Safe Sex With Prostatitis
Yes: Yes... No problem.Get a more detailed answer ›
Having sex when you have bacterial prostatitis is safe? Will it effect my partner if left untreated or will it pass to my partner if I'm on antibiotic
Probably safe but...: If the diagnosis is correct, no problem. Bacterial prostatitis is caused by bacteria that are normal in the female genital tract. However, bacterial prostatitis is uncommon in young men, and STDs like NGU, chlamydia or gonorrhea can be misdiagnosed as prostatitis. If at risk for STD (other partners), need STD tests. If your antibiotics cover STDs, your partner probably is protected. Discuss w doc. ...Read more

Perhaps: Prostate and seminal vesicle congestion is 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

First off - why would you want your partner to have the risk of acquiring the infection that is causing your prostatitis?
Secondly - it will hurt.

It is caused by an infection, usually a bacterial or a sexually transmitted infection. Symptoms can include: painful and swollen scrotum, pain with intercourse and ejaculation, blood in the semen. See your doctor for testing and antibiotics. ...Read more
Safe, not adviseable: Safe but I doubt that your husband would be up to it. Prostatis is very painful and uncomfortable. It is better to wait until treatment has completed. Sometimes a second medication is added for pain and obstruction that can also occur. Sepsis can also occur depending on the acuity and age of the patient although less likely in someone at this age. ...Read more
I started taking Avelox for prostatitis. How long does it take before side effects are shown. Is this a safe drug? And wise for prostate?
Fluoroquinolone: The prostate is a rather difficult organ to penetrate with antibiotics. It is encapsulated and require long periods of time for any meaningful antibiotic concentrations to build up. Avelox is a 5th generation fluoroquinolone. 3 weeks plus is recommended for the infection. ...Read more
If I got prostatitis from oral sex. Can I pass it on to someone else. Chlmydia, gon, mycoplasma gen UU negative. Really worried I could infect my wife?
Consider it so: Get in to see doc and get treated. Avoid "homework" until your doc thinks you are clear. Tell the spouse you got this possible staph infection from not peeing enough, or not having sex enough, or whatever else you come up with. She may suspect the truth but if you give her something that might be true she may spare you. ...Read more
I have prostatitis and have been given cipro (ciprofloxacin). Everything I have seen says cipro (ciprofloxacin) has horrible side effects/debilatating. How safe is cipro (ciprofloxacin)?
It's OK: Cipro (ciprofloxacin) has a number of side effects, just like any antibiotic does. It's no worse than others. It's been used for a while for a number of different infections and I use it quite frequently and am yet to see a significant side effect from it. As with any antibiotic, I recommend that you always take a probiotic supplement to prevent diarrhea associated with the use of antibiotic. Take an otc one. ...Read more
I get conflicting info ;can chronic bacterial prostatitis cause problems w/partner thru sex? I was treated w/antibiotics but symptoms are now chronic
No risk, but...: ...chronic bacterial prostatitis is rare at your age. Is the diagnosis certain? Nonbacterial prostatitis far more common, or chronic pelvic pain syndrome (same symptoms, easily confused with prostatitis). None of these is sexually transmitted and none risky for sex partners. However, sometimes nongonococcal urethritis is misdiagnosed as prostatitis. NGU is an STD and can be harmful for partners ...Read more
I'm 16 year old. I have prostatitis. I'm taking roliten 2, impramine hcl ip, moxikind cv 625 Is it safe to masturbate while having prostatitis?
Here are some...: Your taking these drugs led me to assume that you have been evaluated & counseled by professionals for your urinary symptoms, who should be the ones knowing why these drugs were prescribed and what may be expected. All other online inquiry would not be good enough to give opinions for your individual situations. So, ask them except you do not trust them or just want to hear what you like to hear. ...Read more
Doctor said if u have prostatitis & you do sex/masturbation it may aggravate your prostate. A male can't do sex in his life if he has prostatitis?
Despite not having sex for quite a long time I ejaculated frequently through masturbation. How come I've been diagnosed with congestive prostatitis?
See answer: So-called "congestive prostatitis" usually reserved for those men with symptoms of prostatitis, possible hx of prostate fluid urethral discharge due to overflow, a "boggy" feeling gland on digital exam, and usually (but not always) associated with and due to infrequent ejaculation (sexual and mastubation). Some "stimulated" men with regular ejaculation just produce high amounts of prostate fluid. ...Read more
Received oral sex that has led to prostatitis. All std negative including m gen. What could have caused it if not by std? Am I contagious?
Pelvic pain?: Prostatitis is not due to any STD, and oral sex is not known to cause prostatitis. Those events probably are unrelated. Or maybe you have chronic pelvic pain syndrome, which causes symptoms similar to prostatitis; read the very good Wikipedia article. CPPS is uncomfortable but harmless. Your local NHS GUM clinic would be an excellent option for expert care for it. Antibiotics probably won't help. ...Read more
One of the consequences of non-bacterial prostatitis is lowered intensity of orgasm and overall sensations during sex. Can it be restored?
Something else?: To my knowledge, prostatitis doesn't do this. Discuss other possibilities with your doctor. If the main problem is not true prostatitis, e.g. if you have chronic pelvic pain syndrome, I suppose such symptoms might result from the psychological aspects. Google CPPS (spell it out) for more information; there is a good Wikipedia article you could start with. ...Read more
