Can a man get prostatitis and be fertile?
Prostatitis can affect fertility because prostate fluid is a component of semen. When pathogenic microorganisms and inflammatory secretions in the current glandular fluid are mixed into semen, they can affect the survival rate and vitality of sperm.

Therefore, if prostatitis is detected, it is necessary to adhere to treatment to prevent recurrence, which is more conducive to fertility.
