If i wank a day after workinng out will it have any effect (e.g.musclar gains or endurance levels?

Depends: It depends on how often and how vigorously. For some people wanking is an aerobic and strengthening activity, because of the effort and positions involved. Some people have reported here that they experience muscle and back pains afterwards, and the assumption is a fair amount of exertion/contortion/repetition were expended.

How long does it take to recover from chronic stress disorder built up for 5.5 yrs?Does excessive masturbation(5 times a day for 13yrs) make it worse?

How long does it take to recover from chronic stress disorder built up for 5.5 yrs?Does excessive masturbation(5 times a day for 13yrs) make it worse?

Impossible to predict: I would recommend that you get into or stay in therapy for your condition. I don't know what type of stress you had so i'm not going to recommend any particular psychotherapy but find a therapist that you are comfortable working with. It is also impossible to predict how long it will take to recover from any stress reaction. One lasting five and half years makes prediction even more difficult. Masturbation would have no effect on any of this. ...Read more

May work for now, but when you're older you'll likely kick off faster than your pals who aren't smoking. Give it a lot of thought, a lot of thought, a lot of thought, a lot of thought, a lot of thought, a lot of ...... ...Read more
