Staph infection in prostate

Hi...I have been suffering from prostatitis for over a year now, and my 3rd urologist, after performing a semen culture, said they found light growth of staph in my semen.  He said most people have this, but if I'm symptomatic, he'll prescribe me an antibiotic.  My question is, is this somethign I should be concerned about?  Can I pass this to my g/f?  Can this cause infertility?  Anyone?

Thanks for that info but that's not the staph infection I have...I have negative coagulous staph...what your friend had was probably a positive coagulous staph.
