Not everyone would get vaccinated against corona immediately. Reports of possible infertility from corona vaccination cause uncertainty. That’s what the expert says.
- The corona vaccinations currently approved in the EU by Biontech / Pfizer, Moderna and Astrazeneca * are considered well tolerated and safe according to the current state of knowledge.
- According to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), those who get vaccinated reduce the risk of a serious disease course, which can be accompanied by dangerous symptoms such as shortness of breath and even psychosis.
- But there are citizens who shy away from vaccination. They are put off by reports of side effects, including possible infertility. However, there is no solid evidence for the latter.
A Merkur survey with around 31,000 participants showed: Almost 55 percent of the survey participants would immediately be vaccinated against Corona. 31 percent are still undecided and want to wait and see. A total of 14 percent generally cannot be vaccinated and accordingly do not want to be immunized against corona. In the debate about the advantages and disadvantages of a corona vaccination, the question arises again and again whether a corona vaccination can make you sterile.
The President of the Paul Ehrlich Institute (Federal Institute for Vaccines and Biomedical Medicines) Klaus Cichutek counts this topic among a whole series of fake news that are circulating around corona vaccinations. There is no indication and no basis that the vaccines could genetically change humans or their body cells in any way, he emphasized according to the editorial network Germany: “Nor is there any evidence that there will be any fertility problems. This is all nonsense.“Also, the doctor and virologist Sandra Ciesek explains in the NDR podcast” Coronavirus Update “that there is no indication that corona vaccinations make sterile. “(…) there is no medical evidence that this rumor is really true and that fertility is impaired by the vaccination and the antibodies that are formed against the spike protein,” said Ciesek in an NDR interview.

Corona vaccination does not negatively affect pregnant women
The Deutsche Apotheker Zeitung (DAZ) also reported that there is no evidence that a corona vaccination has a negative effect on fertility. The DAZ cites a statement by the German Society for Perinatal Medicine (DGPM), which it issued with several specialist societies and working groups in gynecology, prenatal and obstetrical medicine, obstetrics, reproductive medicine and endocrinology as well as the professional association of gynecologists. Accordingly, it is a rumor that the experts cannot confirm.
Getting pregnant naturally
If the baby wish does not come true for a long time, couples need to stay tuned. In her book “Becoming pregnant: The holistic path to the desired child – With new findings from egg cell research” (promotional link) midwife Kareen Dannhauer provides information on which initiatives promote pregnancy. A special focus is on naturopathic options, the optimal supply of nutrients and current egg cell research.
The opinion said that women who become pregnant after the first dose of the vaccine should receive a second dose. Background: The corona vaccinations approved so far in Germany include two vaccination doses. According to the DAZ, vaccination during a still unknown pregnancy also has no negative impact on the mother and the development of unborn life.
