Acute prostatitis is a kind of prostatitis where a severe bacterial infection lives in the prostate gland.

Generally all the symptoms are related to urination, such as  weak and feeble urinary stream. Patients might get dribbling even when they think urination is finished. Other symptoms of acute prostatitis are frequent urination during the sleep and pain or burning sensation during the act of urination. Often the patient might experience mild to severe pain in the genital or pelvic area. During intercourse patients suffering from acute prostatitis can often suffer pain when they ejaculate. General symptoms are chills, nausea, fever, malaise, fatigue, vomiting, etc.
