Beninati talks about COVID vaccines and temporary cycle changes on NBC-15

 Beninati talks about COVID vaccines and temporary cycle changes on NBC-15

new study published in the Green Journal found that COVID vaccines can cause brief, temporary changes to menstrual cycles. Michael Beninati, MD, of the UW Ob-Gyn Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine joined NBC-15 Madison to explain why those temporary cycle changes are not cause for alarm and do not indicate future fertility issues.

“But MD Michael Beninati, an OBGYN at UW Health, says there is no evidence to suggest the vaccine impacts a woman’s ability to conceive.

“Those changes seem to be short-lived, and as we study more long-term consequences, namely on the ability to conceive, there does not appear to be any association between the COVID-19 vaccine and a decreased ability to conceive,” said Dr. Beninati.”
