Bacteria found in the large intestine can lead to prostate infection. If the bacteria are left untreated, they will begin to spread and find their way to the prostate through a passage called the prostatic ducts. A patient will begin to feel chills, body aches and pain while urinating. 

Unclean sexual life or unprotected intercourse could possibly cause urethritis. The pathogenic micro-organisms of urethritis are mainly bacteria, viruses, mycoplasma, and chlamydia etc.. If urethritis is not timely cured, the prostate gland would be infected by the pathogen, which could possibly cause bacterial prostatitis.
