Prostatitis is a common disease in the genitourinary system, which can be divided into acute and chronic types. Generally speaking, the symptoms of prostatitis include urinary frequency and urgency, burning when urinating, pain in the pelvis and genital area. Patients should attach importance to the disease and get treated in time.
Sexual function is a male concern. So can prostatitis lead to sexual dysfunction?
In fact, prostatitis, if left untreated, is sure to cause sexual dysfunction in men. The bacteria in the prostate gland can go up and affect the reproductive system, causing male reproductive system diseases, impotence and premature ejaculation, and most seriously, infertility. 
Long-term chronic inflammation changes the composition of prostatic fluid, affects the secretion function of the prostate gland and the liquefaction time of semen, leading to the decline of sperm motility.
In addition, prostatitis caused by bacterial infection may bring in white blood cells, microorganisms and inflammatory factors in the patient's semen, which may damage the sperm, making it weak and deformed. Those damages will further lead to male infertility.
What you should also notice is that prostatitis can cause gynecological diseases as well. Prostatitis caused by bacterial infections, such as trichomonas and mold, can be passed on to females through sexual intercourse, causing female gynecological diseases.
Due to some adverse symptoms caused by prostatitis, patients will suffer from psychological depression, which may cause other psychological diseases and even complications. Patients' depression can also be torture for their family members, who will also feel uncomfortable and produce irritability. If prostatitis is not treated for a long time, the couple's life and family relationship will be seriously affected.
If you have prostatitis, don't be too worried and nervous. As long as you get timely treatment, your condition can be gradually improved.
In general, patients can take oral antibiotics for three weeks, and then consider whether to continue the medication based on their feedback. In addition, patients can take some drugs to supplement protein and trace elements like zinc and selenium, to enhance the sterilization and antibacterial ability of the prostate. The intake of zinc can help improve the quality and vitality of the sperm and enhance male fertility. 
In addition, TCM can treat prostatitis as well. Patients who hate the side effect of western medicine can consider some methods of TCM. Herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill is a good option, which has obvious bactericidal and anti-inflammatory properties. What's more, it will not produce drug resistance, and can be taken with western medicine simultaneously.
