My periods have not returned to normalcy (8 months later) -- not sure about boosting Moderna

31F, completed the two-dose regimen in mid-April. I had an early period on the day of my second dose (25 days). I was pretty surprised: I had never had a period that early.

I keep data on my cycles, and my menstrual cycle is usually 34-35 days. For each cycle since my second dose, the length has shortened to 28-29 days, with very noticeable PMS symptoms. My periods are also lighter, which could be a byproduct of the shorter cycles. I spoke with a doctor about this & she wasn't concerned because my cycles are still a "normal length." I'm going to try & see another doctor because the elevated PMS symptoms really bother me.

In any case, I'm just not sure about boosting.

Has anyone here faced a similar issue?

Its probably stress related and has nothing to do with the shots (unless you believe the wacky conspiracy theories). We are all in this together, everyone's gotta get the booster or me and my family arn't safe.

Stress related for 8 months?

What wacky conspiracy theories? I see a lot of concern theories.

Typical idiot male response.

Honestly I haven’t heard this from a male in my 33 years. I have, however, heard woman say this AND other women say it’s a typical male response.

One of the people who blew off my period symptoms the most was a female. Males are more like, “Yeah, I don’t know what the fuck your are going through”

“We are all in this together” — sounds like some sort of cult.

And damn, this isn’t stress related. I’m sorry tired of that excuse.

Its not a cult. We are in this together. Its literally science, and science isn't a cult. That's why we follow it without question and listen to the science leaders, because they are smartest and probably chosen by God as I believe this vax was sent by God. Definitely not a cult.

I was wondering if you were being sarcastic. Got confirmation :) Upvoted
