Is it possible for me to have a child in future as I have masturbated a lot in the last 4 yrs. The condition was so serious that I used to masturbate twice daily. But at that time I didn't knew anything that what was going on bcoz I was very small in my age. Now I am really very worried about this that what will happen to me in future. Please help.

You are still young and your masturbation will not affect your having a child. 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.

Nothing will happen, don't you worry, enjoy your life. Try to control masturbation, reduce it to 3-4 times a week. Don't eat junk food, red meat. Almond milk- 10-15 almonds soaked in water Take 1 glass of hot milk (cow) Pinch of ginger powder Pinch of choti elachi (cardamom) Pinch of kesar Peel almonds and grind it. Consume daily Thanks.
