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. Epididymitis and masturbation rawherbivore. I recently was diagnosed with severe epididymitis. I was in South America and took anti-biotics for it. It has been over a month and the swelling and pain is almost gone. I haven't had sex or masturbated since this began, and I'm worried that it will either hurt or damage something.
