Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Masturbation is considered as a part of normal human sexual behaviour and is very common among young males. 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 your case, the forgetfullness is not due to your masturbation. It could rather be due to your unecessary anxiety. However, masturbation can become a problem when it becomes excessive and addictive. It can result in excessive guilt and anxiety, and therefore affect the psychological well being of the individual.

So, I would advise you to consult a psychiatrist for a detailed psychological assessment and further counselling regarding your problem.

Wish you all the best.
