It does not!: Ejaculation does not decrease or waste or lower growth hormones. Specifically hgh or testosterone!

Not at all: The hormones that regulate growth and sexual development / function are not impacted by ejaculation. Very frequent ejaculation could temporarily degrade the quality of the sperm produced (as more are "rushed" into use based on demand), but 2-3 days "rest" will resolve this. Don't forget a healthy diet and lifestyle.
