SEE 8 Things Your P*nis Can Tell You About Your Health

 

A man’s nether region should not only be judged based on how it performs in his love life but in his everyday life as well. A healthy penis is vital to ensure the entire male body is fully functioning and at optimal performance to complete daily processes. A penis’s sensitivity, size, and erection are all associated with male health in terms of what’s normal and what’s not, which may serve as an early indicator of problems in other areas.

1. Shrinkage from Too Cold or Too Hot Temperatures

Sperm production thrives in temperatures that are slightly below normal body temperatures. Men will often notice when they are cold, their penis shrinks. According to Harvard Health Publications, the blood vessels in the penis shut down because of the cold temperatures, but it will still be able to expand to its usual size once the blood flow begins. Going from slightly below normal body temperature to an increase by even two, three, or four degrees, can negatively affect sperm and testosterone production. Men are advised to keep their genital area cool by avoiding tight pants and warm, moist places like hot tubs for long periods of time if they are having trouble conceiving with their wives.

2. Prostatic Congestion, or “Blue Balls” During Sexual Arousal

Men may frequently say they have “blue balls,” medically known as prostatic congestion, especially when sexual arousal is not followed by an orgasm. The testicular aching or lingering sensation of discomfort a man feels is due to the uneven blood flow that leads to an increase in the volume of blood trapped in the genital. This leaves the penis erect and the testicles engorged until the volume of blood in the genital is reduced and the penis and testicles return to their usual size, says Sexual & Reproductive Health Matters.
