Will the COVID-19 vaccine affect my chances of having a baby?
In a new study funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), found that there is no difference in chances of conception between vaccinated and unvaccinated couples. Read more on the study here.
The study found that the chance of conception was only slightly reduced if the male partner had tested positive for COVID-19 within 60 days before the female partners menstrual cycle.
These finding suggest that COVID-19 could reduce male fertility, but only temporarily.
Despite the potential and temporary affects to male fertility, vaccination status does not seem to impair fertility overall.
The results of this study suggest that vaccination against COVID-19 has no harmful association with fertility. Vaccination could potentially decrease the risk that the virus poses to both maternal and fetal health.
