I am 36 years-old. Last year I was diagnosed with a prostate infection. I was given antibiotics which seemed to work but never completely cleared the symptoms which included frequent urination and slight discomfort in the area of the prostate. I went back to my doctor who prescribed more antibiotics and the symptoms went away. Six months later they returned and I was given more antibiotics and my doctor scheduled x-rays of my kidneys/bladder. X-rays were negative. I took antibiotics for a month and the last 10 days the symptoms were gone and I felt like my old self. A week after the antibiotics ran out, my frequent urination has returned. Does this problem require longer treatments of antibiotics than a month or should I be concerned that there is something else at cause here?
