In acute prostate inflammations or in cases of terminal prostate cancer, total abstinence from sexual relations is recommended because constant compression of the prostate could aggravate the patient's clinical condition.
In any case, the urologist will be in charge of determining if there is any risk of increasing the inflammation of the gland with sexual relations.
Yes, it could be possible. Although rare and isolated, cases of prostatitis and benign prostatic hyperplasia can occur in boys even before they have reached sexual maturity.
These cases usually have a high genetic component. The clinical management of the diseases is the same as in adult men.
The answer is yes, although in low proportion. Medicines to treat enlarged prostate are drugs that minimise the number of androgen receptors, partially desensitising the gland and therefore causing less hyperplasia. It creates more problems, for example, with regard to ejaculation. Something we deal with in other sections of our website such as retrograde ejaculation and delayed ejaculation.
The decrease in androgen receptors (mainly for testosterone) can occur not only in the prostate but in other body tissues, especially the central nervous system, lowering the body's response to this hormone and thus, the effects it produces. Sexual desire may be diminished, as well as the erectile response of the penis and ejaculation.
It should be noted that these drugs do not interact negatively with retardant medications (such as sildenafil, tadalafil or vardenafil), so they may be used to treat erection problems while treating the prostate.
