Healthy prostate, prevention exercises

24/03/2020

The prostate is a small gland that weighs 10-20g and is chestnut-shaped. It lies beneath the bladder, and the urethra passes through it. It produces the prostatic fluid that is stored in the gland and extruded into the urethra during ejaculation. The prostate is only necessary for ejaculation and reproduction.

The prostate grows in volume over time, often forcing men to get up at night to urinate. There are simple solutions to reducing these night wakes.

  • Ejaculation causes contraction of the muscles surrounding the prostate, which promotes bladder emptying during urination. This exercise has one additional advantage: frequent ejaculation is thought to reduce the chance of prostate cancer.
  • You should also avoid sitting for several hours a day. This causes a constant pressure on the prostate. You should get up as often as possible. Even five minutes of movement will do you good and relax you.
  • Finally, a fairly warm bath lasting about 15 minutes at night allows the abdominal and pelvic floor muscles to relax while also reducing external pressure on the prostate.

Another little tip: Avoid too tight underwear.
