Testicles produce a significant amount of testosterone from midnight to 5AM. Which means it is normal for men to have their testicles grow in size in the morning hours. Pituitary gland also contributes to this mechanism by secreting growth hormone. Together, these hormones recharge the testicles during night time.
If however, the size of the testicles remain small before and after waking up then it might be due to improper circadian rhythms which also leads to disturbed sleep cycle.
It is very essential to have undisturbed sleep every day.
Circadian rhythms serve as body’s very own clock that is responsible for synchronizing the day-night cycle. With the rhythms being in normal balance, people experience the state of near coma each night and various body systems slow down to let the body do repairing and recharging. As a result, anabolic hormones are secreted that produce sperm and make up for the damaged tissues.
Therefore, testicles play a vital part in this resting mechanism as 95% of testosterone and 100% of sperm is released by testicles. So, with undisturbed sleep cycle, everything goes normal for a healthy man. But sleep deprivation can be dangerous for men.
There are healthier approaches to keep things under control. These include:
As circadian rhythms are greatly affected by the influence of sunlight so it is a healthy habit to spend at least a minimum time of 15 minutes in the natural daylight regularly.
Sleep deprivation can lead to numerous medical problems, small testicles is one of them. By developing healthy habits, it not only becomes easier to fall into a coma-like sleep but it also helps in repair and recharge mechanism of the body.
