NIH has announced that they ruled a $1.67M study to examine precisely how the vaccine against the COVID-19 affects the menstrual cycle or on the reproductive health at all.
For more than six months, we have had coronavirus shots available at the market for all adults, including Moderna, Pfizer, and J&J.

However, due to the vaccine, many women reported cycle irregularities, and the reports first appeared in April.
Shana Clauson, 45, shared her experience with the coronavirus jab. She said that her period came earlier and was heavier than average. Shana shared her experience publicly on social media to see if someone else was experiencing the same thing.
” Is this not being discussed, or is it even being looked at or researched because it’s a ‘woman’s issue?’ ” she told the Washington Post.
It seems that Clauson’s words reached NIH. On August 30, they announced that NIH ruled an examination for the influence of the vaccine on reproductive health among ½ million participants, teens, transgender, and nonbinary people.
Researchers at Boston University, Harvard Medical School, Johns Hopkins University, Michigan State University, Oregon Health and Science Universities will contribute to the study. NIH’s NICHS and the Office of Research on Women’s Health commissioned these Universities.
The study will see observe unvaccinated participants and the changes happening after each dose. Some groups will exclude individuals on birth control/ gender-affirming hormones, which are affecting periods.
“Our goal is to provide menstruating people with information, mainly as to what to expect, because I think that was the biggest issue: Nobody expected it to affect the menstrual system because the information wasn’t being collected in the early vaccine studies,” said NICHD Director Diana Bianchi.
The NIH said that the menstrual cycle could change depending on several lie’s circumstances during a pandemic. Stress influences it a lot, and it could cause huge changes in the menstrual cycle.
However, the immune and reproductive systems are connected, and the notion that the immune-boosting vaccine can cause some changes is plausible.
The vaccine won’t cause infertility, and the CDC advises even pregnant women to take it.
Bianchi explained that the menstrual cycle changes aren’t life-threatening issues.
“We were worried this was contributing to vaccine hesitancy in reproductive-age women,” said Bianchi.
