Globally, the ongoing corona infection for more than two years has seriously affected health. While people experienced lung-heart complications during infection with the delta variant, Omicron and the recently discovered XE variant have been shown to be highly contagious in studies. Many long-term side effects of corona infection are also known, whose effect can last for a year in people. Meanwhile, in a recent research, scientists have told that corona infection is also affecting the fertility of men.

Scientists had different opinions in earlier studies regarding the effect of Kovid-19 on fertility. At the same time, in this research, scientists say that even if there has been a mild-moderate level of infection of Kovid-19 in men, then some people may have to face fertility problems. ACS Omega Journal Scientists have made this claim in this research published in. Let us know about this research in further detail.

Fertility being affected by Kovid-19

For research, scientists have made this claim by analyzing the level of protein in the semen of men who have recovered from Kovid-19. The study, led by researchers from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay, has found that even mild or moderate levels of COVID-19 can cause changes in the levels of proteins related to reproductive function in men, which can be The direct effect is being seen in the form of reduction in fertility. People have been advised to take special care in this regard.

What did the study find?

For this study, researchers from IIT Bombay analyzed semen samples from 10 healthy and 17 Kovid-19 cured men. The average age of the participants ranged from 20 to 45, and none of them had any prior fertility problems. The team of researchers found that men who recovered from Kovid-19 had decreased sperm count and their motility compared to healthy participants.

decreased levels of reproductive proteins

During the study, the researchers analyzed the proteins in the semen using liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry. In this trial, participants who recovered from Kovid-19 were found to have a high level of 27 proteins and a minimum level of 21. These proteins play a special role in reproductive functions. Two reproductive proteins – semologin-1 and prosaposyn – were found to be less than half their normal levels in people who had recovered from COVID-19.

What is the conclusion of the study?

Based on the study, the researchers say that it is clearly seen in this research that SARS-CoV-2 infection can have a direct or indirect effect on the reproductive health of men that persists even after they have recovered from the infection. However, the researchers say that a large-scale study is still needed to confirm the findings, so that more clear results can be obtained in this regard. Currently, this research indicates that COVID-19 affects male fertility.
