I have chronic prostate inflammation - due to edging?
I suffer from premature ejaculation. I had been practicing edging for about a year and a half, from January 2004 to summer 2005. In December 2005, I went to an ultrasound medical examination which had nothing to do with my prostate, but the doctor noticed that my prostate was round, and therefore that it wasn’t really in perfect health. That was the first sign of the problems to come. The pains in the area above my penis began in summer 2006, when I was diagnosed with chronic prostate inflammation.
Since then, I’ve been taking some medication which serves as some “alpha blocker” (whatever that means, I am terrible with biology). This medication has served me well in relieving me of the symptoms, but it is not the cure, and in the past few months I had to increase the dosage I am taking. BTW, I am 30.
Since “regular” doctors were unable to help me, I turned to the alternative methods, and, fortunately, I met a doctor who prepares really great teas, and I have had some success with that treatment.
However, I am not here to ask you about prostate inflammation treatment, I want to ask you about the cause. I didn’t have all that much success with edging, since I still suffer from premature ejaculation. I gave up edging in summer 2005, because I found myself platoing at a certain level of “stamina” for more then six months, if I remember correctly. Recently I remembered reading here in a thread “Seminal Kung Fu”:
there are benefits to one’s sexual function all along the path to SKF mastery. There are risks too. Principle among them is the risk of prostate enlargement due to seminal retention. At the very least, manage your risk by monitoring of your prostate. If you have a healthy prostate, based on my experience, once one has activated one’s MO, the risk to one’s prostate disappears and is replaced with a benefit to one’s prostate. In the case of a man with a less than healthy prostate, I’m unable to say whether the risk of prostate enlargement (or maybe worse, I don’t know) attendant with pursuing SKF is an acceptable risk or not (in fact I can’t say for anyone, irrespective of prostate health, if its an acceptable risk). I can say that in accordance with traditional Taoist teachings, illnesses can be cured with SKF practice. My experience corroborates that. The slightly enlarged prostate that I experienced (likely due to seminal retention) prior to achieving SKF mastery was cured (to extremely healthy condition) once I did achieve mastery. The bitch is that it takes SKF mastery to effect healing of illnesses while the getting to mastery can cause illness. But life’s a big ball of risks isn’t it?
I didn’t hold the semen at the end of my edging sessions, I always ejaculated in the end, but I wonder - could edging be the cause of my illness? I edged last night, for example, and afterwards I felt pain in the area above my penis, in fact, I feel pain there right now. After edging, it was sharp pain, kind of like when a bee stings you, now, some 12 hours later, the pain is kind of dull.
If edging is so bad for my prostate, I really don’t know what to do. Because even when I use topical creams to reduce sensitivity for sex, I still go into edging when excitement increases.
Also, I need to tell you that, while edging, I have not only precum dropping out, I also somehow partially ejaculate, meaning I can eject some ejaculate fluid in a stream of fluid (without any ejaculation contractions). This happens if I stop stimulation at the peak, otherwise I would ejaculate fully.
Guys, what do you say to all this?
(Don’t waste time to advise me to go to an another urologist. Urologists in my country (and neighboring countries as well) simply plain suck. PLEASE trust me on this and don’t tell me to go seek another one. You will just piss me off. :) )
