Hello Fapstronauts, This is my first post on NoFap so kindly forgive me if I did any mistake, So I have been doing NoFap for about 2 years now, with 1-2 relapses every month, what I want to share is my experience and research on edging, I discovered this practice of edging last year and found it to be a good alternative to ejaculation, but last month I started edging pretty much everyday, which led to some lower back pain, and a swelling just above my right testicle, I googled the symptoms, I was freaked by this, and I thought I'm done now, its either cancer or swollen veins(varicocele), but turns out it was neither of them, after quitting edging the swelling has completely gone, also no more back pain. Since, I practice Yoga and follow ayurveda(traditional Indian medicine) I researched on this topic, I came across some facts that are in ayurveda. I ayurveda there is a concept of "Vega". "Vega" can be translated as force/pressure that body produces and when we get that pressure from the body, we must act on it instantly, otherwise it will harm our own body. The most common example is the pressure to pee, if we hold on to pee for a very long time, it becomes harmful for us. same is with the pressure to ejaculate, when you stimulate yourself to the point of ejaculation, and stop it by holding the head of your penis, or someway else, it sarts harming your own body, one ayurvedic channel on youtube claimed it can even lead to hydrocele/varicocele/piles. And, in my experience yes it can, so whenever there is an urge which you cant control, it's better to ejaculate than to edge. Note that ayurveda dosen't promote ejaculation or frequent ejaculation, and it prohibits from wasting seminal fluid, and promotes semen retention, it is just that whenever you are at the point of ejaculation, at such point, you should not hold yourself back, as holding the semen back at that particular time can damage your nerves. That's it, that's a very short description of the concept of "Vega", you guys can do further research yourself, if ntrested.
