CTT #57: How do Covid-19 vaccines alter fertility, childbirth, menstrual cycles?

pregnant woman and covid-19

Research on 4,000 women over six months found that Covid-19 vaccines are linked to a small increase in menstrual cycle length. Such a delay is common when a woman’s body mounts an immune response, says cohost Dr. Robert Pearl.

Other scientific studies have examined the link between vaccine status in pregnant mothers and relative immunity in their newborn children, as well as the link between vaccination and fertility in men. Jeremy Corr and Dr. Pearl dive into the data on this episode of Coronavirus: The Truth to examine those topics and the following [time stamped] questions:
