Who is at risk?

At risk are those men who lead an unhealthy lifestyle: 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 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 lingers in the body and poisons men's health.

Types of disease

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 men of middle and young age.

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 often, 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 bacteria cause both chronic bacterial and acute bacterial prostatitis.

Chronic prostatitis is not contagious, it cannot be caught through sexual contact (sexual contact). There are some factors that increase the percentage of the 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 its main manifestation there are similar symptoms.

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

Acute prostatitis, symptom characteristics:

  • Pain during urination.
  • 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, characteristics of symptoms:

  • 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;
  • During the examination by palpation, pain and swelling of the prostate gland can be felt.

Diagnosis of the disease: chronic prostatitis

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

In order to make an accurate diagnosis, there are different methods of examination. After all, prostatitis can manifest itself with symptoms that are 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 examination is called a rectal examination. The prostate gland is palpated through the wall of the rectum, as it is located in front of it (in front of the rectum). Using this method, the doctor will be able to determine whether the prostate gland is enlarged and whether its pain is manifested during the study.

If a man has chronic prostatitis, then the examination by palpation 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 exacerbate the further development of inflammation of the prostate gland. Such a "careless" treatment of one’s 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 treat.

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

Effective treatment for prostatitis

Methods of treatment depend on the form of inflammation and the type of prostatitis.

Medication treatment

During the diagnosis of bacterial prostatitis (acute), the doctor may prescribe antibiotics for a course of about two weeks to the patient. 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 in this way.

If a patient has chronic bacterial prostatitis, then antibiotic treatment can last 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, 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 to the clinic.

Prostate massage

Men do not like prostate massage treatment, because the whole process is very unpleasant. It is worth noting that when choosing a good specialist, you can avoid all the 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 is that massage 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!

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 takes an active part in the normal production of the hormone testosterone, which is the basis of male sexual health. Sport activates all the processes in the body 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 disease is delayed for a long time.

A man should set himself up for good, he can also ask for support from loved ones in such a difficult period. After all, any treatment is a little stress. Therefore, during the treatment of chronic prostatitis, it is important that there are those people nearby who will raise morale and believe in a quick cure for the disease.

Forecasts for the future after the treatment of chronic prostatitis?

In most cases, chronic prostatitis responds well to treatment and does not have negative consequences for a man's health.

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 at the initial stage responds well to treatment. It should also be warned that prostatitis has the ability to exacerbate problems with the genital area. Often prostatitis becomes the reason that a man loses sexual desire and desire. Men may not even be aware that they have inflammation of the prostate gland, writing off short-term symptoms for fatigue or other reasons, so they postpone treatment. Such an attitude towards one's health can have the most negative consequences. Therefore, try to undergo an ultrasound examination of the prostate gland, at least once or twice a year.

Also, men over 40 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.
