women and CPPS

I have two questions which no one one has been able to answer: 1. If CPPS does not have anything to do with the prostate, why is it you don't see women on this site, using the Stanforfd Protocol, etc.? 2. Women do have chronic pelvic pain (CPP) but for them it is not a "syndrone" and treatment is av...

It began abruptly in the middle of the night with other prostatitis symptoms (difficulty urinating, week stream, etc.). Although the urinary symptoms are bad enough, the cons...
