Unlikely: Unless masturbation involves in fingering urethral meatus. Suggest urinate after sex or master nation. Don't withhold urination. Wear cotton underwear ; avoid thongs. Shower, rather than bathe ; never use bubble-bath. Avoid constipation. Spread thighs as widely as possible with urination.

Proven infection?: Masturbation does not cause urinary infection. Frequent masturbation however may irritate the genitalia and lead to discomfort with urination. A urine culture will verify whether or not you are actually having infection. Have your urine tested appropriately with your doctor to guide proper therapy and treatment.

Different: Usally pills are pescribed to relax the bladder. There are a number of them but all fall in 2 groups: antimuscarinic group and beta 3 adrenergic receptor agonists. Less commonly botox is injected in the bladder wall. Rarely surgery using bowel to enlarge the bladder. Best wishes.
