Want to know that how this history of mine will effect my married life? I will marry at the age of 25, i.e. within 1 year.
Doctor :   Hi
User :   hello sir
Doctor :   I guess you are talking about 'Masturbation.'
User :   ya
Doctor :   Masturbation scientifically has no effects on either the general health or the sexual life.
Doctor :   If at all problems were reported in the past, such effects are proved to be purely attributed to psychological factors(fear of a problem) than masturbation directly.
User :   but i see some effects on my penis as it is having some looseness according to my knowledge
Doctor :   As I mentioned in my previous sentence, there are some problems reported by young men
Doctor :   especially in the verge of marriage or first sexual intercourse.
Doctor :   And based on the studies done on such men,
User :   in past i was not hygenic so i am also having some dots type of appearances on my testis
Doctor :   it has been proved time and again, that such problems are more related to fear of a medical problem, fear of inability to perform well
Doctor :   than masturbation directly.
Doctor :   So, I suggest you not to worry.
User :   directly means??
Doctor :   Directly means masturbation by itself doesn't cause any problems.
User :   ok i understood
Doctor :   However, if you have a fear that there is a problem developed because of this act,
Doctor :   you can have symptoms secondary to this fear.
Doctor :   Hope it is clear to you.
User :   means i can marry?
User :   without fear
User :   ??
Doctor :   If you are having normal early morning erections, if you are masturbating without difficulties,
Doctor :   then there are no restraints to getting married as of now.
Doctor :   Have you followed what i have suggested?
User :   what is early morning erection?
Doctor :   Erection happens due to hormone factors, vascular factors and neurological factors.
Doctor :   these factors are modified by stress and anxiety factors.
Doctor :   Testosterone hormone, the male hormone is high early in the morning.
User :   i used to have these when i stopped masturbation at 19 age
Doctor :   And because of this rise in the morning and because of the absence of stress factors,
Doctor :   most men experience erection early in the morning and as soon as one gets up from sleep.
User :   what is erection exactly?

User :   retracting means what?
Doctor :   And the treatment of such abnormally bent penis with pain (referred to as Peyronie's disease)
Doctor :   is by surgical methods.
Doctor :   Retraction here, means pulling the foreskin back.
User :   ok i am not having that kind of pain..
User :   my right testis is lower than left one.. is it a problem?
Doctor :   So if you do not experience severe pain while pulling the foreskin back and you are able to completely retract the skin, then bent penis will not hinder sexual life.
