The etiology of prostatitis is complex, leading to treatment has become more complicated, and it is easy to relapse. If men can detect prostatitis formation as soon as possible, they can treat it. When you don't have time to go to the hospital for an examination, you can do a simple self-test for yourself first.

The following simple self-test method is based on prostatitis's general symptoms to make the measurement, so it is more accurate. When you get the result that you have prostatitis, you must go to the hospital to do a more precise, scientific examination to recognize your condition, early treatment.

The seven self-test criteria for prostatitis were as follows:

1. How often do you feel that your bladder is not empty after urination in the last month?
2. How often do you have to urinate again within 2 hours?
3. How often do you stop urinating?
4. How often do you find it difficult to delay your urination?
5. How often do you feel weak urine flow?
6. How often do you have to urinate by pressing or pulling tightly in the last month?
7. How many times do you usually get up between going to bed at night and getting up the next morning?

The subjects can determine the score from "0" to "5" according to "never", "once", "twice", "three times", "four times" and "five times".

Experts said that 0-7 points for mild symptoms, 8-19 points for moderate symptoms, 20-35 points for severe symptoms. It is generally believed that mild symptoms only need follow-up, while moderate signs and severe symptoms need drug treatment and surgery, respectively. However, if any of the seven questions score more than 3, appropriate therapy should be considered even if the total score is not high.

If the patient is due to bacterial infection caused by prostatitis, it is recommended to use antibiotics for treatment. If the patient has nonbacterial prostatitis, accounting for 90-95%, it is recommended to take herbal medicine, such as Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill, to get a better effect.
