i'm currently being vax'd for it. I had a dysplasia scare a while ago now. I see it as a break thru as it is a shot to prevent the majority of HPV strains that causes cancer. Futhermore, MOST people will get HPV during their lifetimes, so it's not an uncommon thing. The general public is just really uneducated about it. I'd recommend it as there's not many things worse than cancer.

This is a vaccine to prevent cervical cancer in women. I know they recommend it for younger women over older women. The vaccine is so new - I think they have a lot of information out yet on counterindications.

There are many side effects in vaccine. Like Anti TB vaccine that they do to childrens now, look many children have TB now. Maybe they do this for business.
