Female period changes after Covid-19 vaccines were reported 27,000 times in 9 months

September 23, 2021

The medicines regulatory agency in the UK has received over 27,000 reports of period changes in females after receiving COVID-19 vaccines in the past nine months, however medical experts still urge women who are trying to get pregnant to get vaccinated.

Gynecologist Dr. Jo Mountfield noted that any period changes after COVID-19 vaccines generally revert back to normal after one or two cycles, and that “There is no evidence to suggest that these temporary changes will have any impact on a person’s future fertility or their ability to have children”. 

Another gynecologist, Dr. Jackie Maybin, at the University of Edinburgh, said it was “very difficult to know if these changes are a direct effect of the vaccine itself or are due to wider effects of the pandemic.” And that “In times of stress*the female system is designed to temporarily downregulate to prevent against pregnancy and conserve energy. This brain-level effect may explain some of the changes in menstruation observed during the pandemic, with COVID-19 or with vaccination”. And stated further that “any effects” related to the COVID vaccine are likely to be short lived and to be much less severe than a corona-virus infection. But others say otherwise and that Maybin assumptions are incorrect.
