Frequent Ejaculation Linked to Reduced Risk of Low-Risk Prostate Cancer

Men who ejaculate at least 21 times each month appear to be at decreased risk for low-risk prostate cancer, according to research presented in May at the annual meeting of the American Urological Association. 

Researchers looked at data from 31,925 men who participated in the Health Professionals Follow-up Study. The project began in 1992. The men's mean age was 59 years.

Men reported their ejaculation frequency in during their twenties and forties as well as during the previous year. 

During a follow-up period of 437,490 person-years, 3,839 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer.  Three hundred eighty-four died from it. 

The researchers found that men who ejaculated at least 21 times a month had a 20% reduced risk for prostate cancer when compared to those who ejaculated four to seven times each month. 

The results applied only to low-risk, localized forms of prostate cancer. High-risk, advanced, and lethal forms were not affected. It was unclear why this was the case.
