Does frequent masturbations affect CD 4 cells count in a person ?

Mar 18, 2012

Hi Dr. Holodiny,

I would like to know that being HIV positive does not mean that a person will not have to urge to either have sex or maturbate himself or herself to ease individual satisfaction. Now, with constant masturbation, will the HIV positive person CD 4 counts drop or will it remains unstable....meaning to say whenever a person masturbate, it will drop and recover after a few days after masturbation had stopped.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Interesting question. Unfortunately, I don't have answer. It would be a great study to do though, in more ways than one.
