Bad news for men who have had coronavirus: one of the long-term side effects may be erectile dysfunction. During a recent interview, Dena Grayson, MD, Ph.D., founder of MedExpert Consulting, stated that ED could be an issue for men down the line.
She said, “We now know that people can have long term health effects from this virus, neurologic complications, and now, for men who are watching this — there is some real concern here that men could have long term issues of erectile dysfunction from this virus, because we know that it causes issues in the vasculature.”
She added, “So this is something of real concern. Not just that this virus can kill you, but can actually cause long-term, life-long, potential complications.”
