If I have HPV that causes abnormal cell changes can I pass HPV to my partner?

Can the HPV (cervical cancer) jab hurt that you get in year 8?

Can the HPV (cervical cancer) jab hurt that you get in year 8?

? hurt ?: All shots hurt some & this does a more than average. Although the testing and approval for this vaccine was age 9-26, I see no reason to believe that getting it a year early would "hurt" the immune response it is designed to create. It would likely be effective if given to any kid with a normal immune system over the age of 4. ...Read more

It is unlikely that that would happen and if that woman was having annual exams and paps as recommended the problem could be detected and treated to prevent cancer altogether. ...Read more
