a physical sensation does not prove infection, Dom. Many different problems can lead to a feeling of irritation, burning ect that can be wrongfully attributed to infection. It could easily be a nerve issue and have absolutely nothing to do with the prostate. There are plenty of stories here and elsewhere of men getting their prostates removed and being left worse off than when they started. I am quite surprised you have found a doctor who will remove your prostate when you are in your 20-30s. Unless you have a positive test from a doctor who knows what they are doing, you can't say for sure you have an infection - a "feeling" is not enough to take such extreme measures in my opinion.

Yea, I've had E. Faecalis show up in China, Greece, Georgia (country) and, USA (Labcorp)...twice.

I don't approve those other countries' methods or endorse ANY of them, but their testing has been proven on point and correct multiple times. I also have significant calcification. We all tell ourselves there is no infection, I know, I did it for years. I've had 0 pain the entire time I've been infected. It's all been burning, redness, frequent urination --- all common signs of infection. And yet I've been told by countless urologists there is no infection (including "top" uro in Cleveland Clinic -- what a joke he was -- didn't even want to run a lab on me).

NO man, NONE, wants to walk around knowing he has an infection in his private parts. So we come up with ways to cope with, invent stuff like CPPS etc. No Urologist wants to tell a man they are screwed. So I think Urologists have come up with a self coping mechanism for themselves too, telling patients "There's nothing wrong with you " and buying into the non bacterial crap blah blah. It's probably better to make a man think its all in his head than telling them they have an infection in their private parts that is life long.

I'm not here to convince anyone of anything, nor do I want to. We can all choose to deal with these things as we want. I would prefer to do something about this rather than come back to this forum for years and continue to lie to myself the next supplement is going to save me. I've spoken to people who have had this surgery in another European country, done by one of the top surgeons in the country. I will not discuss his name, as I am not here to advertise anyone. They are the happiest people I've ever spoken to with this condition. Much happier than people who believe they have CPPS, and you can tell they've moved on with their lives. Unlike us. If I'm writting this, and you are reading this, clearly you haven't moved on and the CPPS prognosis is not helping your life in any way.

And let me tell you, just because you are not passing anything on to your partner does not mean you don't have an infection. I've spoken to people who had proven infections and went on to have kids, no problems with wives. A lot of the bacteria we end up many times does nothing to our female partners, that's how we got in the first place. The partner had no idea she had this common flora that screwed us over. Others will report they suffer reinfections each time they have sex with wives. The writting is on the wall, its about if we choose to believe it. I can probably go on living a miserable life in the CPPS bubble, but I choose not to. When you speak to a 65 year old man who suffered since his 30s, and is now the happiest person on earth running every day at 65 (even though both of his wives left him long ago due to the condition and he still cries every night), and you are sitting miserable at your laptop typing on some forum...there is something very wrong. And yes, this person had his removed.

There seems some correlation between CPPS and our jobs (prostatitis has been called "Truckers Disease" because it was triggered by long periods of sitting and stress). Was wondering if your job entails a lot of sitting, standing, stress, lifting, ect.

I don't think that is my case. Sometimes I spend a lot of time sitting, but I have tried a lot of walking and exercise other periods of time and there are no significant changes. As I said, my burning sensation is mainly when ejaculating and urinating, I don't experience chronic pain the rest of the day. That's why I think it's not a muscular/nervous problem. It seems more "biochemical". I don't see how being sitting a lot of time can lead to low libido and low sexual arousal problems either.

I have started today the Yohimbe. I haven't had any bad side effects.

I'm still not sure if it was the antidepressants I took years ago what leaved my prostate unbalanced and led somehow to chronic prostatitis. The symptoms remind me to what I suffered when I was taking them. What I feel when ejaculating is pretty similar. Yohimbe is said to counteract the libido/orgasm problems caused by some antidepressants and also help with prostatitis, so I guess that in some cases it could be related. My theory is that those antidepressants mess with your prostate and weakens it, making it vulnerable to infections.

Hope this helps because after this I don't know what else I can try.

