There are times when men relieve their usual sexual stress by masturbating. Although this can make men relaxed, in addition, there may be a disease crisis lurking. For example, excessive masturbation can cause prostatitis. Therefore, males should pay attention to self-stimulation moderation and actively accept the treatment for early recovery health.

Why does excessive masturbation cause prostatitis?

In fact, in essence, masturbation and sex life are not much different; appropriate self-stimulation also helps to relieve sexual pressure to avoid all kinds of discomfort caused by sexual repression. The general health of unmarried young people, as long as there are no discomfort symptoms, 1-2 times a week is a normal phenomenon.

However, once masturbation is too frequent, it may lead to chronic prostatitis. When sexually excited, the prostate will be in a state of congestion, making the genital organs localized blood flow stagnation. Long-term congestion will create a suitable environment for the growth of bacteria, and bacteria produce toxins that will directly damage the local tissues, resulting in the body's free radicals increasing, further aggravating the local tissue damage, thus forming a vicious circle.

In addition, the prostate itself has a tough membrane. If the glandular ducts are often blocked by pathogens and necrotic tissue, on the one hand, it is difficult for drugs to enter the lesion to play a role; on the other hand, the toxins and pathogens in the lesion can not come out, which leads to this condition is difficult to be cured, easy to repeat.

Therefore, frequent self-stimulation can cause prostatitis, and it may lead to frequent urination, urinary urgency, perineal pain, increased secretion, and other uncomfortable symptoms. In severe cases, there may be symptoms of sexual dysfunction, premature ejaculation, impotence, sexual frigidity, and so on.

In addition, men who masturbate frequently may suffer from memory loss, poor sleep quality, poor concentration, and insomnia. Finally, if men are in their reproductive years, prolonged excessive self-stimulation may also lead to decreased sexual function, which may also affect sperm quality and reduce fertility.

However, there is no need for panic and excessive anxiety for those who have been diagnosed. Clinical cure or remission can be achieved with active treatment and attention to good living habits.

Masturbation-induced prostatitis is mostly a chronic non-bacterial condition. If the symptoms are mild, patients should first get rid of the triggers and quit the bad habit. Secondly, set up correct values of sexual behavior, adjust the psychological state, and restore and accept correct sexual behavior. Finally, patients should maintain proper rest. Patients should pay more attention to rest, reasonable arrangement of work, and rest time, not to do strenuous exercise within a short period.

If the symptoms are more serious, it can also be improved by medication, which requires the use of antibiotics under the guidance of a doctor, such as quinolones, cephalosporins, macrolides, tetracyclines, and penicillin antibiotics. For aseptic prostatitis, conventional antibiotic medication, the effect is not apparent but may also lead to the emergence of drug resistance in patients.

Patients can choose the Chinese medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill, which follows the principle of internal regulation to cure the root, external nutrition to cure the cause. It activates blood circulation and removes blood stasis, clearing away heat and detoxifying the body. It can fundamentally regulate the male urogenital system to achieve the effect of curing the disease at the root.

Masturbation causes aseptic prostatitis, which is more common in young men, primarily due to the lack of sexual knowledge of young men, premature masturbation, and too much and too frequent masturbation. Patients do not have to worry too much as long as they quit the bad habit of masturbation, and then, with active treatment, they are ultimately recoverable.

In addition to excessive masturbation, patients also need to break these bad habits.

1. Not drinking water

Many men dislike drinking water, which leads to concentrated urine. The accumulation of harmful and toxic substances in the urine can easily flow back into the prostate duct, making it easy to develop prostatitis.

2. Prolonged sitting

Men, such as long-distance drivers, programmers, and office workers, often sit for long periods due to work, sitting for 4 to 5 hours. On the one hand, prolonged sitting increases the pressure on the prostate from the abdomen; on the other hand, the sitting position aligns the urethra and the prostate on the same plane, causing urine and bacteria in the urethra to flow back into the gland duct, leading to prostatitis.

3. Excessive alcohol

Men like to drink alcohol and enjoy it. However, getting drunk can harm the body and even the prostate. After heavy drinking, alcohol causes the capillaries throughout the body to become congested, leading to mild edema, including the prostate. Chronic congestion and swelling of the prostate can easily lead to infection.

4. Holding urine

Frequent holding of urine in men can increase bladder pressure, causing excessive bladder filling and thinning of the bladder wall, leading to bladder swelling and congestion and reducing bladder elasticity and contractility. Due to the proximity of the prostate to the bladder, it is prone to chronic congestion and can trigger chronic aseptic prostatitis. In addition, holding urine can also easily lead to urine reflux, leading to chemical prostatitis. Certain pathogens in urine can also cause bacterial prostatitis.
