Sex after taking COVID vaccine? Safe?

Because you will not be able to perform as well as you can with burden on your mind. Also, what about attempting to conceive? Let us cut though the social media clutter and learn how to get it on in this post-COVID vaccine times.


Right off the bat, let’s get one thing straight. There has been no official guideline till the time of writing from any official authority like the Health ministry.

Thus, we are left to our own devices to figure out if engaging in sexual activity once we have taken the Corona vaccine is safe for us and safe for our partners.

Further, what about couples who are attempting to conceive?

See, to claim with any degree of confidence in such matters – whether unprotected sex is safe or not – requires lengthy trials and we all are (inadvertently) in a live trial of the vaccine right now. So, making claims at this point in time might be difficult.

Still, medical experts are claiming that everyone be on the safe side and have protected sex after receiving the second dose of the vaccine.

“The SARS-CoV2 is a novel virus and the vaccine developed to neutralise it. However, it is too early to say whether there are any long-term side effects of the vaccine and whether they affect a man and a woman if they have intercourse. Abstinence from sex may not be always possible for an inoculated person,” Dr Deepak Verma, internal medicine, Columbia Asia Hospital, Ghaziabad, told an Indian newspaper website.

The doctor continues that at present it is too early to comment what the effects will be of the virus and its antidote.

Thus, it appears that in the absence of any clarity, prevention is the best cure.

So for now everyone man out there, the doctor claims that “using a condom will be the best and most cost-effective prevention”.

For women, he claims that a gynaecologist be consulted before getting the vaccine.

All in all, there is no need at all to stop or even slow down your sexual activities, just be safe, and use a condom.

Though, this does mean a delay in those wanting and attempting to have a baby. Well, protection is what the doctor ordered and so you may have to wait a little bit on this one.
