Will masturbation affect the stricture in the urethra and cause obstruction in urine flow ?

Hi, I do have stricture in my urethra and therefore obstructed urine flow . It has been recently operated and dilated. Right now the flow is little better but it usually has the tendency (general view) to get narrowed again after some time. I also have the habit of doing masturbation once in 3/4 days. Therefore, I just wanted to know whether doing masturbation affects or worses the condition by any chance.

Hi
mastrubation does not have any effect on Urethral stricture. So kindly remove the misconception that it will worsen stricture.
Strictures are known for recurrences, so they require repeated dilatation, if it fails to respond to repeated strictures then it will require Urethroplasty(Open Surgery)
