    Hi Jeanie, it's best to get this checked as soon as you can. Your normal family doctor / Gp can do this for you, especially if you're uncomfortable and its getting trapped. Don't put it off honey, get it looked at so you can stop worrying about it.

    I have what I can only describe at what looks like the dangly thing at the back of your throat in my vagina, it sometime popped out and has been noticed and commented on once before sex, it someone become painful when I wipe after the loo as I can feel it get twisted. I am concerned as I am having a baby shortly and don't no what it is?

    Yes they can. Many men with one testicle have plenty of kids. Each testicle produces millions of sperm cells. It only takes one sperm cell to make a baby. So don't stress.

    Im 32 and I am trying to fall pregnant but I have never had menstruation since I was born. I went to see the doctor and also done sonar they told me that my uterus is 3cm small and it also twisted to the left hand side. I am worried if I will ever fall pregnant. Please help

    i experience pain in the bottom of the scortum and up into my abdomen on the left side. Feels like my testicle is twisted - but it is the tube/cord that that has the most pain. Just a dull throbbing/burning sensation - hard to manaage the pain as there is no cofortable position.

    my son had operation for torsion of the testicle 6 weeks ago and recovered well. since he had a check-up with specialist last week he has been in pain in the same testicle - not as bad as when it was twisted but a continuous ache that is pretty sore all the time. we returned to specialist last night who scanned him and could not find anything wrong but has given him antibiotics anyway. is this normal?

    May of last of year I had a twisted hernia operation, keyhole surgery. A few days after coming out of hospital I developed a most disgusting taste in my mouth, which I still have. I have seen 4 different consultants, my doctor has prescribed different medications all to no avail. At times I don't feel like eating but make myself do so. I cannot believe there is not someone somewhere that hasn't an answer as to what is causing this problem. It really is very bad. Hope someone can help.Has anyone else had this problem ?

    Hi. I was experiencing difficulties with my lower belly. I had cramps and was constipated very often. One time I was really worried that I had twisted bowel so I checked. Instead I found a small ball inside my bowel. I didnt worry too much. I checked again after few months and it seems bigger and hurts when touched. I don't know if I should be concerned. I am only 19 so this is quite embarrising but I'm starting to be stressed.

    i am 43 and have had IBS most of my life but as got worse in the last couple of yrs. it gets that bad that i am doubled up in pain and the only thing that helps is if i lay out flat. but this is not always possible if i am at work. i am finding that it seems to happen after i have been to the toilet and passed a large amount. i dont go that often , maybe once a week if that. i have wind most of the time but it doesnt smell.i have tried to keep an eye on what i eat and do try to eat healthilly, but it is getting that bad as i get older im wondering if it is something more serious, is it possible i could be heading for a twisted bowel? i have been to the doctors but they never seem to be able to help, just end up with dilutable drinks which dont work. i just wondered about the twisted bowel as it only relieves it by lying down flat, its as if im all twisted inside.

    Hi I twisted my testicle a while back had the operation etc all successful. Now my ex-twisted testicle is MUCH smaller than the other, they were pretty even before- I guess this must be a side effect but I can't find anything on the Internet - wondering if this has happened to anyone else?

    yes this is happenened to me, the way i got rid of it is: i masturbated five times a day for a week (i heard this from a website forum) and i was not allowed to wash my testicle for the duration of the week, it has something to do with sperm build up and your testicles are having to use more and more so it biulds them back up.

    This sounds like testicular torsion - which is where the tube attaching to your tesitcle becomes twisted on itself. If can happen randomly, or may be due to a lot of movement down there e.g. during sports. It sounds like yours may have come and then gone away on its own but the danger is that it may become twisted and compromise the blood supply to your testicle, causing what's called an infarction (similar to a heart attack). If the pain returns and persists, you must go to A&E. In the mean time make an appointment with your GP so have them check that everything is in the right place.

    Hello my name is Thea, I have hip dysplasia and femural retroversion, in other words..... my bones in my hips have twisted and I can turn my feet backwards which felt normal even though I was in soo much pain constantly. It was my primary school teacher who noticed that there was something that wasnt right 3 years ago so mum took me to the hospital where I found out about my condition. Its very unusual as most people with my condition have feet pointing inwards where mine point outwards. Last christmas I had an operation where they sawed through my femur twisted it inwards 30 degrees and pinned and plated it. It sounds like how I felt before my operation but inwards which is much more common. I dont really know much about it so im not going to try and advice you just letting you know about my condition. :)

    I feel that my penis is leaning to the right,and it might be twisted to the right to, plz help

    Luke, If you're in a lot of pain, It could be a torsion: your testicle could be twisted, lose blood supply, and die. Go to the ER.
