One Inch Less: The Surprising Effect of COVID on a Man’s Genitalia

During the course of the pandemic, various investigations have found that having COVID can negatively affect the sexual and reproductive health of men. Recently, research found that the disease can reduce the quality of semen, but a man aired that COVID had a surprising effect on her genitals by shrinking them by more than an inch less.

On the podcast How to Do It, specializing in sexuality, an American man who said he was in his 30s explained his case with the intention of receiving medical help. “When I got out of the hospital, I had some erectile dysfunction problems. Those gradually improved with some medical care, but it seems that I was left with a lasting problem. My penis has shrunk ”, he related.

The subject also assured that before becoming infected “it was above average, not huge, but definitely larger than normal. I have now lost about an inch and a half and am decidedly below average”. The doctors explained that her problem was caused by vascular damage as a consequence of COVID.

Research published in The Lancet found that penis shrinkage along with 200 other effects can be symptoms of prolonged COVID. Dr. Ashley Winter, a Portland urologist, explained on the podcast that the contraction of the penis after suffering from COVID is an effect derived from erectile dysfunction, which can cause shortening.

You have this period of time in which the penis does not stretch, in which it does not receive all this blood, and that can cause scarring on the penis and shortening of the penis. And that is probably what your interlocutor is referring to now, ”said the specialist. When erectile dysfunction is caused by psychological effects there is no risk of shortening, but if it is caused by physical reasons, such as a virus, there is a probability.

When the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19 enters the endothelial cells of the blood vessels of the penis, the blood flow is not adequate. Dr. Winter noted that it is possible to treat this problem by stretching the penis with exercises or devices such as vacuum pumps, which are commonly used to treat small genitalia due to disease or natural reasons.
