What causes a chronic bacterial prostatitis?

Not all prostatitis: Is bacterial. Perhaps prostate and seminal vesicle congestion may be irritating? We call prostatis when we cannot make a more specific diagnosis, and you suffer irritative effects. Commonly, anti-biotics are used, and anti-inflammatories. But sex, too much or too little, has no established role. Having sex can elevate the psa test, however. ...Read more

Can my prostatitis be passed to my wife and cause pid? Chlamydia and gonorrhea urine naat test negative .

Can my prostatitis be passed to my wife and cause pid?

Chlamydia and gonorrhea urine naat test negative .

Probably not, but...: Prostatitis isn't an STD, and with negative gonorrhea and chlamydia, probably no PID risk for your wife. However, some docs mistakenly diagnose nongonococcal urethritis (an STD)as prostatitis. If you've had abnormal discharge from your penis, it's probably NGU, not prostatitis. If so, and if you had sex w/ your wife after the source of your infection, your wife could be at risk & needs treatment. ...Read more

What else cause prostatitis? After sex wife is complaining of on and off pelvic and abdominal pain.

Prostatitis: This can be bacterial, or non-infectious, or due to organisms other than bacteria.

What prostatitis infection after hand job with oil?

Chlamydia and gonorrhea neg.

doxy, cipro, (ciprofloxacin) z pack, no help. Flagyl helped little.

What do I do?

Doubt prostatitis: No STD or any infection that might cause prostatitis is possible from such contact. I'm guessing your symptoms are some combination of urinary urgency, bladder discomfort, and/or testicular or low abdominal pain. Most men with such symptoms have genitally focused anxiety--pain from pevlic muscle tension not prostate. That all the antibiotics didn't help is very strong evidence against infection. ...Read more
