Women’s menstrual cycles may be disrupted by the COVID-19 vaccination, according to new study. 42 percent of women who were vaccinated had more bleeding, according to a research published in Science Advances. No change was noted by 44 percent of female participants; 14 percent reported lighter periods. After receiving the COVID vaccination, some women who had been deemed nonmenstruating, such as those who had reached menopause, began bleeding profusely.
Over 39,000 participants between the ages of 18 and 80 were surveyed for the study. Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson or Novavax were among the vaccines given to many of the participants in the survey. An expert in gynecologic health and a researcher at the National Institutes of Health has argued that it may be time to look deeper into this study’s findings, despite claims by the authors of the study that they were only interested in providing information for prospective studies and not in establishing cause and effect.
Three genetic changes in the spike protein of the unique variety, which resembles its close relative BA.4, allow it to circumvent the protection afforded by vaccinations. In addition, persons who have already been infected with COVID might be reinfected by it. The number of patients in need of critical care has increased by 23% in the last two weeks, despite the fact that hospitalizations are still lower than at the height of COVID.
Due to the rise of the BA. 5 Variant, COVID-19 seems to be climbing in the United States again. Officials in the field of public health are urging people to arm themselves against the new coronavirus strain, which is responsible for approximately 65 percent of all cases in the United States. This week alone, there were 123, 365 daily instances on the 7-day moving average. Dr. Ashish Jha, the White House’s COVID-19 response coordinator, advised immunocompromised Americans over the age of 50 to be re-booted at a briefing on Tuesday. The number of cases seems to be increasing within this group.
