Prostatitis: You can do all of the above. Wait to do ivf until you dr clears you.

No, few days, yes: Don't stop exercising unless it increases discomfort from prostatitis. If attempting IVF, should not masturbate more than every 3-5 days, as may degrade quantity/quality of sperm, which could alter IVF success.
