Covid symptoms: A low sex drive could linger after initial infection – new study


Share post:

Women, young people, or those from a black or mixed ethnic group were more likely to develop long Covid than others.

Furthermore, certain risk factors put people at greater risk of developing the condition such as smoking, carrying extra weight, and other health conditions already present in the person when they were infected with Covid.

Research Fellow Anuradhaa Subramanian said: “Women are for example more likely to experience autoimmune diseases. Seeing the increased likelihood of women having long covid in our study increases our interest in investigating whether autoimmunity or other causes may explain the increased risk in women.

“These observations will help to further narrow the focus on factors to investigate that may be causing these persistent symptoms after an infection, and how we can help patients who are experiencing them.”
