Teenager. Habit of masturburating. Ill effects?

I am 16 years old and I masturbate since I was 13 daily but now since 6 months I am trying to avoid it after hearing lot of things and side effects now I don't do it but when I do it, I do it about 3 times that day then stop for another 3 weeks or 2 then again I really would like to stop because I heard many things and it may lead to death and u won't have children when u get married.
Please doctor help me by letting me know from you and about my age to do such thing and if what I'm doing is good and healthy.

Hi there ~

I understand your concern. The urge to masturbate is a normal physiological phenomenon. Sexual issues after marriage are quite common. However, anything in excess, even masturbation is not good for you. Although, you might need to consult an psychiatrist to find out if you have any difficulties in your libido or have other mental health concerns like depression that is resulting in your premature ejaculation. Also you should know that masturbation does not lead to death and it won't lead to you not having children. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a lovely day!
