30,000 women have reported their periods being altered after getting the COVID-19 vaccine.Research is needed to understand why this is happening, according to a paper in the British Medical Journal.Periods can be heavier or delayed because of an immune response and poses no danger to one's body, say experts.See more stories on Insider's business page.Since the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines, thousands of women in the UK have been saying that their periods have been disrupted, say experts.More than 30,000 women said their menstrual cycle being somewhat altered after getting the COVID-19 vaccine, reported Sky News.The UK's Yellow Card scheme, where people can voluntarily report their side effects to any medication - including vaccinations - has shown that many women have seen a disruption in their periods.Dr. Victoria Male, a reproductive immunologist from Imperial College London, wrote in the British Medical Journal that while these changes are safe and short-lived, has stated that an investigation as to why this happens is crucial.In the US, the National Institute of Health is investing $1.67 million into understanding how the COVID-19 vaccines impact periods.Dr. Male states that periods can be heavier or delayed because of an immune response, and poses no danger to one's body."Robust research into this possible adverse reaction remains critical to the overall success of the vaccination program. One important lesson is that the effects of medical interventions on menstruation should not be an afterthought in future research," wrote Dr. Male.Writing in The Telegraph, Caroline Criado-Perez, author of Invisible Women, said: "As with most clinical studies, the Covid-19 vaccine trials did not investigate menstrual cycle effects - in fact, in many trials women are wholesale excluded because of potential menstrual cycle effects."
Robert W Malone, MD@RWMaloneMDSep 18‘no biologically plausible mechanism by which current vaccines would cause any impact on women’s fertility’I strongly disagree. This is not science, this is the new faith - denial sciencism. And you know who the high priest is.1) novel synthetic lipid accumulation in ovarian tissue2) coagulopathy driven by spike affecting highly vascular tissue3) platelet irregularities including anti-platelet antibodiesI can go on and on listing hypotheses that are biologically plausible. As can many others.

Why didn’t doctors listen to women about the link between Covid vaccines and periods?A new study reveals that thousands of women experienced irregularities after their jab – yet the medical establishment seems disinterested
The National Institutes of Health has awarded one-year supplemental grants totaling $1.67 million to five institutions to explore potential links between COVID-19 vaccination and menstrual changes. Some women have reported experiencing irregular or missing menstrual periods, bleeding that is heavier than usual, and other menstrual changes after receiving COVID-19 vaccines. The new awards support research to determine whether such changes may be linked to COVID-19 vaccination itself and how long the changes last. Researchers also will seek to clarify the mechanisms underlying potential vaccine-related menstrual changes.
