The Covid vaccine doesn't cause infertility, but the disease might

Source: nbc news


The symptoms of Covid-19 could affect both male and female fertility in different ways.

Worries that the Covid-19 vaccine could cause infertility are among the reasons people give for avoiding vaccination. While there’s no evidence any of the Covid vaccines cause problems with fertility, becoming severely ill from the disease has the potential to do so, reproduction experts say, making vaccination all the more important.



“There is evidence to suggest that infection with SARS-CoV-2 has the potential to impact both male fertility, female fertility, and certainly the health of a pregnancy of someone infected,” said Dr. Jennifer Kawwass, a reproductive endocrinologist and associate professor at the Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta. “And there is simultaneously no evidence that the vaccine has any negative impact on male or female fertility.”



Researchers have been studying the effects of Covid on the human reproductive system since the beginning of the pandemic. While there’s no evidence that Covid can be sexually transmitted, research suggests that the cells in the reproductive system are feasible targets for the virus, because they carry some of the receptors the coronavirus must bind to in order to enter cells.

The idea that a virus could cause infertility is not unprecedented. “We do have historic evidence that there are certain viruses that are more likely to impact either male or female fertility,” Kawwass said.

For example, human papillomavirus (HPV), hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV infections have all been linked to decreased fertility. It’s unclear, however, if a respiratory virus, like the coronavirus, could have the same effect. But the fact that male and female reproductive organs have the receptors the Covid virus targets means it’s certainly plausible that the virus could cause fertility issues, she said. .......................................

3. It is horrifying to read about the young women who die after the baby is delivered

There was one who lost twins in the 7th month...

I have to say, having been pregnant when we were told not to drink coffee... I understand the reluctance. But we have to get the word out. The vaccine doesn't hurt the pregnant woman or the fetus. Covid could kill both.

4. I am conflicted.

Should we push for everyone to be vaccinated?

Or should we push for the idiots to not be vaccinated and get infected? And they lose their ability to populate more.

7. 8 billion is too many.

The latter question is very tempting.
