    Since the first week of TRT I have noticed that a lot of the time my scrotum is very tight. This is very unusual, since normally it would be very loose. Testicle size seems okay, but they are just drawn tight.

    I have been taking 250IU HCG EOD since the start. Thinking that might not be enough, I raised this to 400IU EOD for the last 2 injections, but that does not seem to make a difference yet to the tightness, so I am not sure insufficient HCG is the problem.

    Is there any other reason why TRT would cause this?

    I think this is about balance between HCG, BAT, E2.

    It is hard to get it right.

    I have times when things work, other when they do not
    and I am still on same schedule with medications.

    For me, it is best when
    balls are hard
    scrotum fluctuates between tight and relaxed through out the day,
    with few nightly erections.

    Not easy to get.

    This is almost always something I have. Unless my body is really warm like in the summer or just out of a hot shower, my scrotum is usually tight. It drives me crazy and can be uncomfortable. My body temp is usually in the mid 97.7° range. I notice when I'm running a fever, and my body temp is 99° or above, my scrotum is always loose. Would prefer it loose all the time.

    I have the same symptom, when I am abstinent for long periods. 4-5 days at least.

    I am not on TRT.

    But everytime, abstinence makes my balls double or tripple size (no joke!), and everything is tight down there, scrotum as well.

    Might be higher T/DHT...

    And, first 2-3 times after abstinence, the boner is very very good. But then only 75-85% again.

    Yes, mine also seems to be looser after sex for a while.

    I don't mind it being a little tighter, since the last few years it had become to loose for my liking. The only thing that worries me it that I don't want to be experiencing testicle atrophy, and I had read that tightness can be a sign of that.

    Is that true, or can scrotum be tight even with no testicle atrophy?

    Personally I've noticed that when scrotum is tighter and balls are harder, sex drive and erection quality improves. It's been difficult maintaining an ideal state. It seems to change quite often even on same regimen. I believe stress plays a big part of it with me. I'm on a cobination of hcg and gel w/ adex.

    Your not married are you? My raisin sized testicles tend to get drawn in and small sack. I am not on HCG just Androgel. My primary care doctor treats me, I have been thinking of switching to a anti-aging doc.

    IMO this is normal in any male.
    Sometimes my nut sack is tight, an other times it is hanging low, I don't really worry about it.

    My wife saw me reading this post and is now making fun of me for reading up on the elasticity of ballsacks....That said, since starting TRT I've noticed that my sack has shrunk a fair amount, though I just ordered HCG, so hopefully that will help some.

    HCG does help if TRT shrinks your boys.
    I bet your wife reads some articles you could laugh at.

    Yes, but it is different from before TRT, despite using HCG.

    I am on TRT and HCG and I my boys seem to be the same size as before I started TRT.
    I don't know how one would measure ball size, maybe a caliper.

    My wife made fun of me too. I will just make fun of her lack of sex drive next time she says no.

    I was thinking more along the lines of a water displacement test. :thumbup1:

    True i agree,,

    I noticed when my sex drive decreased that my balls stopped getting tight when i got an erection.. It has never come back to how it was. Probably a good sign of somehting wrong hormonally..

    Depends also if your problem is primary or secondary are your testicles failing to produce testosterone or is your body not telling your testicles not to produce it. If you are primary then you will notice various changes I would say.
    I know HCG helps the scrotum to relax somewhat.
    When I have sex mine gets rather tight also everything is not the same on HRT as it is naturally, such as the scrotum.
    It is not something I would really worry about.

    Also I would make sure your hormones are not too high if you start to have more side effects or make sure something is not off, but if the only problem is a tight scrotum again I would just not worry about it.
    After sex I have noticed as long as I ejaculate the scortum relaxes and feels better, your scrotum and testicualr reflexes may change due to various reaons while or hrt.

    I have heard some guys go to a Urologist to get testicular enhancements implants etc, others use HCG and do very well.

    Also I would have my Dr check it out with the next visit and mention the issues you are having.

    That's the thing. I had developed a huge hanging turkey waddle in the last few years. This has now disappeared completely, so it a definitely a cosmetic improvement. It is like having an instant scrotum rejuvenation...

    Maybe the turkey waddle was a sign of low hormones, which has now been corrected.

    It is not going to be the same as your natural production.
