has anyone out there had an inguinal hernia (the kind where there is a tear in the muscle covering the inguinal canal-- where the testes descend in a developing fetus)?
I think I've got one, and I'll tell you why...
warning: graphic content below
when I am having sex, particularly in missionary/me on top-her on her back positions, and it's hard porno bangin style... I've had my right testicle ascend into somwhere that isn't where it should be....
it doesn't hurt or anything... but it sure as hell stops the game and waits for things to get repositioned for a second... which is kind of embarassing/ ackward to explain... it's happened periodically over the past year...but has recently gotten worse (last 3 months)
I think it developed from a short 6mo period of powerlifting, which culminated in squating 405 without a belt... and think the physical stress of powerlifting may have damaged my body in more than one way (wiggling under weight put me in bed for a week, and my back has never been the same)
I haven't gone to the doctor because:
1.) I'm a college student working to support myself, and time off of work means no rent money
2.) I'm a college student and time off of class means a compromised ability to attend my classes
3.) I'm a college student: there's always a holiday and social event to attend see #5
4.) I don't want to spend half a year not being able to work out
5.) I'm a college student: spontaneous ability to have sex is kind of important
I haven't felt any lumps, except for those that occur from the testicular ascention..
does anyone have insite into inguinal hernias or my experience? and do you know how long I'll be down (gym-wise, class-wise, sex-wise)?
I'm a biochem/biology major, so don't worry about simplying a technical explanation (i've had A&P, et c.)
