Does over-masturbation (1-2 times daily) cause loss of testosterone and growth hormone? i masturbated a lot this weekend and my penis hurts a bit!

Take it easy: Masturbation is normal at every age and pain may be related to friction or "overuse". At your age your testosterone is very rapidly replenished and it will never affect your growth hormones.

No: There is no documented evidence that masturbation has any effect on the depletion of hormone levels.

Claerly, you're falling to the victim of overindulgence and obsession; both are the most common chronic killers of life, yet, least mentioned among conversation and discussion so to severe the demand of political correctness and commercialism. To http://www.energy-ability.blogspot.com/.

I am not sure that this patient is obsessing,nor do I believe that masturbation is one of the "common chronic killers of life". Addionally, I am not sure about the" political correctness" of your comment.
