A Study Finds That Covid Vaccines Do Not Impair Fertility

A new study adds to growing evidence that there is no connection between Covid-19 vaccinations and a reduced chance of conceiving a baby.

Rather, couples in the study had slightly lower chances of conception if the male partner had been infected with the coronavirus within 60 days — which offers even more reason to get vaccinated against Covid-19, since the illness could affect male fertility in the short term, according to the study, published Thursday in the American Journal of Epidemiology.

“These findings indicate that male SARS-CoV-2 infection may be associated with a short-term decline in fertility and that COVID-19 vaccination does not impair fertility in either partner,” Amelia Wesselink and her fellow researchers — from the Boston University School of Public Health and other institutions across the United States — wrote in the study. SARS-CoV-2 is the name of the virus that causes Covid-19.
