Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am 27 years old and I am unmarried. I never had sex with a girl but I masturbate a lot. My penis size has got decreased to about three inches. When I masturbate, it comes back to my original size for two minutes. My size of the testis has got decreased. Now the size of the testis is similar to the normal size of an almond. I want to recover back. Is it possible to get my original size? Please help me.

You will definitely know the information that masturbation is not healthy. It causes harm even when it is done occasionally. You need to consult a urologist and stop practicing masturbation. You will get better soon.
