My doc diagnosed me with bacterial prostatitis about a week and a half ago and gave me a 6-week course of Trimethoprim. Here's a brief history!

Diagnosed with gonorrhea 9 weeks ago (1 week after encounter). Given 250mg IM Ceftriaxone and 1000mg Zithromax. Started experiencing slight pain in my testicle 3 weeks after treatment. Had 3 separate urine amplification tests for gonorrhea/chlamydia and all were negative. Had a full STD panel at 7 weeks and everything was negative. Went to doc last week, and he said he found infection in my prostate fluid (my urine was clean). He did not do a culture of the bacteria and said it's most likely gonorrhea, without evaluating it further.

Does bacterial prostatitis cause infertility in men? I am concerned about this as I am only 26 years old.

  • It is impossible to diagnose bacterial infection without tests. Prostatitis is not easily diagnosed or classified (check for details ).Bacterial prostatitis means you have an infection of your prostate gland. A urine test will usually detect bacteria in acute prostatitis. The urine test finds which bacterium is causing the infection, and the best antibiotic to treat it. In a urine culture, the bacteria are allowed to grow so they can be identified and tested for their resistance to different types of antimicrobials. To confirm the prostate infection, the doctor may obtain two urine samples - before and after prostate massage. Nonbacterial prostatitis is an inflamed prostate without bacterial infection.The bacterial prostatitis is treated with antibiotics. The most effective medications are fluoroquinolones (ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin) and TMP-SMZ (trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole). Antibiotics are continued for at least three to four weeks, although a longer course is sometimes necessary.

  • Hello I have been to 3 family doctors and 2 Urologists and have still not got to the bottom of what is ailing me.Let me just start by saying I am a 33 year old married male with no history of health problems.Today the date is October 17/2008.At the end of May I started having pain in my left testicle. Over the next 2 months I was seen by 3 more doctors with similar issues and diagnosed with epididymitis and prescribed various doses of Cipro(10 days), Apo-Cephalexin (3 weeks) and Apo-oflox(1 week).Then the pain spread to my left testicle and eventually I started feeling a lot of pressure on my prostate. I had an ultrasound of the testicles that showed apparently no problems. I saw two Urologists, the first thought it could be a varicocele then changed his mind and thought it was prostatitis. My prostate was 'boggy' and very sore when digitally examined. There were no other side effects other than the pain, pressure and sore testicles in the spermatic cord/epididymis area.I was prescribed 6 weeks of vibra-tabs(doxycycline hyclate) At the end of 6 weeks the symptoms had not changed. One urologist has scheduled me for a cystascope to see if there is a narrow urethra causing it and the other urologist has scheduled me for a bladder ultrasound, transrectal and prostate at the same time. They both seem to be approaching it differently but believe it is prostatitis.Unfortunately our medical system is so busy that it may be several weeks to two months for these tests. I am desperately trying to get the moved up.I feel like I need to urinate badly sometimes, it is very uncomfortable to sit, the prostate feels sore and I get pain sensations down my legs. My testicles also feel sore up to the base of my penis. After ejaculation/sex sometimes the spermatic cord can feel sore for a day.I have tried all sorts of things such as Saw Palemetto, pumpkin seed oil, flax seed oil and a few pollen type pills that say they help non bacterial prostatitis.Would any of you have any insight that may help me as I am at a total loss and the pain is putting such a stress on my life and marriage. I am also worried about fertility Thank you

