Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome

Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome, also known as Chronic Prostatitis/Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (CP/CPPS) is a poorly-understood disorder that can affect males of practically any age or socioeconomic status. Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome is a “diagnosis of exclusion,” meaning that all other possible causes of the patient’s pain must be ruled out before the diagnosis is made. Conditions that must be excluded include:

 

* chronic bacterial and/or non-bacterial prostatitis

*  bacterial, non-bacterial, or interstitial cystitis

* pelvic floor abscess/mass

* urethral stricture

* bladder neck hypertrophy

 

The hallmark, or “classic” marker of Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome is pelvic or genitourinary pain that persists for three months or longer and, as mentioned above, a definite physical cause for that pain cannot be identified.  There are suggestions, however, that multiple factors such as nervous system irritation due to an unknown agent may play a role in this condition. Symptoms of Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome may include:

 

* constant burning sensation in the penis or on urination

* pain radiating into the back or rectum

* unexplained fatigue

* depression

* pain immediately after ejaculation

* erectile dysfunction

 

Since the cause of Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome is poorly understood, it is reasonable to understand why no consistently-effective treatment* has been found. Fortunately, there are several nutraceutical preparations that may be helpful.

 

Q-Urol

 

Q-Urol may prove helpful in addressing the symptoms associated with inflammation leading to Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome since it is a special formulation of Prosta-Q (below) that has been fortified with Pollen Extract as an anti-inflammatory agent.

 

Prosta-Q

 

Prosta-Q is a formulation of several nutraceuticals that have been shown to help address the intensity of symptoms associated with Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome.

 

Omega-Core

 

The Omega-3 fatty acids (DHA and EPA) found in Omega-Core are essential to maintaining the normal function of cell membranes such as those of nerve cells. As such, Omega-3s may be helpful in maintaining normal nervous system performance in Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome. As a bonus, Omega-3s are proven to lower the levels of bad cholesterol in the blood stream.

 

TriverexTM MD

 

Sexual dysfunction is frequently reported to occur in Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome. The phytochemicals/nutraceuticals in TriverexTM  MD are among the most popular and clinically proven ways to address male sexual health.

 

To summarize, Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome in which pain that is strongly suggestive of chronic prostatitis or urinary tract infection is present although no physical evidence of those conditions is to be found. Although the symptoms associated with this baffling condition are difficult to manage, there are a number of phytochemical/nutraceuticals preparations that are available that may help address the symptoms associated with Chronic Pelvic pain Syndrome.

CPPS (Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome)

Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome, or CPPS, is a condition that is marked by cycles of increasing and decreasing pain in the lower pelvis/bladder/rectum in the absence of chronic bacterial prostatitis or chronic bacterial cystitis. The pain associated with CPPS may radiate from the floor of the pelvis into the rectal area or lower back and can range in intensity from mild to temporarily incapacitating. Chronic fatigue and male sexual dysfunction are frequently component of CPPS, with painful ejaculation and erectile dysfunction being frequent complaints.

 

The cause of CPPS is not fully understood, but autoimmune, neurological, and hormonal factors may be significant contributors.  Treatment* of CPPS has traditionally been limited to pain management, psychotherapy directed at any co-existing psychological disorders (e.g. anxiety/panic disorders) and prescription medications such as an antidepressant (amitriptyline), NSAID (ibuprofen), gabapentin (Neurontin), or even one of the minor tranquilizers. In those cases where conventional medical therapy fails to control the symptoms of CPPS, there are several nutraceutical preparations that may prove to be effective. Two such tested and proven products are Prosta-Q and Q-Urol.

 

Prosta-Q is a combination of several natural remedies, including saw palmetto and Quercetin, that have been shown to be effective for bladder/prostate problems. Q-Urol is an extra-strength, timed-release formulation of Prosta-Q but with the addition of pollen extract, which may counter the urinary tract inflammation associated with CPPS.

 

In addition to these products, several additional products indirectly address CPPS by promoting overall bodily health at the systemic level.

 

Omega-Core contains the Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, both of which are essential to normal nerve function in both the central and peripheral nervous systems. These same fatty acids may also address the inflammation that may contribute to the progression of issues such as CPPS.

 

All-Lipor-Ol features two compounds, Red Yeast Rice and CoEnzyme Q-10, that are known to improve good cholesterol levels and, in the case of CoEnzyme Q-10, functions as a critical component of energy production in the body’s cells. Combining Omega-Core and All-Lipor-Ol may lead to maintaining proper cholesterol levels while helping to address the fatigue component of CPPS.

 

TriverexTM MD is a nutraceutical preparation that incorporates several natural substances that are known to improve male sexual health by improving arterial blood flow into the penis, which can lead to longer and stronger erections as well as targeting mood (improving the psychological outlook toward the sexual experience).

 

Summing up for this post, CPPS causes both chronic pelvic pain and sexual dysfunction in males. Although the cause of CPPS is not well-understood, there are several natural products that have been clinically shown to help address various symptoms that are associated with this form of prostate dysfunction and inflammation.
