I assume you're asking which one hurts more? I've only experienced one of them, so I'm a little out of my field on this one.

Try a cluster headache. Even most women who get one admit it's worse than childbirth. I've had a few in my time and I would never wish that on my worst enemy.

I used to get Chronic Mirgaines when I was younger , but I never heard of a Cluster headache. After googling it: The cluster headache is more painful but much shorter than the migraine, but both suck horribly.

Removing a foley catheter enveloped with crusted blood clot from a man's bladder thru its urethra canal.

That's hell. The man was unable to scream in pain.

Childbirth that can last up to 8+ hours, or getting kicked in the nuts which more than likely will not hurt as long as that.
I'll take kicked in the nuts.

Childbirth pain last longer
kick in nuts last about 5 min if that

The actual pain is probably more or less equal, but it's due to the time scale involved, I guess. The initial sharp pain from a critical hit to the nads lasts just as long as any impact, but it leaves you with that awful, dull nausea which other injuries just don't compare with... Not to mention the worry that some serious damage could well have been done to that fragile system

In fact, I remember reading somewhere that the actual pain measurement of the initial impact surpasses that involved with childbirth in magnitudes, but I'm not sure how well-founded that 'study' was.

The only thing that's ever come close to a groin attack for me was when I ran and went flying over, and subsequently onto, a chair, and got utterly and completely winded - that's was really painful and also TERRIFYING, seeing as I literally couldn't breathe for a good few moments...

I doubt they are really comparable because no one can experience both in a lifetime...

With child birth you have roughly 9 months of warning that the pain is coming and in most modern societies they give the women an option of getting an epidural. Also some women end up getting a Caesarean (C section).

As for getting kicked in the balls it can happen without warning and you don't really have the option of pain killers. I'd assume the pain does not last more then a few minutes however I've never had it happen to me so I can't say one way or the other...

Back to the original point it's apples and oranges, yeah both of them are fruits but they are totally different. Just like in the case of getting kicked in the balls vs child birth both of these cause pain in roughly the same place however they are completely different.

The video was good, although their conclusion was weak. There are ways to make a reasonable comparison, though.

Passing a kidney stone is comparable (pain-wise) to transitional labor, and can last many hours or even days. I know this first-hand, as I've done both, although the baby took six times longer than the kidney stone. Labor, however, gives you a short break every couple minutes, and kidney stones do not. Also, the hormone that keeps the positive feedback loop of labor going is a narcotic and dissociates you from the pain, so that as soon as contractions stop you actually can rest. Men who have passed kidney stones generally say it is the most painful experience of their lives, without mentioning getting kicked in the balls. I am interested in what a man has to say about his experiences with kidney stones vs getting kicked in the nuts.

Some other points that don't necessarily address the pain experienced during each event:
Men who have been kicked in the balls can usually get up and chase you with murderous intent, whereas women who just delivered a baby will not be doing this.
Getting kicked in the nuts usually does not require stitches, whereas delivering a baby often requires many (50 to 100) and has a recovery time of 3 to 6 weeks.
People laugh at a guy getting kicked in the nuts, but faint when they see a woman giving birth.
Prior to modern medicine, men rarely died from getting kicked in the nuts, but 25% of women died in childbirth or from postnatal infections. Handwashing did wonders for the survival rate.
There are no classes to help men prepare their bodies to get kicked in the nuts, but women have Lamaze, yoga, etc...

I just wikipedia'd 'Cluster headache' and it sounds frickin' awful.

On-topic: Childbirth lasts for hours and hours with contractions and all. So I'd say childbirth is WAY worse.

Well, at the end of childbirth you get a baby, so that makes them inherent opposites since the other one likely renders you unable to have one. In terms of that, I'd rather experience, or more appropriately have my future wife experience childbirth.

Can't really compare the two, since childbirth pain is not consistent. Some women feel no pain at all, while others feel pain which is mainly due to the baby itself rather than because of the process of childbirth (for e.g. the baby's skull is too big for the birth canal, the baby doesn't want to come out yet, the baby's tangled in the umbilical cord).


In conclusion, getting kicked in the nuts is worse, because the pain is consistent, every man (who still has them) will definitely feel pain when getting kicked there (unless he was born with Congenital insensitivity to pain).
