What causes a chronic bacterial prostatitis?

What causes a chronic bacterial prostatitis?

Not all prostatitis: Is bacterial. Perhaps prostate and seminal vesicle congestion may be irritating? We call prostatis when we cannot make a more specific diagnosis, and you suffer irritative effects. Commonly, anti-biotics are used, and anti-inflammatories. But sex, too much or too little, has no established role. Having sex can elevate the psa test, however. ...Read more

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

I've read from several articles that frequent masturbation can cause prostatic hyperemia and thus cause prostatitis. Is that real?

I've read from several articles that frequent masturbation can cause prostatic hyperemia and thus cause prostatitis. Is that real?

Reading is good: Reading is good, and makes a young person well-rounded and wiser about affairs of the world. One's prostate gland does not know where one's penis is (for example, outside the girl vs. Inside the girl), and one's prostate does not know how the penis is being stimulated (for example, with hands vs. Inside the girl). 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

Is masturbation medically recommended for males with prostatitis?

Is masturbation medically recommended for males with prostatitis?

May help.: Chronic non-bacterial prostatitis (NBP) is the most common type. Young men who are single and suffering from NBP must be informed about their illness in detail and, if they are not doing so, they should be encouraged to ejaculate regularly, for example by masturbation in the absence of a sexual relationship with a partner. Normal sexual activity usually decreases the incidence of prostatitis. ...Read more

Doc said its prostatitis & weak nerve system due to mastrbation in past, but didn't masturbate that much, will my nerve heal over time by itself, scared!

Bs: That doctor told you absolute nonsense. Masturbation does not lead to prostatitis - ask your quack doctor to show any medical studies that say otherwise. I'm not sure what you mean by weak nerve system. Aggressive masturbation or sex can lead to nerve injury but that is rare and should heal. ...Read more

Here are some...: Your taking these drugs led me to assume that you have been evaluated & counseled by professionals for your urinary symptoms, who should be the ones knowing why these drugs were prescribed and what may be expected. All other online inquiry would not be good enough to give opinions for your individual situations. So, ask them except you do not trust them or just want to hear what you like to hear. ...Read more

Despite not having sex for quite a long time I ejaculated frequently through masturbation. How come I've been diagnosed with congestive prostatitis?

See answer: So-called "congestive prostatitis" usually reserved for those men with symptoms of prostatitis, possible hx of prostate fluid urethral discharge due to overflow, a "boggy" feeling gland on digital exam, and usually (but not always) associated with and due to infrequent ejaculation (sexual and mastubation). Some "stimulated" men with regular ejaculation just produce high amounts of prostate fluid. ...Read more

Whenever I masturbate (but I don't ejaculate). I feel discomfort in perineum but discomfort goes when penis becomes soft. Is this due to prostatitis?

Expect this: This is caused by fluids shifts, especially increased volume in your seminal vesicles from the sexual excitement. Your choosing to go unsatisfied and keep the pressure up is your business, but I hope it's not from a superstitious reason. You may want to talk with your hernia surgeon about this. ...Read more
