I hope you find this information helpful and please feel free to leave any comments or questions you may have. Thanks for reading!
Regular prostate massage can help to keep the prostate healthy by helping to clear it of built-up fluids and secretions. This, in turn, can help to prevent the development of conditions such as prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate).
What is prostatitis?
Prostatitis is an inflammation of the prostate gland, a small walnut-shaped organ in men that surrounds the urethra. The prostate gland secretes fluid that helps nourish and transport sperm during ejaculation. Prostatitis can cause urinary symptoms, pain, and sexual difficulties. It can be acute (sudden onset) or chronic (long-term).
What is a prostate massage?
A prostate massage is a massage of the male prostate gland for sexual stimulation or medical purposes. The prostate is located just in front of the rectum and below the bladder. It is about the size of a walnut, and its main function is to produce semen.
How might a prostate massage help prostatitis?
There is no scientific evidence to support the claim that prostate massage can help prostatitis, but some men report that the practice helps them find relief. One theory is that by manually stimulating the prostate, men are able to achieve a better level of drainage, which can help reduce inflammation and pain.
What are the risks of a prostate massage?
Prostate massage is generally safe if done correctly. However, there are a few potential risks that you should be aware of before trying prostate massage. These include:
-Anal fissures. Anal fissures are small tears in the skin around your anus. They can be caused by constipation, diarrhea, or anal sex. If you have an anal fissure, prostate massage can make it worse.
-Infection. Prostate massage can spread bacteria and cause an infection in the prostate gland. This is more likely if you don’t clean the equipment properly or if you have a cut or open sore on your skin.
-Hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids are swollen blood vessels in the anus and rectum. They can be painful and may bleed during bowel movements. Prostate massage can irritate hemorrhoids, which can make them worse.
You should also avoid prostate massage if you have any bleeding disorders or take blood thinners such as warfarin (Coumadin).
How is a prostate massage performed?
A prostate massage is a way to relieve prostate congestion. It involves adding pressure to the prostate from outside the gland. The prostate is located just in front of the rectum.
To reach the prostate, insert a gloved, lubricated finger into the rectum and press on the prostate with a “Come here” gesture. The prostate feels like a large nut and is about the size of a walnut. You can also stimulate the prostate with a sex toy that is specifically designed for this purpose.
What should I expect during and after a prostate massage?
You may feel the need to urinate during a prostate massage. You may also feel the urge to have a bowel movement. If these urges occur, do not resist them. It is important to empty your bladder and bowels before a prostate massage.
Prostate massage should never be painful. If you experience pain during a prostate massage, tell your doctor or healthcare provider immediately.
After a prostate massage, you may feel the urge to urinate again. You may also have some blood in your urine or semen for a day or two after the massage. This is normal and is not cause for concern.
The jury is still out on whether or not prostate massage is an effective treatment for prostatitis. Some studies have shown that it may be helpful, while others have not. If you are considering prostate massage, be sure to talk to your doctor first to see if it is right for you.
