Who is at risk?

At risk are men who lead unhealthy lifestyles: inactivity, excess weight, sedentary lifestyle. The disease is caused by the fact that in men with an unhealthy lifestyle the blood circulation (circulation) in the pelvic area is disturbed. Then blood stagnates in the reproductive system, leading to the development of prostatitis. During the development of prostatitis, the prostate gland also increases, therefore, the level of urine increases, which delays in the body and poisons the health of men.

Types of disease

The types of chronic prostatitis are: bacterial and non-bacterial.

Bacterial prostatitis (acute)

This is a type of disease whose main causative agent is a bacterial infection. The onset of the disease and its symptoms always occur suddenly. This type of disease is very serious and requires a mandatory visit to the doctor. In some cases the patient is offered hospitalization. Most often, this type of disease affects middle-aged and young men.

Bacterial prostatitis (chronic)

This type of disease develops due to bacterial microorganisms that do not behave as hostilely as the acute form of the disease. Most often, there are no specific symptoms of the disease, or the symptoms appear very slowly and for a long time.

Causes of chronic prostatitis

The main causes of the disease are bacteria that enter the prostate gland with urine (urinary tract). Bacteria cause both chronic and acute bacterial prostatitis.

Chronic prostatitis is not contagious, it is impossible to catch it through sexual contact (sexual contact). There are several factors that increase the probability of developing this disease.

Development factors include:

  • Problems with the development of the genitourinary system.
  • Bladder catheterization.
  • Early infection of the genitourinary system.
  • Symptoms of chronic prostatitis.

Each person experiences different symptoms of the disease, but in its main manifestation there are similar symptoms.

Bacterial prostatitis (acute) is manifested by clear and acute symptoms, appears suddenly, usually scares men and immediately goes to the clinic.

Acute prostatitis, symptoms characteristics:

  • Pain when urinating.
  • Fever (possibly chills).
  • Feeling a full bladder even after emptying it.

Chronic prostatitis has similar symptoms but they are less severe than acute prostatitis.

Chronic prostatitis, symptoms characteristics:

  • Frequent urge to empty the bladder;
  • Temporary (periodic) pain in the testicles;
  • Pain in the bladder;
  • Pain in the lumbar region (lower back);
  • Pain during ejaculation;
  • Examination by palpation may reveal pain and examination of the prostate gland.

Diagnosis of the disease: Chronic prostatitis

In order to rule out other diseases of the urogenital system, an accurate diagnosis should be made by a qualified physician at the clinic. Often, with various diseases of one system of the body, there are similar symptoms, so do not engage in independent research and self-medication, but consult a doctor immediately at the first symptoms.

There are various examination methods to make an accurate diagnosis. After all, prostatitis can be manifested by symptoms similar to cystitis, adenoma or urethritis.

During the examination, the doctor examines the rectum with the help of fingers (in medical gloves) treated with oil jelly. This type of examination is called a rectal examination. The prostate gland is palpated along the wall of the rectum as well as in front of it (in front of the rectum). Using this method, the doctor will be able to determine if the prostate gland is enlarged and if his pain is revealed during the examination.

If a man has chronic prostatitis, then the palpation examination will bring the patient only temporary pain and minimal discomfort, which will pass very quickly.

Is advanced form of chronic prostatitis dangerous?

In most cases, men ignore some of the symptoms of the disease, which exacerbates the further development of inflammation of the prostate gland. Such "careless" treatment of human health can be caused by the fact that the normal production of hormones in the male body is reduced, while problems with the hormonal background can lead to a decrease in male libido (sexual desire). It is also possible to develop problems with erectile function. Taken together these diseases are very difficult.

Inflammation of the prostate gland slows down the normal production of secretions and consequently sperm lose activity. Most often, the consequences of progressive chronic prostatitis are infertility and impaired potency.

Effective treatment of prostatitis

Treatment methods depend on the form of inflammation and the type of prostatitis.

Medical treatment

At the diagnosis of bacterial prostatitis (acute) the doctor may prescribe antibiotics to the patient for about two weeks. If prostatitis is advanced, the patient may be hospitalized and given intravenous injections.

If the patient has difficulty urinating, the doctor may order a catheter connection (urethral). Bacterial prostatitis is often treated this way.

