Also, defining prostatitis isn't easy -- for example, look up "chronic pelvic pain syndrome" and compare with prostatitis. And of course if you're going serious research on this, you need to use proper scientific resources, not just forums like this! ...Read more

Hello I am just 20 years old just diagnosed with prostatitis and admit I do masturbate frequently is it possible that I over did it and that was the cause or could it be combined with other factors?? Thanks
