Day three of Blue Balls... should I ejaculate?

Discussion in 'Rebooting - Porn Addiction Recovery' started by Deleted Account, Mar 2, 2017.

  1. Hi!

    I'm currently on day 11 and I'm having a hard time. I've had blue balls for three days now and it's driving me crazy! It started in the balls but now my lower abdomen hurts too. Last time I made it to day 7. The exact same thing happened. After having had blue balls for three days I got so scared that I had an epididymis infection, so I masturbated just to ejaculate to check for any symptoms, but I was fine. A couple of hours later everything had returned to normal and the pain was gone, all well :)

    Now I'm in the exact same position. It's starting to freak me out. It feels like I'm about to explode inside and I also feel super horny, like there is an orgasmic energy lying dormant in reproductive system, waiting to be unleashed haha... all at the same time. I just went to take a piss and the pee was turbid and white "foam" appeared, almost as if there had leaked semen into the bladder (just my theory). I quickly googled 'retrograde ejaculation' and now I wan't to ejaculate even more, juuust to check that everything works as it should!

    The pain come and go, I work a desk job but I try to get up and move to focus on something else. I also go to the gym each day and lift heavy. I also follow intermittent fasting.

    During the nights and dream about sex and ejaculating, though I've never had a wet dream yet (I don't think I've ever had a wet dream my entire life). I get hard a few times during the night and always wake up with rock hard morning wood.

    I don't want to give up already, 11 days is not exactly what I aimed for, but my 'self diagnosed hypochondria' kicks in... like a little devil on my shoulder it sits there and tell me all those horrible things... During the last 24 hours I've had prostatitis, prostate cancer, epididymis infection etc... the list goes on, and the son of a b*** whispers in my ear that all of those things can be fixed, by simply ejaculating...

    What should I do? I'd love to hear your advice!

    //peace

    Ice packs. Apply them outside your underwear/boxers, and leave them on for at least 5 minutes. Don't ejaculate. You know that it's just a voice, not actual reason, so keep that in mind. Redirect your thoughts whenever they start going somewhere with a planned diversion. And yeah, if you can talk to a doctor, do that. Be honest and open with him. They deal with far more embarrassing stuff than this, and it's important for the medical field to be exposed to the idea of porn and masturbation being unhealthy. Talking to a doctor will put your mind at rest, or in the unlikely event that
    there is a problem, you can get treatment.
     
  4. ...the devil won, I got too scared and ejaculated. It wasn't even pleasurable, and after I felt like crap, but the next day when I woke up the blue balls and pain in the pelvic region was gone and everything was back to normal. Stupid.

    Thanks for your advice though, I appreciate it and I'll keep it in mind next time. Do you mean seeing a doctor just to hear some comforting words from a professional medic? What do you tell them? The'll probably just tell me to ejaculate since (some very questionable) studies have shown frequent ejaculation is good for your prostate health.

    I just mean if you have real concerns about prostate cancer, etc. Sorry to hear about your setback. Take advantage of this period before the strong urges set in again, and make a game plan for the next time. Get into specifics so that you're ready.
    Good luck, man.

    If you did 13 days without a blow out, now you can go for more. Somewhere your body will realize it isn't getting the release it is fighting for and will come up with another tactic, like the dreaded flatline. Be strong. You can withstand. Now do it.
     
  8. Not necessarily, sometimes (like for me) it arise after just being horny for too long without ‘doing anything about it’. On the other hand, I must be one of those who is very sensitive to blue balls, others appear to have a very high tolerance :)

    Thanks man! I kept searching the web to see if more people had this problem, and I found this thread on reddit which sounds like an identical ‘case’ to mine. I’ll quote this thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/NoFap/comments/1dtiq7/16_days_pornfree_9_days_nofap_blue_balls_need/

    I’m definitely one of those 48 hours guys :) This is my game plan! It feels really good to read others stories, to know you’re not alone with this.

    Thanks man! First time it was 6 days, last time 11 days, it’s getting longer… this time I’ll try to man up and deal with the pain, now that I know for sure it’s blue balls and nothing else.

    It's good to know someone else is having the same trouble. I was on 4 day streak and I stupidly though I will watch porn but not masturbate. And so I did, now I'm feeling sore in one of my balls and a pain on my lower abdomen. I guess this is blue balls. I never had it since I always MO.

    Apparently exercise helps. Also like already mentioned applying an ice pack or taking a cold shower. Blue balls is basically blood flow into the testicles caused by arousal. I have a serious case of blue balls now it's really hurting me to the point where I struggle to stand straight or still for longer than 10 seconds. Just trying that mind over matter technique, patience is key.

    Unfortunately, you are going to have to face all kinds of stuff as your body adjusts to life without PMO. A lot of people do go through this and make it to the other side with a body that does not need PMO. Cold showers and exercise help. I'm not sure ice packs are a good idea; you want to touch or stimulate your private parts as little as possible.

    If it really hurts I say it's ok to masturbate. Just don't watch porn. You really shouldn't be in physical pain. Saw how long you can go before the pain starts and then ejaculate and see if you can go longer next time. That's what I would do. Don't beat yourself up for masturbating if it relieves physical pain.

    Lol. I highly doubt it actually "hurts" like physical pain. Its just the addict wanting their "fix".

    It's a real thing, with real pain. Masturbating to ejaculation may be like scratching an itch.

    an itch, isn't painful though. You just want to scratch it.
