You mean masturbate??
User :   yes
Doctor :  
I shall explain it to you.
Doctor :  
The general physic of a person is maintained by a few factors
Doctor :  
factors such as diet and hormones and the general equlibrium.
Doctor :  
When any of these factors are affected, physic gets altered.
User :   ok. but I feel weak only when I do masturbate, esp a day after I do it
Doctor :   I shall come back to it.
Doctor :  
In your case the deterioration in the body mass is related to the hormone factors and not the masturbation.
User :   oh ok. why do I feel weak a day after I do it though?
Doctor :   The functions of the testicles decrease after 35 years and so the testosterone secretion reduces resulting in the thinning of the muscle.
Doctor :   This could be a psychological feeling.
Doctor :   It would be the negativism that you may be thinking
Doctor :  
as masturbation is not known to cause any ill effects on the body apart from the sexual pleasure.
User :   how can I do to get better, ?
User :   glad to hear it :) but my body is really weak, cant lift my laptop bag. so worried
