While many news outlets, medical authorities, and even the CDC have claimed in the past that the COVID jab won’t adversely affect fertility in women, a recent study released by peer reviewed journal known as the Green Journal has found that the jab very well may alter women’s menstrual cycles to some degree.
According to the CDC’s guidelines pertaining to the COVID jab, it is noted that the shot “is recommended for people who are trying to get pregnant now or might become pregnant in the future” and that there is “no evidence that any vaccines, including COVID-19 vaccines, cause fertility problems.”
Similarly, a report from John Hopkins Medicine boasted the same sentiments from the CDC, with the report noting “getting the COVID-19 vaccine will not affect your fertility. Women actively trying to conceive may be vaccinated with the current COVID-19 vaccines — there is no reason to delay pregnancy after completing the vaccine series.”
Yet, in a report published on January 5th by the Green Journal, it was revealed that there could be slight changes to women’s menstrual cycles following the jab.
“In adjusted models,” the report said, “the difference in change in cycle length between the vaccinated and unvaccinated cohorts was less than 1 day for both doses (difference in change: first dose 0.64 days, 98.75% CI 0.27–1.01; second dose 0.79 days, 98.75% CI 0.40–1.18).”
Dr. Hugh Taylor, the chair of the department of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive sciences at Yale School of Medicine, said that the study shows “that there is something real here” but also insists that a menstrual “cycle or two where periods are thrown off may be annoying, but it’s not going to be harmful in a medical way.”
But with menstrual cycles being affected by the COVID jab, therein lies the possibility of fertility complications, as the NIH says that “Fertility depends on the menstrual (ovarian) cycle, and in each cycle there is a ‘fertile window’ during which women can conceive.”
This revelation comes at a time where the heads of Modena and Pfizer have opined that yet another series of boosters – jab number four – may be necessary.
