Prostatitis is a common and frequent disease in adult men, with a higher prevalence in men under the age of 50. However, the prostatitis population is getting younger and younger. According to statistics, about 30%-40% of men aged 25-40 suffer from different degrees of prostatitis. In this case, many people will have this kind of doubt: Never had sex, how did I get prostatitis?

Prostatitis does have a close relationship with sex life. It is mainly caused by repeated congestion of the prostate; if men have sex too often, it is easy to make the prostate overly congested, affecting the venous return obstacle, and immunity will also decline. Coupled with the prolonged stay of bacteria in the local area, the chance of inflammation will be increased, so the excessive frequency of sexual life makes it easy to induce prostatitis.


So, how do men who haven't been sexually active get prostatitis?

Clinically, prostatitis is categorized into four types, each with a different cause. It may be related to bacterial infection, mental factors, immune factors, and poor lifestyle habits.

1. Acute Bacterial Prostatitis: It is mostly caused by pathogen infections, such as Escherichia coli, gonococcus, chlamydia, mycoplasma, and so on. Infection usually occurs through upward urethral infection, bloodstream infection, and reflux of urine through the prostatic duct.

2. Chronic Bacterial Prostatitis: It is also mainly caused by pathogen infection, but the main pathogens are Staphylococcus, Escherichia coli, Corynebacterium and Enterococcus. It is usually a long-term recurrent lower urinary tract infection, the pathogen through the urine reflux into the prostate gland caused by the infection. It can also be caused by acute bacterial prostatitis that has not been cured.

3. Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome: It is also called chronic non-bacterial prostatitis, the cause of which is still controversial and may be due to other microorganisms, such as Chlamydia trachomatis, trichomonas, fungi, viruses, and immunizations.

4. Asymptomatic prostatitis: This type may be related to the patient's psycho-psychological factors, immune abnormalities, and so on. The patient has no clinical manifestations, and the presence of the disease is often discovered when other diseases are examined.

In addition to this, not having sex all the time can also trigger prostatitis. The prostate is a male-specific organ, and its main function is to secrete prostate fluid on a regular basis, which is the main part of semen. If you have been abstaining from sex for a long time, you will not be able to discharge the prostate fluid, which will lead to prostatitis and other symptoms of urinary tract infections.

Prolonged abstinence can cause prostatitis, which can cause urinary symptoms such as frequent urination, urinary urgency, painful urination, and other urinary symptoms, but it also can cause male sexual dysfunction.

If the prostatitis caused is not treated in time, it will later have an effect on the mobility of sperm and cause male infertility. So prolonged abstinence is very bad for the prostate. When treating prostatitis, not only should medication be emphasized, but also regular sex life is required, neither too frequent nor too little.

Therefore, patients with prostatitis should be actively treated to avoid more serious consequences. Prostatitis has a variety of causes, which is the fundamental basis for patients to carry out treatment.

According to the patient's urine culture results, acute prostatitis can be treated with appropriate, sensitive antibiotics, including quinolones, cephalosporins, and macrolides. Patients can also apply alpha-blockers to relieve the symptoms of urinary discomfort. For chronic prostatitis, patients can choose traditional Chinese medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill for treatment. Its multiple herbal ingredients not only have the effect of sterilization and anti-inflammatory but also can penetrate the prostate membrane, and the drug effect directly to the lesion. So, it will eliminate the inflammation from the root and restore the normal function of the prostate.

To summarize, men have to transform their thinking not to think that prostatitis is only related to sex. In life, they should pay more attention to the causes of the disease and adjust in many aspects to effectively prevent the disease.
