Dear XXXXXXX XXXXXXX
Thanks for the query .

As I could understand from your query is that you are very much worried about the bad effects of masturbation.

I should state that masturbation is a normal and safest method of relieving sexual feelings and having pleasure in both men and women.

Masturbation will not cause any health problems at present or in the future.

The desire for masturbation or intercourse is the effect of hormone testosterone. Since you are having desire for masturbation which means that your hormonal level is normal.

Anything in excess is not recommended. Excess masturbation is defined as, if it affects day to day activities. Excess masturbation occurs because of idle mind and body. In that case, you can divert your mind by engaging more in studies or in other activities like yoga or other hobbies.

Since you are perfectly normal and the only thing abnormal is that you are too much worried about masturbation, I do not advice you to take any medication to get rid of a normal physiological function.

Hope I cleared all your doubts. I am still available for follow up.

With regards.

Dear Mr. XXXXXXX XXXXXXX

Thanks for writing back again.

The normality of the frequency of masturbation changes with person to person just like the ability of a man to have sexual intercourse differ with man to man. Some man can do sexual intercourse twice or thrice a day. Some men cannot do more than once in a day. These depend on so many factors including the hormone testosterone. So do not bother that you are doing masturbation twice daily.

Sexual Health is an important aspect of Health. Sexual act (either masturbation or intercourse) is considered as one of the most effective solution for relieving stress.

You can get your doctor prescribe Tab. Alprazolam 5mg at night for a week to relieve your mental agony.

Hope I have cleared all your doubts. I will be available for further queries if any.

Regards.

Dear XXXXXXX XXXXXXX

Thanks for writing again.

It would be unethical and inappropriate to prescribe you scheduled drugs without doing a proper examination. It is not a OTC medication, as this medication may be habit-forming and should be used only by prescription after physical examination.

I am very sorry but, you need to get the prescription from any general practitioner in your locality.

Wish you good health.

Regards.
