Covid 19, vaccination, fertility
(Number) = source reference

Many women have gotten pregnant since the pandemic began, and Covid 19 does not appear to affect the pregnancy or the fetus itself (1).
However, a woman who became infected late in pregnancy is at risk of having the disease for a longer time than a woman who is not pregnant.

Does the Covid-19 vaccination increase the risk of infertility, miscarriages, stillbirths or congenital deformities?

The approved COVID-19 vaccines do not contain live viruses. It is very unlikely that the vaccine could cause infertility, miscarriages in the first or second trimester, stillbirths, or congenital birth defects. However, there are currently no clinical studies with enough data to shed light on this (2).

Should I be vaccinated even though I am on fertility treatment?

You can be vaccinated during fertility treatment, but remember: There should be 21 to 28 days between the first and second vaccination. If you get pregnant before the second vaccine is given, you should not get the second vaccination until after you are born (3). There should be a few days between vaccination and fertility treatment (4).

Can I be vaccinated if I am pregnant?

Pregnant women should not be vaccinated according to the SSI (Statens Serum Institut) as the vaccine has not been tested on pregnant women (1). In the United States, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) recommends that everyone be vaccinated, including women planning to conceive and women newly pregnant (5). The European Fertility Association ESHRE has not yet commented on vaccinations and fertility treatments.
Why pregnant women cannot and should not be vaccinated has a very simple explanation:

For ethical reasons, the vaccine cannot be tested on pregnant women – pregnancy is generally an exclusion criterion in vaccination and drug studies.
Because the vaccine has not been tested on pregnant women, the potential effects on babies and pregnancy have not yet been adequately researched.
In principle, pregnant women do not have an increased risk of Covid infection due to their pregnancy.
