Prostate massager: types, rules of use and list of the best brands.

As part of the complex treatment of inflammatory diseases of the prostate, special devices are often used - urological prostate massagers. They have a positive effect on the organ, prevent exacerbation of chronic prostatitis and increase potency. The main advantage of these devices is the ability to use them independently at home. There are different types of devices and their use is limited by certain contraindications.

What is a prostate massager and why is it necessary?

A urological prostate massager is a physiotherapeutic device used for local massage of the prostate gland for therapeutic purposes. The product is made of special materials for medical use and has an elongated shape. It is used at home and is a good alternative to digital prostate massage, which is performed by a urologist in a clinic.

Prostate massage at home does not reduce the effectiveness of this procedure. On the contrary, performing the manipulation at home helps relax the patient, eliminating the feeling of stiffness and discomfort.

The therapeutic effect is achieved through direct stimulation of the diseased organ and is manifested:

  • normalization of the outflow of prostate secretions at the time of ejaculation;
  • eliminate congestion in the pelvic organs;
  • clean the prostate ducts;
  • improve the penetration of drugs deep into the gland;
  • increased blood circulation and normalization of metabolism;
  • restoration of damaged tissues;
  • disappearance of tissue swelling;
  • reduce inflammation;
  • increased tone of the prostate gland;
  • removal of pus from the organ during purulent inflammation;
  • Eliminating signs of erectile dysfunction.

Indications and contraindications.

The prostate massage device should be used only on the recommendation of the treating physician.

The indications for the procedure are:

  1. Chronic prostatitis is in remission.
  2. Congestive prostatitis is a non-infectious inflammation due to congestion in the pelvis.
  3. Erectile dysfunction, which is manifested by premature ejaculation, loss of sensation during orgasm and decreased potency.
  4. Impaired reproductive capacity, associated with poor sperm motility, increased sperm viscosity and other factors.
  5. The initial stage of BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia).

The use of prostate stimulants is prohibited in the following cases:

  1. Acute prostatitis or exacerbation of chronic prostatitis. In this case, prostate massage can cause injury to the organ and the spread of the inflammatory process. Even one procedure can cause complications in the form of: vesiculitis - inflammation of the seminal vesicles; epidimitis orchitis: inflammation of the testicle and its appendages; purulent prostatitis.
  2. Gland tumor.In case of oncology, any physiotherapy procedure is contraindicated.Otherwise, nutrition improves and the growth of tumor cells increases, which can lead to the spread of the malignant process to neighboring tissues and organs.
  3. Exacerbation of hemorrhoids. Physical impact on the rectum can cause bleeding from varicose veins.
  4. Anal fissure. The impact of the device on a crack can cause an increase in its size, increased pain and bleeding.
  5. Stones (calcifications) in the prostate gland. Performing a massage will inevitably cause injury to the tissue of the organs, which is dangerous for the development of purulent calculous prostatitis.
  6. Prostatic tuberculosis. In this case, the massage procedure will provoke the spread of the infectious process.
  7. Diarrhea (stool disorder). Massage will increase the amount of urge to defecate due to the irritating effect of the device on the rectum.
  8. Urogenital herpes.
  9. Genital condylomas of the anus.

In case of BPH, prostate massage is performed with extreme caution. This is due to the ability of some forms of the disease to degenerate into a malignant tumor during physiotherapy treatment. Before using the massager, it is advisable to donate blood to detect PSA (prostate-specific antigen), the normal value of which is 0 to 4 ng/ml. The marginal and high figures of this indicator are grounds for categorical rejection of the procedures.

Main types

There are many different brands and shapes of prostate massage devices, but they all fall into two groups:

  1. Internal or invasive: affects the prostate gland by inserting into the rectum.
  2. External or non-invasive: affects the prostate through the perineal area.

The most effective devices are considered to be invasive massagers, which affect the affected organ in various ways:

  1. Thermal. Through a local increase in temperature, blood circulation in the prostate improves. This helps eliminate congestion in the organ, reduce swelling and relieve pain.
  2. vibrating. Vibration helps increase gland tissue tone and free blocked ducts of contents, resulting in decreased inflammation.
  3. Magnetic. Provides restoration of damaged prostate tissue, eliminates pain and pain when urinating, dilutes prostate secretions and reduces their volume.

