Darkened veins?

Postby deeznutz » March 22nd, 2016, 1:09 am

Hey everyone!

I just have a quick question about testicular health... I've noticed that a few veins on my scrotum become rather dark after wearing my weight for a long time. I've attached a pic in which you can see them clearly... they are only on the left side of my scrotum (I cannot see any such veins on the right side), and appear a dark red color (the flash on the photo makes them appear more prominent than they do to the naked eye, but still).

I was wondering if these darkened veins are cause for concern? Do they indicate that the weight is too tight? I do not feel any pain or aching and my testicles are not any colder to the touch than is normal. Have any of ya'll noticed these kinds of darkened veins on your own balls while stretching?

Thanks guys!

You are still looking good. The veins will swell some with the higher operating pressure from the ring restriction. The left side main vein may be getting some pinch betwixt the teste and ring - reposition the ring up the hang and let it resettle slowly and the vein may "get out of the way".

The veins will also look more prominent on stretched and/or oiled skin. (Thinner and/or more optically transparent.)
The longer the hang the more blood flow is needed to maintain skin temperature and so they dilate to increase flow.
If they are bulging alarmingly or hang cools, there may be an issue.

Remember these are only for the sack skin, the testicle blood system runs inside the cord there it is temperature controlled by hang length.

Awesome tundraman, thank you so much for the quick response!

I was hoping it'd be no cause for concern--can't stop won't stop stretching! :D

Hi guys, I've had this as well and stop stretching for a while until the veins return to normal.
