All about overarousal in men

overwrought man and pain in balls

Sex is an important part of human life, especially for men who strive to always be on top. Hyperarousal is extremely rare and affects young people during puberty and disappears on its own with the development of the reproductive system. However, if premature ejaculation occurs repeatedly or not at all in an adult man, you should seek the advice of a urologist, as this indicates serious problemscan.

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 signs characteristic of stressful states. A man's breathing and heartbeat accelerate, pupils and blood vessels dilate, blood pressure rises sharply, muscles tense, behavior changes.

In 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 tightens, and the pituitary stimulates the synthesis of testosterone, which increases blood flow to the cavernous bodies. Together, the processes described contribute to the swelling and enlargement of the penis. With a significant filling of the cavernous bodies, the venous vessels are compressed, which prevents the outflow of blood and forms a "riser". So there is an erection in men.

All processes normalize after ejaculation (ejaculation) - venous outflow is restored, the bulbocavernosus muscle relaxes. However, if for various reasons there is no "discharge" and the erection persists, then the pressure in the cavernous bodies and testicles does not subside. Men get overstimulated. 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 features, 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. It is at this age that puberty occurs, so jumps in testosterone levels often occur, which leads to increased blood flow to the cavernous bodies of the penis. With a sharp decrease in the indicators of the male sex hormone, the blood remains in the penis - overarousal occurs.

Psychic Barriers

This cause of overarousal is opposed by representatives of the older half of humanity. Intense lifestyle, frequent stress, family problems occupy a man's thoughts even during foreplay or direct sexual contact. Fixation on problems entails a change in brain activity, disrupting the process of formation and transmission of nerve impulses to ensure erection and ejaculation. Against this background, premature ejaculation occurs.

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

Sexual overarousal often occurs with prolonged abstinence, the lack of a regular sex life, lust for a woman and a desire to please a partner. Often a man quickly ends after a hard day's work or excessive physical exertion.

pathological processes

Overarousal in men is not always harmless and can be caused by:

  1. Hormonal imbalance.
  2. prostatitis.
  3. Genital Trauma.
  4. Injuries to the brain and spinal cord.
  5. varicocele.
  6. Pathologies of the nervous system
  7. Diseases of the urinary system (urethritis, cystitis, kidney diseases of various etiologies).
  8. intervertebral hernia.
  9. Pituitary tumor.
  10. vesiculitis.


With sexual overarousal, a man faces discomfort and pain:

  • In the scrotum, which is accompanied by a feeling of heaviness and reddening of the skin;
  • In the lower abdomen that pulls in nature;
  • in the penis;
  • In the back of my mind.

A man may experience bouts of mild nausea and dizziness due to poor circulation. In addition, a depressed state, lack of mood and 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 with 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 area and lower abdomen.
  2. When probing the scrotum, seals of different sizes and textures can be detected.
  3. The size of the testicles changes, their asymmetry is possible.
  4. Groin pain that 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 disrupted. As a result, the hormonal balance is disturbed, which can lead to erection problems and a reduction in reproductive function - a man can become impotent or face infertility problems.

Why do testicles hurt when overexcited?

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

Pain in the scrotum in men is a natural physiological process. With sexual arousal in men, there is irritation of the nerve endings in the head and lumbar spine responsible for erection. As a result of such processes, the flow of testosterone into 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 enlargement.

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 penetrates with excitement and presses on the testicular membrane, leads to a pain syndrome, which, as a rule, disappears after a few hoursafter intercourse with ejaculation.

Another reason the testicles hurt is a significant 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 seminal vesicles must leave the body. Otherwise, the male secret will put pressure on the walls of the testicles, causing pain in the scrotum, which often extends to the lower abdomen.

During puberty, 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 sleep. At a more mature age, the male body tries to cope with the over-arousal of premature ejaculation.

What threatens excessive excitement?

Secretion stagnation, circulatory disorders with frequent erections without ejaculation lead to stagnation in the small pelvis and thus to an increased risk of inflammatory processes. Against this background, the consequences of overarousal in men can be as follows:

  • erectile dysfunction;
  • hormonal imbalance;
  • prostatitis;
  • BPH;
  • premature ejaculation;
  • varicocele;
  • primary infertility;
  • secondary infertility;
  • urethritis;
  • Depression.

What to do if you are overexcited?

After a long period of overarousal, sexual intercourse brings relief - pain in the groin disappears within 3-4 hours. If this does not happen, the man should seek the advice of a specialist doctor. The fight against hyperarousal begins with diagnosing the root cause of a thorny 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 need to talk to a sexologist and a psychologist who will teach you how to switch off from everyday problems and how to manage your body and emotions.

To look for pathological problems, the urologist-andrologist conducts a conversation with a man and finds out what symptoms accompany hyperarousal. After palpation of the scrotum and pelvic organs, examine the penis. To get an accurate picture, an ultrasound scan of the male genital organs is required. If inflammatory diseases are suspected, a general and bacteriological analysis of urine and blood is required 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:

  • analysis of urine;
  • blood test to examine hormone levels;
  • X-ray of the pelvic organs, CT or MRI;
  • Excretory urography is a computer diagnostic procedure that is carried out after administration of a contrast medium.

After the problem is identified and a diagnosis is made, the man is prescribed appropriate treatment.

Medical treatment

With a dysfunction of the endocrine glands, a man is prescribed hormone therapy that normalizes the level of testosterone. To prolong sexual intercourse, anesthetic injections are prescribed. Injections have a cooling effect and are performed directly during an erection. For complex treatment, antidepressant tablets are used.

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

home remedies

At home, you can get rid of overarousal with the help of traditional medicine, as well as lifestyle changes. Sometimes it is enough for a man to give up bad habits, increase physical activity, eat right and sleep 8 or more hours a day.
