Patient: Does masturbation/ejaculation reduce testosterone levels, which in turn reduces muscle growth and repain.

Symptoms: High libido

Doctor: Masturbation or ejaculation doesn’t affect testosterone levels. Infact, testosterone level is important to get th e mood or initiation to masturbation, sex etc.,. So do remember sex and overall health, work on the principle ‘use or lose’!
