The COVID-19 Vaccine Has Been Falsely Linked to Infertility. Here’s What You Should Know.

Living in a world where the response to Covid-19 is rapidly changing, it is increasingly important that our 23Plus patients have access to accurate information about the COVID-19 vaccine and its false links to infertility.

Because there's plenty of data from existing clinical trials for the vaccine that supports it. "No loss of fertility has been reported among trial participants or among the millions who have received the vaccines since their authorization, and no signs of infertility appeared in animal studies," a joint statement from ACOG, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), and the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine (SMFM) said.
