Chronic prostatitis will bring great trouble to men, so they should pay attention to it. Understand some common mistakes during the treatment to avoid affecting the examination results and getting severe complications.

What are the common mistakes of chronic prostatitis?

1. Chronic prostatitis must use antibiotics to be effective

Most patients think that the persistence of chronic prostatitis is caused by inflammation, so the use of antibiotics is effective. But in fact, patients should take a systematic approach instead of antibiotics alone during the treatment. Chronic prostatitis is divided into two kinds: nonbacterial and bacterial. Antibiotics can help patients get effective improvements for bacterial disease. However, they can not treat nonbacterial disease effectively.

Therefore, patients need to do a routine examination of prostate fluid to determine the pathogenic bacteria and then targeted treatment. Generally, people with bacterial disease can receive antibiotics treatmnet for six to 8 weeks to improve symptoms. If it is nonbacterial disease, herbal medicine treatment has a relatively obvious effect, commonly used is Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill. It has the effect of diuresis, blood circulation, blood stasis, heat clearing, and detoxification. The treatment of traditional Chinese medicine dialectically is good for treating prostatitis and other male reproductive system diseases.

2. Prostatitis is a venereal disease

Prostatitis is one of the most common inflammatory diseases. But because it is related to the reproductive system, many people will classify it as a sexually transmitted disease. Chronic prostatitis and sexually transmitted diseases are related, and some sexually transmitted diseases can cause prostatitis. But it does not mean that prostatitis is a sexually transmitted disease.

Because some patients will not have sexually transmitted diseases and prostatitis simultaneously, just simple prostatitis, do not blindly think that prostatitis is a sexually transmitted disease. Therefore, do not dare to tell the doctor about the situation to avoid delayed treatment.

3. Chronic prostatitis is contagious

Many men think that prostatitis is an infectious disease, so they dare not have sex after infection, afraid of infecting their partner. Whether it is infectious is determined by the cause. Generally speaking, if it is caused by Mycoplasma, chlamydia, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, tuberculosis, fungi, trichomonads, and other infections, there is a certain degree of infectious.

But in fact, most patients in the clinic can not find pathogenic bacteria during a check. That is to say, it is not bacterial prostatitis, so there is no infectious, sexual life that will not be transmitted to women. And some patients with appropriate sex life are conducive to prostatic fluid excretion and can assist in treating disease.

4. Chronic prostatitis can lead to Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)

Many men think that chronic prostatitis will lead to benign prostatic hyperplasia if they can not receive treatment in time. It is actually a misconception. Chronic prostatitis and benign prostatic hyperplasia are two different diseases, and there is no correlation between them. So don't put too much pressure on yourself in the treatment, and don't always think that it will lead to benign prostatic hyperplasia, afraid of other problems in the prostate, leading to more severe diseases.
