And alcohol has an irritating effect on the mucous membrane of the bladder. All of these can lead to difficulty urinating. Accordingly, if this delicate problem already exists, then alcoholic beverages will only exacerbate it. But if prostatitis is not in the acute stage now, then alcohol will not worsen the situation.
According to urologist Ruslan Kornilov, the issue with the amount of allowed alcohol is relative: for someone, a glass is enough to start problems with urinary retention, and someone can drink beer in mugs – and nothing.
Prevention of prostatitis in men
As a rule, men experience inflammation of the prostate gland at the age of 20-40 years. Inflammation is caused by sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), bacterial infections, circulatory disorders in the pelvic organs, and stagnation of secretion in the prostate gland.
To prevent problems with the prostate, the doctor advises to lead a healthy lifestyle, engage in therapeutic exercises and eat right. It is also important to have a regular sex life and observe hygiene in this matter. You should also be regularly examined by a urologist.
Kornilov explained that men over 40 need to donate blood for PSA (prostate specific antigen) once a year. This is necessary for the diagnosis of prostate cancer. It is also important to do an ultrasound and be checked for sexually transmitted infections.
health benefits of masturbation
Scientists have found that regular masturbation or sex reduces the risk of developing a prostate. To reduce the likelihood of a dangerous illness by a third, love joys should happen at least 21 times a month. How this mechanism works is not yet clear, but there is a version that sex normalizes hormonal levels.
