In brief: It depends

There are different kinds of prostatitis.
Types i and ii prostatitis are treated with antibiotics for at least 4 weeks. However type iii prostatitis may not repond to antibiotics, so other treatments should be used if symptoms persist after a course of antibiotics and there is no evdience of bacteria in the urine.
