Seminal vesiculitis and prostatitis are the most common diseases in andrology, and the position of the seminal vesicle is very close to that of the prostate. So, it is easy for men to have these two diseases simultaneously.

But many males do not understand the difference between chronic seminal vesiculitis and prostatitis and do not know how to prevent them in life.

Is seminal vesiculitis the same as prostatitis?

1. The seminal vesicle is closely related to the anatomical and physiological function of the prostate. The route of infection, clinical symptoms, and diagnostic methods will also be very similar. And seminal vesiculitis and prostatitis will also be interrelated. In the process of chronic development, the two will often exist and influence each other, so the identification of prostatitis is challenging.

2. Seminal vesiculitis and prostatitis are like brothers in need. They will affect each other. According to relevant statistics, 87.5% of patients with chronic bacterial prostatitis can be found by vas deferens and seminal vesicle angiography. Both are at the root of the penis, resulting in perineum swelling discomfort, frequent urination, urination discomfort, and so on. However, prostatitis is often associated with urethral whitening, and seminal vesiculitis can often have the phenomenon of blood essence.

3. The incidence rate of seminal vesicle inflammation and prostatitis is different. Prostatitis is higher, and seminal vesicle inflammation is lower. In terms of clinical symptoms, prostatitis has prostate-related symptoms, and seminal vesiculitis is mainly hematospermia. Prostatitis is examined for abnormal changes in prostatic fluid and pathogens. Seminal vesiculitis is the presence of semen abnormalities or pathogens. Sometimes it can not completely distinguish prostatitis from seminal vesiculitis clinically, which is collectively referred to as abdominal adenitis.

Chronic seminal vesiculitis can cause hemospermia, mainly because of the thin seminal vesicle wall. Once bacteria infect it, it is easy to cause infection near the prostate or urethra. Long-term congestion will rupture capillaries, and blood will enter semen, resulting in pink or red semen.

What are the main symptoms of seminal vesiculitis?

1. Pain: perineal pain can occur at the onset of the disease. And the pain can be extended. The pain is exacerbated when men are tired or have sex.

2. Dysuria: chronic seminal vesiculitis will generally cause lesions of adjacent organs, especially urethral infection. Patients will typically have frequent micturition, urgent micturition, and incomplete micturition. Sometimes the urination is accompanied by a burning feeling, which greatly impacts patients.

3. Blood essence: chronic seminal vesiculitis is caused by retrograde bacterial infection. Bacterial infection or seminal vesiculitis causes local congestion, leading to capillary rupture, blood entering semen, and blood essence during ejaculation. Semen can appear pink or red blood clots.

4. Sexual dysfunction: due to the particularity of male physiological structure, the incidence of seminal vesiculitis will lead to the infection of adjacent organs, such as prostatitis, orchitis, and other diseases, which often lead to sexual dysfunction diseases such as premature ejaculation, spermatorrhea, and low sexual desire.

Prostatitis is characterized by urethral irritation and chronic pelvic pain. The main symptoms include pain, which can occur in the perineum or the penis. Urinary tract irritation symptoms, such as frequent, urgent urination, incomplete urination, etc. After some patients get sick, they will have poor sleep due to the heavy psychological burden and even affect their sexual function.

Seminal vesicle inflammation and prostatitis are two common infectious diseases in the urinary system. They have a particular relationship. Some patients with seminal vesiculitis can cause prostatitis. And prostatitis may also cause seminal vesiculitis. Therefore, many patients with these two diseases can exist simultaneously.

Hence, patients need to pay enough attention to seminal vesiculitis and prostatitis. It is suggested that patients go to regular hospitals in time at an early stage and receive standard treatment to achieve better results.

Patients with prostatitis should first do a bacterial culture of prostatic fluid and drug sensitivity tests. According to the results of this examination, find the pathogenic bacteria and antibiotics sensitive to the pathogenic bacteria, and then select sensitive antibiotics for treatment.

In patients with seminal vesiculitis, use an appropriate amount of antibiotics for treatment. If it is acute seminal vesiculitis, it can be cured by using drugs for 1 ~ 2 weeks after the symptoms disappear. At the same time, anti-inflammatory drugs should be used continuously to consolidate efficacy.

If the patient still has blood essence after antibiotics treatment, he needs to take some particular drugs to treat blood essence. At the same time, patients should stay in bed, do less activity and avoid strenuous exercise.

If the effect of drug treatment is not particularly good, and there is prostatitis simultaneously, men can choose natural medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill for treatment.

In addition to drug treatment, patients should focus on light and digestible diet, not eat spicy and stimulating food and alcohol. Patients with seminal vesiculitis should avoid sex during treatment, and patients with prostatitis can have moderate sex appropriately.
