Why Do You Still Have Prostatitis Even Though You Have a Normal Sex Life

One question many patients diagnosed with prostatitis have is, "Why do I have prostatitis even though I have a normal sex life?"


Inappropriate sexual life is, of course, closely related to the development of prostatitis. As the arterial blood supply to the prostate is relatively rich, while the venous return resistance is large, if the prostate is repeatedly congested, it will aggravate the obstacle of venous return, local blood stagnation, and resistance decreases. So, the germs stay in the local area for a longer period, which will increase the chance of infection. 

Frequent sexual life, or long-term inhibition of sexual life, can cause prostate congestion. The normal function of the prostate is affected, and naturally, prostatitis may be induced.

However, sex is only one of the causes of prostatitis; other possible causes include:

1. Pathogenic Microorganisms

Various microorganisms, such as bacteria, protozoa, fungi, viruses, etc., can be the source of prostatitis infection, of which bacteria are the most common, such as gonococcus, protozoon, mushroom, viruses, etc. Clinically, it is found that more than 90% of bacterial prostatitis is due to microbial infection.

2. Urine irritation

In medicine, urine stimulation is called chemical elements, and urine contains a variety of acidic and alkaline chemicals. When the patient has the neuroendocrine disorders caused by the high pressure of the posterior urethra, the prostate tube opening damage will form the uric acid and other irritating chemicals reflux into the prostate, inducing chronic prostatitis.

3. Catch a Cold

If the patient is exposed to cold, it may lead to sympathetic nerve activity in the prostate gland, which causes an increase in pressure in the urethra and prevents evacuation. The prostate ducts are also constricted to prevent excretion, resulting in stasis and congestion.

4. Unhealthy Living Habits

Staying up late for a long time, smoking and drinking alcohol, and eating spicy and irritating food will stimulate the prostate, leading to excessive congestion or edema of the prostate gland, thus inducing the disease. In addition, in sedentary behavior or long-time cycling, the perineum is often compressed, resulting in high local temperature or blood circulation obstacles, which leads to a decline in the resistance of the prostate, causing inflammation. 

Frequently holding urine is also a major factor in triggering prostatitis in men. When men hold their urine, the enlarged bladders will press on the prostate area, and the prolonged squeezing of the prostate will easily cause the disease.

5. Anxiety, Depression, and Fearfulness

Experts found that 50% of chronic non-bacterial prostatitis patients have anxiety, depression, fear, pessimism, and other excessive panic disorder. Prostate patients with pain and neurosis often exaggerate the physical discomfort and pain; this condition is called "panic prostatitis."

Therefore, patients with prostatitis should find out the cause of their condition and have it treated. The treatment of prostatitis depends on its specific type and symptoms.

The patient will need antibiotics if the diagnosis is acute or chronic bacterial prostatitis. Acute prostatitis requires intravenous antibiotics for a short period in the hospital, usually 4-6 weeks or longer in some cases. Alpha-blockers may relieve urinary symptoms, such as painful urination or urination difficulty. The doctor may prescribe pain medication or recommend over-the-counter medications such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen. 

For chronic prostatitis, patients can choose traditional Chinese medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill. It is formulated with various herbs that can fully regulate the patient's genitourinary system, eliminating inflammation and relieving pain to treat both the symptoms and the root cause of the disease. 

In addition, psychotherapy can help relieve stress, depression, or anxiety associated with chronic pain.

Patients should also improve their bad habits in daily lives: avoid staying up late, smoking and drinking, and eating spicy and stimulating food; avoid sitting for a long time and holding urine and reduce the frequency and time of riding; strengthen physical exercise to enhance personal physical fitness and immune function.
