How to Size a Scrotal Support Suspensory
A scrotal support suspensory is used for post-op recovery and treatment of scrotal problems. This unique device will help maintain the integrity and comfort of the scrotal area. Coming in varying sizes, it is important to know which size will work for you, to maintain your comfort during healing.
Many users assume that a scrotal support suspensory is measured by waist, much like an athletic cup (or jockstrap). With a scrotal support device, sizing is based upon the inflammation of the scrotum. Hence, if your scrotum is extremely swollen an X-Large pouch may be the size for you, but if you are experiencing minor swelling a Medium or Large size should be capable of managing your needs.
First measure the scrotum across from one side to the other beginning at the crease between leg and scrotum.
Next measure the scrotum from just under the penis around the scrotum to the rectum.
Regular: Fits upto 8 inches x 10 inches
Large: Fits upto 12 inches x 14 inches
Extra Large: Fits upto 16 inches x 18 inches
You can request help from your doctor, or estimate what your average size is and base your level of swollenness off of that to ensure proper fit. If sized too small, the suspensory will be too tight and uncomfortable. If you choose a size to big, the suspensory will not be able to support the scrotal area properly.
