Date:2023-03-09 click:0

Prostatitis is a common male urinary system disease, divided into acute prostatitis and chronic prostatitis. The former is a bacterial infection, and the latter is a glandular lesion. About two million people in the United States have prostatitis yearly, and the incidence is as high as 5%-8%. Prostatitis can cause testes, pain in the pelvic area, and abnormal urination, such as urgency, frequent urination, and dysuria.


Holding back urine will cause the pressure in the bladder to increase and the sexual organs to be congested. If this situation cannot be improved in time, it will affect the function of the prostate glands. Over time, inflammation will form prostatitis. In addition, holding back urine can also cause urine to flow backward. Pathogens in urine can cause bacterial prostatitis.

Holding back urine not only aggravates the burden on the bladder but also increases the burden on the prostate. The prostate is a male urinary valve. If you want to hold the urine, the valve must be closed tightly, making the gonad nervous in high tension. If the nervousness is high for a long time, it will cause nerve necrosis and form a lesion.

Long-term holding back urine can also make the toxic substances in the urine cannot be discharged from the body in time, extending the survival and reproduction of pathogenic bacteria in urine, and it is easy to induce the occurrence of bacterial infections. Long-term urination can also cause physiological and psychological tension. The content of tea ketones in the blood increases, and the congestion and edema of the prostate are not conducive to prostate health. At the same time, it will also cause local bacterial reproduction and distribution. Once the immune function decreases, it will cause prostatitis. Therefore, do not hold back urine.

In addition to avoiding holding back urine, what other methods can prevent prostatitis?

1. Drink more water. It will promote urination. The high urine concentration will bring stimuli to the prostate, and long-term stimulation harms the prostate. Drinking more water can not only dilute the blood but also effectively dilute urine concentration.

2. Control sexual life. Frequent sexual life will cause the prostate to be congested for a long time, leading to an enlargement of the prostate. Therefore, pay attention to controlling sex, avoid repeated congestion of the prostate, and give the prostate fully recover and repair. Of course, excessive abstinence can cause discomfort, which is also not good for the prostate.

3. Relax. Stress in life may increase the risk of prostate enlargement. Clinical shows that when the pressure of life is reduced, the prostate symptoms will be soothing. Thus, they should always be relaxed as much as possible.

4. Take a warm bath. A warm bath can alleviate the tension of muscles and the prostate and slow down the symptoms of discomfort. Frequent bathing baths are very beneficial to patients with prostate disease. If you sit in the perineum with warm water every day, you can also get good results.

5. Pay attention to hygiene. Men's scrotum secretes more sweat and poor ventilation, which causes bacteria to invade the body, which causes prostatitis, prostate hypertrophy, and decreased sexual function. If you don't pay attention in time, severe infection will occur. Therefore, insisting on cleaning the perineum is beneficial to prevent prostatitis. In addition, the external genitals should be washed before sexual life.

6. Pay attention to keeping warm. Cold can enhance the sympathetic nerve, which leads to an increase in urethral pressure and causes reverse flow.

7. Avoid friction. Long-term frictional perineum will aggravate the symptoms of the prostate. Therefore, men should ride fewer bicycles to avoid bicycles or motorcycles for long times or long distances.

8. Develop good living habits. Do not drink alcohol, and eat less spicy and stimulating foods to avoid repeated prostatic hyperemia and aggravated local pain.
