See doctor: You loss of libido is not from masturbating. The only way that that could possibly happen would be if you were masturbating to ever increasing intensity of pornography. That could cause a psychological loss of libido. Otherwise, for a general loss of libido you need to have your testosterone levels checked. You should have both free and total testosterone level checked by your family doctor and then if everything is normal you should see a psychologist who specializes in sex therapy.
