Chronic prostatitis is a common and serious chronic disease affecting the quality of life in patients. The incidence rate is approximately 2% to 16%. About 50% of male patients have had chronic prostatitis symptoms. Their main manifestations are voiding dysfunction and often chronic pelvic pain or discomfort, which seriously affects the quality of life.

The effect of chronic prostatitis on semen quality has always been controversial. It has been found that chronic prostatitis / chronic pelvic pain syndrome can increase semen quantity, prolong liquefaction time and decrease sperm activity rate, while the severity of symptoms has nothing to do with semen quantity, liquefaction time, and sperm motility.

Another important effect of chronic prostatitis on man's health is their psychological status. Some studies have shown that chronic prostatitis is closely related to psychological factors. About 60% of the patients have anxiety symptoms, and more than half of the patients have depression symptoms. With the course of the disease, anxiety and tension increase, while physical condition and social ability weaken.

Psychological abnormality is positively related to the severity of prostatitis symptoms, which may be due to the long course of chronic prostatitis, repeated attacks, long-term cure, and various pressures, which make the patients lose the confidence to cure and produce a series of negative effects. At the same time, due to the lack of timely and effective diagnosis and treatment, the symptoms are aggravated, which may promote each other and cause and effect each other.

Erectile dysfunction can be divided into organic and psychological types. The survey showed that 49% of patients chronic prostatitis had decreased sexual function, nearly 50% showed erectile dysfunction, about 60% of them were mild erectile dysfunction, and the incidence rate increased with age and duration. It is found that the incidence of erectile dysfunction in this group was about 20%.

The occurrence of erectile dysfunction may be related to psychological dysfunction or local pain caused by prostatitis. With the transformation of the modern medical model from the biomedical model to the social-psychological, biomedical model, social-psychological factors have gradually become important pathogenic factors. The main effects of chronic prostatitis on male health are psychological effects, sexual dysfunction, and semen.

Chronic prostatitis has no obvious effect on man's health, so it can be considered as a symptomatic disease. Therefore, when patients use analgesics, drugs that improve symptoms, physical and mental state and other drugs, such as the natural therapy medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill, they should also pay more attention to psychological counseling and other comprehensive treatment.
