Warm testicles, tight painful scrotum and zinc: Just an observation.
I have read quite a bit on testicular health being an avid weight lifter. Having warm testicles causes them not to produce healthy sperm like they should. Testosterone production, the key hormone to bodybuilding, therefore must be impacted as well (in one way or another). I found it interesting that people use to heat their testicles as a from of contraception. Without citing references, I am pretty sure that testicles, when not at their optimum temperature (i.e. being very warm), cannot produce the maximum amount of testosterone that they are capable of (or maintain a proper hormonal equilibrium). I have tried icing my testicles before a gym session and it is effective. I have lifted some personal records by icing my testicles before lifting.
For as long as I can remember, my testicles have always been “hot”. I have always believed having warm testicles is not a good sign. Along with having very warm testicles, my scrotum has always been very tight to the point that it causes me discomfort. Performing scrotum stretches has never alleviated the problem. The pain caused by having a tight scrotum has always been very distracting, especially around friends, family, and out socializing around town. It has often caused me to be irritable and reclusive; not the person I really am, which has always depressed me.
I believe that I have discovered the “magic bullet” to my problem, after so many years of supplementing my diet with multivitamins, minerals, and herbs. Having taken so many supplements in the past it never occurred to me that I may need to take extra anything. I figured that if I took supplements which covered everything (including a pretty respectable diet), then having a tight scrotum and warm testicles was due to some other problem. I blamed having a tight scrotum and warm testicles on everything from genetics to alcohol to the Universe just out to get me.
Two weeks ago I was at the local Rite Aid. There was a sale on supplements. For whatever reason (probably from reading threads here at Thunder’s causing a subliminal response), I decided to buy a zinc supplement (buy one get one free!). When I got home I took 1 (one) pill (30 milligrams). Over the past two weeks I have been taking 1 to two of these pills a day. It was not until a few hours ago that I realized for the past week and a half my tight scrotum and warm testicle problem was gone. I remember over the past couple of days reaching into my pants and feeling my testicles to be pleasantly surprised that not only they aren’t hot, but my scrotum “feels like it should’, soft and relaxed.
I just reached into my pants, and although I didn’t pinch myself, I know that I am not dreaming. I am finding It hard to believe myself but it seems to be true; I found the “magic bullet” and it’s zinc.
If you experience the same problem I did and want to try to do something about it I encourage you to try zinc. It worked for me; it may very well work for you. I was so pleased tonight at the results I felt compelled to share it with the community here at Thunder’s Place. If this thread manages to reach, and help one person, I would like to hear about it.
Now if only magnesium or some other supplement can cause massive gains in penis size…:)
Godspeed to all of you; creating the best version of yourself.
