What causes infection of streptococcus agalactiae in the prostate?

Hello, I have been diagnosed with an infection of Streptococcus Agalactiae in my prostate, after a sperm test. I always use condoms but I get passive oral sex without it. I am in a very stressing stretch of my life. Please, what are the connections , if there are any between such bacteria and hiv and/or profound stress?

Thank you.

Hello,

The prostate infection can acquire secondary to urinary tract infection as well.

You need to take antibiotics according to culture reports. It is not related to HIV.

If you have oral ulceration than there is little chance of Hiv spread if partner is infected with HIV. You can investigate with CMIA ELISA test if suspecting HIV.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Parth Goswami, General & Family Physician
