Symptoms of chronic bacterial prostatitis usually begin after age 30, and they only occur in men. Commonly, any form of prostatitis may generate painful urination, bloody urine, or a decreased stream. These symptoms might be accompanied by a relatively low fever and difficulty passing bowel movements. What sets apart chronic bacterial prostatitis is how often people with the condition get urinary tract infections.
Less commonly, an individual with chronic bacterial prostatitis, may experience pain in the pelvic region, in the testicles, or even during ejaculation. Also, sometimes, a person may not experience any symptoms at all.
