BANGKOK, June 1 (TNA) – The people who use hormonal contraceptives can be inoculated against COVID-19 without having to suspend the contraceptive use, the Royal Thai College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists said.
The college wrote on its website that hormonal contraceptives with estrogen content in the forms of pills, patches and injections posed more risks of blood clots in users compared with the same risks among the people who do not use the drugs.
However, the problem was rare among Thai women and happened less than what occurred among the pregnant women whose estrogen levels were naturally high, the college wrote.
Statistics on COVID-19 vaccinations among women in Thailand and around the world showed that the vaccinations did not increase blood clot risks. The users of all kinds of hormonal contraceptives could receive COVID-19 vaccines without having to suspend the use, the college wrote. (TNA)
