066: Can the COVID-19 vaccine affect my period?

As the COVID-19 vaccine rollout continues, more women report experiencing a change in their menstrual cycle after receiving their shot.

To better understand these abnormalities, Dr. Oakley will explain, and Holly shares her menstruation experience following her vaccine in this episode.
