Seminal vesiculitis is one of the common infectious diseases in males. The age of onset is mostly 20~40 years old. It can be divided into acute and chronic seminal vesiculitis, among which the chronic one is more common.

Acute seminal vesiculitis is mainly caused by bacterial infection, with blood essence, sometimes accompanied by ejaculation pain, fever, aversion to cold, and perineal pain. And the pain can radiate to the groin and testis. Chronic seminal vesiculitis can be secondary to chronic prostatitis. Escherichia coli is the most common bacteria, followed by Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, and other diphtheria-like bacteria.

Recently, many male patients have consulted online about whether seminal vesiculitis will affect male fertility. For the disease, I believe many male friends don't know it very well. If there is a problem with this reproduction organ, it will directly affect the quality of male sperm. In severe case, if it is not treated in time, it will also lead to male infertility.

As we all know, semen is the fertility material of men, and the sperm inside is the messenger of fertility. In addition to sperm, seminal plasma components also have a decisive impact on fertility. And seminal plasma is mainly secreted by the seminal vesicle and prostate. In this way, if there are lesions in the prostate and seminal vesicle, it is undoubtedly closely related to the quality of fertility.

How does seminal vesiculitis affect male fertility?

1. With the further deterioration of seminal vesiculitis, the pH of semen will be reduced, which is not conducive to the average growth and development of semen: the pH of normal seminal plasma is 7.2-8.9, which is good at moving freely in this environment. In the disease occurs, the acid will increase and cause sperm premature death, which will also affect the patient's fertility.

2. It will lead to changes in semen components, thus affecting the fertility of patients: seminal plasma should contain a certain amount of nutrients to support and help refined activities and trace acids such as lactic acid. Especially when it is accompanied by prostatic inflammation, bacteria will be mixed in the seminal plasma, and lactic acid substances will also strengthen the toxin of oral bacteria. And metabolites are also excreted in the seminal plasma, and bacteria will swallow the nutrients in the seminal plasma and rob oxygen, which will undoubtedly reduce patients' fertility.

3. Seminal vesiculitis increases semen viscosity and abnormal liquefaction, which will also affect the fertility of patients: when suffering from prostatitis and seminal vesiculitis, there are bacteria, a large number of leukocytes, and even pus in seminal plasma. The viscosity will increase suddenly, which is easy to cause that semen is not easy to liquefy. The activity rate of refined energy will decrease, which is related to the decrease of liquefying enzymes.

Through the above introduction, men should now understand the impact of seminal vesiculitis on male fertility. According to experts, this disease can easily lead to rapid deterioration if it is not treated timely and effectively. More seriously, it will also affect a series of urogenital organs near the seminal vesicle, resulting in a series of other urogenital inflammation and infection diseases, which will endanger the reproductive health of patients and endanger their reproductive health.

Seminal vesiculitis, especially when it is in a chronic stage and combined with chronic prostatitis, is challenging to treat.

1. Selection of antibiotics: acute seminal vesiculitis should be treated until the symptoms disappear entirely, and then continue to use drugs for 1 ~ 2 weeks. Chronic seminal vesiculitis needs to be treated for more than four weeks to consolidate the curative effect. Generally speaking, the application effect of cephalosporins combined with quinolones is good. The alternative drugs are roxithromycin and doxycycline.

2. Traditional Chinese medicine treatment: Traditional Chinese medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill is a good choice. It can eliminate symptoms and make men have a normal life. It is especially suitable for chronic seminal vesiculitis or symptoms come back after treatment. And it can also treat chronic prostatitis and other urogenital diseases without side effects.

3. Abstinence: avoid excessive sexual intercourse and let the prostate and seminal vesicles rest. It's best to prohibit sex in the first month, especially in the acute stage. You can have sex generally in the future. However, avoid over frequency to reduce the degree of sexual organ congestion.

4. Rectal microwave can treat chronic seminal vesiculitis, which can promote local blood circulation and inflammatory absorption, especially for those with obvious pain symptoms.

5. When performing a seminal vesicle endoscopy, it shows small stones, chronic inflammation, and edema in some patients.
