Brief Answer:
Masturbation does not affect fertility of a man .

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for query .

It is natural and normal for every man to masturbate at he age of adolescence .It is a safest way of achieving sexual satisfaction without a female partner .

It has been proved scientifically that masturbation does not affect fertility of a man .However frequent and habitual masturbation leads to quality of erection and other sexual problems.Try to reduce the frequency of masturbation by keeping yourself busy in activities like sports,reading ,social work etc so that you will not get free time to masturbate.

Thanks and Regards.
