My hubby works 6 days a week and while I'm at home, I want some sex real bad. Can masterbating creat a hostile enviroment for "the soliders", if it does, how long does it last?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Masturbation does not create hostile environment by itself. If infection is introduced, it can cause alterations in secretions making vaginal and cervical mucus to be hostile. It can go away only with adequate treatment. If you get used to masturbation, it can also interfere in your normal sexual pleasures, and your brain gets tuned to a particular kind of stimulus, so orgasm with intercourse becomes difficult. Engage yourself in creative activities while you are at home instead of masturbation.
Take care.
