Doctor Warns COVID-19 Could Cause Erectile Dysfunction In Recovered Patients

Some medical experts say that people infected with COVID-19 may be likely to suffer serious long-term health effects from the virus, including erectile dysfunction among men.

According to the Daily Mail, Infectious disease expert Dr. Dena Grayson claims there are now fears the disease could affect a man’s ability to perform in the bedroom even after they’ve recovered from the virus.

“There is some real concern here that men could have long-term issues of erectile dysfunction from this virus because we know that it causes issues in the vasculature,” Grayson told NBC Chicago’s LX this week. The word vasculature refers to the blood vessels or arrangement of blood vessels in an organ or part.

“This is something that is of real concern – [it’s] not just that this virus can kill you but can actually cause long-term, lifelong, potentially, complications,” Dr. Grayson said.

Although most people seem to recover from COVID-19, Dr. Grayson warned that medical experts expect to see more “long term negative consequences of infection” as time goes on, including neurological complications.
