Does masturbation cause hernia?

Hey doc, my name is Alexander. My question is can to much masturbating like 6-8 times a day can cause inguinal hernia ? I feel pain in right groin all the way to the right testicle. Sometimes when I hold my penis the right testicle is contracting by himself, I don t have any control. It s like making contraction and going up and I feel pain, but usually don t feel that much pain. Thanks. I really apriciate your answer and your time.

Dear
Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

I went through your details. I suggest you not to worry much. You must be aware that masturbation is no sin. Masturbation is natural and even animals do it. For an youngster of age group 13 to 17 masturbation everyday is normal. After that also it is normal but people get engaged in some other activities like games, education, career etc which are more engaging and energy consuming. There are people who masturbate daily even at middle adulthood. The trouble is lack of knowledge and the anxiety arising out of it. Feeling guilty will trigger anxiety. Masturbation is not unhealthy and cannot be a cause to hernia.

Psychotherapy techniques should suit your requirement. If you require more of my help in this aspect, Please post a direct question to me in this URL. http://goo.gl/aYW2pR. Make sure that you include every minute details possible. I shall prescribe the needed psychotherapy techniques.

Hope this answers your query. Available for further clarifications.
Good luck.
