If a person is lesbian, does she need cervical cancer jab?

If a person is lesbian, does she need cervical cancer jab?

Yes.: Cervical cancer is most commonly caused by infection with human papilloma virus (hpv). Hpv can be transmitted sexually from skin to skin contact between two women. I believe the "cervical cancer jab" you are referring to is gardasil, which is a vaccine against high-risk types of hpv that can cause cervical cancer, and women who have sex with women should receive the vaccine. ...Read more

If your a teenage girl and u got the cervical cancer shot is it guaranteed you wont get the disease?

Has good protection: Vaccines offer good protection against some very bad diseases. Of course, there are no guarantees in life. As the saying goes, the only certainties are "death and taxes". There is generally no reason for a teen girl not to get the human papilloma virus vaccine (gardasil) to protect her against cervical cancer and genital warts.

If a woman has an abnormal pap from HPV then why does the man not get treated?

If a woman has an abnormal pap from HPV then why does the man not get treated?

It's not treatable: Excellent question, and subtle. The man's hpv usually doesn't produce a lesion that can be excised, and the hpv itself cannot be removed from either partner -- just the precancer / cancer. Once you have met a particular strain of hpv, it's there for life. This is in contrast to chlamydia and trichomonas, in which it's good to treat both partners in a current relationship at the same time. ...Read more
