Research Urged into Link between COVID Vaccines and Menstrual Changes
According to latest editorial published by the British Medical Journal (BMJ) the relation between the changes of the menstrual cycle and vaccination for COVID-19 is plausible.
Victoria Male, a specialist in reproduction at Imperial College London UK, reported in the publishing house that periods or uncertain vaginal bleeding are not mentioned as the general side effects of COVID-19 vaccination.
By September 2, more than 30,000 such reporting had been submitted to the UK Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).
However, the expert observed that the following cycle has returned to normal and there is no evidence that COVID-19 vaccination has adverse effects on fertility.
The UK’s Medicines and Health Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) listed common side effects of covid-19 such as the sore arm, fatigue, fever, and myalgia. There is no mention of changes in periods or unexpected vaginal bleeding, but people who have seen such events soon after vaccination are increasingly addressed by primary care clinicians as well as those who are associated with the reproductive health.
Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) Stand on the Research
It is stated by the MHRA that yellow card assessments don’t support a link between menstrual change and covid-19 vaccine, as the number of reports is low in both vaccination numbers and menstrual disorder prevalence in general. But it makes it difficult to reach firm conclusions about how yellow card data are collected.
Better methods to compare menstrual variation rates in vaccinated versus unvaccinated populations are required on priority and $1.67m (€1.2M; €1.4m) have been made available for this major research by the US National Institutes of Health.
We need to wait and watch how this study helps in further research on the linkage of COVID-19 vaccination and menstrual changes.
