Does masturbation has adverse effects?

You might have heard many times that masturbation doesn’t affect your growth at all. Which is true but do you know when does it become harmful? Read on to know more.

Many researchers suggest that masturbation is unrelated to height and growth. They also claim that masturbation as such is not harmful, though, it must be done correctly and in a healthy way. If it is done just to avoid stress, or secondary to watching porn, it can risk you for development of sexual problems like premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction. These problems are very commonly associated with incorrect way of masturbation.

As far as frequency of masturbation is concerned there is no specific frequency of masturbation which is regarded as healthy. However, excessive masturbation is sure to have damaging effects on your health as it will affect the normal testosterone level and which may affect growth. You lose your proper amount of aggression that is required while working out in the gym, heavy lifting and other activities that require muscle power which comes from testosterone.

According to a research, restraining from masturbation for a week led to a hyper boost of 145 % in Testosterone levels. Sadly, though, the levels automatically started declining from the 8th day. In short, masturbation will never greatly affect your physical activity, it is totally on you if you want to do it or not but it will make you lose the aggression.
