Hard to say: First I am glad you are not hurting yourself anymore. Emotions can be strong and confusing at times. Masturbation can have some positive effects but as with any activity if your mood worsens or you spend too much time in this activity you may consider visiting with a therapist. http://www.webmd.com/women/features/female-masturbation-5-things-know
