Prevention of Prostatitis

Causes of prostatitis

1.Bacterial infection. Unclean sexual life or unprotected intercourse could possibly cause urethritis. The pathogenic micro-organisms of urethritis are mainly bacteria, viruses, mycoplasma, and chlamydia etc.. If urethritis is not timely cured, the prostate gland would be infected by the pathogen, which could possibly cause bacterial prostatitis.

2. Western medicine could control the inflammation in some cases. Although the tests show that the mycoplasma and chlamydia turn negtive, which suggests that the Western medicine has achieved the efficacy of sterilizing, the pathogenic microorganisms would stimulate the prostate gland, causing the gland become dropsical, obese and hyperplastic. This would cause non-bacterial prostatitis. And men with nonbacterial prostatitis have obvious symptoms and the symptoms would become more and more serious.

3. Once the nearby organs of the prostate gland are infected by pathogen,the prostate gland itself would possibly be infected too, which causes prostatitis. What’s more, chronic constipation and hemorrhoids may also cause chronic prostatitis.

4. The nearby lesions spread to the prostate gland via the lymphatic system. For instance, the infections of the lower urethra, rectum or colon could infect the prostate gland via lymphatic system, causing prostatitis.

5. Sitting or standing for long time, or excessive masturbation or sexual lifewould lead to local congestion of the male sexual organs, which can possibly cause chronic nonbacterial prostatitis. This can also cause congestion of the prostate gland, which provides soil for the reproduction of bacteria and induces prostatitis.


Prevention of Prostatitis

By avoiding from above factors, prostatitis can also be prevented in the following ways.

1.Practice good hygiene. Wash your penis regularly and well and make sure to rinse off all soap when you are finished.

2.Stay hydrated. Regular urination will keep your urethra clear and any bothersome bacteria to a minimum. Drink at least 8 glasses of water each day. If this is not enough to cause regular urination, increase your intake.

3.Do not hold your urine too long. Once you sense the urge to urinate, if at all possible find a restroom and relieve the urge. Holding urine too long can harbor bacteria and irritate your urinary tract.

4.Avoid catheters. These will irritate the urinary tract and increase the exposure of the area to outside bacteria. If you are bedridden or hospitalized, try to use a bedpan if at all possible.

5.Use a condom whenever you have sex unless you are in a long-term monogamous relationship and your partner has been tested for STDs. Acquiring an STD increases your risk of prostatitis.

6.Take care when riding a bicycle or horse. Injury from these activities can lead to prostatitis.

7.Remain alert for early signs of a urinary tract infection. Early treatment of urinary tract infections can prevent these infections from leading to prostatitis.
