If it's started affecting your day to day activities then it definitely needs attention. I think for you, behavior therapy should be the first option and if there's not much improvement then we can add medicines.
Next Steps
Please consult a psychiatrist.

Hello, Masturbation is very normal and their are certain myths attached to it. Having sexual activity does the same thing. You can do as many times as you get pleasure but examine yourself that you don't have compulsive masturbation. Compulsive masturbation is when a person continues with frequent masturbation and neglecting other works like education, job or social obligations.

Next Steps
Get help early for problems with sexual behavior.Identifying and treating early symptoms may help prevent compulsive sexual behavior from getting worse over time or escalating into a downward spiral of shame, relationship problems and harmful acts. Seek treatment early for mental health disorders. Compulsive sexual behavior may be worsened by depression or anxiety. Identify and seek help for alcohol and drug abuse problems. Substance abuse can cause a loss of control and unhappiness that can lead to poor judgment and may push you toward unhealthy sexual behaviors. Avoid risky situations. Don't jeopardize your health or that of others by putting yourself into situations where you'll be tempted to engage in risky sexual practices.
