Cervical Cancer Jab

MMR Measles, Mumps and Rubella immunisationMany people are still concerned about issuing their children with the MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella) vaccine. The main reason why people felt scared is because they felt that there was a correlation to the amount of children having the MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella) vaccine and the amount of increased children who were diagnosed with Autism or ASD. Even if this was not the cause it certainly caused enough concern for parents up and down the United Kingdom. This article is aimed at exploring the alternative viewpoints relating to an increase in Autism and ASD at the time. The article will explore if it was possible that the MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella) had anything to do with it, or was this solely coincidence. The article will then conclude by informing you on where you can find more information on the MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella) vaccine.MMR and autism was there ever a link?There is no straightforward answer to this question and the reason for that is that it is down to a very high set of variables that cause the information to take a while to gather. When dealing with putting lives at risk, the research has to be conclusive in order for it to get published. Even if we know the answers, medical research can take decades to produce. This said it is only when there is definitive proof that the results for MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella) vaccine and the link to autism can be conclusive.There is however other angles that needs to be explored, some of these angles links other contributing factor to the increase in Autism over the past few decades. Some of these reasons include:Average age of women having children has increased and more and more women are having children in their 30 s. the older you are the greater the chances of having children with autism, this is one explanation for the increase.We now have better screening processes.As you can see there are other factors other than the MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella) vaccine.

  1. QUESTION:
    should i get the cervical cancer jab?
    im 15 and my mum is determined for me to get the cervical cancer jab after what happened to jade goody she has been talking to the doctor too and she has agreed to do it for me when ever i have a huge fear a needles and i know this should be the least of my worries but i have refused to get it. but recently i have been thinking that i should just get it done because it will stop me from getting this cancer and i read too that cervical cancer is mostly detected when its in mid stage so its hard to cure. has anyone had this jab? i know theres like 3 different injections can you get it done when im on my period? oh and by the way i live in ireland so it will cost my mum A lot of money which i think is ridiculous as its free in england. the government is so fucked up. give me some advice please.:) thanks.
    what if i already have hpv? is there a point in getting the injection then?how do i know if i have hpv?

    • ANSWER:
      Cervical cancer is malignant neoplasm of the cervix uteri or cervical area. It may present with vaginal bleeding but symptoms may be absent until the cancer is in its advanced stages.[1] Treatment consists of surgery (including local excision) in early stages and chemotherapy and radiotherapy in advanced stages of the disease.

      Girls should get cervical cancer jab, says EU
      The vaccine against the sexually transmitted virus that causes the most cases of cervical cancer is cost-effective and should be given to adolescent girls before they start having sex, an EU agency said on Tuesday.

      Merck's Gardasil and GlaxoSmithKline's Cervarix vaccines could best help reduce cervical cancer when used with cervical cancer screening programmes, says a report by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.

  2. QUESTION:
    cervical cancer jab ?
    i have some questions about the jab, i would be very grateful if you could help me:

    1. what is your opinion of the jab?
    2. if you had the jab did you have any side effects?

    anything you can add really about the jab would be very helpful to me.

    • ANSWER:
      well first of all the jab is fine! i am a fainter so anything with blood or gore makes me feel dizzy and i pass out so i was worried about the jab, but the truth is don't work yourself into a state, you sit down and the lady talks to you (i suggest look away after this) and mid sentence the lady jabs you, when it happens its fine doesn't hurt what so ever unless you are majorly muscular. after the jab you have a bit of cotton wool pressed up to the cut and you wait 5 mins before going back to class, after a while your arm feels numb and hurts a bit, like really achey but isn't that bad just feels like you have a bad arm. :) its fine don't worry i have had my jab and was so proud of myself after think about it like this if jade goody and thousands of other women had have had this jab then they may have recovered from it hope this helped p.s my second one is soon :D

  3. QUESTION:
    Do they inject cancer in the cervical cancer jab?:?
    1. do they inject cancer in the jab?
    2. does it hurt?
    3. where can i find out more

    REPLY ASAP

    • ANSWER:
      The "cervical cancer jab" (Gardasil) protects you from 4 different types of HPV (human papillomavirus).

      Types 16 and 17 cause 70% of all cervical cancer cases.
      Types 6 and 11 cause 90% of all genital warts cases.

      There are at least 30 different types of HPV that can be transmitted sexually, so Gardasil does NOT offer 100% protection from cancer or genital warts.

      HPV can also cause cancer of the head, neck, and throat if a woman (or a man) is infected with it after performing oral sex on a man. It can also cause anal cancer in both men and women.

