Medical reports: Corona vaccines may affect your menstrual cycle

If you're one of the women who noticed some changes to their menstrual cycle after receiving the coronavirus vaccine, you're not alone. This effect of vaccines may be more common than you think, according to new medical reports, so what's going on?

Medical reports: Corona vaccines may affect your menstrual cycle

According to new medical reports recently published in the British newspaper The Sunday Times, coronavirus vaccines may indeed have a certain effect on the menstrual cycle of vaccinated women.

These reports come after changes to the menstrual cycle were recorded for nearly 4,000 women who had previously received the coronavirus vaccine in the UK. The women whose menstrual cycle changes were reported ranged in age from 30-49 years, and each had previously received one of the following types of vaccines: Pfizer, Moderna, and AstraZeneca.

These changes often included things like:

  • Your period is later than usual.
  • Increased menstruation.

It should be noted that these reports are not the first of their kind to indicate a relationship between vaccinations and changes in the menstrual cycle; In the United States of America, for example, various cases of women whose menstrual cycle had changes similar to those mentioned in the aforementioned reports were also recorded.

Do you have to worry?

Not necessarily, as it was noted that the changes that were recorded were:

  • Temporary changes in most cases, after which the menstrual cycle returns to normal for most within a maximum period of 3-4 months.
  • Uncommon cases, their incidence rates compared to the total number of women who received corona vaccines around the world are small.
  • Changes that do not require medication to get rid of, and often do not affect a woman's fertility.

Some doctors believe that the link between vaccinations and the mentioned menstrual cycle changes may be due to one of two things, namely:

  • Tension and general physical stress in the body, which may arise as a result of the immune system's reaction to the vaccine.
  • The stress and psychological pressure that a woman may feel when thinking about the vaccine that she will soon receive or that she has already received, stress, of course, may negatively affect the menstrual cycle.

Until now, there is no compelling scientific evidence that vaccines may affect fertility, and what is being circulated about the relationship of vaccines to the menstrual cycle are medical reports and notes that are still under study, and researchers have not yet come up with results indicating a confirmed relationship between them. Therefore, there is no need for women to avoid receiving available vaccines for the Coronavirus.
