Hi,

Regarding female masturbation and infertility. There are less research. In concise infertile women had lower percentage in desire and arousal domains and lower frequency of intercourse and masturbation.

So we can concentrate on effects of PCOS and other hormonal issue you are facing can be reason for your delay.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. S.R.Raveendran,

Hi I am Stella Mary,23 yrs female.weight -60 kg.height-165 cm. I got married 11 months back. for the fist 9 months my husband and I were not planning to have a baby and we avoided by using condoms and safe period. Now for the Past two months we are planning to have a baby but i didn t conceive. My problems are: 1) i never attain orgasm during sex even after 15-20 min,though my husband attains. but i always attain orgasm if i masturbate. -Is this a problem with me or my husband fails to stimulate me? -though i don t attain orgasm with him,i feel satisfied and it gives me a pleasure.but Can i get pregnant only if i attain orgasm? 2) my cycles are mostly regular-30 to 32 days(since i attained menarche),normal flow,no dysmenorrhea.Occasionally when i am deeply emotionally stressed periods gets delayed further by 2 or 3 days,but never more than 35 days.all my cycles are initially slightly painful(not severe dysmenorrhea).i have mid cycle pain,irritability and breast tenderness just before my periods. -am i suffering from PMS? - can i assume that i am ovulating because of all these?or should i get tests done? -it has been just two months since we are planning for a baby.so should i wait more or can we consult a doctor after a month,since it is one year after marriage? THANK YOU

My husband has been on Treatment to raise his T levels. First he used Testim gel for several months, now he is using injections, which he gives himself at home. My concern is we would like to conceive, and we know these treatments can lower sperm count. He is reluctant to do a Semen analysis, but I think it may be the only way to know if conception is possible. The Urologist he is using has suggested it, and also wants him to start HCG which can raise his sperm count. All very confusing, can you enlighten me?
