Is it Okay to not ejaculate on a regular basis?
An_239864 posted:
The reason i'm asking is because since 2002 I have suffered from an injury to my penis, (happened during sexual intercourse) and left me somewhat disfigured and sexually dysfunctual. As time went by i found it much easier to just abstain from sexual intercoarse, (mostly due to pain) and also masterbation. Gradually i've gotten to the point to where i can go several months at a time without ejaculating. The only thing i notice is somtimes when i go to urinate, some semen comes out in a few drops before i can urinate. So i'm wondering if i should just release on a certain schedule, or if i can just go without it? The only problem i have when i masterbate besides the pain is my testosterone goes up and gives me painful erections and i feel a heightened sense of wanting to have intercoarse or masterbate.

You need to see a urologist, ideally an ED specialist as chances are all this can be fixed. Yes, you have scar from the penile fracture and scarring, but that can be corrected. From what you say I suggest you do some research and find a world-class top-tier expert and get an opinion.And to answer your question, going without ejaculating for some time shouldn't be a problem. The excess prostate fluid coming out is normal.

A while back I read that those who ejaculate regularly had lower blood pressure and fewer strokes if so then would it not be a problem to not do so or has that changed?

From what I understand, even if you were to never have sex and never masturbate, your body would still ejaculate either through night emissions or through urination. This seems to put the lie to the theory that frequent ejaculation is essential to prostate health. The body takes care of itself in this regard.
Sheldon Marks, MD replied to Gonatural2's response:
In general, though I cannot quote any specific article it is usually healthier to use what we have rather than not. I do know that sexual activity does improve overall well-being and health. It inly makes sense.
