1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

Yes, but hpv has nothing to do wi cancer of the ovaries.
Hpv causes all cervical cancers and bulk of vaginal, vulvar and anal cancers as well as most head-and-neck cancs, non-melanoma skin cancers and many other problems. You should get this shot for both daughters and sons no matter what your history is!

In brief: Yes

Hpv vaccination is recommended for all women and men age 9-26.
Hpv infection is unrelated to a family history of ovarian cancer.
