Top tips for healthy penis and testicles

By Kate R Monday, October 30, 2017 - 14:50
Healthy genitals are important for the overall well being of a man. Problems with the penis or the testes can often be a sign of an underlying condition, which many men tend to often ignore because of the embarrassment. Here are some tips for keeping your penis and testes healthy.
Keep the penis clean

This one is the simplest: while having a bath, it is important to wash the penis by pulling back the foreskin and washing underneath. According to the medical experts, if this area is not washed properly, a substance called smegma – a natural lubricant for the penis – begins to gather in the area, which can become a breeding ground for bacteria.

The testicular self-examination

Every man should check his testes regularly. The instructions are simple – roll a testicle using the fingers and thumbs of both hands, and feel for any lumps. Men need to conduct this exam regularly to notice if there is any change, which may be a symptom of a wide range of diseases, including testicular cancer. Every man should conduct this self-exam at least once in four weeks.

Have protected sex

Sexually transmitted diseases are invisible and often give off no symptoms, till years later. The most common is chlamydia, which results in pain while urinating and swollen testicles. Another such disease is genital herpes, which can cause bumps or sores in the genital area. The best prevention for these is having protected sex.

Groom carefully

Many men groom their groin. However, it is essential to do it properly and carefully, especially along the scrotum. A small cut, apart from being painful, can also invite a host of bacteria or other microbes which can go on to result in a disease down there.

Maintain a healthy lifestyle

A healthy lifestyle is the key to a healthy penis. An erection can be affected by a number of factors – obesity, smoking, excessive drinking of alcohol and stress. Regular exercise and a good night’s sleep also helps keep the penis functioning properly.

You might wanna consider using lubricants. Read here: https://lovematters.in/hi/news/secret-happy-sex-right-lubricant Relax! It's not really that uncommon to ejaculate prematurely. Pay attention to your partner's body, understand it. See, the more turned on you are, the more likely you are to ejaculate. In such a situation, it's important to focus on the partner's body and foreplay. Also, you can masturbate before sex at an interval that it takes you to become erect again. Using condoms can also help in prolonging erections. https://lovematters.in/en/news/premature-ejaculation-top-five-facts If you would like to join in on a further discussion on this topic, join our discussion board, "Just Ask” https://lovematters.in/en/forum

Does the foreskin never go back... do you feel it is stuck or is it very tight? You may be aware that a sticky substance called smegma gets accumulated under the foreskin which must be cleaned while bathing... is it that? if yes please clean yourself gently but daily. But if it is not that and actually the foreskin is too tight causing pain during erection, then Puttarji, you have to see a doctor... do it soon, the earlier the better. It may require a small cut, nothing to be afraid off, its a very simple and small , quick procedure. https://lovematters.in/en/our-bodies/male-body/my-foreskin-is-tight-should-i-get-circumcised If you would like to join in on a further discussion on this topic, join our discussion board, "Just Ask” https://lovematters.in/en/forum

Ashawan bete, hand sex ya hastmaithun ka isse koi sambandh nahi. Hastmaithun ek safe/surakshit tareeka hai apni santushti karne ka. Isse koi nuksaan ya beemari nahin hoti.
