Why Do You Still Have Urinary Urgency and Frequency After Your Prostatitis Is Cured?

Prostatitis is characterized by recurrent attacks in the clinic. Therefore, its treatment cycle is also longer. In the process of treating this disease, some patients have had this experience: prostatitis cured, but still urinate urgently and frequently?


Prostatitis is a common disease in male urology, caused by a variety of complex causes, with urethral irritation symptoms and chronic pelvic pain as the main clinical manifestations. Among them, urinary urgency and frequency are typical symptoms. 

Theoretically, if prostatitis is cured, there should be no more symptoms of frequent urination and urinary urgency because the main reason for many prostate patients to visit the clinic is urinary disorders, such as frequent urination, urinary urgency, painful urination, urine retention; some will also have white fluid during urinating in the morning urination; some of them will be accompanied by bloating pain and soreness in the abdomen.

Therefore, if a patient has been cured but still has symptoms of abnormal urination, we must consider the prostatitis cure criteria. 

First, if some patients do routine prostate fluid examinations after completing the treatment course and find that the white blood cells are gone, they think all the symptoms should disappear, which is invalid. Normal prostate fluid is not the only indicator of cure. Moreover, the degree of severity shown in the laboratory report and the patient's self-perceived symptoms are often not proportional to each other, which is determined by the characteristics of prostatitis.

Secondly, the onset of prostatitis is mainly manifested in the congestion and edema of the prostate gland ducts and the whole gland. Although the inflammation disappears, the congestion and edema are not completely restored, so further treatment is needed. Otherwise, it may cause a recurrence of symptoms again.

Finally, many patients subjectively feel that their symptoms have disappeared, but the bacteria in their bodies have not yet been killed. Once the medication is stopped at this point, it may lead to a resurgence of prostatitis, and the symptoms of urinary urgency and frequency may repeat.

For example, antibiotic drugs are the most commonly used for this disease. If patients take and stop taking them repeatedly, they may easily develop drug resistance, which will lead to the reappearance of urinary urgency and frequent urination symptoms. 

For this consideration, patients can choose traditional Chinese medicine for treatment. The Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill can eliminate inflammation and cure prostatitis. Moreover, it can comprehensively regulate the patient's genitourinary systems without producing drug resistance and other side effects.

Patients can start with the following criteria to determine whether prostatitis is completely cured:

The First Criterion: Prostatitis may cause urinary abnormalities, sexual dysfunction, neurasthenia, local pain and discomfort, etc. The standard of cure is that these symptoms should disappear completely or basically disappear consciously.

The Second Criterion: on examination, the man's prostate is normal or significantly improved on palpation and is normal on locoregional segmental urinalysis.

The Third Criterion: in the examination, the prostate is normal in size on palpation, as well as soft, with no pressure, no fibrous, hard nodules, and the central sulcus is obvious. The size and morphology of the ultrasound examination are normal, as well as normal staining of prostate gland smear, negative localized bacterial culture, and lecithin microsomes are significantly more than before treatment. If all these are normal, the disease is considered cured.

The Fourth Criterion: If the tests' results remain normal 2 to 3 times in a row after various tests, it also indicates that the prostatitis is cured.

In conclusion, if the symptoms of urinary urgency and frequency are not fully recovered, prostatitis is not fully cured, and patients need to continue treatment. At the same time, patients should develop good habits to prevent the recurrence of symptoms, such as eating less spicy and stimulating food, quitting smoking and alcohol, drinking more water, not holding urine, and exercising properly.
