Spain evaluates menstrual disorders after the anti-COVID vaccine
European drug agencies evaluated in the second half of 2021 whether the COVID-19 vaccine could be causing menstrual disorders. They concluded, after reviewing all the information then available for each of the vaccines, that there was insufficient data to support "the hypothesis of a possible causal relationship."
Now, the Spanish Medicines Agency (AEMPS) has reported that it is starting a new evaluation as a result of "two studies that suggest an increase in the frequency of these disorders after vaccination, with slight and transitory changes in menstrual cycles."
