Is my hair loss due to genetic ? Does masturbation cause hair loss or increase its effect ? (photos)

i started to notice that something went wrong with my hair at the age of 17,after taking a shower i could clearly see my head skin in some areas at the age of 19 i could see more of my head skin (more areas on my head without a single hair) Now i'm 20 and it's obvious that something is wrong with me,i have thick hair so if it's not wet , everything seems fine but once it's wet ... , i wanted to know if it's due to genetic or anything else , and also does masturbation have anything to do with it?

This question seems to be coming up more often lately. I have to use a quote from another contributing physician on this site, "If masturbation caused baldness then every man would be completely bald." Having said this, most baldness comes from a genetic predisposition. There are other medical issues that can cause permanent and temporary baldness. Do your research and if you feel the need, definitely consult with a reputable hair restoration clinic.
