New research has found that the COVID-19 vaccines can cause minor changes to a woman’s menstrual cycle, contradicting previous claims about the controversial jabs.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) currently maintains that there is “no evidence that any vaccines, including COVID-19 vaccines, cause fertility problems,” and recommends that pregnant women be injected with the coronavirus vaccine.
Johns Hopkins Medicine echoes similar sentiments. “No, getting the COVID-19 vaccine will not affect your fertility,” they claim.
NPR reported in August: “Some people have reported getting a lighter or heavier period after getting a COVID-19 vaccine. Cause for concern? Doctors say no.”
Despite this, a new study published by Obstetrics & Gynecology, a peer reviewed journal commonly referred to as the Green Journal, has revealed that the COVID-19 vaccines may alter women’s menstrual cycles to a small degree.
According to the study, “In adjusted models, 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).”
“[The study] validates that there is something real here,” said Dr. Hugh Taylor, the chair of the department of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive sciences at Yale School of Medicine.
The Yale doctor still insists that a “cycle or two where periods are thrown off may be annoying, but it’s not going to be harmful in a medical way.”
The researchers justified the study by noting that “a possible association between coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) vaccination and abnormal menstrual cycles may lead to vaccine hesitancy.”
According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), “fertility depends on the menstrual (ovarian) cycle, and in each cycle there is a ‘fertile window’ during which women can conceive.”
This comes as mainstream media outlets, along with the heads of Modena and Pfizer, raise the prospect of a fourth COVID-19 vaccine injection, National File previously reported.
Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel on Thursday said that triple vaccinated people may need yet another “booster” injection due to the supposedly “effective” vaccines’ decline in “efficacy.”
Bancel said that the third injection may wear off “over the course of several months, similar to what happened with the first two doses,” prompting a fourth injection after winter subsides, according to a report by CNBC.
