Masturbation addiction, weak erections, shrunk penis. Treatment options?

Hi I am 16 and have been masturbating since i was 13, i started off once a day then built with every now and then doing it 3-4 times but sometimes doing it no times. I have noticed symptoms such as erection not as hard and shaking if i hold my hand still a bit (not sure if thats got anything to do with it) and i think my penis may have shrunk. I think this is due to overmasturbation.To combat this, I have stopped masturbating and tried to keep my life style healthy. What could i do to reverse the effects apart from taking herbs?

Hello,
Well masturbation addiction is usually an issue and one of its biggest complications is a erectile dysfunction ( inability for your penis to erect and perform normally). The only way to avoid that is to stop masturbation and give your penis some time to reeducate itself by natural erection and natural sex with a woman. The fact that you are using your bare hands to get sexual satisfaction can cause vascular and nerve damage on your penis. Not excluding the fact that you can introduce bacteria into your urethra and cause infection.
So your decision to stop and improve your quality of life is the best
You might need to get examined by a doctor to see if you have no irreversible damage to your penis.
But for now, you should quit worrying and give your penis some time to recover.

Hope this help
