Hi @dannycole - pretty sure it can have some impact. Did your doctor about sustaining from sex like 24 hours before the test?
I would let your doctor know and see what he or she says.

@dannycole Yes it can have a significant effect. My doctor recommends no sex for 48 hours.
How high was you PSA?

The only treatment seems to be male castration. If they castrate us they are satisfied. There are no other treatments they offer but to turn us over to their females to abuse us as they wish.
