User :   actually i am age of 30 .. going to marry in couple of month ..
Doctor :   Ok
User :   but the fact is : i was doing masterburate from more than 10 yrs onwards .. even i do these day also .. within 2 days interval (max) ..
Doctor :   Ok
User :   would like to know , if it will cause any sexual problem with my partner ?
User :   i meant semen or sperm will be weak ?
Doctor :   Medical science has yet to prove any medical problems directly caused by masturbation alone.
Doctor :   Smoking, alcohol consumption, increased stress/anxiety and rarely hormone disturbances and local factors such as varicocele are few factors apart from medical illness such as diabetes, thyroid issues
Doctor :   which are commonly responsible for sexual problems.
User :   i dont have any bad habit to take alcohol etc
Doctor :   Masturbation has no effects on sexuality.
User :   i meant , since i do regularly masterburate , either techincally semen or sperm will be weak ?
Doctor :   No.
User :   something i heard abt sperm count .. if we do masterburate more , sperm count will be down , is it ?
User :   either myself i can check something to ensure semen and sperm are healthy ?
Doctor :   There has been a tussle between allopathic doctors and Ayurveda doctors with regards to this query.
Doctor :   Ayurveda doctors believe masturbation can induce such problems.
Doctor :   However as far as previous records and studies is concerned.
Doctor :   No such problems are been reported where
Doctor :   sperm productions or sexual problems are directly related to masturbation.
Doctor :   Hence you need not worry.
User :   sometimes , not feeling good
User :   but one thing i see , semen is producing enough as per normal health
Doctor :   If you are physically fit, mentally not stressed out, do not smoke or consume alcohol.
User :   but not sure abt sperm , either its healthy or not
Doctor :   there shouldn't be a problem with sperm production.
User :   i am physically fit , not taking smoke or alcohol
User :   can i see the sperm in naked eye ?
User :   any clue where i can feel my semen is healthy by looking in naked eye ?
Doctor :   It is good that you don't smoke and drink alcohol.
Doctor :   No you cannot see sperms through naked eye.
Doctor :   One requires microscope and preferrably a high field one to see a sperm.
User :   do u think , should i go ahead for test of seprm count ?
Doctor :   The best way to know about quantity and quality of sperm production is by a test, sperm analysis test.
User :   what i wanted , before marry , need to resolve , if any techincal problem
Doctor :   You don't need the test officially, but if you would like to know the quality and quantity of the sperms, you can go ahead and get the test.
Doctor :   You can get this test at any reputed laboratory or hospital.
User :   noramlly , how many days , it should take for healthy sperm ?
User :   let say if today i do masterburate , when i should go ahead for test
Doctor :   Let me explain this in simple terms.
Doctor :   Sperm once produced in the testis is stored.
Doctor :   it is released by an act of masturbation or sexual activity or through a night fall.
Doctor :   so masturbation releases stored sperms and not the ones that are produced freshly.
Doctor :   Hence there are no time limits to get sperm analysis.
Doctor :   And for best results, test should be performed early in the morning, when testicular functions are maximum.
Doctor :   Have you followed what I have suggested?
User :   yep
User :   should i stop masterburate for few days to get better result of sperm healthy or count ?
User :   before i go ahead for test
Doctor :   You can do that.
User :   mini how many days , i should wait
Doctor :   But technically, that wouldn't change the results of the test significantly.
Doctor :   Abstaining from masturbation for 48 to 72 hours will be fine.
User :   so interval should be 2-3 days
User :   right
Doctor :   Yes.
User :   ok
Doctor :   Do you have any other query?
User :   no , thats all
User :   thanks for clarifying
