Coronavirus vaccine safe to be taken during menstruation, confirm doctors

Social media can be just as misleading as informant it is. As India is fighting the second wave of coronavirus infection, fake news, forward messages, and the flow of information too, has surged exponentially. But before you believe certain information and press the send button, think twice, check the source if needed, do the research and not fall prey to it.

Here is a fake news you must know isn’t true. These days, social media is buzzing with a claim that women should not take the covid-19 vaccine if they are menstruating or during their periods.

However, this is not true. Gynecologists have confirmed that the vaccine is safe during menstruation. According to Dr. Usha Rani, Gynecologist, menstruation is a normal routine of a female body. Vaccination will not impact the process of menstruation just like any other activity like eating or drinking for example.

She added that even though women experience hormonal changes during their periods, taking a vaccine will not have an impact on it.

Dr. Shekar Salkar while conversing with PIB quashed the rumor and urged people to stop forwarding false claims on social media.

Should you get vaccinated when pregnant?

While speaking on the matter, the doctor said that even though there is no medical evidence of vaccination affecting a pregnant lady, they usually advise them not to get vaccinated while carrying a baby.

A vaccine is an antibody to an infection. It may have certain side effects or reactions, hence, it is advisable not to get vaccinated during the course of your pregnancy.

Dr. Manohar Agnani, Additional Secretary, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare on January 14, 2021, had in vaccination guidelines informed pregnant and lactating women to not take the covid-19 vaccine as they were not a part of any covid-19 vaccination trial process.
