Doctors in central Wuhan are planning to conduct a long-term study of the effects of COVID-19 on the male reproductive system after a small study of 81 men revealed that coronavirus patients haed roughly half the normal ratio of testosterone after contracting the disease, according to SCMP.
Though still preliminary and not peer reviewed, the study is the first clinical observation of the potential impact of Covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, on the male reproductive system, especially among younger groups.
In a paper published on the preprint research platform medRxiv.org, the researchers – from Zhongnan Hospital of Wuhan University and the Hubei Clinical Research Centre for Prenatal Diagnosis and Birth Health – said they analysed blood samples from 81 men aged 20 to 54 who tested positive for the coronavirus and were hospitalised in January.
The median age of the participants was 38 and roughly 90 per cent of them had only mild symptoms. The samples were collected in the last days of their stay in hospital. -SCMP
Previous studies have shown that coronavirus binds with the protein receptor cell, ACE2, a large number of which are found in the testicles.
Researchers looked at the ratio of testosterone to luteinising hormone (T/LH) - finding that the average ratio for COVID-19 patients was 0.74, around half the normal level. A low T/LH ratio can signal hypogonadism - a malfunction of the testicles which could lead to lower production of the sex hormone.
Testosterone is the main male sex hormone critical for the development of primary and secondary sexual characteristics including testes, muscle, bone mass and body hair. Luteinising hormone is found in both men and women, and best known for its ability to trigger ovulation. -SCMP
Those with hypogonadism can develop large breasts and erectile dysfunction - a condition which can be cured with testosterone treatment.
"Since more than half of the people with Covid-19 were reproductive-aged, more attention should be paid to the effect of Sars-CoV-2 on the reproductive system," the Wuhan researchers wrote - noting that their results were inconclusive and that other factors such as medication and immune system response could also trigger changes in hormones.
As such, the researchers say they plan a long-term study which may include the collection and analysis of sperm samples as well as interviews with coronavirus patients.
Professor of reproductive medicine at Tongji Hospital in Wuhan, Li Yufeng, had predicted in a study that the testicles could become a 'major target' in a coronavirus infection.
Other studies have also suggested that severe acute respiratory syndrome, or Sars, a distant relative of the new coronavirus, could also cause inflammation in the testicles.
A researcher with the State Key Laboratory of Reproductive Medicine at Nanjing Medical University, said the new observations were “highly valuable information” but a bigger sample would be needed to clarify the results. -SCMP
"Many viruses can affect fertility, but not every virus can cause a pandemic. If the impact is long lasting, it can be a problem," said the researcher - speaking on condition of anonymity.

Covid vaccine spike proteins attack male fertility, too
By Ethan Huff - 27. May 2021
The synthetic “spike” proteins generated by Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “vaccines” are capable of harming not just women’s reproductive organs but also men’s, warns Dr. Roger Hodkinson of Western Medical Assessments.
In a recent interview, Dr. Hodkinson explained that there is now “sufficient evidence in the literature” to suggest that vaccine spike proteins express themselves both in the placenta and the testes. For pregnant women, this could mean a terminated pregnancy. For men, it could spell the end of having children altogether.
As for Prince Harry and other “celebrities” encouraging people to go out and get jabbed, Dr. Hodkinson says these people have “nothing between [their] ears” and should be ignored as clueless.
Dr. Hodkinson is a pathologist who has been studying virology, infectious disease and evidence-based medicine for many years. He was educated at the University of Cambridge and University College Hospital Medical School in London before moving to Canada in 1970 and training at the University of British Columbia.
Dr. Hodkinson gained worldwide popularity last fall when he appeared at a meeting of the Edmonton City Council to decry a proposed plan to extend a Chinese Virus mask mandate. In his speech, he called the plandemic “the biggest hoax perpetrated on an unsuspecting public.”
Since then, Dr. Hodkinson has come out full blast in condemnation of Chinese Virus injections, urging an immediate halt to their continued rollout. People who get the jabs are going to regret it, he warns, because many, if not all, of them will lose their reproductive capacity.
“I’m a serious evidence-based career pathologist who has done everything in pathology at national and provincial levels and I take evidence-based science very, very seriously,” he stated at the meeting.
“I’m not a conspiracy theorist. I’m not an anti-vaxxer. I’m none of the above. But when I see certain things in the literature that could – underlined – have serious potential long-term sequelae, I think it’s my duty to stand up and blow the whistle and say, ‘Hey, stop the train, have you seen this? It needs to be looked at.’ I hope it’s wrong but show me the data.”
Legitimate vaccine trials would have taken four years, not six months
The data Dr. Hodkinson was referring to pertains to the expression of the ACE2 receptor in both the placenta and the testes. Excess spike proteins circulating in both – caused by the vaccine – inhibits reproductive function, science has discovered, potentially leading to infertility and sterility.
“And that circulation takes the spike protein everywhere, including the placenta of women who happen to be pregnant at the time, which is a one-time hit for that particular pregnancy, probably not for subsequent ones,” Dr. Hodkinson says. “But there is also potential for a hit on the testes, which of course is not a one-time hit, it could be a permanent hit.”
“In a world where we know that sperm counts have dropped 40 per cent over the last 10 or 20 years – a massive unexplained drop in sperm counts – we don’t need some additional hits on male fertility.”
Simply put, the six-month trials conducted by Big Pharma to test these injections is not even close to being enough to determine whether or not the jabs cause infertility. Dr. Hodkinson says two to four years is a minimum trial window for determining the true effects of experimental injections.
Injecting children, especially, with the shots is a crime against humanity, he contends, calling it “obscene.” Not only do children have almost zero risk of contracting or spreading the Chinese Virus, but the shots will more than likely damage them more than they will adults.

