    Hello everyone,

    I am going straight to the point.

    --> I was an addict to PMO for the past 7 years (PMOing more than 2 times a day) and I would do daily binge PMO in the last 3 years but the first 3 years were PMO every day or the other once or twice.

    --> Before starting NoFap I was a healthy guy with no physical problems visible.

    --> Started PMO 3-4 months back and followed only Reddit for it and so I am new to this forum, but the first streak of 38 days went very well with common withdrawal symptoms anxiety, palpitations, etc. but after a month of binge PMO relapse started new streak 70 days back.

    --> This happened in the following stages:

    --> Went good at first 15 days with heavy anxiety, some palpitations, etc.

    --> Started walking an hour daily, studying a lot, eliminated all junk food, drink lots of water.

    --> now comes to some symptoms, I didn't have my whole life.

    --> Starting with stomach bloating and feeling like inflammation in the near naval area that comes and goes and intensifies and eases.

    --> I didn't MOed in the last 70 days but on 63rd day I had a wet dream and since then urges were way too high. 66th day watched some erotic pics for 45 mins and 45 mins for extreme torture porn pics which I was used to watching earlier. Still not an issue.

    --> The main problem occurred yesterday, I lost control on myself and found that I installed VPN to unblock all websites I used to watch and watched most extreme porn content (won't name due to trigger issues) available there for straight 1.5 hours with 1.5 hours of soft content like the actress, their images, etc.

    --> After an hour or so after watching porn and not even touching myself, I suddenly had a pain in the lower right abdomen which was slightly there from the past 6-7 days, the pain radiated to the right testicle. I gotta worried and googled and found various medical conditions like torsion, infections, read Reddit posts about the same.

    --> It was night time but I slept somehow with that fear in my mind. Today after waking up, I didn't experience the pain in testicle but after 2 hours or so, slight pain is appearing and disappears frequently for max 5 minutes. I am a lot worried that is this a medical condition or blue balls?

    --> Any help or experience related suggestion is welcome.

    --> The pain is not very intense but radiates from the right testicle to the lower right abdomen.

    TL;DR;

    I was a daily binge PMOer who started NoFap 3 months back and in the longest streak of 70 days, yesterday watched porn for 2 hours but didn't MOed and now have pain radiating from the right testicle to lower right abdomen. In this streak earlier I had some alternating intensities lower right abdomen pain too. Please help.

    I don't think it's. A problem bro. I had pain a similiar experience once but it did not last long. It will go away in a single day . If not you can visit the doctor.

    Okay but it is not like that unbearable pain but pain is inevitable somehow.
    Thanks for suggestion. Looking for someone who did experienced it.
    Why it just happened after watching porn because I think medical conditions should not occur like this.
    @nik_gws, thanks a lot.

    I am not a doctor so I will just talk about my personal experience, to me it seems more worrying what you did than the pain, if it's bearable it is a pain that many of us experienced when we did too much of it, you just need to let your body adapts to your new habit.
    As said this is more worrying to me because it means that you don't understood the main goal in here, the worst enemy for us is porn, so it is a issue. It's wrong to watch erotic pics while you're on a streak, it can ruins the reboot process. So hold on, and avoid the porn more than anything

    I agree with all of your points but the main point here is that the pain is bearable but I cannot seem to avoid it.

    I am confused as people say if it's blue balls then ejaculate if its something else then don't.

    I just want to know did it happened to anyone else out there.

    By the way huge thanks for reaching out and putting sugetions and experiences.

    No sorry for that, the only thing I was worry was that on googling it showed up medical issues and the slight pain is only in my right testicle.

    Thanks for your comments, I think I must wait and if gets worse, then I would have to go to a checkup.

    Man , if you get an erection and you don't orgasm it's UNAVOIDABLE that you experience that type of pain.
    I had and have blue balls too.

    To relieve the pain you can : masturbate and orgasm or try to do some sport as weight lifting or keep the testicles near a cold source like ice

    It's physiologic , the body after an erection should to orgasm...
    if this not happens the pain that you feel is due to epididimal hypertension , vascular congestion that struggling to be removed

    So what should I do now and can blue balls affect only one testicle.

    One reason that eases my doubts is that I have been a daily binge PMO person for more than half decade and my body is used to produce a lot of sperm and I suddenly stopped it for 70 days with only one wet dream and I viewed the most extreme porn available on internet and got pain.

