In brief: Masterbation urges

Materbation is normal in young adults, as long as it doesnot become obsession and overdone.
How many times a day or week iy is normal depends on your timr schedule.You can try to stop urge to masterbate by self control and lower the number of time you masterbate but you should not feel guilty if you masterbate and it is not going to cause any short or long term ill effect on your health.

In brief: If It Is A Problem

Masturbation is considered a healthy expression of one's sexual needs.
From your question I am assuming that for some reason masturbation is presenting a problem for you. Chronic or compulsive masturbation is usually a symptom of an underlying psychiatric disorder. Is such cases a compete psychiatric evaluation is warranted to determine the cause. Treatment is based upon the underlying cause.
