Survivorship of COVID-19 may be linked to erectile dysfunction, according to researchers. According to the study, there are three conditions that can cause ED in males who have had the virus:
Vascular Changes: We know that the vascular system and the reproductive system are linked because erectile function is a predictor of heart disease. COVID-19 has also been linked to hyperinflammation throughout the body, particularly in the heart and adjacent muscles. As a result of a new or worsening vascular disease induced by the virus, blood supply to the penis can become stopped or narrowed.
Psych issues: Sexual activity and mental health are inextricably linked. The virus and pandemic’s stress, worry, and sadness have been related to sexual dysfunction and low mood.
Related Health Concerns: ED is frequently a symptom of a deeper issue. Men in poor health are more likely to acquire ED as well as have a strong reaction to COVID-19. Because the infection can induce a variety of health problems, poor overall health is a cause for concern, both in terms of ED and other complications.
May 2022 Update:
“A new University of Florida Health study found that men with COVID-19 are more than three times more likely to be diagnosed with erectile dysfunction, or ED, than those who are not sickened by the coronavirus.”
