No there is no link whatsoever.

Masturbation will not cause anything to change in your body (hairy palms, poor eyesight, smaller/larger bits, etc).

For most people masturbation is a positive, healthy and normal part of life - it helps you get to know your body, reduce stress and is enjoyable.

Choosing to masturbate, choosing not to masturbate or feeling no need to masturbate are all normal things.

Nothing to worry about either way.

But surely if you are releasing testosterone that would affect puberty and growth levels? Im not sure myself, just asking. Do you have any evidence to back ur statement

Do you have evidence to support your assertion/theory?

I suggest if you have real concerns you talk to your doctor.

Yes, masturbation can temporarily change levels of testosterone and other hormones in the body, as can lots of other lifestyle choices, but not enough to be a concern regarding puberty and growth levels.

However, some people do have genetic or medical issues that can result in unusually low or high levels of testosterone or other hormones resulting in a range of issues, some of which can impact development - none of which are caused by masturbation.

When it comes to your height and puberty, key factors are what your genes are like (what height are your parents), eating healthily, getting enough sleep and exercise and not smoking. There is very little you can do but staying positive will make whatever the result is, irrelevant to your longterm happiness.



Again, if you're concerned talk to your doctor.
