Thanks for the query in XXXXXXX

Let me tell you first that "masturbation" is a normal and healthy way of attaining sexual gratification for both male and female.

It will not retard the growth.

It is considered excessive when it interferes the day to day activities of a person.

Hence you need not worry about the masturbation.

You can read my article in Times of India about masturbation @
