Does masturbation/ejaculation affect muscle build and gains If it does

Patient

Q: Does masturbation/ejaculation affect muscle build and gains. If it does how many times can you do it before it really takes a toll?

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com

I understand your concern.
Masturbation is a healthy process and does not affect muscle gain in any way. If done more than 2-3 times a day, it may cause fatigue, thereby affecting your work-out.
So, if done once daily or once every alternate day, it is a healthy process.

Hope this was helpful,
Regards
