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 in their teenage. 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.

So, the problems which you are experiencing are not due to your masturbation practice in childhood. Regarding your problems, I would advise you to see a psychiatrist for a detailed psychological assessment and further management.

Wish you all the best.
