Answer

Protection against sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) also provides protection against many organisms associated with acute bacterial prostatitis, development of chronic prostatitis, and suspected causes of nonbacterial prostatitis.

Psychological stress has been associated with men who report symptoms of chronic prostatitis. [4, 31] Recognition of underlying psychosomatic disease in chronic cases and appropriate psychiatric referral and treatment lessens the recurrence rate.
