Can excessive masturbation cause ED
avatar
helpplease99 posted:
I am a generally healthy 30 yrs old (epilepsy well controlled with depakote er and hypothyroidism well controlled synthroid). Some might say I masturbate compulsively (sometimes 3-5 times a day) I believe its become an addiction. I've noticed that I can no longer get erections suitable for intercourse. The more I masturbate the weaker subsequent erections are. I typically don't get erections in the morning or while masturbating however when I do the are weak and short lived. Is it at all possible (even an outside chance) that my habit has caused this problem? I cant seem to stop because I am depressed and it helps me cope at least very briefly. If anyone has had issues like this how did they overcome? Anyone know why this happens? Please help I cant function any more! Any information would be great even the name of a sex expert (MD or therapist of some kind).

thanks
