So, what are the deadly adverse effects of (over) Masturbation?

Hand Practice and Health. It’s Benefits and Side-Effects I Hindi

There are adverse effects on health associated with over-masturbation. Check out the adverse effects:

  1. Lowering sperm count: The sperm count in a male reduces with over-masturbation. This makes it difficult to have a baby at a later stage. There is a requirement for more sperm to be produced for refilling the sperm tank, hence you need to conserve your sperm count for ejaculation, which is best when masturbation is done at a healthy count.
  2. Joint Pains & Weak Nervous System: Over masturbation produces overstimulation of the sex hormones in the male body. This in turn causes the leg muscles to become weak over time. The functioning of the brain is also adversely affected by the overproduction of serotonin, dopamine, and acetylcholine.
  3. Weak Muscular strength: When you ejaculate & discharge Semen, you literally lose protein. Semen is 50% protein by weight and contains a variety of nutrients to protect the sperm cells from damage. And every frequent ejaculation, you lose that amount of protein and everyone knows that Muscular strength requires a high amount of protein in the body. Hence Over-Masturbation weakens muscular strength.
    Adverse Effects of Masturbation
  4. Hair thinning and baldness & light beard growth: It has been observed that males who masturbate excessively have less growth of hair on their beard or thin hair or no hair at all. Beard growth is related to the activity of the sex hormone testosterone. Many medical studies show that masturbation regularly may reduce testosterone levels. Stimulation of hair follicles in the area of Dihydrotestosterone leads to the growth of beard. Over-masturbation leads to loss of protein in the body and this in turn causes hair loss. Excess Masturbation = loss of protein = impact on testosterone and DHT = gradual HAIR LOSS. For a detailed medical theory of baldness caused by masturbation can be read here.
  5. Fatigue – Feeling tired all the time: People with an addiction to masturbation experience a feeling of tiredness all the time. It is pretty simple to understand why it happens. Masturbating every day or multiple times a day makes you lose important protein and calorie which is required to function the body, moreover, with ejaculation, the hormone “oxytocin” is released which gives the sleepy feeling. Hence Over-masturbating imbalances these important things and the body feels lazy, tired, and sleepy even during working hours!
  6. Premature ejaculation: When done in excessive amounts, masturbation teaches you how to reach an orgasm more easily. For many young adults, the addicted to porn and masturbation can cause an imbalance of stress hormones, GABA, Serotonin, and Dopamine. Put simply, over-masturbation will lead to sexual under-performance by way of premature ejaculation, as well as other sexual problems.

  7. Soft Erections / Impotency: Overstimulation of the penis can lead to the persistent softness of an erection, while the disappearance of a morning erection can signify a hormonal imbalance. For men who over-masturbate, weakness can occur because of a hormonal imbalance. While having actual sex the weak erection won’t be able to penetrate in partner resulting in unhappiness and unsatisfactory experience for her and guilt & shame for you.
  8. Eye Vision problems: This is because excessive masturbation causes damage in the inner layer of the eye, affecting the cones and rods of the eye. Men who ejaculate multiple times a day experience deficiencies in these neurochemicals necessary for healthy eyes and sexual function.

How to limit or control excessive masturbation??

“Some people masturbate to temporarily replace their partners when they are absent, whereas some people do that to temporarily live in the present.”
― Mokokoma Mokhonoana

If you are not quite sure about the different ways in which you can control excessive masturbation, then here are a few tips to help you knock off your habit and bring it to a normal level.


