Thank you for posting your query.

I understand your concern.

You had a craniotomy done two months ago, it will be healed by now. So you can go ahead and have a normal life.

You can do everything, except heavy lifting and heavy exercises, and those activities which were restricted by your neurosurgeon.

I would like to reassure you that you will not have any problem whatsoever if you masturbate now.

I hope I have answered your query. Please do write to me if you have any further queries.

Hi again XXXXXXX,

Thank you for writing back to me.

Masturbation is a perfectly harmless method of relieving your sexual feelings. It does not have any bad effects on health as long as it is not overdone.

Three to four times a week is perfectly fine, I assure again that it is a natural thing so don't be worried about it affecting your health in any way.

Wishing you good health.

Thank you again for writing back to me.

I'm sorry for delay in answering your query due to my heavy work schedule.

First of all I would like to tell you that premature ejaculation is not a physical problem. Ejaculation or the orgasm is basically both a psychological as well as physical phenomenon, for you to achieve orgasm or climax and to have orgasm your brain needs to be aroused sexually to a state where you can no longer hold it back.

This is achieved by the constant and repetitive stimulation of the genitalia as well as a continuing thought process which keeps you interested in the act.

One more important thing is that the physical state of arousal can never be achieved just by stimulation.

State of arousal is purely controlled by your emotions and your mind, so there is nothing wrong in having a premature ejaculation.

Having a premature ejaculation simply means that you get sexually aroused, all you need to do is get used to the feeling, and don't let the physical stimulus override your brain too much.

You can achieve this by controlling your thoughts and may be stopping the physical stimulus for a few seconds so that the state of arousal comes down a little bit.

You can also try to indulge in sexual intercourse half an hour to one hour after you masturbate or else you can try to have intercourse again after an hour or so.

Coming to developing good muscles.

You can do walking, jogging, cycling and swimming to improve the muscle strength as well as bulk, but let me remind you these to develop good muscle mass by these means it takes quite a long time but in the end you will be healthy and you will develop endurance muscles, by that I mean you will have muscles which will not get tired easily.

Alternatively you can go to gym and workout regularly, by working out in the gym you will definitely develop good muscle mass but you will get tired soon.

I hope I have cleared your doubts.

Wishing you good health.
