I doubt the two are related. Are you concerned about having picked up an STD? Is your wife having any symptoms such as rash or discharge or foul odor? If this is a worry, you should get tested for gonorrhea and chlamydia, both of which require only a urine specimen. More likely than not, however, is that you caught the flu at about the same time. Some flu viruses have a 1-2 weeks incubation period, so you may have actually already been infected with something. Either way, your family doctor could sort this out for you and make sure you get treated properly.

I am concerned re std as recently diagnosed with prostatitis. Could std have been the cause and missed during diagnosis?
Expert:  Dr. Bob replied 9 months ago.
A prostatic infection can cause all the symptoms you describe. They can be very uncomfortable. The organism is typically an enteric one (from the GI tract), such as E coli, Enterobacter, or Enterococcus. Other common pathogens include , Klebsiella, Proteus, Pseudomonas, Serratia, and Staphylococcus aureus. These are not considered STDs.
Expert:  Dr. Bob replied 9 months ago.
Chlamydia and Gonorrhea can infect the prostate as well, though this is less common. A doctor will not usually check for these unless the history suggests them as a possibility. If you were not tested for them at your initial visit, you could go back and get tested. All of these infections typically resolve with antibiotics, though the selection of antibiotic and the duration of treatment may vary depending on test results, risk factors and overall health.

Ok Doctor, I think the best thing is to get tested then (for my wife's benefit as much as mine) as don't think I was tested initially.
Thank you for your help.

I would agree with you. If there is any doubt, you might want to get tested for syphilis (RPR), hepatitis C and HIV while you are at it. Otherwise, do keep in mind that prostatitis is usually NOT an STD and cannot be contracted through oral sex alone.