I was taking this stuff for a while, ashwagandha and rhodiola, it made me super horny like I haven’t been since I was like 17. I was trying this for the nerve pain I get, but I thought it could be relevant. There is also St. John’s wort, cordyceps, shilajit, and panax ginseng that are all supposed to give a mans sex drive a boost. These things are under rated on the whole, although it’s still often hard to find something that really works for your specific situation.

I was reading about a cure for immune deficiency disorder today that uses a virus to replace a missing gene. I think this modern medicine can be pretty cool, but they’re only good at about 15% of diseases, anything complex and chronic they just fail completely and miserably most of the time. The mainstream think modern medicine is super advanced, but it isn’t really, it’s only 70 years old approximately and it is not very holistic. When they can cure complex chronic conditions like fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis, then we can say it is advanced, now they just try to suppress the symptoms and fail a lot of the time. But maybe to do this they need to take the whole person into account, the mind and psychology, the gut, as well as the main symptoms, and potentially draw from the world of natural healing as well as from pharmaceutical companies.

I took rodhiola and didn't feel nothing special. I haven't tried ashwagandha yet.

All the supplements I try are like taking nothing. I don't notice anything special, like if they were water. Even the bad side effects that I read in some reviews on the internet. I really want to notice something at least.

Did you take rodhiola, ashwagandha and yohimbe all together?

No I took ashwagandha, rhodiola, and St. John's wort, this is when the crazy sex drive was going on, quite unpleasant. These things sometimes work for people, other people their biochemistry is different and they don't work. Ashwagandha it needs to be about a month to get the sex drive effect, anxiety it should work like the same day, I take about 1.2 grams of this ksm66 stuff a day. You can probably mix them together like that, maybe you will grow a big beard or something haha.

Post Re: My story, chronic prostatitis associated with weak orgas
I ask because I can't take several supplements. I'm very short of money. Do you think that it was something specific what caused the libido to increase? Could it be the ashwagandha?

I have been years with a very low libido, so I can't imagine what that "crazy sex drive" you mention would be. I'm feeling that in my case is very difficult to restore my normal libido, so that "crazy sex drive" would be welcome rather than annoying, lol.

Today is the second day taking yohimbe (31.25 mgs) and I can't notice anything. Maybe it is something that changes after weeks? I have read reviews from people talking about nasty side effects and a libido increase but I think that they took a very high dosage without responsibility (250 mgs I read in one case if I don't remember bad!). I'm desperate but I also are very prone to anxiety, so I would never do something like that. I prefer slow and safety over fast and dangerous.

I would give it a month, whatever herb you try. I don't know much about yohimbe. It feels like a frustrating slow process trying all this stuff, but eventually sometimes you get there.

Ashwagandha is good for this kind of problem, I would try that. Typically though these herbs work better in teams and using pairs (2 at a time) is a very good approach to something like this. The ones I would consider for low sex drive and erection issues are; ashwagandha, panax ginseng, St. John's wort, cordyceps, shilajit, and rhodiola and schisandra as well.

Yohimbe is said to counteract the orgasm/libido problems caused by some psychiatric drugs. I also read that it's good for prostatitis.

I don't know how to interpret this but these days I'm feeling the urination and ejaculation more painful. It happened also when I took some antibiotics. I don't know if that means that it is removing some bacterias or not. The antibiotics at least didn't work at the long term.

I'm thinking about trying the ashwaghanda too. But this month I don't have any money for that.

The St. John's wort (hipérico here) is something that I tried for depression years ago and I don't remember a libido boost.

It's hard to me to think that a prostatitis, alone by itself, can be causing this lack of libido and sexual arousal. I think that I have something unbalanced that has got chronical and is doing some kind of bad feedback with the prostatitis. It seems that the only way here is trial and error.

Post Re: My story, chronic prostatitis associated with weak orgas
Yes, I did try all those herbs I mentioned previously over the past 1.5 years for nerve pain. I think I get some moderate benefit for that from ashwagandha and St. John's wort together, but not from the rest. I did have all kinds of interesting experiences during this time, like panax ginseng gave me amazing vivid dreams and helped clear my mind.

