When is bacterial prostatitis considered chronic? I've been dealing with symptoms for two months. Can it be cured?

Probably at: Six months. Prostatitis comprises of infectious and inflammatory components. It can be difficult to control once you lose control of acute phase. Protracted course of antibiotics up to one or two months is sometimes needed. Life style modifications such as moderate exercise and avoiding protracted sitting or standing, hydration, hot baths are just as important. See a urologist.
