The prostate is a truly sensitive part of the male body. You might have known that not making enough use of it can cause bacteria and infections to build up and cause health problems. What you might not have known, is that overusing it can be equally bad for you, often leading to prostate exhaustion.
One of the prostate’s main functions is to assist men in ejaculation. A lot of the throbbing or spasming feeling you will experience during ejaculation comes from the tensing and releasing motion of the prostate itself, as it pushes fluids towards the outside of your body. By partaking in excessive ejaculations, you can overwork the prostate.
An exhausted prostate is characterized by a wearing away of the nerves in the area. When this happens, the brain will attempt to compensate by releasing a cocktail of chemicals into your bloodstream. This tends to aggravate the problem further, as it weakens the nervous system, making it difficult for your body to heal the damage.
Prostate exhaustion can prove very difficult for you or even doctors to diagnose. Many of the symptoms will be the same or similar to what you might experience if you suffer from other prostatic diseases or disorders. There are some symptoms you can look out for though including:
- pain and cramps in the pelvic area
- emotional instability
- fuzzy vision or eye floaters
- painful ejaculation
- premature ejaculation
- weak erections
- memory loss
- muscle weakness
- hair loss
- headaches and migraines
- lowered sex drive
- insomnia or difficulty sleeping
Some of those symptoms might surprise you. The brain itself plays a large role in prostate exhaustion and recovery. As long as you continue to excessively ejaculate it is unlikely for the chemical balance of your body to recover, so these symptoms could persist long term, and potentially get stronger or worse.
If you suffer from prostate exhaustion regularly or for a long period of time, it can lead to inflammation, swelling, and even some of the diseases caused by not making enough use of your prostate. It really is all about striking the right kind of balance between using it enough, but not too much.
If you haven’t got the balance quite right though, don’t worry. Just as prostate massage can help with problems from under using your prostate, it can equally help with exhaustion. The main benefit is in a reduction to any swelling and inflammation by freeing up some of the fluids produced by the gland, letting your body have some time to restock it’s natural chemicals and get your prostate back to normal.
