What causes a chronic bacterial prostatitis?

Hello I am just 20 years old just diagnosed with prostatitis and admit I do masturbate frequently is it possible that I over did it and that was the cause or could it be combined with other factors?? Thanks

Not related.: Masturbation does not cause prostatitis. In fact, there is some evidence in the literature that masturbation can RELIEVE the symptoms of prostatitis. Also, nearly 100% of men masturbate, but only a small minority ever get prostatitis. If masturbation was causative, then there'd be a lot more men with prostatitis. The cause of non-bacterial prostatitis is not currently known. ...Read more

So, the effects from vaginal sex or masturbation appear identical to one's prostate. ...Read more

Need doctor's help! will masturbation cause prostatitis?

No: Masturbation won't cause prostatitis. In fact, it may a good thing to keep the prostate busy doing what it's supposed to be doing: making seminal fluid. Ejaculation (through masturbation or sex) allows release of that fluid and replacement by a fresh supply. I can't promise there's any scientific basis for this statement, but it's clearly not a bad thing. ...Read more
