Risks? Benefits? Contraindications? Or just bad information and unjustified alarms? The Covid vaccine in pregnancy causes discussion. The Istituto Superiore di Sanità reiterates that there are no problems for the unborn child, regardless of the stage of pregnancy (ie at the beginning or at an advanced stage).
The Society of Gynecology and Obstetrics (SIGO-AOGOI-AGUI-AGITE) bring to public and institutional attention the moment of great confusion and very little information that women experience for everything related to the reproductive event and the anti Covid vaccination.
Gynecologists and obstetricians recalled that: – pregnancy is not a contraindication to vaccination – reproductive desire or the search for pregnancy are not a contraindication to vaccination – breastfeeding is not a contraindication to vaccination – hormonal contraception is not a contraindication to vaccination – there are no preliminary investigations or therapies to be practiced before vaccination in any of these situations – pregnant women should be advised to vaccinate more carefully compared to non-pregnant women of the same age, because pregnancy is a fragile condition.
Despite our positions, declares the Prof. Antonio Chiantera President SIGO, we receive daily solicitations from confused women, who have had the most disparate information, often not corresponding absolutely to the truth. The professor. Nicola Colacurci AGUI President, appeals to the Minister of Health Roberto Speranza to acknowledge the requests and take an active part, with the Ministry of Health, in a campaign of correct information that reassures women of reproductive age towards anti-Covid vaccination. The AOGOI President concludes Dr. Elsa Viora stating that: keeping women in a confusional state on this topic represents a major deterrent to the birth rate and pushes couples who would like to have children to postpone this event, thus making the problem “empty cradles” which represents the greatest social problem of the our country.
