Dear Dr.
I have some problem with my urinary system.My urologist said its prostate congestion with frequent masterbation. i stopped masturbation during 15 days of medicine period and felt good. But now after long time when i had sex the symptoms are back again.,that include :-
1) Frequent urination
2) not able to empty my bladder
3) heaviness in lower abdomen

There is no pain or any burning during urination and ejaculation.

My medicines was uritab and antibiotics
Please advice.

Dear Emil, When I am asked a question, I can generally provide an answer.  However, when I am contacted by patients who are under the care of a Urologist, and are being treated (e.g.. antibiotics) I am really unable to better advise you than the Doctor who you are seeing.  That doctor gets to talk to you, examine you, evaluate your urine, check to see how well you truly empty your bladder (that can be done with an ultrasound) etc.  You are on antibiotics and yet I do not even know if your urine is infected or not.  I do not have those advantages.  I would advise you followup with your Urologist or get a second opinion as I really can not give you a diagnosis and treatment recommendation based on just an email.  Best of luck.