  • A prostatitis patient recovered experience-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I was ever been a prostatitis patient for seven years . The prostate expand and pain sharply. My waist pain, dizzy and weak. I had seen many famous doctors in china , had used the microwave, infrared ray scan, acupoint injection , squeeze medicine into anus to cure the disease. But I failed. I had taken many kinds of Chinese herb medicine secret recipe and used many kinds of specific medicine that advertised Chinese medicine from one Chinese prostate hospital medicine every day, it only can relieve my pain ,I wasn't cured. Recently ,I visited a famous prostate disease research institute. (They said that the cure rate is 85%. ) I was aroused by their method. And I used new cured plan which I synthesized seven years experience. By this way ,I was recovered only in one month .All the symptom disappear, and the prostate secretion test wasn't found bacteria. The whole body felt relaxed ,the idea of committing suicide all gone. And I felt the life is so beautiful and valuable. It is said that a prolonged illness makes a doctor of patient. When you have this illness, you can learn from experience, and choose the best cured way. Absorb the good points of the every doctors ,and create the new way. As a recovered patient, I know the pain of prostatitis patient deeply. So I like to share my experience with the cyber acquaintance.My cure method include seven parts. (It is specialize in chronic prostatitis. The acute prostatitis is very easy to cure, if you eat portalaca olerrcea for ten some days continuously, you can recover.)  The picture of portalaca olerrceaPoint and whole synthetical balance treatment 1. Eat four kinds of nature product every day . Bee honey, royal jelly, bee pollen and propolis. Building up your health, increasing sexual activity and enhancing immunity ,etc. Increasing the content of zinc element in prostate. I can guide you how to use them together. 2. Use Chinese medicine powder ( involve scolopendra subspinipes mutilans, phellodendron, Chinese schneid, elaphe moellendorffi,etc) Ten kinds of ingredient powder mix a kinds of special vinegar product , external use to cover two acupoints that connect everyday. Prostatitis is so difficult to cure because eating medicine is very difficult permeate prostate. The medicine consistency can’t last for a long time. External use covering acupoints can effect the prostate all the time and maintained high consistency. 3. Take a Chinese herb medicine prescription everyday . This prescription can attack prostate and kill the germ in urinary organ. But the medicine will not sap your vitality. There isn’t side effect. I can provide this prescription. 4. Boil some Chinese medicine , pour into a basin, and sit on the basin’ s medical water for ten minutes before bath every day. So the medicine can kill germ in urethra and scrotum, effect to prostate directly. The medicine won’t be absorbed by intestines and stomach. There is no side effect. I can provide the prescription. 5. Practise Qi Gong (a system of deep breathing exercise) I can guide you to practise . Stimulate the circulation of the blood and cause the muscles and joints to relax. Increase immunity, impact the focus. This kinds of Qi Gong is very safe and there is no deviation. But you can’t practise other kinds of QiGong freely , because some kinds of Qi Gong aren’t corresponding to prostatitis. 6.Use K-01 prostate rehabilitator for half an hour when you go to bed every day . K–01 prostate rehabilitator is a help-yourself physiotherapy apparatus which cures BPH . Employing the alternative operation of the high frequency non-thermal effect and magnetic kick. It serves to diminish inflammation, relieve pain, destroy harmful microorganisms, improve local micro-blood circulation and is very effective in curing frequent micuition, urgency of urination, painful urinary stuttering , and dysuria caused by prostatitis. It only need to put it on perineum. 7. No smoking (If you can't stop, try not to smoke so much ). Stop drinking, stop piquancy foods (such as capsicum ,ginger ,garlic, pepper ,etc) , stop eating fried foods, bacon, and flame broiled meat.( because the temperature is about 300 celsius degree, so the protein had been denaturalization , the protein had been hot. If you cook it by water , the temperature will not exceed 100 celsius degree. If you use the micro-wave oven to cook the meat, the temperature will exceed 100 celsius degree too, so it is hot.) Stop eating chanticleer, dog, pig's knuckle, donkey, tortoise ,cow, sheep, ginseng, pilose antler, Equus asinus L,longan,lichee , bamboo shoot,onion,mushroom( mushroom kinds of food will cause prostate swell),areca and all the sea and river animal ( such as fish, tortoise, shrimp, crab, etc). Stop eating all the hot chinese medicine. After you recover, you have to continue to stop eating these food for 3 months, in order to solidify. This is the whole body treatmnet, regard the whole body 's the former feminine and negative, don't eat the food that make against prostatitis recovered. The foods that I suggest you eating is : (1) You can eat meat involve the pig's muscle, heart, kidney, lung, tongue, stomach, the duck, the chicken and hen, egg, the quail, the pigeon, the snake, the cat, milk, animal blood (after boiling). (2)Vegetable: except the leek, the cushaw , the onion , the aubergine ,the bamboo shoot and the garlic , you can eat all the others vegetable.(3) Fruit: except the lichee, the longan, the mango, the durian and the tree pineapple, you can eat all the others fruit.(4)All the corn and the legume foods can be eated. Such as cereals, rice, potato, pasta, sugar and tea can be eaten. But the coffee and chocolate is a little hot.The sea animals can't be eated, but the sea plants can be eated, such as the kelp and the laver can be eated.(5)Bread in particular is cooked at a high temperature by baking, but the bread primary ingredient is amylum , amylum is not easy to change into hot food in high temperature, and the protein is easy change into to hot food in high temperature. If the bread is not very burnt, so you can eat the bread. If the bread is very burnt (such as it it had been black), it will be hot food too. (6) Do some cooking method: when you cook rice, pork, etc, you have to pour water to boil, the water is boil at 100 celsius degree, the temperature won't above 100 celsius degree. If you boil with heavy-fisted boiler, there are so much water in it, although the temperature is above 100 degree, the protein will not change its quality. Protein is easy be burnt in high and dry condition, if the meat turn black and yellow , it must be hot food, such as barbecue chicken. If you stir-fry the pork by plant oil, because the oil is under the pork, the oil can suffer very high temperature and won't change its quality, so the oil protect the pork not to change its quality. Such as you can stir-fry the vegetable with peanut butter . You can make a stew with chicken ,rice and vegetables . The oil can suffer very high temperature and never change it's quality, the amylum take second place suffer temperature, such as you can eat the hamburger (the bread main component is amylum), but if the bread had been baked to black, it will be hot food too. And the protein can't suffer high temperature without water, such as you bake the chicken , the protein is easy change its quality. Peanut oil , olive oil ,canola oil, soybean oil, palm fruit, can be eaten with do some cooking. The treatment of prostatitis is a difficult problem, in the world .If the patient can do the seven part that I summarized and undergone experience in seven years, the patient can recover in one or two months. The modern science can fly to space, array gene, but can’t deal with prostatitis. There is a strong membrance wrap up prostate. If the germ infect it ,it is a garden of eden for germ. All the antibiotic can’t kill germ in prostate thoroughly. And the germ is easy to resistant antibiotic. With the science develop, suppose the patient can be freezing to –10 degree for some days , and rise the temperature to bring back the patient to life. The germ had been killed by the low temperature. So it can cure the prostatitis quickly. But now , the prostatitis patients have to use the seven part of Chinese medicine “point and whole symthetical balance treatment” to cure . I think, except the patient who have other serious disease and suffer from general debility, every body can recover . Others BPH (Benign Enlargement of the Prostate) is easier to cure. You can according to the “point and whole synthetical balance treatment”. There is no side effect in the way . I am an English teacher in Gao Zhou Normal College of China . So it is very convenient for me communicate with you in English. If you need help and more detail, you can send an E-mail to me , drop me a line , or telephone me.

