Prolonged abstinence contributes to the development of chronic prostatitis, a condition characterized by congestion and swelling of the prostate gland in males. The prostate gland is a part of the male reproductive system and produces prostatic fluid, an essential component of semen. In individuals with prostatitis, the prostate becomes congested, leading to the secretion of inflammatory substances.

When patients abstain from sexual activities for an extended period, the accumulation of inflammatory substances within the prostate becomes prolonged as they are unable to be discharged promptly. This accumulation further exacerbates the progression of the disease.

According to traditional Chinese medicine, there is a belief that blockages can lead to pain. In this context, regular sexual activity plays a beneficial role in promoting the drainage of prostatic fluid, thus alleviating the painful symptoms associated with chronic prostatitis. Timely and regular ejaculation helps to clear the prostate ducts and expel inflammatory substances from the body.

Abnormal sexual life can easily induce prostatitis, such as excessive sexual life, masturbation, interruption of sexual intercourse, and excessive inhibition of sexual life, which can cause prostate congestion and induce prostatitis. If the couple lives separately, the sexual pressure will not be released long. Over time, it will also cause chronic prostatitis.

Abstinence for too long will aggravate prostatitis. Mortifying for a long time may cause prostate fluid to accumulate in the prostate for a long time, which can easily lead to bacterial prostatitis or induce sterile inflammation. These inflammations can cause congestion and swelling of the prostate, thus compressing the prostate part of the urethra, resulting in poor urination.

In addition, the enlarged prostate may also affect the nerves around the prostate, causing pain in the patient's pelvic floor. Long-term abstinence will lead to excessive accumulation of male sexual energy, which is more likely to have an erection, leading to constant congestion of the male prostate, affecting the average production and excretion function of the prostate and leading to the symptoms of prostatitis in men. Therefore, for ordinary men, regular sex life can avoid prostatitis. 

Therefore, patients with long-term abstinence should pay attention to the possibility of prostatitis and make corresponding rest.

When prostatitis occurs, moderate sex or masturbation can help remove prostate fluid and relieve blood stasis in the prostate, which is of particular significance for protecting or restoring prostate function. And you should pay attention to hygiene at ordinary times to prevent bacterial infection. You can go to the urology department for treatment if you suspect prostatitis. When prostatitis is diagnoses, herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill is a better way to cure it.

In addition to prostatitis caused by long-term abstinence, other causes of prostatitis include:

Prostatitis is the most common urinary system disease in men under 50, and the incidence trend is younger. About 50% of men have prostatitis almost at some point, which is one of the main diseases in the urology clinic.

Generally, the prostate is congested for a long time due to reduced body resistance, excessive fatigue, and sexual activity (including masturbation), providing an opportunity for infection in the pathogenic body.

Bad habits. Abnormal prostate congestion is caused by bad habits such as frequent sexual life, excessive masturbation, sedentary, long-term driving, cycling, horse riding, alcoholism, eating spicy food, and catching a cold. The prevalence rate of some occupations that require long-term sedentary is relatively high. For drivers and office workers, sitting for a long time leads to poor pelvic blood reflux, and chronic congestion of the pelvic cavity (including the prostate) slowly occurs, resulting in prostatitis.

Pathogenic microbial infection: bacteria, protozoa, fungi, and viruses may become the source of infection, leading to prostatitis. In addition to blood and lymphatic disease, the direct spread of pathogens is a prevalent mode of infection. When men urinate, their urine passes through the prostate, and urine bacteria infect the prostate. Therefore, when prostatitis occurs repeatedly and can't be cured long, his wife should also check for urinary or reproductive tract infections. Therefore, husband and wife are encouraged to treat together.

Mental anxiety, depression, and fear: it is often because you don't understand prostatitis, so you will have a heavy psychological burden after getting it, which exaggerates the degree and scope of physical discomfort. And it has a severe negative effect on the treatment and aggravates the condition.

Zinc is closely related to the onset of prostatitis. Prostate fluid is one of the tissues with the highest zinc content in the body. The zinc content in semen is 100 times higher than in plasma, indicating that zinc plays a vital role in maintaining the function and structure of the prostate and other accessory organs. The study found that the zinc content in the serum and prostate fluid of patients with prostatitis, prostate hyperplasia, and prostate cancer decreased.
