Yes it does: The prostate is very involved in making up the semen - so if you've been told you have prostatitis then indeed I would expect some abnormalities until your condition is cured. It looks like you're on levofloxacin, which is good medicine for prostate infections - I hope your doc cultured you to be 100% sure. Hang in there - I think you will get better but it may take some time.
