New Study Reveals COVID Vaccines Do Not Cause Female Sterility

New Study Reveals COVID Vaccines Do Not Cause Female Sterility

The American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) released a new study on the impact of the COVID-19 vaccine and fertility. Reports claiming that COVID-19 vaccines or illnesses cause female sterility are unfounded. In fact, this new study reveals COVID vaccines do not cause female sterility. Here is an excerpt from the American Society of Reproductive Medicine’s (ASRM) recent press release on the study:

“In a recent study published in ASRM’s Fertility & Sterility F&S Reports, Randy Morris, M.D. used frozen embryo transfer as a model for comparing the implantation rates between SARS-CoV-2 vaccine seropositive, infection seropositive, and seronegative women. His study concluded that there was no difference found in serum hCG documented implantation rates or sustained implantation rates among the three groups.

This study is critical because vaccine hesitancy in reproductive-aged women is concerning and has resulted from the spread of misinformation on social media stating that COVID-19 vaccines will cause sterility in women.

This study documented, for the first time in women, that seropositivity to the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein — whether from vaccination or COVID-19 infection — does not prevent embryo implantation or early pregnancy development. Physicians and other health professionals must counsel women of reproductive age that neither previous COVID-19 illness nor antibodies produced from vaccination to COVID-19 will cause sterility.” For more on the press release, read here.
