US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — Chinese scientists from the Department of Physiology, Jining Medical University conducted a new study, within the framework of which it became clear that coronavirus could affect the ability to conceive a child.
It turned out that coronavirus infection can negatively affect the reproductive system of women. So, according to scientists, the pathogen can make its way into the organs of the genitourinary system, since it is in them that a large amount of ACE2 protein is present. Recall that thanks to him, the virus is able to penetrate the body. This protein, by the way, in addition to the lungs, is also found in the liver, kidneys, as well as the central nervous system.
Scientists said that a new type of coronavirus can infect the ovaries, uterus, as well as the vagina and placenta by “ubiquitous expression of ACE2.” This, in turn, can provoke infertility. In addition, this can potentially lead to menstruation, respiratory distress syndrome in pregnant women and other deviations.
