Freequent/Excessive Masturbation

Hey, I am very concerned about my health habits. I've been masturbating since an early age about 12-13 and I am almost turning 17 years old in a few weeks. I normally do it about 4 times a day and maybe even up to 6 times. I recall that I did it probably at least once a day when I was younger, if not more. I am very scared that it will lead me to health issues later on in life. I began a relationship with a girl about 9 months ago. And probably started having sexual intercourse about 7 months ago. We probably do it at least twice if not more a week. We even have gone through a 2 week period in which we had sex daily. She is now on vacation and I realized that I masturbate even more. Maybe 5 times a day? For the past 8 months, I would say that I tell her to help me masturbate and sometimes she masturbates me 2-4 times a day. I researched and found out that masturbation does help reduce prostate cancer chances, but there is an article that is the msot recent one than those other ones. http://www.livescience.com/health/090126-masturbation-prostate.html

That article states that early masturbation in young age men can lead to prostate cancer later on in life. I am very concerned about it. I've been doing it at least 4 times a day for the past two weeks but I'm trying to cut down. I also have an issue of having to urinate a lot after I drink water. It feels like the water goes through my system pretty quick and needs to come out. I'm not sure if frequent masturbation is a cause of my urination/bladder issue. I tried not masturbating for 3 days lately and I couldn't help but masturbate. Once I put my hands on my penis for about 15 seconds of stroking, I already ejaculated. The semen was clearish in the beginning and the end of my ejaculation was more thickened and white. I felt a burning sensation as I urinate before but it probably happened less than 5 times so far in my whole life. I know that, that is a symptom of Prostate Cancer.

Another issue is the fact that my penis becomes errected quite easily. When I see a hot girl or something or when my girlfriend dirty talks me, I immediately get a boner. Is there something I can do like a home remedy or something I can do that will lower my hormones that causes me to become errected that easily? I'm wondering if you can tell me if I will or might have health issues later on and tips on how to stop masturbating as much. I would also like to know how often should a teen of my age, 17, masturbate a week. Should I masturbate once a week, twice a week, etc. How often should I also have sexual intercourse a week? Please give me some advice, I really need to change my habit.

Greetings Friend:  First off-relax.  Masturbation is a pleasuring, relaxing, and wonderful act.  You are at the peak of hormone delivery; difficulty controlling when you have an erection is normal for guys your age, wanting to frequently masturbate is normal.  If you have questions about your urinary health, consult a compassionate urologist; talk to him about the burning while you urinate.  I would also consult your doctor; the frequent drinking and the frequent urination can be signs of diabetes.  I would get that checkout right away.  As a psychotherapist, I wonder if you have any stresses or anxieties.  Sometimes people use masturbation or sexual activity as a way to deal with stresses and anxieties; other than you concern aboutfrequent masturbation, are there other stresses and anxieties you need to deal with?  Do you have other physical activities in your life; sports, working-out, lifting?  Physical activity is another way to deal with sexual energy.
If after consulting your doctor, you still feel anxious and concerned about your frequent masturbation, a counselor or psychotherapy might be very helpful. On another note, as a 55 year-old male, I wish I had 1/2 of your sexual energy. Sex can be wonderful.  Get help with your health issues and/or anxieties and you may have a better feeling about sex and your sexuality.  Peace
