User :   I am 25yrs old, 182 cms tall and weight 80kgs
User :   Hi
User :   Is there some one available?
Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hello doc
User :   Those are my physical attributes!
Doctor :   How can i help you today ?
Doctor :   ok
User :   Now what ever I type here, I am assuming its 125% confidential
User :   I dont smoke
Doctor :   yes it is
User :   I dont drink, no pan stuffs!
User :   Now i have some questions to ask you.
Doctor :   ok, that is good
User :   First question is, I am getting married in a few months.
User :   I have been like masturbating for quite some time now.
User :   Do you think that will affect my post marriage life?
User :   I dont have any pain or i dont have any problem. But I am just a bit nervous.
Doctor :   masturbation is safe and the alternative to safe sex
User :   I have told this to my fiancee also.
User :   Ok.
Doctor :   there is no need to be worried about it
User :   I have been doing this for like 2-3 years now almost 3-4 times a week.
User :   is this still fine?
Doctor :   post marriage, you can include it in the form of foreplay as well
User :   Over the past 20-30 days, I have veen under strict control.
User :   I have never lost my focus in the past 20-30 days.
Doctor :   yes , masturbation - has the same physiologic effects as normal sexual activity
User :   but am a bit skeptical.
User :   Ok.
Doctor :   the only difference is that - the female vagina is replaced by your own hands
Doctor :   you need not think that masturbation is wrong
Doctor :   it is a incorrect perception
User :   ok. sounds good.
User :   One more thing is, I am an athelete. But of late, I feel i have completely lost my stamina. Even after climbing two floors, i start puffing and feel like very tired. My heart starts beating fast.
Doctor :   it helps to relieve sexual frustration in unmarried sexually inactive individuals
User :   Do you think this is coz of my masturbation etc?
Doctor :   no masturbation does not cause any such effects
User :   I dont think I have the same stamina that i used to have earlier.
User :   One thing is, i have stopped playing after i left college. why do you think i would have lost stamina?
Doctor :   it could be due to reduced hemoglobin that causes anemia
User :   Oh ok.
User :   But of late, i have started eating like2-3 eggs daily.
User :   Do you think that still helps?
Doctor :   since you have started playing after a long time (probably) you might not be physically fit as before
User :   How can i get my stamina back? Should i start gymming again? Its been almost 2-3 years now since I started gymming
Doctor :   yes working out, will help
Doctor :   regular cardio exercises will improve your stamina
User :   But do you think ihave some problem, as I have lost my stamina? I get tired as I even climb 3-4 floors via steps. Not tired but I start breathing heavily.
Doctor :   that is common, in many individuals when they climb so much
User :   But i was not having the same problem, like 3-4 years back.
Doctor :   this should not be thought of a problem
User :   I am just 25 too.
User :   So pretty young.
User :   Do you think I should change my diet as well?
User :   I want to improve my overall fitness
Doctor :   do u think , young men , dont become weak with stress and work issues
Doctor :   you need not worry
User :   Someone like tendulkar has been fit like for 22 years. I wanna be the same.
User :   :)
Doctor :   good diet with high protein intake will help
User :   I know very well, that I control my focus.
User :   Ok.
Doctor :   dont you think, has gone thru so many injuries and surgeries
User :   :)
Doctor :   he has to practice daily or else he cannot perform
User :   But i am sure, he will not puff or breathe hard when he climbs 4 floors at a stretch.
User :   ok.
Doctor :   you can ask the question , to him, and he will surely say, that he is a human being, and he will definitely huff and puff
Doctor :   if he is asked to do that
User :   :)
User :   What do you suggest? daily exercises? and good food?
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   that is the way ahead
User :   I want to gain my fitness level back. Thee was a time when I used to run a 10km lap in a single stretch.
