Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I masturbated a lot before. Now, I have stopped. But my buttocks always pain when I sit down. What should I do? The pain has been for about two years. Also, my penis itches. But if I apply Vaseline to the penis, the itching stops. If I eat food, I feel pain in my anus area. When I drink water, it stops (pain after eating). I had hemorrhoids before, but it is gone for over two years. I have used anal suppositories. Please help.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I can understand your concern.

Masturbation is normal. 95 % of male does that (out of 100 male). It is just another way of having sex without a partner, and it is a good practice. It helps to relieve stress, boost mood, and improve sleep. It also helps to prevent depression and anxiety, relaxes the mind of a person, relieves pain and muscle cramps, and relieves sexual tension. Masturbation improves the confidence of a person, allows one to have better sex, and helps the person understand his needs and desires. In females, masturbation increases vaginal blood flow. Masturbation will not harm your penis, and 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. Following are the suggested ways to reduce masturbation:

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 a decrease in strength, I suggest you use a capsule of Astymin forte (biotin, calcium pantothenate, cyanocobalamin, and folic acid) once a morning and a tablet of Shelcal (calcium and vitamin D3) once a night after food for 30 days. Itching can be due to fungal infection. If you share pictures, I can help you with medicine.

Hope this helps.
