Coronavirus & Fertility – Will COVID-19 Affect Reproductive Health?

Coronavirus & Fertility – Will COVID-19 Affect Reproductive Health?

Every other news channel was telecasting updates related to COVID-19 and soaring cases over the past couple of months as well as the new wave of infection spreading worldwide. We have been told every time that we should stay at home and wash our hands frequently. But many couples are still worried if this outbreak could affect their reproductive health and fertility. Here’s what experts have to say.

If I contract COVID-19, will it affect reproductive health later?

Well, there is no solid evidence that can prove that Coronavirus has anything to do with pregnancy or fertility. A lot of couples are looking for egg freezing considering the increasing fears of Coronavirus. But you shouldn’t panic if you are safe from the virus. There is no official medical indication that you should look for egg freezing. There is nothing researchers understand and know any detail about Coronavirus that can justify any ART procedure like egg freezing.

Should you delay the pregnancy due to Coronavirus?

There is no medical reason that can justify delaying the conception if you haven’t contracted the virus. But there may be some emotional, mental, and logistic reasons to change your plans. It is completely up to you whether you plan your pregnancy now or later. Ask your doctor for any special suggestions.

There is still lack of evidence to prove the effect of COVID-19 on pregnancy. But if you have COVID-19 already, it is highly recommended to delay the pregnancy, at least, until you get fully recovered before trying to conceive.

Does COVID-19 affect eggs?

There is no solid evidence about the effect of viruses on oocytes. However, if you have symptoms like the flu, you should delay fertility therapy. If you have been in contact with anyone around you who has been found positive, you should avoid it for two weeks.

Is Coronavirus passed to an unborn child?

There is no risk of passing COVID-19 from a pregnant woman to her child. They may not be more vulnerable to severe symptoms.

Any suggestions for infertility patients during this situation?

Infertility is a very stressful situation and is known as a life crisis for a couple. But going through infertility care shouldn’t be more stressful. But it is very challenging in the midst of Coronavirus. But Mannat Fertility is always here to help the couples in every step. We recommend couples to keep calm together and follow all the guidelines provided by the government to prevent the infection.
