I'm just wondering, if you are pregnant, can you get a ovary cancer vaccination?

Confusing question: I am not aware of any ovarian cancer vaccination. There is 2 for strains of hpv that are a cause of cervical cancer.It contains no live virus but the 3 dose series is not recommended during pregnancy.If the series is started and someone realizes they are pregnant, the rest of the series is delayed until after delivery. This is more out of caution than a specific issue with the vaccine. ...Read more

Hello,
I am 21 year old girl! Before one year I had spontaneous abortion. after that my gyn. saw some cyst on left ovary! first was cyst, then cancer!

If your a teenage girl and u got the cervical cancer shot is it guaranteed you wont get the disease?

Has good protection: Vaccines offer good protection against some very bad diseases. Of course, there are no guarantees in life. As the saying goes, the only certainties are "death and taxes".

Too many people have the hpv virus, so protection is a good thing. ...Read more
