Can daily masturbation cause infertility?

Can daily masturbation cause infertility?

No: That's just one more untruth that somebody told you to frighten you. Essentially all teenaged males enjoy their bodies in this way several times a week.

I demand truthfulness from others and hope you will do the same. Best wishes. ...Read more

Heavy masturbate can cause infertility. Is this true?

No: This is one more unfounded scare story in a world that's difficult enough as-is. Long abstinence results in resorption of some of your fluid but not your sperms, so the sperm count goes up; if you ejaculate often, the sperms are diluted by the fluid that makes them work. That's the basis of the claim that it "lowers your sperm count." embrace being an adult. ...Read more

Sperm count goes down if ejaculation is more frequent simply because there is more fluid available to dilute them. Especially, embrace your emerging ability to love wisely ; well. ...Read more
