Pain in the lower abdomen, at the perineum or in the bladder area, urine drainage disorders, frequent urge to urinate with simultaneous pain or burning sensations during urination and ejaculation, but also bacterial infections with chills and fever. If you suspect you may have this problem, consult a specialist immediately! The longer the symptoms persist, the greater the risk that the inflammation will become chronic.
The causes of chronic prostatitis are often psychological. Stress, anxiety or problems can cause pain in the pelvic region and tension in the pelvic muscles. Building rest and relaxation periods into your day, and maintaining them, can help here. Care should also be taken to avoid the cold. 'Icy feet', chills and sitting on cold floors can lead to insufficient blood circulation in the lesser pelvis and to an increase in bacteria – prostatitis is imminent! Heavy stress on the pelvic floor (e.g., horse riding, cycling) must be avoided. An active sex life is also effective: As a result of ejaculation, the prostate gland is better supplied with blood and germs are carried out. It's also important to drink a lot. Suitable options are water, fruit and herbal teas and juice spritzers. And a healthy lifestyle helps not only the prostate!
