urination problems (prostatitis?)

Hi, I'm a 37 year old male. For a year and a half now I've had various urological problems. They began with the onset of mild suprapubic/bladder pain and frequent urination (small amounts). A couple of months later, I developed various additional symptoms: pain in the perineum, buttock, hip area, pain upon ejaculation (sometimes a feeling of blockage) and a sensation of something - urine perhaps - being stuck in my urethra or just beneath the head of my penis. Over the past six months to a year, these secondary problems have gradually subsided, but I appear to be stuck with the urination, which is intensely annoying. Essentially, almost as soon as I finish going, I need to go again. It's as if my bladder was transmitting the urge to go too early, when it is only a little full. I've seen various urologists, all of whom have diagnosed prostatitis and I have followed two courses of antibiotics, but as yet to no avail. I realize that these are fairly classic symptoms for prostatitis, but was just wondering whether anybody out there might have any advice to give me. One of my concerns is that the doctors seem unwilling to explore other avenues. For example, although I've had two transrectal ultraounds and various urine and semen bacterial tests (all negative), I've not had a urine cytology exam done. Does that seem normal?
Thanks in advance,

Re: urination problems (prostatitis?)

Hi, only 5% of prostatitis is bacterial, you probably have an inflammation of the prostate so antibiotics are useless. My not ejaculate for a few weeks, let the prostate rest and heal. Go to the health food store and get yourself some prostate formula vitamins and take twice the dose for 2 weeks. The prostate needs certain nutrients to function properly, the most important being zinc. You should start to feel relief from your symptoms in less than a week but if you do not then it may not be inflammation. I can only relay to you what worked for me and hope it works for you.
