Post Performing prostate massage while on antibiotics?
I had a new test done and it turned out that my sperm was positive for ureaplasma. After all these years, this seems to be the first light in the tunnel. Currently I am taking antibiotics against it for 3 weeks.

Yes I know, antibiotics long term are said to not work. But at least, now I have an enemy that has a "name and a face".

I am 12 days in and it hasn't helped me yet. That does not discourage me, though, I expected this after this long time.

Yet there is this saying on the internet that you should do prostate massage while on antibiotics to help the area heal quicker. Is there something to it and if so, how to perform it properly?

So, i have read ureaplasma is common in men that are healthy and not considered an issue. But i also hav read the opposite and why test for it if its not an issue. Possibly old info about it not being a cause?
I had or have mycoplasma..waiting on retest to see if it was cleared out by drugs..although symptoms remain.
Did they culture or dna test for it??

They dna-tested for it, said it was positive and my urologist recommended said treatment. Interestingly it also said that I have no HSV1 or 2.

Ureaplasma is an opportunistic bacteria that can cause infection.

Some doctors believe that abx and prostate massage are good combination to effectively treat bacterial prostatitis since prostate massage can unblock and drain the prostate by expelling it through the expressed prostatic fluid and promotes blood circulation making it for abx to penetrate the prostate. At least that's what my doc believes who also happens to treat Freakinfrustrated ;-) You need to find a doctor who can do it for you at least 2x a week. It has to be at trained doctor, not something that you can do it at home on your own coz it might worsen your symptoms.

There is no doctor here that performs it. Therefore I will do it myself. Some say, it is pressing against the prostate, others, that you are effectively rubbing the tissue around it and removing triggerpoints.

I hope you can do it right. This treatment is called antibiotics and drainage which was popularized by Dr Feliciano in the Philippines. If you have a book headache in the pelvis there are some illustration there that shows you the trigger points. Good luck and update us if it is effective.

No, because I don't know. I had my urologist do the test after he recommended it. I presume it is the polymerase chain reaction to increase the amount of dna for a dna detector to test for certain set of chromosomes that are typical for pathogens.
That explains, why even viruses are part of this. Creepy when you think about it, viruses can modify your semen.
