Men's health for the majority of the stronger sex is automatically equal to the male strength, sexual desires and opportunities. One of the reasons for the weakening of potency, premature ejaculation is inflammation of the internal secretion organ - the prostate gland. Massage is not the last in the complex therapy. How to massage the prostate in order not to harm, but to restore the lost functions?
When do you need prostate massage?
The endocrine gland, the prostate gland, is responsible for the production of seminal fluid. The prostate is heterogeneous, it consists of individual slices in which the secret is produced. In case of malfunction of the prostate gland, the secret stagnates in the lobules, accumulates, causing inflammation. If measures to normalize the gland are not taken in a timely manner, prostatitis develops.
Scientists say that prostatitis is getting younger every year, and if at the end of the last century, prostate gland inflammation was diagnosed in men over forty, today 255-year-old men suffer from this ailment.
How to learn prostatitis?
- pain and delay in urination;
- violation of erection;
- premature ejaculation;
- pelvic pain
If such symptoms occur, it is not worth visiting a urologist for a visit.
Causes of prostatitis
Like any other disease, prostatitis is easier to prevent than to cure. Prerequisites for the development of inflammation of the prostate gland are:
- hypothermia of the body;
- sedentary, sedentary lifestyle;
- infections of the genitourinary system;
- trauma to the pelvic organs;
- tumors in the abdominal cavity and small pelvis;
- improper diet, leading to constipation;
- indirectly influenced by age, since hormonal changes in the male body begin;
Treatment for prostatitis should appoint a specialist. As a rule, it combines medications and physiotherapeutic procedures, among which prostate massage is very popular.
Prostatitis is a rather delicate problem, the prostate gland is massaged through the anus, and not every man will find the courage to attend massage sessions with a specialist in a medical institution. Probably, someone will ask for help from a sexual partner. You can find a lot of information about how to massage the prostate husband. If there is understanding and trust between partners, then it is quite possible to master the technique of self-massage:
- the man becomes in the knee-elbow position, it will facilitate the "access" to the prostate gland;
- the second person is in the back position;
- since this technique teaches how to massage the prostate with a finger, the masseur puts on a rubber glove or fingertip on the hand, lubricates the finger with special grease or petroleum jelly;
- finger is inserted into the anus very carefully, as the sore swollen prostate gives pain;
- the prostate gland is located at a distance of 6-8 cm from the anus, along the upper wall of the rectum. It is a small inhomogeneous seal;
- Massage of the prostate gland begins with gentle strokes, gradually increasing the pressure. Finishing the procedure, the masseur runs his finger along the central groove of the gland.
It must be remembered that movements should be smooth. If the massage causes a sharp pain, then it should be stopped immediately. Since semen stagnation provokes swelling and pain, massage movements should promote the outflow of fluid from the lobules. It is worth paying special attention to its color: if the liquid has a dark yellow or brownish shade, then suppuration may occur.
The duration of one session is a minute - one and a half. First of all, this is due to the unpleasant pain that the massage delivers. The course consists of 10-12 sessions that are done every day or every other day. At the end of the course, the patient is given a break, and then the preventive massage is resumed once a week. How often do massage the prostate during exacerbations, the doctor must decide.
There is an alternative to finger massage - the use of a special medical device, prostate massager. The models differ functionally, but a common feature for all is the ability to massage the prostate gland independently, without any help. When choosing this method of treatment, it should be remembered that a prostate massager should be purchased only at a pharmacy. Such goods will be certified and safe for health.
When prescribing a prostate massage as a measure to combat prostatitis, it is necessary to take into account the contraindications available to the patient:
- acute stage of prostatitis;
- neoplasms (including benign tumors of the prostate gland, organs of the small pelvis);
- inflammation of the bladder, urethra;
- prostate tuberculosis;
- tumors, cracks, inflammation of the rectum
In addition to inflammation of the prostate, men can experience benign proliferation of gland lobe tissue - adenoma. It delivers no less than prostatitis, since the expanding prostate gland pinches the urinary canal, causing impaired urination, sexual functions. The symptoms of both diseases are very similar, and only a specialist can make a correct diagnosis during a comprehensive examination. This is extremely important, as with adenoma massage is contraindicated.
It is believed that making a massage of the prostate with prostate adenoma, the patient can cause serious harm. Additional stimulation of the gland causes rapid cell division and even more proliferation. After such treatment, it will be necessary to consult not the urologist, but the emergency help of a surgeon.
Prostatitis is a rather insidious disease, it may not manifest itself for a long time. Violations of the sexual sphere of modern men blamed on workload, stress, crazy rhythm of life, fatigue, missing the moment when prostatitis can be cured in the initial stage.
In order to prevent the occurrence and development of the disease, men over the age of twenty-five years are advised to carry out a set of special exercises familiar from the physical education classes: “scissors”, “bicycle”, leg outs. From time to time to walk on foot, visit the pool, jog. After thirty, you need to monitor your diet, reduce the consumption of fatty, spicy, salty foods that cause fluid retention, diversify your diet with foods rich in protein and fiber. The chair should be regular.
Fatty heavy food, alcohol and smoking are contraindicated in patients with prostatitis, because they interfere with the blood supply of the prostate.
You should not expect the appearance of the first alarming "bells" in order to visit the urologist's office. Every man should take preventive measures that hinder the development and progression of prostatitis. First of all, regular check-ups are held every six months. If you need to undergo a course of therapeutic massage of the prostate, do not be shy: a specialist in a medical institution will do everything correctly, will not harm health and will not cause unnecessary pain with a careless movement.
