Many patients with chronic prostatitis will have different degrees of sexual dysfunction, such as spermatorrhea, premature ejaculation, impotence, etc.
Can chronic prostatitis cause sexual dysfunction?
From the perspective of western medicine theory, chronic prostatitis does not directly damage the neurovascular function of penis erection, but because of long-term discomfort, patients often suffer from psychological stress, causing depression and anxiety, especially for patients who do not understand the nature of the disease, they often think that their sexual function has problems. Over time, mental factors can reduce the patient's sexual desire and cause sexual dysfunction. In addition, when patients with prostatitis are sexually excited, prostate congestion can cause local pain to increase, and can cause ejaculation pain and premature ejaculation. Moreover, some patients are afraid that the inflammatory semen will harm the woman, which will lead to fear of sexual life for a long time, reducing sexual life and reducing sexual desire. According to the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, any chronic disease will lead to physical weakness and physical decline, while chronic prostatitis will damage the kidney for a long time, resulting in insufficient kidney essence and weak kidney qi, which will indeed lead to the phenomenon of inadequate sexual life.
In a word, chronic prostatitis will have a certain impact on sexual function, but most patients with chronic prostatitis can complete normal sexual life, and even some patients with severe prostatitis will have no impact on sexual function. Therefore, when patients with chronic prostatitis are actively treated, they should remove unnecessary ideological concerns, understand relevant medical knowledge, and accept certain psychological treatment if necessary. Normal and moderate sex life will not only aggravate the prostatitis, but also play a positive role in promoting the treatment of chronic prostatitis.
