Symptoms of prostatitis - how to recognize the disease

Malaise with prostatitis in men

One of the vital organs in a man is the prostate.

The prostate sits above the bladder and promotes the production of sperm secretions.

Prostatitis has become younger in our time because it appears suddenly in men, not only after 30 years, but also in men between the ages of 20 and 25.

Therefore, if there are alarming symptoms characteristic of prostatitis, it is necessary to investigate it by a doctor.

The symptoms of prostatitis vary depending on the form and stage of the disease.

Symptoms of acute prostatitis appear

  • general weakness of the body on the background of chills and fever;
  • painful urination when cutting;
  • persistent pain, bursting, or cutting pain in the perineum radiating to the penis (head), scrotum, thigh, anus, lumbosacral region, and pubic bone;
  • increasing violation of urination;
  • the presence of purulent discharge and blood in the urine;
  • Violation of potency and erection;
  • male infertility.

The form of the disease depends on the type of pain. With non-infectious chronic prostatitis, constant pain occurs in various places.

Symptoms of non-infectious prostatitis appear

  • painful urination with a burning sensation at the end;
  • painful condition of the scrotum when touched;
  • frequent need to urinate;
  • Sphincter tension.

Infectious prostatitis, including the chronic stage, especially in untreated sexually transmitted diseases, is characterized by bursting burning pain that subsides with the use of antibiotic therapy.

Pain in prostatitis

The symptoms of infectious prostatitis are:

  • Decrease in sexual activity, the time of intercourse and premature ejaculation;
  • increasing difficulty urinating and defecating with secretion from the prostate;
  • general weakness, including drowsiness and chills.

With late treatment, it is possible to develop sepsis, chronic prostatitis, including prostate abscess, sexual disorders, and psychoemotional disorders.

Ignoring the symptoms of acute prostatitis leads to chronic illness. When an infection is introduced into the inflammatory process, especially in sexually transmitted diseases, the excretory ducts through the back of the urethra become inflamed and antiperistalsis occurs, which allows bacteria to freely invade the gland.

In addition, the infection is spread in diseases such as colitis, paraproctitis, cracks in the back aisle, and through the lymphatic system and bloodstream to the prostate.

After the weak first symptoms of acute prostatitis with sedimentation and accumulation of pathogenic microorganisms, the acute phase turns into chronic prostatitis with temporary remission and acute stages.

Symptoms of chronic bacterial prostatitis appear

  • a certain decrease in sexual activity;
  • an increase or decrease in the duration of sexual intercourse;
  • possible premature ejaculation at the beginning of sexual intercourse;
  • slight difficulty urinating and defecating;
  • periodic discomfort and burning sensation in the groin, urethra and perineum;
  • Secretion from the prostate;
  • general weakness of the body, including drowsiness.

When alarming symptoms appear, every man needs to see a urologist to examine laboratory tests, prescribe appropriate treatment and consultation.

The most alarming signals for suspected prostatitis are

  • Pains of a cutting, pulling, pressing and bursting character in the perineum, under the pubic bone, in the area of the scrotum and urethra;
  • Urination problem: frequent urination with a small amount of urine;
  • problematic intercourse in which the amount of sperm decreases during ejaculation, orgasmic sensations are weakened (they become weak and short), erectile function is impaired, male infertility occurs due to poor production of ejaculated, liquid sperm with pus from the prostate.
