The primary function of the prostate is the secretory function. The prostate will secrete prostatic fluid during sexual life. The role of prostatic fluid includes scouring the urethra and lubricating the external genitalia. Prostatic fluid is the main component of semen and contains enzymes that liquefy semen. The secretory function of the prostate has problems. When semen cannot be liquefied, it will have a specific impact on male reproduction.
Will prostate fluid flow lead to pregnancy?
The probability of pregnancy caused by the prostatic fluid is small. The male urethral orifice often adheres to secretions. In addition to prostatic fluid, this component also has the possibility of semen.
Because the sperm is in the seminal vesicle or the prostate urethra, it is often hidden here and has a long survival time. Therefore, to avoid the risk and the pregnancy preparation state, the doctor suggests taking effective contraceptive measures when having sex.
Many factors are affecting the secretion of prostatic fluid:
Age. Young men with better prostate function are vulnerable to external stimulation. It is normal to secrete prostate fluid at this time.
It is related to external factors, such as drinking, spicy diet, and sedentary, which will lead to increased secretion of prostate fluid;
It is related to inflammation. The secretion of prostatic fluid will be accompanied by symptoms such as urethral itching and dysuria.
It is recommended to stop sexual life for 3-5 days before the prostate fluid test. The secretion of prostate fluid in the body is sufficient, which is the best time for examination. It is not recommended to take prostatic fluid for analysis after abstinence for one day. At this time, the generation of prostatic fluid is insufficient, leading to the inability to take out prostatic fluid.
Some patients with prostatitis will have the phenomenon of urethral drip white, which is the prostatic fluid. Inside the prostate, prostatitis leads to congestion and edema of the prostate. Prostate fluid will flow out of the prostate gland tube, pass through the posterior urethra, enter the anterior urethra to the external orifice of the urethra, and appear clear, transparent, and filiform fluid, which belongs to prostate fluid. It can also occur in normal adults.
But patients with prostatitis still need active treatment. If the patient has been diagnosed with a bacterial infection, some antibiotics can be used. Cephalosporins are very common.
For nonbacterial infections, herbal patent medicines with the effects of clearing away heat, detoxification, diuresis, and drenching can be used, such as Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill. For a few patients, they may require surgery.
What are the hazards of prostatitis ?
1. Affect sexual function
Prostatitis may cause impotence and premature ejaculation. Because the disease has not been cured for a long time, various symptoms and discomfort aggravate after sexual intercourse or directly affect the feeling and quality of sexual life. It will cause a malignant stimulation to patients and gradually show a sense of disgust toward sex, leading to impotence, premature ejaculation, and other phenomena.
2. Easy to cause infection
The human prostate contains an antibacterial substance called a prostate antibacterial factor. When the anterior column gland is inflamed, this antibacterial factor is reduced, which is easy to cause infection. Infection caused by prostatitis can lead to acute urinary retention, seminal vesicle inflammation or epididymitis, vasculitis, spermatic cord lymph node enlargement, or tenderness. Severe inguinal pain or renal colic may occur.
3. Infect the partner and cause gynecological inflammation
Prostatitis can be transmitted to partners, especially prostatitis caused by some particular bacterial infection. Its inflammation can be transmitted through sexual intercourse, such as fungal prostatitis, trichomonal prostatitis, gonococcal prostatitis, non-gonococcal prostatitis, etc.
4. Lead to endocrine disorders
It can cause mental disorders. Under normal circumstances, the prostate can secrete a variety of active substances. Because the prostate produces inflammation, an endocrine disorder can cause neurasthenia, resulting in abnormal spirit. Insomnia and dreaminess, fatigue, dizziness, slow thinking, memory loss, and other symptoms can also occur.
5. Cause chronic nephritis
If prostatitis is not treated in time, it can lead to benign prostatic hyperplasia and compress the bladder outlet. Men can not empty the urine, and residual urine appears. Residual urine is a suitable culture medium for bacterial reproduction. In addition, the defense mechanism of bladder mucosa is damaged, so it is easy to lead to urinary tract infections, such as pyelonephritis. At this time, if the treatment is not complete, pyelonephritis and hydronephrosis will develop into nephritis and finally uremia.
6. Affect fertility
Long-term chronic inflammation changes the composition of prostatic fluid, affects the secretory function of the prostate, and then affects the liquefaction time of semen, reduces sperm motility, and can lead to male infertility.
After understanding prostatitis, I hope men can do a good job in preventing prostatitis diseases in life. After suffering from the disease, men should also pay attention to active treatment to avoid too many hazards.
