Q: 

Unexpected prostate fluid release

A: Kevin, this is a very common condition with the medical name congestive?prostatitis. During sexual arousal the prostate gland manufactures fluid that accounts for about 2/3 of the volume of ejaculate.  The seminal vesicles are paired structures located behind the prostate gland that also manufacture fluid.  Sperm from the testicles (which account for only 1-2% of the semen) travel up a series of tubes (epididymis and vas deferens) on each side to join the seminal vesicles forming the paired ejaculatory ducts.  These structures empty into the prostatic portion of the urethra.  At the time of ejaculation, prostatic fluid is discharged into the...
Q: 

prostate fluid after urination or defecation

A: Adam: First, the vasectomy has nothing to do with this.  Pressure on the prostate will express prostatic and seminal vesicle fluids. This fluid is harmless and does not represent an infection.  There may be some prostatitis so it"s probably a good idea to check with a urologist....

Q: 

Prostate fluid/Genital Culture

A: Mike: Your questions are reasonable and really should be directed at your urologist.  I fail to understand what he is treating since only normal flora was found.  Augmentin, the antibiotic he gave you, is not unreasonable as a treatment for prostatitis but it is not usually the first choice. True bacterial infection of the prostate is relatively uncommon and difficult to detect even with cultures.  Diagnosis is usually made on clinical grounds and you"ve indicated no symptoms to suggest a problem.  You really need to ask your urologist for an explanation....
Q: 

Concerns about prostate fluid release

A: Pressure from a bowel movement is directed towards the seminal vesicals located behind the prostate and under the bladder.  This will sometimes push some fluid out the penis, especially if there has not been a recent ejaculation.  Although it may be a little disconcerting, it"s not abnormal.  You may want to see a physician to have it checked out....

Q: 

BPH vs.Prostatitis

A: Jeff, both prostatitis and BPH can give similar symptoms (such as frequency) as they affect the same gland.  However, prostatitis symptoms alone are flared by sexual activity.  Also, your long history of symptoms in a relatively young man (42) would fit more with prostatitis.  Microscopic examination & culture of the prostatic fluid will help in the differential.  The presence of pus cells greater than 5 per ml is strongly in favor of prostatitis.  If the culture is also positive, you have bacterial prostatitis and if negative, abacterial prostatitis.  In prostadynia (also called prostatic congestion syndrome) both pus cells and bacteria area absent.  Although the latter finding is...
Q: 

congested prostate

A: Carmine, a congested prostate is a very common condition. During sexual arousal the prostate gland manufactures fluid that accounts for about 2/3 of the volume of ejaculate.  The seminal vesicles are paired structures located behind the prostate gland that also manufacture fluid.  Sperm from the testicles (which account for only 1-2% of the semen) travel up a series of tubes (epididymis and vas deferens) on each side to join the seminal vesicles forming the paired ejaculatory ducts.  These structures empty into the prostatic portion of the urethra.  At the time of ejaculation, prostatic fluid is discharged into the urethra (urinary canal) where it...
Q: 

Is 35 to young for prostate problems?

A: Ron, you are not too young for prostate problems.  The most common prostate condition at your age is a swollen prostate from infrequent ejaculation or an inflamed prosate, so called prostatitis.  prostatic enlargement (BPH) and prostate cancer are unusual at age 35. There are many causes for urinary frequency.  The common ones include diabetes, urinary tract infections, excessive fluid consumption (especially coffee, tea and beer which produce an additive diuretic effect), prostate conditions in men (ie benign or cancerous enlargement, prostatitis, prostatic congestion which is most often due to infrequent ejaculation, etc.), urinary stones, a variety of kidney disorders associated with inability...
Q: 

Overactive bladder or Prostatitis?

A: Michael, you do indeed have an "overactive bladder" but I believe it is due to prostatitis and not the overactive bladder syndrome.  The latter does cause frequency of urination but rarely any of the other symptoms you describe.  I don"t know if you have previously read my "macro" on prostatitis so I will attach it to this note.  It contains most of the information you need to understand the condition and the various types of prostatitis.  It is as follows: The most common cause of these complaints is an inflammation of the prostate gland, so called prostatitis.  Symptoms that might occur with prostatitis include frequency of urination, slowing of the urinary stream, burning with voiding or ejaculation, burning in the penile tip unrelated to voiding, urethral...
Q: 

Prostate discomfort?

A: Axel, the most common cause of these complaints is an inflammation of the prostate gland, so called prostatitis.  I am sure that this is your problem.  Symptoms that might occur with prostatitis include frequency of urination, slowing of the urinary stream, burning with voiding or ejaculation, burning in the penile tip unrelated to voiding, urethral discharge, sexual dysfunction (such as difficulty with erection), aching in the penis, testicles, and discomfort in the lower abdomen, low back, groin, rectum or perineum (the area between the scrotum and rectum ? between the ?wind and the rain?) and constipation. The passage of blood at the initiation or termination of urination or in the semen can also be noted.  During sexual arousal the prostate gland manufactures
