Psychiatrist 's  Response
welcome to Healthcare Magic.

Masturbation is considered as a part of normal human sexual behaviour. It is is very common among young males with prevalence more than 80%. It does not have any bad effects on health and does not lead to any medical problems.

Some people have many wrong ideas about masturbation - that it causes ill effects on health like nervous weakness, reduced energy, etc or sexual problems like impotence in the future. All this is not true and these are just myths and misconceptions in society.

If you are having excessive worry regarding masturbation or if you have guilt related to masturbation habit, then I would advise you to consult a Psychiatrist for counseling and education.

Wish you all the best.
