In brief: Category B

The fda grades the risk involved with any medication exposure during pregnancy from a(no risk) to d (risk seen) and x never ever use.
Gardasil is rated a b , indicating that no specific issues are known & animal studies show no problems but not enough data on human experience is available to give it an a. Those found pregnant after starting the series should defer completion until after delivery.