Another positive quality of invasive devices is the increase in power and the pleasurable sensation that men obtain from the procedure.

Invasive prostate stimulators include electrical massagers. The principle of operation of such devices is to influence the bushing using special electrodes. The doctor adjusts the current intensity during the procedure based on the patient's feelings. The only thing a man feels is a slight discomfort in the pelvic area. The massage can be done in two ways:

  1. One of the electrodes is inserted into the patient's urethra and the second is fixed in the tailbone area.
  2. One electrode is placed in the pubic area and the second is inserted into the rectum.

Non-invasive devices are less effective than direct massagers. Most often they are used for prophylactic purposes. With its help, a small amount of stagnant liquid is removed. The principle of operation of such devices is to activate the gland by stimulating the pubococcygeus muscle.

best models

The simplest models of manual invasive massagers work like a vibrator, that is, they are equipped only with a vibration function. The most expensive devices combine several methods of influence: magnetic, thermal and vibration.

The best non-invasive prostate massager is a device that has a gentle massaging effect on the pubococcygeus muscle, thus activating the prostate gland and relieving its congestion.

Recommendations for use

Prostate massage with invasive massagers has certain rules:

  • Colon cleansing before the procedure. If you have constipation, you can seek help with laxatives or microenemas.
  • Hygiene of the anus and genitals to prevent the entry of pathogenic microflora into the mucous membranes.
  • Bladder filling. One hour before prostate stimulation, it is necessary to drink between 0. 5 and 1 liter of water. Massage with a full bladder is more effective.
  • Use a condom (to protect the device) and lubricant (to facilitate insertion of the device into the rectum). The lubricant should be water-based, as silicone or an oily solution can damage the integrity of the condom and damage the massager. In addition, these lubricants often cause allergies.
  • Comfortable body position. The best position for prostate massage is lying on your left side, with your legs bent at the knees and pressed against your stomach. This provides comfort during the procedure and facilitates comfortable insertion of the tip.
  • Insert the device to a depth of about five centimeters.
  • The first procedure lasts no more than five minutes. Subsequently - up to eight minutes.
  • Device processing. After each procedure, it is necessary to clean the device with a disinfectant solution or alcohol.
  • Bladder emptying. If ejaculation does not occur during the massage, you should urinate immediately after the procedure. Prostatic secretions and pathogenic microorganisms are excreted along with urine.

Non-invasive devices are easy to use and do not require any preparation for handling. It is enough to correctly place the device in the perineal area and wait until the procedure is finished.

During treatment, sexual life should not be abandoned if there is no discomfort or pain. Regular ejaculation improves prostate drainage.

In married couples, the wife can help her husband perform a prostate massage. This will not only be more convenient for a man, but will also diversify his sexual life.

How to choose?

For ease of use and achieving maximum therapeutic effect, it is necessary to take into account some rules for choosing a device.

Criterion Selection rule
Aim Special urological prostate massagers are very effective, they are not "toys" bought in a sex shop
Multifunctionality It is better to give preference to devices that have a complex (thermal, vibratory and magnetic) effect on the gland.
Maker The best producing countries for prostate massagers are France, Germany and the United States. Chinese products are of low quality and do not meet medical standards.
Material High-quality models are made of hypoallergenic materials such as medical plastic, latex, silicone and cyberskin.
Shape The product must have an anatomical shape.
Diameter The most convenient are thin devices with a diameter of about two centimeters.
Operating modes It is better if the device is equipped with several operating modes.

If you are having difficulty making a decision about choosing a device, you can seek help from a doctor. He will tell you which massager is needed, taking into account the state of health and individual characteristics of the patient.

Most representatives of the male population, due to their natural shyness, try to avoid medical prostate massage. For your convenience, special devices have been developed for home use, which can be purchased at a pharmacy or ordered in an online store.
