Testes don't shrink from masturbation.
You should see a urologist to put your mind at ease, or find out what is really causing the problem. Good luck with it.

The average testicle is a around 2.5" long x 1" across; give or take 20%. Are yours signficantly smaller than that?

The real question is: are your testicles soft and mushy or are they fairly firm. When you roll your testicle it should be quite firm but of course you can squeeze it a bit but you met considerable resistance fairly quickly. If they are soft and mushy then you have a hormone problem, otherwise you are normal. Behind each testicle is a softer bag that holds the mature sperm, it is soft and mushy but gets firmer as it fills with sperm or fluid when you near ejaculation; this is normal.

strider,
can you say more? When did you notice this? Was it sudden? Do they appear normal after taking a hot shower? Or is that when they look smaller? Due to the Cremaster muscle they can shrink due to environmental issues and they also react to stress. Do you normally have tight or testicles that really don't hang as low as some other men you have seen? Give us as much information as possible and perhaps one of us has had a similar problem.

Strider,
first let me say that frequent masturbation will *not* cause your testicles to shrink! If anything, the increase in sex amy actually increase the size just a bit.

The pain you had, how long did it last? What type of pain was it? Any continual pain must be examined by a doctor.

So, you seems to have more scrotal skin now than before?

Have you done a testicular self exam? You should feel for any abnormalities while in the shower.

If you go to a doctor, and I think you should if this continues to concern you, be sure to tell the doctor that your testicles use to be larger.

One final thing, and I am not saying that you are doing this but, steroid use will cause this. I am not so sure that herbal supps that raise your Testosterone will cause this but injected T will.

See a doctor and keep us informed.

go back and see whoever prescribed the Finesteride. It may be a side effect.
