Prostatitis is a common disease. In daily life, if an adult man suffer from acute prostatitis, a problem will be very disturbing to him. Is it needed to abstain from sex? In fact, whether the abstinence is needed, it should be according to the patient's own condition.
Prostatitis is usually classified into several types: acute bacterial prostatitis, chronic bacterial prostatitis, chronic infectious prostatitis or chronic non-infectious prostatitis, and asymptomatic prostatitis.

After getting prostatitis, the patient usually can have the uncomfortable symptoms such as frequent urination, urgent urination, painful urination, burning sensation when urinating, and dull pain in the perineum and lower abdomen. Sometimes, painful symptoms can also occur in the lower back, inner thighs, testicles, penis, and around the anus, affecting the male life quality heavily.
Besides, prostatitis can be able to make male sexual function declined, inducing symptoms such as seminal emission, premature ejaculation, and impotence. If left untreated for too long, it will lead to male infertility.
In order to make prostatitis get better quickly, some people think that it is necessary to abstain from sex completely when suffering from the disease, while others think that you can have a normal sex life, and excessive abstinence will aggravate the disease. Therefore, what should male patients do exactly?

You may also experience pain and discomfort during the sexual life, which really affects the sexual experience.
However, patients with chronic prostatitis can have sexual life appropriately. This is because when suffering from chronic prostatitis, pathogenic microorganisms and their decomposition products are easy to mix in the prostatic fluid. If not discharged in time, it will be easy to corrupt and degenerate into semen stasis. Having sexual life regularly is conduce to the seminal fluid discharge and can help to reduce inflammatory gland fluid, which has a certain auxiliary effect on treating chronic prostatitis.
Generally speaking, when the acute prostatitis is solved, patients can have sexual life appropriately. And patients with chronic prostatitis can have sex once every 5 days, 7 days or 10 days based on the age. Unmarried or single men can have regular ejaculation through moderate masturbation. Of course, when having sex, patients with chronic prostatitis patient need to use a condom to prevent pathogenic semen from getting into the sexual partner's vagina and causing an infection. 
More importantly, don’t overlook the treatment, if you have acute prostatitis, you should get treated in time. Usually, antibiotics can be taken for one or two weeks. If left untreated for too long, it will turn into a chronic one, and in this case, the herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill can be helpful, which can efficiently kill bacteria, improve blood circulation and tone up the prostate health.
