NIH Announces Study for Vaccine and Menstrual Health. Um, Didn't the FDA Approve Vax Already?!
Remember, if you don't get the poke, you're literally killing people. Never mind that vaccines are supposed to protect he, she or ze who takes the vaccine. 2020 and 2021 are all about shifting the overton window. Over the past few weeks and months, women have been told there's no reproductive fear in taking the jab. So just do it already. Except now the NIH has announced a 1.67 million smacker study to investigate taking the COVID vax and how it might affect people who menstruate. Which seems, I dunno, kind of like maybe what we were told initially maybe wasn't entirely accurate or something, possibly and allegedly.
From the New York Post:
It's been a little over six months since the three COVID-19 vaccines in the US — Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson — became widely available to all adults. But even in the early days of vaccine rollout, some women were noticing irregular periods following their shots, as reported first by the Lily in April.
Shana Clauson, 45, spoke to the Washington Post's women's news site at the time, and again this week, about her experience after getting the jab — revealing that her period arrived earlier and heavier than what she considers normal. She was one of many who gathered on social media to share what they were seeing.
If you're not a menstruating person, let me clue you in: women pay close attention to their visits from Aunt Flo. I know the feminists have made bleeding from their whatevers seem like a hot button issue insisting there's such a thing as "period shame" (lol, no), but regardless of what those swamp harpies screech, menstruation is an important function of our feminine bodies. We notice when things change. We know what's normal for us. We get alarmed when things are not normal. Just like any other function of a human body. When something is off, you take notice and monitor it. I know each and everyone of you has consulted Doctor Google when something is amiss. Do not even lie to me about it.
So yes, if a woman gets poked and her flow changes, she's going to notice. She'll be concerned. This isn't as simple as "I ate something that disagreed with me" and you wait in misery as your body expels it. Often the thought that comes to mind when something is off about a period is "Does this mean I cannot have children."
What's disturbing, despite the fluffy fluff language The New York Post stuffed its article with, is the insistence it's still fine for ladies to take the vaccine. Even though NIH is going to study how the vaccine affects reproductive health. After the FDA has greenlit the vaccine. Perhaps I'm just being too rational about it, but shouldn't "how does this affect reproduction" have been studied before?
Perhaps this is why vaccines take time. Maybe one reason people are hesitant to take the jab is ALL OF THIS.
