Prostatitis is a common condition for men and the main reason is E.coli. Monilial vaginitis is a common gynecological disease for women and the main reason is candida albicans. Is there any connection between prostatitis and candida albicans?

For a large number of people, the candida albicans usually induces diseases like monilial vaginitis to women, but not the men. Therefore, men tend to hold the view that they are protected from candida albicans. However, the truth is prostatitis can also be led by it. 

 
Take Mr. Jiang for example. His wife is a victim of monilial vaginitis for many years. Although his wife has accepted treatment all the time, this condition is always recurring. Three months ago, Mr. Jiang had an unprotected intercourse with his wife, because they considered that the monilial vaginitis was cured as all symptoms were gone.

However, after that unprotected sex, Mr. Jiang began to experience redness on urethral orifice, discomfort on perineum, urgent urination and frequent urination. After taking test in hospital, he was told that it is prostatitis and it is caused by candida albicans. Why the prostatitis can also be led by candida albicans?
 
Generally speaking, the candida albicans in vagina can be transmitted to men’s urethra via sexual contact. Then the candida albicans in men’s urethra can spread to other reproductive organs like prostate via blood circulation or lymph. Therefore, prostatitis can be led by candida albicans and the monilial prostatitis is very common to see. As for the symptoms of monilial prostatitis, they are as same as chronic prostatitis.

Monilial prostatitis is dangerous, because if left untreated, the monilial prostatitis can affect men’s sexual ability, leading to impotence and premature ejaculation. To cure this type of prostatitis, antibiotics are the major choice. However, owing to the side-effects like drug resistance and damage to liver and kidney, antibiotics aren’t the best choice. Herbal pills like Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill is a good option, because it is safe and has no side effects. All in all, to prevent the prostatitis, men also should avoid candida albicans.
