There is no scientific evidence linking past Covid infection to infertility or miscarriage. Unfortunately, there is a lot of online misinformation circulating by unscrupulous people. Covid infection during pregnancy can increase the rate of preterm labor and severe disease. Get vaccinated as soon as possible. Good luck on your future pregnancy.
