Can Anal Intercourse Harm an Enlarged Prostate?
Dear Dr. Motoloa,** Can anal intercourse harm an enlarged prostate?**
The physical act of anal intercourse should not theoretically have any harm on the prostate. The act of anal intercourse can cause some minor trauma to the prostate that could result in hematospermia (blood in the semen). However this is usually self limited and should be of no concern.
