I have suffered with prostatitis for 15 years. Symptoms from pain to disfunction etc.. I tried everything, anti biotics , prostate massage you name it I tried it.
Some treatments worked temporarily namely injecting anti biotic into prostate and testicles, because the specialist i went to suspected bacteria and yeast - he told me to cut out yeast products for 2 weeks. there was improvement but not for long.
By luck I discovered a candida test and was diagnosed with candida. I followed the body ecology diet by Donna Gates for the last year and am now 90% relieved of my symptoms.
There is no doubt in my mind that many unexplained prostate inflammation could be caused by candida.
I am now free after years of suffering and nearly 20, 000.00 in medical fees. It could have been resolved so simply so long ago but not 1 of any of the doctors i saw even mentioned candida.
I would like to ask why this is not taken seriously by DOCTORS / UROLOGISTS as a possible cause?
Are you aware of candida and if so why are people still suffering?
I have the same problem. I am 28 and just got this 7months ago. I was given fluconazole and feel better while on it. However not totally. I figured this was prostatitis caused by Candida. The doctors dont seem to believe me. Any advice would be graetly appreciated.
Doc diagnosed me with Calicific Prostatitis. I had inflamation (inflammation) in the bladder as well. It was called Trigonitis. I feel completely better whiule on Diflucan but the effects are temporary as in a 150mg pill is needed a day. One day without it symptoms come back. Let me know what you think.

i have had candida for 20 years maybe longer due to the constant use of antibiotics in high doses and yes i am convinced that it gets in the prostate , the doctors are a waste of time unless you have a " believer" i take finasteride 200mg twice a day for two weeks which keeps it down,, along with sugar free diat, also acidophilus tablets ,there is no easy way to kill it just hard work .
My PSA suddenly doubled in 2005, prompting my doctor to order a biopsy, which proved negative. For the next three years, it fluctuated but remained in the 4-6 zone. Then, in 2009, it hit 7, which led to another biopsy, again negative. Having eliminated cancer, the urologist gave me a prescription for an enlarged prostate (BPH).
From the start, I thought something was fishy! My PSA would rise, then fall, remain low, then rise again!! Add to this the fact that during the biopsy, they found a midline cyst. Putting all this together.....spelt infection and prostatitis. The doctor wrote me a prescription for a powerful anti-biotic....but it had no effect!
The breakthrough came when I had a beer from a local microbrewery. My groin area (prostate) ached!!! Which got me thinking......was it the alcohol or the yeast!! Mircrobrews are not pasteurized (have a lot of yeast). I then suspected a possible yeast infection, which I confirmed both with the candida saliva test, and the myriad symptoms (rashes, yeast growths, fatigue, anal itch),
What was the cause? Although, I don't know for sure, I suspect my ex-wife who had multiple yeast infections and who I believe had candida. Add to this the fact that my diet was heavy on carbohydrates and voila!!!
I'm crossing my fingers!!!
