Yes: You may have pelvic floor dysfunction that medications won't help. Consider seeing a physical therapist who specializes in pelvic muscle therapy.

Unfortunately no: Chronic proststatitis can continue for many years in spite of treatment, especially chronic non-bacterial prostatitis. Also if infectious prostatic stones are present. Such stones need to be removed, usually by agressive transurethral resection, otherwise infection can not be irradicated. Interstitial cystitis can sometimes be confused with chronic prostatitis.