If the patient has chronic bacterial prostatitis, then antibiotic therapy can be extended from one month to three months. This type of treatment is very effective, in many cases patients recover completely.

If the disease or its symptoms return after treatment, your doctor may change your treatment approach, such as using other pills or prostate massage.

Effective treatment of chronic prostatitis largely depends on the timely treatment of the clinic.

Prostate massage

Men do not like prostate massage treatments because the whole process is very unpleasant. It should be noted that by choosing a good specialist you can avoid all the unpleasant moments and sensations during prostate massage. Massage refers to the methods that give a tangible result almost immediately.

Prostate massage has many advantages, one of the main one being that massage increases blood circulation to the prostate gland. It also increases muscle tone, frees the prostate gland ducts, reduces inflammation, has an antibacterial character and enhances the effect of other therapies.

Massage therapy is an important necessity in chronic prostatitis!


Traditional medicine includes many ways to treat prostate problems, but the effect occurs repeatedly and is not as effective as with medical treatment.

Treatment of chronic prostatitis with traditional medicine has no side effects. The best recipes include treating prostatitis with chestnut shells and propolis.

Chestnut shells for the treatment of prostatitis require hot water, which is poured into the chestnut shells, after which it is slightly soaked and taken as a tea.

Treatment of chronic prostatitis with propolis is a very popular method. Due to the rich composition of propolis, prostate problems can be cured at the first symptoms. Special rectal propolis suppositories are used for treatment, which have antibacterial effect.

You can also use a special tincture of propolis, which has an antibacterial effect and relieves the symptoms of chronic prostatitis.

Special diet

In order for treatment of prostatitis to be effective, you must pay attention to the patient's diet. When treating chronic prostatitis you should abandon the wrong lifestyle, especially tobacco and alcohol.

A man should include in the diet more fruits, vegetables, berries, special teas (herbal tinctures), as well as fermented dairy products. You should avoid heavy foods: smoked foods, fatty foods, carbonated drinks, convenient foods, fast food.

To choose the right food during treatment you can consult a doctor who will suggest or prescribe a special diet.

Men should undergo vitamin therapy (take a course of vitamins), as well as enrich the body with essential micronutrients.

Sports treatment

As already mentioned, prostatitis most often develops in people who lead a sedentary and lifeless lifestyle. To maintain men's health, you have to run or walk a lot. Jogging and walking improves blood circulation and circulation in the genitals. Such optimal physical activity will positively affect men's health.

Men should exercise in the morning, it can be both light exercises and active sit-ups. The older a man gets, the more time he needs to devote to health and sports. The fact is that the whole male reproductive system depends on the general state of male health and also on a normal hormonal background. And, as you know, sport takes an active part in the normal production of the hormone testosterone, which is the basis of men's sexual health. Sport activates all the processes going on in the body and increases the production of the male hormone testosterone.

Psychological treatment

The psychological state of a person is important in the treatment of prostatitis. If a person is positive about the fact that recovery will happen soon, then most likely it will happen. But if a person has doubts in his mind about his recovery, then most often the treatment of any disease is delayed for a long time.

A man should set himself up for kindness, in such a difficult period he can even ask for the support of loved ones. After all, any treatment is a little stressful. Therefore, in the treatment of chronic prostatitis it is important to be close to people who raise morale and believe in a speedy cure of the disease.

Men should also try not to get nervous during treatment, especially if the treatment does not give quick results. As you know, a man's psychological attitude directly affects the health of his reproductive system. Effective treatment of prostatitis is possible only in a positive mood!

Predictions for the future after treatment of chronic prostatitis?

In most cases chronic prostatitis responds well to treatment and has no adverse effects on men's health.

Prostatitis develops slowly, so it is important not to start developing the disease and you should consult a specialist at the first manifestation of the disease.

Prostatitis responds well to treatment in the initial stage. It should also be noted that prostatitis has the ability to aggravate genital problems. Often prostatitis becomes the reason why a man loses sexual desire and longing. Men may not even be aware that they have inflammation of the prostate gland, short-term symptoms due to fatigue or other causes, so they delay treatment. Such an attitude towards your own health can lead to the most negative consequences. So try to have an ultrasound examination of the prostate gland, at least once or twice a year.

Also, men over the age of 40 should consult a doctor more often, to check not only the prostate gland, but also other organs of the reproductive system. Preventing the disease is easier than treating its consequences.
