A Man Claims His Penis Shrunk 1.5 Inches After Having COVID-19… UH-OH!

We all know COVID-19 can produce a long list of symptoms: a cough, runny nose, headache, sore throat, body aches, fever, loss of smell and taste, shortness of breath, pink eye, brain fog, nightmares, and the list really does go on and on.

And unfortunately for men across the world, a new symptom might be the shrinking of your penis.

A man in his 30s wrote a letter to the ‘How To Do It‘ podcast this week, claiming his penis shrunk 1.5 inches after having COVID-19.

In July of last year, I contracted COVID and was very sick. When I got out of the hospital, I had some erectile dysfunction issues. [The erectile dysfunction] gradually got better with some medical attention, but I seemed to be left with a lasting problem. Before I got sick [my penis] 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.

This man says he saw a doctor about the issue and the medical professional hinted that the virus can cause vascular damage, which is probably why his penis can’t reach its full potential anymore. The doctor also added the impairment would likely be permanent.

It shouldn’t really matter. But it has had a profound impact on my self-confidence and my abilities in bed. I know you can’t give me back my missing length and girth, but I was wondering if you could give me any advice on what to do now.

In response to this poor man’s plea for help, Dr. Charles Welliver, a urologist and Director of Men’s Health at Albany Medical College, claimed this exact phenomenon is rare, but not unheard of it when it comes to COVID.

You can connect these dots. COVID [causes] a mass of respiratory symptoms that leads to a lot of the deaths. But there’s also pretty significant vascular issues that occur with guys. When guys get ED, they get a lack of erections for a while, and when that happens they actually do get some shrinkage. COVID d – – k is a real thing.

The slightly good news? Doctors say it could be possible to gain some of that length back by doing rehabilitative practices like penis push-ups or even buying a penis vacuum.

A typical regimen would be starting something like Viagra or Cialis to improve blood flow. Another thing would be to buy a penis vacuum device and do penis exercise with it or penis push-ups.

So there you go, folks. If you think COVID took inches off your penis, it’s time you start working that thing out. Hit the penis gym. Get some reps in, bruh.
