Who is at risk?

Those men who lead an unhealthy lifestyle are at risk: inactivity, overweight, sedentary lifestyle. The disease is due to the fact that in men leading an unhealthy lifestyle, blood circulation (circulation) in the pelvic region is disturbed. Then there is a stagnation of blood in the reproductive system, which leads to the development of prostatitis. During the development of prostatitis, the prostate gland also increases, therefore the level of urine increases, which remains in the body and poisons men's health.

types of disease

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

Bacterial prostatitis (acute)

This is a type of disease in which the main causative agent is a bacterial infection. The manifestation of the disease and its symptoms always occurs unexpectedly. 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 hostile as in the acute form of the disease. Most of the time, there are no special symptoms of the disease, or the symptoms appear very slowly and for a long time.

Reasons for the development of chronic prostatitis.

The main causes of the development of the disease include bacteria that enter the prostate gland with urine (through the urinary canals). The bacterium causes chronic bacterial and acute bacterial prostatitis.

Chronic prostatitis is not contagious, it cannot be spread through sexual contact (sexual contact). There are some factors that increase the percentage of possibility of developing this disease.

Development factors include:

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

Each man experiences a variety of symptoms of the manifestation of the disease, but in the main manifestation of it there are similar symptoms.

Bacterial (acute) prostatitis is manifested by bright and acute symptoms, it occurs suddenly, as a rule, it scares a man and he immediately goes to the clinic.

Acute prostatitis, features of symptoms:

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

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

Chronic prostatitis, features of symptoms:

  • Frequent urge to empty the bladder;
  • temporary (periodic) pain in the testicles;
  • bladder pain;
  • Pain in the lumbar region (lower back);
  • Pain during ejaculation;
  • During examination by palpation, the manifestation of pain and probing of swelling of the prostate gland is possible.

Diagnosis of the disease: chronic prostatitis.

To exclude other diseases of the genitourinary system, an accurate diagnosis must be made in the clinic by a qualified doctor. Often, with different diseases of one of the body's systems, there are similar symptoms, so do not engage in independent research and self-treatment, but immediately consult a doctor at the first symptoms.

To make an accurate diagnosis, there are different examination methods. After all, prostatitis can manifest itself with symptoms similar to cystitis, adenoma or urethritis.

During the study, the doctor examines the rectum with the help of fingers (in medical gloves) treated with petroleum jelly. This type of exam is called a rectal exam. The prostate gland is palpable through the wall of the rectum, as it is in front of it (facing the rectum). With this method, the doctor will be able to determine if the prostate is enlarged and if its pain is manifested during the study.

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

Is the advanced form of chronic prostatitis dangerous?

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

During inflammation of the prostate, the normal production of secretion slows down and therefore the spermatozoa lose their activity. Very often, the consequences of advanced chronic prostatitis are infertility and reduced potency.

Effective treatment for prostatitis.

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

drug treatment

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

If the patient has difficulty urinating, the doctor may prescribe the connection of a catheter (urethral). In many cases, bacterial prostatitis is treated this way.

If a patient has chronic bacterial prostatitis, antibiotic treatment can last from one 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, the doctor may change the treatment approach, such as using other pills or prostate massage.

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

prostate massage

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

Prostate massage has many positive aspects, one of the main ones being that it increases blood flow to the prostate gland. It also increases muscle tone, frees the ducts of the prostate gland, reduces inflammation, is antibacterial in nature, and enhances the effect of other treatments.

In chronic prostatitis, massage therapy is an important necessity!


Traditional medicine includes many ways to treat problems with the prostate gland, but the effect occurs more than once and is not as effective as during drug treatment.

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

To treat prostatitis with chestnut shells, hot water is required, which is poured into chestnut shells, after which they insist a little and drink the infusion as a tea.

The treatment of chronic prostatitis with propolis is a very popular method. Due to the rich composition of propolis, prostate problems can be cured already at the first symptoms of their manifestation. For treatment, special rectal propolis suppositories are used, which have an antibacterial effect.

Also, you can use a special tincture of propolis, which has an antibacterial effect and eliminates the symptoms of chronic prostatitis.

special diet

In order for the treatment of prostatitis to be effective, you need to pay attention to the patient's diet. During the treatment of chronic prostatitis, you need to give up the wrong way of life, especially tobacco and alcohol.

A man should include more fruits, vegetables, berries, special teas (herbal tinctures), as well as fermented milk products in his diet. Heavy foods should be abandoned: smoked foods, fatty foods, carbonated drinks, ready meals, fast food.

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

Men should undergo vitamin therapy (take a vitamin course), as well as enrich their body with essential trace elements.

sports treatment

As mentioned above, prostatitis most often develops in those people who lead a sedentary and sedentary lifestyle. To maintain good male health, you need to run or walk a lot. Running and walking improve blood circulation and blood flow to the genitals. Such optimal physical activity will favorably affect the health of a man.

Men should exercise in the morning, it can be both light exercises and active squats. The older a man gets, the more time he needs to devote to his health and sports. The fact is that the entire male reproductive system depends on the general state of male health, and also on the normal hormonal background. And, as you know, sport actively participates in the normal production of the hormone testosterone, which is the basis of male sexual health. Sport activates all body processes and increases the production of the male hormone testosterone.

Psychological treatment

In the treatment of prostatitis, the psychological mood of a person is important. If a person is positively disposed to the fact that there will be a recovery soon, then most likely it will happen. But if a person in his thoughts doubts his recovery, then most often the treatment of any illness is delayed for a long time.

A man must prepare himself forever, he can also ask for the support of his loved ones in such a difficult period. After all, any treatment is a bit of stress. Therefore, during the treatment of chronic prostatitis, it is important that there are close people who raise morale and believe in a quick cure for the disease.

A man should also try not to be nervous during treatment, especially if the treatment does not give quick results. As you know, the psychological attitude of a man directly affects the health of his reproductive system. Effective treatment of prostatitis is possible only with a positive frame of mind!

Forecasts for the future after the treatment of chronic prostatitis?

In most cases, chronic prostatitis responds well to treatment and has no negative consequences for the health of men.

Prostatitis develops slowly, so the main thing is not to start the development of the disease, and at the first manifestations of the disease, you should consult a specialist.

Prostatitis in the initial stage responds well to treatment. It should also be noted that prostatitis has the ability to exacerbate problems in the genital area. Often prostatitis becomes the reason that a man loses sexual desire and desire. Men may not even realize they have a swollen prostate gland, ruling out short-term symptoms for fatigue or other reasons, thus postponing treatment. Such an attitude towards one's health can have the most negative consequences. Therefore, try to have an ultrasound examination of the prostate at least once or twice a year.

In addition, men over 40 years of age should visit a doctor more often, check not only the prostate gland, but also other organs of the reproductive system. It is easier to prevent a disease than to treat its consequences.
