Hi guys this is Dr. Larson here again. I’m going to talk to you about some of the issues that arise in practice and today’s is a very common one called blue balls that a lot of men out there have experience. The official diagnosis or terms we use in practices Epididymal Hypertension. What this arises from is, when there is either delayed ejaculation due having sex a long time or a prolonged arousal without a release.
There gets some Vasocongestion around the testicles. This is a pooling of blood and testicles. This is where the name actually comes from blue balls. The Testicles can actually take on a blue colour due to the vasocongestion itself. The treatment for this condition is actually release!
That would usually solve the pain. Another option for some people if they’re really suffering is they can do what’s called a valsalva maneuver, you try to lift something heavy and that can help reduce the blood pressure in the testicles and cause the pain to go away.
This is actually not a uniquely male problem. It can also happen to females with the same situation, prolonged arousal can lead to vasocongestion of the vulva area and cause discomfort in them as well.
