COVID-19 can affect men’s sexual performance
Contrary to the famous rampant claims of a certain rapper apparently determined to destroy what is left of his once illustrious career, there is no evidence to suggest that the COVID-19 vaccine causes swollen testicles, impotence or the departure of your fiancé. Something that might actually harm your precious genitals and interfere with your ability to pick them up, however, is contracting the virus that the vaccine is protecting against.
The COVID-19 pandemic has long been linked to erectile dysfunction and problems with sexual performance, and although some of these problems can be attributed to the stress and emotional burden of simply existing during the chaotic hellish landscape that is life during a pandemic, recent research suggests the virus itself may also be to blame. A report published in March found that men may be six times more likely to develop brief or long-term erectile dysfunction after contracting the virus, while other research has found evidence of various other post-virus health issues that may affect the genitals or lead to sexual function, low testosterone levels, inability to reach orgasm, damage to the testicles, and pain or swelling in the testicles.
“We found that men who had not had these problems before developed quite severe erectile dysfunction after infection with COVID-19,” urologist Ranjith Ramasamy said. National Geographic. After noticing a sharp increase in complaints of sexual dysfunction in patients who had contracted COVID-19, Ramasamy and his colleagues at the Urology Clinic at the University of Miami Hospital performed biopsies on six men aged from 20 to 87 year olds who had battled COVID-19 to determine if the virus was present in their reproductive organs. The team found viral particles hidden in penile tissue and testes for up to eight months after the initial infection. Doctors have also reportedly found evidence of damage to the walls of tiny blood vessels in the penis, which is likely a culprit for erectile dysfunction.
Previous research supports the presence of the virus in the testes, with an earlier report even calling the bullet virus “reservoirs”, which, yuck.
One thing that won’t harm your precious virus reservoirs? To get vaccinated.
“It’s important for people to understand that the COVID vaccination does not affect erectile function,” Ramasamy said. “The virus can have significant long-term side effects, and the vaccine is safe. ”
In other words, if you want to keep your cock and tanks virus-free, go get vaxxed.
