Prostatitis develops after forty, and sometimes thirty years, when a man is most active at work and in the family, and a decrease in potency can significantly undermine his self-confidence, not only on the love front, but in all areas of life. Prostatitis itself is not contagious, but one of its causes is that sexually transmitted infections can spread to the patient's sexual partners.
There are several factors contributing to the development of prostatitis and the resulting decrease in potency:
- Stagnation in the prostate gland. This is one of the main causes of prostatitis. Irregular or promiscuous sex life contributes to the stagnation of the secret, and a sedentary lifestyle, lack of physical activity cause blood stagnation. The result of both processes is the same - edema of the prostate gland, increased pressure in it, and a violation of its functions (secretion production and regulation of ejaculation).
- Uncomfortable temperature conditions of the external genital organs. Overheating and hypothermia adversely affect men's health, tight underwear and uncomfortable trousers also have a bad effect on potency. All this reduces the viability of spermatozoa.
- Sexually transmitted infections. This is another danger of disordered sex life. Accession of infection against the background of congestion in the prostate leads to inflammation, sometimes with serious consequences.
Prevention of prostatitis in men should begin in childhood with the formation of hygiene skills in boys, the ability to choose the right underwear and dress according to the weather. These are the main points that will allow you to be less susceptible to harmful effects on the prostate in the future.
In young men and adult men, the prevention of prostatitis consists in a regular sexual life, preferably with the same partner, physical exercises, and a healthy diet. It is important to get tested regularly for sexually transmitted infections and treat them on time, especially if the man frequently has unprotected intercourse. It should not be protected by the method of interrupted intercourse - this leads to stagnation of the prostate secretion, moreover, this is far from the most reliable method of contraception.
There are special exercises for the prevention of prostatitis, they are quite simple and most of them can be performed without getting up from a chair. The essence of these exercises is to strain and relax different muscle groups of the perineum, thereby eliminating blood stasis in the prostate gland and other organs of the small pelvis. Hiking, running, squats, sports games (football, volleyball, basketball) are also useful, in winter - skiing and skating.
Drugs used to increase potency, such as the well-known Viagra, can also be considered as the prevention of prostatitis in men, but only if the dosage is strictly observed. Excessive doses, as well as the use of Viagra without subsequent sexual intercourse, on the contrary, leads to stagnation of the prostate secretion and increases the risk of prostatitis. The drugs used in our country to prevent prostatitis and increase potency have the status of dietary supplements, that is, they are not considered medicines and are not subject to certification. These include such domestic products as Men Support and Prost Plus, American drugs - So Palmetto and Pro Formula, and many others.
To prevent acute prostatitis from becoming chronic, it is important to cure sexually transmitted infections in a timely and complete manner, avoid unprotected sexual intercourse with random partners, and treat acute prostatitis in time.
If prostatitis is diagnosed, it is necessary to treat it as soon as possible, because acute prostatitis that has not been cured in time has a tendency to become chronic. To do this, use drugs that are available in tablets. In addition, rectal suppositories are used - they relieve inflammation in acute prostatitis or exacerbation of a chronic one, reduce swelling of the prostate due to congestion, anesthetize surrounding tissues and contribute to the fastest delivery of the active substance to the prostate through the wall of the rectum. You can take them as prescribed by a doctor, even at home.
Transrectal prostate massage is also used for the treatment and prevention of prostatitis. The simplest method is digital, when the index or middle finger is inserted into the rectum in a glove lubricated with a special water-based lubricant, the lower lobe of the prostate is determined by touch, and several intense pressures are applied to it. The upper sections of the gland during massage are not affected. Due to the inconvenience of the finger method and the disgust associated with it, there are simulators for prostate massage.
Do not lose their value and exercises for the prevention of prostatitis, they speed up the treatment process, and they are also the prevention of chronic prostatitis, which can occur with acute prostatitis that has not been fully cured.
Treatment of prostatitis at home involves a healthy diet - fiber-rich vegetables, lean meat and fish, plenty of fluids, limiting alcohol, especially beer. Moderate physical activity and regular sexual activity are desirable. Folk remedies are used: resorption of balls from pumpkin seeds and honey, elderberry juice, decoctions of hazel leaves and bark, chestnut shells. And yet the recommendations described are more prevention of prostatitis in men than its treatment. Folk methods allow you to maintain health and well-being longer.
All methods of prevention and treatment of prostatitis are effective in combination, the use of any one remedy will not give an instant effect, so it is important to use them together and best of all - as directed by a doctor.
