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

Perscibed Gardasil for testing positive on combined HVPs, not 16&18. I am 26, married and planning on kids this year. Should I get it vaccinated?

Perscibed Gardasil for testing positive on combined HVPs, not 16&18. I am 26, married and planning on kids this year. Should I get it vaccinated?

Depends: The current Gardasil (2018) helps a person develop protection against 7 strains of HPV associated with cancer and 2 associated with warts. It does not treat HPV but can help you avoid the worst strains. You are near the end of the approved target age, so if you don't get it now, insurers may not cover the pricy cost. I consider it a good vaccine, but you must decide on your own. ...Read more

Yes: The recommendation is to get all three hpv vaccinations so you are protected from the most harmful hpv viruses. Please get the third dose so you will be protected. You don't know what the future will bring and it is best to be all the way protected! ...Read more

I received gardisel shots but the person I want to be with and get married got gential warts will it be dangerous for me in future as in getting cance

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

Why can't women over 26 get the gardasil shot?

May help, coverage?: The target group for the Gardasil shot are those never exposed to hpv, as early as 9yo. The benefit may remain for anyone at any age who is sexually active, but insurance plans may only cover age groups listed as the target groups by the cdc or council on immunization practices. The vaccine is expensive, in excess of $150/dose before it gets into my office so some balk at paying out of pocket. ...Read more

Depends: The vaccine is likely effective for anyone with a mature and competent immune system. Your listed age is 43, and that should apply. However, the original FDA approval was for age 9-26, and many health insurers will not cover this outside this age range. It is an expensive vaccine, requiring more than 20 years to develop and assemble the data to get FDA approval. ...Read more

The way it works: The pattern for the HPV vaccine was defined over more than 20 years of testing before it was approved for use. To get long term benefit (many years) you must get the 3 doses. After 1 dose, you may have some benefit for a year or so, the company didn't release that data but don't expect any long term benefit. ...Read more

What happens if you only get one gardasil shot and refuse the other two?

Partial protection: Because the research studies were done with 3 doses of Gardasil, it is not known how much antibody protection, and for how many years, a person would have with just one shot. There should be some protection. New studies are being done, especially for developing countries (due to the high cost of the vaccine), to see if just one or two doses are adequately protective. ...Read more

Timing issue: At a listed age of 29, you may have acquired the strains long before your present relationship and carried it asymptomatically.

Do you think I should get the gardasil vaccine?

Maybe, maybe not: Your age is listed as 49 and the target population for this vaccine is 9-26 yrs. Generating protective antibodies to the 4 strains in the vaccine is useful to those approaching the sexually active years, but of limited value to those already exposed. Insurers seldom cover it over 26 and it is an expensive series. I consider it a good vaccine with > 30 years of research behind it. Your call. ...Read more

If I received the first Gardasil vaccination before I was sexually active, should I get Gardasil 9 to be safe even though I am sexually active? I am abstinent at the moment and have been for over 3 years

If I received the first Gardasil vaccination before I was sexually active, should I get Gardasil 9 to be safe even though I am sexually active? I am abstinent at the moment and have been for over 3 years

Possibly, but: Gardasil 9 covers 5 HPV types not present in the Quadrivalent vaccine. These serotypes may account for 20% of cervical cancer. YOUR individual risk of getting cervical cancer from these 5 types is VERY low. The incidence of CIN 1-3 is about 5 out of 1000 pap tests. 20% x. 005 = A 1 in 1000 chance of your getting cervical cancer from these 5 serotypes. Gardasil 9 is approved up to age 26. ...Read more
