Could hepatitis A affect sex drive and cause watery semen?

Hi, I've come out of hospital after being diagnosed with Hepatitis A and seem to have developed a problem with sperm production. Ejaculation only produces a few watery drops and there has also be a significant drop in my sex drive. Could this be a side effect of Hep A?

Hello,

There is no documented evidence that supports such idea. However, in advanced liver disease yes it is possible to have low sperms and infertility but not in a case like yours.

Hepatitis A can be spread via semen and sex so you have to take care of that problem too. Take necessary precautions. Eat healthy, drink boiled clean water and do regular exercise.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Sameen Bin Naeem, General & Family Physician
