Why do i have chronic prostatitis? ALL started after hand job with lotion and oil from massage parlor. I may have infec my wife with prostate bacteria

Why do i have chronic prostatitis? ALL started after hand job with lotion and oil from massage parlor. I may have infec my wife with prostate bacteria

"Prostate bacteria" are the same ones normal in intestines and genital tract and would not harm your wife. I doubt you have true prostatitis, probably all psychogenic. Google and read up on chronic pelvic pain syndrome; the Wikipedia article is good. ...Read more

See below: The answer is, who knows? There have been no well designed, prospective clinical trials to look at this issue. All we have to go on is experience (e.g. Your doctor says "well, one time i had a patient who..."), so any advice that i, or anyone else probably, could give you would be theorizing at best, and guessing at worst. ...Read more

Chronic prostatitis is a family of disease -- with or without demonstrable infection -- and whatever you actually have is likely to be a longtime nuisance and very unlikely to be a prostate cancer or to lead to one. Antibiotics, stool softeners & more may be in your future. ...Read more
