Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have symptoms of addiction to masturbation which is a complete normal process and natural health phenomenon and cannot be stopped immediately. Need not to worry. I would suggest you to gradually phase it out by decreasing the frequency and divert your attention from it and its thoughts. You can engage yourself by keeping focus on your work, studies and outdoor activities and and avoid watching porn movies. You can visit psychiatrist and get counselling done as it will benefit you. Avoid taking any medication. You should take diet rich in multivitamins and drink plenty of fluids. It is due to high level of testosterone in body. Yes excess of it may cause problems at times as it leads to energy loss and make you feel lethargic and dizzy.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
