I'm a frequent masturbator. I'm eighteen, and I was wondering if maturation will stunt my growth? Isn't sperm vital for growth (men) since it carries so much vitamins? So if we lose it, I'm guessing we are not grow as much since we are losing the vitamins. Please comment

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. too much frequency of masturbation can lead to such discomforts. So either avoid it or reduce it to once a week, Its fine then.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