“Sperm Counts Could Be Down To Zero By 2045”
Brink of a fertility crisis: Scientist says plummeting sperm counts caused by everyday products
A 40-year-long study showed sperm counts have dropped by nearly half. Dr. Shanna Swan hypothesizes men will no longer produce sperm by 2045.
By Liz Crawford - 18. May 2021
TAMPA, Fla. — You’ve probably heard of someone who struggled with infertility. Maybe you even know a couple who had treatment to help them have a baby.
Fertility issues are pretty common, and new research shows we could actually be on the brink of a fertility crisis.
Dr. Shanna Swan, an environmental and reproductive epidemiologist at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, found sperm counts have plummeted over the last four decades.
Faces of infertility
The journey into parenthood has been long and tedious for Cyndel and Chris Surdovel.
They started trying to have a baby four years ago when they were both in their late twenties. They struggled to try to conceive and resorted to in-vitro fertilization. They experienced several failed treatments and a miscarriage.
"When you decide you’re ready to start a family and it doesn’t happen, it starts to become this obsession, and then you just kind of lose the joy of your everyday life," Cyndel Surdovel said.

The Surdovels were diagnosed with “unexplained infertility,” when doctors can't determine the specific reason a couple is struggling to conceive.
"Twenty percent of the couples we see on average have what we call unexplained infertility," said Dr. Celso Silva, the Medical Director at Shady Grove Fertility and Surdovels' doctor.
Infertility is on the rise with at least one in 10 couples struggling to get pregnant in the United States.
"Age is a major factor as far as the reproductive potential of any couple, the age of the female partner," Silva said.
According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, advanced maternal agerefers to women age 35 and older. The term is intended to highlight the increased risk of complications that can occur such as difficulty conceiving, miscarriage and birth defects.

More than age
The age factor is pretty well known, especially among women who seem to be reminded of their "ticking clock" from relatives, friends, or strangers at some point in their lives.
However, new research shows infertility rates could be rising because sperm counts are dropping.
"All we can say is it has significantly declined with no indication that the rate is slowing down," said Swan, a reproductive epidemiologist who spent years studying male sperm counts.
Her research found sperm counts have dropped by half in the last four decades. In 1973, the average ejaculate had 99 million sperm per milliliter. By 2011, the average ejaculate had 47 million sperm per milliliter.

"It’s not just the number of sperm. They have to be shaped well," explained Swan, who described the upstream swim sperm have to travel for conception to occur.
In her new book, "Count Down," Swan says based on the current curve, sperm counts could be down to zero by 2045.

The lifestyle factor
There are already a number of habits researchers have long established that deplete one's sperm count.
Swan says certain occupations, like people who manufacture pesticides, have been shown to have zero sperm along with men who work with lead.
Other factors contributing to low sperm counts include smoking, binge drinking, obesity and stress.
"The number of stressful events you’ve had in just the last couple months lower sperm count," Swan said.
The unknown variables
Here's where things get a little doomsday on us.
Swan hypothesizes other factors that we aren't tracking are leading to an eventual fertility crisis.
She said, "While you can ask people how much they smoke or what drugs they take, you can’t do that with environmental exposures."
Swan believes chemicals from plastics are getting into our bodies, impacting our hormones and ultimately interfering with our reproductive functions. Phthalates are the culprit. Remember that word. Phthalates are chemicals in plastics that lower the bodies’ testosterone.
So how do phthalates get in our bodies?
Swan says they're everywhere. Any food product that is passed through a soft tube in the manufacturing process has likely absorbed harmful chemicals that could creep into our bodies.
"If you eat unprocessed food, particularly, if you can afford it, organic food, then you are avoiding a lot of exposure," Swan said.
However, it's not just food. Swan said creams, nail polishes, fragrances and other health, beauty and cleaning products are oozing with phthalates.
In regards to sperm counts, much of the damage is done when a male is forming inside the mother's uterus.
Swan said the chemicals get into a woman's body, then into the testicles of the fetus and change development.
"When that child becomes old enough to have sperm, they’ll have a low sperm count and be infertile," she said.
Slow the curve
While changing our eating habits and being intentional about what products we use might help slow the curve, Swan says it's not enough.
She said we need entirely new products made of safer materials. It will take government intervention.
"They have to be made of different chemicals. Chemicals that can’t interfere with our hormones," she said.
It’s a call to action many couples, like the Surdovels, who spent years trying to conceive, can get behind.

