Stop masterbation causes low testosterone?

Patient : Stopping masterbation from Internet porn"cold turkey" (all of a sudden) ,can it cause a decrease in testosterone long term or does it just return to baseline? Because I heard that you flatline after a few weeks of stopping and your libido gets low?
Doctor :   Thank you for your question. Excessive masturbation does not markedly affect one's testosterone levels. Testosterone i s a male hormone produced in the testicles and its levels are tightly regulated by various endocrine mechanisms within the human body. We suggest that this should not be an issue to concern you, and your libido will not be affected. Thank you for choosing
