So yesterday I did more research on BPH as this is now really beginning to effect my sleep quality with frequent interruptions due to night time visits to the bathroom and I saw an interesting finding that men who frequently ejaculated actually had a statistically significant lower chance of developing prostate cancer. So then I began thinking about the rise of my prostate problems.
Up until November of 2012, I used to ejaculate at least 3 times a week. But since November of 2012 I have given up PMO (porn, masturbation, orgasm) and now ejaculate maybe 3 times a month when I have sex with the wife. In January 2014 I developed an acute Prostatitis and have never fully gone back to normal from that. Since Spring of 2016 my BPH has been worsening and I started noticing that I would now have to wake up at least twice a night to urinate. The LPN put me on Urotraxal which made me dizzy so I stopped. I then was put on low doses of Cialis which has helped some but I'm still waking up too frequently at night. At the beginning of this month I had another bout of Prostatitis although this episode was much milder than the one in 2014.
This week because of the way things have gone on the romance side I had sex with orgasm on Friday night and I let myself O again with sex on Monday morning. I wasn't noticing the horrible brain fog and listlessness which I experienced in the past with frequent ejaculation so last night we had sex again and I ejaculated again.
Lo and behold, for the first time in maybe 9 months, I only woke up once to urinate and slept like a baby!! And when I woke up my urge to urinate was barely there!!
I realize this was only a single episode and maybe its a fluke, but it is possible that my intentional retention of semen by resisting the urges and not allowing myself to ejaculate could be contributing to my BPH.
I am going to continue to experiment and monitor this.
BTW- again today post orgasm I feel quite good!
