Vaccines Don’t Affect Male Fertility, But COVID Certainly Can
Congratulations! Dr. Zaher Merhi was featured on InisdeHook, which went live on September 13, 2021.
In the feature entitled, “Vaccines Don’t Affect Male Fertility, But COVID Certainly Can”, Dr. Merhi discussed rumors surrounding infertility due to the COVID-19 vaccine, erectile dysfunction due to COVID-19 and his professional experience with his patients. Dr. Merhi stated, “Well, the reality is, the testicles have receptors for the coronavirus, and when the virus enters the human body, it needs to bind onto something called ACE2 receptor. These are found throughout the body (lunge, mouth, heart, etc.). Unlike the ovaries, which do not have a receptor for the virus, the testicles do, which is why COVID-19 can affect sperm production. A number of viruses, including Ebola and SARS-CoV-1, have also shown to affect the sperm, because of, again, the viruses targeting the receptors in the testicles.”
The feature credited Dr. Merhi as a board-certified OBGYN, Reproductive Endocrinologist, and the Founder of Rejuvenating Fertility Center. The article included the direct link to the RFC website.
