Can I masturbate after getting the HPV vaccine?

Can I masturbate after getting the HPV vaccine?

Absolutely: Receiving an hpv vaccine has absolutely nothing to do with you pleasuring yourself by masturbating. Totally separate and unrelated. Masturbate if you want to and don't masturbate if you don't want to.

Should I worry about getting the hpv vaccine? Any vaccines a person should get whose 20 and has no spleen? Thanks

Should I worry about getting the hpv vaccine? Any vaccines a person should get whose 20 and has no spleen? Thanks

Get vaccinated!: The HPV vaccines are entirely without signficant side effects. Having no spleen in theory can increase risks of certain infections, maybe including vaccines that have live virus. But HPV vaccine doesn't have live virus. It will only protect you against HPV, without any signficant side effects. For sure get vaccinated! Good luck.

Is it safe to get the HPV vaccine if you have hpv?

Is it safe to get the HPV vaccine if you have hpv?

Safe/yes: The newer Gardasil HPV vaccine helps protect against 9 strains of HPV, 2 related to genital warts and 7 associated with cervical cancer. It is doubtful you would have had past infections with all these strains. Your doc may know which strains you have acquired. The vaccine would not hurt you & would not treat or effect your prior HPV. It could help prevent these other strains.

If my system is weak, will I get HPV from the HPV vaccine?

Inactivated vaccines: Such as the HPV vaccine, do not contain whole or live viruses and cannot produce the natural disease in an immunocompromised person. A more likely scenario would be poor immune response to the vaccine and ineffective protection from getting the disease via the usual ways.

Why is it that 27 older males can not get preventive HPV vaccine?

Why is it that 27 older males can not get preventive HPV vaccine?

Insurance contract: A person may benefit from this vaccine at any age. However, the series is expensive (raw cost running ~$200/dose x 3) and most insurance contracts are written with language that only covers vaccines for their fda approved age range. That range reflects expensive research data on test groups. You can pay out of pocket, but insurers only cover the target age group.

I am 26 years and 4 months old can I get benefit by taking HPV vaccine or I am too late?

I am 26 years and 4 months old can I get benefit by taking HPV vaccine or I am too late?

HPV Never too old: You may have to pay for it. But, the hpv vaccine is vital for any sexually active adult. Even if you are already infected with hpv there is enough evidence that this vaccine provides some protection that every single person who is or will be sexual should have it.

Who should get the HPV vaccine?

Most people: It is currently approved and recommended for men and women ages 9-26. The chances of catching hpv the first time you have sex is almost 50% if your partner is not a virgin so it's best to get the hpv vaccine before you become sexually active.

Who all must get the HPV vaccine?

Recommend ages 11-26: Hpv vaccine is recommended for all children at age 11 or 12 but is approved for use from 9-26 in both sexes. It's recommended for all girls through age 26 and for boys through 21 years of age (through age 26 for men who have sex with men). There are two vaccines. Both reduce the risk of cervical and anal cancer but the Gardasil also protects against two strains causing 90% of genital warts.
