I have now had prostatitis for going on 7 years. I'm trying to understand how I could have gotten such a condition. I had urinary blockage issues, bph and at the end bladder stones for many years. I also had urinary retension which caused these problems. My flow rate was only 3.2 cc/ sec. I also had a sexual encounter at the beginning of my problems with unprotected sex.
Could this have brought on the prostatitis. My Dr. said no and I was soo uncomfortable that he did a TURP. This was also done at the outset of my condition. All I want to know is the truth. Was this prostatitis brought on by the unprotected sex or was it the result of the BPH. I tested negative 7 years ago for any std's The bladder stones were causing me much pain. My Dr says that he thinks it was the infected residual urine that I had had which he thinks may have gone down into my prostate and caused the prostatitis or infection. I'm getting wary of this condition and only want to know the truth. Could the infection from the bladder stones have traveled down into the prostate and brought on my condition? I have not spoken to the woman in many years and wonder if this breif affair with her could have brought this on or was it caused by my miserable BPH which was very bad at the time to the point of my bladder retaining much of my residual urine.
