EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — The effects of Ivermectin therapy on human males can have an effect on men’s reproductive health.

Researchers at three universities in Nigeria studied 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, 85 percent of men who take Ivermectin become sterilized.

Ivermectin is often used as an anthelmintic to combat parasites in animals and some people have been using it to fight COVID-19 despite health experts’ recommendations against it.

The study conducted by researchers in Nigeria screened 385 patients with river blindness to investigate the effects of Ivermectin on sperm function.

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

Dysfunctions include the following:

  • Low sperm count
  • Poor sperm morphology
  • Two heads
  • Tiny heads
  • Double tails
  • Absence of tails
  • Albino sperm cells
  • Azoospermia, or the absence of motile sperm
  • Poor sperm motility
  • “There was a significant drop in the sperm counts of the patients after their treatment with Ivermectin,” the study’s authors concluded.

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not authorized or approved Ivermectin for treating or preventing COVID-19 in humans or animals.

But across the country, people have been self-medicating using animal-grade Ivermectin.

“Never use medications intended for animals on yourself or other people. Animal Ivermectin products are very different from those approved for humans. Use of animal Ivermectin for the prevention or treatment of COVID-19 in humans is dangerous,” reports the FDA.

Dr. Ogechika Alozie, infectious disease expert in El Paso, said to use tried-and-true methods of COVID-19 treatment.

“The reality is this: the things that we know work so far, dexamethasone, actemra, remdesivir in the hospital. Things that work before you go to the hospital like antibody infusions and the vaccines have loads more data than Ivermectin,” he said.

Clinical trials evaluating whether Ivermectin tablets can be used to treat COVID-19 are ongoing, but there is currently no data available to suggest efficacy in fighting the virus.

Bottom line, vaccines are the best way to combat COVID-19.

“I get that people are scared, I get that people are worried,” said Alozie. “But it puzzles me that people would use something with such little data compared to something that has such great data and we know works.”

interesting,, however Ivermectin has been around over thirty years, and there is one test on 385 people? seems like another questionable article.  Biggest thing I have heard is early treatment. However seems every person  I know that has tested positive for covid have been sent home with out a prescription. This includes a friend that his doctor told him your almost over it. Then he ended up in ICU.  There are people that doctors have told them since they are unvaxxed there is nothing they can do, or even doctors refusing to even see unvaxxed.  Take those situations and it is no wonder people are trying things on their own. Ivermectin was originally for humans and is only med someone can get with out prescription.  Then add the medical field has been all over on covid.

first it was approved for emergency use. Second not free, taxpayers pay for it, Govt. say you can't sue so pharmacy companies have zero risk. Govt. and one of the most money hungry groups, what could go wrong?  Did you know people vaxxed are still getting Covid and passing it?  My bro in law was tested positive this week and he got vax.    and lastly I explained why people are taking it. Along with it was developed for human,, then used for animals. In fact the developers got an award for it.    I am not saying good or bad, just stating reasons.  It is called critical thinking not being a sheep.

now the political side. the party which fined people for not having insurance is now mandating a vax. All while the called the previous president a dictator.

Boy do I have a few secrets for you.....

Did you know that vaccines have been 'mandated' in the US for over 50 years?

Did you know... there's more information about the mRNA vaccine than ANY NEW DRUG IN THE LAST 10 years?

Did you know Fox News has its own form of a 'vaccine passport'?

Did you know 8 people at Keller Hospital are on ventilators? Not one with the vaccine.

Did you know that a vaccine is not a guarantee?

I find it hilarious that the very people who call others 'sheep' are taking their directions from the internet and now buying their medication at Rural King.... but hey whatever floats your goat.

yes I am aware of mandated vax,, are you aware that they don't have to be followed?  plus they aren't still in test mode

taking info from the internet isn't different than the media. One still needs to think, compare and decide if source is reliable.  What fox does, isn't my guide. There are many medical people saying the most important thing is EARLY action to covid. However many are told to wait and see what happens.  Example friend had covid, doctor didn't give him any medication. He ended up in ICU.  Ask your self why isn't there more info about prevention?  How many times have you seen info on what supplements to take?  By the way it is suggested to take D3, zinc, C and if you are over 50, take Quercetin.  some also suggest Magnesium.  Some doctors say there is cure if taken in the first 3-4 days. If CDC recognized that then they can't mandate.  One might question what is really Govt. end game?  News flash  control and money is part of that answer.