Where are the Studies?
Scientists have determined that the same spike protein found in SARS viruses is also responsible for the development of the placenta in mammals, including humans, and is therefore an essential prerequisite for a successful pregnancy. If a woman’s body is primed to attack these protein spikes, the immune system may prevent a placenta from being formed, which would render that woman infertile. [*]

Even Mainstream Media telling Men to freeze their Sperm before receiving Coronavirus Vaccine
By Arsenio Toledo- 09. January 2021
Mainstream media outlets are telling men to strongly consider freezing their sperm before receiving a Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine because it can lead to future fertility problems.
This is according to the University of Miami, which is conducting research into the new coronavirus vaccines flooding the United States to ascertain whether or not they can cause infertility and whether they have any other damaging effects.
— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) December 24, 2020
The study is being led by Dr. Ranjith Ramasamy, a reproductive urologist working for the University of Miami Health System and an expert in male infertility, andrology, sexual dysfunction and hypogonadism. He led an earlier study that found that the coronavirus was present in the testicles of men with COVID-19 for up to six months after the initial infection.
“We are evaluating the sperm parameters and quality before the vaccine and after the vaccine,” said Ramasamy. “From the biology of the COVID vaccine, we believe it shouldn’t affect fertility but we want to do the study to make sure that men who want to have kids in the future, to assure them it’s safe to go ahead and get the vaccine.”
While Ramasamy and his team’s initial hypothesis is that the coronavirus vaccine will not affect male fertility in any way, they want to have the data to back up their claim.
Ramasamy and his team are looking for men between the ages of 18 and 50 who are willing to go through a fertility evaluation before they receive the coronavirus vaccine.
“We want to see if there is any decrease in sperm production or quality,” said Dr. Daniel Nassau, a member of the research team and a urology fellow at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.
“We will look at a semen sample before they get the vaccine, and then at three and six months thereafter.”
Study participants are being strongly urged to freeze their sperm prior to vaccination to protect their fertility. (Related: Pfizer coronavirus vaccine warning: No breastfeeding or getting pregnant after being immunized it might damage the child.)
Mainstream media outlets have amplified Ramasamy’s call for men to freeze their sperm before taking the vaccine, including WPLG Local 10, the Miami affiliate of ABC, and WAVY-TV 10, the Portsmouth, Virginia-based local affiliate of NBC.
Prior University of Miami study found COVID-19 affects male fertility
Ramasamy and his team were able to discover that the virus isn’t limited to affecting the respiratory system, but can in fact also be debilitating to male fertility. Their previous study found that COVID-19 has the potential to cause male infertility and can possibly be spread sexually by asymptomatic men.
According to Dr. Robin Poe-Zeigler, the medical director of the New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine in Virginia, research has found that the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2, or ACE2 “receptor,” a specific protein that allows the coronavirus to infect human cells, has been found in tissues around the body, including the lungs, the gastrointestinal tract, the liver and, more importantly, testicular tissue.
This means that the coronavirus can harm testicular tissue even if men with COVID-19 don’t show any symptoms. More research is being conducted to learn just how much of the virus is needed to be present in the testes before it can be detected in semen, and whether or not men can pass the coronavirus like a sexually transmitted disease.
“What they haven’t shown is [if] it actually infects the sperm cell, the actual sperm itself,” said Poe-Zeigler, who admitted that all they know for certain is that COVID-19 can infect testicular tissue. Studies have also failed to show that compromised fertility is long-lasting.
Poe-Zeigler, like mainstream media outlets, is warning men to consider freezing their sperm just in case.
“If we find there are long-lasting impacts, they will have at least one unaffected specimen that they could use for future conception efforts,” said Poe-Zeigler.
Unfortunately, Poe-Zeigler admitted that freezing the sperm isn’t a viable option for everyone because of the time and financial constraints that come with opting for artificial insemination or in vitro fertilization.
This makes the coronavirus vaccines very risky to take for men, especially those who are looking to start a family soon. Journalist Shane Trejo of alternative news website Big League Politics said that the vaccines “may end up causing worse health problems than the COVID-19 virus itself.”
“Big pharma will make out like bandits though so the truth will ultimately be swept under the rug by the globalists,” added Trejo. “The mass hysteria from the scamdemic is the perfect crisis to usher in a one-world technocracy.”

