A man claims that COVID-19 caused his penis to shrink.



The anonymous male, who is in his 30s, was hospitalised after contracting coronavirus last year and claims that the disease has left him with a shrunken penis and erectile dysfunction.

In a letter to Slate's 'How To Do It' podcast, the man explained: "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."

The man confessed that the disease means his genitals are now more than an inch smaller than before he had the virus.

He said: "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 and become decidedly less than average."

Multiple medical studies have linked COVID-19 with erectile dysfunction, with an Italian study revealing that 28 per cent of men who had contracted coronavirus had experienced the problem.
