Brief Answer: Masturbation is not harmful. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for your query. I appreciate your efforts for medical consultation in so much distress. Important aspects of your query are: • 20 year old female • Concern related to masturbation. Masturbation is considered as a part of normal human sexual behavior and it is very common among young males. Worry related to masturbation is a common problem faced by youngsters, due to ignorance or due to non availability of sex education. Many times those who are not aware of it discuss it with their peer group who are equally unaware of this, and the problem is compounded by immature discussion among the peers. Therefore, please do not worry about it at all. Some people have many wrong ideas about masturbation - that it causes ill effects on health like nervous weakness, reduced energy, etc or sexual problems like impotence in the future. All this is not true and these are just myths and misconceptions. More than 80% man and woman masturbate in some point of the time. In present situation if you are not masturbating more than 3-4 times per week than there is no problem. If you are masturbating more even then it is not harmful but it is better to decrease the frequency of it. Even past history of excessive masturbating does not affect patient condition, but if you have guilt then it can increase your worry and anxiety. Final message: do not worry and enjoy masturbation whenever you do it without any guilt. I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow ups. Wish you good health. Regards, http://bit.ly/Dr-Ashish-Mittal
