Can too much masturbating cause hairloss?

Can too much masturbating cause hairloss?

No: This is simply a lie. It's being promulgated by one the cults here in the US, with some phony "science". Male pattern baldness is genetically programmed, and if you look around you, it correlates pretty closely with how much chest hair you're naturally blessed with. Enjoying your body won't make you stupid, infertile, an unfit husband / father or anything else. Be discerning. ...Read more

Hair Loss (Definition)

Hair loss, otherwise known as alopecia, can be caused by different reasons, including damage to the hair shaft or follicles or fungal infections. There are two main types of alopecia. Alopecia areata occurs when the body's immune system attacks hair follicles and causes hair to fall out. Androgenetic (or androgenic) alopecia, on the other hand, is an inherited form of hair loss. With alopecia areata, hair can fall out in patches all over the body. With androgenetic alopecia, hair on the head first thins and then falls out. In men, this is called male pattern hair loss; in women, it is called ...Read more

Does masturbation cause growth problems and hairloss if done every day ?

Does masturbation cause growth problems and hairloss if done every day ?

No: Normal men, women, boys, and girls masturbate (it's universal). It is not 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 acne or hair loss, make you weak, create heart problems, lower testosterone, affect virginity, lower fertility, change your weight, or damage vision. ...Read more

Cultural bias or ?: I would suggest that if it were true there would be few people with hair in adulthood. This is a natural process that is part of transitioning into adulthood, and beyond. It has no demonstrated negative effects on health in general.However, various religious and cultural groups promote taboos over the process. ...Read more

It just doesn't: One of the cults is frightening teenage men with phony scientific-sounding talk suggesting that if do what comes naturally, they'll go bald. This is just a lie. You should ignore these people. Male pattern baldness is genetically programmed and closely linked to how much chest hair you're naturally blessed with -- just look around. I'm sorry that someone troubled you over this foolish stuff. ...Read more

Hey Docs! You said that masturbation does NOT cause hairloss, but since I gave up masturbation, I've noticed that I'm not losing hair anymore.

Hey Docs! You said that masturbation does NOT cause hairloss, but since I gave up masturbation, I've noticed that I'm not losing hair anymore.

Awesome! And...: Now you know what a "testimonial" is. A testimonial is something you say happened to you, such as "I stopped eating plums, and my skin is much smoother". It often is a coincidence, the things that are happening, and are not "cause and effect". That means "not eating plums" does not cause skin changes, but both things occurred around the same time. Coincidences can fool you, if you let them. ...Read more

I can't find out the main cause of hairloss i don't have genetic affect, no stress, no illness masturbation not linked with hairloss as doctors belive?

Masturbation: First. There is absolutely no truth to any myth that masturbation leads to hair loss. This is a lie and is easily debunked given that all men who can do masturbate or have masturbated and many of them have their hair. Second you cannot possibly know since there is no specific test that your hair loss is not in your genes. Most men do not know why this happens to them. But, it does. ...Read more

My Dermatologist told me to stop masturbation asap as it's the main reason of hairloss in men as it causes higher DHT levels, is that true?

My Dermatologist told me to stop masturbation asap as it's the main reason of hairloss in men as it causes higher DHT levels, is that true?

Think about it...: Hair loss is unrelated to the number of people present during one's sexual activities, nor related to whether one's genitals are being stimulated by one's own hands or the hands of the other people present. Thus, one's body does not know whose nor how many hands are engaged in the activities. The body knows masturbation only as sex. So, are bald men having the most number of sexual events in town? ...Read more

Does masturbation cause hair loss and how can mastubation done in moderation?

Does masturbation cause hair loss and how can mastubation done in moderation?

Big picture: You are a young man and you are going to enjoy your body and keep the pressure down in this way, probably even after you marry. One of the cults has a mock-scientific account of hormones and hair loss and your sexual release. It is a total fraud. Ignore it. To keep things manageable, think about that one special person in your future rather than internet trash -- porn is a dead end. ...Read more

I am 18 years old male and am facing severe hair loss. I do masturbate once or twice a week. What might be the possible reasons?

I am 18 years old male and am facing severe hair loss. I do masturbate once or twice a week. What might be the possible reasons?

Probably genetic: Depending on the pattern of your hair loss, it is either genetic or caused by an underlying health problem. Masturbation will have nothing to do with hair loss. If your front hairline is receding and/or the crown is thinning, you have genetic hair loss and should visit a hair loss specialist. If you are losing all over your head, see your family doctor for tests. ...Read more

Does baldness or hairloss totally depends upon genes , heridity or sexual desires as well like masturbation.. ?? Please help me out

NO NO NO: There are different kinds of hair loss. Heredity is often a factor. Sex desires, sex activity, masturbation are not related to baldness in any way. Won't make you blind, either. Get this nonsense out of your mind and learn some science. ...Read more

I've read that (male) masturbating everyday can cause hair loss or make it thinner and also weaker erection in the future. Any truth to this?

It's just a lie: I'm sorry you were deceived. Most men your age have been enjoying their bodies daily for a decade. The stuff on the internet about hormone levels looks real but is totally made up. It's intended to frighten guys who are in one of the cults. Life's difficult enough without people giving you disinformation. Enjoy who you are and be discerning. ...Read more

I have SD scalp.I hav severe hairloss and balding heavily. Excessive masturbation must have cause it.Can I take Becousels Z tab to balance it ?

WRONG THEORY: Scalp situation in NO WAY related to masturbation. You won't go blind, either. Balding may be androgenetic but there are other possible types which can be identified by a dermatologist. Seborrheic dermatitis will improve with daily shampoo using ketoconazole, selenium, zinc pyrethium. Cortisones are very effective. You will derive NO BENEFIT from oral zinc, or any vitamin, nor from any hormone. Se ...Read more

Try taking it easy: On your poor penis. Find something else to do during the day, like a hobby or a job or a girlfriend. There is nothing wrong with your erection, or your testosterone -- but you need to get a life. Your penis should not be your only friend. ...Read more

Can excessive masturbation cause hair loss in men?

Thanks

No: It just doesn't. Nor will it make you hairy / smooth / stupid / blind / unspiritual / an unfit father / husband. One of the cults has a phony mock-scientific account of how it causes baldness, and if you've been deceived by this, I'm sorry and I hope you'll walk away from it. If you're obsessed with erotica, your doctor can help. But enjoying yourself a few times daily is fine. ...Read more
