Prostatitis and masturbation?

I've been diagnosed with prostatitis and my doctor said that I should not have sex for a while but I've read that masturbation helps you to get rid of the infected semen and it helps the proccess he gave me some antibiotics(ciproxin) but I've also read that too much masturbation can cause prostate disorders who's telling the truth..

(sorry for my bad english)

Re: Prostatitis and masturbation?

I also want to ask that can it be a psychological illness afterwards because I'm too embarressed I can't go and socialise because of the symptoms and I fear that when I get cured they will continue

Re: Prostatitis and masturbation?

Good question. Seems to me like there's a ton of mixed information out there. Some things I read say frequent ejaculation helps keep semen from "going bad" or causing complications. Other things I read say dont over do it because it will cause your prostate to be inflamed from being overused but yet theres really no exact number to it

Re: Prostatitis and masturbation?

I have had this before and my Dr said to masturbate more often actually to get things "moving" again...I was 19 when I had it...

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.
