17 male, some one says your balls drop is?
What does it mean when?
It is when your scrotum first hangs down. You may have noticed that before puberty, you didn't have your sack. Well, I didn't notice the change, very odd. Not till I heard about it, I looked down and said "Hey!"

The whole dropping of the balls is somewhat of a myth. The testes descend from the lower abdomen to the scrotal sac while you're still a baby. When you hit puberty, the testes wants to start making semen so it adjusts more according to its temperature. So, your balls don't actually drop during puberty, hence somewhat a myth.
It can refer to two things: first, when your testicles leave the abdomen and move down into your scrotum. This should happen very young, and is one of the things doctors test for at puberty. If it hasn't happened by puberty they need to operate to get it down, but usually it happens in early infancy.
The other thing the term can refer to is the increase in size and dangliness of your balls with the changes at puberty.
The two things are often confused.
Yeah, it traditionally means reaching puberty.
But its a slang term, as the balls don't really 'drop' during puberty. They increase in size tremendously but they don't drop into the scrotum - they should already be in the scrotum.
What does change during puberty that can be considered closest to the effect of balls dropping, is the scrotum changes - it gets darker, more stretchy and elastic, and more wrinkly, allowing the balls to move up and down more for better temperature control for the best sperm production.