      The FDA has just approved the Gardasil vaccination for men and boys. Obviously, they can't get cervical cancer, but they can get genital warts and head/neck/throat/anal cancer.

      HPV doesn't hurt any more than any other type of vaccinations. Like all vaccinations, there's risks associated with it. Your best source for information on the risks is your physician.

      Try the manufacturer's website at http://www.gardasil.com/.

  4. QUESTION:
    cervical cancer jabs?
    Apparently I was meant to have my Cervical Cancer jab in September. I'm in Year 8 and am a girl, all of my friends outside of my own school said that they have already had the jab, but I haven't. Our school hasn't said anything either. I'm worried! Someone said that its a 60% chance that you could die if you don't get the jab but I'm not entirely sure about how true that is, I'm worried! Please answer ASAP!

    • ANSWER:
      The people who are saying the shot is dangerous have political or religious motives that have nothing to do with safety. They are lying to you in order to push an agenda. I will tell you that there is a 100% chance you will die at some point, after all we all do it, though there is virtually no chance that you will die because you got the shot. There is a much higher chance you will die if you don't get the shot, since 4,000 women a year in the US die from cervical cancer.

      I am a guy and I developed head and neck cancer due to HPV exposure. I have met several others with the same diagnosis. I went through 3 rounds of chemotherapy and had 39 daily radiation treatments. Through radiation, I lost my taste buds and I stopped producing saliva. I did not eat solid food for 4 months and needed a feeding tube to stay alive. 8 months after treatment and there are still things I can't eat because they are too dry or taste bad - these are foods I used to love. Enduring radiation was the most difficult thing I have done in my life. I lost 40 pounds in about a month because I basically stopped eating.

      Girls get cervical cancer and can pass the HPV on to boyfriends through sexual AND non-sexual contact, and girls can get it from boys. The vaccine is safe and effective. With the vaccine now available, no one should be at an elevated risk from HPV. My daughter got it and if I had sons, they would get it as well, even if insurance did not pay for it.

      One of my oncologists (I had 3) told me of a patient as I was well into recovery who did not make it. He had head and neck cancer from HPV and he was not yet 20. It hit him fast and was very aggressive. By the time they found it, it had spread too far in his body. Do you think he would have wished whomever he got it from had been vaccinated.

      Get the vaccine. Get it before you start kissing boys. That may be at 10, 15, or 30, but french kissing is a potential infection pathway. You probably will not know if your partner has it. I never had any symptoms. Do you want to almost eliminate the risk of developing a form of cancer that hits 12,000 women a year and kills 4,000?

  5. QUESTION:
    Cervical cancer jab.....?
    i'm 14 female and I have had sex... Is there any point in having a cervical cancer jab or is it pointless? Will it help?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, it will help. Because you have had sex does not yet mean you have contracted the either of the 2 specific strains of HPV that causes cervical cancer. We also know that at least 2 of the non-cancer strains of the virus that the vaccine gives protection for you have not yet been exposed to or you would be already experiencing an episode of genital warts. That alone would make it a benefit to obtain the "jab".

      Lets say that you already have one of two strains that cause cervical cancer. Research has shown that older females past the age of 26 who have active viral infections and also got the vaccine had those flareups resolved much quicker and cervical tissue returned to a non-inflamed state. If it helps older women already infected then it will also help younger ones who are infected prior to vaccination.

      Bottom line here is that even though you might already be infected, the vaccine Gardisil for HPV increases your body's natural defense against allowing the damage to go unchecked. The evidence of this is so compelling that manufacturer MSD is seeking to update their indications to allow vaccines for ages up to 46 yrs. I would highly advise that you get vaccinated and get protected.

      Look at this:
      http://cervicalcancer.about.com/od/riskf...

      Gardasil May Be Effective in Older Women

      ......."A 2007 study conducted by the pharmaceutical company Merck shows that the HPV vaccine Gardasil may be effective at preventing HPV in women up to age 45. Currently, Gardasil is only approved for use in females age 9 through 26.

      Approximately 3,800 women age 24 to 45 participated in the study; two thirds were not infected with any of the targeted HPV strains, while one third were infected with at least one strain. Half were immunized with the recommended three doses of Gardasil, while the remaining half of women were given a placebo. The women were followed for 20 months.

      Merck reported a 91% reduction of persistent infection, low-grade cervical abnormalities, cervical pre-cancers, and external genital lesions caused by the four strains of HPV that the vaccine protects against.".

      The next real health care push should be to vaccinate males of the same age group. It really is more difficult to stop transmission when half of the population is left out of the equation especially since they tend to have more sexual partners than women. This may happen shortly too.

