Prostatitis is the affliction of the prostate about which we know least. So, not surprisingly, we currently have little idea how to prevent the problem. The best advice at present is to avoid the risk factors for prostatitis where possible (for example, if you have symptoms of a urinary tract infection, such as a burning sensation when urinating, or cloudy smelly urine, visit your doctor and complete any prescribed courses of antibiotics). Also, maintain a healthy lifestyle, eat a diet low in saturated fats, take plenty of exercise and always be vigilant about avoiding a risk of infection, especially during anal intercourse.
