Hi,charan,thanks for query.Please understand that masturbation can not lead to stunted growth.After the age of 14-15 years that is when you attain puberty,you height can not increase.At this age the end of long bones fuses under the influence of hormones and you stop growing in height.So please remove fear about masturbation.bye.
