However, some men will develop prostate infections related to stis like chlamydia or gonorrhea, and vice versa for women who might have urethral infections.

Prostatitis Rx: There are two kinds of prostatitis: acute (usually more severe) and chronic (most common). Chronic prostatitis is generally treated with several weeks (2-6) of antibiotics like Ciprofloxacin or trimethorprim-suflamethoxazole. Acute prostatitis is usually treated in the hospital with intravenous antibiotics because this condition can be associated with bacteria in the blood stream and shock.

Does drinking lots of water make it less likely that i'll get prostatitis?

Does drinking lots of water make it less likely that i'll get prostatitis?

No: Prostatitis is generally an infection in the prostate gland. Acute prostatitis is initially treated with antibiotics and anti-inflmmatory medications. Drinking lots of water may help you indirectly by generating more urine volume and thereby not allowing possible bacteria to be held in the bladder for a prolonged period of time by causing you to void more frequently. However, one can still get it.

I'm doing research on the subject of celibacy, and would like to know if celibacy causes prostatitis in men like some studies have suggested? Thanks

Very doubtful: It is unlikely that sexual abstinence or celibacy (they aren't the same) causes prostatitis. Several aspects of that theory make no sense at all. 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!
