In a recent analysis by Igor Chudov, two studies on Covid vaccines and miscarriages were scrutinized, revealing potential concerns about the reliability of their conclusions.
One noteworthy observation made by Chudov is the disparate figures for miscarriage rates after the sixth week of pregnancy in the two studies. The first study reported an 8% miscarriage rate, while the second, conducted with women vaccinated during pregnancy, indicated a significantly higher 14.1%, almost twice as much.
Critically, the difference in figures raises questions about the impact of vaccination timing on miscarriage risk. The study with the higher miscarriage rate exclusively involved women vaccinated during pregnancy, whereas the lower rate was derived from a study where not all women were vaccinated, and those who were received the vaccine at any point before the miscarriage. It is important to note that the vaccination status of the women in the second study during the pregnancy itself remains unclear.
If the data from both studies are deemed reliable and comparable, a concerning pattern emerges, suggesting that being vaccinated during pregnancy may nearly double the risk of miscarriage, particularly after the sixth week. However, caution is warranted when drawing conclusions, as comparing data from different sources always carries potential pitfalls.
Nevertheless, the fact that these studies, published in reputable journals, provide estimates of miscarriage risk after the sixth week of pregnancy, and the one with exclusively vaccinated pregnant women reports a significantly higher rate, raises legitimate concerns.
This analysis gains significance in light of existing knowledge about vaccine-related menstrual abnormalities and findings from animal biodistribution studies indicating vaccine accumulation in the ovaries. The potential implications underscore the importance of further research and a nuanced understanding of the risks associated with Covid vaccination during pregnancy.
