COVID-19 vaccines do not affect fertility

There have been a number of stories suggesting that the COVID-19 vaccine can cause irregular menstrual cycles or affect fertility. These stories are not accurate. The Society of

Obstetrician and Gynecologists of Canada(SOGC) released this statement:

“There is absolutely no evidence, and no theoretic reason to suspect that the COVID-19 vaccine could impair male or female fertility. These rumors are unfounded and harmful. ”

Information regarding COVID-19 in people who are pregnant or pregnancy planning is available in our April 27, 2021 News Update. The full SOCG statement can be found at:
