Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is not associated with worse outcomes in men with COVID-19 infections, according to a new Journal of Sexual Medicine study.
Previous research has found that men with COVID-19 tend to have more serious cases than women do. Scientists have been investigating what role testosterone might play.
In the current study, researchers compared retrospective data from 32 men on TRT who were diagnosed with COVID-19 and 63 men with COVID-19 who did not take testosterone.
Rates of hospitalization, thromboembolic events, and death were similar for the two groups.
This week in the Women's Sexual Health forum, ISSM members are discussing the case of a 30-year-old woman with severe SLE/lupus.
The patient would like to be intimate with her husband, but she experiences severe pain during intercourse.
