Is Abstinence Necessary for Epididymitis?
Epididymitis is a common male disease. It is mainly caused by bacteria and viruses entering the genitals. Many men will have symptoms of scrotal swelling after suffering from this disease. Do you need to abstain if you have epididymitis? It's a common question, but many men haven't had a clear understanding of it. In response to this problem, let's look at it in detail.

Does epididymitis affect sex?
Acute epididymitis has a rapid onset and severe pain, temporarily inhibiting the patient's sexual function, but it will resume after recovery. Chronic epididymitis has almost no effect on sexual function. But it will become hard because the epididymis is stimulated by inflammation for a long time. When you reach the ejaculation climax during sex, the epididymis and vas deferens will contract, and pain will occur. Sometimes pain occurs during sexual life. It will continue for a while. Therefore, epididymitis has an impact on the quality of sexual life.
Is abstinence necessary for epididymitis?
Are patients with epididymitis allowed to have sex? Do not have sex if you have acute epididymitis. Because the epididymis is in an inflammatory state with congestion and edema, sexual life will aggravate the swelling of the epididymis, which is not conducive to the subsidence of inflammation. 
You can have sex after your recover from acute epididymitis. If you have chronic epididymitis, sex is allowed, but the frequency should be controlled. Chronic epididymitis is easy to recur because the bacteria in the slender and tortuous epididymal duct are not easy to be eliminated. 
If there is too much sexual intercourse, it is easy to make the bacteria infect your epididymis again. However, excessive abstinence will cause sperm stasis in the epididymis, leading to the congestion of epididymis. So patients with chronic epididymitis should maintain a moderate sex life.
In summary, whether or not to have a sexual life for patients with epididymitis must be determined according to the specific condition. Patients with acute epididymitis cannot have sexual life, and patients with chronic epididymitis can have a moderate sexual life. 
However, prompt treatment is required, whether it is acute or chronic. If epididymitis is not treated in time, it can cause great harm, such as testicular atrophy, malignant transformation, and even infertility.

How do you treat these two types of epididymitis? Let's take a look at it one by one.
The treatment of acute epididymitis is mainly based on antibacterial drugs. Drugs that are sensitive to bacteria are selected. Usually, after 1 to 2 weeks of intravenous administration, oral antibiotics are given for 2 to 4 weeks to prevent acute inflammation turns into chronic inflammation. If antibiotic treatment is ineffective and testicular ischemia is suspected, the epididymal incision should be performed to decompress the epididymis. And men also rest in bed for most of their day.
For the treatment of chronic epididymitis, herbal medicine has a significant effect. Chinese Traditional Medicine(TCM) believes that epididymitis is mostly caused by the accumulation of damp-heat in the body. Therefore, the treatment is based on clearing heat and detoxifying, promoting blood circulation, and removing blood stasis. 
The herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill is made from herbs with the above functions. It can effectively kill various pathogens, including bacteria, viruses, mycoplasma, and chlamydia. In addition to the treatment of chronic epididymitis, it can also help patients improve the general condition of their reproductive system and achieve the effect of eliminating the disease while nourishing the body.