    So I think its due to blue balls and other side my mind think it could be something else.

    That's all the cause of worry.

    Thanks for sharing your valuable experiences and opinions.

    I am happy to receive suggestions from all of you guys.

    1. We aren't doctors, so if you have any worry that it's medical, see a doctor!
    2. Now that you know what porn can do to you, is this finally your motivation to stop doing it?
    That depends on what's making the erection. If you just get an erection because your body is just doing its thing (e.g. morning wood), in my experience, there's no pain at all. But if you get an erection due to porn, erotic thoughts, playing, edging, etc., then yes, expect pain.

    @Mordobarn @palindromo @fg4795 @nik_gws, I am sorry for posting late here. You guys told right that I should wait and I am okay right now. It was just blue balls, I can say so because 2-3 days after posting this thread I had a whole-blown PMO relapse, and the pain went away and its been more than 3-4 weeks I am posting again and thanks god I am not facing the same issue. I was worried because that was the first time I experienced blue balls and that was due to over-exciting myself for a prolonged time without ejaculating on a long streak.

    Thanks again, guys!!!. Hope all of you are also doing well.
     
  12. Good, I'm glad that it's fixed.
    This is one good reason why you don't want to use porn!

    Getting excited is what is supposed to come before having sex.
    Getting excited from porn is unnatural and leads to blue balls if you don't masturbate.

    I see that you are meeting your own goals. May I suggest that you try doing a hard reboot? The most important thing of all is to avoid all porn, including porn subs. If 90 days is too much for you, do just one day… then another… and another… If you do this every day for three months, you will reach 90 days and be proud of your success!

    Hey, your tips are very encouraging to try and live a better no PMO streak.

    Thanks for understanding and sharing valuable experiences.

    This is the best forum I have seen in my whole life.

    @Mordobarn @palindromo @fg4795 @nik_gws @|DEKU| @TantusJulius @Dagger323 @Dave G 123 @Beamer, update for people who helped me or whom I found sharing similar experiences to mine on the forum, and some suggestions and experience sharing would be very valuable to me. The day I posted this thread, the next day and still after a month I was having full-blown PMO relapses and sometimes up to 4 times a day with sometimes a gap of 3-5 days in between. But an average of one month was approx 1+ relapses a day.

    You can read above about my addiction intensity.

    My new streak started from yesterday and I am experiencing a very slight tightness in testicles with slight pain in the right testicle only if I notice or my posture is incorrect. I described in my first message on this thread that in my longest streak how fantasizing a lot got my pain in testicles which released on relapse and now after month-long binging on my current streak of one day today I saw a movie poster and fantasized and I am also having P dreams and as that day I believe its erection and more blood flowing through testicles or more semen that's causing slight pain and but why majorly on the right testicle.

    is it that whole my life I masturbated using right hand using weird positions so is it muscle imbalance. Thanks god that it isn't something serious bcz what I read on net is that if there's something wrong with your testicles than the pain is very severe but mine before on that day and today is very slight and not noticeable if I dont focus.

    Maybe that my body is taking time after binging long sessions of edging relapses

    just want all of yours experiences of the same and valuable suggestions.

    I also tried cremasteric reflex (google it) on previous occasion and it worked fine and will try today also and let u know

    As always I can't talk as a professional but I can give you my experience with that kind of pain.
    In first days I experienced a lot, in a particulare after bad relapses with binging, I believe that it is cause by our habits, I mean the body in the testicle is used to produce the amount X because you fap a lot, then you stop so the X is too much and it causes you pain.
    I believe this because now, at the third big streak I didn't suffer much from this so it's like my body adapted

  16. From what people say on this forum, and it's certainly my personal experience, that if you refrain from all porn including porn substitutes (e.g. fantasising), the pain will fade pretty quickly. In my case it took just a couple of days, although during my hard reboot, it returned a few times.

    Yes, the pain is not noticeable right now and it's only noticeable if I fantasize.

    Also as he said that I binged a lot so the body was producing a lot and I stopped so it's still producing and that extra is causing the pain.


    Thanks to both of you @Mordobarn and @fg4795. You both are really very helpful and thanks to you, brothers that I am fighting the demon urges from the past 2 days that still says to me "Let's PMO one more time". It's like I was being enslaved by this and I will get out of this by the support of you guys.

    I also want your permission to ask you for further queries if I require assistance in my journey to recovery.


    Thanks and Regards,
    @iwillwinthese
