As it’s time for many of us to get our covid booster shots, you may be concerned about how the covid vaccines can affect your cycle. Got questions? We’ve got answers!
Studies are starting to show that the covid-19 vaccines can temporarily impact your menstrual cycle. So if you’re getting your shot, don’t worry if your next cycle is off, delayed, or heavier than normal! Most people report that their cycle returns to normal after one month, but it may take a few cycles to get back to normal.
If the vaccine may disrupt your period, can it impact your fertility? Studies are clear: the covid-19 vaccines do not affect fertility whatsoever.
Menstrual cycles are prone to natural fluctuations as well, which can be caused by stress, traveling, and poor sleep. Addressing the foundations of health (sleep, stress, nutrition, and movement) and living a balanced life can help keep your cycle regular/get back on track!
6 lifestyle tips to regulate your cycle:
Getting adequate sleep (aim for 8 hours)
Moving your body every day for at least 20 minutes
Drinking 1.5-2L of filtered water per day
Eating whole, nutritionally-dense foods
Practicing mindfulness and/or deep breathing techniques
