Yellow Semen And Prostatitis
Possibly: Pain in the perineum, the region between the anus and the scrotum, frequency, urgency and slowing of the urinary stream with a possible fever are consistent with acute prostatitis. 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.
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
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?
Sometimes: Semen is produced in the prostate and is expelled when you ejaculate. Prostate infection causes inflammation and pain can occur in the prostate, penis, testicles and pelvis. The prostate is most active during arousal / ejac and penis pain is common. Color, volume and consistency of the semen can change. See an md for possible antibiotics. Other causes include: urethral scar, urine infx, stis. ...Read more
Has prostatitis anything to do with less amount of semen secretion? I had underwent urethrosystoscopy a month earlier.
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

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

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.

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
