Make an exam of the prostatic fluid. Under microscope, there are more than ten white blood cells in prostatic fluid, and lecithin corpuscle is reduced, and its PH value is beyond 6.8. 
2. Digital rectal examination

3. The culture of Chlamydia cells
The McCoy cells, Hela-229 cells and BHK cells are sensitive to Chlamydia trachomatis. Of them , the McCoy cells is most commonly used. Once the incubated McCoy cells are stained by monoclonal fluorescent antibody, the diagnosis of the disease would be quickly made out. The sensitivity of the culture is as high as 80% -90%. And once the chlamydia cultures are positive, the diagnosis of chlamydial prostatitis would be confirmed. 
Chlamydia is a very special kind of free-living bacteria. Chlamydia is unlike other bacteria or virus because it has no cell walls and therefore must live inside cells. Chlamydia is unlike viruses because it can live in cultures outside of cells and can be killed by certain antibiotics. However, chlamydia cannot be killed by most antibiotics, as most antibiotics work by damaging a bacteria's cell wall. Chlamydia can be killed by antibiotics such as the tetracyclines or erythromycins that do not act on a cell wall. 
As many patients with chlamydia infection couldn't be completely cured by Western medicine, they will become the carriers of chlamydia for life. Undoubtedly, their only hope to be cured is to turn to the treatment with traditional Chinese medicine for help.
