US urologist says some men with Long Covid symptoms experiencing 'penis shortening'
Speaking on a podcast the MD said erectile dysfunctioning caused by Covid symptoms could lead to scarring and shortening
A doctor has controversially claimed cases of Long Covid could cause the shortening of a penis in rare cases.
Speaking on the How to Do It podcast, in a show called, ‘I have COVID D***, Can I Grow It Back?’, urologist Ashley Winter explained how blood flow to the penis can be affected by coronavirus.
She explained that erectile dysfunctioning, which can be caused by Covid, can eventually lead to “shortening”.
She added: “You have this period of time where the penis is not stretching itself out, where it’s not, you know, getting all this full blood into it, and that can lead to scarring of the penis and shortening of the penis.”
