From the mailbag…
I have a small scrotum and my balls don’t hang very low from my body.
I’m overweight, so I have more fat around my sack than when I was younger, but there’s also been a tightening that I can actually feel.
Any suggestions on how to deal with a tight scrotum?
I think you may have misdiagnosed your problem, and here’s why…
Excess weight can drastically reduce sperm counts…and obesity can actually cause outright sterility in men.
Because your testicles always suffer when body fat takes over, because fat mass is a breeding ground for estrogen…and excess estrogen pushes your T levels down.
And your testicles will Always suffer in this environment because testosterone is the food that your balls eat…for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Small Scrotum or Small Testicles?
Danish scientists touched on this recently, when they examined the semen of heavy and normal weight individuals.
And they discovered that men with body mass indexes over 25 produced 22 percent less semen…and had sperm counts that were 24 percent lower than the normal weight individuals.
These are very large numbers…and the trend continued to go up.
Because men with body mass indexes over 30, which is the cutoff point for obesity, had sperm parameters that were even worse.
This problem is driven by the fact that heavy men produce fewer steroid hormones…and way more estrogen than normal weight men do.
And as mentioned, this hormone profile is not conducive to high functioning testicles.
This problem is compounded by the fact that heavy men’s tissues are more likely to be saturated with estrogen mimic’s…
Because these man-made chemicals are stored inside fat mass…so more body fat means more toxin storage.
As a matter of fact, these toxins explain why many heavy men have a really hard time losing weight and even more difficulty keeping it off…
They’ve been chemically castrated!
Insulin Resistance & Male Estrogen Dominance
Overweight men are also more likely to be insulin resistant…
And even a minor case of insulin resistance can radically disrupt your androgen-to-estrogen ratios because insulin problems always lead to blood sugar problems…and body fat thrives on sugar.
Also when it’s provided with too much…
Your fat mass will continue to go up, and your estrogen levels will continue to rise. So look at your undersized scrotum issue like this.
Testosterone fuels testicle growth and semen production…while estrogen reduces testicle size AND semen volume when you have too much.
This altered estrogen profile has very likely happened inside you, which has impacted your testicle performance…as well as the size, shape and volume of your package.
And remember, small testicles have a gravity problem.
They don’t have the weight OR the volume to push the scrotum down and away from the body in normal fashion.
And you can stretch your scrotum until the cows come home…but the results will be not be satisfying, because your issue is not a small scrotum
It’s the weight, size and mass of your testicles…
Your balls are fighting a battle with estrogen they will Never win until muscle mass – fueled by testosterone..replaces the body fat and estrogen that has taken over your system.
The good news is, this problem will be gone the instant you lose the excess weight.
