New Person

Hi there; 

I'm new to the site and wanted to introduce myself. I have CPPS and have been suffering with it for the eight months. It started after a traumatic event of a sexual nature and I do believe a large part of it is psychological in nature. The pain and the frequent urination both went on for around six weeks and though the frequent urination abated, the dull ache has persisted and worsens at times of stress. My genitals, rectum and groin are all affected. I really am at my wits end and no doctor i have seen even knows what CPPS is let alone how to treat it.


I have been looking for any and all alternative treatments; I'm even looking into maijuna bakes to seevufthat helps. Has anyone got by words of hope or advice that isn't prescription drugs? I can't keep this up; the depression is making it hard to cope

If the traumatic event was non-consensual, you may find the best course of action is to contact a rape support service in your area - for example #5millionmen at Safeline https://www.safeline.org.uk/what-we-do/men/ or Survivors UK at https://www.survivorsuk.org

If you are correct that the CPPS is psychological, counselling may be your best chance of nailing it before it becomes a way of life.
