I had it many years ago & was told to abstain from sexual activity until things improved. I did so & things did get better after a cpl weeks or so, then I gradually resumed activity, like once a week or so, and once things seemed back to normal I resumed regular activity...

Hey BonzoDog I have a question. I took 10 day levofloxacin then 5 days naproxen. Back then my epididymitis didn’t go away so I took 14 days cyprofloxacin with 10 days naproxen. Now I’m starting to feel better but 2 days ago I got a white discharge at the end of my urination and earlier I got a clear white discharge. Should I go back to antibiotic I am afraid I had too much. Or having those discharge is part of getting better?
Hmmm... that’s hard to say. Normally I wouldn’t think any discharge would be a good thing. If this continues, see if the Dr can get a sample of this discharge & analyze it. It’s too difficult to tell what it might be without running some tests...

I had this issue and i masterbated once a day and it actually helped a lot got rid of pain and swelling went down a bit too.   I cant remember everything i was only 12 or 13 but it went away quite quickly for me maybe a week to 10 days

i had been battling epididymitis for two months.  It was acute and almost certainly bacteria related initially.  I masterbated very occasionally during initial weeks on better days and had no noticeable positive or negative effects. Had not mastrbated in a month and around day 60 decided to after a very good week of recovery. My experience was that it caused many of my symptoms to come back after they had been very minimal for almost a week.

This is just my experience.  Maybe my symptoms would have been back anyways and it was just the timing.  I had  read both sides of the case which is why I made a decision to try.  I guess both because it may be helpful and to gauge my recovery.  And just generally anxious to feel recovered.  

The night following, hours later, was particularly bad.  And oddly enough, not so much in the testicle/epididymis, but throughout the lower abdomen.  It has been 5 days since and none have been very good.  This is disheartening considering the days leading up to that decision were particularly good.

It makes me wonder though, if the initial pain following the recent master action  (really more horrible nauseating discomfort) was in my abdomen then perhaps it was residual bacteria being released.  And even though I am still suffering more now as a result it will somehow accelerate my recovery.  

That said, I am still more convinced that the infection has run its course for the most part and I am recovering more (or completely) from the damage it did.  I, especially now, feel like I am prolonging the recovery of my epididymis by masterbating at all.  I will not be masterbating until I am completely recovered unless someone can convince me otherwise from experience or research.  

Thanks all for sharing.

It's been years so hopefully it's gone now, but try not masturbating a lot, just once a week mice scrotum, multiple professional websites said to ice the scrotum, if it starts to hurt in any way, stop obviously

Hello,
You can masturbate but overmasturbation should be avoided. Continue taking the antibiotics but if the symptoms persist then other causes need to be evaluated. These include antibiotics and ant-inflammatory agents; phytotherapy, anxiolytics, narcotic analgesics, acupuncture and injection therapy.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.

I haven't had pain in my left testicle for two weeks but it is still swollen is it okay to masterbate?

I'm not a physician.   When I suffered from epididymitis, my urologists did say that I can continue with masturbation.    I masturbated once every week to clear the load.   Some doctors say it is good in one way, saying the epididymis is a thin coiled tube and ejaculation prevents any blockage due to scars caused by epididimitis.     Check with your doctor, he may say once in a week is reasonable, but don't too much and hurt yourself.

The recovery time for epdidiymitis is very slow.  It depends on how well your body is responding to the antibiotics.   For some people it will heal in weeks to months to years..
My healing time is 6 months..
