New Visitors Page

 

You might want to start by reading our Frequently Asked Questionsfiles. The page you link to contains a partial definition of prostatitis. Or you might want to look over a complete listof all files on this site, which has been updated in August, 1997 to contain all the pages on this site.
The place where you started out when you typed the address http://www.prostatitis.org is the homepage, with the filename "index.html". It lists several of the main things going on. However not all pages here are linked to the home page (there are too many!)
The Whats Newpage lists all the new files in the last 30 days, from the most recent to the oldest.
The second item contains the link you most likely used to get to this page, and also a link to a page of welcome for doctorsvisiting our site. This site is primarily for patients, but we hope doctors find it informative and helpful also.
The third bullet item links you to information about the Prostatitis Foundation which sponsors this site. You can find out, for example, what you need to do to make a donation to the foundation. Also, you can find out how we decide what to put on the site and what to leave off(aside from the standard 'what we get around to').
There's the 1997 bacterial oriented FAQ(Frequently Asked Questions) file, and an FAQ on herbal remedies, and even a FAQ on how to drain your own prostate gland (which can also be useful if you are seeking drainage from a spouse or other partner.)
The idea of having a page on the different methods and themesin treating prostatitis, including that of Dr. Antonio Espinosa Feliciano, is to have a logical way of linking. If you are only interested in one method, you can follow that one. This bullet item also has a link to a page where the focus is on recent Scientific and medical publications and papersthat speak to prostatitis. We especially want you to know how to order your copy of a 100-page monograph, The Prostatitis Syndromes, by Dr. Brad Hennenfent, MD. Brad is one of our founders and the has compiled most of what is known about prostatitis in one place.
This next bullet item links you to prostatitis clinics which have pages on the web. You might want to come back every once in a while to see if new clinics have been added. This page includes only clinics which have a WWW and E-mail presence. There are others, but they aren't listed here. The pointerspage list links to other websites, including some for doctors, organizations and for other diseases, such as Interstitial Cystitis and prostate cancer.
This bullet item links you to our file archive, which includes our archive of newsgroup postingsfrom sci.med.prostate.prostatitis and its predecessor, alt.support.prostate.prostatitis all the way back to June of 1995. There's a lot to read here. The second item here links you to a page with complete instructions on how to sign up for the E-mail listserv, if you don't like going to the newsgroup sci.med.prostate.prostatitis or you really prefer to get the latests discussions via E-mail.
Explore, and come back. This site changes a lot, mostly by addition, as new comments and new knowledge are added.
