Can hemorrhoids make your balls hurt?

Hemorrhoids are painfully uncomfortable and distressing enough. These swollen veins in the anal region can cause itching, bleeding, and agonizing pain during bowel movements. So, having them is problematic as it is. But what if we told you that they could also be a reason for testicular-ache? How does one even connect hemorrhoids with balls (testicles), both of which are poles apart anatomically? It’s bizarre!

Well, let’s understand it today – from the facts to some funnies.

What Are Hemorrhoids?

Before diving into how hemorrhoid relates to your boys’ manhood (by hurting them), let’s first learn more about these beastly buggers.

Hemorrhoids are inflamed and enlarged blood vessels around or inside the anus area. They might develop inside the rectum (internal) or outside around the anal opening (external). Now here comes an interesting fact – everybody has hemorrhoidal tissues at all times; their function is to cushion your stools while passing through your digestive tract! However, issues arise when blood starts pooling up there due to pressure buildup caused by various reasons like constipation or sitting on hard surfaces for long durations.

Some common causes of this unsuspecting terror include obesity, pregnancy (yes, pregnant men too), straining too much during bowel movements (♥ gotta love fiber!), low-fiber intake, sitting on hard surfaces/slouching instead of maintaining good posture (Are ya listening gamers?), diarrhea/constipation-related stress on stool passing process etc.

Fun Fact Alert: Hemorrhoidal Tissues

Have you ever heard somebody claim that his/her entire existence feels like someone has put something up where they shouldn’t have without wanting anything back out?!

Fun fact ✂ ✓, believe it or not but humans’ first tissues are the anal cushions or hemorrhoidal tissues, and everyone has them!

So Can Hemorrhoids Make Your Balls Hurt?

Now to come to our main concern: whether having hemorrhoids can make one feel pain in their balls? Unfortunately, it’s not an unreasonable notion.

Although the root cause is indirect-remember those pesky veins that contribute to this condition? The same anus-region-engulfing blood vessels may also constrict/shrivel/reduce blood flow of something else located close-by – the pudendal artery, responsible for both penile and testicular function.
Incidentally even though unrelated, Pudendal Neuralgia along with pelvic muscle spasm happens when there’s compression on your Pudendal nerve due to weakness/laxity/muscle tension around that region thus generating severe pain in your genitalia.

A Definite ‘Maybe’

Now coming back to throat-bobbing worries about potential ball-suffering via hemorrhoid-induced misdeeds -there isn’t any scientific evidence as such detailing specific corroboration between aucontraire but numerous individuals have reported feeling a squeezing sensation in their ball sack when taking a crap during flair-ups! They described detecting momentary discomfort akin’ (ridiculous but true) sit-on-a-pin feel before subsiding which was quite uncomfortable nevertheless. This sensibility mainly occurs because impacted stool puts pressure on internal piles whilst exiting through your rectum chamber creating mild spikes of involuntary internal sphincter contractions trying to assist further thereby making certain nerves click..click

So while you’re busy battling fierce bowel movements already putting heaps of pressure down there – contracting sphincters and engorged veins accompanied by constipating’s best friend ‘straining’, poor guys might just get caught in collateral damage risking immense discomfort resulting in testicular ache. After all, one can’t blame them even if the connection seems a bit weird.

How Can You Relieve This Pain?

With not much focus on direct buttock-adjacent-perils during hemorrhoid-flare-ups exercise considerable caution nonetheless to manage your pain points trying these #sorry guys ballsy steps:

1. Alter Your Diet To Increase Fiber Intake

Rise and shine with morning exercises increased liquid intake coupled by inclusion of foods rich in fiber sources like green vegetables (:dizzy_face: it’s time dudes) wholegrain cereal, oats, seeds and nuts – anything that results in soft bulking stools instead of those jazzed up hard forts blocking passage through your rectum may alleviate any referred ball pain from this anatomical civil war going down below.

2. Rest ‘Em Up!

Life is too short already to feel stressed about stuff we absolutely cannot control so put yourself first when it comes right down to giving your sorely laden nether regions a deserved break! Be mindful of prolonged sitting hours; avoid straining as well as wear loose clothing-not tight-fitting ones (save’em for “tacky day-managers conference office picnic” maybe?)..

We want you both feeling good out there-recovering from hemorrhoids doesn’t have to compromise your quality of life… or manhood!
