COVID-19 has resulted biological, psychological, and economic vulnerability on women's reproduction. During the pandemic, women undergoing reproductive functions can not afford sufficient nutritional needs. At the same time, they also do not receive adequate accommodation support during self-isolation. This study aims to complement the existing studies by focusing on three things; First, what the form of vulnerability of the female reproductive process during the pandemic is. Second, what factors cause the vulnerability of women's reproductive processes during the pandemic. Third, what the implications of the vulnerability of women's reproductive functions to reproductive health are. This study uses exploratory qualitative research based on primary and secondary data. Primary data were obtained through in-depth interviews with policy makers, survivors, health workers and COVID-19 volunteers in Semarang. Secondary data was obtained through statistical data from the Health Service, COVID-19 Task Force, BNPB, shelter houses, health centers and online news. The results of this study are not only able to objectively map the vulnerability of women during the reproductive period during a pandemic, but also provide information on the needs of women's reproductive groups during a pandemic. In addition, this study provides input for policy makers to carry out affirmative action in handling women undergoing the reproductive process during the COVID-19 pandemic
