No: People do not gain nor lose testosterone due to masturbation. That means masturbating more often will not cause a testosterone problem. Likewise, a lack of masturbation does not cause a testosterone problem.
Dr. James Krick
Urology 36 years experience
No: There is no known relationship between frequency of ejaculation and production of testosterone

Get healthy: With diet, weight loss, exercise, avoiding opiates and anabolics. Check w/your doctor to find the cause it it does exist. Don't listen to friends, tv, radio or the internet scams. They don't work and just waste your money.
