Large Cohort Study Finds Covid-19 Vaccination Linked to Unexpected Vaginal Bleeding
Conspiracies coming true is getting boring now
A new large cohort study, also reported on in Nature, links Covid vaccines to unexpected vaginal bleeding. Who allowed Nature to publish something by right wing, tin-foil hat wearing conspiracy theorists!?
“Women who don’t menstruate — including postmenopausal women and those on contraceptives — were several times more likely to experience unexpected vaginal bleeding after COVID-19 vaccination than before the vaccines were offered.”
The Norwegian Institute of Public Health followed several cohorts throughout the pandemic and early performed a systematic data collection of self-reported unexpected vaginal bleeding in nonmenstruating women.
Kristine Blix from the Norwegian Institute of Public Health in Oslo spearheaded the investigation. Her research team wanted to systematically assess the anecdotal reports of women who experienced heavier-than-usual menstrual bleeding after receiving COVID-19 jabs. They were particularly interested in exploring this phenomenon among women who aren’t expected to have menstrual cycles.
To carry out this analysis, the research team tapped into an existing dataset, the Norwegian Mother, Father, and Child Cohort Study. They exploited the bi-weekly questionnaires that have been dispatched to cohort participants since the onset of the pandemic.
The team gathered a sizable amount of data, accumulating more than 21,000 responses from women across various categories: postmenopausal, perimenopausal, and non-menstruating premenopausal women. Among these, they found 252 postmenopausal women, 1,008 perimenopausal women, and 924 premenopausal women who reported experiencing unexpected vaginal bleeding.
Notably, half of each group claimed that the unusual bleeding occurred within the four weeks following either their first or second vaccine dose. When they crunched the numbers, the results were indeed concerning. For premenopausal and perimenopausal women, the risk of experiencing unexpected bleeding was three to five times higher in the month after vaccination. For postmenopausal women, the risk increased two- to threefold.
Unexpected vaginal bleeding after menopause is generally a medical concern, often being an early sign of conditions like endometrial carcinoma and precancerous lesions. Given this fact, the implications of the study extend beyond mere side effects to a territory that could significantly affect diagnostic considerations for physicians.
While the study didn’t delve into the mechanisms behind the unexpected bleeding, it suggested the possibility that the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein used in the vaccines might be the culprit. But remember, the vaccine stays in your arm.
Of course the study chanted the vaccine mantra of “safe and effective” even with these worrying side effects.
In October 2022, the European Medicines Agency took note of this phenomenon and updated the side-effect information of mRNA vaccines like Moderna and Pfizer–BioNTech to include heavy menstrual bleeding.
Kristine Blix stresses that female bleeding patterns should be included as endpoints in future clinical trials of vaccines and possibly other medications. This viewpoint is shared by Kate Clancy, a biological anthropologist at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, whose own research aligns with the findings of the Norwegian study. Clancy celebrates that more attention is being given to peri- and postmenopausal people, a demographic that is often overlooked in medical research.
This is an interesting and important study, however we knew all this two years ago when actual women started reporting these side effects. But, these women were gas-lit and told that it was nothing to do with the vaccine. I wonder what other side effects will be acknowledged in years to come? The vaccines were developed at warp-speed whilst the adverse reactions are being acknowledged at snail-speed.
