In females, masturbation increases vaginal blood flow. Masturbation would 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, and a sense of infertility.

Ways to reduce masturbation are are listed below.

  3. Sleep adjustment.
  4. Improving the quality of sleep.

For tiredness or a decrease in strength you can take a capsule of Astymin forte once a morning and a tablet of Shelcal (Calcium and Vitamin D3) once in the night after food for thirty days. For cough, you can use the tablet Montek LC (Levocetirizine and Montelukast) once a night and plan for an X-ray chest.

Consult your specialist doctor, talk with them, and take medications with their consent.
