Brief Answer:
No! Your child is very very safe and run no extra risk related to this!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this.

There is just no way this can have an effect. First, it is not cause by a germ and secondly, sperms carry no germs on them. Your child runs no extra risk related to this non bacterial prostatitis. Even if this were to be bacterial prostatitis, your child would not be affected.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Thank you so much for using our services and feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.
