Hello. i am a 20 year old male. i started to masturbate heavily for the past 10 months. i used to do it at least 3 times a day.

i now suffer from very weak erections and prostate like symptoms (some pain, some burning).

i was wondering has anyone else dealt with this and beat this? i know that people will say go ahead and masturbate its not bad for you. well over doing it is. it will create imbalances in the body. there are a lot people that have gotten themselves into this position. has anyone made it out?

thank you.

User avatar Hello,It is not masturbation but the guilt associated with this is the cause for feeling weak,weak erections and vauge symptoms.Modern medicine considers masturbation as a safe sexual practice since the chances of spreading or receiving diseases in the most sexually active phases of life like adolescence becomes less.So you should get over the fear first and convince your self that you are normal with masturbation.Ok?