Doctors Have Infertility Concerns About COVID-19 Vaccine
By The Lotus Eaters - 10. December 2020
Go directly to Rumble if your browser doesn't play the video — Doctors Have Infertility Concerns About COVID-19 Vaccine
A new study has revealed that SARS-CoV-2, the virus which causes COVID-19, infects the testicles and likely impacts male fertility. Recall in March we reported that doctors in central Wuhan raised concerns over testicle damage after observing a lowered ratio of testosterone to luteinising hormone (T/LH).
Now, nine months later, a team of 14 researchers from Wuhan, China have published disturbing evidence from a small sample of patients that COVID-19 not only infects the testicles, but may interfere with sperm production by causing inflammation and 'massive' loss in young sperm cells.
The team's findings on how COVID-19 infects testicles corroborates the March reporting - namely, the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein binds to ACE2 receptors, which are produced throughout the body, including the seminiferous tubules which carry sperm while it matures.
"Strikingly, in four of the five cases, GC [germ cell] loss was massive, with only a few GCs left attached to the seminiferous tubules," reads the study, published Monday in Nature, Cellular & Molecular Immunology. Five COVID-19 patients included in the study were aged 51, 62, 70, 78 and 83 years of age, while control patients were 71, 78 and 80. And though they may lie on the older-end of the curve where male fertility has begun to decline, the control group's germ cells were "well aligned around the whole seminiferous tubules" compared to the COVID-19 patients.
"Consistent with the immunohistochemistry results, RT-qPCR showed significantly increased mRNA levels of ACE2 and TMPRSS2 in the testes of all COVID-19 patient compared to control patient testes," reads the report, which "further supports the hypothesis that SARS-CoV-2 is able to attack testicular cells." It is unknown how the virus increases ACE2 production in the testes.
"Collectively, our findings provide direct evidence that SARS-CoV-2 can infect the testis and GCs, indicating the potential impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on spermatogenesis and male fertility."
While the study is small with just five participants, the authors write that "further study is essential to reveal the underlying mechanism of SARS-CoV-2 infection of testicular cells and the correlation of testis infection with the clinical course of COVID-19."
Perhaps men who have recovered from COVID-19 should have their sperm counts tested?

HCG Found in WHO Tetanus Vaccine in Kenya Raises Concern in the Developing World
- October 2017
- Open Access Library Journal 04(10):1-30
Abstract and Figures
In 1993, WHO announced a “birth-control vaccine” for “family planning”. Published research shows that by 1976 WHO researchers had conjugated tetanus toxoid (TT) with human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) producing a “birth-control” vaccine. Conjugating TT with hCG causes pregnancy hormones to be attacked by the immune system. Expected results are abortions in females already pregnant and/or infertility in recipients not yet impregnated. Repeated inoculations prolong infertility. Currently WHO researchers are working on more potent anti-fertility vaccines using recombinant DNA. WHO publications show a long-range purpose to reduce population growth in unstable “less developed countries”. By November 1993 Catholic publications appeared saying an abortifacient vaccine was being used as a tetanus prophylactic. In November 2014, the Catholic Church asserted that such a program was underway in Kenya. Three independent Nairobi accredited biochemistry laboratories tested samples from vials of the WHO tetanus vaccine being used in March 2014 and found hCG where none should be present. In October 2014, 6 additional vials were obtained by Catholic doctors and were tested in 6 accredited laboratories. Again, hCG was found in half the samples. Subsequently, Nairobi’s AgriQ Quest laboratory, in two sets of analyses, again found hCG in the same vaccine vials that tested positive earlier but found no hCG in 52 samples alleged by the WHO to be vials of the vaccine used in the Kenya campaign 40 with the same identifying batch numbers as the vials that tested positive for hCG. Given that hCG was found in at least half the WHO vaccine samples known by the doctors involved in administering the vaccines to have been used in Kenya, our opinion is that the Kenya “anti-tetanus” campaign was reasonably called into question by the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association as a front for population growth reduction.

