Can Excessive Masturbation Cause Male Infertility? Find Out What You Need To Know

Masturbation has been considered a safe way to explore the body & feel pleasure, as has a very low risk of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). One common myth usually attached to it if it causes infertility in males or not.

According to Mayo clinic, male masturbation isn’t likely to have much effect on your fertility as some data shows optimum semen quality after 2-3 days of no £jaculation. Also, other research suggests that men who have normal sperm quality maintain normal sperm motility and concentrations even with daily £jaculation. Thus, even with masturbation, a male can get a female pregnant.

Thus, intimacy with £jaculation several times a week will still maximize the chances of getting your partner pregnant, whether you masturbate or not.


According to HealthLine, masturbation raises the level of certain hormones. However, it won’t permanently change the hormone levels. Thus, it cannot impact the hormones to the point where it can cause infertility or harm pregnancy.

However, while it may be considered medically safe, nothing comes without its side effects. Excessive masturbation may cause physical trauma or injury to the nerves or blood vessels of the private organ. This has the potential to cause erectile dysfunction. Thus, it is important to understand that moderation is the bottom line.
