(sorry for my bad english)
depends, does the masturbation irritate symptoms ? for example if I ejaculate it burns, burns to urinate after words, I some times get chills and flu like symptoms from masturbating, it also makes my low back pain worse. so I try to avoid masturbating at all. some men with prostatitis have to masturbate because it relieves the symptoms, I know a guy on a forum who has to ejaculate at least everyday or he feels tremendous pressure inside himself, this would be a type of congested prostatitis with relief felt by ejaculating, kind of like when a person has a stopped up nose and can not breath so you blow the snot out of your nose getting rid of congestion.
I actually find when I take an antibiotic if I avoid ejaculating for so many days the antibiotic seems to work better, possibly because the concentration of antibiotic is building up. when you ejaculate prostate fluid comes out with semen so some of the antibiotic would be coming out as well.
follow your doctors advice and see if it helps you.
