Does Frequent Masturbation Cause Insomnia?
Excuse me, I want to ask, I’ve been masturbating too much lately, and it’s because of so much that I’m insomniac. Is it true that masturbation can cause insomnia? It’s been over a week I have insomnia due to excessive masturbation, thank you
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Insomnia is a condition where a person experiences a sleep disorder characterized by feeling tired when waking up, having difficulty starting sleep, difficulty maintaining sleep, and not feeling refreshed when waking up or even sad after waking up. This condition can be caused by various things, including:
Anxiety, stress, fear, depression and other mental problems
Suffering from a disease that causes pain
Respiratory disorders such as asthma and other lung diseases
Muscle and joint pain problems
Drug side effects
Poor sleep patterns, frequent staying up late, erratic sleeping hours, excessive caffeine or coffee consumption
Meanwhile, masturbation is the activity of satisfying sexual desire by stimulating the genital organs themselves. Masturbation usually ends with the occurrence of ejaculation or the discharge of sperm. So far, no studies have shown that masturbation can cause sleep disturbances. In fact, usually after a man masturbates, or has sex as a whole, he will feel tired and sleepy, so he can sleep more soundly. If after you masturbate you take a big shower and then find it difficult to sleep, then the difficulty sleeping is more because you take a shower, not because of the masturbation itself.
So our advice is that if you really feel that masturbation is causing you trouble sleeping, you should not masturbate near bedtime, or better yet, reduce masturbation entirely because there are also many negative effects of masturbation. One of them is that even though you feel satisfied, you will want it again and again to distract you.
In addition, divert your energy into sports, studying, playing or doing anything else that will make you happy and rest on time. This is important because insomnia can make a person's immune system decrease and make him more susceptible to disease. Finally, stay away from stress and cigarette smoke, and fulfill your nutrition by regularly consuming vegetables, fruit and drinking lots of water. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
