Post Normal prostate flora studies?
Lately I've been wondering if my recurring enterococcus faecalis may just be considered normal flora rather than a pathogen that needs to be treated with antibiotics.

I'm sure many of you have studies on bacteria found in patients with chronic pelvic pain, but are there any studies of bacteria found in HEALTHY patients prostate fluid? please post links if you have them. I'm worried that some of us here, myself included, are killing ourselves with long term use of antibiotics, trying to kill bacteria that aren't the real cause of our problems.

there is a study that showed that men without CPPS had similar bacterial flora in their prostate compared with men with CPPS. I will dig it up and post it later.

Thanks WS. I'm wondering if this includes enterococcus faecalis? Looking forward to your follow up post!

thanks WS.
if i read correctly, what that study indicated is that Burkholderia cenocepacia is overrepresented in urologic chronic pelvic pain syndrome, suggesting that this could cause CPPS.

potentially, yes. Bigger finding is that men WITHOUT CPPS also have all sort of bacteria in their prostate and have no issues.
