The prostate is a unique organ of men. Its function is essential. It is closely related to men's ejaculation and urination, but many people ignore it. If the prostate does not pay attention to maintenance and health care, it will bring many direct health effects to men, the most common of which is prostatitis.

There are many causes of prostatitis, and a common habit is considered to be an essential cause of prostatitis, which is to hold urine. Holding urine means that when you want to urinate and feel very strong, you should forcefully hold back the urine and wait for a period to discharge. Or ultimately hold back and release it next time you urinate.

Some people hold their urine occasionally because of emergencies. Still, some people keep their urine habitually, for example, they don't want to be disturbed for a long working time, they have trouble going to the toilet, etc., which makes some people hold their urine very common.

So why can men get prostatitis due to holding urine?

Holding urine does a lot of harm to people, such as increasing bladder pressure, affecting urinal metabolism in the kidney, and so on. The impact on the prostate is concentrated in two aspects.

1. The urine itself has the function of eliminating bacteria. Regular urination can wash away the bacteria in the urethra. But the pressure in the bladder will be higher and higher when the sphincter of the urethra can not control the urine. So, some urine will enter the urethra. The high pressure of urethra will make the urine flow into the prostate, stimulate the inflammation of the prostate, and form prostatitis.

2. During the process of holding urine, the prostate will be swollen and congested for a long time, to prevent the occurrence of urination. In this case, it will cause non-bacterial inflammation of the prostate, lead to various obstacles in human urine excretion, such as unclean excretion, pain, frequency of urination, and so on.

As far as prostatitis is concerned, it can be divided into a bacterial infection and non-bacterial infection. The process of holding urine can cause these two situations. In other words, the process of holding urine is the direct cause of all prostate problems or aggravating factors.

To keep prostate health, all men usually must not have the habit of holding urine. Urine must be emptied in time, which is beneficial to the reproductive system and urinary system, otherwise may cause their own unwilling to bear the consequences.

Once suffering from prostatitis, patients must actively treat it. For acute prostatitis, people can usually take antibiotics for treatment. And people may need the treatment for 4 to 6 weeks or longer. The type of antibiotic prescribed will depend on the bacteria that are causing the infection. A doctor may also prescribe medication designed to alleviate symptoms of acute prostatitis.

As for chronic prostatitis, herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill can be selected for treatment with the functions of clearing heat and detoxification, activating blood circulation and removing blood stasis, promoting diuresis and relieving stranguria.
