A man with prostatitis at a urologist's appointment

Prostatitis in men can take two forms: acute or chronic. In the first case, inflammation of the prostate gland develops rapidly. This form of prostatitis is indicated by severe symptoms. The main symptoms are pain, delayed urination. Toilet disturbances can occur up to 6 times in an hour, and urine will be excreted in small amounts. In this case, an unpleasant sensation in the lower abdomen and perineum, cramps and a burning sensation may appear. The acute stage of prostate inflammation is also accompanied by erectile dysfunction and fever with inherent symptoms (weakness, headache, etc. ).

The next form of prostatitis is chronic, which differs from the first stage in the degree of severity of the weaker clinical signs. In this case, the body temperature is within normal limits, but the man's sexual activity decreases.

Principles of treatment

First aid for acute prostatitis should be given only by a medical professional.Self -medication is strictly prohibited. Pain relievers can be used to relieve severe pain. But it is desirable before a doctor's examination there is no way that can cause vague clinical signs.

In a hospital setting, doctors conduct antibacterial and detoxification therapies. Painkillers, antispasmodics and anti-inflammatory drugs are used. Only after relief of acute symptoms and a decrease in the intensity of clinical signs, patients were given physiotherapy and massage procedures.

Prostate massage

With chronic prostatitis, which develops against a background of lifestyle and congestion in the small pelvis, the patient requires a prostate massage. It allows the contents of the prostate gland to be drained through the ducts to the bladder. This allows you to reduce the size of the organ, as a result of which it stops pressing on the urethra and frees the lumen to excrete urine, greatly facilitating the condition of the man.

In the acute stage, this action is contraindicated, as it can only exacerbate the course of the disease.

A man should treat chronic prostatitis at home using an integrated approach. To do this, he needs to take medication prescribed by a doctor, and he can also use special training to get rid of congestion and folk remedies.


Mandatory antibacterial treatment is made not only for acute inflammation, but also for chronic prostatitis, which is provoked by the bacterial flora. With the help of antibiotic therapy, you can get rid of the disease in a short time, but you need to follow the scheme of its use and dosage of the drug. In the acute stage of prostatitis, a man is given an intravenous or intramuscular injection for a more rapid effect on the bacterial flora. In the treatment of chronic forms of the disease, tablets or suppositories are used. The latter has less effect on the liver, but is no less effective than tablets.

With inflammation of the prostate gland, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are often used. They help relieve symptoms of poisoning, pain and eliminate inflammatory foci. They come in the form of oral tablets and rectal suppositories. The second option is more appropriate, because the rectum is located near the inflamed prostate, therefore it has a local effect on the focus of the disease.

For severe pain, antispasmodics and painkillers are used. The first group helps relieve muscle spasms from internal organs. They relax the smooth muscles of the prostate gland. To prevent cramps, alpha blockers are also used. There are special rectal suppositories with analgesic effect.

To increase blood circulation in the small pelvis with congestion, venotonic drugs are used.

For the treatment and prevention of chronic prostatitis, herbal preparations are used. A similar effect is given by drugs from bovine prostate extract.

All medications presented are provided for informational purposes only.The final decision on the scheme and duration of treatment is made by the attending physician.Self -treatment is not recommended, as all drugs have their own contraindications.


If prostatitis is provoked by an inflammatory process, and not an infection, then the reason for this is a disruption of blood supply to the muscle tissue around the prostate gland. You can restore blood circulation effectively by exercising. The most effective are squats.

For starters, test gymnastics is performed. To do this, stretch your arms straight above your head and do deep squats. If you can sit at least 50 times without causing pain in the legs, this is a good result. On the other hand shows muscle weakness and insufficient blood supply to the pelvic organs, including the prostate.

Squats are done 3 times a week. One workout includes 3 sets per 50 reps. There was a 3 minute break between them. To increase the amount of squats, other exercises are recommended:

  • sit on the floor, place your hands behind your back and do a crossing motion with your legs, like scissors, 20 times;
  • lie on your stomach and lift your straight legs 20 times.

Along with this exercise, you can use the following:

  1. Lie on your back, bend your legs to your knees and press to your chest until your knees are as close as possible to your face. You should grip your legs with your hands and remain in this position for 5-20 minutes. The effect depends on the duration of the workout, but you should not lie down for more than 20 minutes.
  2. In the morning after waking up, massage the perineum for 5 minutes. This will help eliminate the stagnation in the prostate gland that arises at night.
  3. Stand on your feet, put them together, sit with 1/3 and move the knees alternately backwards in this position. Exercise should also be done before breakfast for 5 minutes. It can be repeated in the evening.
