COVID-19 could cause erectile dysfunction in patients, doctor warns

People infected with COVID-19 may be likely to suffer long-term health effects from the virus, including erectile dysfunction among men, according to medical experts.

Infectious disease expert Dr Dena Grayson says there are now fears the disease could affect a man’s ability to perform in the bedroom even after they’ve recovered.

‘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 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,’ she added.

Although the majority of people seem to recover from COVID-19, Grayson warned they expect to see more ‘long term negative consequences of infection’, as time goes on, including neurological complications.
