Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have had a habit of masturbating since eight years. I have been doing it ten times daily since I was 12 years old and somehow I want stop it. Does this habit affect my growth? Please help.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Thank you for your query. The masturbation will not affect your growth and these two are not related to each other. But I would like to focus more on your case. You are having excess masturbation habit. It can lead to chronic fatigue. Chronic groin pain and social anxiety also can be possible. Sometime it can lead premature ejaculation as well. So you should decrease the frequency of masturbation to avoid these problems. I can help you in this regard if you want further discussions. Thank you.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
