According to The Sun Reports, Urologists say “Covid d*ck” is a real phenomenon, whereby the penis can reduce in size due to damage to blood vessels. A study of 3400 people led by University College London found that of 200 reported long Covid symptoms, a smaller penis was one of the rarer ones.
The victim on its condition:
While speaking to one of the media channels, the man said, “I’m a heterosexual man in my 30s. In July of last year I contracted Covid and was very sick. When I got out of the hospital, I had some erectile dysfunction issues. Those gradually got better with some medical attention, but I seem to be left with a lasting problem. My penis has shrunk. Before I got sick, I was above average, not huge, but definitely bigger than normal. Now I’ve lost about an inch-and-a-half (3.8cm) and become decidedly less than average.”
He further added, “It’s apparently due to vascular damage, and my doctors seem to think it’s likely permanent. It shouldn’t really matter, but it has had a profound impact on my self-confidence in my abilities in bed.”
Statement by American Urologists Ashley Winter:
An American Urologists Ashley Winter explained that penile shrinkage after Covid is a domino effect of erectile dysfunction. She told the podcast, “It is true that having erectile dysfunction leads to shortening. You have this period of time where the penis is not stretching itself out, where it’s not, you know, getting all this full blood into it, and that can lead to scarring of the penis and shortening of the penis. And that’s probably what you know your caller is referring to now.”
The Doctor also said that men are at risk of when the cause of their erectile dysfunction is physical, say for example cancer.
Study by University College London:
University College London conducted a study into long Covid symptoms, identifying 203 symptoms in patients from 56 countries.
Almost 5 percent of men suffered a “decrease in size of testicles/penis”, according to the findings which were published in the Lancet’s EClinical Medicine.
The man asked for advice:
The devastated man was desperate for advice. Fortunately, the experts said that not all hope is lost because there are treatments for erectile dysfunction and its fallout effects.
