Testacular & penis shrinking

Im 23 years old and I'm kinda oblivious about alot of things so I naturally rely on my mother for certain things, so go easy on me. A week ago I  notice a gradual but signifigant decrease in size in both my penis and testicles, i cant even get an erection and i think I'm impotent. My penis feel lifeless with a lack of sensitivity .My mon and I went to the hospital to see if they could help but they merrily examined me and recommended us to a specialist(ureologist) three days later we finally went but I didnt get a complete diagnosis because he needed blood work and an ultra-sound which the hospital could of provided.He did say it might be my testosterone level but he needed my blood work so we left with no result. My mothers went to her boyfriend house this weekend and I'm sure she may stay there a few days while I'm sitting home with this problem. It's completely stressing me out to the point of me losing hope. I'm not suicidal but this is giving me absolute grief. Luckily, being near my older brother does relieve some of my emotional stress. I know I have to to get an ultra-sound and blood work but without knowing much about Medicare( which my mom knows) I'm pretty much at a loss. I need to know, will my my penis/scrotum/testicles continue to shrink while I wait ? I Don't know what to do, please advise!?

Hi Fate, This could be low testosterone, but tests will back this up, so get out of the house get to a gym do some weight lifting, by doing this its a natural way to get your testosterone back up, if you dont wont to lift weights try the caveman system for better health, another way to get your testosterone back up, get out do some walking and swimming, all good for you, get off any fast foods and junk foods, these will kill your testosterone, its the high sugars and salt, kills testosterone and not forgetting the alcohol another killer, till you can get back on track seeing your uro, give them a try may help clear your head.
Good Luck

Thanks you responding, I feel a little better knowing that. A year and a half ago I was physically active, mostly roller blading occasionally, and occasionally going to the gym at the YMCA, but after a couple of weeks I got lazy. I stay in bed for almost a month and a half, rarely getting up to eat, rarely active, and eating a few junk food most of the time. I may not know how to cook but,  After what you've told me I'm going to try a healthy diet . I won't be able to see my doctor until next week I'm going to stay as calm as possible, but the main question I want to ask is, my penis has gotten to a almost-child sized placid state and I think it will decrease as the days pass, will I be able to reverse the process?

Hi Fate, Well now is the time to put yourself right, this could be the cause of just laying around, and just eating junk foods and fast foods, so now is the time to put things right, if you can, but you need to be positive about what you now want to do, get back on track, but this will need to take a big change of life style from you, now with a bit of luck and healthy eating you may get you size back, if you google pegym, and on there in the beginners page look for jelqing and streaching, this should help get your penis size back, and the rest should fall in place.
But in the mean time get your self a good cook book for people living on there own, ie meals for one, try looking for Delia Smith, she done a very good one, see how you get on, so start getting up early, get out walking, brisk is best, get back in the gym, get some weights moving.
Do a penis measure of yourself, and see if you start growing back.
Good Luck

several after perfuming jelqing, I believe it is call, using lotion as a harmless experiment with the intention to stimulate blood circulation I'm afraid that I might have damaged something. Thought i have a slight increase in girth and length mu intention was simplely supposed to bare minimal and safe results. Will this affect my recovery using hormone therapy?

Hi Fate, what was it you used, your only to use oil as a lubricant, baby oil would have done, or olive oil as a stand by, the thing to do is just leave it alone, give it 24 hours, then it should just go back on its own, or perhaps what you have used has done it some good, if as you say was hormone based, did you do the warm up first?

I'm concerned, my testicles has shrunk to the size of grapes-baby like. I have visited numerous forums concerning my predicament and learned that testacular shrinkage of this magnitude could lead to infertility or worst case scenario, have theme removed. Worse more, shrinking is not reversible! Atleast with testostorone, restoring penis size is possible but can somethin fix the testicle!?

Nope , I don't smoke, drink, or take steroids, I'm as clean as a whistle. after reshearching the net I believe  my condition may be a result of over -maturation. I seem to display almost all the symptoms but until I get an ultra-sound I can't make an accurate assumption.

Hi Fate Your now saying over masturbation could be your problem, just how much were you doing it a day, and have you now stopped now, over mastur bation is a big problem, and if you as you said spent a year just being in bed, then you were either reading or playing on a computer and watching porn, and masturbating to it, is that the truth then?

Well, according to the doctor my testosterone level is extremely low. He told me about the many factor that are the cause of my "hypergon-ism" that scared the life out of me. Hopefully, after getting my X-ray scan I can get an accurate answers to my problem.

Hi fate then if you have low t, then get out weight lifting and heavy training like the caveman workout, both of these will lift your testosterone naturaly. if you can di that at your age it would be better for you than going on drug form, your doctor should tell you that.
So dont weight get out there training.
Good Luck
