BOISE, Idaho – In cities across the country, some women have reported changes in their menstrual cycles after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. However, a doctor from Idaho has not heard of cases of this in the state of precious stones.
As the spread of the COVID-19 vaccine continues in Idaho, news of many different side effects has spread among residents, both in person and online. Most of the side effects that people experience after receiving the vaccine are minor, including pain, headache and fever.
Recently, some women in different cities have reported a change in their menstrual cycle after receiving the vaccine.
Treasure Valley medical experts have not heard of this happening to women in the area. Dr. Stephen Nemerson, St. Alphonse̵
“Not surprisingly, when a vaccine is designed to generate an immune response that will then prevent you from receiving COVID, the effect of the vaccine and the immune response would cause a transient or limited change in a woman’s menstrual period.” said Nemerson. “This should then be normalized over a period of weeks or maybe up to a few months, so it wouldn’t be surprising.”
Nemerson wants to emphasize that the COVID-19 vaccine will not harm a woman’s reproductive system and will not affect their ability to have a child.
