Doctor

A:   I could understand your concern.
Masturbation is a healthy way of achieving pleasure.
The frequency of masturbation shall be at it its peak around 20 years of age.
Stop feeling guilty of doing so.
If you are still unable to concentrate on studies, do meditation and yoga which shall make you feel relaxed. Even then you are unable to concentrate, better consult a clinical psychologist at your place.

Hope I have cleared your concern.

Wishing You a healthy Sexual Life
