hi , i need someone to help me.
i've been practicing meditation couple of years and recently added tantric mastrubation , spinal breathing, moving energy upward etc.
one day i woke up and realized my testicles have shrunk and i cant get erection, i wasnt sexual at all, even mentally, i tried to watch porn but there was no reaction to it ( i gave up porn ,i watch it very rarely for past 2 years ), no libido at all. is this normal stage or medical condition ? is my sperm and energy literally absorbed ? after 2-3 days i really tried hard to get erection and ejaculate, which i did and only little sperm came out. i guess this was mistake. but problem is i am confused, i dont know what is happening and what to do since i have no one to guide me. i am more of a guy who practice a lot and rarely read litaerature and theory, i only understand basic general concepts.
have anyone experienced this ? please share some knowledge and advices, thanks in advance !

Road, Welcome to the forum. I have been doing the AYP practices for about a year so I don't have the experience of many on the forum but it sounds like you have more than one thing going on here. If you truly have noticed your testicles have been smaller, I would recommend checking with a doctor as they are primary center of production of testosterone and that could account for your reduced libido, reduced ejaculate and erectile problems. Having said that, many young men (not sure your age) can have a great deal of anxiety around sexual function and that can lead to all sorts of problems as you describe. With respect to how this all relates to AYP practices it would be helpful to share some more details on what type of mediation practice you've been doing over the last couple years and how quickly you've added all of the more recent practices. Overdoing it on adding too much can cause energy imbalances that can affect sexual function indirectly.

hi interpaul, thank you :)
i've been doing mindfulness and trataka combined with nofap for about 2 years. i started solo cultivation with spinal breathing 1 month ago and have done it everyday until 6 days ago when this problems occurred. i also did push ups, pull ups and dips everyday after meditation and cultivation practices.
tantric mastrubation (cultivation) without a doubt caused this condition. i went to doctor and he sent me for blood sampling and urine tests, minerals, all hormones etc. i must wait for results 2-3 weeks and then do ultrasound. im almost 28 years old and i never had this problems before. what bothers me most is not knowing whether this process is normal and good sign and did i interrupt it with ejaculation...or i screwed something up which led to this condition.
its day 6 and i still have same problems, testicles are maybe bit bigger but still smaller than they used to be, asexual state of mind, severe erectily dysfunction, even if i give my best i think i couldnt achieve erection nor get myself to ejaculate now.
i keep asking myself is this good thing happening, have i started automatic reabsorbtion process upwards, should i just wait and do other activities? i dont know where my energy is , where i sent it, is it clearing some pathways? is it stuck?

hi road

I remember a similar question was posted on the forum a while ago. Overdoing tantric practices before you have made enough progress with your meditation practice can cause problems like the one you describe. In your case, starting solo cultivation after 2 years of nofap might have tipped the balance.

The advice is to stop all practices for a while, ground and have a healthy life style.

Wait to see what the medical result is. If it is an energy imbalance, then grounding for as long as necessary will be the way to go.

Hopefully you'll get more advice from the male yogis on this forum.

All the best

Road, I am glad to hear you had things checked out by a doctor. That will help rule out a physical cause of your symptoms. I have a few additional thoughts and then will see what the more experienced practitioners have to say. I came to AYP practices via a nofap path as a result of my own struggles with porn and many of the symptoms you describe. Many young men, you fit in that category, have erectile problems related to porn use. I'm sure you are familiar with the term porn induced erectile dysfunction. My personal take is tantric sexual practices can be problematic in individuals who have overstimulated themselves via pornography. Nofap/bramacharya is a tough path to do in your 20s. I would recommend staying away from porn and give your brain a month or two to recover from any component related to those practices. In the AYP community the focus is on building up practices slowly and favoring the less stimulating practices till after you've developed some inner silence. As such I would suggest reviewing Yogani's teachings and consider just doing deep meditation without any other stimulating practices. I suspect in a few weeks you will feel a lot better, and I'm pretty sure your libido will return. You might review the website if you haven't seen that site. Good luck.
