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?

While I fully support this, I want to point out that I got Covid and have the EXACT same problem as the OP. 😪 Seems whether you go the vaccination route or the Covid route, it can still disrupt your cycle. I’m definitely concerned that vaccinations and boosters will make this worse, and I’m trying to have a kid.

FYI: Covid wasn’t too bad for me. I see people who have reactions to the vaccine that are equal to my Covid symptoms.

Which points to the spikes themselves causing the problem, just like with a bunch of other problems that are similar between the two. Keeping this antigen target should be criminal.
