Chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS) is a serious quality of life issue for many men, and knowing its symptoms can help patients get the help they need.

There are many different types of prostatitis, or inflammation of the prostate gland. The most common type, according to the International Society for Sexual Medicine (ISSM), is chronic prostatitis, or CPPS. This condition affects men of all ages, but it is more common among young and middle-aged men.

Chronic pelvic pain syndrome can be very difficult to diagnose, says the ISSM. The symptoms often mimic other conditions such as bladder or kidney problems. Some men don’t experience symptoms all the time and symptoms can even come and go without explanation.

Male Pelvic Floor Advanced Bodywork and Massage describes the three most common types of symptoms of chronic pelvic pain and asserts that these symptoms can be inconsistent and intermittent.

1. Pain and discomfort – These primary symptoms include, but are not limited to, pain in the tail bone, perineum (area between the scrotum and anus), pelvic floor, penis, testes and scrotum, lower abdomen, and thighs.

2. Sexual dysfunction – Sexual disorders include painful and premature ejaculation, decreased sex drive, and impotence.

3. Urinary difficulties
– These symptoms are the same as those for enlarged prostate and include a weak urine stream, painful or uncomfortable urination, an urgent need to urinate, and more frequent than normal urination.

In addition to these three main categories of symptoms, Patient says a feeling of general fatigue or having other aches and pains can also be associated with chronic pelvic pain. In order to be diagnosed with CPPS, symptoms are usually present for at least three consecutive months within the past six months.

The symptoms of chronic pelvic pain often cause a great deal of anxiety in men. Male Pelvic Floor Advanced Bodywork and Massage says that this condition remains poorly understood by many physicians and is often misdiagnosed, adding to patients’ frustration and anxiety. Patients are encouraged to seek medical treatment and consider alternative treatments for symptom relief.
