You may be wondering whether your sperm count has decreased because of your masturbating habit. Let’s see whether that’s the case.
Can you have too many ejaculations and have it hurt your fertility? Is there an ideal frequency (days/weeks/months) of masturbation for optimum fertility? Does masturbating affect the number of sperm?
It’s only natural to ponder “What is normal?” when it comes to masturbating. Is there evidence that masturbating has an effect on fertility?
What Effect Does Masturbation Have On Sperm Count?
The sperm count will not drop due to masturbation. In healthy males, masturbation is not known to reduce sperm count or influence fertility. The catch is, however, that there is a catch. When attempting to conceive, it is best to wait at least three days before ejaculating if you have been told your sperm count is low.
Do Pornographic Substances Reduce Sperm Count?
According to studies, porn really increases sperm quality. Porn may have a positive effect on fertility since it stimulates the same kind of desire that doing so with a new partner does.
Fresh sperm is preferable for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that it improves sperm quality. Some men who are trying to conceive may be under the impression that they need to wait for their partner’s ovulation to deposit their sperm, despite the fact that the testes are continually producing sperm. Do your best to avoid ignoring it for too long. Thus, a man’s sperm quality increases when he ejaculates at least twice weekly.
The number of sperm plays a role in fertility, although the relationship between the two is complicated. “You can have too much of a good thing.” In the case of low sperm counts, it is possible to go too far. Therefore, ejaculating every other day permits sperm to regenerate to quantities that are more likely to result in a successful pregnancy.
Is It Beneficial for Fertility to Keep Your Menstrual Fluid?
If you’re trying to raise fertility or your testosterone level, you might have come across material concerning “semen retention” (intentionally avoiding ejaculation). Avoiding ejaculation and “retaining semen” is advocated by some as a means to better physical health, fertility, sex satisfaction, and mental well-being.
This concept has been discussed for some time now. But there’s no research to back up those claims, and waiting more than a few days to ejaculate might actually hurt your sperm quality.
The Positive Effects of Ejaculating and Masturbating
If you have a healthy perspective on masturbation, it may be rewarding (i.e., it is not an addiction). For instance, masturbation can cause:
Managing your stress is a key step in maintaining good mental health.
Mood-boosting endorphins are released in the brain during both masturbation and intercourse. Stress hormone cortisol is reduced by sex as well.
Improves your ability to sleep
Hormones such as oxytocin, vasopressin, and prolactin are released during the ejaculatory process. Calming and sleep-inducing, these are.
Promotes Health by Strengthening Your Defenses
Some research suggests that sexual activity, specifically masturbation and climaxing, might help your body’s defences.
Enhances the Quality of Sexual Activity
Genital blood flow is increased during masturbation. This maintains the health of your genitalia. Having sex often can help you become used to the physical feelings associated with sexual activity and improve your overall sense of bodily confidence. If you suffer from low self-esteem, premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, or any other sexual phobias or insecurities, this may help.
Possibly Protects Against Prostate Cancer
Men who ejaculated more than 20 times each month had a 20% lower risk of developing prostate cancer, according to a research published in the European Urology journal in 2016. (21 times was the magic number).
reduces the possibility of developing cardiovascular disease
The American Journal of Cardiology reports that having sex seldom (once a month or less) can raise the risk of cardiovascular disease.
There is no evidence that postponing ejaculation has any health advantages, and masturbation has been shown to have no effect on fertility other than a temporary drop in sperm counts. Enjoy yourself to the fullest!
