Mastrubation is good for health or not

2 Doctors Answered
There is absolutely no harmful effect. There are only myths about it. One can do it whenever he/ she wants. But remember, anything in excess is not useful. If you are addicted to it, it can divert your attention and may cause loss of concentration in studies, works and family life.
Masturbation and nightfall are totally normal and natural sexual outlets. If experiencing weakness, you should pay more attention to your diet and try keeping a busy schedule. Exercising might also help in such cases.
