The prostate is located between the bladder and urethra, adjacent to the perineum. Long time driving will make the prostate gland compressed and airtight, causing a lot of metabolic waste accumulation, low blood circulation speed, easy to block the prostate gland tube. The prostatic fluid excretion is not smooth, can cause chronic prostatic hyperemia, eventually leading to prostatitis.

When prostatitis is associated with bacterial and pathogenic microorganism infection, its main symptoms are frequent urination, urgency, dysuria, chills, and high fever, sometimes accompanied by acute urinary retention and dysuria. Antibiotics are usually effective in killing bacteria in the acute stage.

Prostatitis can repeatedly occur, leading to chronic prostatitis, and easily cause neurasthenia, insomnia, dreaminess, and dizziness. In this case, herbal medicine's therapeutic effect will be better than antibiotics, such as Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill.

Cycling is a healthy and environmentally friendly sport, improving physical fitness and enhancing the physique, and grasping the degree. Long time riding can cause perineal numbness, resulting in compression of perineal blood vessels and nerves. Due to a long contraction and ischemia, it can cause various discomforts, such as local numbness or pain.

The bladder is the organ for storing urine. The primary function of the kidney is to produce urine. After urine flows into the bladder through the ureter, the bladder can expand automatically, and the bladder wall will stretch and become thinner. When the urine is filled to about 300 ~ 400 ml, the urine is discharged after receiving the brain signal. If you always hold your urine, the bacteria can retrograde into the prostate through the prostate tube, leading to prostate infection.

Therefore, men need to control sex, prevent prostate congestion, and give the prostate enough repair time.

4. Local cold

When the prostate is stimulated by cold, it can excite the sympathetic nerve, increase the pressure in the urethra, and affect the excretion of urine. Simultaneously, it can also stimulate the prostate tube's contraction, hinder the excretion of prostatic fluid, resulting in siltation, leading to prostatic congestion.
