Male reproductive organs include external genitalia, accessory gonads, epididymis, and testes. Inflammation can occur when the parts mentioned above are infected by microorganisms such as bacteria, chlamydia, mycoplasma, and viruses.
Many people think that reproductive infections are related to unclean sexual behavior, and patients are easily misunderstood by persons with conservative views, causing family disputes. Therefore, patients often conceal their condition and fail to diagnose and treat it in time, resulting in the spread of the disease and the aggravation of the condition. In fact, there are many causes of reproductive infections.
When it comes to male genital infections, people more or less have heard of them. In recent years, the incidence of reproductive infectious diseases has been rising, which has become a major hidden danger affecting men's health and deserves attention. If you are not feeling well, seek medical treatment in time.
Men need to stay away from these common genital infections.
1. Orchitis: This is a prevalent male disease, often a complication of epididymitis, and can develop into epididymo-orchitis in severe cases. It can also be secondary to systemic diseases such as mumps, syphilis, and tuberculosis. Inflammation of the testis, whether originating in the testis or from other systems, damages the testis. Men with unilateral testicular damage can still reproduce, while bilateral damage can cause oligospermia or azoospermia. Orchitis or epididymitis caused by gonorrhea infection can result in loss of testicular function and partial or complete obstruction of the epididymis.
2. Urethritis: Bad living habits lead to urethritis. Masturbation, smoking, drinking, excessive sexual intercourse and other bad habits cause pressure and damage to the urethra, causing urethral ischemia, congestion, hypoxia, and urethra, which will reduce the body immunity and make the urethra more susceptible to infection, resulting in urethritis.
3. Cystitis: Common non-specific cystitis is caused by Escherichia coli, Para Escherichia coli, Proteus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Streptococcus faecalis, and Staphylococcus aureus, most of which are caused by backward flow of infected urine. In daily life, paying attention to your hygiene will significantly help you recover after illness.
4. Prostatitis: Chronic prostatitis is a common disease in adult men. At a particular stage of the disease, symptoms such as impotence, premature ejaculation, and neurasthenia will appear, inhibiting spermatogenesis and affecting fertility.
5. Epididymitis: Acute epididymitis is mainly caused by the spread of urinary tract infection to the epididymis along the vas deferens. Chronic epididymitis often coexists or occurs successively with chronic prostatitis and chronic seminal vesiculitis. During the development of inflammatory lesions, the epididymal lumen may become thinner and narrower or even develop into complete lumen occlusion due to cicatrization. If the lesions are bilateral, infertility occurs.
Reproductive infections can cause male infertility, such as long-term infection of the reproductive tract, which can lead to malignant transformation of semen liquefaction and can also lead to some functional disorders of prostate secretion. Therefore, genital infection leading to infertility is the main direct cause. For the above reproductive infections, Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill, an herbal medicine, is an effective choice. It affects the entire urinary and reproductive system. The most important thing is that this medicine is made of pure plant with few side effects, and it is not easy to develop drug resistance, which is also its advantage.
So how to prevent reproductive infection?
1. Regular genital examinations: including genital B-ultrasound examination, secretion examination, and physical examination by doctors. The purpose is to exclude genital diseases and genital tract infections.
2. Pay attention to personal hygiene: When cleaning the anus, do not scrub from back to front, but from front to back or from the anus to both sides. It is best to rinse the anus with water after defecation to prevent E. coli around the anus from contaminating the urethral opening and causing genital tract infection.
3. Keep an eye out for symptoms: if you have any unusual discharge, wound, abscess, lump, soreness, or pain in, on, or around your penis or anus, or if you have sex with someone you think may have a reproductive infection, see a doctor for a checkup. If you are in doubt, it is always wise to do a check. Also, stop sexual activity first.
4. See a doctor if you have symptoms: otherwise, the infection will get worse and may have been transmitted to another person. There is no way of knowing how severe the condition is. Some symptoms of a life-threatening infection can be as mild as a minor infection, and only a doctor can determine what is wrong with the diagnosis. There are many hospitals where examinations and tests can be done in complete privacy. No one will know you have a reproductive infection, but you should tell the person you are having sex with.
5. Pay attention to intercourse: in intercourse, condoms should be used from beginning to end. Remember one principle: every time you have sex, practice safer sex.
6. Regular sex partners: Be careful! The more people you have unprotected sex with, the more likely you will contract a reproductive infection.
