Can Covid Cause Erectile Dysfunction?
Can contracting Covid-19 result in erectile dysfunction?
A couple of studies found that people infected with the COVID-19 virus were more likely to develop ED. And researchers suggested this could be due to the virus’s ability to affect heart health in general. Also, the virus has been linked to endothelial dysfunction. And although some men have reported ED as a side effect of COVID-19, researchers suggested that ED in these cases was related to poor general health and the mental health issues associated with COVID-19 (e.g., stress, anxiety, and other negative emotion). However, these cases of ED usually resolve on their own shortly after recovery from COVID-19.
