Do the COVID-19 vaccines affect my chances of pregnancy?
No, there’s no evidence that any vaccines, including COVID-19 vaccines, influence your chances of getting pregnant despite a myth suggesting otherwise.
Medical experts say there’s no biological reason the shots would affect fertility. And real-world evidence offers more assurance for anyone worried about their chances of conceiving: In Pfizer’s study, a similar number of women became pregnant in the group given the vaccine as in the group given dummy shots.
耶魯大學醫學院的婦科醫生及教授瑪莉珍．敏津 (Dr. Mary Jane Minkin)表示，研究人員正在著手開始研究關於接種疫苗後短期變化的傳聞報告，但到目前為止，沒有任何跡象可以證明這些針劑會使生育能力受到威脅。
Researchers are starting to study anecdotal reports of short-term changes to periods after the vaccine, but there’s no indication so far that the shots put fertility at risk, said Dr. Mary Jane Minkin, a gynecologist, and professor at the Yale University School of Medicine.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and obstetrician groups also recommend COVID-19 vaccines for pregnant individuals, who have a higher risk of severe illness if infected with the coronavirus. Research shows pregnant people who get the virus are more likely to be admitted to intensive care, receive invasive ventilation, and die than their nonpregnant peers.
The CDC also followed tens of thousands of pregnant women who got the vaccines and found they had comparable pregnancy outcomes to pregnant women before the pandemic.
