Protecting yourself is necessary, especially when you are planning to expand your family or if you or the couple are in childbearing years or age, because it may affect the new life. And moreover, your ability to get pregnant may also be affected by not taking care of some crucial things, including taking vaccinations during the pandemic.
So, it gets harder to decide, especially during the time of pandemic and vaccine related rumors. Because most of the time, people don’t rely on the new medicines or vaccines coming quickly to the market with very little clinical trials or data. It needs lots of time, research, and clinical trials before launching any medication or vaccine.
It is an important issue because nobody wants to harm themselves because that may affect their future baby or their fertility as well.
Clinical evidence regarding the myth of COVID-19 vaccination and fertility
For the convenience of the couple who are feeling anxious about the impact of vaccination on their fertility, we are presenting some real evidence:
- According to recent studies, the COVID-19 vaccine does not cause any harm to any partner in terms of fertility. There is no link found between vaccination and the probability of getting pregnant. It remains as such in both partners as before after vaccination.
- According to Dr. Amelia Wesselink, after the COVID-19 vaccination, no adverse effects were found on fertility among any partner who was trying to conceive naturally. Fertility rates were also equal to those of unvaccinated females. All the research was done by using different parameters, including infertility history, doses of vaccine, and the brand of vaccine. But men who were infected with coronavirus infection were found to have temporary reduced fertility compared to those who were not infected at all. But all those who got the temporary effect already had some reproductive issues like poor sperm quality and other dysfunctional issues.
- It has already been shown from various clinical studies that women who hadn’t received the vaccine during the peak time of the pandemic had to be admitted to the ICU along with their new born babies.
- It is seen that people who are vaccinated are still getting pregnant naturally, as usual, without seeking any medical help. And those who are already suffering from infertility issues still need help. So, there are linear similarities as usual, and it is a very reassuring thing for the couples.
- Even in recent clinical data from vaccination, there is also no effect found on sperm count, but instead coronavirus infection can cause low sperm count. Also, there is no harm in taking the vaccine after or before fertility treatment.
- There is a severe risk of getting COVID infection in pregnant women, which may increase the rate of premature birth and ICU admissions. Vaccination is therefore strongly advised for pregnant women and couples planning to conceive in the future during the coronavirus pandemic.
- These are unfounded rumors that the coronavirus vaccine may cause infertility or harm the fertile couple in some way, according to the Canadian Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology. All of the evidence above suggests that you should get vaccinated as soon as possible to protect yourself and your future child.
Some facts about COVID-19 Vaccination on the reproductive Health
- It is equally normal to become pregnant after taking the COVID vaccine as before taking it.
- Vaccination doesn’t change the fertility pattern. There is no such proof found in both genders. Only temporary low sperm production happens in the male, which may also happen in coronavirus infection. In fact, an unvaccinated couple may severely get ill due to coronavirus infection and the chances of a higher risk like preterm birth prevail in the unborn child.
- In the United States, no evidence of pregnancy loss was found in pregnant women after vaccination.
- According to the CDC, it is recommended for couples who are trying to conceive in the future. No proof has been found that COVID-19 may harm the fertility of males or females.
- So lots of research work is going on regarding vaccines and their effects, but in recent studies it has been shown that the COVID-19 vaccine is safe for fertility or doesn’t impair fertility in childbearing couples. On the other hand, a COVID infection can have an effect on male fertility for nearly 60 days. This research was done by the NIH on over 2,100 couples.
- As a result, numerous studies show that there is no such evidence that shows any effect on couples’ fertility rates. In fact, people are more likely to get affected by coronavirus infection than the vaccine.
- And also, there is no drawback to trying to conceive after coronavirus infection, but it might take a long time to conceive. Thus, there is also not at all any long-term effect of COVID infection on the fertility of both genders.
COVID-19 vaccine and IVF treatment
According to current studies, vaccines against coronavirus infection do not impact the fertility of males and females who are undergoing assistive reproductive technology or IVF treatment. And so much data is available that reassures the couple about their fertility and vaccination as well.
The study was conducted in New York and was based on specific parameters like early miscarriage, pregnancy, and fertilization. This clinical study didn’t find any variation between vaccinated and unvaccinated couples. Therefore, the rate of pregnancy and the loss ofpregnancy were both similar in all the cases. They closely monitored all the data on the patients who were taking the IVF treatment.
From all such findings on the effect of vaccination on fertility, it is clear that vaccination protects us and doesn’t cause any long-term harm to childbearing couples and their fertility as well.
