How do you fight infertility

Does the corona vaccination make you sterile?

No evidence of possible infertility

Some professionals fear that the vaccine will not only fight the virus, but possibly a pregnant woman's placenta as well. The reason: there are so-called syncytin-1 proteins on the placenta, which are similar to the spike protein. The assumption: If the immune system learns to attack the spike protein through the vaccination, it can also attack syncytin - and thus the placenta. Is that correct?

"That is extremely unlikely," says Prof. Dr. Dr. Luka Cicin-Sain from the Helmholtz Center for Infection Research. "That would mean that every woman who has survived a corona infection will be sterile afterwards. Her immune system has also made antibodies against the spike protein." You can of course never completely rule out a residual risk, no matter how unlikely it is. "But there are now millions of women who have become infected with SARS-CoV-2, and no increased risk of infertility has been found in them," says Luka Cicin-Sain. So far, however, there has been no evidence that women have had fertility disorders after a SARS-CoV-2 infection.

Prof. Dr. Klaus Cichutek, President of the Paul Ehrlich Institute (Federal Institute for Vaccines and Biomedical Medicines) made it clear in a press briefing: "The data currently rule out such problems."
