Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The frequent sperm ejaculations can decrease the sperm count temporarily but if the frequency of masturbation is restricted, then the count returns to normal.
There are no long term detrimental effects of masturbation on the sperm count or quality. It does not decrease the possibility of fathering a child.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.

Thanks for the quick answer. The given revert says that "if the frequency of masturbation is restricted, then the count returns to normal". May i know as to how many hours/days its takes for the count to return to normality.

Apart from fathering a child does this (frequent sex) have side effects like reduction in energy or any other bone or nerve problems

Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
If the frequency of ejaculations is restricted to thrice a week then the count returns to normal in 3 months.
There is no side effect like reduction in energy or bone or nerve related problems.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
