What to Do When Prostatitis Worsens After Exercise?

Prostatitis is one of the common diseases in adult males, which brings many inconveniences to patients' lives. As a beneficial way of health, exercise may, in some cases, worsen prostatitis.


This not only affects patients' physical health but may also negatively impact their psychological state, reducing their quality of life. In addition, it may lead to fear and misunderstanding of exercise among patients, thereby affecting their recovery process.

So what should I do if my condition worsens after exercising?

Firstly, understand some possible reasons for the worsening of the condition after exercise:

1. Excessive exercise intensity: Excessive exercise may lead to physical fatigue, resulting in poor blood circulation in the prostate area and exacerbating inflammation.

2. Improper exercise methods: Some intense exercises, such as cycling and horseback riding, can directly compress and stimulate the prostate, leading to worsening inflammation.

3. Failure to clean promptly after exercise: Sweat more after exercise. If the perineum is not cleaned promptly, bacteria can breed, cause infections, and further aggravate prostatitis.

4. The original condition has not been effectively controlled: If prostatitis itself is not well treated and the inflammation is in an active phase, exercising at this time may worsen the condition.

Based on the above reasons, the following measures can be taken:

1. Active treatment

If the symptoms of prostatitis worsen after exercise, seek medical attention promptly and follow the doctor's treatment plan for treatment.

Doctors prescribe corresponding medications based on the patient's condition, such as antibiotics, anti-inflammatory drugs, painkillers, and Traditional Chinese Medicine, such as Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill. Patients should take their medication on time and not increase or decrease the dosage independently.

Physical therapy methods such as prostate massage and hot compress can promote local blood circulation in the prostate and alleviate inflammation symptoms.

2. Adjusting exercise habits

Engaging in appropriate warm-up exercises can increase body temperature, increase muscle flexibility, and reduce sports injuries. Choose comfortable sportswear and shoes, and avoid exercising in high-temperature, cold, or humid environments.

Avoid exercises that can directly compress the prostate, such as cycling or horseback riding. Instead, choose aerobic exercise, such as swimming, jogging, and walking.

According to one's physical condition, arrange exercise intensity and time reasonably to avoid excessive fatigue. Generally speaking, it is advisable to exercise 3-5 times a week for 30-60 minutes each time.

Rest promptly after exercise to allow the body to recover fully. You can engage in relaxing activities such as deep breathing and stretching exercises.

3. Improving Lifestyle Habits

Eat more vegetables and fruits, eat less spicy and stimulating foods, and quit smoking and drinking. Avoiding staying late and maintaining sufficient sleep can help improve the body's immune system and promote inflammation recovery.

Sitting for a long time can lead to poor local blood circulation in the prostate, and holding urine for a long time can cause urine reflux, which can easily cause infections and worsen prostatitis.

Regular prostate examinations, such as digital rectal examination, prostate fluid examination, ultrasound, etc., can promptly detect abnormal conditions of the prostate and take corresponding treatment measures.

Maintain an optimistic attitude and avoid the influence of negative emotions such as anxiety and depression. Participating in social activities, listening to music, reading, and other means can relieve psychological stress and improve your quality of life. These are also beneficial for the recovery of prostatitis.

In short, exercise is a double-edged sword for patients with prostatitis. The correct exercise method can promote the recovery of the condition, while improper exercise may worsen the condition.

Therefore, patients with prostatitis should pay attention to selecting suitable exercise items and intensity during exercise while also adjusting personal hygiene and lifestyle habits. If prostatitis worsens after exercise, seek medical attention promptly and take corresponding treatment measures.
