Man’s penis shrinks due to COVID-19, doctors say effect irreversible


A man in the US has claimed his penis shrunk by 1.5 inches as a result of vascular damage he suffered after contracting COVID-19.

The victim, who identified himself as a heterosexual man in his thirties, said the issue has had a ‘profound impact on my self-confidence and abilities in bed.’

The man said he contracted a severe bout of the virus in July of last year, but after being discharged from hospital upon recovery, was left with a strange case of erectile disfunction.

This affliction was remedied with treatment over time, but to his dismay, his penis had contracted considerably – a condition doctors told him is likely permanent due to vascular damage in his erectile tissue.

It comes as a University College London study of 3,400 people found that a shortened penis was a rare symptom among the 200 who developed long COVID-19.
