Prostatitis in women: Yes or no?

Prostatitis means inflammation of the prostate gland, triggered by different factors, including infection. However, not all types of diseases caused by bacterial infection. In 90% of cases doctors diagnose non-bacterial prostatitis. Many men with this diagnosis are concerned that infection can be transmitted to their partners. Whether so it actually?

Prostatitis in women: it happens or not?

Only a small percentage of prostatitis is caused by Trichomonas or fungal infection (about 10%). Also, the disease can be triggered by other types of pathogens, such as mycoplasma and chlamydia. Because these pathogens can cause STDs, the infection will spread during intercourse women. Therefore, if prostatitis is caused by infections such as gonorrhea, Mycoplasma or chlamydia, patients should avoid close relations until, until treatment. In addition, you should ask the partner to undergo testing and, if necessary, get treatment.

Women sometimes prostatitis and transferred it to a woman? First of all, it should be noted that women do not get such diseases as prostatitis, as they have no prostate. As for the transmission, this question is impossible to answer “Yes” or “no”. You should know which type of prostatitis you have. As we said above, in 90% of cases the disease is not triggered by bacteria. Bacterial prostatitis occurs only in 10% of cases. If you do not have bacterial prostatitis, the infection is not transmitted to the woman.

The second side of the coin is that 10% of prostatitis caused by Trichomonas or fungal infection, other bacteria. In such cases, the infection is transmitted to your partner. Therefore, before proximity is necessary to consult a doctor, he will prescribe a treatment. A close relationship is forbidden as long as both partners will not fully recover.

When prostate infected by bacteria, they penetrate into the woman’s genitals in contact. In such cases, the pathogens can cause inflammation.

In women bacterial infections do not cause prostatitis. But they are able to cause many other health problems, including infertility, so do not come into contact until after treatment and passing secondary tests.

In bacterial prostatitis both men and women will have to refrain from intimacy until the end of treatment and completion of required tests. If both partners are infected, they should be treated at the same time.

As the results of the research, the chance of infecting the woman when the prostate is minimal. But still it is better to “err” and be sure to consult with your doctor.

No matter what type of prostatitis you have been diagnosed with, you have time to start treatment. In acute course of the disease are assigned to the mandatory antibiotics. But if they don’t work, the disease develops to the chronic. In chronic prostatitis it is necessary to strengthen the immune system, to give up bad habits, lead an active lifestyle, take a variety of medicines based on herbs. In General, symptoms of prostatitis with proper treatment disappear after 2-3 months.

Do women have a prostate and is transmitted? The question of interest to many. No, the disease of prostatitis is predominantly male for the reason that women don’t have prostates. Himself prostatitis is not transmitted but can be transmitted infection which has become a pathogen. It is therefore important to correctly and timely diagnose the type of prostatitis.
