Customer:

No, I was on a very low dose of Statins but this has, with medical approval been discontinued. I need to take ant acid tablets from time to time but that is about it.

Dr. P. Jyoti :

well, in that case there is nothing at all to worry about this

Dr. P. Jyoti :

a good libido at your age is a sign of good health

Dr. P. Jyoti :

dont worry about this at all

Dr. P. Jyoti :

if anything, you should feel good about it!

Dr. P. Jyoti :

masturbation, just like sex, is habit forming

Dr. P. Jyoti :

its a do it or lose it activity

Dr. P. Jyoti :

because you indulge in it you continue to have a tendency for it

Dr. P. Jyoti :

you can continue with it as long as you enjoy it and do not cause any distress to yourself or others

Dr. P. Jyoti :

no harm physically

Dr. P. Jyoti :

but habit forming as i said

Dr. P. Jyoti :

sometimes in dementia also there may be increase of libido

Dr. P. Jyoti :

but obviously this does not apply to you since you are in good enough mental condition to consider this situation

Dr. P. Jyoti :

take care and dont worry about this
