I have ic and prostatits. soak arousal or masturbation

Customer Question
I have ic and...

I have ic and prostatits. Sexual soak arousal or masturbation without ejaculation seems to worsen my urinary urgency. Could masturbation without ejaculation worsen prostatitis?

Doctor's Assistant: Is the condition chronic, or acute?

Had been a chronic issue for 8 years.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Was diagnosed in 2015 with ic based on glomerulations found during cystoscopy.

Hello and welcome to justanswer,I'm happy to consult you today

Masterbation and sex with ejaculation is a natural process and it should not be interfered with.

Do not masterbate without ejaculation as this can harm the ejaculatory system and aggravate the prostatic problems you are already having.

I hope this helps.

Do let me know if you have any queries.

Thank you

Regards

Its just that this contradicts what other urologists on this very site have said.
Urologist: medicaldoctor, Urologist replied 8 months ago

Masterbation without ejaculation or stopping ejaculation is not advised.

Since it is making your urinary urgency worse,So you should refrain from it for some time to look if it gets better or not.

Thanks. I've read that this is just one of the possible symptoms of interstitial cystitis.
Urologist: medicaldoctor, Urologist replied 8 months ago

If you have an active infection like interstitial cystitis or prostatitis,you should be taking antibiotics for it.

What tests have you had?urinalysis?ultrasound?
