Generally, yes. the: virus eventually clears up. However, the damage to the cells on the cervix in particular can be long-lasting and may eventually evolve in cervical cancer.

In my opinion, there is no downside except cost as insurance companies in my state do not cover Gardasil over the age of 26. ...Read more

I received the HPV shots back in High School. Does that mean I cannot get the virus? My doctor is afraid I might have it in my throat.

Not exactly: There are over 40 different types of HPV virus. The Cervarix vaccine is a vaccine against HPV types 16 & 18. The Gardasil vaccine is a vaccine against HPV types 6, 11, 16, & 18. These were chosen because 16 & 18 are the most common cause of Cervical Cancer while 6 and 11 are the most common cause of genital warts. The vaccine doesn't protect against the less common types. Best wishes. ...Read more
