Is Masturbation Causes Energy Loss, White Hair, Pregnancy, Testosterone Loss, and AIDS? Check Myths and Facts

Let’s discuss a topic that often sparks interest, curiosity, and confusion: Masturbation.

Simply put, masturbation is the act of stimulating one’s genitals for sexual pleasure. It is a regular part of most of our lives—in fact, according to a survey, over 80% of men and women accepted masturbating!

Yet, people still shy away from discussing this topic.

Well, that explains why it attracts so many myths. Moreover, when it comes to masturbation, you find more myths than actual facts spreading all around our lives. From claims of energy loss and premature ageing to concerns about fertility and even the risk of contracting AIDS, there are many myths and misconceptions about masturbation.

So, today, I am here to contribute a little change.

In this blog, we will explore and understand different myths surrounding masturbation, filtering truth from fiction.

Is Masturbation Causes Stomach Pain?


Well, the short answer is yes, masturbation may cause cramps and discomfort due to certain reasons. And while in most cases, it’s not really a cause for worry, some may require treatment.

Moreover, there are a few things to consider if you are feeling discomfort in your stomach after some self-pleasure sessions:

  • Firstly, Muscle cramps resulting from orgasms can be one reason. In fact, the intense muscle contractions that happen during orgasm might lead to temporary cramping or discomfort in the lower abdomen. It’s like when your muscles ache after a good workout – it’s your body’s way of telling you it’s been put to the test.
  • Secondly, if you are not using enough lubrication, friction can irritate your genitals and surrounding areas, resulting in a dull ache or burning sensation that might be mistaken for stomach pain.
  • Lastly, if you’re experiencing persistent or severe stomach pain after masturbation, it could be a sign of an underlying medical condition such as a hernia, prostatitis (for men), or pelvic inflammatory disease (for women). In such cases, it’s essential to consult with a healthcare professional for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Remember, listening to your body and paying attention to any unusual symptoms is important. If you are facing consistent pain, it’s best to seek medical help immediately.

Is Masturbation Causes Energy Loss?

Before I answer this, let’s see how masturbation works on your body.

Okay, what happens is when you indulge in masturbation, your body undergoes a temporary shift in hormones.

There is a rise in hormone-like prolactin levels, whereas dopamine levels drop. This causes a brief suppression of sexual drive and a spike in heart rate. There is some calorie burn, however small it may be. So, it’s normal to feel physically tired afterwards, often craving a good sleep. However, this exhaustion is short-lived and typically lasts only a few hours.

But if you have a compulsive masturbation habit, now that can be a problem.

Compulsive masturbation can to physical side effects. You may end up feeling exhausted. Besides that, it can also cause delayed ejaculation and erectile problems during intercourse, affecting your sex life.

Is Masturbation Causes Aids?

No, it doesn’t. What happens is HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, spreads through contact with infected bodily fluids like blood, semen, vaginal fluid, or breast milk.

But when it comes to solo or mutual masturbation, the risk is incredibly low. You can understand it like this– the virus needs a direct pathway to enter your bloodstream. Now, this no way happens in the case of masturbation.

However, I would like to add that in case you are using some kind of sex toy, it’s best to maintain proper hygiene every time before and after the use.

Besides that, you do not need to worry about masturbation and AIDS.

In fact, even in the times when medical science was not that advanced (back in the 1980s when HIV first appeared), solo or mutual masturbation became a preferred safe-sex option because it’s practically risk-free.

So, In short, you don’t need to worry about contracting HIV from masturbation.

Is Masturbation Causes White Hair?

No, masturbation does not cause white hair. This is just a common misconception. Healthy masturbation is a natural physiological process.

However, there are other factors that may be the underlying reason for the greying of hair. It may be due to:

  • Natural ageing
  • Genetics
  • Stress
  • Certain medical conditions
  • Nutritional deficiencies like vitamin, protein and calcium deficiencies
  • Distorted sleep cycle.

If you are concerned about your hair turning white early, I would recommend consulting a doctor or dermatologist. They can help you determine the cause and recommend treatment options depending on your needs.

Is Masturbation Causes Pregnancy?

When we fail to have open discussion about anything, it breeds doubts. And that’s exactly what happens here. Most people are embarrassed talking or asking questions about masturbation; they just tend to believe anything.

However, no worries. Let me help you here. The straight answer is absolutely NO, masturbation doesn’t lead to pregnancy.

See, what happens is that convincing requires the fusion of male and female gametes, that is, sperm and ova (egg). And this clearly doesn’t happen during masturbation. There is no mating of sperm and eggs.

Therefore, unless you’re ovulating and a sperm meets your egg, there’s no chance of pregnancy from masturbation alone.

Sure, there are many wild stories out there claiming all sorts of things about masturbation, like it causing diseases or infertility, but those are just myths.

So, if you’re worried about getting pregnant because of masturbation, you can relax—it’s not how it works.

Is Masturbation Causes Testosterone Loss?

Testosterone, as you may know, is the male hormone responsible for sexual development and function. It plays an important role in muscle growth, bone density, and sex drive.

Now, it is a common belief that Masturbation Causes Testosterone Loss.

But what does the research say?

Well, the short answer is no. There is no scientific evidence supporting this belief.

In fact, according to one study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, no link was found between masturbation and testosterone levels. In this survey conducted on over 300 healthy men, no difference was found in testosterone levels between those who masturbated and those who didn’t. In fact, testosterone levels tend to fluctuate throughout the day, influenced by various factors like age, diet, and overall health.

Further supporting this evidence, in another study published in the Archives of Sexual Behaviour, researchers analyzed data from over 1,000 men and found that masturbation frequency had no impact on testosterone levels.

So, what does this mean for you?

Well, it means that there’s no need to worry about masturbation causing low testosterone levels. As long as you are overall healthy and following healthy habits like avoiding excessive masturbation and following safe sexual practices, you will keep safe from the negative effects, my friend. You are unlikely to have any negative effects on your hormone levels.

However, I would like to emphasise that you should always listen to your body. Remember, we are all different. What works for one may not work for another. So, if you are worried about your testosterone levels or if you are experiencing symptoms like fatigue or low libido, it’s always a good idea to talk to a healthcare professional.
