COVID-19 attacking male erections: 'Mask up to keep it up'
VACCINE SCENESaturday, April 17, 2021
YOUNG Jamaican men should take notice of what COVID-19 is doing to male erections and go get the vaccine as soon as it is available to you.
According to a just-released study, the virus increases the risk of developing impotence by nearly six times in a reallife situation.
As if that was not enough, the study also found that men with erectile dysfunction (ED), or impotence, are over five times more likely to have COVID-19.
The study, which was led by Dr Emmanuele A Jannini, professor of endocrinology and medical sexology, University of Rome Tor Vergata, Rome, Italy, was published on March 20, 2021 in Andrology.
ED can be both a short-term and a long-term complication of COVID-19, Jannini suggests.
“When offered, men should have the COVID vaccination. It also gives a whole new meaning to wearing the mask, “mask up to keep it up,” he says.
“It could possibly have the added benefit of preventing sexual dysfunction.”
