Testicles Shrinking

Testicles Shrinking

I’ve noticed my testicles have shrunk over the last 6-7 months. They have decreased by about 50%. My balls are are also hanging lower then they used to.

I’m 22, quite healthy besides some back problems. I was Vegetarian, but took up eating meat about 2 years ago, but still consider myself to be mostly vegetarian.

I have been smoking for about a year now, but the size decrease came about 6 months after I started smoking. I have googled and haven’t found any relationship between smoking and testicles decreasing in size. My partner also smokes, and he said he hasn’t noticed any decrease in his size.

The funny thing is, I’m Hornier now then I ever was.. I can sometime cum 2-3 times in a row, and getting more spontaneous erections though out the day. I put that partly down to my general state of mine, as I’m alot happier now with my partner. I used to have trouble staying hard sometimes, due to work stress, and also my lack of attraction to my ex partner.

I’m thinking of going to the doctors and talking about it, but I think the Dr would probably just say it’s natural

Anyone got any ideas? Do you think it could be the smoking?

50% really? That is a lot.

I think my balls have always been about the same size for the last 25 years. If they shrank 20% I would be worried. I don’t know of any specific medical condition that would cause it (other than steroid use), but there has to be some reason.

When you take roids your body shuts off T production because it senses sufficient quantities in the blood, and your balls shrink. T production is stimulated from Leutinizing hormone in the pituitary gland in the brain. So, maybe it would be a good idea to go have a blood test that checks free and bound T, LH, FSH, maybe even estrogen.

Yes, I do have some ideas. I would certainly go to your doctor and sooner rather than later,

Testicles shrink when the demand for testosterone is reduced. This happens when people supplement with Testosterone or other steroids, so the work load of the testicles is reduced.

Assuming that you are not supplementing with steroids, it would appear that your testosterone production is going down, rather than up.

To have an increased libido when total testerone production is declining is indicative of a problem with Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG). This leaves more of the testosterone that you have in the “Free state” which is what gives you libido.

Estradiol, which is an estrogen, is the hormone that is used in the feedback control loop for the production of testosterone. Higher Estradiol levels tell the hypothalaums to decrease production of LH in the pituitary. LH is what tells the testicles to make more testosterone. Since your testicles are shrinking dramatically, it would apprear that your estradiol levels are also declining dramatically. Being male, you do not need a lot of estrogen’s but you MUST have some.

Your trends are all going the wrong way.

There are some variables to the various situations that I have outlined, but with the conditions that you have, you do need to see a physician soon.

A first line physician may, or may not understand the endocrinology that has been presented. You may want to see an endocrinologist that works with the adrenal system.

Best of luck,



Thanks for the info.

Forgot to mention, I have blood levels checked for standard vegetarian associated things (B, Iron, Zinc, etc) I’m due for one soon, so ill go in sooner and get my testosterone levels checked.

I also get b12 injections once or twice a year. But generally my iron and zinc levels are normal.

When I was given non leather zaps of electricity my balls shrank for a few days. Talk about adding insult to injury.

Been to the dr’s hormone levels were normal, so I’m having an ultrasound done on Monday. I didn’t think it was necessary, but the dr wanted to be sure. Ill let you know how it goes.

Let us know. I’m interested to hear the results. Could it be that your nuts didn’t really shrink as much as you think?

Good luck.

I really should have over a month ago when they were at their smallest.. They have grown a bit larger this month.. Not quite at their full size though. Will let you know what the outcome of the ultrasound is.. Ill ask for a digital copy of it as well :)

Good luck from me as well.
