I am 17 year old boy. I want to know that does excess masturbation decrease my testosterone levels.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Not at all. Masturbation is not really bad; it is the addiction to it that is bad. Not even the number of years is a problem but the frequency and compulsiveness to do it is to be considered for its ill-effects. At your age you may feel it difficult and it can become addictive if you have alone time, if you obsess about it, and if you are not into relationships. The problem with addiction to this is that you may go on to prefer masturbation to heterosexual contact, even when you are married. That obviously would be an insult to your wife and will lead to a lot of conflict. Heterosexual contact is very wholesome and the physiology is made exactly for penile and vaginal contact. You will instead enjoy a poor replica of this and not know or care for the difference. The second thing that can happen with addiction is that it will become compulsive and will have no boundaries or limits, since it can be done all by yourself, whenever, wherever, and however too. The big problem a lot of children get into is the guilt around this. A useful way to discharge the energy is to get into contact games, or exercises, or even hobbies to channelize it. Also you should not spend too much time alone, and you need to keep your mind occupied with other interesting things and a lot of socializing. Even if you are not interested in marriage, for whatever reasons, it will help you to get into a friendship with a girl and enjoy the relationship where there will be a lot of excitement when you fall in love. Right now your hormones may be very active and your physiological apparatus is primed and ready for sexual stimulation. But because of your age and even otherwise it is important to develop good control and not feed into your impulses. Keeping yourself occupied and living a healthy social life are the keys to manage your sexual drives.

Till 7th month it is OK. Care need to be taken to avoid putting weight on her lower abdomen and also when she is not comfortable. Otherwise it is safe and you don't need a condom as pregnancy itself is best Contraceptive Status to a woman!

What Is Acute HIV Infection?

MD - General Medicine
Sexologist, Delhi
What Is Acute HIV Infection?

Acute HIV infection is a condition that develops within two to four weeks after someone is infected with HIV. Acute HIV infection is also known as primary HIV infection or acute retroviral syndrome. It is the primary stage of infection and lasts until the body has created antibodies against HIV. During this first stage of infection, the virus is duplicating at a rapid rate. Unlike other viruses, which the body's immune system can normally fight off, HIV can't be eliminated by the immune system. This means the virus can live in your body for extended periods of time. As HIV progresses, the virus attacks and destroys immune cells, leaving the immune system unable to fight off other diseases and infections. When this happens, the HIV infection can lead to the development of AIDS. Acute HIV is contagious. However, most people with acute HIV infection don't even know they're infected. This may be because they aren't tested for HIV on a regular basis, or because standard HIV antibody tests aren't always able to detect this stage of infection.

Hi doc I use to be always mentally exhausted. Not able to think clearly. My mind never sleeps in the night only my body sleeps. Acc to doctors its due to anxiety and I am taking ssri from last on and off from 2 years. But yet also my mind not sleeps. Always I use to get mentally exhausted.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear Priyanka, Probably you are suffering from Mixed Anxiety Depressive Disorder. That is why your doctor has advised an SSRI. SSRIs are not sedatives. They are antidepressants. They do not cause sedation as side effect also. If your mind is peaceful without any anxiety and worries, you will sleep mentally also. That is why they are prescribed. SSRIs take about 2-3 weeks to enter into brain and start working. So you don't expect any result as soon as you take. Taking on and off will not work because the tablet will not enter into brain that fast, by the time it enters, if you stop for 1 day, it will wait again to cross the blood brain barrier. Are you confused? Don't worry - take SSRI daily without fail for at least 6 months or so. If after 3 weeks no improvement, go back to doctor for increasing the dose and/or another sedating antidepressant.
