Study shows menstrual changes after Covid vaccines effected more ‘people’ than previously known

A new study has provided some indication that those who’d complained about the COVID vaccine affecting their periods weren’t full of conspiratorial schiff after all.

“An analysis published Friday in the journal Science Advances found that 42% of people with regular menstrual cycles said they bled more heavily than usual after vaccination. Meanwhile, 44% reported no change and around 14% reported a lighter period,” NBC News reported Friday.

“Among nonmenstruating people — those post-menopause or who use certain long-term contraceptives, for example — the study suggests many experienced breakthrough or unexpected bleeding after their Covid shots,” the outlet added.

The survey reportedly involved 39,000 participants between the ages of 18 and 80 and began in April of 2021, “around the time people began to report unexpected bleeding and heavier flow post-vaccine.”

“The study authors cautioned, though, that the percentages do not necessarily represent the rate of menstrual changes in the general population, since people who observed a difference were more likely to participate. The survey’s aim was simply to provide evidence for future studies, not to establish cause and effect,” according to NBC News.

Notice the use of the word “people” instead of women. This isn’t a coincidence. The actual study itself repeatedly refers to women as “people.”

The reaction to this reporting has been four-fold.

First and foremost, critics have complained about having previously been called conspiracy theorists for suggesting that abnormal periods were related to the COVID vaccine.

And indeed, even The New York Times, to its credit, admitted — or at least strongly suggested — that this really did happen.

[M]any medical experts initially brushed aside concerns when women and gender-diverse people started reporting erratic menstrual cycles after receiving the shots,” the outlet reported Friday.

Notice the use of the term “gender-diverse people.”

Second, critics have responded by correctly noting that only WOMEN menstruate. Not “people.” Women.


Third, critics have recounted their own abnormal-period stories.


And fourth, critics have complained about the media’s apparent conclusion.

“For some, a side effect of getting vaccinated was a change in menstrual cycles — but experts say there is no cause for alarm,” the Times reported.

No cause for alarm? Critics staunchly disagreed, particularly because these are presumably the same “experts” who’d initially “brushed aside” concerns about the vaccine affecting women’s periods.
