Can anyone reassure me that there will be no consequences on my fertility if I get the COVID vaccine? How are we sure that there won’t be issues 1-5 years down the line? Help - freaking out here since it’s new and hasn’t been tested from that perspective yet.

Speaking as a PhD virologist, there are no first principle reasons why the COVID vaccines would affect fertility any differently than other vaccines (i.e. they don't). Why are people claiming that it could?

l lump the infertility rumors in the same misinformation bucket as the mRNA vaccines will change your DNA rumors (it doesn't).

No one can 100% say there won’t be consequences, just like we can’t say with 100% certainty that contracting COVID has no impact on fertility.

I got comfort around the fact that if there were ever any widespread consequences (such a remote possibility probably), most child-bearing women around the world would be impacted, so I wouldn’t be alone 🤷🏻‍♀️

Yep. If it makes you feel better OP, they just described the results of a recent study completed on pregnant women who had COVID (studied about 1200 women). They had a higher rate of severe symptoms, and higher death rate than the average pregnant woman without COVID. So, I’m willing to take the risk of the vaccine, just knowing that if I got pregnant and had COVID, it could be a lot worse

From what I understand the rumours are based on what people believed to be similarities in the spike proteins that the vaccine creates antibodies against to proteins required to create placenta. However even if this was true (it’s not, they would have to be exact), it would mean that covid itself causes the same issue - since the vaccine creates the same antibodies as the virus - which we also have no evidence to suggest is true.

Different analogy, it's like saying a golf cart and a ferrari are both cars, so obviously the engine from one will immediately fit in and work for the other. Both have engines that have perform the same function, but they are obviously not swappable.

Welcome to all my fellow travelers. Travel is a great way to open your eyes to the world we live in.
