The main cause of the disease are pathogens (Escherichia coli, tuberculosis, Streptococcus, Staphylococcus) that appear in the urogenital system, to multiply and destroy the tissue of the prostate.

Infectious process in chronic prostatitis (in contrast to acute prostatitis) slow, increase inflammation occurs gradually. Chronic prostatitis can develop even after the suppression of the infection. This occurs because of the arising of the autoimmune process, in breach of the innervation of the prostate (the immune system "attacks" on the tissues of the prostate gland).

The occurrence of chronic prostatitis is not only the presence of infection, but may be a consequence of the causes of blood stagnation in the prostate. These include:

inactive (sedentary) lifestyle;

nerazdelennaya sex life (prolonged abstinence, regular drawal as a way to control ejaculation);

tight underwear.
