Prostatitis Symptoms

Prostatitis SymptomsProstatitis Symptoms

Men can initially determine whether they have any prostatitis symptoms by taking the International Prostatitis Symptoms Test. This easy test can determine the degree of the symptoms as well as initial treatment options for prostatitis. Depending on the types of prostatitis and whether it is bacterial or chronic prostatitis, different treatments may be prescribed.

Acute Bacterial Prostatitis Symptoms

Acute bacterial prostatitis symptoms typically include the following items. Men do not have to experience all of these symptoms, and in fact many men do not. However, these are the most common symptoms: a strong urge to urinate immediately, difficulty starting the urinary stream, a weak urinary stream once it starts, dribbling after you think you are finished, frequent nighttime urination, pain and/or burning when you urinate, pain in the genital and pelvic area, pain when you ejaculate, chills, fever, nausea, malaise (generally feeling run-down), and vomiting.

Chronic Bacterial Prostatitis Symptoms

Chronic bacterial prostatitis symptoms generally are the same as those experienced by men who have acute bacterial prostatitis. However, one addition symptom that often affects men with chronic bacterial prostatitis is urinary tract infections. These urinary tract infections tend to recur frequently and to always involve the same bacteria.

Chronic Nonbacterial Prostatitis Symptoms

Chronic nonbacterial prostatitis symptoms are similar to those of acute and chronic bacterial prostatitis. However, the symptoms tend to come and go rather than be persistent. Bacteria generally are not involved in chronic nonbacterial prostatitis. Therefore, men typically do not experience urinary tract infections or symptoms usually associated with an infection, such as chills, fever, nausea, and vomiting as part of the symptoms.

For some men, symptoms of chronic nonbacterial prostatitis improve over time without treatment. That’s important, because approximately 90 percent of all cases of prostatitis are chronic nonbacterial prostatitis. Therefore, many men face the challenge of the disease. A “special” symptom you might experience with this form of prostatitis is blood in your urine or semen. As its name implies, to meet the requirements of an official diagnosis of chronic nonbacterial prostatitis, you must have symptoms for at least three months.
