Many of us have experienced a shruken penis/testicles. Would anyone be willing to post pictures of their penis/testicles? Remember, you will remain completely anonymous. Sometimes I think the shruken penis/testicles is just in my head, and I'm sure many of you feel the same way at times.

Well the penis and testicles naturally are constantly shrinking and relaxing, this is done automatically so the body can regulate temperature and sperm production and motility. If you ever observed your penis carefully before any of this, this happens all the time, but we were just less concerned about it.

Now if you have any sort of blockages in there, and or mental and emotional blockages, this could all be caused by any of such reasons or a combination of them: stress, illness or infection down within that region, a prostate blockage and or problem, and or androgen levels that are off. And this couls all then become worse, such as what many of us are experiencing.

I notice my penis problems wax and wane from time to time, sometimes feeling, acting, and looking completely normal again, to then acting up/flaring up again, usually from worrying about it, and or feeling the symptoms, as I've talked about prostate symptoms caused by ??, but usually it seems from dietary, stress, psychological reasons, or from physical discomfort.
All of which could be caused by an underlying trauma that was put on the prostate, which is now inhibitting it from returning to its natural state, and or for androgen reasons, which many talk about on this site.

I'm thinking of framing this. This is the most logical thing you have ever posted! I wish it didn't follow with the rest of the prostate garbage you talk about.

Hey Josh, I suggested the same on the Yahoo forum. But then became weary of all the prostate massagers wanting it for different reasons!

I understand that the size of the penis and testicles fluctuate. My point is that there is an irregular or unnatural fluctuation of the penis and testicles due to the effects of propecia.

NOTE TO ALL: The above photos are NOT WORK SAFE and are hosted by an external website.

That said... yea, the shaft basically looks like mine when flaccid -- retracted, wrinkly, and scrunched up.

Testes -- same issue. I can say without doubt mine have also lost size. I'd say we are suffering from the same effects.

I'm not a doctor though... and I'm not gay! Just giving you some feedback.

My package use to be similar to this aswell, its better now tho.

Btw, its funny how u have to say yr not gay in order to comment on these pictures :)
Any1 who think some1 commenting on stuff like this or prostate massages etc have anything to do with sexuality in our situation, is either, a real jerk, just having a really bad day, or trying to hide the fact hes gay :)

No... just making it clear, its not everyday guys go around checking out other guys' packages... but in this case, it is definitely warranted.

I too have gotten the retracted penis thing. It used to almost stand up, erect, however it was in it's flaccid state shrunken and dense.

However, this is one of the few things that has gotten better over time, as well as the pain and curving. Erections are generally stronger too. I now feel that the regular viagra (or other) helped over time. Of course time itself is a factor as well. I remember early on, I was trying arginine, as people recommend, and finding it did nothing. No matter how much I took, it seemed like a sugar pill. Now, I can most nights take 1000mgs before bed and get some morning wood. A real improvement. It's by no means as relaxed as is once was, but better, tissue feels smoother.

Now if I could only find something to help my libido!!!!!!!!!!!!! Which has somehow diminished even further over time.

yeah dude, looks like what i was suffering from, it happened about 8 months after i stopped and stayed for about 3 weeks, things also felt lifeless down there. it seems to have subsided in last 2-3 weeks. i had never experienced this until then. hot baths and using the shower head down there helped i think, not sure if it just wore off naturally.
