Here are some ...: Masturbation would not affect how the prostate functions, but clinically, few/some men may swear by saying they voids easier with better urine flow after masturbation but only for a short time - 1-3 days. However, I would not advise men to masturbate for improving urine flow. If overdone with masturbation, some perineal discomfort may occur resulting from recurrent expected contractions of muscles ...Read more
May not be related?: One would surmise that if one daily masturbates that there is a daily "draining" of prostatic fluids, thus, cleaning out the prostate gland. This said, one would think less prostate engorgement and less "problems". There are other reasons for prostate problems and infections, etc. May be of no consequence, but otherwise may have "beneficial" effect. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The last time I massaged my prostate, I produced notable precum for the first time but I barely came when I masturbated right after. What's going on?
Unusual to see...: You got to have a very long and flexible arm for self prostate massage.

I have diagnosed with prostatis today
I am masturbating Approx 2 times a day since 2 years.
Is masturbating a cause of prostatis?
Here are some...: If you have never had sexual intercourse, for an average healthy man at 16, the odd to have STD or UIT or prostatitis is extremely rare. By your presented clinical scenario, it would be a good idea to refrain from further masturbation for at least 2 weeks and see how such effort may help improve what you feel in the urethra at voiding, since repeated masturbation induces local congestion & strain. ...Read more
Frequency: The amount of fluid ejaculated will be related to how often you masturbate. If you masturbate frequently then you will have less volume. If you "save it up" you will have more. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
I'm 34 years old and I masturbate at least once a day. Would this result in health issues in the future, particularly with my prostate?
Here are some...: At 19, your prostate should be small and smooth so physical movement by whatever the tool used would not hurt the prostate, but does not guarantee to not injure any tissues in contact and irritation. So, exercise due respect to body and its tissue, especially anal canal is meant for poop not for sex - though having explored and exhausted by high intense pleasure-seeking fantasy. More?

Basically yes: It's impossible to do controlled studies. Frequency of ejaculation does not correlate with prostate cancer but may with prostate hyperplasia ("hypertrophy"). Anecdotally, single men who have struggled not to masturbate for whatever reason have had precocious prostate disease, and in any case, trying to abstain to the point of being uncomfortable makes it hard to work, play, even get to sleep. ...Read more
