Bacterial Prostatitis

By - Sweet Cures Founder and Owner

What is Bacterial Prostatitis?

The prostate is the gland that produces the fluid component of semen. It is about the size of a walnut and is located between the bladder and penis. The urethra runs from the bladder to penis through the prostate. The urethra allows urine to pass out of the body. Bacterial Prostatitis is inflammation of the prostate which is caused by bacterial infection. The infection can be "acute" or "chronic" depending on severity and duration of the infection.

Bacterial Prostatitis Symptoms

Bacterial Prostatitis can be very painful and distressing and you may experience the following symptoms:

  • feeling a constant urge to pass urine with pain or stinging when you do so
  • decreased urine stream- malodorous urine- pain during ejaculation or bowel movement
  • pain in lower abdomen/back/testicles/rectum/perineum
  • blood present in urine and semen
  • fever, shivering and general malaise

Bacterial Prostatitis is usually caused by common strains of bacteria such as E-Coli, Proteus and Klebsiella but can occur in response to a range of issues such as:

  • Urinary Tract Infection (bacteria in urine can leak into the prostate)
  • Epidymitis (inflammation of the tubes between the vas deferens and testicles)
  • Urethritis (inflammation of the urethra)
  • Perineal Injury (area between testes and anus)
  • Phimosis (inability to pull back the foreskin of the penis)
  • Sexually Transmitted Diseases such as chlamydia and gonorrhoea
  • Bladder obstructions such as bladder stones

Medical Emergency

Bacterial Prostatitis - nausea

If you experience fast breathing, fever, a fast heartbeat, nausea, vomiting, confusion or disorientation, this may be signs of sepsis (infection in the blood). Please seek medical attention immediately.

Acute Urinary Retention (not being able to urinate) is a medical emergency which requires drainage through a catheter in hospital.

Bacterial Prostatitis Diagnosis

It is important to visit your doctor particularly if you experience discharge from the penis, any swelling of the testes or perineal pain. Your GP may test your blood and urine for infection. They will need to do a rectal examination using a gloved lubricated finger. They may need to massage the prostate to obtain a sample of fluid to test. They may also check how well your bladder empties using urodynamic tests.

Bacterial Prostatitis Treatment

Antibiotics are the most common treatment for Bacterial Prostatitis and it is important to visit your doctor as soon as you have symptoms to have a prescription to hand.

Commence on D-Mannose tablets or powder as soon as you experience symptoms. Many sufferers of Bacterial Prostatitis have reported significant relief after 2 days of taking 3 tablets every 3 hours. D-Mannose is well-known for its success in treating bladder infections. It naturally bonds to E-Coli like a magnet and is flushed out of the system through the urine.

D-Mannose still bonds to E-Coli in the prostate but needs to be cleared or will remain stuck.Therefore, it is advisable, if you are able, to ejaculate 2 times a day (within 2 hours of taking D-Mannose) to clear the infection.(This may be painful at first but you should notice ejaculation is much less painful by the third day)

Why not just take antibiotics?

Many Bacterial Prostatitis sufferers have found that the infection does not clear up with antibiotics and that bacterial strains are becoming antibiotic-resistant compounding the problem. Antibiotics also can trigger further health problems since they kill off good as well as bad bacteria (e.g. candida, leaky gut syndrome). Given that you are under medical supervision to keep an expert eye on your overall prostate health, it is well worth giving D-Mannose a try to see the benefit and in many cases avoid having to take antibiotics.

Preventing Bacterial Prostatitis

  • Take a daily maintenance before sleep of D-Mannose to maintain good bladder and prostate health.
  • Avoid cycling or use padded shorts to take pressure off your prostate
  • You may find sitting on an inflated cushion or pillow will help- Take a warm bath to help relax your muscles and ease the pain
  • Avoid alcohol, coffee and spicy foods.
  • Drink plenty of fluids and try to empty your bladder fully when you urinate.
  • Ejaculate regularly- Have regular check-ups
