Prostatitis Support Group

Prostatitis is any form of inflammation of the prostate gland. Inflammation of the prostate leads to pain, often during voiding but also in back and rectum. Frequent urination and increased urgency may suggest a cystitis (bladder inflammation). Ejaculation may be painful, as the prostate contracts during emission of semen. Antibiotics are the first line of treatment in acute prostatitis, which is classified as a medical emergency.

    I am 25 years old and have had prostatitis for almost a year now. it is painfull to sit down and my testicles burn all the time from it. My urologist put me on tamsulosin and doxycycline. Neither one worked. Now he wants to do a bladder scope. Iv read that dental procedures can cause infections and stay in your system. I had a tooth pulled and had an implant put in around the same time this...

    Need advice...

    Hello, I'm 31 yo and diagnosed with non-bacterial prostatitis about 6 months ago.Just a little background, I'm in good health, exercise regularly, and overall would consider my diet to be good. I don't smoke and typically drink 3-4 drinks per week. I've always had a problem with frequent urination, but I would only call it a "problem" now because of my recent diagnosis of prostatitis. My first...
  • I know the whole physical/mental thing is tied together. It just seems like a vicious cycle. If your prostate acts up, you feel crummy and get depressed. If I'm just plain depressed or stressed, it seems like that pain just heads straight for the old prostate. And the urologist I went to gave an info sheet on prostatitis and one of the things was maybe an anti-depressant would be necessary.I...
  • For the past 3-4 years, my PSA has been around 2.6 to 2.8.This week, my lab results show my PSA at 4.5. So the "velocity" is that it has increased approx 1.7 to 1.9 points over the past 17-18 months (previous PSA last taken in May 2014).I'm concerned that this is likely a sign of cancer. My PCP wants me back in 3 months to have another PSA done.Would this type of increase in PSA still be...

    Hi,I would like to share my cure. I got my first prostatits when I was 24. I was on different antibiotics on and off for about 10 years (including biaxin, levaquin, cipro and so on) . I can tell you that they did not help at all, they made things worse. So, when I was 35 I decided to stop trusting my doctors, because obviously they did not know what they were doing. They destroyed my gut flora,...

  • I am a 30 year old male in Denver who has been in perfect health until the last two weeks. I was diagnosed with prostatitis two weeks ago and none of the antibiotic treatments seem to be working. Sure, my urine has cleared up and my semen is a normal color again, but I still have difficulties starting and maintaining a urine stream and I have been constipated the whole time--stool softeners and...

    Variation in symptoms

    0
    I have seen much less info than I would expect on the significance of variation in the symptoms (by time and situation). Does that provide clues toward the basic diagnosis (prostatitis, BPH, cancer) and/or treatment? Is major variation in symptom severity from day to day just an assumed part of Prostate problems, or does it mean something. So far, I have only talked to my primary physician,...

    ok to have sex?

    0
    Hi. In July 2014, I was diagnosed with prostatitis and have been on FloMax since then. I haven't had any pain or complications from prostatitis since then. I need advice if I decide to have anal sex with a partner(of course, using a condom), will it cause any problems or negatively harm my prostate? In other words, is it ok to have anal sex considering my current condition. Thanks.
