A 40-year-old member asked:

Is it necessary to masturbate in order to produce fresh sperm a couple of days before having sex, to be more fertile?

Specializes in Pediatric Urology
No way: Most urologists + fertility drs suggest abstaining from sex for three days before partner ovulates to optimize sperm content in the semen. No need to masturbate and waste good sperm. Good luck.
