Prevention of prostatitis in men at home: Medications and exercise

The main reasons

Pain in men with prostatitis

There are several factors that contribute to the development of prostatitis and the resulting reduced potential:

  • Stagnation in the prostate gland. This is one of the main causes of prostatitis.

The result of both processes is the same - swelling of the prostate gland, increase in pressure in it and disruption of its functions (production of secretion and regulation of ejaculation).
  • Uncomfortable temperature conditions of the external genitalia. Overheating and hypothermia negatively affect men’s health, tight underwear and uncomfortable pants also adversely affect potency. All this reduces the viability of sperm.
  • Sexually Transmitted Infections. This is another threat to a disordered sex life. Connection of infection on the background of swelling of the prostate causes inflammation, sometimes with serious consequences.
