Is Seminal Vesiculitis Contagious for Sexual Partner?

In recent years, the incidence of male diseases has been increasing. Seminal vesiculitis is a prevalent disease with a high incidence rate among male disorders. Although seminal vesiculitis is not a very serious disease, it can have a massive impact on the patient's life once it occurs. Seminal vesiculitis is an inflammation. Many patients, especially couples, are more concerned about whether seminal vesiculitis is contagious. Today we will find out whether this disease is infectious or not.

The cause of seminal vesiculitis may be excessive sexual activity in a short period of time, causing aseptic inflammation of the seminal vesicles after extreme congestion. Some patients also have seminal vesiculitis caused by retrograde infection because of bacterial prostatitis and other urinary tract infections. If the case is the former, the sex partner may not get infected by any disease. If it is the latter, bacterial infection, during sexual life, the semen in the seminal vesicle enters the female body, which may cause the female to have corresponding infections. 
It is contagious if the seminal vesiculitis is caused by sexually transmitted diseases, such as gonorrhea, mycoplasma, chlamydia, and other pathogenic microorganisms. If other common bacteria cause it, seminal vesiculitis is generally less contagious.
If the male has lower abdominal pain, pubic pain, perineal discomfort, the pain symptoms are evident during ejaculation, urgency and pain during urination; hemospermia; fever, and chills. The patient should go to the hospital in time, as these are symptoms of seminal vesiculitis. Further examination should be carried out under the guidance of a doctor to avoid making the sexual partner be infected by the bacteria of seminal vesiculitis during sexual life, causing corresponding infections.
The diagnosis of seminal vesiculitis is as follows. 
First, a bacterial culture is performed. Semen cytology or bacterial culture alone, even if positive, does not confirm the diagnosis of seminal vesiculitis. However, if a man's prostate massage culture is sterile and there are many bacteria in the semen, or if it is different from the bacteria in the prostate, then the diagnosis of bacterial vesiculitis can be made initially. 
A seminal vesicle contract imaging can then be performed. At present, it is mainly through the direct puncture of the vas deferens through the skin of the scrotum for seminal angiography to identify whether there is seminal vesiculitis. Generally, the standard value of refined fructose is 0.87-3.95 g/L, and long-term chronic seminal vesiculitis can cause the fructose content to decrease. 
In urethroscopy, inflammatory changes in the vesicle can be seen, and sometimes the surface is granular and granuloma-like hyperplasia, and purulent or bloody secretions can be seen flowing out. Then the transrectal ultrasonography can be conducted. In patients with a short course of the disease, the seminal vesicles were enlarged and fusiform, and the distal end was elliptical, with rough and thickened walls. In contrast, the seminal vesicles were shrunk in those with a longer course of the disease.
Men diagnosed with seminal vesiculitis should avoid sex. 
On the one hand, the bacteria of seminal vesiculitis will be transmitted to women, causing corresponding infections in women. Sexual life in the acute or onset period of seminal vesiculitis may also spread inflammation, causing the partner to develop inflammatory diseases, such as gynecological diseases. 
On the other hand, because seminal vesiculitis is sexually active during the onset period, the patient's symptoms may be aggravated, resulting in deterioration of the patient's condition. Because the genitals will be congested during sex, it will easily lead to the spread of inflammation, and the patient's condition will be worse.
