Experts have long argued that COVID-19 vaccines do not affect female and male fertility. This is confirmed by the latest research conducted in the USA.
One of the legends about
Vaccination against COVID-19 It is its supposed effect on fertility. Since the vaccines were approved for use, there have been voices about their adverse effects on fertility. However, theories linking vaccines to fertility are unscientific. According to a study published in the American Journal, vaccination does not affect fertility in both women and men. It causes SARS-CoV-2 infection in men
Short term decrease in fertility.
Researchers from Boston University School of Public Health in Boston analyzed data collected among 2,126 women (from the United States or Canada) and their partners. The couples participated in a study called the Pregnancy Study Online (PRESTO). Women trying to get pregnant are recruited, and their health is monitored for up to six months after the baby is born. Among other things, socio-demographic, lifestyle and health information is collected on a regular basis.
Researchers: There is no relationship between vaccination and fertility
Studies have examined whether vaccination against COVID-19 (the Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson and Johnson vaccines) might have an effect on the likelihood of getting pregnant during your period. Pregnancy rates were found in women who received at least one dose of the vaccine however, were nearly identical to those of unvaccinated women. Similar results were obtained between partners. Additional analyzes that took into account other factors (such as the number of doses taken, the manufacturer of the vaccine, occupation, or place of residence) did not show any relationship between
Immunization and Fertility.
Corona virus infection reduces male fertility
In men, fertility is affected by COVID-19 itself, not the vaccine. Researchers note that SARRS-CoV-2 infection may temporarily reduce male fertility. Men who tested positive for coronavirus less than 60 days after their cycle had reduced fertility compared to men who had previously been infected with SARS-CoV-2. The authors stress that these findings confirm the findings of previous studies that have linked COVID-19 with decreased sperm quality and other fertility disorders. In their opinion, this can be avoided by vaccination.
Many people of childbearing age cite concerns about fertility as a reason not to get vaccinated. Our study shows for the first time that vaccination against COVID-19 for either partner has no effect on the fertility of couples trying to conceive through sexual intercourse, commented lead author Dr. Amelia Weslink. She added that couples’ pregnancy time is very similar regardless of whether a person has had the vaccine or not.
