Prostate health is important, especially as men get older.


It’s not just a men’s issue—understanding it together can help couples stay healthy and support each other.

What is the Prostate?

The prostate is a small gland that helps produce seminal fluid. As men age, it can get bigger and cause problems.


Common Prostate Issues

  • BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia): An enlarged prostate causing frequent or difficult urination.

  • Prostate Cancer: A common cancer in men, often treatable if found early.


Signs to Watch For

  • Frequent urination, especially at night

  • Trouble starting or stopping urination

  • Weak or interrupted urine flow

  • Pain in the pelvic area

  • Blood in urine or semen


Tips for Prostate Health

  1. Eat Healthy: Lots of fruits, veggies, and whole grains. Foods like tomatoes and berries are great.

  2. Exercise Regularly: Staying active helps maintain a healthy weight.

  3. Regular Check-ups: Men over 50 should get regular prostate screenings.

  4. Drink Water: Stay hydrated to help your urinary system.

  5. Limit Alcohol and Caffeine: They can irritate the bladder.


Supporting Each Other

  • Talk Openly: Share concerns and symptoms early.

  • Be There: Go to doctor appointments together and support each other’s healthy choices.

  • Learn Together: Stay informed about prostate health and treatments.


Conclusion

Understanding prostate health helps couples stay strong and healthy together.
