Thousands of women have complained about menstrual health issues after being immunized against the deadly disease.
Britain’s Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) recorded nearly 4,000 period problem cases due to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Virus vaccines until May 17, 2021. According to the Sunday Times, this includes 2,734 reports linked to the University of Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine, 1,158 to the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, and 66 to the Moderna vaccine.
Authorities acknowledge the vaccines carry some risk of patients experiencing adverse side-effects.
“MHRA is closely monitoring reports of menstrual disorders (period problems) and unexpected vaginal bleeding following vaccination against COVID-19 in the United Kingdom,” the agency said on its website. “A range of menstrual disorders have been reported after all three of the COVID-19 vaccines including heavier than usual periods, delayed periods and unexpected vaginal bleeding.”
However, “independent experts” from the Commission on Human Medicines’s COVID-19 Vaccines Benefit Risk Expert Working Group, and Medicines for Women’s Health Expert Advisory Group, are still not convinced the CCP Virus vaccine is to blame for period problems.
“The current evidence does not suggest an increased risk of either menstrual disorders or unexpected vaginal bleeding following the vaccines,” MHRA said on its website.
These “experts” explained nearly 4,000 reports of period problems were not enough to warrant a public health warning.
“The number of reports of menstrual disorders and vaginal bleeding is low in relation to both the number of females who have received COVID-19 (CCP Virus) vaccines to date, and how common menstrual disorders are generally,” the agency said.
However, Victoria Male believes the real number of women suffering period problems is much higher than reported. The Imperial College London reproductive immunology leader revealed many women are unaware of the MHRA’s Yellow Card scheme, which lets patients report suspected side effects after taking the jab.
“Lots of people” have told Male about experiencing a late or unusually heavy period after receiving the CCP Virus vaccine.
“[This is] very similar to the reports we are seeing in Yellow Card,” she said according to Yahoo Life.
BL understands women aged between 30 and 49 are at the highest risk of experiencing menstrual issues, which often involve “heavier than usual” bleeding or a missed period.
Period abnormalities affect up to a quarter of women of childbearing age. Possible symptoms include more or lighter than usual bleeding, late or early periods, and cramps. Hormonal changes and stress, as well as certain medical disorders and drugs, are frequently blamed for causing these complaints according to the Daily Mail.
Although all three CCP Virus vaccinations are advertised to be safe for women, Britons under the age of 40 are regularly offered alternatives to AstraZeneca due to the risk of developing blood clots.
The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation also recommends that pregnant women be provided the Pfizer and Moderna vaccinations where available.
Similar side-effects have been recorded across the United States after immunization. However, scientists are reluctant to confirm any link between the CCP Virus and period problems.
