Can COVID cause erectile dysfunction?

“One study found that people infected with the virus were more than 5 times more likely to develop ED.

In another small study, researchers took penis tissue samples from two men who’d been infected with COVID-19. One had had severe symptoms, the other mild. The samples were taken before both men had surgery for severe ED symptoms.

The scientists found COVID-19 viral particles and endothelial dysfunction long after the two men first had their infections.”
