The prostate is very important for the human body as it synthesizes the substance that is part of sperm. Inflammatory processes in the prostate are called prostatitis. This disease affects erection as well as the urination process, which in turn affects a person's emotional state. In advanced cases, prostatitis turns into prostate adenoma, often the disease is accompanied by vasculitis or urethritis.
The occurrence of acute or chronic prostatitis affects the entire body of a man, and first of all, the organs of the genitourinary system. At the same time, sexual life also suffers, since against the background of the inflammatory process in the prostate, erectile dysfunction and potency problems can be observed.
This condition significantly reduces a man's quality of life and requires the appointment of therapy. At the same time, many patients wonder if it is possible to have sex in the treatment of prostatitis and if it will lead to the progression of the disease?
Is it possible to have sex with prostatitis
Since young people can get sick with prostatitis, not just retirees, and they are full of strength and energy, of course they are interested in whether it is possible to have sex with prostatitis. The opinion of experts on the subject can be divided into two categories: some defend the idea of prolonged sexual abstinence, while others defend the idea that one should not stop having an active sex life. In fact, prostatitis is not the cause of impotence, but the pain after orgasm forces men to give up carnal pleasures.
Of course, with an advanced form of the disease, an attempt at lovemaking is unlikely to be beneficial, but with inflammation, the prostate should be massaged. The best massage is performed from the inside, during the act of ejaculation, as the muscles contract, which ensures the movement of sperm. The act of ejaculating will be an excellent addition to prostate massage or even its substitute if for some reason it is impossible to massage. In addition, with complete sexual abstinence, there are negative consequences such as stagnation of blood in the genitals, testosterone levels decrease, the need for activity of the prostate decreases, so its function disappears. These consequences further aggravate the situation and can lead to an exacerbation of the disease.
But on the other hand, too frequent ejaculation can cause harm. Some men, having learned that having sex has a positive effect on the inflamed prostate, may start an active sex life without much observing their partners, which will negatively affect the situation. Every female body has a special microflora, which may not be compatible with male microflora. In addition, she can be a carrier of an infectious or fungal disease, so unprotected sex can only lead to an inflammatory process. Therefore, it is advisable to make love with your regular partner to reduce the risk of complications.
In the absence of a permanent partner, it is necessary to clean the seminal ducts with the help of masturbation. Since ejaculation often occurs prematurely with prostatitis, you can start delaying the moment of orgasm, temporarily stop the friction, and then resume it again. But you must remember precautions and not overload an already weakened body. You can't get more than one ejaculation a day, but not less than one ejaculation a week.
Causes of prostatitis
There are several common forms of this disease:
- Acute prostatitis has symptoms characteristic of all inflammatory processes: chills, pain in the affected area, fever. Sometimes, during urination, whitish or colorless purulent formations come out of the channel. In some cases, acute prostatitis leads to sepsis and requires hospitalization. The cause of the disease is an infection that affects the prostate. Additional factors that affect the development of the disease:
- Irregular sex life, prolonged abstinence;
- delayed urination;
- It is not an active way of life;
- Diseases of the genitourinary system;
- Have bad habits.
- The theory of chemical inflammation, according to which inflammation occurs as a result of urine penetration into prostate tissues. This requires increased urinary pressure, which can be caused by obstructions in the urinary tract (eg, semen residue).
- The immunological theory suggests that prostatitis manifests in response to various antigens that have been deposited in prostate tissues.
- The neurogenic theory states that neurogenic inflammation occurs under the influence of biologically active substances that are released at nerve endings.
The earlier the treatment of prostatitis starts, the better, so early detection of the disease is one of the key factors. In case of suspicion, it is necessary to contact a urologist, who will collect samples and analyze urine and blood, in addition to prescribing the appropriate treatment.
To treat prostatitis, medical methods are used, the course of treatment of which can last up to 4 weeks:
- Use of antibiotics to suppress infection or bacterial activity.
- The use of alpha-blockers, which facilitate the course of the disease by acting on adrenergic receptors.
- The use of anti-inflammatories that act on the inflamed gland.
- The use of herbal remedies that relieve symptoms.
- hormone therapy.
In addition to medical treatment, the following methods are used:
- prostate massage;
- LOD therapy;
- Relaxation exercises;
- In case of exacerbation, surgical intervention is used.
