Is it bad to masturbate if you have a prostate problem?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Robert Killian
27 years experience in General Practice
Masturbation: Normal: Nope. In fact if you have prostate troubles you may improve the environment in your prostate by regularly emptying it of the semen and sperm. Masturbation is part of the human experience and is a common part of one's sexuality. There is no medical reason to limit masturbation over all.
