    May have low testosterone at age 21.

    Hi, this is the first time I'm telling anyone about this; I think I may have low testosterone and I've felt like this for quite a while now...
    My testicles have become small, soft and sensitive to touch. I have little to no desire for sex and I don't really get erections except occasionally, mostly in the morning. I feel numb down there most of the time especially when I'm not at home and might occasionally feel sexually aroused but it's not really all that intense and dies out soon.
    I'm currently studying at a university and I really don't have much motivation to study on time and to generally do things I should do on time, on time. I keep stalling and delaying what I should do simply because of a severe lack of motivation and a feeling of apprehension. I feel fatigued and lazy all the time. I also have a lack of self confidence about certain things which makes me on edge when someone points out something negative about me.
    I pretend to be interested in girls when I'm with my friends even though I don't really feel much. Even my family doesn't know about it. I come from a culture where you don't really talk about having a girlfriend or boyfriend publicly even if you do, and if you do most of them refrain from engaging in sex for religious reasons. As such it's not really seen as all that unusual that I don't have a girlfriend. My friends just think I don't really make an effort to get to know a girl because I'm just too scared to approach one but the reality is very different. My family just thinks I'm being a "good boy".
    I was pretty into girls and thinking about sex when I was 13-16. Something happened when I was 16 and I lost interest and then from that point onward my testicles became smaller and softer and now I'm 21...
    I really need some advice here on what I should do at this point. I'm really confused and worried. I've taken 5 years because the thought of bringing up something like to someone even to family especially in my country would be horribly embarrassing. My family really loves me and I love them but this is too much... I was hoping it would get better in the future but it hasn't now I really don't know what I should do...
    Thanks.

    I am 5'11 and 72 kg. Outwardly there is nothing apparently wrong with me just certain behaviours and feelings that are not what a normal healthy 21 year old should have. I really need your help, I have my whole life ahead of me...

    Hi Its best you get off and see a urologist ASAP and get some tests done, its the only way you going to find out what is behind your problem.

    You really do need to think about what happened between 13 and 16, it could be a testicle torsion, if so, you have a big problem best discussed with a URO. OK
