Is it normal to have late period when having a gardasil shot?

Is it normal to have late period when having a gardasil shot?

No relationship: Just because the Gardasil shot prevents infection by viruses that cause genital warts and some cervical cancers doesn't mean Gardasil has any effects on menstrual periods, PMS, sex, pregnancy, etc... The vaccine has no relationship to menstrual periods. The shot is given in the arm, and the antibodies are made by the immune system to offer protection throughout the body, not just at the genitals. ...Read more

I got a cortisone shot about 8weeks ago late period, possibly pregnant!?

I got a cortisone shot about 8weeks ago late period, possibly pregnant!?

Get pregnancy test: If you think there is a chance you are pregnant then, the only way to know for sure is to get a test done on the date of your next missed cycle. It is possible that a steroid shot could've altered your period coming down but if you had sex during your fertile days (Or during any time during your cycle) then, that is significant and should be the impetus for you to take the test. ...Read more

I had HPV shot, it made my period a week late. Now its been a week and my period is still on I've never had a late period and it normally lasts 3 days?

I had HPV shot, it made my period a week late. Now its been a week and my period is still on I've never had a late period and it normally lasts 3 days?

No relation: The hpv vaccine, (gardisil and cervarix), do not affect your period. You are having dysfunctional uterine bleeding for another reason. At your age, this is not typically anything bad. That being said, if your abnormal bleeding persists, call your gyn and make an appointment to be evaluated. Best of luck. ...Read more

Late period by 2 weeks, haven't had sex since January. Stopped th shot, periods every 15 days and now I missed it. Took a preg test, negative. Why no period?

Late period by 2 weeks, haven't had sex since January. Stopped th shot, periods every 15 days and now I missed it. Took a preg test, negative. Why no period?

Progesterone: From the information given, you stopped the depo shot. Progesterone takes up to 12 months to clear. As you recall, abnormal bleeding, bleeding every day or no bleeding at all or anything in between is entirely normal for progesterone only contraception. As the progesterone clears your system, your bleeding pattern will improve, however, until it clears abnormal bleeding will still occur. ...Read more
