All About Male Overexcitement

overexcited man and pain in the balls

Sex is an important part of human life, especially for men who strive to always look their best. Overexcitement is extremely rare and affects young people during puberty and, as the reproductive system develops, goes away on its own. However, if an adult male repeatedly experiences premature ejaculation or does not have it at all, you should seek the advice of a urologist, as this can signal serious problems.

description of the problem

Sexual arousal is a natural physiological process and the body's response to stimuli. It is characterized by the appearance of characteristic signs of stressful conditions. A man's breathing and heart rate quicken, pupils and blood vessels expand, there is a sharp increase in blood pressure, and the muscular apparatus tenses, behavior changes.

In representatives of the stronger sex, the main sign of sexual arousal is an erection. It is formed under the influence of irritating factors that create nerve impulses in the lumbar spinal cord. Under their influence, the bulbocavernosus muscle tenses, and the pituitary gland stimulates the synthesis of testosterone, which increases blood flow to the cavernous bodies. Together, the described processes contribute to the swelling and increase in size of the penis. With a large filling of the cavernous bodies, the venous vessels are compressed, which impedes the outflow of blood and forms a "riser". So there is an erection in men.

All processes are normalized after ejaculation (ejaculation) - venous outflow is restored, the bulbocavernosus muscle relaxes. However, if for various reasons the "discharge" does not occur and the erection persists, the pressure in the cavernous bodies and testicles does not decrease. The men become overexcited. As a rule, an erection without ejaculation does not lead to such a problem.


Sexual arousal in men is most often associated with age-related characteristics, psychological barriers and pathological processes of various etiologies.

Age characteristics

Rapid ejaculation, strong excitement are more common in adolescents and are associated with hormonal imbalance. At this age, puberty occurs, so there are often jumps in testosterone levels, which leads to increased blood flow to the cavernous bodies of the penis. With a sharp decrease in indicators of the male sex hormone, blood remains in the penis - overexcitement occurs.

Psychological barriers

This cause of overexcitement is encountered by representatives of the older half of humanity. Busy lifestyle, frequent stress, family problems occupy the thoughts of a man even during foreplay or direct sexual contact. Fixing on problems leads to a change in the activity of the brain, as a result of which the process of formation and transmission of nerve impulses to ensure erection and ejaculation is disturbed. Against this background, premature ejaculation occurs.

At a young age, among the psychological reasons, it is worth noting the fear of the first intimacy and inexperience, which can lead to rapid ejaculation.

Often, sexual overexcitement occurs with prolonged abstinence, the absence of a regular sex life, the desire for a woman, the desire to please a partner. Often a man quickly finishes after a hard day's work or excessive physical exertion.

Pathological processes

Overexcitement in men is not always harmless and can be due to:

  1. Hormonal imbalance.
  2. prostatitis.
  3. Genital trauma.
  4. Brain and spinal cord injuries.
  5. Varicocele.
  6. Nervous system pathologies
  7. Diseases of the urinary system (urethritis, cystitis, kidney disease of various etiologies).
  8. Intervertebral hernia.
  9. Pituitary tumour.
  10. Vesiculitis.


With sexual overexcitement, a man faces certain discomfort and pain:

  • In the scrotum, which is accompanied by a feeling of heaviness and redness of the skin;
  • In the lower abdomen, which pulls in nature;
  • In the penis;
  • At the back of the head.

A man may experience bouts of mild nausea and dizziness due to impaired circulation. In addition, a depressed state, low mood, low resistance to stress are faithful companions of the strong half of humanity with prolonged sexual abstinence.

Prolonged abstinence, frequent erections that do not end in ejaculation can lead to the development of a more severe clinical picture in men:

  1. When you touch the testicles, there is a sharp burning pain that spreads to the pelvic region and lower abdomen.
  2. When sounding the scrotum, seals of different sizes and natures can be detected.
  3. The size of the testicles changes, their asymmetry is possible.
  4. Pain in the groin, which is aggravated by walking or other physical exertion.

