My bf has HPV and I have had the gardasil vaccine. Is there any concerns I should have or anything I should know since we are currently ttc?

My bf has HPV and I have had the gardasil vaccine. Is there any concerns I should have or anything I should know since we are currently ttc?

None known: If you have had the full series of 3 hpv vaccines, you have a reasonable degree of protection (it is possible that you could have been exposed to hpv prior to your vaccines if you got them after you became sexually active).

That is expected: Vaccine is meant to prevent acquisition of HPV infections. So if you already have exposure to HPV before receiving the vaccine, then it is too late to have any benefit from the vaccine. But it is not any fault of the vaccine in that case! ...Read more

I think i only received two shots of the gardasil vaccine am i still protected against hpv?

I think i only received two shots of the gardasil vaccine am i still protected against hpv?

Probably not: The recommendation for gardisil is all three vaccines within 6 months. There are no studies to suggest you will be protected after only 2 shots. The good news is, you don't need to start over, even if the time for your 3rd shot has passed. Call your physician and make an appt for your final vaccine. Best of luck to you! ...Read more
