Post painful vas deferens?

Since this past summer I've been getting pains that seem to be coming from either my vas deferens or the epididymus, but I could be totally wrong.

I usually masterbate fair regularily, but I find when I don't I get pain around my bladder and in my epididymus. I'm guessing because of this combination that it has something to do with my vas deferens.

I only really noticed it when I was travelling for a week or so and hadn't masturbated in a while. It got pretty painful so that night I masturbated.The pain went away and when I got back from my travels I continued to masturbate. The problem does repeat itself when I do stop masturbating for a few days.

Also, I notice when I don't masturbate that the vas deferens seems to be larger and sensitive to the touch.

I read somewhere to expect some pain temporarily if I hadn't masturbated in a while, but I'm concerned. I'm engaged to be married and I want to make sure nothing is wrong with me. My fiance and I don't sleep together or have sex for religious reasons.

I appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks.

pain seems to have dulled today... I take it it could be related to the issues involving sexual excitement which does not result in ejaculation? any thoughts?

If you've never had sex with anyone, then you can't have an STD, and you're most unlikely to have any other cause for an infection in that region.

Now I truly hope your "religious reasons" are earnestly held. The most critical test of this is that you (both) are at least as diligent in having sex together as often as possible, and making that possible no matter what the circumstances (including pregnancy, babies, arguments etc.) as you presently are in not having sex before marriage.

Fact is, if you didn't find each other sexually exciting to this degree at this point, there really would be something wrong!

Incidentally, the epididymis and vas deferens (at least the but you can feel ) do not actually store sperm to the extent that they are emptied and change size as a result of ejaculation. Rather it is enlargement due to increased circulation when you are excited!
