What are blue balls and why do men get it?

Health, according to the World Health Organization, is “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity”.[1] A variety of definitions have been used for different purposes over time. Health can be promoted by encouraging healthful activities, such as regular physical exercise and adequate sleep,[2] and by reducing or avoiding unhealthful activities or situations, such as smoking or excessive stress. Some factors affecting health are due to individual choices, such as whether to engage in a high-risk behavior, while others are due to structural causes, such as whether the society is arranged in a way that makes it easier or harder for people to get necessary healthcare services. Still other factors are beyond both individual and group choices, such as genetic disorders.

Not all men who speak of blue balls are delusional. Dr Niveditha Manokaran busts all the blues around about the blue ball discomfort!

Sex can be different for all genders. If your man has ever complained of ‘blue balls’ when he ain’t getting much action between the sheets, you know what we’re talking about. While women may experience the lack of sex through different psychological and physical symptoms, men can feel that too, ladies!

Dr Niveditha Manokaran, Sexual and Reproductive Health Expert, who is known to shatter taboos around sex on social media, spoke about this rather unfamiliar sex-related issue in a latest Instagram post.

The expert clarifies at the very beginning that the term doesn’t directly translate into balls or testicles that actually turn blue! But it is more of a psychological state that affects the sexual health of your partner.

“The balls do not actually turn blue no matter whether you have sex with someone or not. Blue balls is a psychological state caused when a man is aroused for an extended period of time without an orgasm,” reads an excerpt from the post.

A lot of women may believe that men complain of this condition when they are aroused but denied an orgasm. And they brush it off calling it sexual frustration. But truth be told, there are certain uncomfortable symptoms that your partner may be dealing with.

Symptoms of blue balls:

  1. Your partner may experience a dull aching pain in his man parts
  2. He may also get a feeling of fullness in the scrotum.
  3. The pain may extend to his lower abdomen and groin.

Dr Manokaran explains that this happens because of back up of fluids in the epididymis due to prolonged sexual arousal without ejaculation. While your partner is in the act, there’s a point when semen gets loaded up. If it’s not set to liberty, that’s where the whole blue ball sensation creeps in. However, this issue of blue balls – medically also known as epididymal hypertension – that many find embarrassing, may subside on its own within a few hours.

No one is to be blamed or made feel guilty, if your partner is experiencing this blue ball syndrome, adds the expert. Instead, you could try to comfort your man by telling him of ways to feel better.

4 ways your partner can relieve blue balls:

  1. The best way your partner can relieve this discomfort is by masturbating (helping himself).
  2. A cold shower can provide some instant relief.
  3. A quick workout or mild exercising can treat his discomfort.
  4. Pain killers can help your partner if only prescribed by a medical expert himself.

Leaving your partner with unresolved feelings is not the way to go about it. So ladies, believe him when he says it and cut your partner some slack!
