Post Intraprostatic injection more effective than Intramuscular?
Or intravenous?

"There are doctors who disagree that this method is better than intramuscular shots of antibiotic. These doctors note that there were some studies 20 to 30 years ago that show that the availability of antibiotics in the prostate following the intraprostatic protocol is identical to the amount you get when you give the patient an intramuscular shot of the same antibiotic. The doctors argue that the success rate of intraprostatic injection is low and the complication rate is higher. That is why this treatment may be considered alternative and controversial."

"Some men have their symptoms get worse after receiving intraprostatic injection. Unfortunately the majority of information on intraprostatic injection for prostatitis comes from anecdotal evidence instead of documented studies. That is why this treatment is considered a last resort."

Any opinions/experiences on treating chronic bacterial prostatitis with intramuscular or intravenous injection of antibiotics (plus alpha blockers etc)?

I know there's been a lot of talk on prostate injection clinics, but not as much hype around this possible alternative?
