What Is Trichomonal prostatitis and How Is It Diagnosed?

Trichomonas is a human parasite, which parasitizes in the prostate, causing prostatitis and it is called trichomonal prostatitis. Some scholars call this condition prostatic trichomoniasis. Trichomonal prostatitis is not uncommon in the clinic, but it is easy to be neglected. 

One reason is that the etiological diagnosis of trichomonal prostatitis (finding trichomonas) is difficult; the other is that clinicians are used to attributing prostatitis to common bacterial infections. The clinical symptoms of trichomonal prostatitis are similar to those of bacterial prostatitis. Patients will have pain after urination, blunt perineal pain, rectal tenesmus, and other discomforts. 
In the acute stage, patients can also have frequent and urgent urination, urodynia, and other urinary tract irritation symptoms, and even fever and other systemic symptoms.
It is well known that trichomonal vaginitis is a common disease in women. When a man has sex with a woman with trichomonal vaginitis, he may be infected. Trichomonas is challenging to detect in patients with trichomonal prostatitis. Even if fresh urine or prostate specimens are taken for microscopic examination, Trichomonas often need to be found repeatedly. 
In addition to the busy outpatient work, doctors are accustomed to treating prostatitis patients with bacterial causes. And patients have certain pain when taking liquid from prostate massage, and it is difficult to take samples repeatedly. Therefore, the diagnosis is challenging. However, it is constructive to inquire about the history of Trichomonas vaginitis of the spouses of patients who have clinical symptoms of prostatitis and poor antibiotic treatment effect.
Since male Trichomonas are almost invariably transmitted from women, and vaginal Trichomonas tests are convenient and accurate for women, they should be mobilized to receive such tests. In addition, for men whose spouses had been cured by trichomonas, there is still a risk of Trichomonas prostatitis because it can infect each other through sexual life so that trichomonas infection will be persistent. 
Therefore, whether the man has Trichomonas or the woman suffers from Trichomonas vaginitis, both of them should be treated together. Women with vaginitis can use conservative natural medicine such as Fuyan Pill, while men can take Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill. Under the guidance of doctors, medication can receive the apparent curative effect.
Finally, it should be noted that trichomonal prostatitis patients can also be complicated with a bacterial infection. This factor should not be neglected in the process of diagnosis and treatment. If bacterial growth can be found in prostatic fluid bacterial culture, and drug sensitivity tests are conducted to select antibiotics for patients with bacterial causes, the curative effect will be more remarkable.
Trichomonal prostatitis often occurs after trichomonal urethritis, and it takes a long time to produce the symptoms. The main symptoms of trichomonal prostatitis are secretions at the urethral orifice, pain after urination, stabbing pain or heavy feeling in perineum and rectum, which are similar to those of chronic prostatitis. 
When any patient with chronic prostatitis has no response to the commonly used antibiotics or has little effect, the possibility of Trichomonas infection should be considered, especially when your spouse has trichomonal vaginitis. At this time, microscopic examination of prostatic fluid should be done to find trichomonas. Best wishes for recovery!