Common pain reliever may increase risk of autism, ADHD: study
By Hannah Sparks - 28. May 2021
An analysis of more than 73,000 mother-child pairs throughout Europe has revealed strong association between paracetmol/acetaminophen use in pregnant women and the development of autism and ADHD in children.Alamy Stock Photo
An alarming new study of pregnant women and newborns has uncovered a potential link between acetaminophen and some neuro-developmental disorders — namely autism and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
A team of researchers from the University of Barcelona analyzed health data from over 73,000 mother-child pairs throughout Europe. In support of several prior studies indicating similar results, they found that unborn children exposed to acetaminophen, compared to non-exposed fetuses, were 19% more likely to land on the spectrum of autism, and 21% more likely to exhibit symptoms of ADHD in childhood. (Post-natal exposure to the drug in children was not associated with symptoms of autism or ADHD.)
Acetaminophen — or paracetamol, as it’s frequently called elsewhere — is far and away one of the most commonly used analgesics on the market, with 52 million Americans weekly consuming the drug. It is found in more than 600 different medications, both prescription-based and over-the-counter, according to the Consumer Healthcare Products Association.
Between 46% and 56% of pregnant women in developed countries are known to use acetaminophen, which is recommended as the safest analgesic/antipyretic for children and pregnant women, according to the report. But results of the study could spell a shift in how some doctors advise on treating pain and fever during pregnancy.
“Paracetamol is the safest anti-inflammatory medication for prenatal life. But even paracetamol has shown side effects,” said Jordi Sunyer, a co-author of the report now published in the European Journal of Epidemiology.
Yet researchers point out that acetaminophen and paracetemol could prevent more dangerous complications associated with fever during pregnancy. “So, just [take] it if required,” Sunyer added in a statement to Daily Mail.
Previous studies have shown that acetaminophen or paracetamol can make its way into the fetus’s body by seeping through the placental barrier, a notably thin wall of cellular tissue that helps to protect the fetal circulatory system. Once there, the drugs are thought to have the potential to disrupt the flow of hormones, leading to impaired development of the fetus.
“Our findings are consistent with previous research,” said lead researcher and author Sílvia Alemany in a separate press statement.
Population Control Alert: Ibuprofen Is A Tool Of Agenda 21
Aspirin, Acetaminophen, and Ibuprofen are all anti-androgenic
By Alexander Light - 11. January 2018
A study published Monday detailed the effects of the drug Ibuprofen on male fertility. The drug was shown to cause a hormonal condition in young men that is linked to infertility.
According to CNN, a study published Monday in the journalProceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that when taking ibuprofen in doses commonly used by athletes, a small sample of young men developed a hormonal condition that typically begins, if at all, during middle age.
This condition is linked to reduced fertility, which some say makes ibuprofen perfect for Agenda 21’s population control.
Joe Joseph of The Daily Sheeple says he’s been vindicated. “I feel vindicated today! A couple months back I put out a video about how ibuprofen could be a tool for Agenda 21,” said Joseph.
Joseph’s take on Agenda 21 is accurate. According to the United Nations website, Agenda 21 is meant to be “sustainable development.”
But of course, it’s dictated by the elites, and one goal is to concentrate the population into megacities. People crammed together in tight quarters are easier to control and manipulate than those living more rurally.
“We’ve seen a lot of issues with this class of drugs known as NSAIDs,” says Joseph.
“Sold under brands such as Advil or Motrin to help reduce swelling; to help reduce pain in people, you know, an over the counter drug. And the Consumer Health Product Association, a trade group that represents manufacturers of over the counter medications, says that [they] ‘support and encourage continued research and promotes ongoing consumer education to help safe use of over the counter medicines.’ And they say the safety of active ingredients in these products has been well documented and supported for decades by scientific studies and real-world use.”
But what about all of those who die using NSAIDs? Is that the “real-world use” that is being referred to? NSAIDs were actually responsible for more deaths in 2012 than opioid overdoses, according to numbers gathered on Practical Pain Management’s website.
It’s also concerning that this research is simply a continuation of that which began with pregnant women.
“A team of French and Danish researchers began exploring the health effects when a mother-to-be took any one of three mild pain reliever found in medicine chests. And that was Aspirin, Acetaminophen, and Ibuprofen,” said Joseph.
“What they found was that… all three drugs are anti-androgenic. Meaning they disrupt male hormones and the three drugs even increase the likelihood that male babies would be born with congenital malformation [when a woman who is pregnant with a male baby takes the drugs].”
This lead to the study on adult males who have taken these three drugs, and it was discovered that ibuprofen had the strongest infertility effects.
Look into these side effects a little further and evaluate for yourself how harmful a drug could be on the body before taking it.
