The Connection between Prostatitis and Erectile Dysfunction

Prostatitis is inflammation of the prostate, or prostate gland, a very important sexual organ of the male reproductive system. Prostatitis – one of the most common urological diseases of young men, but it can appear at any age.

Common prostatitis symptoms:

  • frequent urination;
  • burning sensation in urethra;
  • a decrease in sexual desire.

How does prostatitis develop?

Prostatitis can be caused by previously poorly treated infection. But you can get sick, and in conditions of prolonged exposure to cold and moisture when there is no infection. That’s why there is good advice – wear shoes suitable for the weather and try to wear underwear underpants when the temperature drops to -10-12 degrees.

Another disorder of prostate – benign prostatic hyperplasia.

What is common in prostatitis and adenoma?

These diseases often “appear” together. If prostatitis can occur in any part of the prostate, adenoma develops in its central portion surrounding urethra. It’s not inflammation, but also quite a nasty disease, which leads to urination violations:

  • the weakening of urine stream;
  • night urges;
  • frequent trips to the toilet.

Do not wait until it will be too difficult to urinate, and sometimes impossible (it does happen). Already at the initial manifestations of disease, it is desirable to consult a competent doctor.

Medicine does not stand still. Today, urologists obtain effective, past clinical testing methods to help cope with prostatitis. These methods include:

  • oral medicine (capsules, tablets, syrups);
  • administered intravenous medications;
  • physiotherapy;
  • ozone therapy;
  • prostate massage.

Prostate massage is also widespread: it is considered very effective for prostatitis. This is not entirely true. Massage is effective only in some cases, such as for example, congestive prostatitis. Specialists have long replaced massage by physiotherapy in many European countries. The myth about “miraculous massage” was supported by Semi-Medical business area. A self-respecting doctor is studying international experience, reading professional literature, taking part in scientific conferences and … valued his reputation. Therefore, he strongly opposed methods that are used only in order to capitalize on the patient.

Do not be Shy!

Man, as a rule, is shy of going to the doctor with a problem that could “undermine his authority” in eyes of friends, wives, co-workers, neighbors: “And if they find out that I had become weakling?” And this is true of men all over the world – this is nature of men. The man is afraid that will cease to be “male”, “alpha male” in eyes of friends and women. It is referred not only to prostatitis but also to erectile dysfunction, which is also engaged in urological treatment.

Although erectile dysfunction is often seen as a combination of:

  • urological problems;
  • psychological disorders.

We’re not really thinking, we say that all should be done in a timely manner. Rare feast is conducted without toast: “Be healthy!”, and when a meeting was stormy, we, as before, put off a solution until later. But when it comes to health, such a position can lead to great troubles. As soon as any symptoms of the prostate disease or repeatedly occurred erectile dysfunction, it is necessary to consult a doctor.

We can assure you that confidentiality is strictly observed in most clinics. The administrator never calls patient’s name at reception or at reception, and the doctor will not talk about diagnosis or sick leaving his office door. The information in medical records can be accessed only by attending physician and patient.

At a reception to a urologist, people come with different problems, each of which is very important for us – doctors. Do not be shy and afraid of the doctor.

Erectile Dysfunction

Diseases of the prostate gland, in some cases, are accompanied by erectile function disorder. Often patients ask, “Why it all started”, to answer this question is as difficult as a question of what comes first – matter or consciousness.

If a patient suffers from prostatitis, it is often necessary to treat simultaneously all at once. But the main causes of prostatitis can be determined on the first reception after spending 30-40 minute survey. In urology, one-time treatment is not applied. And you can not name a single agent of disease (every person is individual), and especially the time of upcoming treatment. Typically, physician says about an approximate period during which it is possible to solve the problem, for example, two months. It is not car repair, at which, in general, everything is clear. The human body is designed much more complex as a machine, and each of us is unique.

In urology, it is used in many ways to treat erectile dysfunction.

There are two of them:

  • traditional – medication and physiotherapy;
  • original – for example, using luminotherapy.

Luminotherapy can remove psychological “block”, which does not allow a man to relax, being in bed with a woman. It is known that by using certain spectra of light, you can get rid of ailments, officials barrier in sexual relations.

As prostate inflammation passes (or improved urination at adenoma), erection can also be improved, and that means change for better quality of human life.

As a result:

  • problems in family life disappear;
  • efficiency increases;
  • mood elevates;
  • optimism appears.

To restore erectile function is possible, even when the prostate gland is completely removed during radical prostatectomy – surgery, common in prostate cancer. A peculiarity of this operation is that it crosses surgeon during nerve plexus that are responsible for erection.

The later decision to take up this issue, the more intense fibrosis manifests in penile cavernous bodies and the more difficult it will be to restore former erection quality.

You start restoring erection as soon as possible after surgery, in such a case family life will be as harmonious as before. Urologist provides consultation with the patient and develops a comprehensive treatment for it, while maintaining the connection with an oncologist, supervising patient after surgery. Contrary to popular there is a belief, that recovery operation is associated with painful sensations. Rehabilitation in most cases takes place without pain. In international practice, it is necessary to begin restoration as soon as possible, immediately after discharge from the hospital, then chances of success will be higher.

Urologist usually uses time-tested modern treatment methods.

Erection problems may be observed, in those men who do not have BPH or prostatitis. In 40% of cases, the cause of erectile dysfunction is poor circulation in genital organs. There are hormonal reasons caused by age. And if earlier it was believed that menopause occurs only in women, but now it is proved that there is a male menopause. Currently, erectile dysfunction becomes “younger”, which is associated with a sedentary lifestyle of modern men.

To restore an erection by means of conservative, non-surgical way is possible in 80-90% of patients. But some patients are unresponsive to drugs. They are offered to fallo-prothesis or other methods of surgical correction. Such patients are referred to specialized clinics – where such operations are stamped out on an assembly line, and after they made the final restoring of sexual function.

It is possible to help to any patient, even for those who have prosthesis after the operation. Though such cases happen extremely rare, it can take place.
