    Hey Guys, can I ask a question. A doctor tells me that using a smallish dose of testosterone every day will enlarge testicles. Does anyone know if this is true? i have a pretty big cock (just over 8.5 x 6 round) but depressingly small testicles, that are also very 'tight'. I love big low hangers and would love to get my balls in proportion to my dick. Any advice?

    Probably not what you want to hear- but live with them . I also love big low hangers-but that's not the way I am.

    The use of testosterone replacement therapy (products such as Androgel) sometimes causes testicular atrophy, that is, shrinking of the testicles. Therefore, I am surprised that a doctor would suggest that using testosterone would increase testicular size, since the documented effect is quite to the contrary. The ability of steroids such as testosterone to shrink the testis is well-known among men who use heavy doses to enhance physical training, and there are lots of jokes about little balls on steroid users. Testosterone use may cause enlargement of other things, such as the prostate, or quite interestingly, the breasts.

    I use Androgel because I have marginally low testosterone. At one point, while experimenting to find the optimum dosage, we had the dosage too high, and I observed a noticable shrinkage of my testis, although these were quite amply sized to begin with. When we halved the dose, I returned to my normal size. A friend of mine is on very heavy doses of testosterone as part of his HIV treatment. He's noticed that his testis, which were small to begin with, are now something like grapes. (Although he is self-conscious about this, no one notices, because of the lovely, thick 8.5" uncut meat above them!) However, at "normal" doses, Testosterone seems to have little effect on testicular size, while heavy doses seem to cause shrinkage, not enlargement. So, I wouldn't think that a small dose would make any difference. I am now using what might be called a small dose, and as I siad my testis have regained and maintained their original size, although this was not small to begin with.

    To learn more about the effects of Testosterone, read the patient and physician information sheets and colateral material provided by the drug companies selling the testosterone products. Information from the makers of Androgel appears at the links below:

    I'm on replacement therapy now for about a year. Low testerone caused by some of the meds I have to take to stay alive. I get an injection once a month, only side effect I've had is my dick acts like it's 16 years old, not to say that's a bad thing, and my balls hang tighter than they did before the therapy started. No shrinkage as of yet.

    muffdiver2882: Testosturone therapy is ONLY for people who have low testosterone levels. Your doctor can do a simple blood test to determine your level. It WILL NOT cause your testicals to grow. Just the opposite is true, they will shrink if used in excess. You can actually cause your testicals to stop producing testosterone by using either the injection or cream as stated above. Testosterone is not a toy to be played with. It is a level 3 narcotic. I have been using the androgel for several years and am getting along fine, but my levels are very low and Andorgel brings me up to normal where I should be. Don't take a chance of destroying your love life for bigger balls.

    thanks guys for the advice - I'll take that as a no then! Wonder if there is any other methodology for making my balls (or at least the sac!) a bit bigger :)

    You could always use weights to stretch your sac.

    Jeez, I had no idea that Testosterone was so dangerous to people if not used properly. Pretty sad considering I was a 2nd year medical student. LOL

    Learn something new everyday.
    I need to make sure my friend Josh reads some of these posts about it.
    I think he was trying to "increase" his potential in some level from what I gathered.

    jdnrla: Actually, the opposite is true. Using a testosterone supplement will shrink your balls. Your body gets the signal that it has enough testosterone, and tells the testicles to stop making as much. In time, you will need more testostterone throught patches, gels, or shots, and your testicles will continue to shrink. I am like you, extremely well hung with depressingly small balls. I had mumps, and had to go on TRT, and now my testicles are like small marbles.

    Well if your T level is normal and you take T by whatever method it probably would have adverse reactions. Now if your T level is low, for whatever reason, then no I don't think it would cause any shrinkage. As I stated in an earlier post I have been on TRT for over a year without any adverse reactions.
