No: Do not worry that your reproductive system is being significantly affected. The only thing might be around frequency. Depending on what you mean, one's sperm count can be less if masturbating to ejaculation several times a day, or even daily.The other thing i would normally explore is what specific things you were worried about.Relationship issues may also be important to address.
