Prostatitis and Pelvic Inflammatory Disease is diagnosed in an astounding number of people in the USA every year. These two conditions are notoriously difficult to diagnose let alone cure.
In the case of Prostatitis, the prevailing medical establishment conclusion is that 90% or more of diagnosed cases are due to non-bacterial causes. Unfortunately this figure is unreliable, as detecting pathogens is difficult, sometimes impossible to do. Infections that have been allowed to become well-established are usually well-hidden and blocked by infected material and calcification in glands, ducts and passageways.
Thus Prostatitis diagnosis is difficult and the prevailing diagnosis in such cases of non-bacterial prostatitis may in fact be incorrect. One pointer to infection being the cause is the degree of symptom relief that can be achieved when courses of antibiotics are given.
Even if infection is confirmed or suspected, treatment is still very often unsuccessful. In the Western World (First World countries), standard treatment is multiple courses of oral antibiotics and it is an established fact that blood-borne penetration of the male genitourinary system by oral antibiotics is difficult and of insufficient strength.
At this stage of the treatment process, there is little that can be done except for prescribing repeated courses of antibiotics which risk creating resistant pathogens in the short-term and immune system damage in the long-term.
Many long-term sufferers of Prostatitis have turned to every alternative remedy available, the most popular of which generally are mail-order Chinese herbal preparations, however most patients report short-term relief of symptoms at best.
Genitourinary problems caused by infection, like Prostatitis and Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (female) become even more significant when such infections become passed from partner to partner. In an established relationship, genitourinary infections can often be asymptomatic in females, generally extremely symptomatic in males, with the serious effect of causing infertility. In such an environment, treatment becomes even more difficult unless both partners in the relationship are treated at the same time. Otherwise treatment becomes extremely compromised due to continual reinfection from the non-treated partner.
The result is that as much as 50% of the cause of Infertility is due to infection, and when the medical condition of the two partners is taken into account, this becomes a problem that is very hard to resolve. Even if treatment options produce a successful pregnancy, the fetus is at considerable risk from the infection(s) that have never been resolved.
In such situations, the infections must be successfully treated before a safe and successful pregnancy is achieved. As discussed, oral antibiotics are often unsuccessful even if a pathogen can be isolated. The couple now have just one option; local injections of medications which precision-target the necessary areas in strengths far stronger than oral drugs can achieve. There are a number of leading Infertility-due-to Infection Clinics around the World, a few of them are extremely successful.
