No , masturbation doesn't cause hair loss.  I suggest you see a physician if you are concerned about that.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Masturbation and hair loss

Masturbation and/or frequent sex will not impact your hair in any way. If you have hair loss, it is from genetic causes and see a doctor about it.

Masturbation and hair loss

mohamedmaatouk,There is no direct relation between these two. However, sex drive is mediated through testosterone in both men and women. So therefore, if someone has increased testosterone that leads  to possible increased sex drive which can be channeled many different ways. Of course in the genetically predisposed individual with AGA, such increased testosterone, which is metabolized to DHT will lead to progression in the baldness! So it is only related indirectly.
