A media anthropoligist Dr Kate Clancy shared her experience on Twitter of an unusually heavy period after Moderna vaccine. She’d received dozens of similar accounts in response.
There are reports that are saying the cause of the irregular periods might not be the shot per se. Be it can be a possibility of fever that might result from vaccine. Fevers lead to delays in egg production. Possibly, cycle is getting influenced by it.
Still, there is no official confirmation and it is best advised to consult with doctors who observe significant changes in their periods after taking the jabs of the vaccine.
However, Dr Victoria Male, a reproductive immunologist at Imperial College London, pointed out that some post-menopausal women and people taking hormones tablets stop their periods, have reported bleeding. So, she suspected that possibly it’s a physical reaction occurring, according to a BBC report.
