The New England Journal of Medicine posted a correction last week quietly conceding that the current COVID vaccines may not be safe for pregnant women.
The study was updated after it found that 104 of 827 pregnant participants experienced a spontaneous abortion after receiving the COVID vaccine. That is roughly 1 of 8 pregnant women.
The study concludes that “Given that there was a relatively small number of completed pregnancies …. Shimabukuro et al. acknowledge the limitations in their ability to draw conclusions about spontaneous abortions, congenital anomalies, and other potential rare neonatal outcomes.”
Several doctors spoke out about some of these risks at a recent FDA hearing on the approval of booster shots.
A popular news outlet in the UK, recently reported that more than 30,000 British women have reported disruption to their periods after getting a COVID vaccine.
According to another report from the Washington Post, tens of thousands of women in the US are also reporting menstrual disruption and heavier periods from the COVID-19 vaccines. The report states that because of these complaints, over $1 million dollars is now going into researching it.
Shana Clauson, a 45-year-old who lives in Hudson, Wisconsin, received her first dose of the vaccine in March. Just a few days later, she experienced an earlier and much heavier period than normal.
“Is this not being discussed, or is it even being looked at or researched because it’s a ‘woman’s issue?’ ” Clauson asked at the time. “I hope that if this is going to be a side effect for women, that it’s being addressed and women know this could happen.”
