A man suffered erectile dysfunction after getting the Covid-19 mRNA vaccine. The unidentified man's wife reported he suffered the adverse event shortly after receiving the mRNA vaccine.

"My man hasn't been able to have an erection since he took the vaccine. At first I was teasing him but when I saw how distressed it made him I realized that its [sic] serious. We are going for professional consultation today. Hoping for a positive outcome."

According to goodrx.com, Covid-19 has been linked to erectile dysfunction (ED) in research studies. However, there isn't enough research to prove whether Covid-19 vaccines can cause ED.

"COVID-19 can cause swelling and inflammation in the penis. It can also damage blood vessels and lower or prevent blood from reaching tissues and organs. If blood can’t reach your penis, having an erection will be more difficult."

A small study cited by goodrx.com reports that men infected with the coronavirus had lower testosterone levels. Low testosterone levels can lead to ED.

Other risk factors for ED include obesity, age, high blood pressure, respiratory illnesses, mental illness, and diabetes.

The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database doesn't show any reports of ED.

The data may not be available because some men are embarrassed to report their inability to get it up after taking the vaccines.

Women who received the Pfizer mRNA vaccine are reporting an unexpected side effect that may boost mammogram appointments in America.

The women claim the Pfizer injections increased their breast size and they have dubbed the side effect the "Pfizer boob job."

According to Australian Department of Health, increased breast size and inflamed lymph nodes are a less common side effect of the vaccinations.

Doctors in the U.S. have reported an increase in newly vaccinated women making mammogram appointments due to swollen breasts.

Dr. Laura Esserman, director of University of California San Francisco’s Breast Care Center, said women were confusing swollen lymph nodes after the vaccine for signs of cancer.

Dr. Esserman said "hundreds of thousands of women" will be affected by the rare side effect.

"I'm sure hundreds of thousands of women will be affected by this for sure," Dr. Esserman told ABC7 Chicago.

The video features a 12-year-old girl who requires a feeding tube and is in a wheelchair after participating in the vaccine trials for children.

One woman said, "We listened, so we believed that this vaccine was the right thing to do. So, please, trust us and listen to us when we tell you that we are continuing to suffer physically."

Another woman said, "I'm speaking on behalf of my 17 year old daughter. Pfizer, New York, we need help. We need to be heard."

A third woman who didn't want her face to be shown said, "I am afraid to be shown due to the negative consequences some of my fellow sufferers have faced for speaking out. But I need help and we desperately need the medical community to hear us."

All of the vaccine recipients signed waivers acknowledging the potential side effects, including death.

Vaccine recipients can't sue pharmaceutical companies for damages for their pain and suffering.

However, none of them believed the vaccines would adversely affect them and cause anguish and pain.

Insurance doesn't cover their treatment because the vaccines are experimental and the recipients accepted the potential risks.

After she was fully vaccinated in April, Faines tweeted:

"I had dinner with a friend for the first time in a year Sunday. Today I visited my opinionated octogenarian seamstress who I haven’t seen since last March. The joy! Actually getting ready to wear clothes OUT again Weary face. Things are NOT normal—but a bit closer."

Faines graduated from Yale University and was a competitive salsa dancer. She taught ballet to preteens and she was the founder of her brand Women Love Power, a digital learning company that helped women develop their sense of self separate from a man.

Black Twitter flooded her timeline with condolences.

One user wrote:

"Ayesha K Faines was a Black woman who organized complex information so anyone could understand.

"She had a great dharma as a teacher & she fulfilled her purpose. She followed her own rules & listened to her internal calling. The loss of this woman will be felt for generations."

Another person wrote:

"Never met Ayesha K. Faines a day in my life but I’ve been following her on twitter for years.

"I always loved and appreciated her wisdom on the Grapevine panels. Such a powerful, beautiful and brilliant woman. Prayers for her family & loved ones. R.I.P"

The Center for Disease Control in Atlanta called an emergency meeting after hundreds of teenage boys who received Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines developed heart inflammation.

A total of 226 cases of myocarditis and pericarditis have been reported among teenage boys who received Covid-19 vaccines.

Of the total cases, three teenagers are in intensive care units, 15 are hospitalized in cardiac ICU, 41 have cardiac symptoms and the rest have recovered fully.

The CDC said Thursday the number of cases are higher than expected.

Heart inflammation is rare among healthy teenagers and young adults.

Children and teenagers have extremely low rates of Covid-19 and are not known to transmit the virus to adults.

The CDC continues to urge children ages 12 and older to get vaccinated.

More than 130 million Americans have received both their first and second doses of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. 60% of Americans are unvaccinated.

Governors in America have offered incentives including $1 million lotteries, cars, guns, and concert tickets to people who get the vaccines.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is investigating cases of heart inflammation in children and teenagers who got the Covid-19 mRNA vaccine.

Myocarditis is inflammation of the heart muscles, which affects the heart's electrical system that tells the heart to beat regularly.

Myocarditis is usually caused by a virus, such as Covid-19. The symptoms include irregular heart beat, chest pain, fatigue (extreme tiredness), fluid retention (swelling in legs), and shortness of breath.

The CDC says doctors have not established a link between the mRNA vaccines and reports of myocarditis in children who have received the injections.

The CDC urged people to still get vaccinated despite the troubling reports.

Doctors say the condition is "mild" and often goes away on its own.

"Reported cases appear to be mild and often go away without requiring treatment," said CDC spokesman Benjamin Haynes. He said that the reports are "rare given the number of vaccine doses administered."

As of Monday, nearly half of the U.S. population received at least one dose of the mRNA vaccine.

