For several months, after receiving the corona vaccine, women complain of changes in their menstrual cycle. After much uncertainty, a new study finds that the vaccine is actually causing changes in this process.
Thanks to global cooperation and advances in medical science, researchers have been able to produce a number of coronavirus vaccines in record time. However, as with any proven and tried treatment, this life-saving vaccine does cause some side effects.
These side effects made a good number of women wonder if changes in the menstrual cycle could be linked to the corona vaccine, and even those fears led some of them to avoid receiving the vaccine.

Women documenting their menstrual cycles in the app gave their consent to share their data for use in the study, and the sample group ultimately included 3,959 women – 2,403 vaccinated and 1,556 unvaccinated.
Then they examined six menstrual cycles for the two groups, and reviewed three consecutive cycles before and after vaccination for the vaccinated group and six consecutive cycles for the non-vaccinated.
Using this information, the researchers were able to determine if and how menstrual duration changed in the vaccinated group, and whether these changes were significant compared to the unvaccinated women.
In general, the results showed that receiving the corona vaccine was associated with a longer menstrual cycle by less than a day compared to the cycles of participants before vaccination.
No significant changes were detected in the unvaccinated group compared to their baseline data. While the vaccinated group experienced a slight increase in the total length of the menstrual cycle, it was not associated with an increase in the number of bleeding days, which means that actual menstruation remained the same.
Although a change was observed during menstruation, lead researcher Dr. Alison Edelman of Oregon Health & Science University said the differences observed were within the normal range of variation.
