Inflammation of the prostate gland with no infection is considered to be one of the most common forms of the disease. It is quite difficult to diagnose, and it is often identified accidentally in the course of examination for sterility or prostate cancer. In these cases high levels of leucocytes and prostate-specific antigen are observed in the seminal fluid.
The main symptoms of non-bacterial prostatitis include urination disorders, pain in pelvis and genitals, and impaired sexual function.
Treatment of the disease is always long-lasting and, unfortunately, it not always ensures positive effect, which results in possible remissions over some period of time.
Notwithstanding the absence of infection patients with non-bacterial prostatitis undergo a course of antibiotics. Rectal anti-inflammatory drugs are used to normalize the function of the prostate gland and reduce pain. Additional vitamins, immunomodulators and drugs for improvement of microcirculation are also used for management of non-bacterial prostatitis.
Along with drug therapy such physiotherapeutic methods as ultrasound, ionic medication, electromagnetic waves, therapeutic exercises, massage of prostate, and acupuncture are used as a cure for non-bacterial prostatitis.
