I am 40 years old. I have a 14 year old son. I am sure he masturbates daily. Does masturbation will reduce his height growth as he is just 4 foot now. Please help is masturbation good or bad for him at this height growing age?

Just leave it. Nothing happens even though he masturbates. This is age related phenomena especially in the teenage group. This is a temporary phenomena as he grows up and the habit subsides. See to it he won't go for bad habits. Masturbation is not related to other health conditions. Its habit of psychological status. His height and other health condition is not related to masturbation. Only thing is try to divert his attention by engaging him some other activity like more studies, sports, some work etc. Most of the time don't leave him alone.

I have a regular problem of acidity. It reduces if I take pantadoc. I mean I can eat anything while I am on pantadoc no matter how spicy it will be:). Can I take pantadoc on daily basis? is there any side effects?

M.H.C.T.C
Oncologist, Pune
Hi, 1-thnks for the query-2-after going through your issue indepth, I advise to interact to my inbox-for private consultation-as your problem-is long-standing and regular. 3-its wrong to continue drug like this-if there is no relief after short term treats, as this causes-sever side-effects if taken for long time-when it is not relieving the basic cause of acidity. 4-hence you need 2-3 interactions to fix the cause of the acidity, after which I would plan the right treats for you.

Dear Lybrate User, The size of penis depends on four factors:- 1) HEIGHT OF THE PERSON :- Every organ of a taller person posses greater dimension than those of a shorter person. 2) TESTOSTERONE HORMONE:- Less secretion of this hormone leads to underdevelopment of sexual organs 3) SEXUAL DISEASES:- Patients suffering from Erectile dysfunction often complaints of short penis. 4) FATTY TUMMY:- With every increase of 6 kg in weight, the waistline is increased up to 2 cm. This fatty layer of abdomen conceals 2 cm of the length of penis by surrounding it. Kindly remember that the penis will not remain erected all time. It will remain contracted & flaccid throughout the day. However, you can observe the increase in the width & length of your penis whenever you undergo erection. The minimum size of an erected penis required for intercourse is 3 inches. A penis is composed of three highly vascular muscles namely two Corpus Cavernosus muscles & one Corpus Spongiosum muscle. In normal condition when an individual undergoes sexual arousal blood flow is directed towards those muscles of penis. As a result the muscles of penis gets pumped up & increase in size. This phenomenon is externally manifested as the erection of penis. There are numerous videos in YouTube which demonstrate this mechanism of erection. The plan of action behind increasing the size of penis is to increase the size of those underlying muscles of penis. Normally a muscle undergoes an increase in size when it gets hypertrophied due to weight training. Weight-training leads to the pumping of blood to the muscle resulting in increased protein synthesis in the muscles. This applies to every muscles of human body & the muscles of penis are no exception. But it is quite impossible for the vascular muscles of penis to undergo any type of weight-training. Here the PENIS DEVELOPER SET comes in handy. The PENIS DEVELOPER SET helps in pumping blood to those vascular muscles without any type of weight-training. The PENIS DEVELOPER SET creates a partial vacuum around the penis which leads in rushing of blood to the vascular muscles of penis. As a result the vascular muscles of penis gets pumped. Continuous use of the PENIS DEVELOPER SET leads to hypertrophy of the muscles of penis which results in the increase in the length & width of the muscles of penis and thus the penis looks bigger. There is no specific medicine to increase the size of penis. However, you may have come across a number of gimmicking advertisement of medicines which claim to increase the size of penis. Do not fall prey for any such advertisement because the penis would not get bigger unless there is an increase of the size of the underlying vascular muscles of penis. An effective increase in the length & width of the penis has been noted within 2 months in those patients who have used the Penis Developer Set for 30 minutes daily. You can buy the vacuum operated PENIS DEVELOPER SET from your local medical appliances store or you can get it by ordering for my PENIS DEVELOPER SET & OIL via Lybrate.
