Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

What nutrients of the body get lost after one masturbates and after excessive masturbation?

How much masturbation is safe and acceptable?

How can one replenish them fast, and with what dietary intake?

Does the same thing happen after sex as well?

Kindly guide.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

After masturbation, you may lose some minerals or sugar, but the quantity is very little. So do not be afraid of loss. You may lose more minerals or sugar during a walk for few minutes. Masturbation is safe if done once or twice a week or if it does not affect your work or social life. It should not be done as compulsive masturbation.

  • Avoid doing prone position masturbation.
  • Take a healthy diet, avoid eating fast food and avoid substance use like alcohol or tobacco.
  • You can take some dry fruit, fresh fruits, and green vegetables.

Yes, the same things also happen after sex.

I hope this clarifies your concern.

Thanks and regards.

Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

Thank you for your reply.

What are the disadvantages of prone masturbation?

Can sex toys be used for masturbation?

How much time should one be away from masturbation to regain our body strength or fatigue if done excessively by mistake?

Any exercises you recommend to do to regain strength after masturbation or sex?


Welcome back to icliniq.com.

During prone position masturbation, it may hurt the penis, and this can cause injury.

Sex toys can be used, but better avoid them.

After masturbation multiple times in a day, you may feel tired and usually just fine after a day or two.

The best exercise is running, jogging, or so-called cardio exercise.

Avoid alcohol or tobacco, or any other substance.