nice meme, to bad it is propaganda.  leaves the body in 72 hours? that is first time I have heard that one.  still why isn't CDC, fed govt. or someone in power taking about prevention?   besides social distance and mask it has been zip. doctor gave me list of supplements long ago.  there are meds for covid however as I have said several emergency rooms, doctors are sending people home with nothing. several pharmacies won't give out some meds.  Pfizer revenue from vax is in the billions. it isn't about helping people it is about money.  the Vaxxed are still getting and passing virus.  the virus is mutating, and vax doesn't help against them.   we have another lock down coming. 

there again,,, you are reading/listening to media to much.  you don't even have your own thoughts.  several elected republicans including Trump have said get the vax.  It is individuals that don't trust government, that has caught them lying.  What you miss is Trump became popular because the talked to the conservatives.  Many elected republicans are part of the swamp. 

Ask yourself why so many in the medical field won't take the vax.  medical admin push the vax for money.  they don't care and will sell us out.   

have you done any research on the vax? listened to any of the medical/science against it?   I have  a nurse, a nurse educator and a nurse practioninare  in my group, none have taken it.

Well, the majority of anti-vaxxers are Conservatives. You can spread the jam any way you wish, the toast is still toast. And I merely agreed with you. I don't think any of you science deniers should take the vaccine. I don't think any of you should be allowed in a hospital, either, but I do think you're completely entitled to your own opinion and consequences. That's totally on  you.

yep you believe DC and democrats that have been caught.   Many doctors have spoken up against the vax.  Many have said Ivermectin and other medicine will cure covid.   you chose to listen to the corrupt and I choose to listen to those not bought.  we aren't deniers, just realize media lies, and believe different scientist.

maybe you should use different names, other than those used by fake news media

Who do you think makes Ivermectin?

You're the only person I've seen making any claims as to 'curing covid'. Perhaps you should contact the world's leading virologist and tell him about your 'different scientists' and the real cure for Covid.
I wonder who paid for the Ivermectin research? You know.. that won that prize... Somebody paid for all that research and it seems like it was somebody famous... somebody Conservatives hated... Hummmmm. Something about population control... and micro chips.

you really are a sheep.  you think they don't already know?  so med that won prize or vax that hasn't gone thru all the testing?  media said approved,, however didn't say only approved for emergency use.  again media was caught.  Actually I pray you are correct. I have many family and friends that have taken the vax and rather go down myself than them.   finally anyone with sense knows DC, media have lied to us. I don't trust them and understand it is about money and power.

Blindly following whatever information you find on the internet. Blindly following your own confirmed bias. Blindly following other Conservatives who have no idea what they're doing.... and  buying meds for farm animals... and I'm the sheep? hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

You're a special kind of ignorant... willfully ignorant. Enjoy your life. It's gonna be tough.

Why is it that liberals have such a hard time believing in any medicine other than a vaccine?  People take Tylenol for headaches, Nyquil for colds, Sudafed for sinus, antibiotics for infections, antacids for heartburn, so why do they not have sense enough to think that there is something that will help covid-19?  It isn't an automatic death sentence.  There are treatments that are very successful.  Why wouldn't there be?  Try actual science instead of fear-mongering, doom and gloom mindsets and insulting everyone who doesn't feel the same way that you do.

And... quoting all the science while denying the science. Why would you search for 'something other than a vaccine' when the vaccine was invented for the virus?

Please... since you're ok with Nyquil, sudafed, tylenol.... do you know what's in each and every one of those drugs? Do you know what was in any of the vaccines you took for the last 20 years? Why be so resistant to the most researched drug in the last 20 years? From my personal pharmacist.... 'we know more about this vaccine than any blood pressure drug from the last 20 years'... yet, anti-vaxxers are persistent in their denying science.

your wrongly calling things different names is a joke.   horse wormer was originally made for humans.  not believing the person delivering the message is not disbelieving science. all the items you asked about are fda approved and been around for a long time.  the vax is not approved and hasn't been around for a long time.

Now, what a wonderful attempt at deflection, but your big 'Ivermectin cures Covid' Dr. has Covid. That's the point.

Ivermectin... 0

         Covid... 1
