Real-time updates: Coronavirus could affect fertility, researchers say


A new study from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine has uncovered the potential impacts COVID-19 can have on male fertility and sexually transmitted diseases.

The researchers examined the autopsy tissues of six men who died from COVID-19 infection and found that the virus was still in their testicles.

They also found COVID-19 in the testicles of a 28-year-old male patient who had the coronavirus and recovered without showing symptoms.

“We also identified the presence of the virus in a man who underwent a testicular biopsy for infertility but had a previous history of COVID-19,” said Dr. Ranjith Ramasamy, associate professor and director of reproductive urology at Miller School.
