How can man protect and support his epididymis?
In most cases, an epididymitis runs smoothly and without permanent damage. In order to avoid spread of the inflammation on the testicles or a chronification, affected persons should consult a doctor immediately at the first occurrence of complaints and follow the prescribed therapy consistently. You should also take "harmless" urinary tract infections seriously and always cure them well so that they do not spread to the epididymides.
By taking simple precautions during sexual intercourse - wearing condoms - you can avoid sexually transmitted infections that can cause epididymitis. Since strong mechanical influences also favor epididymitis, you should wear a jockstrap while practicing "high-risk sports" such as ice hockey.
