Brief Answer:

Masturbation may not cause erection problem.

Detailed Answer:


As far as masturbation is considered, it is a common practice followed by many people.

It may cause thickening of skin over the penis, and may affect sexual performance.

But, this is seen after many years of regular masturbation, that may be around 20- 30 years.

So, if you are so concerned about that, you can consult your doctor and get examined.

As far as erection is considered, it is mentioned that you would get early morning erections normally.

I can understand that you have sustaining problem, that can be helped by PDE5 inhibitors like sildenafil.

Regarding the discharge from your penis, you can consult your doctor or you can get your semen analysis done to rule out any abnormality.

I would suggest you consult your doctor for prescription based medicine of sildenafil.

Take care
