Evidence suggests that covid-19 infections can reduce sperm counts for months and that the virus can occasionally be found in semen and can even bind directly to sperm cells.

What we know so far about how covid-19 affects sperm suggests that covid-19 infections can reduce sperm count for months, and that the virus can occasionally be found in semen and can even bind directly to sperm cells. Infections with covid-19 can reduce sperm count, and the virus can even bind to receptors on the surface of sperm.

However, there is no evidence to suggest that the effects differ from those seen after other illnesses that involve fever, such as the flu, according to the New Scientist report.
