I don’t know that my DH was ever actually diagnosed with anything, but when he had his SA done June 2012, he had traces of bacteria and infection.  He was given antibiotics for a week, and had to repeat the test again 6 weeks later.  The 2nd SA came back with no signs of infection of bacteria!  His dr did advise that if it goes untreated it could potentially have long term effects, but it’s apparently fairly common and treatable.  We did have issues conceiving, but we had both been tested and everything was all within normal ranges for both of us, so we don’t have answers regarding why it took us so long.  After a MC then 1 Clomid cycle, I can happily say I’m currently 8w pregnant!  Best of luck to you and your husband!

@mrsw5711:  Thank you!  My DH was really freaked about it at first too and immediately put our TTC struggles on himself.  His dr told him he doesn’t know what caused it to happen, but a round of antibiotics always does the trick for his patients.  so tell you’re DH not to stress! 🙂  one of my close friends had this happen to her husband too, and it did take Clomid for them to get pregnant as well, but she had a beautiful baby girl about 3 weeks ago!

Prostatitis is like the UTI for men. treated with abx, but sometimes it can be harder to get rid of.

My SO just dealt with this, it took 3 months to shake fully – so warning, that can happen – but he ended up just fine. He had probably had it for a while and didn’t know (apparently, sometimes it is symptomless).

My DH has not had this- but my dad has…. and it was a fairly serious thing.  I’m sure that it is different in everyone- but he has had it 2 times and it was a long recovery the first time- the second it cleared up a bit quicker.  I think the first time it took awhile to get an med that worked… and then the 2nd they knew what med to prescribe.

Good Luck!
