A terrible dream of a man and one of the most unpleasant and delicate diseases - prostatitis. They don't like to talk about it and don't pay attention until a serious flare-up starts. . . And then the fight against the consequences, in which all means are good, but little help.
How to treat prostatitis so that it does not become chronic and why it is easy for them to get sick, but difficult to get rid of it, in our article.
What is prostatitis?
Prostatitis is an inflammation of the prostate gland, an organ that only men have. Located in the pelvic region, below the bladder. The urethra runs through the prostate.
Functions of the prostate:
- produces a secret gland (male sex hormone), which provides motility to sperm and is part of sperm;
- blocks the urethra during erection.
How to treat prostatitis depends on whether it is acute or chronic, but first, let's treat the symptoms.
How to understand that you are sick
Feelings in acute prostatitis:
- high fever, chills;
- pain when urinating, when dripping or when constantly flushing the toilet, although the bladder is empty;
- pain in the perineum: it can be administered under the testicles, in the rectum, in the genitals or in the sacrum;
- fainting from orgasm, no previous range of feelings during intercourse;
- general malaise (muscles, bones, joints hurt), it may be difficult for the patient to explain exactly what;
Chronic prostatitis is acute and is not treated. The pain subsides completely or is constantly present, but with less intensity, so the patient does not pay attention to it. Exacerbations occur periodically in chronic prostatitis. The symptoms are the same as in the acute ones.
One type of chronic prostatitis is chronic pelvic pain syndrome. That:
- persistent, for several months, pain in the pelvic region,
- frequent need to use the bathroom,
- bad psycho-emotional state.
At the same time, there may be no bacteria in the secret of the prostate, and pain is associated with other reasons.
The symptoms serve as a guide for the doctor to determine the type and describe how to treat prostatitis.
How to treat prostatitis
Due to a sedentary lifestyle and sedentary work, the blood stagnates. The cause can be infections, lack of sexual intercourse, hypothermia.
When the first symptoms, pain and temperature appear, it is not necessary to hold on and wait for everything to pass by itself. Do not hesitate to consult a doctor.
In case of acute or exacerbated chronic prostatitis, you need to take a smear, a culture of the genital tract to determine what kind of disease (bacterial or non-bacterial), do an ultrasound of the prostate gland.
If in the analyzes: gonococci, chlamydia, trichome, treat prostatitis with antibacterial drugs and take them together with a partner.
If microorganisms such as staphylococci, streptococci, gardenella, mycoplasma, ureaplasma, in this case, antibacterial drugs should not be taken. These microorganisms always live in a person, they are activated during hypothermia, blood stasis and lowered immunity. How to treat prostatitis in this case? Improve immunity and eliminate stagnation of blood in the pelvic organs, regularly take courses of preventive physiotherapy. At present, special physical equipment has been developed and is being used successfully for the release of procedures for men.
What the specialist prescribes:
- anti-inflammatory drugs;
- medications that facilitate urination;
- special exercises to improve blood circulation;
- prostate massage;
The disease does not go away quickly. The acute inflammation phase is 5-7 days. After that, the symptoms become less pronounced. The patient thinks that everything is fine and stops the treatment. This is the main mistake. Untreated acute prostatitis becomes chronic, and this is a life with constant discomfort during urination, sexual intercourse, and when sitting.