Female-to-male trans (FtM) individuals report irregular periods after receiving the Covid-19 mRNA vaccine.

FtM trans whose menstrual periods stopped while on the male hormone testosterone now complain that they are menstruating again.

Biological women in the LGBT and heterosexual communities report irregular menstruation such as heavy bleeding after taking Covid-19 mRNA vaccines.

A few FtM trans took to social media to vent their frustration.

One FtM trans who hasn't had a period in 5 years started menstruating spontaneously within days of taking the Moderna injection.

A heterosexual woman wrote that her 24-year-old biological sister, who self-identifies as a male, began bleeding heavily after taking the vaccine.

"He was very unprepared, and in shock at Aunt Mary's return," she wrote in a post on Reddit.com. "Aunt Mary" is slang for menstruation.

She added: "I'm worried it may affect my cycle if I get it? I'm very regular; you could set a clock to my cycle."

Researchers have launched a study to determine whether Covid-19 mRNA vaccines cause abnormal periods such as heavy bleeding.

200 million adults and children in America have been vaccinated -- more than half of the U.S. population.

But the pace of vaccinations has begun to slow, because people who don't want the vaccine are not seeking appointments.

The White House and the CDC are concerned the U.S. might not reach herd immunity, as those who are fully vaccinated begin to fall ill from Covid-19.

In many states, unused vaccines are beginning to pile up, leaving thousands of vaccines to spoil.

While New Hampshire has given at least one shot to 59 percent of its citizens, states such as Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and Florida are at or below 30 percent vaccinated.

"There are states where they feel they have hit the wall," said Michael Fraser, the executive director of the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials. "The folks that wanted [vaccines] have found it. The folks that don't want it are not bothering to find it."

Two researchers have launched a study to determine whether Covid-19 mRNA vaccines cause abnormal periods such as heavy bleeding.

Dr. Kathryn Clancy and Dr. Katherine Lee say they launched the study when they both experienced heavy menstrual bleeding after taking the vaccines.

When Clancy and Lee asked their Twitter followers to describe their abnormal menstrual cycles after taking the vaccines, hundreds of women replied.

Clancy and Lee are now compiling data from a questionnaire asking women to describe their abnormal periods. As of Monday, more than 25,000 women have completed the questionnaire, Dailymail.com reported.

In a series of tweets in February, Clancy discussed her heavy menstrual bleeding after taking the first shot of Moderna.

"I'm curious whether other menstruators [sic] have noticed changes too?" she wrote.

"I'm a week and a half out from dose 1 of Moderna, got my period maybe a day or so early, and am gushing like I'm in my 20s again. I'm on day 3 of my period and am still swapping out extra long overnight pads a few times a day. Typical for me at this time is maybe one or two regular pads."

On April 7, Clancy tweeted out a link to a survey in which women could document their menstrual irregularities.

Thrombocytopenia, or low blood platelets, was among the adverse effects reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) system.

Low blood platelets causes abnormal bleeding, weakness and fatigue.

Experts say Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson did not report any menstrual irregularities during their relatively short clinical trials.

They say it's too early to suggest a link between heavy cycles and vaccinations until a larger study is conducted.

The Food & Drug Administration approved the mRNA vaccines on an emergency basis.

The FDA approval allowed pharmaceutical companies to forego longterm studies of their vaccines.

The benefits of taking the Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine outweighs the risk of blood clots or contracting Covid, according to the European Medicines Agency.

The EMA said there was a "possible link" between blood clots and the vaccine. But the benefits of the vaccine outweighs the risk of hospitalization and death.

The CDC and FDA paused distribution of the J&J single dosage vaccine on April 14 after one woman died from blood clots in the brain. Six other women were diagnosed with blood clots in the brain.

All six women, ages 18 to 48, were vaccinated within two weeks of their diagnoses.

The agency also found a small link between clots and AsreaZeneca's mRNA vaccine. The EMA recommended blood clots be listed as a "rare" side effect of AstraZeneca's mRNA vaccines.

"The reported combination of blood clots and low blood platelets is very rare, and the overall benefits of COVID-19 Vaccine ... in preventing COVID-19 outweigh the risks of side effects," the EMA said in a statement Tuesday.

Johnson & Johnson will resume shipments of its single dose vaccine to all states in the US this week.

In February, Johnson & Johnson CEO Alex Gorksy said an annual J&J vaccine would be needed. He added that a "booster" shot will be needed within 12 months of the first injection.

On Wednesday, Moderna revealed that it is also testing a third booster shot to be available by fall, CNBC reported.

So far, at least 54% of the population received one Covid-19 injection.

Legendary boxer "Marvelous" Marvin Hagler passed away after suffering side effects of the mRNA vaccine he received days before. He was 66.

Hagler's wife, Kay, announced his death on Saturday.

Former boxing champion Thomas "Hitman" Hearns tweeted on Saturday that Hagler was in a hospital intensive care unit after suffering side effects to the vaccine.

"A real true warrior Pray for the king and his family.. he's in ICU fighting the after effects of the vaccine! He'll be just fine but we could use the positive energy and Prayer for his Full Recovery!"

Boxing fans were shocked at the news. One fan tweeted:

"Im proper gutted!! the Great Marvin Hagler dies after taking the vaccine! Please do your own research before making a decision on putting something in your body that has not been tested properly & we r being used as the guinea pigs & not told the #Truth about #vaccine."

Hagler was the undisputed middleweight champion of the world from 1980 until 1987. He recorded 52 knockouts during his stellar career.

Among his knockouts was a memorable brawl with Hearns in April 1985 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, which Hagler won by third-round knockout (watch the first round below).
