New Study Claims COVID-19 Can Affect a Man’s Reproductive Organs
There's nothing good whatsoever about this new study.
A new study found that COVID-19 invades some men’s testicles and in some cases, it stays there even after they've recovered from the virus.
According to WLNS, researchers at the university tested the testicles of men who died from COVID-19 and found the virus inside the reproductive organs. They also tested a living man who recovered from COVID-19 and the virus was still inside his testicles.
Dr. Ranjith Ramasamy, University of Miami:
This we were very surprised with because even after the infection was cleared he had some fevers and cold that got better. Six weeks or eight weeks later, after the infection he tested negative, but the virus was still present in the testes. This was surprising because we found the virus could probably linger in the testes a lot longer than men developed symptoms.
Attacking the lungs and leaving behind damage was one thing, now, we're at risk of the same happening to our junk bags? The hits just keep on coming with this virus.
At least now they know why some men that have COVID-19 also suffer from testicular pain.
Patients who want to have kids in the future who haven’t completed their families, I think there is a rationale for sperm production to be affected. We are urging men who either develop testicular pain or want to have families in the future to check their sperm count to make sure they have healthy and viable sperm.
I didn't think that the virus could be transmitted sexually but apparently, that's something researchers are still trying to figure out.
