Brief Answer:
masturbation does not cause any physical problem, it is safe

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for writing to us. I can understand your concern.

First of all clarification about masturbation.

Masturbation is natural and normal thing. It is done by 95% of the males in the world, mostly before marriage as well as when wife is away, in menses or pregnant after marriage. It is not at all harmful. Frequency of masturbation done by an individual varies from once a day to once a week. It depends upon individual libido, wish and timing. It neither causes any weakness nor any problem in sexual activity.

Your problem does not related to masturbation directly. Frequency of masturbation is quite appropriate. I need more information to help you better.

- What is your age?

- Since when are you doing masturbation?

- Since when problem is there?

- In which position do you masturbate?

- How much time do you take to complete one act of masturbation?

- Do you feel orgasm (it is a feeling with immense pleasure when ejaculation happens) ?

- What is your weight and height?

For symptom of heating up of body and limbs Serum vitamin B12 level and thyroid should be checked.

Hope I have answered your query, I will be happy to help further.
Regards,
Dr.Chintan Solanki.

Brief Answer:
no need to worry,no serious problem likely,need to rule put physical cuase

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for follow up. Sorry for delayed response.

Your masturbation habit is absolutely within normal limit. You are doing since almost 13 years. If at all problem due to MB it should have been started earlier. Your body mass index (BMI) is 22 as per your height and weight so you are physically fit.

Many of the persons feel some physical symptoms after masturbation and become concerned about the same. Very few of them have any physical problem.
And act of masturbation consumes some calorie and some exhaustion is normal after masturbation. One ejaculation of semen (2-3 ml) contains only 30-40 calories and if you do masturbation it needs some more 100 calories. This is very negligible calorie in regard to overall daily food intake.

So likely possibility is that after masturbation some exhaustion is there and due to psychological stress you feel some somatic symptoms. If vitamin deficiency is there at borderline level it may show up after exhaustion so better to evaluate.

Due to this physical symptoms you are likely not able to enjoy masturbation at optimum level and orgasm is not as joyful like before. This is purely due to psychological factors.

If wish you can take vitamin supplements otherwise no specific treatment is required.

Take care.

Answered by Dr. Chintan Solanki 11 hours later
Brief Answer:
not likely

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for question and again sorry for delayed response.

Sex and masturbation are just different methods to achieve same target.
There is no relation between them you had sex or not. Sex does not affect masturbation or health.

- "Could it be because I have not had proper sex" means you did not have experience of sex yet or you attempted but you did not succeed. I could not get your question clearly please clarify the same.

All the best.

I haven't had sex yet so maybe I am not getting emotionally satisfied?
doctor
Answered by Dr. Chintan Solanki 5 hours later
Brief Answer:
yes possibility is there

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for clarification.

If you are willing to do sex but not able to do so for any reasons and suppressing your desire for sex or partially fulfilling the desire with masturbation you may not get that high during masturbation. Sex does not mean only intercourse. Foreplay and romance are very important aspect for arousal and quality of orgasm.

And it is possible that you are doing since regularly and now at age of 29 you need more excitement to have quality of orgasm and enjoyment.

However it does not mean that you need to stop masturbation. It is better to have something than nothing. At least it gives you some pleasure and releases your sexual impulses.

If still any query there, I will be happy to answer. If not, you can close the discussion and if feasible give your feedback and rating so I can improve my service. In future you can contact me directly on this site if you wish with this link:
