Brief Answer: Natural act , no treatment required. Detailed Answer: Dear Friend. Hi , I am Dr Anshul Varshney , I have read your query in detail , I understand your concern. Masturbation is a normal human act and response to your age. There is nothing wrong with it. It doesn't lead to any problems. Only problem it can cause is , anxiety which can disturb your sex life later on. This happens if you think you have done something wrong in past , which can affect your sexual life. So , that anxiety may become a problem. Don't read irrelevant forums and articles on internet. They misguide you. In fact you don't need to quit it , just do it in moderation as excess of everything is bad. Don't get into wrong influences advising you to take drugs for this problem. You don't need any drugs. Trust me , it is a natural act and doesn't require any treatment. This is my personal opinion based on details available here. If you still have any query you may please ask me. Stay Healthy. Dr Anshul Varshney , MD
