Is intercourse harmful during prostate infection?

My husband has had on going problems with his prostate. He will not see a doctor because of financial reasons. It is affecting our sex life. We NEVER have sex. We both are 42 , is this normal that a prostate infection can have that much to do with him not wanting to have sex with me?

Hello,

No, it's not harmful to have sex with prostrate infection however it is actually good have sex with prostrate infection as it causes drainage from prostrate ducts and helps in clearing the infection.