I'm trying another homeopath now because it seems I have tried most herbs I wanted to try and was not getting anywhere, except making myself overly randy... I'd guess it wasn't going anywhere very positive. Not sure if this new person will help, but as you say, I guess we just try stuff and see where we end up...... No other choice really.

Post Re: My story, chronic prostatitis associated with weak orgas
After 22 days taking yohimbe there is no significant improvement.

One morning I had an erection after waking up which lasted more than 5 minutes without calming down and I feared about it being priapism. After masturbating it calmed down. That made me remember what actually a normal erection (without stimulation) was like. It actually was normal but I interpreted it as priapism because I haven't had that for years. I do have sometimes morning erections but they usually calm down after 1 minute or 2 (if they last so "long"). That one was weird. But that was only one day. I wonder why because the dosage is always the same. I have tried raising the dosage to 2 pills some days but oddly enough that day I had took only one. What factors made that happen is a mistery. However, when I masturbated the orgasm was not normal. It was not as weak as always but it was not as it must be.

The rest of the time is just as always. An average low libido + weak orgasms which can increase or decrease apparently "randomly". I haven't noticed any libido or orgasm improvement which I can attribute to yohimbe except that morning weird erection. But why only one time in 22 days?

Today I have masturbated after 4 days of abstinence and it has been awful. 4 days of abstinence taking a supplement which is supposed to be aphrodisiacal and not noticing anything special is something what makes me thing about a chronic infection. I don't know what else it can be. The orgasm has been weak, as always, even burning. The erection is not weak if you keep stimulating the penis but as soon as you stop it calms down, the glans soon deflates. That is not what you would expect in that situation. More semen came out, yes, but without force, like if the ducts are swelled or clogged somehow. And it is specially thick, with curdles that you can even grab with your fingers. Getting this after 4 days of abstinence and taking yohimbe is quite depressing. I mean, if that doesn't make my libido rise what can I do?

On the other side I wonder how a chronic infection can last so long and make my libido and orgasms so weakened. It seems an infection because the burning, but why it fluctuates is a mistery.

And after almost 2 months of having controlled the IBS I'm again with semi-diarrhea. I don't know if that is related because when I have these episodes of IBS the anus and the perineum feels burning and hot and I have the sensation that if I masturbate during that time the orgasms are weaker and they burn more. But on the other side, when I was 2 months without those problems my libido and orgasms didn't improved at all. So, not sure of how is this related. Maybe the IBS is not the cause but it makes it worse.

I was doing a diet without grain, except rice, and then I craved a lot for bread. So I took ryegrass bread and it was ok for weeks. So I thought that I could include that in my diet. Now, I'm having IBS episodes again and I don't know what the cause is. I thought it was the honey I took the other day with an infusion, but I have quit the honey for days and I'm still having days with semi-diarrhea intermitently. IBS gives me a lot of anxiety, specially if I can't find the cause. I don't know if a should stop the ryegrass bread until this calms down. I was glad with the ryegrass bread because I thought that I had found something to include bread in my diet. Everytime I quit bread, after weeks or months I feel that I miss something badly. I'm not still sure if bread makes my intestines inflame or not. After 2 months avoiding IBS and with normal feces, without anxiety for it, this is depressing. I'm living alone with no support and when I see changes in my feces I start to think about grave diseases that I don't want to mention. I know that that is irrational, in fact, I should be used to those episodes but this situation of loneliness and abandonment makes me prone to anxiety.

I don't have a clue of what the hell is happening in my body. IBS + low libido and weak orgasms is making me very depressed. I can't really grasp the causes and that is a source of anxiety.

Post Re: My story, chronic prostatitis associated with weak orgas
Searching in Google about IBS and chronic prostatitis I have found several studies that suggest that in some cases can be related. One talks about a group of men being treated 12 months with Rifaximin and the VSL3 probiotic. I took the Rifaximin in the past but not so long. I concluded that it didn't work. I also took probiotics but not with the Rifaximin. Maybe combined and taking them for a long period it would help?

