The Covid-19 Vaccine and your Menstrual Cycle

The Covid-19 Vaccine and your Menstrual Cycle

The media is buzzing about the covid-19 vaccines affecting menstrual cycle changes, which can sound super scary. We know that these reports may seem concerning, so we’ve done the research to break down the current evidence so you don’t have to.

Key Points

  • More than 30,000 reports of cycle changes have occurred after the various covid-19 vaccines, although more investigations on the link needs to be done before cycle changes are listed as an official side effect.
  • Most people return to normal menstruation after one or a few cycles.
  • There is no evidence that the vaccines affect fertility.
  • The link between cycle changes and the vaccines are only correlated, meaning that although they may be linked, it is unknown if the vaccine is the cause of the changes.
  • Another theory behind the cause of the cycle changes is stress! Stress is known to cause cycle changes, and stress levels have been elevated throughout the pandemic.
  • More research needs to be done to investigate the link between covid-19 vaccines and cycle changes.

There does not seem to be cause of concern for taking the vaccine from a standpoint of menstrual cycle changes, as any changes that do occur are temporary, do not affect fertility, and it is unknown how the two are related at this time.

Lowering stress may be an effective way to help keep your cycle regular during the pandemic.
