Can masturbating daily, 3 times a day for 5 years or more cause health problems?

Can masturbating daily, 3 times a day for 5 years or more cause health problems?

No: There is a wide range of normal libido, or sexual interest. As long as sexual activity does not interfere with other important aspects of your life, then how often you masturbate or have sex is up to you, and is not linked to health risks. You might want to invest in a good water-based lube, so you don't get a blister, though. ...Read more

More data please: Even healthy appearing kids can have stooling issues.Volume/texture/stool water/blood, mucous or pus/excessive odor(clears a room)are important additional facts. Talk with your dr about the issue. At that age the kid is likely embarrased by the issue & wants it to stop. The issues could range from food intolerances/irritable bowel/even stool retention with leaking. A good exam & tests should help. ...Read more

If I drink 1 red bull everyday (0, 25 l) and I work out in the gym 2 times a week, will it cause any health problems, if I in addition drink 0, 75l soda?

Energy Drinks: Your main concern with energy drinks and soda is the sugar and caffeine. While 1 energy drink a day may not seem like much, you are consumer a large quantity of sugar at one time.

Is one's mental health affected by once a week smoking over a prolonged period of time?

Depends: It depends on what is being smoked and how much is being smoked, among other factors. If you're smoking a single cigarette the effect will likely be insignificant. Smoking of any kind is unnecessary and potentially harmful. Breathing fresh air is ok, however. ...Read more

After a long time, can self-harm become just a bad habit that has no significant connection to underlying mental health problems?

After a long time, can self-harm become just a bad habit that has no significant connection to underlying mental health problems?

Always Meaning: Even when our behavior becomes a habit, it has an underlying meaning. Self harm is a behavior that can become a habit, but I believed it's still linked to emotional distress and pain. Often the physical pain becomes a coping mechanism to deal (or rather not to deal) with overwhelming emotional difficulties. Hotline: http://ow.ly/x7AVK ...Read more

Okay I have no health insurance. I have problem every time i get ready to come on my monthly. I get boils in places on my body. What can I do?

Okay I have no health insurance. I have problem every time i get ready to come on my monthly. I get boils in places on my body. What can I do?

No reason: Despite my misgivings on obamacare, you should be able to get some insurance coverage free or with federal subsidy. I am concerned that you may have an impaired immune system or possible Progesterone allergy. You need to have an immune work up if hormonal effects have been ruled out. ...Read more

I masturbate 1-2 times a day, but I don't want to ejaculate. I ejaculate only on every 3rd or 4th day. Can I get any health problems from this?

I masturbate 1-2 times a day, but I don't want to ejaculate. I ejaculate only on every 3rd or 4th day. Can I get any health problems from this?

Listen friend: What's the problem? You are free to ejaculate or not, but what you do and whether you finish off isn't going to damage your health. Anyone who tells you otherwise is misinformed or lying to you. Being a young adult is hard enough without people frightening you about your changing body. Embrace who you are, think about that one special person who may be in your future, & maybe even talk to a parent ...Read more

Do enlarged collarbone node (right one) always/mostly means serious health problem(cancer)? Soft and movable. I got cold last time, no other issues.

Do enlarged collarbone node (right one) always/mostly means serious health problem(cancer)? Soft and movable.  I got cold last time, no other issues.

Need more assessment: From your GI history, inflammatory or infectious conditions could explain rt supraclav lymph node (ln). If your procedure history did in fact include transplant, you definitely are having close hematology/onc assessment. Without clear reasons, excisional removal of ln rather than needle sampling should be evaluated. ...Read more

Mom has a tendency to worry about trivial & legitimate health issues alike. Over time I'm worried her doctors won't take her real problems seriously?

Tough situation: Hi. We all have hypochondriacal patients, and it's very challenging. We learn to let go of most of what they tell us. Nevertheless, all humans get old, get sick, and die, so even the hypochondriacs get truly sick sooner or later. They waste a lot of physician time and limited healthcare resources in the meantime. There's no easy answer. Good luck to her! ...Read more

Both : Both your medical conditions, your psychiatric conditions and your medications could be contributing to your exhaustion. Dont' know when the last time your thyroid, carnitine and vitamin d levels were checked there are three common issues that can cause problems with fatigue. If these have not been checked it would be a good place to start. Having your diabetes well controlled is also very important. Ask your psychiatrist to assess you for atypical depression as it may respond well to a medication like wellbutrin (bupropion) if present. ...Read more

I am facing health issue, masturbate problem while sleeping, one or two time in a week, is it dangerous? im so worried about my health

No harm: What you described will not cause any health problems. Contrary to popular misconceptions, masturbation does not cause baldness, dementia or any other health abnormality. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. ...Read more
