I turn 27 years old tomorrow. I contacted the HPV virus two years ago and was treated. Should I go get the HPV vaccine or is it too late?

I turn 27 years old tomorrow. I contacted the HPV virus two years ago and was treated. Should I go get the HPV vaccine or is it too late?

Gardasil indications: Merck, the vaccine manufacturer, recommends vaccination for people age 9-26 for prevention of some of the strains of HPV that cause genital warts and certain cancers. It will not treat the infection if it has already been transmitted, but may offer protection from getting infected with other strains.

If I have a high risk of cancer since it runs in my family should I get the HPV vaccine or is that just for the STD virus?

If I have a high risk of cancer since it runs in my family should I get the HPV vaccine or is that just for the STD virus?

Get vaccinated: Even with your family history, you're probably not at increased risk of HPV-related cancers. But all people should get the vaccine that prevents 4 of the genital HPV types, especially at your age, regardless of apparent risk. The frequency of genital HPV and HPV-related cancers is the same in people with very few and very many sex partners. Why take any risk when it's so easily prevented?

Is the HPV vaccine really more effective before a female is sexually active?

Is the HPV vaccine really more effective before a female is sexually active?

Yes!: Well, is the measles shot better to get before you get measles? Of course! that is how vaccines work! they prevent infection, not treat infections you already have. The problem is, that about 40% of women will acquire hpv withint two years of sexual activity debut! get the shot for your kids before they are old enough to think about sex, not when you think they need it. By then, it may late!

If one has HPV vaccine, can one still contract STI or STD?

If one has HPV vaccine, can one still contract STI or STD?

Yes indeed: There are around 10 common STD bacteria and viruses, plus about 20 less common. HPV is only one type of STD, and the two available HPV vaccines cover only 2 or 4 of over 100 HPV types. After an HPV vaccine, a person can still be infected with all the other STDs, like gonorrhea, chlamydia, herpes, syphilis, herpes, and HIV (the AIDS virus). FYI, there is no different meaning between STD and STI.

Is it true that the HPV vaccine is barely effective and that the chances of preventing you from getting cancer are low? Is there any study that proves that?

Is it true that the HPV vaccine is barely effective and that the chances of preventing you from getting cancer are low? Is there any study that proves that?

Absolutely not true!: Studies show that when HPV vaccine is given to women who have never been exposed to the HPV virus, they were nearly completely protected against the HPV Genotypes 16 and 18 which are responsible for 80% of cervical cancers worldwide. The protection lasted up to 8.5 years. **Gardasil also protects against genital/anal warts and protects against cancers of the vagina,vulva,throat,tongue and anus.

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.
