Male prostatitis is not a rare disease. Men at all stages will have prostatitis. This disease has brought great inconvenience to men after it happened. If not treated in time, it will lead to more severe conditions.

Can prostatitis reduce sperm count?

Studies have found that the prostate's prostatic fluid is one of the essential hormones for sperm activity. The inflammation in the prostate will affect the secretion of prostatic fluid and then affect sperm motility, leading to male infertility.

Besides, prostatitis will lead to bacteria in prostatic fluid. Bacteria will kill sperm in the semen, and sperm in the semen will lose vitality. Therefore, chronic bacterial prostatitis can lead to reduced semen count and low sperm motility, which means that chronic prostatitis is one of the male infertility causes.

The harm of prostatitis can not only lead to infertility.

Residual urine is a suitable medium for bacterial reproduction. The bladder mucosa's defense mechanism is damaged and then cause urinary tract infections, such as pyelonephritis. At this time, if the treatment is not complete, it will develop from pyelonephritis and hydronephrosis to nephritis and finally to uremia.
