ANAHEIM, Calif. — COVID-19 vaccination and SARS-CoV-2 infection were not associated with clinically significant changes in menstrual cycle length, data presented here confirmed.

Any observed statistically significant differences in menstrual cycle length were resolved by the second month after vaccination or infection.

“We can say with a lot of reassurance that getting the vaccine or getting an infection should not change your menstrual cyclicity,” Eduardo Hariton, MD, MBA, a reproductive endocrinologist at the Reproductive Science Center of the Bay Area in San Ramon, California, told Healio.

In this video, Hariton discusses the findings in depth, which he hopes will encourage people who are hesitant about the vaccine to get vaccinated.
