How Does The COVID-19 Vaccine Impact Your Period?

Though the reported side effects are temporary, such accounts have the potential to impact global vaccination rates if women decide against vaccination due to fears regarding fertility and pregnancy. But health experts stress that there is no conclusive evidence indicating that the COVID-19 vaccine poses a risk to women’s reproductive health. As per CNN, vice president of the UK’s Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists Dr. Jo Mountfield encouraged vaccination among women stating, “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. It is important to get vaccinated as the best protection against coronavirus. This is especially important if you are planning a pregnancy, as we know unvaccinated pregnant women are more at risk of becoming seriously ill from COVID-19.” Still, health officials do encourage further research on the subject to combat vaccine hesitancy and allow women intending to receive the vaccine to plan for this potential side effect.
