If there is no way to obtain this information as described, i'd advise getting those shots. ...Read more

Thank : Thank you for choosing to serve in the navy and congratulations. The best way to minimize the discomfort from injections is to be as relaxed as possible. Tense muscles tend to cause more discomfort. Take several deep breaths and when the injection is being made, exhale as forcibly as possible. Afterwards use a little ice and motrin. Good luck in boot camp g. Joel funari, capt usn ret. ...Read more

Got my vaccine Cervarix though I have HPV-16. Will it ever work to protect me from cancer? Was getting the 3 shots a waste of time & money? Or not?!

Got my vaccine Cervarix though I have HPV-16. Will it ever work to protect me from cancer? Was getting the 3 shots a waste of time & money? Or not?!

Not known. No. Not.: Cervarix vaccine helps protect against catching HPV strains 16 and 18. If a person already caught HPV 16, it is not known if the vaccine can decrease one's chance of cancer from HPV 16 (for now, presume it does not help). However, the vaccine will help prevent getting HPV 18, which causes about 20% of cervical cancers. Thus, getting the vaccine is still a good thing to do. ...Read more
