Why is it important?

It’s important to study how COVID-19 vaccines might affect women’s periods because it helps us understand any potential side effects and ensures that vaccines are safe for everyone.


This research targets Jordanian women. Middle Eastern women are often underrepresented in scientific literature, including studies on healthcare and vaccine effects. This lack of representation can lead to gaps in our understanding of how medical interventions, such as vaccines, affect this population specifically. Therefore, efforts to address underrepresentation and encourage diversity in research are crucial for advancing our understanding of health-related issues and improving healthcare outcomes for all communities.
