Untreated prostatitis  will develop into chronic, which will be more difficult to cure. The inflammation will last for more than three months and patients will suffer from a series of unbearable symptoms. Except that, it can also induce other complications:

Acute (sudden) urinary retention. Because it may be so painful to pass urine, urine can build up in your bladder, causing pain in your lower abdomen and inability to pass urine at all. 
Prostate abscess. If the antibiotics do not effectively treat the prostate infection, rarely you can develop an abscess of your prostate gland. Your doctor may suspect this if your symptoms do not improve despite antibiotic treatment.
Untreated prostatitis affects men differently, with varying degrees of discomfort or pain. And could not only bring burning urination, difficulty urinating, painful defecation and ejaculation to you, but also associated with epididymitis and orchitis.  

If diagnosed with prostatitis, don't hasitate to get a treatment. Otherwise, the complications will severely affect the reproductive system and lead to infertility.