  • Prostatitis accounts for approximately 2 million annual visits. Twenty-five percent of all men evaluated for urologic problems in the United States are estimated to have symptoms of prostatitis. Approximately 50% of men experience symptoms of prostatitis at some time in their life. However, less than 5-10% of men with symptoms of prostatitis have bacterial prostatitis. Evaluation for these symptoms makes up approximately 8% of all urology visits. Prostatitis treatments vary depending on the type of disease: Acute and chronic bacterial prostatitisAcute bacterial prostatitis is treated with antibiotics. If you have severe symptoms, you may be hospitalized to receive injections of the drug. After your condition has improved, you will continue with oral antibiotics. The total course of treatment is usually two to four weeks. You should take all of the prescribed drugs as directed even if you're feeling better.

  • Eastern Essentials Fertility Formula is a powerful herbal infertility treatment designed to strengthen a women’s reproductive potential and increase fertility. The Chinese herbs used in our Fertility Formula are well known for being very strong in their abilities to enhance fertility and to help create the proper environment necessary for an adequate conception in order for a woman to get pregnant. The ovaries need to produce healthy eggs, and once the egg is fertilized, it must be able to implant and then stick to the lining of the womb. By strengthening and supporting the women’s entire reproductive system, the goal is for our herbalinfertility remedy to greatly assist in this entire process. Unless there is a structural problem, or a serous blockage such as blocked fallopian tubes, women age 40 and under in robust and vibrant health, should be able to get pregnant. That is why our Fertility Formula not only is specifically designed to increase the chances of conceiving, but it also seeks to improve a woman’s health overall. The good news is that there are many Chinese herbs for fertility and for womens health that millions of women have used with great success.
