What Causes Prostatitis?

Bacterial prostatitis is caused by bacteria from infected urine that backs up into the prostate ducts. Men who have had catheterization, injury to the area or a recent bladder infection are at greater risk.

Doctors are not entirely certain what causes CPPS and in most cases, no cause is found.

Possible contributing factors to prostatitis include:

  • Infections not found during standard tests
  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • Persistent bladder infections
  • Pelvic muscle spasm
  • Physical activity such as biking or heavy lifting when your bladder is full
