Thanks for posting your query.

Masturbation is a physiological act and done by most of teens and young adults. It is absolutely a normal thing and it will not have any effect on general health.

Even semen quality, production etc.nothing is affected.

Semen production is a continuous process.When ever by masturbation or sexual act it is released,the new production replaces it.

Please, rest assured that due to masturbation you will not have any problems in future life.

I hope this helps.

Please write again if you have something more to ask.

In case you do not have further query, please accept the answer.

Wishing you all the best for time to come.

Good to hear from you again.

Yes, your sperms will be in enough quantity and of good quality.

Masturbation does not lead to any change in quantity and quality of sperms.

What ever information that you have from any source is misleading and not correct.

Please do not worry.
