Male Masturbation Men Prostatitis Zinc
Recommened dosage of zinc and saw palmetto for a 17 year old male who has nonbacterial prostatits from excessive masturbation?
Prostatitis therapy: Recommended Zinc for a male over 18 is 11mg daily, toxicity happens if you take over 40mg daily. So safe and effective dose is 11-40mg daily. If you are on a vegan diet, double those numbers! Saw Palmetto is not FDA approved and has a long list of serious side effects so I do not recommend taking it. ...Read more
Hey Doc, do us men need to masturbate in order to prevent prostate cancer or prostatitis? What happens if we choose not to masturbate at all? Thanks
Your choice: Very few young men are able to go without having an ejaculation at least every few days, by whatever means. You need to be able to sit still, focus on work and learning, and get to sleep at night. There is no "controlled study", but there's some evidence that "heroic abstinence" puts you at greater risk for prostate hyperplasia ("hypertrophy") and prostatitis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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

I was diagnosed with prostatitis, my doctor suggested that I masturbate at least one time a day. Is that normal?
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
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
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