Pain in the scrotum is dangerous because it leads to an imbalance - the process of sperm synthesis and testosterone production is disturbed. As a result, the hormonal balance is disturbed, which can lead to erection problems and a decrease in reproductive function - a man can become impotent or face problems with infertility.

Why do testicles hurt when overexcited?

With sexual overexcitement, men are faced with an unpleasant symptom - pain in the testicles. This symptom can be long-term and short-term, and also have different intensity.

Pain in the scrotum in men is a natural physiological process. With sexual arousal in men, irritation of the nerve endings in the head and lumbar spinal cord responsible for erection occurs. As a result of such processes, the flow of testosterone in the blood increases, which leads to vasodilation. An increase in blood volume contributes to the filling of the cavernous bodies of the penis, which leads to its expansion and increase in size.

In men, with prolonged abstinence, the pelvic vessels become dense, their elasticity decreases, which, together with a large amount of blood in the cavernous bodies, which enters when excited and presses on the testicular membrane, leads toa pain syndrome that, as a rule, disappears after a few hours after sexual intercourse with ejaculation.

Another reason why the testicles hurt is a large amount of ejaculate. The male body is arranged in such a way that the sperm synthesized by the gonads and the seminal fluid produced by the prostate and the seminal vesicle must leave the body. Otherwise, the male secret puts pressure on the walls of the testicles, which leads to pain in the scrotum, often extending to the lower abdomen.

In adolescence, the body independently fights the problem of strong sexual arousal through wet dreams. Boys usually experience involuntary ejaculation between the ages of 14 and 18 during a night's rest. At a more mature age, the male body tries to cope with the excitement of premature ejaculation.

What threatens excessive excitement?

Stagnation of secretions, circulatory disorders with frequent erections without ejaculation lead to stagnation of the small pelvis, leading to an increased risk of inflammatory processes. In this context, the consequences of over-arousal in humans can be the following:

  • erectile dysfunction;
  • Hormonal imbalance;
  • prostatitis;
  • BPH;
  • premature ejaculation;
  • varicocele;
  • Primary infertility;
  • Secondary infertility;
  • Urethritis;
  • Depression.

What to do in case of overexcitement?

After a long overexcitement, sexual intercourse brings relief - the pain in the groin area disappears in 3-4 hours. If this does not happen, the man should seek the advice of a specialist. Fighting overexcitement begins with diagnosing the cause of a tricky problem.

If rapid ejaculation is the result of a man's long abstinence, natural intercourse or masturbation will help. If you have problems of an emotional nature, you should talk about them with a sex therapist and a psychologist who will teach you how to get out of everyday problems and how to manage your body and your emotions.

To search for pathological problems, the urologist-andrologist conducts a conversation with a man and finds out what symptoms accompany overexcitement. After palpation of the scrotum and pelvic organs, examination of the penis. To obtain a detailed picture, an ultrasound of the male genitals is necessary. If inflammatory diseases are suspected, it is necessary to pass a general and bacteriological analysis of urine and blood, which will help to identify the causative agent of the disease and its resistance to antibiotic therapy. If necessary, a man can also be sent for additional diagnostics:

  • Urine analysis;
  • Blood test to study the level of hormones;
  • X-ray of pelvic organs, CT or MRI;
  • Excretory urography is a computer diagnostic method performed after the administration of a contrast medium.

After identifying the problem and making a diagnosis, the man is prescribed appropriate treatment.

Medical treatment

In case of dysfunction of the endocrine glands, a man is prescribed hormone therapy, which normalizes testosterone levels. To prolong sexual intercourse, anesthetic injections are prescribed. The injections have a cooling effect and are done directly during an erection. For complex treatment, antidepressant tablets are used.

Complex therapy, which includes taking antibacterial or antiviral drugs, analgesics and antispasmodics, as well as immunomodulators and antipyretics, will help a man get rid of inflammatory diseases of the genital and urinary spheres.
