One may see purulent discharge or yellowish ejaculate in this circumstance. This is uncommon occurring in about 5% of the prostatitis cases. More common is chronic prostatitis which would be without a fever or prostatodynia. ...Read more

I have prostatitis. I want to know does prostatitis effect semen stream, because I have slow semen stream, but urine stream is fine.

I have prostatitis. I want to know does prostatitis effect semen stream, because I have slow semen stream, but urine stream is fine.

Yes it does: The prostate is very involved in making up the semen - so if you've been told you have prostatitis then indeed I would expect some abnormalities until your condition is cured. It looks like you're on levofloxacin, which is good medicine for prostate infections - I hope your doc cultured you to be 100% sure. Hang in there - I think you will get better but it may take some time. ...Read more

How to increase the amount of semen with chronic prostatitis?

How to increase the amount of semen with chronic prostatitis?

Prostatitis: The prostate gland accounts for about 2/3 of the volume of ejaculate. Chronic inflammation/infection may reduce this. Treating the inflammatory process and warm sitz baths for about 15-20 minutes twice a day may help, but beyond these measures it is difficult to predict how to increase volume of semen. Good luck. ...Read more

Is it possible that pseudomonas found in semen culture be responsible for my prostatitis symptoms? Do you consider pseudomonas as dangerous infection?

Possible: If you have prostatitis symptoms and a properly collected specimen of seminal fluid was obtained then this bacteria could be the culprit. Many infections have the potential of being dangerous, and you should be approppriately treated with antibiotics. ...Read more

I took meds for prostatitis & I am feeling fine. Yesterday, I ejaculated some drops of semen went to anus. Can I get bacteria if semen goes to anus?

Fistula possible: To confirm- you have a chronic prostatitis for which you take abx. When you ejaculate, semen comes out of your anus- if this is the case, you need to see a urologist, to determine if you have a fistula. Normally, there is NO opening between the anus and your prostate; a chronic prostate infection could have caused the opening, or else the opening was present and is now infecting the prostate. ...Read more

Here are some...: Known to us, many men have been labeled with the diagnosis of chronic prostatitis due to their irritatiive voiding symptoms although most of them may have no documented infection, but have some irritation to nerve-endings to local tissues. To deduce what should be done, more info is needed. How to get these done correctly, go to articles in http://formefirst. Com/onBPH-LUTS-VoidingTrouble. Html. ...Read more

Urine cultures came back negative, and a semen culture also came back negative. How certain can I be that I don't have Chronic Bacterial Prostatitis?

CBP: That's a very good question. CBP is difficult to treat. The prostate is enveloped in a capsule which makes it difficult for antibiotics to penetrate. In general 3 weeks of antibiotic course is used but there are doctors who treat far longer than this due to symptoms not abating. Prostatic massage with fluid collection can be done in addition to what you mentioned. Are you symptomatic? ...Read more

Prostatitis can be found without physical checkup? Had semen analysis and pus cells 10-15hpf r found. Doctor said this is due to prostatitis.

Physical exam: I would expect a physician who's talking about me having prostatitis to give me a rectal, and probably to check the first bit of urine I pass after the rectal. Diagnosing prostatitis / prostate pain / prostate infection / non-infectious prostate troubles is tricky. If no bacteria, sometimes something as simple as a stool softener helps. Good luck. ...Read more

When I pass stool there are few drops of semen (pre cum) comes out. Is this due to prostatitis or something else? I feel aching sensation in testes.

See Urol: There may be some prostate issue as the stool passes through the anus and "brushes" by the prostate area, causing you to leak fluid from your urethra-you need to see a urologist to get the issue evaluated. Best wishes. ...Read more

Ultrasound test shows normal size of prostate, psa: 1.0, urine/semen cultures clear of bacteria, 2-3hpf of pus cells in semen culture. Is this all enough to conclude that I don't have prostatitis?

Ultrasound test shows normal size of prostate, psa: 1.0, urine/semen cultures clear of bacteria, 2-3hpf of pus cells in semen culture. Is this all enough to conclude that I don't have prostatitis?

Prostatitis: Prostatitis is a "clinical diagnosis". There is not a test that confirms or rules it out. Diagnosis is based on digital rectal examination of the prostate and more importantly, your symptoms. Ultrasound has no role in diagnosing prostatitis. ...Read more

No: If common bacteria and STDs have been ruled out then your chronic prostatitis is a matter of irritation that is common in young sexually active men and things should settle down later on. No need to worry too much at this time. ...Read more

Having trouble excreting stool, semen leakage if push hard, so scared to push hard. Have prostatitis, tingling in penis tip, abdomen pain, treatment! Plz!

Having trouble excreting stool, semen leakage if push hard, so scared to push hard. Have prostatitis, tingling in penis tip, abdomen pain, treatment! Plz!

Prostatitis: Soften your stool. That is the only possible answer here. I would not assume that you are anything but smart, but if you have troubles pushing out your stool you must soften it with medicine or excess fiber and water.

There is no reason to be scared. You have a common condition. Take the treatment and treat your body with kindness and appropriate concern. ...Read more

I haven't had sex for a week, but last night after sex my sperm was yellow almost like mucus what can cause this. I also have prostatitis?

Okay, most likely...: The color & texture of semen vary among men - along their life from time to time, but with no clinical significance with no need to pay attention to it as long as being comfortable in sex (not overdoing) and voiding. So, it is practically unnecessary to extend and expand imagination to worry about it. For life reality? To lists of Facts of Life-1, 2, &3 on the left of HOME page of www. ForMeFirst.

Prostatitis: One of the more effective ways of treating prostatitis along with antibiotics is frequent ejaculation. Do not know why your semen was yellow, but may be related to the medications or the vitamins. You will hopefully clear up quickly. Try using hot sitz baths as an adjunct. ...Read more

Can urethral stricture or conjested prostititis be painless? I've had a weak/split urine stream and semen during bowel movement for some time. Age 36

Congested prostate: Urethral strictures usually cause decreased flow, not usually painful unless associated with uti. I don't know how you can tell you have a congested prostate without symptoms. Weak stream and seminal fluid drainage during bowell movements can occur specially with constipation or severe straining with bm's. Voiding dysfunction can occur at times but more specific diagnosis will require an exam. ...Read more
