Prostate Inflammation> is a disease that mainly affects men between the ages of twenty and fifty-five. The older the man, the greater the risk of prostatitis.
With initial prostatitis, the functions of the gland are activated. Along with the onset of inflammation, tissue regeneration occurs.
Let's talk in more detail about the first signs of prostatitis in men and treatment.
How to recognize?
The onset of prostatitis is rarely recognized unambiguously, since sometimes it is asymptomatic, and its symptoms are individual for each patient and change over time.
These features include:
- A man has a little difficulty passing urine in the toilet. The gland gradually enlarges, the urine channel contracts.
- The patient loses interest in sex. Difficulties with arousal of the penis increase when attempting to have sexual contact. Orgasm is achieved with difficulty, or weak, or completely disappears.
- Burning in the urethra, itching in the perineum.
- I often want to urinate, but it comes out drop by drop.
- The semen comes out quickly during intercourse with minimal pleasure.
- General fatigue, depression, irritability, aggressiveness, anxiety increase.
A man experiences weakness, his working capacity decreases.
Noise in my ears, ringing in my head.
In the morning, a person feels overwhelmed, loses initiative in life.
At the same time, at night, sometimes prolonged erection and painful ejaculation occur spontaneously, not associated with having sex.
Observing these phenomena, the patient calms down, believing that he is well with potency, the problems, in his opinion, are connected with the partner, their relationship. He is possessed by depression, which aggravates the development of the disease.
The first signs of prostatitis in a man
There is a definite difficulty for the doctor and patient to associate these symptoms with prostate disease. They can be caused by the stress experienced (especially if there are reasons), with a conflict in personal life.
They are more confidently associated with incipient prostatitis if other symptoms follow:
- The patient experiences pain in the groin, eggs, perineum, lower back.
- With prostatitis, frequent urination, especially at night, this process is more and more painful, the result of attempts to empty the bladder is less and less significant.
- Discharge of mucus from the urethra begins.
The symptoms of the first prostatitis slowly build up for a year, two, three. Worst of all, they have the character of a chain reaction: due to the growth of negative phenomena in the prostate gland, a man not only does not find satisfaction himself, but is also unable to satisfy his sexual partner.
Because of this, sexual intercourse is becoming less frequent, which causes stagnation of blood circulation in the pelvic area. Such stagnation, in turn, is one of the causes of prostatitis.
Acute prostatitis differs in symptomatology from chronic.
- Temperature for no apparent reason sometimes rises to 38-39 degrees, with parenchymal prostatitis - up to 40 ° C.
- Dysuria reaches the point of being unable to urinate.
- Perineal pain becomes especially intense.
- The patient is seized with chills, he experiences nausea before vomiting.
- I'm having trouble defecating.
What to do?
In chronic inflammation, the pain is mild, it occurs and subside periodically in the perineum, is given in the lower back, pubis. Excessive perspiration, especially in the perineum.
Sexual dysfunction becomes permanent. Instead of urine for prostatitis in the morning, prostate secretion is secreted. The pain is mostly aching, it spreads to the sacrum, suprapubic, rectum, penis.
The rate of development of sexual disorders depends on the degree of involvement in the process of pathology of the seminal tubercle, seminal vesicles located next to the prostate. With a long course of the initial stage of prostatitis in men, the intensity of the production of sex hormones decreases.
Young men in such cases often panic and fear sexual intercourse. The fear of "disgracing", not being able to perform the necessary actions with a partner leads to neurosis, which further worsens sexual function.
Sexual dysfunction occurs when there is an excess of female hormones in the body of a man, a lack of male hormones. They can also be a consequence of latent asymptomatic inflammation of the prostate, not previously identified. Their development sometimes leads to male infertility.
If you find the first signs of prostatitis, what to do? When these signs appear, you need to make an appointment with a urologist, who will send the patient for tests, based on their results, diagnose (or not) the disease, its type.
Identification of the ethology of prostatitis: bacterial or not is also of the utmost importance for the choice of treatment method. Treating non-infectious prostatitis with antibiotics, for example, is not only useless, but also very harmful to the body.
First aid for prostatitis will be provided by a doctor. It aims to restore normal urination with prostatitis. To do this, it is necessary to urgently reduce the size of the prostate gland, which compresses the urethral canal and does not allow urine to escape.
Relaxation of the musculature of the gland can be achieved, for example, by massage of the prostate.
Prostate massage is a procedure that requires special qualifications of a masseur.
Its execution by an amateur is fraught with serious complications, irreversible damage to internal organs.
For the treatment of bacterial prostatitis, a course of antibiotics is prescribed, rectal suppositories. It must be understood that harmful microorganisms cannot be exterminated with folk remedies, exercise, physical procedures and diet.
These methods will either promote healing or be needed during remission.
At the same time, for the treatment of bacterial prostatitis, their combination may be sufficient for a complete cure without "chemistry", that is, pharmacy medicines. It all depends on the stage of the disease, the individual characteristics of the patient's body, the doctor's experience.
If the disease has left the stage of exacerbation, there is no more infection, the patient needs to heal as soon as possible:
- start a regular sex life as soon as possible;
- eliminate bad habits. Eat a diet for prostatitis patients;
- move more, play sports. Perform special exercises for men.
What other diseases are there with these symptoms?
The symptoms described are not necessarily indicative of prostatitis. They also accompany kidney diseases, infections of the urethra, venereal and other diseases.
Urethritis is the most common male disease. This is an infection in the urethra caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi. They are infected mainly through sexual contact.
Sometimes an infection waits for a convenient hour in the body and manifests itself when the immune system is weakened. The reasons for its decrease are the same as those that cause non-bacterial prostatitis: hypothermia, bad habits, chaotic sexual behavior, abuse of sour, spicy, salty foods, stress, physical activity.
What exactly is inflamed: the prostate or the urethra (or both), will be shown by tests, ultrasound examination. On the basis of the doctor will give a diagnosis.
Now you know about the first symptoms of prostatitis in men and its treatment. As with any disease, the sooner prostatitis is detected, the sooner you will heal it.
Neglecting the first signs of prostatitis and treatment, brings frivolous patients to the surgeon's table. Better to take action in a timely manner.
