Hello doctor,

I am unmarried, my age is 29, and I have some questions regarding my stamina. Sometimes when I masturbate, I feel very weak and also see a low sperm count. I am very worried about the life ahead.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

I can understand your concern.

Masturbation is normal. Ninety-five percent of male does that (out of a hundred male, ninety-five male). It is just another way of having sex without a partner. It is a good practice as it provides the following advantages:

  • It helps to relieve stress.
  • Boosts mood.
  • Improves sleep.
  • Helps to prevent depression and anxiety.
  • Relaxes the mind of a person.
  • Relieves pain and muscle cramps.
  • Relieves the sexual tension.
  • Improves the confidence of a person.
  • Allows one to have better sex.
  • Helps the person understand his needs and desires.
  • In females, masturbation increases vaginal blood flow.

Masturbation will not harm your penis. Having it two to three times a week is not an issue. More than that can cause tiredness, loss of concentration, sense of infertility. The following are suggested ways to reduce masturbation:

  • Sex education.
  • Physical exercises.
  • Sleep adjustment.
  • Quality of sleep.
  • Healthy and balanced diet.
  • Programming for leisure time.
  • Development of spirituality.
  • Taking a cold bath.

For tiredness or a decrease in strength, I suggest you use a capsule of Astymin forte (biotin, calcium pantothenate, and cyanocobalamin) once a morning and a tablet of Shelcal (calcium and vitamin D3) once a night after food for thirty days.

Hope this has addressed your concern.

Thanks and regards.
