The Lowdown on the COVID-19 vaccine, periods and fertility

The Lowdown and NHS England have produced a guide and held a webinar on the COVID-19 vaccine and fertility.

The Lowdown teamed up with NHS colleagues to host an online chat with Reproductive Immunologist Dr Viki Male, and Consultant Obstetrician & Gynaecologist Dr Fatima Husain, to discuss the latest research on the COVID-19 vaccine, fertility and periods.

This guide details what was covered, including the latest evidence around the vaccine, information on the main concerns of young women and people who menstruate and the effects of the vaccine on periods and fertility. It also discusses other external factors that can affect the menstrual cycle. You can also watch the webinar for more insight from Dr Viki and Dr Fatima.
