The 9 embarrassing side effects of Covid

COVID usually causes the same set of symptoms – cough, runny nose or headache are just some of the ones you want to know.

In a small number of people, more bizarre symptoms may appear, such as belching or pink eye.

Usually the symptoms disappear by themselves as the body fights infection.

But as we know, the virus has left millions with “long Covid”, causing a huge range of side effects that will not shake.

Some of these can beat a person’s self-esteem, such as a change in their penis size or problems with bladder control.

It is important to see a doctor if you are worried about any symptoms.

They may discover that Covid is not the cause and provide you with treatment for an underlying problem.

Here we take a look at some of the more embarrassing problems that Covid can cause:


The burp “usually happens up to 30 times a day”, both audibly and silently, according to experts.

Gays tens to happen after eating, especially foods like broccoli, apples, pears and break, or drink something effervescent.

Some people may experience more belching while sick with Covid.

Model Olivia Molly Rogers, a former Miss Universe contestant from Australia, said she “could not stop barking” while infected in January.

In some people, it may last for several weeks as part of long-lasting Covid, research has shown.

A study highlighted by researchers in the medical journal Lancet showed that 44 percent of hospital patients from China had stomach-related problems three months after their discharge.

Of the 117 patients examined, one in ten had more burps than before.


Covid may make toilet trips more frequent, as research has shown that diarrhea can be a symptom of the disease.

The ZOE Covid Symptom Study revealed that the likelihood of getting Covid diarrhea increases with age.

It affects 10 percent of children, but 30 percent of adults over the age of 35, data from millions of app users have shown.

The research team says diarrhea is an early sign of Covid starting on the first day of infection and increasing in intensity during the first week.

The study of ongoing symptoms in China, mentioned above, showed that 15 percent of hospital patients suffered diarrhea during recovery.

Sex problems

Problems in the bedroom have been reported by people months after they had the virus.

A study by King’s College University of 3,400 people who had previously confirmed or suspected Covid shed light on the seriousness of the problem.

It found that 14.6 percent of men and eight percent of women had some sort of “sexual dysfunction” as part of long-term Covid, which may have been a problem for several months.

Research has suggested that Covid disease can cause erectile dysfunction (ED) in men.

Urologists in Miami found coronavirus particles in the penises of two men who had ED after Covid.

When the virus enters the endothelial cells of the blood vessels found in the penis, it can prevent proper blood flow.

Smaller penis

Experts have said that a shrinking penis is most likely a result of erectile dysfunction that occurs due to viral infection.

A smaller penis was reported by 3.2 percent of men in the King’s College survey.

An anonymous man who has experienced erectile dysfunction and a reduced penis size as a result of Covid called the podcast “How to Do It” and said it had ruined his confidence.

Ashley Winter MD, a urologist in Portland, USA, and affiliated with Kaiser Permanente, assured men that there are treatments that could help.


Night sweats have been reported by some experts as a common feature of the Omicron variant during infection.

Dr. Amir Khan spoke to ITV’s Lorraine and said patients experienced “the kind of driving night sweats where you might have to get up and change clothes”.

It can leave your sheets and nightwear damp or even soaked, even if the room you are sleeping in is cool.

This can be an embarrassment for those who share a bed with a partner – even if it’s probably only you who’s aware of it.

Mood swings

If you have had Covid in the past and have felt a little “off”, you may be able to blame the virus.

The King’s College study found a number of symptoms marked by long-term Covid patients that were related to a change in mood.

A quarter of people said they had more anger since their infection, while 7.4 percent reported aggression.

More than half of the respondents said they had more irritability.

It is difficult for researchers to distinguish whether these symptoms were a direct result of the virus or general feelings about the pandemic and the stress it has caused.


Your partner will not thank you for this – the snoring may have gotten worse since you recovered from your Covid disease.

The King’s College study cited sleep apnea as affecting 7.1 percent of long-term Covid sufferers.

The main symptom of the condition is snoring, which is a result of the airways becoming restricted throughout the night.

Sleep apnea can actually be quite a serious condition because it can make a person feel tired during the day. It has been linked to a wide range of diseases, such as heart disease and high blood pressure.

Red or pink eyes

Irritated eyes may occur in some people with Covid infection.

The World Health Organization lists it as a less common symptom of the virus.

An early study, published in BMJ Open Ophthalmology, showed that of 83 Covid patients, 17 percent had itchy eyes, while 16 percent had sore eyes.

It should be done as you recover.

However, according to King’s College study by Long Covid, about 15 percent of people reported “pink eye” (conjunctivitis), while the same figure had bloodshot eyes.


The last thing you want after Covid infection is incontinence, which is when you have a harder time holding your bladder or intestines.

Researchers at the University Beaumont School of Medicine, Michigan, theorized that inflammation caused by Covid may put more pressure on the bladder.

They found that 46 of 65 discharged hospital patients – who were mostly in their 60s – had new or worsening symptoms related to their bladder, including the need to walk more at night.

Meanwhile, the King’s College study found that 14.1 percent of people had “bladder control problems” as a symptom of long-term Covid.

However, urinary incontinence and similar problems are very common and are sometimes the result of stress, obesity or older age.

These can all be the true reasons why some people have developed it since the pandemic, as opposed to the virus itself.
