A man suffered the reduction of his penis by almost 4 centimeters due to a side effect of Covid-19
Doctors explained that coronavirus infection can cause vascular damage to erectile tissue and said his condition is likely to be permanent.
The patient, who identified himself as a heterosexual man in his thirties, told the sex advice podcast How To Do It that after suffering severely from the disease in July of last year and having to be hospitalized, he was left with an effect unexpected secondary: erectile dysfunction.
He then added: “My penis has shrunk. Before I got sick, I was above average, not huge, but definitely bigger than normal. I have now lost about an inch and a half and am decidedly below average. It appears to be due to vascular damage, and my doctors seem to think it’s likely to be permanent.”
