How COVID-19 affects women's reproductive health

When it comes to getting vaccinated against COVID-19, there's one particular group out there who have been questioning whether or not they should get it: women who are either planning to or actively trying to start a family. These women and their families want to know more about how COVID-19 and vaccines actually impact a woman's reproductive health to help them make informed decisions that are right for them.

To help us all better understand this area, Prof Emma Duncan, will be joined by Prof Laura Magee, a leading women's health expert to discuss everything about how the virus interacts with aspects of women's health including fertility, pregnancy, babies and their first few months, and what role COVID vaccines have to play.
