Last October one of the key researchers on PSSD noticed a thread on Reddit about sexual dysfunction post vaccine. Apparently the thread has been quarantined and you have to join the Reddit group to access it – this is likely true about a lot of vaccine related threads.
Here are two testimonies that appear. These are striking for anyone who has PSSD or PFS or post isotretinoin problems.
Anyone else experience a loss of sensitivity in the genital area and a loss of sex drive after covid vaccination? I get this isn’t a life threatening issue but it’s extremely frustrating. I find that if I try to have sexual thoughts that I used to have to get me aroused, my brain and vagina area are disconnected. Though when I masturbate I find I can still orgasm but it’s not to the same intensity and I find I take a longer time to have it and use higher intensity to get there. It feels like I’ve lost overall sensation in the area. My sex drive wasn’t affected at all after the first dose but it did after the second in August. Did anyone experience the same and if so did anyone notice improvement or overall recovery and how long did it take? Are there alternative treatments or supplementation that helped? Many men have mentioned this issue but not so often that women do. 25F here, always had a high sex drive prior.
33m Yes 100% having all these problems. My brain and dick are disconnected, that’s a good way to put it I hadn’t thought of it that way. Sensitivity is lower, orgasm intensity lower, libido lower. I am 5 months removed from a single J&J shot. Started taking cialis recently, although sporadically because it makes me feel like trash, have noticed a little improvement when I take it but overall things are not good. I’m still having days where I feel like maybe things are improving and then inevitably I downturn and unable to get hard for like 4 days in a row. I’ve tried a whole bunch of supplements and nothing has seemed to make any difference. Doctor said the culprit is likely endothelial dysfunction, possibly what’s happening to you as well
There the matter stayed until two weeks ago, when Jean Rees (@JeanRees10) whose tweets are among the most followable in the twitterverse, let me know that there were 166 reports of Erectile Dysfunction and 5 of anorgasmia on VAERS, the US vaccine adverse events reporting system.
I have only looked through twenty or so but these give a different picture to the Reddit posts. They are mostly men presenting within a few days of vaccination to an Emergency Department (ED) with ED (Erectile Dysfunction).
Given that VAERS is said to only get 1% of reports for matters that are not life-threatening and that this is something that many people are coy about, although perhaps not quite so coy as when the problem starts very closely linked to an event like a vaccination, who knows how many the true total might be.
Being medically trained I’m supposed to know something about these things but it was not clear what could be going on – until an extraordinary accident happened.
The hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy threw an infinitely improbable bit of text at me. It didn’t come from VAERS, Reddit or any social media source. It came from material as heavily guarded as the contents of Fort Knox and should not have come my way. It seems likely that not even Pfizer, whose vaccine trial it came from, or FDA will know about it.
This is the google translation.
The pain is occasional and mild. I attach by mail the reports of the ultrasounds. Soft tissue ultrasound: Penile region is explored. Glans and bulbocavernosus echo structure preserved. No pathological images are observed at the time of the study. Penile color Doppler: In basal conditions, the cavernous arteries are explored, observing them with its light permeability and speeds at the lower limit of normal (average speed of 15 cm per second) and flow pattern preserved.
At the level of the ventral face, an echogenic image is observed inside the vein, coinciding with the indurated area. dorsal, compatible with thrombosis, which generates total occlusion of the lumen of the vessel. The dorsal arteries are located permeable. The patient is outpatient, oligosymptomatic awaiting consultation with the specialist.
This man has thrombosis (a clot) in the dorsal vein of his penis. Googling this and possible causes will bring you to Mondor Syndrome. The good news is that Mondor Syndrome will usually clear up in six to nine weeks – but we don’t know for sure in the case of this never previously recorded cause. It can be painful but does not kill libido as happened to the people reporting to Reddit.
The next step was to google the published clinical safety report from the Pfizer trial and search under sex – nothing. Several hours later it occurred to me to search under erectile – semi-bingo. There were 5 cases – one on the vaccine and four on placebo.
The interesting bit of this was the trick Pfizer, or Icon, or someone, then played to make placebo look even worse and produce a table with one on vaccine and six on placebo. The trick is to express the figures in terms of patient exposure years – wherever you see patient exposure years you should suspect a drug company is hiding something. Patient Exposure years is all through the Comirnaty Clinical Safety report.
Googling thrombosis didn’t turn up the missing dark matter. There was one mention of penile vein thrombosis – on placebo. Everybody knows that Comirnaty and other Covid vaccines can cause thrombosis but googling all thromboses gives almost no cases, seven on the vaccine versus five on placebo which become seven versus seven – when converted to patient exposure years.
So what’s going on? Well the infinitely improbable case description above came from a file where Pfizer (or Icon the company that really ran the trial – or some subcontractor in between) appeared to be actively trying to make cases disappear.
Did I just happen upon a trace of one of the four placebo cases of ED from a trial of 40,000 people? Or were this man’s problems about to vanish because he wasn’t on placebo? If Pfizer, or Icon who subcontracted to the Platinum Research Network, who subcontracted to Ventavia or any of the other operations monitoring this trial in several different countries could be trusted, we could opt for improbable draw of one placebo case out of 40,000 people. It seems more likely that there is less infinitely improbable explanation.
Are Vaccines Safe
People who have been dependent on SSRIs or who have post SSRI syndromes like PSSD, or people previously harmed by almost any drug have contacted us and asked is it safe to take these vaccines. The answer has always been – that RxISK has no reason to think its not safe.
What’s being said is that we haven’t had convincing stories from people previously harmed who now have a superimposed harm.
What’s not being said is that the academic literature in the very best journals about all our treatments is the greatest concentration of fake literature on earth and there is therefore little reason to believe any of the data these articles offer that indicating there are no harms on treatment.
The Guardian and New York Times and BBC and Facebook will tell you that the trials of these vaccines showed that there were only very few, pretty minor and transient adverse events from any of these vaccines.
Unfortunately the academic articles on which both mainstream and social media depend are not believable. Everybody likes to blame the media but in fact we’d be safer having our trials published in the New York Times rather than the New England Journal of Misinformation.
This report of Sexual Dysfunction is not meant to put anyone off taking the vaccine. It is like the Unexpected Gall Bladder report last week.
Report to RxISK
It would be great to hear from anyone who is on Reddit or other media where these cases appear and from anyone who has any sexual changes – for good or bad – following the vaccines or other treatment for Covid.
We can guarantee a much greater concern for your privacy than Pfizer seem to have. Any comments on this post that are sent in will be anonymized. There are all sorts of things it would be good to know more about – whether vaccine induced Mondor Syndrome clears up quickly and whether there are states that are more like those reported on Reddit.
