In brief: Variable

If the prostatitis is due to bacterial infection, proper antibiotic treatment should relieve symptoms in a matter of days.
However in most cases the cause of prostatic inflammation is not known and antibiotics are not helpful. Unfortunately, prostatitis may be chronic or remitting and relapsing.
