Red face Is it too late ? Have I lost it ?????

Im 29 yrs old. I have been masturbating since I was 19. I used to do it 4 or 5 times a day, gradually it had come down to 3 times, 2 times and nowadays I do it once or twice... but the problem is, I dont get erections at all... Moreover, the last four or five times, me and my girl friend couldnt have intercourse because I wasnt erect.... unfortunately, my girl friend has left me because of this.

Have I lost it because of my masturbation ? is there something that i can do now ? please help me.

She was right, you did not need her. You have a good right hand.

If you are concerned about not having a girl friend, give up your passion with your right hand.

Good luck,

Your masturbation didnt have anything to do with you losing your erections.
Your first step is to go see your doctor and explain what is going on. It could be a simple thing of hormones being out of whack,your health not being so great or other issues.
Masturbation is healthy as long as it isnt done to extremes. Once or twice a day isnt that extreme. And even for some guys several times a day isnt extreme it varies on what is extreme from person to person.
Also you might want to change up how you masturbate. You see you could have lost your erections because you are use to one type of stimulation. So change that so see if that helps. There are other ways for guys to masturbate besides using your hand.

Masturbation is your body's way of keeping the genitals healthy. You have to, since nobody can have sex with his partner 24/7, so it keeps the plumbing working.

But you might have increasing stress from work or family, sleep deprivation, hormone deficit, all of which can be determined and repaired.

Best things you can do for free are good diet and exercise. These improve your health and mood and your sex life as well, which includes healthy masturbation.

Two sugegstions here:

1. Stop flogging your log and save the erections for her.

2. If whacking is not really the issue then see your doctor about getting some Viagra.

3rd suggestion:

you worry too much. and if you think about it, thats probaly the cause of your probelem...

Take a deep breath and chill. shes YOUR lady, you dont need to be worrying about such things. Just say to yourself "shes mine and no-one elses".
