John is just married. His wife is a middle school teacher, and he is also a civil servant. Many friends are very envious when they see them so loving. But recently, for some reason, the couple doesn't seem to be so harmonious. It turns out that John and his wife are always unsatisfactory when they have sex, and John frequently has spermatorrheas at night. With this question in mind, he comes to the hospital. 
The hospital does an experimental test based on his symptoms, and he is diagnosed with epididymitis. The two of them are very confused about this. Is it possible that frequent spermatorrhea is caused by epididymitis?

Yes, epididymitis can cause spermatorrhea.
After puberty, men instinctively generate sexual desire. Their mind, paying too much attention to sexual problems, is susceptible to sexual stimulation. They watch the sexual stimulation scenes in pornographic books or movies. It stimulates the brain and makes the cerebral cortex continue to be sexually excited so that it can cause natural spermatorrhea. Epididymitis causes frequent congestion of the genitals. 
The ejaculation center of the spinal cord is pathologically excited, resulting in frequent spermatorrhea. In addition to epididymitis, other genital inflammatory stimulation caused by the foreskin, such as foreskin balanitis, prostatitis, seminal vesiculitis, and urethritis, can also make the penis easy to erect and cause spermatorrhea. The spermatorrhea caused by genital inflammation is mostly pathological.
Epididymitis is a typical male reproductive system disease caused mainly by the spread of adjacent organs. It is manifested as sudden pain in the scrotum, swelling of the epididymis, apparent tenderness, and may be accompanied by fever, epididymal induration, etc. The epididymis is the site of sperm maturation and where sperm are stored. It has various physiological functions corresponding to sperm maturation and capacitation. 
Inflammation of the epididymis can affect the epididymis's function and change the epididymis's internal environment, thereby affecting the maturation of sperm and reducing its fertilization ability; inflammation can also cause blockage of the epididymal duct and affect the output of sperm, which can cause clinical infertility.
The Harm of Epididymitis
The harm of epididymitis is so severe that you should not ignore it.
(1)A large number of metabolites produced by the inflammatory reaction can also poison sperm, or change the living environment of sperm, reduce sperm motility, increase dead sperm, increase the rate of deformed sperm, and reduce sperm count.
(2) If epididymitis is caused by gonococcus, mycobacterium tuberculosis, mycoplasma, chlamydia, and other pathogens, it will not only cause inflammation and damage sperm but also easily cause the shrinkage or blockage of the epididymal lumen, resulting in the incomplete or complete obstruction between the tail of the epididymis and the vas deferens. It is an irreversible sequela of epididymitis. Sperm are blocked in the epididymal duct and cannot escape. They can only be slowly trapped or killed, resulting in obstructive oligospermia or azoospermia.
(3) Some pathogens (such as mycoplasma and chlamydia) are adsorbed on the surface of sperm, reducing their motility or even making them unable to move.
Epididymitis can be cured because epididymitis is a benign disease. Bacterial infection is a common pathogenic factor. Active application of antibiotics and anti-inflammatory in the early stage of illness can cure the disease. Cephalosporin antibiotics, quinolone antibiotics, and macrolide antibiotics can be used to fight infection. 
Generally, take the medication for two weeks, and the disease can be cured. However, some patients have long-term use of antibiotics, resulting in drug resistance, and the treatment effect is not good. They can now choose to take herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill. Its pure plant formula can gently and effectively kill pathogens causing epididymal infection, and long-term use will not cause drug resistance. If epididymitis is not treated in time and results in testicular necrosis, orchiectomy is the only choice.
