Question: Testicular retraction during orgasm...

 Hengus - Mon May 04, 2009 6:34 am

I'm an 18 year old male and when I masturbate, particularly during orgasm, one or both of my testicles retract inside my groin, completely vacating the scrotum. I'm too embarrassed to see a gp about it in case it's perfectly normal so I need to know if I should see somebody about it?

User avatar Hello,It is quite common to have retraction of testis and should be of no concern provided it returs back to the sac.Best wishes.
