Almost 1,300 Norwegian women have reported unexpected bleeding after taking the corona vaccine. Now the FHI plans to research whether there is a connection between the bleeding and the vaccination.
The Norwegian Medicines Agency has received reports from almost 1,300 women about menstrual disorders and unexpected abdominal bleeding after being vaccinated against COVID-19, the newspaper Aftenposten writes.
The Norwegian Institute of Public Health (FHI) thinks this number is so high that they want to take a closer look at the connection. Around 60,000 women are now taking part in a study where the goal is to find answers to the issue.
Project manager and doctor Lill-Iren Schou Trogstad at the FHI emphasizes that, as of today, they have no knowledge or reason to believe that side effects can affect fertility or that there is a connection between the vaccine and reduced fertility.
“But this large study will give us knowledge about the importance of vaccination for bleeding disorders and about possible consequences in the short and long term,” Trogstad noted.
As bleeding has also occurred in postmenopausal women, they are included in the studies. The age range in the study will range from teenagers to 80-year-olds.
