The Monster Inside: Living With Pre-menstrual Dysphoric Disorder

Yet again we're hearing reports of women who are experiencing issues with their menstrual cycle after taking a dose of a coronavirus mRNA vaccine. This time, the European Medicines Agency is taking a look into the shot's effect on menstruation.

When the coronavirus vaccines first rolled out, countless women shared experiences of their menstrual cycle being significantly affected from the shot. These women were silenced and told by "experts" everywhere that there was no connection whatsoever between the vaccine and menstrual disorders. But more and more evidence is coming out over the last several months vindicating these women and raising some serious questions about the vaccine's effect on menstrual cycles.

The EMA Is Investigating Menstrual Disorders Caused by the Vaccine

On February 11, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) announced that it was reviewing reports of heavy menstrual bleeding and lack of menstruation altogether amongst women who were administered the coronavirus mRNA vaccine from Moderna or Pfizer.

The safety committee of this agency has said that they don't yet know what the connection is between disrupted menstrual cycles and the vaccine, but they're beginning an investigation to discover what it might be.

Some Other Studies Have Explored This Correlation

A study funded by the National Institutes of Health surveyed 4,000 women who tracked their cycle with an app. The data showed that those who received a coronavirus vaccine saw a change in the length of their menstrual cycle.

Dr. Alison Edelman of Oregon Health & Science University explained, "For instance, a person used to a 28-day cycle may experience a 29-day cycle after getting the vaccine, meaning their 'period' (menses) may begin a day later."

Another study in Norway suggested that women experienced heavier bleeding than normal during menstruation after they were vaccinated. 13.6% reported heavier periods after the first shot and 15.3% said the same after the second shot.

As of September 2021, there are new studies being conducted by Boston University, Harvard Medical School, Johns Hopkins University, Michigan State University, and Oregon Health and Science University to find the potential link between coronavirus vaccines and irregular periods. This process will take roughly a year, and they're studying women of all ages and backgrounds.

The more research that comes out pointing to the link between menstrual irregularities and the coronavirus vaccine, the more we think about all the women who came forward to speak about these very changes and were gaslit into thinking it was all in their heads. Although it must be mildly satisfying for these women to say "I told you so," it will never turn back time and give these women the courtesy of merely listening to their experiences that came along with the vaccine.
