Direct injections of antibiotics into the Prostate area is something to consider in the case of stubborn infection, but there are also other optionsHere's a paper reflecting the mess that the Medicine Industry is in when it comes to Prostatitis; Bacterial or Non-bacterial? Some support for common sense:

Please read this warning before contemplating this specific treatment offer:  

Even if done by a serious clinician, several have warned against this procedure (even if some have benefitted), as the prostate and surrounding structures are delicate with innervations etc. From the perspective of Cpn infection, it looks even worse, as if Cpn has reached the prostate, it has in all probablility reached and settled in other tissues as well. Even if a series of injecitons are successful in eradictating the Cpn in the prostate, it will still be present in the other locations, and even possibly return to the prostate. A CAP is a much more sensible approach, in my view.

 THe duration of the treatment is another issue, as injections are often done at week to ten day intervals, and about three or four times. the overall duration is far too short.

Interestingly another clinician and reseracher offering direct abx injections to the prostate , Dr Guercini in Rome, has published on the efficiency, and similar or better results has been achieved for at least E coli infection if the oral abx treatment is accompanied by natural anti-bio-film, antiinflammtory and antimicrobal agents (saw palmetto, garlic tomato etc).

 I think the prostatitis researchers have a lot to learn from the Cpn experts, and recently some of the thinking of combining abx has gained some interest. Chronic Chlamydia Trachomatis (primarily ocular and genitourinary infections) is associated with similar challenges as Cpn (even if they are just related and "distantly" so, there are a lot of similarities, Some illnesses can be caused by both Cpn and Ct, e g Chronic reactive arthritis [Carter et al: Reactive arthritis — Chlamydiae as Etiologic Agents in Chronic Undifferentiated Spondylarthritis; ARTHRITIS & RHEUMATISM vol. 60, No. 5, May 2009, pp 1311–1316]
