Following multiple scientific reports, the European Medicines Agency decided to revise its conclusions.
European health watchdog, the European Health Watchdog, has launched a review of a possible connection between Moderna and Pfizer Covid vaccids and menstrual disorders. This was reported by tens to thousands of women.
The European Medicines Agency (EMA) said on Friday that its safety committee (PRAC) “Assessment of reported cases of heavy bleeding or absence of periods (amenorrhea), using COVID-19 vaccines Spikevax & Comirnaty.”
Spikevax and Comirnaty are the respective brand names for the Moderna and Pfizer BioNTech vaccines.
The regulator emphasized that, following previous analysis of the cycle change reports, the PRAC concluded that that “The evidence does not show a causal relationship between vaccines and menstrual problems..” However, the committee decided to request “An in-depth assessment” of all available information “In view of the spontaneous reporting of menstrual disorder with either vaccines or findings from the literature.”
The EMA said cycle disorders are very common and may be caused by a wide variety of factors, including stress and tiredness, so at the moment it is impossible to say if there is “A causal link” between the Covid-19 vaccines and heavy periods or amenorrhea.
“Also, there is no evidence that COVID-19 vaccidals affect fertility.” the watchdog said.
EMA’s announcement follows a similar statement by the UK Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). Last August, the regulator announced that it was reviewing reported cases of women experiencing menstrual disorder after vaccination. However, it said that the number of reports “It is very low in comparison to the overall number of women who have had COVID-19 vaccinations and the prevalence of menstrual problems..”
According to MHRA’s figures, up until February 2, 2022 a total of 49,427 suspected cases of menstrual disorders were reported after all three of the Covid-19 vaccines used in the UK: AstraZeneca, Pfizer, and Moderna.
According to the research by Dr. Victoria Male from Imperial College London, published in the British Medical Journal, though post-vaccination changes to the menstrual cycle are “It is short-lived,” robust research into these possible side effects “The overall success of the vaccine program depends on it..”
