Anemia in Masturbation?
Jul 27, 2003

Hi Dr. I'm a 16 year old chronic masturbater. I heard that old myth about masturbation and anemia, and I recently found out I'm anemic, could my anemia have been caused by masturbation? Right after i ecjaculate I get pretty dizzy and sometimes extremely tired to do anything after. If you could answer me quick that'd be awesome, thank you. The Young One

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hey Young One,

What you heard is indeed an "old myth" and not a scientific truth! No, masturbation does not cause anemia.

By the way, aren't all 16-year-olds "chronic" masturbators? Getting a bit dizzy and feeling tired after you have an orgasm are perfectly normal. Relax and enjoy your youth. We old guys are so envious.
