My gynecologist just recently put me on progesterone to see if it would induce my period. I have shamefully masturbated a few times while I have been taking this prescribed medication. Will this have negative effects on my body?

However, if you have grown up in a culture and/or religious community where masturbation is considered wrong or immoral, you may feel ashamed for feeling sexual pleasure. Masturbation will not have any negative effects on your body or interfere with the medicine you have been prescribed to induce your period.
