Hi guys... I don't know what to think. I have been having prostate problems for about 1 year. I have a constant burn in what feels like my prostate... it is made worse by ejaculation. I went to the urologist 3 months ago and he thought that I had prostatitis - gave me 3 weeks Bactrim - problem went away or a little while and returned. I went back to see him and he told me that I definitely have an enlarged prostate and not prostatitis. Can BPH cause my prostate to CONSTANTLY BURN? I have no STDs and no UTI but I feel lie I am in a liing hell... worst part is that I am not even 30 years old! He gave me Proscar and an anti-inflammatory (which doesn't do s**t)... I'm on all the herbal stuff but nothing is working. I will add that I have taken anabolic steroids recently (please don't give me a lecture), but I haven't really found any research linking steroids to increased prostate volume. I've actually found the contrary to be true in terms of PSA scores, but no study on volume. My urologist KNOWS this and didn't seem overly concerned. I havent been off the drugs for very longs, but if they were causing the prostate to enlarge, could it be TEMPORARY and when the high levels of DHT and estrogen are removed for adequate time, it will shrink?
I've had PSA tests done and they have always been in the 1.5 range...
Anyone ever have these types of issues from either cycling or HRT?

Certain steroids cause my prostate to enlarge, but the problem goes away very quickly (thank god) when I go off.

You probably do have prostatitis.. I had it for a long time before it went away. I was taking Ephedrine as well - which made things ten times worse. I could bearly sit. Testosterone isn't going to help. When I'm on test, my PSA goes up. When I come off, it goes down...

Trinovin is a natural isoflavone dietary supplement that can maintain normal prostate and urinary function.
Trinovin is formulated from red clover (biological name Trifolium pratense). As well as being an approved foodstuff, red clover is a legume that is one of the richest sources of isoflavones found in nature. Red clover contains all four of the most important isoflavones that are present in Asian, Mediterranean and Latin American diets, namely biochanin A, formononetin, daidzein and genistein. Trinovin is standardised to contain 40mg of isoflavones.
Almost all men will suffer from prostate problems at one point or another in life. In some cultures men maintain prostate health better than others. Research suggests this may be due to an increased level of isoflavones, from legumes in their diet. Trinovin helps maintain prostate health through its use of Red Clover isoflavones.
Also, saw palmetto at high dosages promotes prostate health.
I agree that the testosterone will not make it any better for you.

chronic inflammation does mimic BPH. most people I have spoken to have lessened symptoms of your condition when your test levels are elevated within normal high range. don't worry about the test because you may be justified for trt therapy anyway because a inflamed prostate causes your test levels to drop .

I have also have BPH. I have tried most of the normal recommendations Beta Sitosterol, Saw Palmetto, etc. none of them really provided much relief. Recently I began using Diesel Test Pro, two tabs on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. Low and behold I am sleeping through the night for the first time in years and I can pee like a teenager. I'm not sure what is helping for sure may be the DHEA or the Pregnenalone. It could be the nettle root but whatever it is it seems to be helping.

Try a product called moodmax by the lin institute and if that doesn't get rid of it I know something that will that you can PM me about. Also limit your sex to once a week.

I often feel like I need to urinate when I don't, even just after I go. Is this a sign of prostate problems?

Here's my experience I don't know if it applies to you. I was having prostate problems on an off for about 2yrs. Like you it started out feeling like an infection. i had all of your symptoms. The doctor gave me an exam, and did blood work, PSA's came back fine. After a few weeks it cleared up (i don't remember how long it took). But I continued having some flair-ups peridically. This spring my lifts went into the toilet and after a month or so of this I figured my test range was low (it's been low but until now didn't effect me much). I'm 56 so I don't really need to know why it's low. test came back below normal so the doc put me on 2.5 mg of androgel which is a pretty low dose but since then my prostate has never been better.
So in my case at least so far, TRT has been a cure not a cause. It's my understanding prostate problems can be a result of hormone imbalance which was probably my problem. I've done my share of cycles but they didn't seem to effect things one way or another.
If I were you my next step would be to get your hormone levels checked. I like my doc, he's a good man, but I had to prod him a little to get him to prescribe a blood test to check my hormone levels, so don't depend on you doc to initiate one. Even if you're young and don't have any problems it's a good idea to get a base line so you know what's normal for you.
BTW, I took stuff like saw palmetto, nettle root they didn't help.

To see where the imbalance may lie.
DHT is not an issue if your e2 is kept in check
Some times there are modificaitons that need to be made in HRT to reduce the nasty side effects that can occur
Some people like myself have genetic issues that allows there body to convert to more bad estrogen then good estrogen adding havoc to the prostrate despite good e2 numbers.
