Does masturbation causes hair loss – a myth or a phenomenon of existence

Even though there is no solid evidence regarding the relation between masturbation and hair loss, there are several theories running around for years.

  • The semen ejaculated has high amounts of protein, nutrients, and hormones which may deprive the hair of proper nourishment.
  •  The second theory states that after the chemical reaction called masturbation hormones, proteins and neurotransmitters are released which causes conversion of testosterone into DHT which is the mastermind behind hair loss.

Role Of DHT(Dihydrotestosterone) In Male Hair Loss


Let’s see how true these two theories are:

  •  50% of the dry weight of the body is made up of proteins so even if there is the excessive expulsion of seminal fluid it wouldn’t reduce the protein content of the body.
  • The hair loss due to genetic reasons occurs mostly because of conversion of a hormone called testosterone into dihydrotestosterone.                                                                                             

Sex and masturbation increase the levels of testosterone which in turn increases the levels DTH and that may indicate the second theory might just be correct.

Since sex and masturbation are unavoidable in life, the best alternative is sex with infrequent ejaculation.                                                                                                            

Channeling the sexual energy properly through the deep diaphragmatic breathing of push and circulating it throughout the body in form of a massage energy starting from the perineum located between anus and scrotum might do you good.

 

 

However most of the time the reason behind hair loss is misdiagnosed. You might think that masturbation or sex might be the issue but it is actually masking the actual reasons like insomnia, stress, pollution exposure, and poor eating habits. So take actions against these basic issues before jumping to any conclusion.

    Sir me minoxidil 5% 2 mahine se use kar raha hu, aur mere baal bhut jyada jhadd rhe hai, sir ye kab tak jadenge?

    • Dr. Dhananjay Chavan

      Hello Rashid,
      Yes, when we start the use of Minoxidil in start your hair start falling, which is called as hair shedding. In shedding period the weak and dead hairs fall down and then new hairs grew back. You need to understand that your hair will grow in complete cyclic order and hair has to pass each stage and it see on the surface. After minoxidil usage, it takes 4-6 months to see results. Follow your Dermatologists treatment protocol.

    Sir my father is 48 years old and he have thick and shiny hair now also. He is yoga teacher. My mother is 43 years old and she have good hair too. I’m only 17 years old and i’m having male pattern baldness from upper scalp. We consulted a dermatologist. He just did bak bak, didnt gave good idea. I’m healthy. I have no any health issues i’m far from addiction of alcohol. He(doctor) said not to take stress. And I try that. I started to do exercise. But didn’t get any good results. Now how can i not take stress. I’m going to depression now. My parents are suggesting to wait till my board exams and start for treatment. I see my friends having good hair but i am forced to wear cap which makes me sad. Now i’m just living for my parents i m so sad what should i try

      Hello,
      I will suggest you check with another dermatologist if you are not comfortable with your doctor and get your test done to see the problem for your hair fall, as it can be due to deficiency, or heredity, or other issues.
      for me it is really difficult to say about any medications, as without doing a physical examination.its against medical ethics.
