In this article we have tried to discuss this disorder more closely so that a clearer understanding can be developed about it and also herbal remedies by Planet Ayurveda to manage this condition naturally are discussed briefly.

Chronic Pelvic Pain And Prostatitis


Generally chronic pelvic pain and prostatitis occur in a male in an overlapping manner where the patient suffers from prostatitis along with the on and off episodes of pelvic pain coming and going away unpredictably. There occurs inflammation of the prostate gland resulting in difficulty in urination majorly. Chronic pelvic pain syndrome and prostatitis ( CPPS) results in decreased quality of life of a person, be it personal and professional leaving the patient depressed and confused. Among all the forms of prostatitis, the one with chronic pelvic pain syndrome is the most common one which affects the large number of male population. The main problem with this disorder is that it is usually misdiagnosed or late diagnosed resulting in delayed or mal treatment. Medicines given conventionally are usually for the temporary relief of the condition rather than treating it completely which leads to a vicious cycle that goes on. As per modern medicine it is considered to be incurable due to lack of information about it. In CPPS there is no evidence of the bacterial infection along with pain in the lower back.


There is an overlap of two types of symptoms, i.e. prostatitis and Chronic pelvic pain syndrome. The major signs and symptoms appearing are:

  • Pain in lower back, lower abdomen and perineum
  • Pain in penis usually in the testicles and at tip
  • Burning and pain while ejaculation
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Premature ejaculation
  • Urinary troubles like incomplete emptying of bladder, increased urgency and frequency
  • Pain and discomfort in groin area
  • Sensation of sitting on golf ball
  • Stinging pain during urinating
  • Decreased libido


The cause behind CPPS or chronic pelvic pain syndrome and prostatitis overlapping condition is not known clearly due to lack of evidence. Some of the factors which are considered to play a role in its causation are:

  • Certain genetic factors
  • Insidious infection
  • Inflammation of prostate gland surrounding nerves
  • Entrance of urine in prostate gland
  • Idiopathic abnormal functioning of pain signal sending nerves
  • Anxiety or stress
  • History of damage or injury of the pelvic floor muscles


Thorough physical examination, detailed medical history and further laboratory tests can help in diagnosing chronic pelvic pain syndrome. However as the signs and symptoms can be confusing and can lead to difficulty in diagnosis but careful examination can give the doctor track for diagnosing the condition. Some of the tests that can help in confirming the diagnosis are:

  • Pelvic examination
  • Blood tests for ruling out the infections like gonorrhea or Chlamydia
  • Ultrasound
  • CT (Computed tomography) scan
  • X-ray
  • MRI (Magnetic resonance imaging)


Conventionally the treatment is aimed to give temporary relief to symptoms using pain relievers, antibiotics and antidepressants. Due to insufficient understanding of the disease, the treatment in modern practice is limited usually for the temporary relief of the condition.

Ayurveda can help in treating the condition completely through the herbs which possess natural healing properties for such ailments. Also as per Ayurveda diseases are caused basically due to vitiation of the doshas, i.e. Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Hence, restoring their balance results in complete treatment of the condition.
