I really like your article for many reasons:

- It is not sensationalistic

- It is exploratory

- It does not force conclusions on us

- You are obviously a deep thinker

It is possible that vaccination causes a drop in fertility and it would be TEMPORARY for those women whose menstrual cycles are disrupted temporarily.

However, my own articles on the topic elicited personal comments that many women's periods were disrupted permanently. Those are possibly infertile forever.

It is completely unclear what is happening with male sperm due to reduced volume and motility.

mRNA particles targeting ovaries, possibly target them for a reason.

My own opinion is that we have a mix of temporary and permanent effects.

I tried not to get too deeply into the mechanics of conception because for me, it is easy to say something wrong and be targeted by fact checkers. But you are absolutely right to dig deeper and I admire your efforts.

I just subscribed to your substack and let me know if you come up with anything else.

Re: your hypothesis that vaccine causes easrly miscarriages or failure of the egg to attach. It is possible, but it could logically cause later miscarriages too. It is a very interesting hypothesis that CANNOT yet be dismissed.

Also, do not forget the abortions angle, abortions represent unintended pregnancies and are not affected by "social pessimism".

Just read this Israeli study of sperm donors.


TL;DR male fertility is effected by the vax, but after 145 days are back to normal. It will be interesting to see if we can see this pattern in the birth data over time.

My theory (and it would be a testable hypothesis if someone had access to fertility data from a site like Fertility Friend): something about the vax causes a short luteal phase. Average luteal phase (the time between ovulation and the start of your next cycle) is about 14 days. Anything under 11 can be a cause of infertility-- too short and there's just not time for an embryo to implant properly, and likely means that hormone levels are just too low anyway.


And it's an open question whether a woman has to be vaccinated, or just *be around* people who were, to get this effect. I kept seeing comments from women who'd had weird menstrual issues after *someone else* in their household got vaxd, so just for kicks I went back through my own symptothermal charts for the stretch of time when my husband got the shot (the date is on his vax card, so I know exactly when that happened). Mid-cycle when he got the shot. That cycle looked normal. But the *next* full cycle after he was vaxd had a luteal phase of 5-6 days, which almost never happens. I run 9-11 days typically. I was not sick, and it hasn't happened again in the year+ since.

There's not much anybody can do with a sample size of 1, so (shrugs). But if we'd been trying, we would not have been able to get pregnant that month. If you multiply that by like 80% of the childbearing-age population... I can see where there might be a drop in births after 9 months. Add in boosters and you can keep it going a while even if the effect is temporary. AND if it's a shedding effect (i.e. secondhand exposure like me) then it wouldn't matter if *you* were boosted, so long as people around you were-- which might drag things out very significantly, for as long as people keep getting boosted and aren't segregated from young women. I mean, I haven't had any further incidents, BUT my husband hasn't gotten any additional shots, nobody else in my family is vaxd, and I'm practically a hermit. I would love to compare notes with other ladies who've been charting through this last couple of years, and see if anyone else is seeing this, particularly if they have more contact with vaxd people.

I've noticed that the UK is trying to slow roll their data, though if you look at some of their secondary data like smoking during pregnancy etc you see a roughly 10% drop in the most recent quarter.

I would say, there are two types of miscarriages: those happening before the first visit to the gynaecologist, and those happening after that first visit. The former might remain unnoticed in many cases, and there's not much hope for investigation. The latter are interesting because the gynaecologist would surely leave a trace in form of an ICD code (something like this: https://www.icd10data.com/ICD10CM/Codes/O00-O9A/O00-O08/O03-/O03.9). As with vaccination injuries, the data collected by the health insurance companies might be key. All we need are incentives for them to publish the data...

Early miscarriages could explain it. But also postponed pregnancies or fewer marriages. Interesting Swiss analysis: https://swprs.org/birth-rates-vaccinations-marriages/

Very early miscarriages is the strategy used by several decades of experiments with anti-fertility vaccines. The body is trained to attack either an element of the new conception itself, or a necessary hormone required to maintain the pregnancy. According to protein analyses, the spike has a large selection of reproductive peptides and common immunogenic epitopes that have historically been used in combination to train anti-fertility antibodies.


The protective barriers to the gonads, like that of the brain, are bypassed by the spike and its delivery vehicles. Local inflammation and coagulation are also enough to terminate a new pregnancy.
