While contracting the Covid-19 virus is bad enough, it appears that some men are also experiencing bizarre side effects that they never would have expected.
As for this man’s case, he claimed that his genitalia has become shorter after recovering from his Covid-19 infection. The US citizen came up with the shocking statement on the sexual health podcast “How To Do It”, where he appeared as a guest.
During the session, the man stated that he had also suffered from some erectile dysfunction problems after he was discharged from the hospital, Mashable SEA reported. The 30-year-old man revealed, “My penis had shrunk. Before I got sick, I was above average – not huge, but definitely bigger than normal. Now I’ve lost about an inch-and-a-half, and have become decidedly less than average.”
In commenting about the case, the doctors stated that the man is likely to have problems related to vascular (vein) damage in the erectile tissue of his penis. “My doctors seem to think it’s permanent,” he said. “It shouldn’t really matter, but it had a profound impact on my self confidence in my abilities in bed.”
According to the portal, a study conducted by a team from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine last year, looked at two male patients who had shown impotency after contracting the Covid-19 virus. The result of the research, which was published in the World Journal of Men’s Health, revealed that both men showed signs of blood vessel damage in their penises, compared with other patients who had erectile dysfunction, but had never got infected with the disease.
Another study by the College London University found that 5% of men who had been infected with Covid-19 had suffered having shorter penises, while 15% had sexual dysfunction. Fear not, folks, as it is said that the aforementioned side effects may not last forever.
Albany Medical College urologist Dr. Charles Welliver, who also appeared on the same podcast, said that those who encounter the problem could consider rehabilitative methods for a cure, including devices such as penis pumps or stretchers.
