is a prostatic disease, usually implicated inflammatory lesions. The prostate gland is a purely male organ, so this disease can occur only in the stronger sex.

Prostatitis is a fairly common disease, for example, in the United States, about 8% of all urological problems are related to it. This disease lies at the basis of 1% of all initial calls to the doctor. Although prostatitis is treated, many men do not dare to see a doctor for help, because it involves very intimate areas.

You can not think that prostatitis is a natural phenomenon. It always hurts, and it’s rather difficult to prevent the disease. It is no accident that the disease, which is accepted to be silent, generates a lot of myths around itself.

Prostatitis should be urgently treated, because the prostate itself is the second heart of a man.

Although the disease does require treatment, it is wrong to believe that the prostate is a “second heart”. This opinion is too similar to the slogan of some pharmacological company. For the male physiology, the prostate is, of course, a very important organ, but there is no point in comparing it to the heart. Why not give the title of a second heart, say, a stomach? After all, through him, in particular, the path to the man’s heart is trampled. The prostate is a small organ, the size of a chestnut. His work has nothing to do with the heart muscle. Of course, you should not discard its important functions, but you should not connect the vital activity of the whole organism with the prostate. The connection between the prostate and the heart is just a turn of speech, and prostatitis is not a fatal disease at all.

This is not a disease at all, but a natural mechanism of aging.

According to this statement, prostatitis is a natural thing and no danger becomes. In fact, as a result of chronic prostatitis, pain and eruptions can occur when urinating, but even problems in intimate life can appear. Men may have an erection, have pain under orgasm or experience premature ejaculation. Disregard for one’s health can result in vesiculitis – inflammation of the seminal vesicles, as well as epidemohoritis – inflammation of the testicles and their appendages. Such consequences are much more dangerous, because they lead to infertility and impotence. These phenomena are not at all natural, besides they are very sensitive to the psyche of men.

Prostatitis is caused by bacteria, you can be treated yourself with antibiotics.

This previously referred to prostatitis for infectious diseases, applying antibiotics for treatment. Today, such funds are used only in acute forms. Indeed, the modern view of the disruptions in the work of the prostate has changed very much. It has already been proven that inflammation of the prostate caused by bacteria is quite rare, accounting for about 10% of the total number of cases. In the vast majority of cases, the cause is completely different, so antibiotics will not help here. It is already known that there is no universal medicine that alone can overcome prostatitis. Therefore, designate the whole complex, which includes antispasmodics, interferon drugs, other drugs. This series has both antiviral and immune effects. You can not do without a prostate massage, and the diet should exclude alcohol, spicy, sour, fried, salted and canned food.

Prostatitis is always accompanied by pain during urination and intercourse.

Actually, pain in urination is only observed in half the cases. And with intimacy, pain occurs even less often – in 5-10% of cases. The rest of the men may not even suspect about their disease. In addition to the acute form of prostatitis, there is also subacute, chronic, sluggish and even asymptomatic. In the latter case, failures will manifest in the violation of erection and premature ejaculation. In such cases, men usually refer to drugs designed to improve potency.Then how to actually treat it is necessary just the prostate gland.

Prostatitis can not be prevented.

To consider that there is no prophylaxis against prostatitis is wrong. After all, the main cause of prostate diseases is physiological. It consists in the excessive growth of tissue cells, of which this gland consists. This phenomenon is generally quite common for men over 35 years of age. But the development of the disease can provoke the man himself. To do this, you need to smoke, drink, have excess weight, lead a sedentary lifestyle, refuse sex, or, on the contrary, get fed up with it. Prostatitis can be caused by infections, constipation and stress. The simplest prophylaxis is connected with the ordering of the diet and life, taking care of your health. Especially it is necessary to be afraid of those infections which are passed sexual by. Doctors say that every third patient with prostatitis in his smear has chlamydia, gardnerella and other infections. Conversely, it is noted that men, “pure” in this aspect, suffer much less from diseases of the prostate gland. Thus, it turns out that the main prophylaxis against prostatitis is simple fidelity to one sexual partner, or, at worst, mandatory use of a condom.

Chronic prostatitis can not be cured.

Although it is impossible to completely overcome such a form, it is quite possible to restrain its development. To prevent the disease from breaking out again, it is best to completely give up alcohol and smoking after the treatment for a period of 2 to 6 months. It is best to change your habits – to start an active lifestyle, walk 2-3 kilometers a day on foot, start playing sports, more to appear on fresh age, to remove stress from your life and, of course, to have regular sex.

Sick prostatitis is forbidden.

Doctors say that quite the opposite! Regular sexual life is an integral part of medical procedures. You can remember about such a tool as massage of the prostate gland. But this rather unpleasant and painful procedure is required only for those men who for some reason renounced their commitment to lead a sexual life. After all, for the prostate the best massage is a normal ejaculation, nothing better and did not come up. Full sexual contact is much more effective than the massage. The ban on sex life in the treatment of prostatitis was practiced several decades ago, since then the views of doctors have changed quite a lot.

Prostatitis is treated quickly.

The treatment process directly depends on the state of the immune system. If it is weakened, the period of recovery may be prolonged. But for initially healthy men who have strong immunity, even the longest therapy, used, for example, against chlamydia, can take only a few weeks. After that, maintenance therapy is prescribed. As a result, after 2-3 months, in extreme cases after 4, the man completely gets rid of prostatitis.

The cause of prostatitis is hypothermia.

This statement is not entirely true. If there are some other factors contributing to the appearance of prostatitis – stasis in the veins, chronic infections, etc., then hypothermia can play a decisive role. But in itself, she can not cause chronic prostatitis. Nevertheless, it is better to avoid bathing in cold spring water, and ice-fishing masters should not forget about warm pants. It is worth remembering that with chronic prostatitis, especially during treatment, any hypothermia is extremely undesirable, since they can disrupt the entire course of treatment.

Prostatitis is in general for all men, it is not worth treating such a trifle to a urologist. This is not a disease at all.

Do not go to extremes. Prostatitis is a very specific disease. Its acute form, though rare, but has its symptoms, is accompanied by pain and fever. The chronic form is much more common.Although it is often not accompanied by bright symptoms, it can lead to serious damage to the prostate and some organs of the genitourinary system.

Diagnosis of prostatitis is quite simple.

To do this, a finger examination of the urologist is enough. To get a complete picture, you need to evaluate many criteria. These are laboratory results of blood and urine tests, ultrasound with a rectal sensor, which makes it possible to see the structure of the prostate, bacterial culture, and the same finger examination. It is best if the examination is conducted and related specialists, for example, a neurologist. The fastest and most comprehensive diagnosis is possible in specialized clinics.

Prostate massage is able to cure the disease.

Few people know, but by itself, finger massage can be quite dangerous. It can be painful and traumatic, promote the transfer of infection from infected areas to healthy ones. Currently, the treatment is using more sparing and effective procedures of physiotherapy. For example, pneumovibrator. In parallel with him apply and medicamental treatment, physiotherapy, homeopathy and acupuncture. A patient with a chronic form of the disease needs regular supervision from one of his doctors. This will help quickly respond to the onset of an exacerbation, making every effort to reduce the consequences of an attack.
