Are There Negative Effects If A Man Does Not Masturbate For 3 Months?
I am 25 years old, single. I refrained from jerk off for 3 months. Will there be a negative effect from this? thanks.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically masturbation is not a primary need for human life (for men or women), so not masturbating for years will not even have any negative impact on physical or mental health. Masturbation is done only for distribution of sexual appetite, there are no certain benefits also obtained from doing this.
In some men, not masturbating and ejaculating for a long time can cause pain in the testicles if there is an erection in the penis. This condition is called epididymal hypertension or blue balls. Pain in this testicle will appear when the penis has an erection, especially an erection for a long time, without ejaculation followed. Although it's quite annoying and can look terrible (the scrotum can look bluish), this condition is completely harmless and the pain will also go away after a few minutes. This condition is also not always certain for every man. If the pain occurs continuously for hours and not associated with erection or other sexual activity, you should consult your urologist for further evaluation.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
