Chronic prostatitis is one of the most common prostate diseases in men, but many male friends do not know enough about chronic prostatitis and are prone to fall into various misunderstandings in treatment and care. Do you have the following misconceptions about chronic prostatitis?
Common misunderstandings of chronic prostatitis
1、 Chronic prostatitis can be treated with antibiotics
For the treatment of chronic bacterial prostatitis, it is necessary to give priority to antibiotics, supplemented by symptomatic drugs and physical treatment. With regard to chronic non-bacterial prostatitis, it is more difficult to obtain outstanding results with antibiotics alone.
2、 One-sided thinking that chronic prostatitis is infectious
The vast majority of chronic prostatitis in clinical practice can not find pathogenic bacteria, that is, it belongs to non-bacterial prostatitis. As for this type of chronic prostatitis, it is not infectious. As for bacterial prostatitis, most of them are caused by non-specific bacteria. Because the woman's vagina has certain self-cleaning function and disease-resistant ability, the husband and wife life of patients with bacterial prostatitis is usually safe.
3、 Compare chronic prostatitis with prostatic hyperplasia
There are often patients who compare the two, and many patients worry that chronic prostatitis will directly lead to prostatic hyperplasia. In fact, all these knowledge are wrong. This is because chronic prostatitis and prostatic hyperplasia are two completely different diseases with different etiology and pathology, and there is no certain connection between them.
4、 Concern that chronic prostatitis is attributed to venereal disease
Prostatitis is the most common inflammatory disease of the male reproductive system. It is difficult to treat. Many people mistook it as a sexually transmitted disease. It is true that some chronic prostatitis patients have certain contact with sexually transmitted diseases. They develop chronic prostatitis after being infected with sexually transmitted diseases. The prostatitis of these patients is often caused by gonococcus, chlamydia and ureaplasma urealyticum. Some patients with sexually transmitted diseases were embarrassed to tell the doctor about the condition of the disease and treated with many antibiotics, resulting in bacterial resistance and the onset of chronic prostatitis.
