User :   Hi
Doctor :   Hi
User :   do you think excessive masturbation will lead to health problems?
User :   There is a friend of mine in my room, who has been doing this frequently on a very large scale.
Doctor :   Ok
User :   will this affect his health care?
User :   He does not drink and smoke.
Doctor :

Doctor :  
that Masturbation does not have any harmful effects
User :   he is somewhere around 6 foot tall and 75 kgs.
Doctor :  
and can be done for pleasure
User :   but of late he used to sleep a lot.
Doctor :  
but should not get addicted to it
User :   he says he is very tired and stuff.
Doctor :  
that is the only precaution
User :   He told me that he has knee pain also.
Doctor :  
No, such conditions are not due to masturbation
User :   i think he must be doing this for the past one year for sure.
