Your Guide to Prostatitis

Prostatitis is an inflammatory condition of the prostate gland. Typically, cases of prostatitis result from a bacterial infection, although evidence of infection is not always found. If your prostate is infected or inflamed it can cause a myriad of symptoms such as painful urination and ejaculation, and accelerated frequency of urination. 

These statistics indicate that one out of every two males will have some sort of prostate-related issue in their lifetime. We all know how serious an untreated prostate problem can become, so it only makes sense to stay ahead of the curve by educating yourself and constantly being aware of the dangers.   

Nonbacterial prostatitis and prostatodynia, also called ‘chronic pelvic pain syndrome’ (CPPS), are the most commonly diagnosed issues of the prostate. Bacterial infections account for less than 5–10% of all cases. Cases involving an acute bacterial infection occur most often in men under the age of age 35, and chronic bacterial infections normally affect men between the ages 40 and 70.

PSA Reading - Did you know…?

Have you had an orgasm within 24 hours prior to testing? According to research, over 40% of men had their total PSA above the baseline level within a day after ejaculation. Therefore, PSA testing after ejaculation may lead to an erroneous interpretation of the results. [1]

Even though the general percentages are low for bacterial infections, this doesn’t mean that they’re not a valid concern. The fact is, any percentage is cause for alarm because potentially you could still be inflicted. After all, isn’t it always better to be safe than sorry?

This must be taken into account when considering your health. If you want to get the most accurate assessment of your total prostate health, be sure to cover all the bases before having your test. A false interpretation of your PSA levels could allow you to ignore a serious problem for a long period of time, resulting in a series of catastrophes.

Symptoms of acute bacterial prostatitis (ABP) are usually sudden. They include the following:

  • Chills
  • Lower Back Pain
  • Muscle pain (myalgia)
  • Pain in penis, testicles, and area between the scrotum and the rectum (perineum)
  • Painful ejaculation
  • Fever
  • Frequent urination
  • Tender, swollen prostate
  • Incomplete emptying of bladder
  • Joint pain (arthralgia)
  • Painful urination (dysuria)
  • Sensation of having to urinate immediately, often accompanied by bladder pain or spasm (urgency)

Symptoms of chronic bacterial prostatitis (CBP) and nonbacterial prostatitis are generally less severe than those of ABP and include the following:

  • Blood in semen (hematospermia)
  • Lower back pain
  • Pain in lower abdomen
  • Painful ejaculation
  • Discomfort in genital area and perineum
  • Dysuria
  • Fever
  • Recurring urinary tract infection (UTI)

Patients with prostatodynia have symptoms of prostatitis but there is no evidence of infection or inflammation.

Excessive Ejaculation & Prostatitis

Frequent ejaculation can abrade your prostate, bulbourethral glands, and urethra, while inducing extra production of prostaglandin-E2 causing swelling and burning.  A swelling and inflamed prostate and urethral duct causes you to experience urination difficulty after ejaculation.  This is why some men experience post-ejaculation pelvic or prostate pain, and uncontrollable seminal leakage.

Middle-aged men, seniors, and sexually exhausted young men will experience more prostate discomfort and pain if untreated. Continuously ejaculating within a 48 hour time period will keep PSA and prostaglandin E-2 levels of prostatitis patients constantly high, hindering the body’s chances to rejuvenate and recover by itself.
