In brief: 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.
