Contagious prostatitis or not. What diseases it can cause.

Prostatitis is an actual problem of modern man. Many prefer to ignore problems until this is possible, but in vain. The sooner treatment begins, the more effective it will be. The issues related to inflammatory disease of the prostate concern for men and women. And one of those important questions – prostatitis is contagious.

The prostate inflammation is not contagious disease which occurs as a result of effects on the body men many adverse factors. The view that the disease can be transmitted through unprotected sexual act or even in public places, absolutely not justified.

Of course, during the exacerbation, in the urogenital organs, men actively breed a variety of microorganisms. However, their appearance cannot be related to the incident of sexual contact.

Danger to women

For men the main issue during the aggravation – which mode of sexual life to choose. Most are afraid to infect your partner. Obviously, to infect a woman by the prostatitis is impossible, however the experts disagree about whether such a sexual act to influence the emergence of women's specific diseases.

The most frequently associated diseases such as prostatitis, cystitis. Both is in its essence an inflammatory process, which may be in some cases caused by pathogenic microflora. In men, the disease is sometimes complicated by cystitis or gradually it becomes. But even in this case, danger to partner, no.

Sexually transmitted only sexually transmitted diseases. Inflammation of the urinary organs and ways, if caused by bacteria, such which can't be transferred to partner during sex.

Example – E. coli. It is often the cause of cystitis in men and women, but the possibility of sexual transmission has not been proven. So it's safe to say that in terms of infection cystitis and prostatitis unrelated.

Dangerous bacteria

In rare cases, prostatitis is caused by organisms such as Staphylococcus aureus or chlamydia. In this case this is a contagious disease. Chlamydia by itself refers to the list of sexually transmitted infections, and staphylococci are opportunistic pathogens.

Lets look at a few diseases prostatitis aureus. The bacteria Staphylococcus can live in a sufficient amount in the human body.

While the immune system in order and performs its protective function, the bacteria cannot start to multiply. To create a colony and harm the body. With constant exposure of negative factors on the body, startslose bacteria.

In this case, the prostatitis can cause Staphylococcus. If left untreated this type of disease, there is a danger to not only infect the sexual partners. Child one of whose parents was sick like a bacterial disease, is exposed to serious danger, not only for health but also for life.


There is such a thing as prostatitis Trichomonas. By themselves, Trichomonas are the microorganisms that are typical for the female of pathogenic microflora, i.e., the source of infection is likely to be a woman.

In the genital tract of men Trichomonas almost immediately die, but if weakened immunity not only survive, but also contribute to infection with chlamydia, gonococcus, Gardnerella.

In this case, it is rather a concomitant disease. When infection with Trichomonas in 20% of cases there is a risk of occurrence of chronic prostatitis or urethritis. The disease may for a long time can proceed without symptoms, but would be passed to all sexual partners.

To treat prostatitis caused by bacteria, sexually transmitted infections using antibiotics and antimicrobials. Prostatitis and trihopol – classic therapeutic combination, if diagnosed with prostatitis Trichomonas.

Treatment courses Beadle trichopolum, and any other similar preparation, should be of sexual partners jointly, or to the exclusion of sexual intercourse until complete recovery. So you can avoid infection, but not by the prostate, namely venereal disease. Contraception in this case can be seen as a prevention of prostatitis.

Trihopol very effective, but to self-medicate in any case impossible. If prostatitis is caused by bacteria, its treatment is difficult, and uncontrolled use of antibiotics will only complicate the task of the expert.

Despite all these arguments, we must remember that the man, patient prostatitis, necessary sex. Fluid should not stagnate, and reduction of the pelvis during orgasm are a great massage. During treatment, if confirmed by the presence of dangerous bacteria, you need to use protection. If the disease is caused by other reasons, it is not contagious.
