Questions and Answers

Prostate infection?I am 28 years old, six months back I start feeling something wrong in the area between my rectum and scrotum, it is very slight pain.
One month ago I went to a doctor and he check everywhere, also he make ultrasound scan for my down parts, he told me every thing seems to be normal, your prostate size is 18 gm and this is normal in your age. In addition, he ask me to make urine test and according to him every thing is okay.
After that, he prescribes to me “vibramicin” and he said most probably you have infection in your prostate.
After the second tablet the pain gone completely, but I continue to take the tablets ten days.
After more than three weeks, the same pain started gain. Just the same….
I am doing exercises regularly, maintaining my self and my home clean, no partner, living alone.
What to do??? What is that??? Should I take the same medicine again?

[display_name id=”1″]Hi,
info you’ve given is not quite enough, I tried to email you but I can’t. Your prostate size is indeed normal. Vibramycin is the other name of doxycyclin, an antibiotic commonly used to fight infections. You might wanna provide some more info which would be useful, like
do you remeber to have done anything before the pain first occured(anything from an unprotected or even protected sexual intercourse, to injury or previous disease/infections you recall to have had at that time.)
also, has this “slight pain” persisted throughout the 6 months, or just appeared and then disappered and appeared again by itself?
And also, do you see or can you feel any rashes/bumps/or anything else that seems to be abnormal around this area?
Don’t take the same antibiotic again without consulting the doc first. Normally antibiotics are admnistered for 7 days and if not effective, may be taken for 7 days more. If there’s still no effect, it’s best you change the antibiotic because your body will get used to its ingredients anyway and it will have no effect.
My advise is to go the doctor again, or to another doctor, or if you prefer to a private clinic/specialist and to explain all you’ve exlained here. Ask for blood tests just in case. If you had a partner at that time, or even some time before this, you might wanna have some STDs tests done, again, just in case.(actually std tests are done with blood and/or urine samples so once you tell the doc you want a blood test you can choose what you want to be tested for, i.e. Which diseases and/or which “blood components and characteristics” levels).
Sorry but with the info you’ve provided that’s all I can tell you for now.The websites are for you to read on the prostatitis and the antibiotic you’ve taken. The last one contains some other conditions(scrow down to ‘differentials”) but that’s just for additonal info, it does not mean you have any of these.




Is there any way to cure a prostate infection without antibiotics?For about 2 months my husband has been having some lower abdominal pain. He says the pain comes and goes. When he urinates, the flow isn’t as strong as it normally is and it starts to hurt. He complains that when he works out that there’s sometimes a sting or a shock to follow with it. Now I think it’s a prostate infection. Is there any way to treat a prostate infection without antibiotics? I know there drinking juice such as cranberry juice, or anything that has antioxidants like yogurt, but is there anything else? Thanks.

[display_name id=”1″]It’s most likely an enlarged prostate, not an infection. Very common male problem. Saw palmetto is the usual herbal treatment. Do some research at and Natural News. You can also talk to a holistic nutritionist at your local health food store.
Yogurt doesn’t have antioxidants, it has minor amounts of probiotics. Cranberry juice helps to prevent urinary tract infections.
Can a bladder infection kill you?I’ve had a bladder infection since August, and have gone on antibiotics for the fourth time now, and still seem to have it. Can this kill me?

[display_name id=”1″]Bladder infections are known as cystitis or inflammation of the bladder. They are common in women but very rare in men. About 20% of all women get at least one bladder infection at some time in their lives. However, a man’s chance of getting cystitis increases as he ages due to in part to an increase in prostate size.Doctors aren’t sure exactly why women have many more bladder infections than men. They suspect it may be because women have a shorter urethra, the tube that carries urine out of the bladder. This relatively short passageway — only about an inch and a half long — makes it easier for bacteria to find their way into the bladder. Also, the opening to a woman’s urethra lies close to both the vagina and the anus. That makes it easier for bacteria from those areas to get into the urinary tract.

Bladder infections are not serious if treated right away. But they tend to come back in some people. This can lead to kidney infections, which are more serious and may result in permanent kidney damage. So it’s very important to treat the underlying causes of a bladder infection and to take preventive steps to keep them from coming back.

In elderly people, bladder infections are often difficult to diagnose. The symptoms are less specific and are frequently blamed on aging. Older people who suddenly become incontinent or who begin acting lethargic or confused should be checked by a doctor for a bladder infection.
What Causes Them?

Most bladder infections are caused by various strains of E. Coli, bacteria that normally live in the gut.

Women sometimes get bladder infections after sex. Vaginal intercourse makes it easier for bacteria to reach the bladder through the urethra. Some women contract the infection — dubbed “honeymoon cystitis” — almost every time they have sex. Women who use a diaphragm as their primary method of birth control are also particularly susceptible to bladder infections, perhaps because the device presses on the bladder and keeps it from emptying completely. Bacteria then rapidly reproduce in the stagnant urine left in the bladder. Pregnant women, whose bladders become compressed as the fetus grows, are also prone to infections. Use of condoms and use of spermicides also increase the risk of urinary tract infections.

Bladder infections can be quite uncomfortable and potentially serious. But for most women, they clear up quickly and are relatively harmless if treated.

In men, a bladder infection is almost always a symptom of an underlying disorder and is generally a cause for concern. Often it indicates the presence of an obstruction that is interfering with the urinary tract. Some studies have shown that uncircumcised boys are at risk of contracting a bladder infection during their first year of life possibly because bacteria may collect under the foreskin.

In recent years, more and more bladder infections come from two sexually transmitted bacteria: chlamydia and mycoplasma.

Home and hospital use of catheters — tubes inserted into the bladder to empty it — can also lead to infection.

Some people develop symptoms of a bladder infection when no infection actually exists. Termed interstitial cystitis, this is usually benign but difficult to treat.
