Does excessive masturbation cause ED?


Topic starter

Since about two months, I have been masturbating excessively. I can't get hard like I did before. Is this ED, or should I take a rest?

Due to psychological and numbing effects, masturbating too much can lead to erectile dysfunction (ED). However, everyone's situations are different. It's best to keep a fair view of physical behavior and see a doctor if you have any worries.


Erectile dysfunction (ED) isn't directly caused by masturbation that goes on too long, but it may make it worse if it makes you less sensitive or anxious about performing. The key is moderation. If you have any worries, you should talk to a medical professional to get rid of any underlying problems that might be causing your ED.
