Alternate Names : Chronic Bacterial Prostatitis
What can be done to prevent the infection?
Any bladder outlet obstructions should be treated. This will reduce the amount of urine retained in the bladder after voiding. Urinary tract infections are then less likely to occur.
What are the long-term effects of the infection?
Prostatitis can certainly affect the person's quality of life. Otherwise, there are no serious long-term effects.
What are the risks to others?
Prostatitis is not a communicable disease, so sexual partners are not at risk.
