There is no symptom due to masturbation

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for using healthcaremagic.

Fortunately masturbation is natural replica of sexual activity and it is completely free of any bad or side effects. Other than this it is more safe than natural intercourse as there is no risk of any sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy.

If you practice it excessively there might be some tiredness or muscle soreness which can occur with any kind of excessive muscular activity otherwise it is completely safe.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Edaward,
Thanks for reverting back to me.

Transient problem with erection is very common and it could not be labelled a erectile dysfunction. Other than if you are not able to maintain erection on regular basis it indicates that you may be having other issues such as performance anxiety which is very common among youngsters.

I request you to provide further details like any systemic disease or medication which you are taking currently.

This will help me to identify the cause of your problem so appropriate action can be taken.

Brief Answer:
Please get following reports

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back to HCM.

If you are not receiving any medication or do not suffer from any systemic diseases we need to do comprehensive evaluations to find out the cause of problem.

If I could have been your doctor my first strategy will be to rule out any hormonal problem as they are the most common cause of such problem next to systemic diseases and medications.

I request you to get your hormone profile done including serum LH, FSH, Testosterone and TSH.

Thanks and Regards
Dr Ashok