You can only leave/limit masturbating ‘IF’ you change your Habits

  • Very first is Stop focusing on symptoms and believe that you can revive your life
  • Get some hobby – Outdoor Sports, Chess, Gym, Painting, Evening Pet walk or whatever you like
  • Make your day as Busier as you can (not stressed). Be Busy!
  • Limit your solitude – be with someone 🙂
  • Stop watching Porn and erotic adult movies/comics
  • Stop getting the urge of Masturbating: Stop noticing the inner (sexual) part of hot girls – Stop getting horny by visualizing intimacy with your neighbor, classmate, lecturer, colleague, female friend, and friend’s girlfriend. In public places as well, ignore noticing girls (and their features), and don’t think about movie actresses. Divert your attention to your cell phone, and read news, and blogs about your job industry. Just say no to sexual thought & Divert!
  • Meditation: Meditation is a boon to humankind, start meditating and you will start gaining self-control. Not just for controlling the over-masturbation habit, but for overall well-being and peace of mind, a sharp brain, and a healthy body. Meditation can give you a new birth no matter what your present situation is in terms of health or wealth. Meditation = Inner Peace = Prosperity
    Meditation helps Health, Masturbation

Remember, as our life is determined in terms of – “How many breaths”
Same way, our sexual life is determined in terms of – “How many Ejaculations”

Self-control is the Key to Balanced, Happy & Satisfactory Life 🙂

  1. Hi…what happens to my sperm count later when I grew up into an adult if I frequently masturbate now when I am 14 years old?
    Is it possible to get good sperm counts back? Are there any ways?

  2. Sex plays an important role in our lives. It keeps us healthy and happy. Whether you have a long-term partner or you’re enjoying casual sexual activity, it will be a source of self-confidence and happiness.

    If you can’t have sex, however, chances are that your mood will be quite different. Men suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED) will quite often experience anxiety and even depression due to their inability to perform.

    • Researchers have shown that crossing the limit of masturbation will only lead to hair loss and thinning of hair. This is one possible outcome that you will have to face with (over) masturbation. But, I think with 4 times a week you re not jeopardized. Don’t overdo it though!

    • It’s not harmful to you bcoz losing 4 times a week can be considered as normal frequency on the source of internet .

  7. Hand practice or masturbation, when done in moderation, has no disadvantages. But if you do it in excess, there are a whole bunch of problems you may face. Just hand practice 3-4 times a week and you’re good to go

    • A boy (actully ny friend)who is 16 masturbates once a week & he was continuously doing it from last three years & now he is suffering from myopia -5d ,weak nervous system, weak muscles,& very irritating one gynecomastia.

      It harmed him this much when he did it only once a week. He was a healthy boy when he was 12 & now he is an underweight guy. How can he control that much? Will he be alright if he controls?

      • Gynecomastia can be common and temporary in boys going through puberty. Masturbation does not cause gynecomastia. Up to 2/3 of boys going through puberty develop some form of gynecomastia.

  21. But my penis is hard most of the time when I’m home alone particularly, I’ll masturbate, take a nap and wake up with a boner again! I’m not complaining, I actually like it, but I should probably not do it so much. 2-5 times a day might be a lot to most people but I used to do it 10-15 times a day. I never knew it was bad. Don’t judge me just because I can. Now I’m pretty hard while just making this comment…

  22. First of all there is no normal or worst frequency, everyone body is different with different levels of testosterone and everyone have a different life style.
    I started when I was maybe 15 – 17, can’t remember exactly but I was week, skinny till 21-23, after that I started working out daily , I went to gym regularly without care of getting any results and I started eating healthy. And also keep doing HP 4-5 times a week. Muscle growth was slow but now I’m 27, I gained good amount of muscles, and I’m still jerking 4-5 times , sometimes when I’m really busy the. 2-3 times and when I’m free mostly then 7-8 times a week.
    My advice will be to control your self and if can’t control then do have a proper healthy diet along strength training.
    Eat almonds, walnuts, chicken, mutton, beef , vegetables, whole wheat bread, take multi vitamins.
    If you give proper nutrition to the body and do exercises. Then your body will get used to your jerking routine and will make more sperm.
    But if your diet is bad and you’re doing nothing all day. Then doing it even twice a week is a lot.
    If you care about your body, it will care about you 😜 enjoy.
