I’m a married man who likes to masturbate because I work far from home. But I feel stomach pains after I ejaculate. What is wrong?

Dr Eve answers:

Masturbation is healthy and very useful, especially when you are in a long distance relationship. There’s no need to feel guilty about it. It is unfortunate that you are having these pains. It is not uncommon for men to have cramps and contractions in their stomachs after they ejaculate. It is usual to feel pain when your stomach muscles

cramp. Try to relax and stop worrying. If not, then try taking over the- counter medication before masturbating and see if that helps. Otherwise go to your doctor.
