Prostatitis is a common disease in daily life, and it affects patients greatly. In daily life, men always need a full understanding of this disease. Therefore, there are some "misunderstandings" about prostatitis, which will also influence people. Thus, people must know more about it. So the following is a specific introduction to whether increased prostate fluid is a sign of prostatitis.


First, we need to understand what is increased prostatic fluid.


The causes of increased secretion of the prostatic fluid may be pathological or physiological. If there is sexual stimulation, the prostatic fluid will flow from the prostate, which is normal. It is difficult to quantify the secretion of the prostatic fluid. Some people often think that their secretion is too much. Most of the cases belong to common physiological phenomena.


However, there are also abnormal increases of the prostatic fluid, such as prostatic inflammation, especially accompanied by some irritating symptoms, such as urethral pruritus, urination pain, decreased force of urination, dysuria, and increased urethral secretion.


Secondly, we need to know what prostatitis is. What are the causes of prostatitis? 


Prostatitis is a common male disease. According to the data, half of the men may develop symptoms of prostatitis in life. 


Prostatitis is related to pathogen infections. There are more acute and chronic bacterial prostatitis patients. Bacterial substances can be detected in the prostates of such patients. Therefore, pathogen infections are the primary cause of prostatitis.

However, the causes and pathogenesis of non-bacterial prostatitis are complex, possibly related to immune abnormalities, histopathological changes, urine reflux, neuroendocrine abnormalities, and other factors.


Many people think that they have prostatitis when the prostatic fluid increase. Is that reasonable? Generally speaking, the production of prostatic fluid varies from person to person, some people have more prostatic fluid, and some people have less. 

Thus, what are the causes of the increase in prostatic fluid?


The prostatic fluid increase is associated with prostatitis. When swelling and congestion occur in the prostates of young and middle-aged, bacterial or non-bacterial inflammation will easily happen. Inflammation occurs when the prostate is swollen, and fluid is pushed out of the swollen tissue, resulting in excess or bleached prostate fluid. 

In addition, the increase in a prostatic fluid is associated with the following conditions:


First, the inexistence of sex life or ejaculation will cause a large amount of ejaculated semen, with the prostatic fluid accounting for more than 95% of the semen. If the patient does not eject semen for a long time, he will easily defecate or urinate in the morning, resulting in bleached prostate fluid, which can be considered excessive prostatic fluid;


Secondly, increased prostatic fluid is related to androgens. Androgens send instructions to the prostate to produce more prostatic fluid through the neuroendocrine pathway. The prostate has a large amount of prostatic fluid after receiving the neuroendocrine signal, resulting in excessive prostatic fluid.


However, other factors affecting the secretion of prostate fluid and dietary factors, such as drinking and eating chili, will also stimulate the increase of prostate secretion.


Therefore, the increased prostatic fluid does not mean people will have prostatitis. We do not need to worry too much. However, if the condition is severe, associated personnel should seek medical advice before the examination. It is believed that people will have a certain understanding of their physical health.


It can be known from the above introduction that if there is an increased secretion of the prostatic fluid caused by prostatitis, the related patient needs to undergo examination and treatment. 


The severity of prostatitis can be assessed by prostatitis examination and routine urine examination. Treatment can be received under the guidance of the doctor. Standard treatment is taking broad-spectrum antibiotics orally, such as alpha-blockers. Representative drugs are Roxithromycin, Azithromycin, Tamsulosin, etc. 

Moreover, men can seek herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill to eliminate symptoms and causes to achieve a cure. 


Besides, people need to pay more attention to related factors in life. They need to drink more water and urinate timely. What else needs to do is to avoid sitting for a long time, staying up late, eating spicy and irritative food, drinking too much liquor, etc., for timely prevention.
