How can you differentiate between prostatitis and a std?

Prostatitis is a painful condition with inflammations in prostate gland. Acute prostatitis is usually a result of infection in the urinary tract or infection carried by the blood. Symptoms include fever, low back pain, and difficulty or pain in urination; the gland is tender and swollen. In many cases, the infection spreads from the urethra and is contracted through sexual transmission. 

However, is prostatitis a kind of sexually transmitted disease (STD)? Sexually transmitted disease (STD) is an infection or disease that passed from person to person through sexual contact. It has been clearly demonstrated that whether prostatitis is a kind of sexually transmitted disease depends on its source of infection. 
How can we distinguish the prostatitis from STD? As the routes of transmission is different in these diseases, we can differentiate the prostatitis from STD by its pathogenesis and symptoms. Acute infectious prostatitis is caused by bacteria and is treated with antimicrobial medication. Acute infectious prostatitis comes on suddenly, and its symptoms, including chills and fever, can be severe. While chronic infectious prostatitis is also caused by bacteria and requires antimicrobial medication. 
Unlike an acute prostate infection, the only symptoms of chronic infectious prostatitis may be recurring infectious cystitis. These bacteria cannot be easily transmitted during sex. However, when the prostatitis is infected by mycoplasma or chlamydia, it may act as a STD that can be transmitted through vaginal, anal, or oral sex. Trichomoniasis can also picked up from contact with damp or moist objects such as towels, wet clothing, or a toilet seat, if the genital area gets in contact with these damp objects. Some STDs cause no symptoms. But STDs can still be passed from person to person even if there are no symptoms.
No matter which pathogenesis is associated to the prostatitis, it should be treated properly and immediately, as the bacteria, mycoplasma or chlamydia, that cause prostatitis may get into the prostate from the urethra by backward flow of infected urine into the prostate ducts or from rectal bacteria. In this situation, the remove of the infections would be much more difficult. Diuretic and anti-inflammatory pill is a widely used Chinese herbal medicine in the treatment of both acute and chronic prostatitis. It is rich in antimicrobial compounds and extensively effective for bacterial infection in prostatitis and/or urethra. By taking the diuretic and anti-inflammatory pill, the infection would be removed without causing any side effects or antimicrobial resistance.
