Masturbation is very normal as it is very safe and also helps you in controlling excitement.It should be practiced only when excited and should not be a regular habit.You do not need to mention specifically to your Gynaec about it.
There is no negative aspect about it but excessive masturbation should not be practiced as it may divert your attention form other important things.
If you have questions about masterbation that you'd like to ask your doctor, they will NOT tell your parents.
Doctors respect doctor/patient confidentiality unless one of these exceptions apply:
1. You are in danger of harming yourself
2. You are in danger of harming another person
3. You are under the age of 18 and have a medical illness that needs treatment.
If you are under the age of 18, parents DO have access to your medical files (prescriptions, diagnosises, etc) but questions about masterbation would not be recorded or included in those files.
So if you'd like to talk to your doctor about the topic of masterbation, don't fret over your parents finding out! Doctor's realize that it's a sensitive subject that you would probably feel awkward having shared with your parents. They care more about answering your questions and making sure you're healthy than exposing all your "dirty little secrets" to your mom and dad. I even told my doctor that I was sexually active when I didn't want my parents to know, and she kept it confidential.
