I was wondering if I was just imagining things, if this is normal, or if something is wrong. For some time in my late teens, I was involved in a karate class and as part of warm up, we would do a ton of jumping jacks. These were always very uncomfortable for me because I would experience a sort of loose, falling sensation in my genital region. This has never happened to me outside of jumping jacks and similar activities. I haven't brought this up to anyone because I thought it was just a funny small body-thing, but I thought to ask here just for reassurance.

Hi Brister, Could you be a little more descriptive about what you meen by a "a sort of loose, falling sensation in my genital region"? I will be better able to try and help you after I understand more about what is going on.

Hmm, I'm not sure how else to describe it. Do you know how when you move around, you feel like an integrated whole and everything follows the movement? It's the opposite of that- as if something is not following along with the movement of the rest of my body. It's not painful, but it is a very uncomfortable feeling.

Do you remember having done anything that might have triggered or caused this? I'll admit, unless you have had some sort of injury, this has me puzzled. If it isn't giving you problems, I might suggest that you check with your Dr or other health care professional (like your student health center) next time you see them. Sorry I couldn't be of more help! [Frown]

There's been no injuries that could be related. Honestly, I was just curious as many people here appear to be quite knowledgeable about the body. Otherwise, whatever it was, it doesn't bother me now in my daily activities. I just have this tendency leftover from my childhood to think that there is something seriously wrong with me or that I am dying. [Razz]

The main thing is that we are not Dr.s and we can not examine you. I could give you an educated guess but that would do you a disservice if I am wrong. That is why we defer to a health care professional who can examine you and run tests if they feel they are needed.

I just wanted to be sure it wasn't a common symptom because sometimes it is more obvious- like a yeast infection or something- or to be told that was completely normal from a bunch of people who've experienced the same thing, if that makes sense. But. . . I guess it isn't.

Sorry, it isn't anything common that I am aware of; although I don't think it is anything serious.

Hi,

I've done my fair share of jumping jacks and I think I know what sensation you're talking about. I'm a female and I can feel my genital region sort of jiggling around and up and down when I jump too. I think this is completely normal. Don't worry yourself to death over this.

Thank you, Magic's in the Makeup! That reassurance helps a lot. I don't mean to act like a hypochondriac, but I never had a sister to tell me what was going on with my body since puberty (and as a result have some pretty funny/sad stories). So, thanks. [Smile]

Hey, no worries Britster. I always get that way when something feels wrong with my body. The best way I try to explain it to doctors is: "You know how when you feel healthy all the parts of your body just feel fluid and fine? Well, something's wrong and I feel concious of my X." Do you know what I mean? It's like, if you're worrying about something sometimes it can become amplified and you start focusing on it more and it starts to feel weirder. But yeah, my genital region totally feels like that so you're not alone. Let's just blame it on gravity or something, okay? [Smile]

Hi Daki,

FYI, it all depends on how supportive is the underwear you are wearing. The less support provided, the more uncomfortable it is as things move farther. I would probably describe it as a combination of that sensation you ladies have described and a "flopping" feeling since there are more parts to move.

I sort of get that too. In my case it's when I'm in a car which goes over a bump.
