Research shows that the incidence rate of prostate diseases in male subjects is very high among young and middle-aged men, accounting for 35% to 45%. Prostate diseases attack over 52% of men's lives at a particular stage of life. Chronic prostatitis patients can account for more than half of the outpatients.

At present, andrology has become the third significant male health "killer" after tumor and cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, one of the common andrology diseases. However, there are many biases in people's understanding of Andrology itself and treatment.

Due to the lack of medical knowledge and blind obedience to the advertisements, many people have a wrong understanding of the disease and think it is a complicated and severe disease. In the outpatient department, patients have apparent mental pressure when they first come to see a doctor. They are nervous, anxious, and suspicious when they feel uncomfortable.

The incidence rate of chronic prostatitis is very high. Like a cold, male friends of all ages may encounter. As long as you receive regular treatment and follow the doctor's advice, you can completely recover. According to each person's different situation, choose other treatment methods.

When there are some symptoms affecting life and work, such as frequent urination, urination pain, and urination pain, patients need active treatment. For chronic prostatitis, the main goal of treatment is to relieve pain, improve urination symptoms, and improve life quality.

If it is clear that pathogenic bacteria cause prostatitis, take effective antibiotic treatment. If it is nonbacterial prostatitis or repeated symptoms after antibiotic treatment, choose herbal medicine treatment, such as Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill. Simultaneously, if accompanied by sexual dysfunction, men also need to cooperate with psychological and behavioral counseling, life and eating habits change, and other comprehensive treatment.

For patients whose symptoms are not particularly serious and have little impact on their quality of life, it is unnecessary to use particular medication and pay attention to their life and work habits.

Chronic prostatitis is not the same as sexual dysfunction.

Although pathologically, pelvic muscle lesions caused by chronic prostatitis may affect the sexual function and life in a certain stage, it has no direct relationship with the "sexual dysfunction" or even "infertility" advertised in some irresponsible advertisements. So patients and their families do not have to bear the heavy psychological burdens.

During the treatment period, the doctor may suggest that the patient reduce the number of sexual life appropriately because excessive sexual life can cause prostatic congestion, aggravate chronic prostatitis, which is not conducive to rehabilitation. Some patients are very pessimistic, think that the disease must be abstinent, and even worry that the disease will lead to marriage problems and the relationship between husband and wife. Regular sex life and normal mental state are conducive to the treatment of chronic prostatitis.

Can chronic prostatitis cause sexual dysfunction?

Generally speaking, chronic prostatitis will not directly affect sexual function. Theoretically speaking, chronic prostatitis does not directly damage the neurovascular function of penile erection and will not cause impotence.
But because of the long-term lumbosacral and perineal discomfort, patients often have psychological pressure, resulting in depression and worry, especially for those who do not know little about the disease and often worry about their sexual function problems. Over time the mental factors can reduce the patient's libido, and functional dysfunction appear.

Some young patients worry that chronic prostatitis may lead to infertility. About one-third of prostatic fluid comes from semen, which affects the quantity and composition of semen, and may interfere with the survival and activity of sperm. But clinical data show that most patients with chronic prostatitis have normal fertility. It is worth noting that the mental burden caused by patients' attention to the disease and anxiety often affects the quality of sexual life more than the disease itself.
