As a reproductive disease, prostatitis has become more and more popular all over the world. While many men are confused by prostatitis in the daily life, the causes are becoming the focus. Of course, Prostatitis can be caused by many things. And there are a lot of people doubting genital herpes can cause prostatitis. Dr. Lee explains it is true that genital herpes do cause prostatitis.

As a sexually transmitted disease, genital herpes (often shortened to herpes) is caused by the herpes simplex virus and characterized by genital or rectal blisters. But many people never realize they have herpes at all. Like most sexually transmitted diseases, it can be spread through sexual contact with those already infected. 
Prostatitis is often described as an infection of the is the inflammation and swelling of the prostate gland, a walnut-sized gland that sits at the beginning of the urethra in men. Prostatitis can affect men of all ages. According to the National Institutes of Health, prostatitis may account for up to 25% of all office visits for complaints involving the genital and urinary systems from young and middle-aged men. The symptoms include frequent urge to urinate, difficulty urinating, pain or burning during urination, chills and fever etc.
According to the research, prostatitis can be caused by the herpes simplex virus. Herpes causes inflamed blisters on the genitals and the rectum. When these blisters are opened, the herpes simplex virus often can be found in the fluid that leaks out. Then the virus spreads from open blisters in the rectum and infects the prostate gland, which can be reached through the anus.
After diagnosis as prostatitis, patients have to take the suitable treatments like antibiotics and the traditional Chinese herbal medicines. However, it is not a good idea to take antibiotics for a long time because of its resistance to drugs. For chronic prostatitis, Chinese herbal medicine diuretic anti-inflammatory pill, which is made from the pure natural herbs, has the remarkable effect that can cure the disease once and for all without any side effect.
Attention: you have to take those treatments under your health-care provider’s instruction.  He or she will advise you to inform your past, current and future sexual partners of your disease and practice safe sex with all sexual partners to avoid transmission of herpes.
