Is prostatitis contagious? Should my wife take your pills also?‏

I've been diagnosed with prostatitis recently and I've been suffering from pain and burning for about 2 months. They don't come very sudden but they're worsening. I want to take your meds but some of your pages says that spouse should take it also. Is it true?

First of all, you must find out which kind of prostatitis you are suffering, for there are several kinds of prostatitis. Just some prostatitis can be transmitted to spouse.
Pathogenic bacteria can not be found out in a vast majority of clinical chronic prostatitis. That's to say, this kind of prostatitis belongs to the nonbacterial prostatitis. This type of chronic inflammation will not be transmitted to the woman.
A few clinical chronic prostatitis is caused by trichomonad or mould, or by neisseria gonorrhoeae, mycoplasma, or chlamydia, which is namely referred to clinical specificity prostatitis. For these factors of infection, they are contagious to some degree in the early stages of the disease.
Through testing, if you have bacterial prostatitis, then your wife should also have some tests to see if she is infected. If she is infected, you both should take the pills.
During sex, if you have been wearing condoms, the chance of being transmitted is quite low. So if you are not sure what kind of prostatitis you have, you should wear condoms every time until your prostatitis is cured completely. More questions are welcome.
