EL PASO — Men’s reproductive health may be impacted as a result of Ivermectin therapy on human males, according to a News Channel 8 report. 

This was found by researchers at three universities in Nigeria examining the effects of ivermectin, which is used to treat river blindness and other medical conditions in humans, on men’s sperm counts. According to their study, ivermectin causes sterilisation in 85% of men.

Ivermectin is an anti-parasitic veterinary drug. Despite health experts’ recommendations against it, some people have been using it to fight Covid-19.

The study screened 385 patients with river blindness to investigate the effects of ivermectin on sperm function.

The researchers discovered that 85% of all male patients treated with ivermectin in the recent past who went for routine tests were found to have developed various forms and degrees of sperm dysfunction.
