My doctor asked me about masturbation and porn?

ok so i am 19 year old vingin guy who has no girlfriend and very less friends to be honest. perhaps none. Also I am suffering from intense hairfall and I can clearly see my scalp so easily. people around me had started looking at me as an elderly person and of course guys make fun of me. I am really depressed 24*7 and get suicidal quite often. Please dont tell me it is not an onky option and shit, I know hairs doesn't matter to most of the people. But to me if my hairs are not proper I feel naked. and I really mean it. And I just dont want to be naked for rest of my life. So the other day one of my relative told me about the famous clinic which is near my hostel [by the way I stay alone at hostel very far from my place]. So as told i vissited there and everything seemed fine till the doctor asked me wheather I masturbate and how much porn do i watch daily. also he said it relates to the release of the testetrone {ignore the spelling} which has its byproduct called DHT which causes hairfall in teen and guys in 20s. large amount of testetrone is released in our body as we ejaculate. So he just focused on how much do I masturbate and how much porn do I watched? Also he made a record of my answers. Ofcourse it seems normal but I am just confused are these questions approprate for me? never heard someone asking or telling such issues to doctor

  • The effect of masturbation on your testosterone levels is unproven, and even if it did affect them it would not be significant enough to cause hair loss. Your masturbation and porn habits are not relevant to hair loss in any competent medical analysis. It might be relevant if you were going to the doctor because you were having issues with sexual dysfunction, but not for this. I'd be very skeptical about this doctor.

  • I'm fucking hairy and I masturbate all the time so that's not true

    • You're 18. I was fucking hairy and masturbated all the time too when I was 18. I masturbate still and am still hairy, but not on my scalp.

  • it may just be a nutritional problem. most doctors know very little, if anything about nutrition. I'd suggest seeing a nutritionist, get some test done to see if your deficient in anything and test for intolerances as well.

  • The doctor is full of crap. Masturbation has nothing to do with hair loss and if that were the case 99% of guys your age would have no hair.

  • Yes, these questions are entirely appropriate.

    • I know that you are young, but part of being an adult and having a relationship with medical or psychological or legal professionals is that you need to answer truthfully any uncomfortable questions or put up with other uncomfortable situations. For instance, when I first saw my doctor 10 years ago, an older woman who is a physicians assistant, took me to a room to do a preliminary first-time examination of me. Part of that exam was that she needed to cup my testicles and feel around for signs of testicular cancer. Each year, my doctor puts his latex gloved finger in my asshole to check out my prostate gland. And he checks my balls too. So, you just have to accept these things. These people are attempting to help you and part of prevention of problems or diagnosis/treatment of problems involves dealing with unsettling questions or actions.

    • cool sounds convensing... that really helped... thanks dude

    • does your regular doctor check your balls and prostate or a special doctor (sort of like a gynecologist for women)?
