Hello, my name's Mike and I'm 18 years old. I was recently diagnosed with prostatitis and I'm on anti-biotics. The doctor never really told me what the cause for the prostatitis was except that I had an infection.
I was wondering if masturbation caused this problem, and if was safe to masturbate while I'm on the medication.
Hmm, ok then. Thanks for the help. I was just afraid because the night before I got prostatitis I masturbated and then the night before I had another flare-up I also masturbated. I was wondering if they were linked.

Since most of us are mastubating most of the time, it might look that way.
Masturbation is good for the prostate. Men who masturbate more, are less likely to have prostate trouble, especially when they get older.
I doubt masturbation caused your prostatitis. A diagnosis of prostititius is often entered when they can't figure out anything else. Some men will have prostititis symptoms following unprotected oral sex, or it can just be something that happens. I hope the antibiotics work for you, as often times they don't and you can have some signs of discomfort for months or longer.
Thank you everyone, you've been a big help. I have two days on the anti-biotics left and my prostate hasn't flared up since the second time on Saturday. I think the anti-biotics are working good. Thank you everyone.
