I am a guy and if I masturbated, would it cause any harm to my fertility?

Possibly: Masturbation like frequent heterosexual sex (if done too frequently while attempting to get pregnant) could cause issues with fertility if one is attempting to cause pregnancy. It is simply an issue of sperm count and quality of sperm. Essentially you could deplete the count and hinder fertility. Otherwise, masturbation is not going to be a cause of infertility. ...Read more

The reason is that more fluid is reabsorbed during abstinence. There is nothing "spiritual" about telling or believing untruths about your body; growing up is difficult enough as it is. Think about the girl you'll marry. Cheers. ...Read more

Masturbation does it affect fertility of a woman ?

Masturbation does it affect fertility of a woman  ?

In some cases yes.: Females are more likely to concieve if they orgasm shortly after insemination. Uterine contractions that occur during orgasm and the quality of cervical mucus produced can aid sperm in gaining entry into the uterus. If you are able to achieve orgasm through masturbation or with your partner's help shortly after intercourse with the pelvis positioned to retain semen, that is ideal. ...Read more
