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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Can I still get HPV vaccine eventho I'm already 25yrs old?? coz I want to.

Get started: This was approved in the US for ages 9-26 but is likely a benefit to any sexually active person. In the US it is rarely covered by insurers after 26 & I have no idea how it is covered in Canada. It is expensive here, more than US $200 /dose to the provider. Today the 9 strain Gardisil is available which covers more HPV strains than the earlier vaccines. ...Read more

Can you still get the HPV vaccine after age 26 in united states? Turning 26 sunday....

Yes, but: You may actually benefit from the vaccine at any age beyond childhood. However, the 20+years it took to develop the vaccine and the rigorous standards it had to meet before approval meant a significant development cost goes into each dose. Many insurance carriers will only cover the cost if given during the specified ages that are part of the fda approval (up to 26). Check before you ask for it. ...Read more

Hi, does it make sense for a woman in her 20s to get an HPV vaccine if she's never had one?

Hi, does it make sense for a woman in her 20s to get an HPV vaccine if she's never had one?

You think about it: The newer 9 strain HPV vaccine helps avoid infection with 2 wart strains and 7 known to be associated with cervical and other cancers. These are passed sexually, often by persons with no symptoms or knowledge that they are infected. Once infected, they can hang around in your system for decades before cancer may develop. This is one way to try to avoid a form of cancer, and associated treatments. ...Read more

Should I get an HPV vaccine even if I might have HPV I have never broken out but my ex has it?

Yes, definitely: Assuming, of course, that you are under age 26, you should definitely get it even if you might have it from contact with your ex. There are different strains of hpv, some cause pre-cancer some don't, but you definitely can be vaccinated against the strains that you might not already have come in contact with. Don't hesitate, as definitely worth the benefit. ...Read more

Can I still request to get the HPV vaccine after age 26? I don't see how it would suddenly not work after age 26

Can I still request to get the HPV vaccine after age 26? I don't see how it would suddenly not work after age 26

Yes: Vaccines and medications have age ranges that are approved by the FDA (government). The age ranges are based on the research studies, which means the effects of getting Gardasil vaccine after age 26 are less known, unknown, less safe, etc... A person can always request a vaccine, and many doctors will say NO, but some will say YES. It would be "off label", so it would be self-pay (not insurance). ...Read more

I took one out of three shots of the HPV vaccine and I want to know what would happen if I never get the other to shots?

Loss of benefit: Consider any benefit you may have received with the first dose to be totally gone within 2-4 years. Your system goes back to the way it was before. You can return to getting and carrying strains of a virus you will never know you have and passing it to your partners who can develop various forms of cancer. You might be unlucky and eventually develop a rare cancer yourself. ...Read more

I read in the Men’s Health that it’s wise to get the HPV vaccine as a male 26 or under. I’m going to be 27 in less than 2 months. Is it too late?

I read in the Men’s Health that it’s wise to get the HPV vaccine as a male 26 or under. I’m going to be 27 in less than 2 months. Is it too late?

Not too late: A person can discuss with his doctor about his level of risk and whether or not the vaccine would make good sense to get. Usually, if a person is having new contacts (HPV is usually caught via physical contact of the genitals or the mouth), the vaccine is a good idea. Above age 26 years, insurance companies in the US might not pay for it (vaccine becomes a self-pay item). ...Read more
