I only take 2 tablets of Prosta-Q per day. I don't take a resting period however. At some point I'll try that.

Mark said: Have you started quercetin lately? Quercetin can cause yellowish sperm for a short period, in my opinion because it allows a release of backed-up inflamed secretions from the prostate. Although I definitely agree that there is much truth to this, since my semen was VERY yellow after start...

I'm certainly no doctor, but I am a statistician. I think there's a flaw in your calculations. You have to consider that there is a large time period in a man's life BEFORE they develop the condition. For example I did not get the condition until I was 32, so with 20/20 hindsight, for the first 32 y...

I used to golf once a week and would usually shoot in the mid-90's. Last summer I only golfed twice. This summer I went out once and expected to play terribly, since I had barely golfed in 2 years. I hadn't even practiced at the driving range. I shot an 87! For me I think it's just an appreciation f...

I'm also in Toronto and have had a similar experience with my Uro (hey...maybe we're seeing the same guy?). Some months ago, I called my MD and asked for a referral to a new Uro, and my MD told me that I would just be wasting my time. I also could not find Dr. Radzinski in the listings, but there's ...

I also have split streams very often, even when I'm not in a flare. In fact, even in my pre-CP days, I occasionally had a split stream at the beginning of a urination. I was never too concerned about it, since I never had any pain or other symptoms. I wonder now if this was a sign of things to come.

But if you are promiscuous, it's a possibility. I'm not promiscuous (married and monogamous) and don't have symptoms like that.

I didn't get any replies to this post, but just to keep you up to date, I'm 3 weeks into Suprax and I find that I'm progressively getting better. This has helped me more than anything else has. I'm still taking Prosta-Q and I'm still on Xatral, which have both helped too. It's possible that this is ...

They'll ship it to Canada for you. Call them. As mentioned in my previous post here, I had a customs charge of $7, but that's the first time.

I take about 1500mgs of quercetin (Prosta-Q) per day. I may cut back to 1000mgs at some point. For the first time, my Prosta-Q order came to me (Toronto, Canada) with a customs charge. :cry: I strongly feel that quercetin is what is making my teeth more yellowy. It's not too severe, but enough that ...

Paso, You say you have to urinate every 2 hours or so and have little pain. I still say that every 2 hours is in the range of normal, providing that it's not throughout the night. Are you drinking more than you used to? Whatever you have, it sounds like a really mild case. I'm not a fortune teller, ...

Suprax - anti-biotic

Hi everyone, My uro prescribed another anti-biotic. I had been off anti-biotics for about 5 months. I know...I know...I know what you are all saying...anti-biotics are useless, etc. I agree, but I figured I would give them another shot, since in the past anti-biotics initially helped me, but eventua...

I have had symptoms for 6 weeks and have been on abs (Cipro) and feel better but I still have frequency (6-9 times per day) and some strange pain/tingle feeling in my penis from time to time. I'm no doctor, but I think 6-9 times a day would NOT be considered frequent. That's urinating every 2 hours...

Shalom Mike, I'm not going to be the most uplifting voice you'll hear, but I share your pain. Our symptoms are likely similar. My most common symptom is a pain towards the tip of the penis. It's an awful feeling. The good news is that there's things to try other than anti-biotics that may help you. ...

Hi Northstar, You can order Prosta-Q by phone and they will deliver it to you in Canada. I think the first bottle is free, but they charge you maybe $5 or something for delivery. If you subscribe monthly, they wave the shipping fee. It's expensive, but since the CDN $ is going up, it's getting cheap...
