I have constitutional delayed puberty.I masturbated more than couple of times during age 12, 13.Can that effect puberty, bone structure, hormones etc.?

It isn't harmful, as the body goes through similar effects during regular sex with a partner (but too much of anything may become a problem). Masturbation does not stunt height, cause hair loss or gray hair, make you weak, create heart problems, lower testosterone, affect virginity, lower fertility, change your weight, or damage eyes. ...Read more

However, brain size isn't as important as synaptic development. A great deal of "fine tuning" goes on long after physical growth has stopped. Most reorganization occurs in childhood, up through late adolescence, but this process never really ends. ...Read more
