    Thanks for your insight, are you still on flomax or was that just temporary to help combat the enlarged prostate?

    Well, so far so good. Im only pissing 4 or 5 times a day instead of 10 to 15. Stronger steam and he urgency is gone. Dont know if there is any sexual benefits yet.

    Oh okay, i am definitely thinking of getting another dr. appointment. Hopefully the next one will be more responsive to my requests.

    Also, I am wondering if anyone has seen any cases of the prostate actually shrinking/going back to normal after a long reboot? or is it permanently enlarged if that is the case? Once again everyone thanks for everything.

    some men have to give themselves permission to be with a lady again and it helps them with performance anxiety

    Just have to post/vent because this is getting extremely annoying/worrisome for me. It is extremely difficult to urinate and I sometimes feel like I’m sitting on a golf ball, have lots of pressure between anus and scrotum, but it’s strange that sensation comes and goes through out the day. I’ve also just come to realize I’m constipated so I’m definitely having issues in my pelvic floor right now. Through my research I’ve seen lots of accounts of physical pain with prostatis, but I have no pain just can’t urinate. I’m really hoping i haven’t done any serious damage to anything. I also find it strange that it has just now flared up after 120 days into NoFap, and sex with my wife Bout 6 days ago seems to have made it worse. I also have very little sensation in the penis, it’s like I’m right back in a flatline. who knows what’s going on, but Monday morning i will be making an appointment with a different urologist. I will keep everyone posted.

    Well just wanted to post an update, a few days ago, almost all of my symptoms have disappeared, no longer feel like I’m sitting on a golf ball, urinating has gotten a whole lot easier and is feeling more and more natural by the day. I made a doctors appointment last week but they could get into see me until next week. I have not cancelled the appointment as I plan to still get examined, still think my prostate could be having some issues. It’s seems that sex with my wife last time may have aggravated my prostate or something and caused it to inflame for some reason. At least that’s the only thing I can think of at this time. My mind is still getting better day by day and I’m starting to enjoy the little things that happen throughout the day, it’s teuly an amazing feeling. I’m also noticing my attention span is getting longer, this is happening very slowly but I do notice a different which has been great.
    I also have started eating pumpkin seeds as I have seen a few people mention could help the prostate. We’ll see if I notice any changes with them. Anyway this now makes day 128 since my last PM session an 10 since having sex. I now have the courage and the want to never go back to my old ways because I have come to realize just how much oh life I’ve been missing out on. Hope this can help someone.

    Things seemed to be clearing up a bit until about 4 or 5 days ago. I now have symptoms of epididymitis again, little lump above right teste and a dull ache in same teste. I still have dribble after urination, and sometimes a burning sensation. But I no longer feel like I’m sitting on a golf ball like I was. I had to push my next dr appointment back to March 2nd due to work. I’m so ready for all of this to be behind me, it is really affecting my life. How are your symptoms?



    As far as brain symptoms go, thisaddiction really messes with you. Some days I feel like a while confident new man and other I still feelworthless. But on the good days it’s amazing, and I’m pretty sure my wife is starting to see a different, she’sacting a little different around me now and she just seems happier in mypresence. The affection is still low but I know I have to earn her trust back and it’s going to take a while.

    Counter update:
    135 since PM
    18 since sex w/ wife

    I don't know if anyone is still following this thread or not but I need to update it with more current information. after my last post most of my prostate symptoms seemed to have cleared up, then one night I had a WD and once again the next few days my prostate started to act up again. This was about a week ago and I still feel like I'm sitting on a golfball and have mildly burning urination. I went to the doctor on the 2nd, was told that I was "reading the book for prostatitis symptoms" when I described my ailments. He did not want to put me on medication again citing that I was young, told me if the symptoms come back we might look at a script of antibiotics. I gave a urine sample and have not heard anything back on whether it tested positive or negative for anything. I find it strange that I have not had these problems during any point in my life up until I get to 100+ of nofap. I still have not PM'ed for the last 148 days and don't plan on it, but I keep reading how ejaculation regularly (not too much) can help clear up prostatitis. I am almost at my whits end with this, it is truly putting me in a depressive state. If anyone has been through this before or has any information that they could share, I could really use some insight.

  13. If you are worried about prostatitis, start doing ejaculating again during only sex with your wife. Sex is healthy, PM isn’t.

    1x/week with your wife should be good. Try that for a few weeks and see how you feel.

    So you didn't test your urine, semen and sample from penis for bacteria? It's really strange, because when I got some of simillar issues that was the first test from doctor. I got 2 different bacterias and I took antibiotics for 3 weeks. Now I'm clear from bacteria, but... Sympthoms are not gone for good! I dont have any bacteria, my prostate is good, ultra-sound OK... I still have sometimes pain in lower back, pelvic and pressure between anus and scrotum. I got x-ray of my lower back, and I have some issues there. In some cases this can make such problems. I will meet wth my doctor on monday and we will see.

    But in your case, when you feel burning while peeing, that might be some infection...

    Thanks for the reply, I have thought about this, but the last two times I have ejaculated once with my wife next with a wet dream were when these symptoms flared up the worst which I find very strange... any thoughts?


    I have a urine sample but have not heard from them on if it tested positive or negative for anything. How long did it take for you to hear back from them on your test?

    5-7 days is the time needed to test urine/semen/swab for the presence of bacteria

    Oh okay, thanks for he info. Tomorrow will be one week since my appointment so hopefully I will hear back from them soon. I’m really hoping they find some bacteria that way I at least know what in the world could be the problem.

    Hey drummer, i'm 23 and last year i went for a 90 days streak. Felt urine retention issues in the last few weeks of that streak and after i relapsed they were gone. (I didn't pay attention to what be the underlying problem)
    But i don't think they're gone for good. I was on a 9 days streak last week and felt urine retention and inability to pee. I relapsed again and the symptoms seems to be gone for now.

    From my experience, I'd recommend that you don't relapse as the problem won't go away. it might if you don't. (Would love to know about it).

    My CBC and Urine test came normal. Ultrasound is pending, would go sometime around this week.
    I have started cranberry, multivitamins. can you guide me any further? PS: i don't plan to do PMO again and try to solve this issue.

    Hey Guy,

    Curious, did you have any other symptoms? Such as burning/painful urination, any feeling of pressure behind the scrotum? Hope all is well man

    PS I also just realized I never mentioned my age in this thread. I am 28 if that helps give anyone some context.
