[display_name id=”0″]What causes prostatitis?

The bacteria that cause acute and chronic bacterial prostatitis get into the prostate from the urethra by backward flow of infected urine into the prostate ducts. Bacterial prostatitis is not contagious and is not considered to be a sexually transmitted disease.

Certain conditions or medical procedures increase the risk of contracting bacterial prostatitis. There is a higher risk if the man has recently had a catheter or other instrument inserted into his urethra, an abnormality of his urinary tract or a recent bladder infection.

Chronic non-bacterial prostatitis results in similar inflammation of the prostate gland, but it may not be due to the typical bacteria that cause urine infections. Organisms called chlamydia or mycoplasma may cause it. Some of these organisms may be transmitted by sexual contact. It may also be due to a chemical or immunologic reaction, perhaps even to urine itself flowing backwards into the prostate ducts.

There is no known cause for prostatodynia. It does not appear to be related to bacteria or inflammation of the prostate gland but may be related to a disorder of the nerves and muscles surrounding the prostate gland.


Causes of Prostatitis
On the scientific level, the causes of prostatitis are not completely understood. There is controversy among the most highly regarded experts. Keep in mind that any one patient may have more than one cause operating at the same time. Or, looked at from another point of view, prostatitis could be several different diseases which present with the same or similar sets of symptoms in different individuals.

There are three main schools of thought about the causes of prostatitis. Each of the following linked pages will soon have additional information related to the potential cause.

Bacterial infection,
Auto-immune response or disordered immune response,
Neuromuscular, tension or physical injury problem

Additional possible causes:
a uric acid disorder,
prostate stones,
a urethral stricture,
a rare tumor,
prostate cancer,
benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH, non-cancerous growth of the prostate),
a food allergy,
a yeast infestation,
a specific yeast problem from the Genus Candida,
or a virus.
If you’ve had prostatitis for very long and had very many appointments to try to deal with it, you’ve heard some of these theories.

Does it matter what is causing it? Will knowing the cause help you get over it? The answer would be “yes,” if only determining the cause were simple. (See the “Methods ” page for a discussion of methods of treating prostatitis.) Also, unfortunately, even doctors who are sure of the cause of prostatitis in their patients cannot cure all their patients.

If your prostatitis is caused by bacterial infection, knowing that should help your doctor treat the infection and make you better. Unfortunately, many doctors and clinics do only cursory checking for bacteria. But even doctors who do very careful checking for bacteria, and indeed find bacteria, cannot always make their patients’ symptoms go away.

Similarly, ruling out bacteria and going on one of the other hypotheses does not necessarily help either. If you thought or even knew that your prostatitis is caused by an immune disorder, does that mean there is a clear route to fixing the problem? Not likely.

There are therapies around for fixing physical problems. There are people who can teach you relaxation techniques, or muscle-strengthening techniques, to repair or ameliorate problems with your pelvic floor musculature. But there is no clear path that works for everyone.

Why can’t doctors fix you up? Well, for one thing, they aren’t trained very well in diagnosing and treating prostatitis. Urologists spend most of their time studying surgery. If prostatitis were something that could be fixed by surgery, they’d give it a try. And other doctors tell patients to “learn to live with it.”

The upshot of all this confusion is that YOU, and only you, brother, are going to have to take charge of finding out what’s causing your prostatitis . Sure, you’ll need doctors to help you, and to run tests and interpret them for you, and prescribe drugs if necessary. But YOU are going to have to be the one who is well-armed with questions and demanding enough to get your doctor to get to the bottom of things.


Natural cures for Prostate infection?I am a 35 year old male who has a recurring prostate infection. I went to the Dr previously and they prescribed some medicine and 90 days later it went away, but, now it’s back again. I would like to try a more homeopathic alternative this time as I did not like some of the side effects of the prescribed medication. Can anyone suggest anything? Thank you in advance.

[display_name id=”0″]Has your urologist determined what is causing the infection? Problems with the little man can be serious in several ways. Go to another urologist and see if you can identify what is causing the infection.

Now herbals—-reference these on the web and research them for yourself. Herbals of one type may help you where another may not—experiment and become knowledgeable. This will not happen over
night— i have been studying over six decades.

Will not having sex cause you to have a prostate infection?I’ve got one. I have a doctor’s appointment next week but in the meantime, I’m REALLY having a hard time peeing. I haven’t had sex for awhile. My question is if a male doesn’t have sex or sexual release will this cause him to get prostate infection?

[display_name id=”0″]Lol don’t listen to him, if you can’t pee try to drink more water. It will not give you any infection if you don’t have sex. If it does then how do virgin people still living fine?
