Should I get the gardasil? I am married.

Should I get the gardasil? I am married.

Maybe, maybe not: Everyone is at risk for catching the hpv strains that Gardasil protects against. The amount of risk ranges from almost none to very high. A married person, where neither spouse has the viruses (hard to tell) and neither spouse will catch the virus from a 3rd person (even harder to tell), is at very low risk for catching it. He or she can get the vaccine for peace of mind, or just for protection. ...Read more

You : You have some protection from the first two shots and the third would boost that protection. If you are married and have only one sex partner, you will only be exposed to what (if anything) he carries. If he has latent infection with herpes or human pappiloma virus, you probably would have it by now anyway. ...Read more

Hard to say: There is evidence that the strains involved with genital warts differ from those that trigger cancer. If you received the Gardisil series before your exposure to the strains involved with both, you may avoid both.If your partner has a wart strain not in the vaccine, you may be at risk for warts, but there is also the possibility you have cross protective immunity and avoid it. ...Read more
