What is chronic pelvic pain and why it occurs in men
syndrome in
men (chronic non-bacterial prostatitis or prostatodynia) is a
sensation of pain or pressure that is
localized in the pelvic and / or perineal region
or in the genitals.
speak of chronic pain when the duration exceeds 6 months and there
are no causes that can be explained immediately, for example
structural anomalies, neoplasms, infections. Chronic pelvic pain: where does it originate
Chronic pain is localized in
lower abdomen and can originate:

  • From
    the organs of the genital system

    – testicles, spermatic cord, seminal vesicles, prostate.
  • From the
    lower urinary tract

    – urethra and bladder.
  • From
    nerve, bone and muscle structures

The pain varies in
intensity from patient to patient

and in some cases appears to be related to the pelvic organs as
they fill and empty. Sometimes it is the position taken to
cause the pain due to the pressure exerted in certain
points. Symptoms not to be underestimated
Chronic Pelvic Pain
is determined when there can be a variety of symptoms and
causes. The most common symptoms are:

  • Pain in the perineum or the area above the pubis, testicles or penis.

  • Joint and sexual dysfunction.

in middle-aged men. It should be noted that a high percentage
of men suffering from
chronic pelvic pain

causes are anxiety,
stress and depression

therapy .
these treatments have been shown to be effective in people with
pelvic pain syndrome, none of them alone offer one
complete response to this condition. Not to be underestimated are the
consequences that alter the patient’s life such as the reduction
of self-esteem and problems in the couple’s life

(in the presence of sexual dysfunction).
pain is a disabling disorder that impacts
The pelvic floor plays a role during
sexual activity because it pumps blood into the penis through
muscle contraction, thus helping to maintain an erection. Contractions
of the pelvic floor also allow the propulsion of
seminal fluid. Pelvic pain and the resulting difficulty a
maintaining an erection can lead to problems with conception.
A medical consultation is useful for diagnosing and treating the disease correctly, identifying the best treatment to reduce symptoms and solve the problem.
