Is masturbating once a day harmful for a 20 year old male?

when can masturbation become harmful?
The best physician for you to discuss this issue with would probably be your primary care doctor. To my knowledge, there is no maximum frequency for masturbation in a young man. Generally speaking, the frequency of once per day is well within the normal limits and would not be considered excessive by any health care professional. The only physical harm that can come from masturbation is the mechanical trauma to the penis that theoretically can occur if done in an abnormal way. It happens that young men come to a doctor and report new bleeding with urination or bloody semen because of excessive or vigorous masturbation. However, this is not usually because of a high-frequency but more because of abnormal techniques. The best physician for you to discuss this issue with would probably be your primary care doctor. This could be a family physician or an internal medicine physician depending on your preference. If you are in college, this could also be your student health adviser which is often a nurse practitioner or physicians assistant (PA). All of these healthcare professionals will be very qualified to discuss this issue in detail if you wish. Of course if you ever do develop pain with masturbating or develop a bloody discharge, you should always seek care immediately or call your doctor right away. Good luck.
