Vigorous massage is: Prostate massage is used in clinical practice rarely to diagnose chronic bacterial prostatitis.

are doctors trained in prostate milking or they just realize how to do it vs prostate massage. Does there always need to be medical evidence for it?

Highly controversy..: Practicing prostate massage has had its fan & fun, smiling & frowning for decades. Theoretically, massaging prostate probably may produce tissue "contusion" to express existing unwanted fluid into systemic circulation. Nonetheless, occasional patients swore by its "wonder" in relieving "prostatitis"-related Sx. Nowadays, its once sworn-by practice has dwindled, in time, becoming a history. ...Read more

How far do I have to insert my finger for a prostate massage?

Being Sexual: Actually this is not a question you take to the physician. It is inappropriate for a physician to tell you to have or how to have sex. This crosses a lot of our ethical boundaries. I often recommend that my patients have at least one guide book to sex so that the activities can be described and learned about in clear and adult language. I have them start with "the joy of sex". ...Read more

I've been reading that a prostate massage can help hemorrhoids...Is this true?

What are U reading?: The mechanism of hemorrhoid development (see past healthtap answers) has little to do with the prostate. Therefore, mechanical and prolonged digital massage of the prostate may serve other purposes but should have little positive impact on hemorrhoids. Are you sure your problem is really hemorrhoids? And, more to the point, find another source of medical information please. ...Read more

Sure: Yes, spit can have germs that people should be afraid of, such as chlamydia and gonorrhea (both can infect the throat, in which case the germs will be in the spit). Condoms, when used correctly, are safe from infection regardless if they are used on a penis, a finger, or on anything else. However, condoms used incorrectly are not safe. ...Read more
