COVID-19 may cause damage to male functions

COVID-19 may cause damage to male functions


COVID-19 may cause damage to male functions.   

Infection with the new coronavirus may cause damage to male functions, but the impact does not stop there.


Ms. Susan (pseudonym) in Ireland recently encountered an upset, and her husband suddenly “failed”.


Susan said: “My husband is in his 70s. He was diagnosed with the new coronavirus in September last year, which made me very nervous.

Fortunately, because he loves sports and is healthy, his symptoms are still mild after infection. , Soon he recovered.”


“However, after his COVID-19 healed, there was a phenomenon that surprised and embarrassed both of us: my husband is’not working’ anymore (note: male erectile dysfunction, or ED).

We didn’t take it too seriously at the beginning. , But almost 4 months have passed since he was cured of COVID-19 , and we can no longer sit back and watch.

We are eager to get an authoritative answer: Is this the cause of the COVID-19 virus? After all, before my husband was infected with the COVID-19 virus, Our sex lives are harmonious.”


One stone stirred up a thousand waves. “Infection with the new coronavirus may affect men’s sexual well-being”, is this true?

There is indeed a link between ED and new coronavirus pneumonia

As the COVID-19 epidemic spreads globally, many front-line clinicians have successively received feedback from patients: many male patients who have recovered from the COVID-19 pneumonia have found that their “power” is no longer.

A study in the latest issue of the Journal of Endocrinological Investigation (Journal of Endocrinological Investigation) also discussed this.


Professor Emmanuele Jannini and his colleagues at the University of Rome Tor Vergata found that there is a clear link between ED and COVID-19.

They gave three main reasons for men with ED after contracting COVID-19 :


1. Overall health issues

In general, ED is usually a sign of underlying health problems. Patients with poor health are more likely to develop ED, and usually they will become more severely ill after contracting the new coronavirus.

Since COVID-19 may exacerbate (or cause) many physical problems, it is no wonder that COVID-19 is associated with ED and other long-term symptoms.


2. Psychological problems

Sexual activity is closely related to the human psychology. In addition to causing physical damage to people, new coronavirus pneumonia may also cause mental health problems.

After contracting new coronavirus pneumonia, many people become depressed and anxious. These two kinds of bad emotions lead to excessive mental stress, which may cause male ED.


3. Cardiovascular problems

In addition to the new coronavirus attacking the human respiratory system, many people who have had new coronavirus pneumonia have developed cardiovascular problems.

ED itself is one of the important indicators for predicting heart disease, and the vascular system and the reproductive system are interconnected.

Infection with the new coronavirus will cause the level of inflammation in the heart and circulatory system to rise, so the blood supply to the male penis may be blocked, leading to ED.


Medical experts recommend that if a male patient develops ED after being infected with the new coronavirus, the patient and his family should not be overly alarmed or anxious about this phenomenon.

This may cause serious psychological barriers for men, leading to more unsatisfactory future performance.

There is no definite conclusion to prove how long this phenomenon will last, so it is best not to focus on this matter, you can try other ways to bring happiness to each other.





The COVID-19 epidemic may cause a large number of male ED

Dr. Judson Brandeis, a U.S. urologist and an expert in male sex medicine in California, is worried that the new coronavirus pneumonia pandemic will cause a large number of male patients to develop ED.


He explained: “Men’s erectile function is highly dependent on pressurized blood flow. Blood flow starts in the heart, pulsates through the large arteries, and then flows through the capillaries between the body’s organs and cells.

We already know that diabetes, High cholesterol and smoking can damage the inner walls of blood vessels in the body and cause ED in men. At present, the same is true for new coronavirus pneumonia.”


This statement is simple and easy to understand. But for ED caused by the new coronavirus, there is still a relatively complicated argument in the academic community, which may explain more why a large number of men who have been infected with the new coronavirus have ED.


Dr. Judson Brandeis said that the new coronavirus “hijacks” human cells to replicate new copies of itself, and then “releases” them into various cell bodies in the human body.

But because our body has never “seen” the new coronavirus before, it has not yet been able to develop antibodies for targeted defense.


In response to the new coronavirus, the human body tries to eliminate “invaders” by launching a large-scale non-specific immune response. The huge immune response in the human body will eventually “do not distinguish between ourselves and the enemy”, which will destroy the host itself while destroying pathogens. Vascular endothelial cells are particularly affected in this process.

This is a single layer of flat epithelium lining the inner surface of the heart, blood vessels and lymphatic vessels, which is responsible for forming the inner walls of blood vessels.

This means that the “cytokine storm” caused by the new coronavirus will eventually lead to narrowing of human blood vessels and restricted blood flow, thereby increasing the possibility of ED.


Currently, some clinical trials are exploring the use of inhaled nitric oxide (NO) to assist the treatment of ED, which is a chemical substance naturally produced in the human body that can relax blood vessels and increase blood flow. According to Brandeis, the results of this therapy have been optimistic so far.




Coronavirus may cause more long-term effects on men

Dr. Ryan Berglund, a urologist at the Cleveland Clinic in the United States, said that for young men who develop ED after contracting the new coronavirus, “this may be a sign of some more serious health problems.”


In addition to ED, another long-term symptom that has caused widespread concern among clinicians is that men may develop potential testicular damage after infection with new coronavirus pneumonia.

However, it is still too early to judge whether this damage is a long-term damage and whether it will affect male fertility.

The patient’s age factor should also be taken into account, because it is one of the important reasons for the patient to develop severe illness or even death.


Dr. Berglund said that the current academic community has only just begun to understand the long-term symptoms that the new coronavirus may cause, including blood clots, neurological problems, damage to multiple organs such as the heart, lungs, and kidneys, and negative effects on the male reproductive system.

There are many people who were in good health before contracting the new coronavirus, but they may still experience various long-term symptoms.


To this end, many medical experts call for the general population to be vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus, and the most effective way to defeat the COVID-19 virus is to vaccinate on a large scale.

There have been rumors that vaccination with the COVID-19 vaccine may affect human DNA and even cause infertility, but these rumors have ultimately proved to be false information fabricated by anti-vaccists.

After all, if everyone refuses to be vaccinated against the COVID-19 n virus, the COVID-19 virus may raging around the world for a longer period of time, which will cause the death of tens of thousands of innocent people and add countless suffering to society and families.


Berglund said that before the COVID-19 vaccine is fully popularized, he hopes that these annoying long-term symptoms of nCOVID-19 pneumonia can remind people to remember to wash their hands frequently, wear a mask, and maintain social distance when in contact with others. This will be more important to protect yourself and others.
