitely better safe than sorry.

  • Sounds like epididymitis. This has happened to my fiance twice in his life time. He does need to see the doctor about this, it does not go away on it's own generally.

  • Does he excersize? Mine was freaking out and it turned out he was irritated from running and bike riding.

  • My Dh had similar issues, we took him to the Dr and found out his kidney was trying to pass itself... Take him to the Dr!

  • Actually rkoloms, I thought that line was BS till my fiance got epididymitis. There is some truth behind the "blue balls" concept and epididymitis is it! His doctor actually told me that it is very similar to a UTI (which it pretty much is and can be caused by one) and that just like not emptying your bladder regularly can up your chances of getting an UTI, so can not being "regular" in the bedroom (or by yourself).