Now, what I'm wondering is what is the final cause. Is the chronic prostatitis causing the IBS episodes or is the opposite?

Yesterday I had a very painful ejaculation. These days I'm having IBS so it definitely seems related. My ejaculations usually feel more burning and my erections more painful while an IBS episode. I'm almost sure that this is a infection but I don't know if it is a gut microbiota unbalance affecting the prostate or a prostate infection affecting the gut.

I'm anxious because I suspect that all of this started in Japan. The environment change affected me somehow and I got some nasty infection which is still in my body causing problems. But I don't know what to do. The other day I came across a book with the title: "Toxic Archipelago: A History of Industrial Disease in Japan". I'm going to read it but I'm scared that it can cause me anxiety. Maybe I find something in the book which makes me think that my body got intoxicated there chronically and I won't know what doctor can help me. Because if I tell that to a doctor surely he/she won't take me seriously. Who knows if I have some toxic metals in my body, or something else, or a nasty bacteria... I was living in a very dirty environment in the beginning. I got allergy and asthma that time. I suspect that that is when my health problems started, 17 years ago, in Japan.

If I could trust at least one specialist to guide me... I would do all kind of cultures or analysis to rule out what is happening. Any insights?

Post Re: My story, chronic prostatitis associated with weak orgas
I have been searching in the ncbi site by chronic prostatitis and enterococcus faecalis and there are several studies that suggest that it is a pathogen in the prostate. I say this because I have seen in this forum threads where some people said that maybe it is normal flora. It's not. Enterecoccus faecalis should not be in the semen or urine.

One of the studies says that fluoroquinolones work in many cases. I have taken the levofloxacin and the ciprofloxacin and none worked. Other studies talk about phage therapy. But I haven't found any study questioning if enterocococcus faecalis is pathogenic in the prostate or not.

I have made that search because these days I'm having a flare-up. I masturbated yesterday before sleeping and it hurted a lot. The semen that came out was almost solid. And today, when I have waked up the zone was very burning and my pelvis muscles slightly hurt. The burning is typical of an infection. I have been asking myself if this is an infection or not for years, but after viewing those studies I'm almost sure that this is a chronic infection. The symptoms that I'm suffering these days suggest me so too.

One of the studies listed Polish authors. It was about phage therapy. If I had money I would consider going there. Another option is to try other antibiotics but that scares me. Another study suggested that monolaurin, a substance found in coconut, can break enterococcus faecalis biofilms, but that was in vitro, I doubt that taking it orally it could have the desired effects. And that alone wouldn't kill the bacterias. Maybe combined with a sensitive antibiotic it would so something. The problem is that in my case, there are not many antibiotics that I could try. Moxifloxacin and linezolid are two that are said to be affective against resistant enterococcus faecalis but because of my past experience with antibiotics I have doubts about if they would work.

I think that if I want to cure this, phage therapy is the only road to follow. The other is trying more antibiotics, maybe combined with monolaurin, but I think that this is more improbable to success, it seems that these bacterias are very hard to kill with antibiotics.

Post Re: My story, chronic prostatitis associated with weak orgas
I'm since a few days ago trying an ashwagandha supplement. It's too early to judge the results but I'm noticing morning erections. They are painfull though, and if I masturbate, the ejaculation hurts.

I'm now combining these things:

- Ashwagandha

- Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) (to reduce anxiety)

- Passiflora (to reduce anxiety and relax)

- Yohimbe (sometimes because it can make me a bit nervous)

I'm planing to give inositol a try again. The past year I took a combination of inositol, fish oil and salts (a supplement called ergy base) that improved my orgasms and reduced the pain while ejaculating. I tried the salts alone a few months ago and it didn't work. I'm suspecting that it was the inositol the main cause of the improvements.

Also, I'm getting days of IBS which I guess is related to chronic prostatitis. I notice that when I have those days, the ejaculation and urination is also more painful, like if the whole zone is inflamed.

I'll post an update if I experience any positive changes with those supplements.
