    I haven’t read the data myself, just articles about it. It’s concerning to me, but my best friend’s mother is a prolife OB-GYN who participated in the vaccine trials and says she doesn’t see anything concerning. I would like to believe her but my views on medicine don’t typically line up with theirs anyway. It’s just hard to know what’s real.
    Either way the studies on fertility just haven’t been done yet, so it should not be given to women who want children.

    Yes! Well here and there… there is a lot they cannot know, simply because in the trials they specifically did not use anyone pregnant or even anyone that could possibly get pregnant or get someone pregnant…
    Not only does it say on the insert that it is not advised for pregnant/nursing women, you should also not be planning on getting pregnant. They also do not know if it will affect men’s sperm/if it’s transferrable?

    I also heard that it could look similar to ____?___ (I’m blanking on the name) that could cause the body to attack one’s placenta and not let it grow! Which would result in an inability to have children. I heard this on “Designed to Heal” podcast, and interview with Del Bigtree.”) IF this could happen, it would be irreversible.

    With the vigorous development of nanometer-sized materials, nanoproducts are becoming widely used in all aspects of life. In medicine, nanoparticles (NPs) can be used as nanoscopic drug carriers and for nanoimaging technologies. Thus, substantial attention has been paid to the potential risks of NPs. Previous studies have shown that numerous types of NPs are able to pass certain biological barriers and exert toxic effects on crucial organs, such as the brain, liver, and kidney. Only recently, attention has been directed toward the reproductive toxicity of nanomaterials. NPs can pass through the blood-testis barrier, placental barrier, and epithelial barrier, which protect reproductive tissues, and then accumulate in reproductive organs. NP accumulation damages organs (testis, epididymis, ovary, and uterus) by destroying Sertoli cells, Leydig cells, and germ cells, causing reproductive organ dysfunction that adversely affects sperm quality, quantity, morphology, and motility or reduces the number of mature oocytes and disrupts primary and secondary follicular development. In addition, NPs can disrupt the levels of secreted hormones, causing changes in sexual behavior. However, the current review primarily examines toxicological phenomena. The molecular mechanisms involved in NP toxicity to the reproductive system are not fully understood, but possible mechanisms include oxidative stress, apoptosis, inflammation, and genotoxicity. Previous studies have shown that NPs can increase inflammation, oxidative stress, and apoptosis and induce ROS, causing damage at the molecular and genetic levels which results in cytotoxicity. This review provides an understanding of the applications and toxicological effects of NPs on the reproductive system.”
