Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am a 23-year-old male. Since I was 15, I used to masturbate excessively, more than once a day, some days three to four times a day. My highest score was seven times a day. I stopped that two years ago. I still masturbate sometimes, but not every day, and only once a day if so, but I have a much lower libido. Also, I started bodybuilding at 15 and used to lift heavy weights, sometimes twice my weight and sometimes even more. Then I read that it was bad to go that heavy I used to think it was healthy, especially for a young school guy.

Additionally, I used to have sleep deprivation, sleeping four to six hours a day maximum. Six hours is a good time. You can say, always under high stress, which affects me sexually. I am sure I lost the size of the penis and the balls based on measurements, not illusions. I had low T symptoms, even the squeeze voice sometimes, even though I was known to have a deep voice. I got better when I almost cut off masturbation and minimized stress. But I’m still not what I was; I feel like sometimes now, when I hit a nut sometimes, it feels like I can’t do more, and sometimes it feels like I can, but there’s a limit; before I used to feel like I can have sex 20 times in a row, I forgot how that feels, it wasn’t just physiological, I knew I actually could back then. I believe I’m still young and can recover; I looked for many natural ways and tried many natural herb test boosters; some helped; Royal jelly helped my balls get bigger, but they are still not there. I finally got to Clomid, Arimidex, and HCG; those are the last solutions I got to, but I have not tried any of them because I am not sure which is better for me or if it is for me, if any of them is good for me anyways, other test boosters were herbs so I made my research and took them that was not scary, but these actually are not something to take only by doing some research, Hope you can help.

Thank you.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I can understand your concern.

Masturbation is normal; ninety-five percent of males do that (out of a hundred males, ninety-five). It is just another way of having sex without a partner. It is a good practice,

1. It helps to relieve stress.

2. Boosts mood.

3. Improves sleep.

4. Helps to prevent depression and anxiety.

5. Relaxes the mind of a person.

6. Relieves pain and muscle cramps.

7. Relieves the sexual tension.

8. Improves the confidence of a person.

9. Allows one to have better sex.

10. Helps the person understand his needs and desires.

11. 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, sense of infertility.

Ways to reduce masturbation are listed below.

  1. Sex education.
  2. Physical exercises.
  3. Sleep adjustment.
  4. Quality of sleep.
  5. Healthy and balanced diet.
  6. Programming for leisure time.
  7. Development of spirituality.
  8. Taking a cold bath.

For tiredness or decreased strength, you can use a capsule of Astymin forte once a morning and a tablet of Shelcal once a night after food for thirty days.

  1. Penis size cannot be decreased by masturbation.
  2. Scrotum size cannot be decreased by masturbation.
  3. Voice change cannot happen due to masturbation.
  4. Depression cannot happen due to masturbation.

If you feel it is happening, it is psychological, not physiological.

There is multiple research to prove that. Stop searching for natural remedies and investigations to cure something you do not have. Do not be hard on yourself. Exercise and try to get good sleep. If you worry, plan for a master health checkup once. After seeing the report, you should move on because I expect a normal report for you.

Share the report once you get

Thank you.
