prostatitis and masturbation

I am 21 and taking norflaxacin tablets for suspected chronic prostatitis, I have been given a 6 week course and am on day 6 at the moment. The main symptom has been an inflamed urethra, burning after ejaculation, some mild burning occasionally on urinating, and lower back pain. I was just wondering whether I should masturbate at all while I am taking the tablets, as this is what causes me most pain and discomfort, however I read somewhere that regular ejaculation will help??

Will the tablets take the full 6 weeks to get rid of the inflammation, or will this disappear sooner?

Re: prostatitis and masturbation

i decided to masturbate after 7 days on the tablets, it burned a little and then was uncomfortable afterwards, however my semen was a bit off-colour, something i have not noticed before. like a slight green tint to it. same consistency and everything though. for a few days before this, my prostate area was increasingly noticeable, more than usual, a mild burning feeling. is it possible that the norflaxacin aggravates it a little to get the 'infection' out, before it gets better? was this off-coloured semen a result of the tablets clearing out infection??

thank you.

Re: prostatitis and masturbation

Ejaculate frequently. Getting antibiotics to the prostate gland is difficult. With frequent ejaculation, it is more likely the drugs will get to the gland as you are releasing any congestion built up.
