Prevention of prostatitis in men at home: medications and exercise

Prostatitis develops after forty, and sometimes thirty years, when a man is most active at work and in the family, and a decrease in potential can significantly affect his self-confidence, not only in the face of love, but in all areas of life. Prostatitis itself is not contagious, but one of the causes is that sexually transmitted infections can spread to a patient’s sexual partner.

Main reason

pain in a man with prostatitis

There are several factors that contribute 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 secretory stagnation, and an inactive lifestyle, lack of physical activity causes blood stasis. The results of both processes are the same - swelling of the prostate gland, increased pressure in it, and violation of its function (secretion production and regulation of ejaculation).
  • Uncomfortable temperature conditions on the external genitalia. Too much heat and hypothermia adversely affect men’s health, tight underwear and uncomfortable pants also have a detrimental effect on potency. All this reduces the viability of the spermatozoa.
  • Sexually transmitted infections. This is another danger of an irregular sex life. The participation of infection against the background of congestion in the prostate leads to inflammation, sometimes with serious consequences.

Preventive measures

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. This is the main thing that will allow you to be less vulnerable to harmful effects on the prostate in the future.

In young men and adult men, prostatitis prevention consists of a regular sexual life, preferably with the same partner, physical exercise, and a healthy diet. It is important to undergo regular testing for sexually transmitted infections and treat them in a timely manner, especially if the man regularly has unprotected sex. It should not be protected by disrupted methods of sexual intercourse - this leads to stagnation of prostate secretions, moreover, this is far from the most reliable method of contraception.

There are special exercises for the prevention of prostatitis, it is quite simple and most can be done without getting up from a chair. The essence of this exercise is to tighten and relax different muscle groups on the perineum, thereby eliminating blood stasis in the prostate gland and other organs of the small pelvis. Climbing, running, squatting, sports games (football, volleyball, basketball) are also useful, in winter - skiing and skating.

Medications used to increase potency, such as the well -known Viagra, can also be considered as prevention of prostatitis in men, but only if the dosage is strictly adhered to. Excessive doses, as well as the use of Viagra without subsequent sexual intercourse, in turn, lead to stagnation of prostate secretion and increase the risk of prostatitis. Drugs used in our country to prevent prostatitis and increase potency have the status of dietary supplements, that is, they are not considered drugs and are not subject to certification. These include domestic products such as Men Support and Prost Plus, American medicine - So Palmetto and Pro Formula, and more.

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 a random partner, and treat acute prostatitis in a timely manner.


If prostatitis is diagnosed, it is necessary to treat it as soon as possible, because acute prostatitis that has not healed in time has a tendency to become chronic. To do this, use the medication contained in the tablets. In addition, rectal suppositories are used - they relieve inflammation in acute prostatitis or chronic exacerbation, reduce swelling of the prostate due to congestion, anesthetize surrounding tissues and contribute to the fastest delivery of active substances to the prostate through the rectal wall. You can take it 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 some intense pressure is applied to it. The upper part of the gland during the massage is not affected. Due to the discomfort of the finger method and the disgust associated with it, there are simulators for prostate massage.

Do not lose their value and training 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 completely healed.

Treatment of prostatitis at home involves a healthy diet - fiber -rich vegetables, lean meats and fish, plenty of fluids, limiting alcohol, especially beer. Moderate physical activity and frequent sexual activity are desirable. Folk remedies are used: infusion of balls from pumpkin seeds and honey, elderberry juice, decoction of hazel leaves and bark, chestnut shells. Yet the recommendations described are more of a 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 drug will not give an immediate effect, so it is important to use them together and the best-as directed by a doctor.
