A prostate massage is a great way to maintain a healthy prostate or to treat a swollen, painful prostate gland. If you suffer from prostatitis, then you could use a special prostate massage technique to reduce the pain quickly. You must massage your prostate daily or every two days to achieve best results.
During the massage you simply put your finger into your rectum and put gentle pressure on your prostate to drain the stored fluid which is causing your problems. It sounds easy but is not. In fact, chances are that your fingers are too short or that you are not that flexible anymore to do the massage yourself.
In this case you can use a special prostate massager. You put it on a chair, sit on it and use your own body weight to perform the massage.
Do not get discouraged by the imagination of a prostate massage. It is very useful, healthy and brings immediate relief when done correctly. It is not abnormal to do it and when you ask your doctor, he will advise you to do it frequently.
Prostatitis is usually treated with medication but drugs are not effective when the access is clogged. In this case the drugs can not reach the affected area. This is where the prostate massage comes into play. If done correctly, the massage can drain the fluid which is stuck in your gland.
The procedure may sound odd and painful but it is not. Many report that the massage itself can be quite pleasurable. The chances are low that you can hurt yourself. Cut your finger nails and massage with gentle pressure and it will not do any harm. When your prostate is highly infected then you should not do a massage as it can spread the bacteria.
It also helps to take a high dosage of vitamin C a day before you do the massage, about 1000 mg. This will make your urine more acid and help to neutralize the fluid. You should always urinate after the massage to wash out the fluid. Drink one or two glasses of water 30-60 minutes before you do the massage.
Milking the prostate that way does not any harm to your prostate. It may burn a little when the fluid leaks but it goes away quickly and is not really painful.
When you do the massage correctly, you should be able to feel the fluid moving. The burning sensation is also a sign that the fluid is on the way and the massage works. With more practise you will get better results. You will get results of a reduced pain within a few minutes.
Use disposable gloves for your massage. You can get them in every pharmacy. There is no special preparation needed but an ejaculation before you do the massage is helpful.
After two or three massages you should experience a clear improvement already. Many report that they could reduce the size of their prostate successfully over time.
