I have a serious question.
Almost 20 years ago I had a bout of recurrent prostatitis. I had been to three doctors and a urologist, and nothing they did was of much help. (especially when the urologist suggested it was an STI :mad:)
After those four doctors, my current family doctor told me that prostatitis is like the common cold, in that there could be any number of causes and there is no real cure for it. He said the one thing that seems to help is frequent orgasm.
Over the years, especially lately now that I’m in my 40s, when I would go a few days without orgasm, my urine flow was less than optimal. I assumed it was because of the no orgasm/prostate situation.
I have a renewed effort to quit my “bad habits.” I’m now on day 20 of being "chaste.’ (my wife, because of her own medical condition, and I rarely have sexual relations). During the first couple days of my “chastity” I noticed a bit of a problem with urination. I brushed it off as mind over matter and everything seemed to work out o.k. Over the past couple days, however, (especially a few minutes ago), I feel like it’s becoming a real problem. Strong urge to go, weak flow, and dribbling afterward.
Based on my experience, I know how to deal with it. Frankly, a “medically” necessary orgasm has all the appeal of…well, none at all.
Advice? I mean, is this a situation of do it and then confess it? I don’t want to go through life with prostate trouble if I can avoid it.
Please don’t flame me on this. :o I’ve tried any number of antibiotics, been examined, and nothing helped.
p.s. I posted this in the “impurity” group, but hoped there might be help available here, too.
