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.



i heard they can happen 8 times a day

childbirth might be worse and last longer but it only happens usually a few times, they know when its gonna happen, mostly choose it, and get painkillers while guys dont

Honestly you guys. Comparing pain? So that's what's up nowadays? Who's got the worst of it? Sorry could not help but to see the comments. Does that matter much? ''This is cooler'' ''I have more pain'' ''My music is better'' ''I have more money'' '' I am better'' Not to be rude or anything but it's so low when people compare such things.

Errr, use testes or testicles, but testicals incorrect...

Anyway, comparing pain is impossible. I can compare using an epidural (required for one of my surgeries, and offered for many childbirths), but once you get it, you pretty much don't feel anything "down there". The only real comparison might be between when the pain starts and when you get the epidural to shut the pain down, I suppose, but getting a kick vs hours of childbirth isn't nearly the same. Even surgery usually isn't, unless you wake up during it.

And no, a kick to your privates isn't likely to end your potential fathering of children. It will hurt, but it likely won't do enough damage to stop you from parental duties.

Childbirth. Seriously. Is this a question? Do people actually believe that a good nut kicking is more painful? For shame.

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


And you giggled in joy while pulling?

Okay, I'm sure getting kicked in the balls hurts a lot. A LOT. Like, I've seen a grown man go down from it, and have to stay down for a few minutes. I'm not trying to belittle the pain in the slightest.

But you're literally pushing a baby out of your genitals. And yes, pain can be due to the baby itself, but that's /childbirth/. You're...you know. Birthing a child. Of course the baby's going to cause pain! My cousin's baby was approximately 12 pounds. And she was in labor for 36 hours.

36 freaking hours.

I understand that you may get 'breaks' in contractions, but that does not make the situation any easier? You have a baby pushing out of your genitals, or unwilling to come out, for /hours/. Those breaks literally mean nothing when you know the pain's going to come back for another awful period.

And then don't forget about after birth. You have to push out the after birth, too. That hurts, a lot. Lots of bleeding. And placenta.

Everywhere.

And can we talk about how your body has to stretch to accommodate that baby? Sometimes it tears. Your baby can literally tear you.

Also, if you want to talk technicalities about the baby causing the pain, there's also technicalities with how hard you get kicked in the balls, too. You wouldn't say that the shoe and force itself was where the pain was related to, rather than the actual process of getting kicked in the balls, right? You can't really say that for the baby, either.

Also, I've literally never heard of a woman feeling no pain during childbirth, as long as she was conscious. Like, ever.

But, really, I'm not here to put down anyone's pain. If I had balls, I wouldn't want to be kicked in them. Men don't worry about birthing a kid, women don't worry about getting kicked in the balls.

But, you know, as for that one consistency argument--do you really want to step on thumbtacks in intervals? Like, that's not consistent, but it sure as hell hurts. You know what I mean?

The man was in pain. The attending nurse got scared. I got scared. So, we both left the room.
Scary.

The difference is that something incredilble and fantastic and indescribably joyful comes after the childbirth. Getting kicked in the nuts will only make you throw up and possibly reduce your chances of experience what comes after childbirth.

Childbirth kills significantly more people, even in first world countries.
Also, you can claim that childbirth comes with joy afterwards, but that's clearly not always the case. Stillbirths, premature births, congenital deformities/diseases, etc...

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).


I do agree that neither of them are really comparable to each other.

However, just because you have time to prepare for the pain while being pregnant doesn't make it any less once you do experience it and the epidural doesn't always take all of the pain away. It didn't in my case. As for Caesarean's, they are actually worse to have than doing normal labor and the pain lasts after you have the baby because they are actually cutting into your body. A Caesarean is major surgery, not just your body pushing and stretching like in a normal labor. I know this because both of my babies were Caesarean's. The recovery time afterwards is longer than a normal labor and after having two Caesarean's a woman has to have Caesarean's for any other baby that she might have after that because there are too many risks involved to be able to have a normal birth. Trust me, I didn't want to have a Caesarean either time, or for at least one of the times, but it was what was best at the time. And while I want to have more children, I'm not looking forward to going through that again.

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).


This answer is complete garbage. If you're going to make things up, then at least try to keep your answers reasonable. Go haul a refrigerator alone up four flights of stairs and you might get an idea of the kind of strain that labor puts on your body. Contractions are essentially rhythmic seizing of massive smooth muscles, and they hurt the way straining to lift very heavy weights can hurt - only instead of doing a few repetitions they go on for hours and hours.

I vote for changing the question to:
Childbirth for 36 hours versus getting kicked in the balls for 36 hours.
I know which I would choose.

Also, people seem to be getting diverted from the pain aspect; yes, childbirth causes injury that needs to be recovered from.
But considering that we now have lasers that can cause excruciating pain with no visible injury, I'm not sure injury is a valid way to measure pain in all cases.

I can say that I don't know any man that has made plans to be struck in the balls a second time, after experiencing it the first time.
On the other hand, a woman I work with recently delivered twins, and claims she'll keep having children until she gets a daughter.

At any rate, I think we can all agree that both hurt like hell, just from observing people's reactions.
I do wonder if there is a limit to how much pain the human brain can handle, before further pain just doesn't register.
I suspect that neither of these pains even approach that, though.
