Acute and chronic prostatitis discussion. Arnon Krongrad, MD, moderator.
Hello everyone. I'm 23 year old single man suffering from prostatitis. Antibiotic treatment hasn't worked, and EPS procedure did give the diagnosis for prostatitis but the massage also worsened the symptoms quite a bit (no pain no gain I guess). I have trouble maintaining rigid erection which is quite uncommon for men at my age, which probably has sth to do with prostatitis. I've noticed that my semen has been watery more often than not. It does't come out in squirts instead it flows out. For sometime after the diagnosis it has also been stained with blood occasionally thus having an yellowish colour like urine. I haven't done a semen analysis yet but the outcome seems bleak at this point.
Suppose that I have bad sperm quality/count/motility etc which probably is the case, is sperm storage in a sperm bank for future IVF a possible option for me to father children after LRP?
