Chronic Epididymitis

Chronic Epididymitis | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

What can be done to prevent the condition?

Because the exact cause is not known, prevention is hard. Preventing acute epididymitis may reduce the risk. Acute epididymitis is often a sexually transmitted disease, or STD. Using safer sex can help prevent STDs. However, some men get chronic epididymitis without having these risk factors.

What are the long-term effects of the condition?

Chronic epididymitis may cause chronic pain. However, it has no other serious long-term effects.

What are the risks to others?

Chronic epididymitis is not contagious. It poses no risk to others.
