How to Self-Examine If Seminal Vesiculitis is Suspected?

Date:2023-08-15 click:0

Seminal vesiculitis is mainly caused by Proteus, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella aerogenes, Pseudomonas, etc. When the organs adjacent to the seminal vesicle, such as the prostate, posterior urethra and colon, are affected by any infections, or when any situation leading to congestion of the prostate or the seminal vesicle occurs, bacteria will take advantage of the opportunity to invade the seminal vesicle and induce seminal vesiculitis, causing trouble to the patients. 


Seminal vesiculitis is a common male disease with an onset age of 20–40. Its primary clinical manifestation is hemospermia. It harms male health and, in severe cases, even leads to male infertility.


If patients suspect that they have seminal vesiculitis, how should they do a self-examination?


If they want to check whether they have seminal vesiculitis on their own, in addition to going to the hospital for confirmation, they can also do a self-examination through the following methods:


1. See if the semen is red

The most obvious symptom of seminal vesiculitis is hemospermia. If patients, based on the observation of their semen, find that there are blood streaks in the semen or that the semen is red or pink, it means they are likely to have seminal vesiculitis. If the symptom of hemospermia persists, seminal vesiculitis is already in a severe state and needs prompt treatment.


2. Self-anal examination

Male patients can do an anal examination on their own. When checking, clean one of your fingers, and plug it slightly into the anus. If you feel extreme pain and can feel swelling pain in the prostate area, it means that there may be seminal vesiculitis.

3. Perineal pain

Patients with seminal vesiculitis will have pain in the perineum and both sides of the groin mainly manifested as perineal and rectal pain. And the pain increases during defecation. If the patients feel perineal pain, it is possibly caused by seminal vesiculitis.


4. Pain during intercourse

If male patients have pain during intercourse, mainly manifested as suprapubic dull pain accompanied by perineal discomfort, and painful ejaculation is particularly obvious, they are likely to be infected with chronic seminal vesiculitis.


5. Sexual dysfunction

If patients have low libido, nocturnal emission, premature ejaculation, and other symptoms, it may also be caused by seminal vesiculitis. They need to accept regular examinations and prompt treatment actively.


The disease will relapse easily if seminal vesiculitis patients do not go to a regular hospital for professional treatment. If their self-examination shows the above symptoms, they should be alert to the possibility of seminal vesiculitis, and it is recommended to seek medical treatment as soon as possible.


Seminal vesiculitis can induce prostatitis and other diseases at the same time, bringing pain to patients. Also, it is often easy to decline male sexual function, resulting in excessive psychological pressure on patients, mental depression, and even male infertility. 

Patients diagnosed with seminal vesiculitis can take traditional Chinese medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill for treatment. It has anti-inflammatory ingredients to remove the inflammation and heat-clearing and detoxifying ingredients to kill the disease-causing bacteria. It effectively promotes blood circulation, resolves blood stasis, and induces diuresis for treating stranguria. Meanwhile, it can help patients relieve pain and other irritant symptoms effectively.


In addition to taking medicine for seminal vesiculitis, patients must also pay attention to rest and appropriate exercise. At the same time, they should eat less stimulating food, quit smoking, and quit drinking alcohol. These methods are conducive to the recovery of the disease. 

During the onset of seminal vesiculitis, if patients have sex frequently regardless of the consequences, not only will they become sex-resistant because of painful ejaculation, leading to sexual dysfunction, but also their symptoms are hard to subside because of repeated strong contraction of the seminal vesicle. So in the period of having symptoms, they should stop sexual life but not abstain for a long time after hemospermia disappears. It is best to adjust the frequency of sexual life according to the actual situations.
