Masturbation: You are not losing hair because of masturbation. If that were the case every man your age would be in the same boat. Most men masturbate regularly. Most young men masturbate very frequently, even more than you report. Masturbation is a normal human activity and there is no medical reason to limit this activity. And, as you have learned here. Masturbation has no connection to your hair follicles.

No relation: Sorry, your genetics are likely the issue--if your parents / lineage had early hair loss, so will you. Some medication options now available may help--see your Dr.

Blaming baldness on Masturbation is the opposite of being a physician. This is propaganda at its worst. It represents using fear and self esteem against a patient. Any physician promoting this propaganda should be stripped of their license.
