Can Covid-19 Vaccine Cause Infertility in Men or Women?

Vaccination is going to start to control the coronavirus, which has killed more than one and a half lakh people in the country. But in the meantime, many kinds of confusion and rumours about corona vaccines are also being spread. Dilemmas are arising in the minds of people. There are many questions about the vaccine: whether it can affect fertility for those who are trying to conceive, or considering pregnancy /or in vitro fertilization (IVF): Does it lead to infertility? Should women trying to get pregnant receive the vaccine? What about those getting IVF (in vitro fertilization)? Does it lead to a fetal loss? 

Social media is playing a big role in this rumours outburst that the vaccine should not be given to women considering conception.  But, now you think, how can a vaccine which prevents a respiratory illness lead to infertility? Well, it won’t, but several falsely-claiming social media posts purported a link between the vaccine and infertility. 

The best infertility specialist in Faridabad,  Dr Astha Chakravarty says ‘there is no scientific data has shown that Vaccine could cause infertility in either men or women. COVID-19 vaccines cannot lead to infertility or miscarriage in women who may be expecting or the ones who may be planning to. So there is not need to take stress about your fertility or pregnancy. Stay calm and take precaution only’. 

The specialist from Best IVF Centre in Faridabad adds that pregnant women who get COVID-19 are at risk of having serious infections. But the good thing is that the infection doesn’t seem to cause problems with the pregnancy.  Also, women who are planning to get pregnant or getting fertility treatments may benefit from getting the COVID-19 vaccine. You can talk to your Specialist or can visit IVF Clinic in Faridabad to know what’s best for you.
