The Symptoms of Chlamydial Prostatitis

1. Symptoms of Chlamydial prostatitis

Chlamydial prostatitis, which is induced by chronic Chlamydia infection, is a worldwide stubborn disease. Patients with such a condition may have a rather miserable life.

The urinary tract will be firstly infected by chlamydia. Men with urinary infection would have the symptoms of chlamydial urethritis, such as frequent urination, urgent urination, burning micturition, or dysuria. If chlamydial urethritis is not cured timely, that's to say, chlamydia doesn't turn negative, the prostate will be infected. Chlamydia stimulates the prostate gland, which will lead to edema and hypertrophy in the prostate and decrease in lecithin, and the patients will have the symptoms from both of urethritis and prostatitis. The main clinical manifestations of chlamydial prostatitis include testicular pain, perineum bulge, lower abdominal distension, ejaculation pain, dripping white, blood sperm, low survival rate of sperm, nonliquefaction of semen, etc..


2. Complications of Chlamydial prostatitis

Since male urethra, the prostate gland, seminal vesicle, and epididymal interlinked, men with chlamydial prostatitis often have chlamydial urethritis, chlamydial epididymitis or chlamydial seminal vesiculitis.

The infection of seminal vesicles and testes by chlamydia will affect the quality of the sperms and semen, leading to decline in vitality of the sperms, dead sperms, oligospermia and azoospermia. And the rate of the deformity of the sperms will be increased.

Since the prostate gland is very close to seminal duct and seminal vesicle, and the ejaculatory ducts enter the prostate gland from the upper part of the gland, and ending in the gland, the infection of the proatate gland by chlamydia will affect sexual function. And it can also lead to azoospermia due to obstruction in seminal duct.

Male chlamydial prostatitis could be complicated by epididymitis, orchitis, male infertility. Therefore, chlamydial prostatitis is the main cause of infertility and sexual dysfunction in men.


3. Tests for chlamydial prostatitis

Diagnosis of prostatitis usually involves a complete medical history and physical examination, including a Digital Rectal Examination (DRE) to check the prostate for tenderness. A test may also be performed to detect white blood cells and/or bacteria in the urine and semen.

Chlamydia Culture

The McCoy cells, Hela-229 cells and BHK cells are sensitive to Chlamydia trachomatis. Of them , the McCoy cells is most commonly used. Once the incubated McCoy cells are stained by monoclonal fluorescent antibody, the diagnosis of the disease would be quickly made out. The sensitivity of the culture is as high as 80% -90%. And once the chlamydia cultures are positive, the diagnosis would be confirmed.

Chlamydia is a very special kind of free-living bacteria. Chlamydia is unlike other bacteria or virus because it has no cell walls and therefore must live inside cells. Chlamydia is unlike viruses because it can live in cultures outside of cells and can be killed by certain antibiotics. However, chlamydia cannot be killed by most antibiotics, as most antibiotics work by damaging a bacteria's cell wall. Chlamydia can be killed by antibiotics such as the tetracyclines or erythromycins that do not act on a cell wall.

As many patients with chlamydia infection couldn't be completely cured by Western medicine, they will become the carriers of chlamydia for life. Undoubtedly, their only hope to be cured is to turn to the treatment with traditional Chinese medicine for help.