  6. QUESTION:
    Cervical cancer jab for girls?
    Parents of daughters. Are you going to let her have this jab? Why is this jab being introduced, is there a cervical cancer epidemic? Does anyone else have doubts?
    I'm sooo glad you guys know where I'm coming from. My daughter is just 12 and I don't want her to have the jab. It seems pointless to me. I understand the reasoning behind MMR, three things kids easily catch, but not this cancer jab. My mum was offered the Thalidimyde drug back in the 60's and thankfully turned it down. I don't think we know enough about the long term affects of this jab, and I'm hearing of really awful immediate affects like the ones described here.

    • ANSWER:
      I don't have kids but this jab seems strangely pointless to me.

      There have been known reports of school girls who have died, been paralysed, had severe allergic reactions etc to a drug called Gardasil in the jab.

      It stops a known 2 causes of Cervical Cancer out of 15 through contracting HPV, in my honest opinion, that's not enough for what some people have gone through. Make sure that you are with the right person (STI wise) and that you take the right precautions.

      There are other ways of getting Cervical Cancer and even if you do become immune to it, what about breast, lung, throat, mouth, stomach cancer?

      It's over hyped. I'm keeping my options open for a better drug. Call me stupid but whatever, makes sense to me. I'd rather risk myself with Cancer that get seriously ill from a jab.

  7. QUESTION:
    should i take the cervical cancer jab?
    Plz answer truthfully as i need to know more about the jab
    i know they do not know the side effects and so on but help?
    I am also quite scared of injections

    • ANSWER:
      They ARE still studying the side effects, but the people who get a major side effect (more than pain at the site or swelling and redness) are only about 1% - it is the same as any other vaccination.
      The help it can give you in preventing HPV - which causes around 60% of cervical cancer - is much better than the small risk you take in getting the shot. Honestly, the benefits far out weigh the risks in this case, which is what all medicine is about - whether the risks or the benefits outweigh the other.

      Being scared of injections is normal. But it only takes a second and only hurts a litte.
      If you get cervical cancer, there are IV's, surgery, injections for chemotherapy, and more to think about. You will have to do tests for many years after the surgery and treatment if you survive and they will have to inject you with dye or radiation to do scans. You will have many more years of needles and pain if you get it.
      I have thyroid cancer and I get blood drawn every 2 months, I have scans done with injections every 4 months, I have had 2 surgeries and am trying to schedule another and those are far worse than a stick from a needle. The second one was so painful I couldn't get off the couch for a month after - couldn't lay in bed, had to sit propped up to sleep, couldn't lift my son for a month, etc.
      Trust me, the shot is much easier than all that.

  8. QUESTION:
    Should i get the cervical cancer jab?
    I heard it has mercury and people have been telling me its a hoax and it does more bad than good. They said it was more likely i get paralyzed and stuff like that. but then there's people who are saying that it will save your life. What should i do??!

    • ANSWER:
      The people who say it might save your life know what they are talking about.

      I wish there had been an immunisation for me before all that happened. I hate to think what cervical cancer will be like if I am unlucky again.

      I had another sort of cancer last year. Different cancer but similar process.

      Blood test - needle #1
      Biopsy, multiple needles and blood tests - say needles 2&3
      Two surgeries = two iv needles, big ones, - needles 4&5, and some scalpels, etc.
      Four chemos, done with a rather thick needle by a nurse in a hazmat helmet and smock, following a blood test each time -## 6 ,7 ,8, 9, 10
      Nuclear heart test - big needles - ## 11 and 12
      Blood test for radiation #13.
      End of treatment check up blood test - ## 13, 14.
      Follow up blood tests - 15 - 24

      When I got the first cancer, before that one, I got a cerebral angiogram. They cut into my leg and pushed a needle on a tube up inside my carotid artery to near my heart, while I was conscious, to let out a special dye to reach my head.

      I wish there had been an immunisation for me before all that happened.

  9. QUESTION:
    Cervical Cancer Jab ?
    We are due to get 3 shots for cervical cancer in school later this year and next year also. I understand that it does protect you from getting cervical cancer but I also read about the side effects.

    In the newspaper, over 12 girls had bad side effects. I mean bad. Some became partially paralysed, some kept fainting long term e.t.c

    Because of this, me and my parents are concerned whether it would be safe or not for the time being not to take it.

    What are your thoughts about this? Thank You.

    • ANSWER:
      Sure, there are risks. But let me tell you some facts about HPV and cervical cancer.

      At least 8 of 10 women will get HPV. Condoms do not protect you , and men cannot get reliably tested. The only way to protect yourself is the vaccine. Even complete abstinence will not stop you from getting HPV . . . a study from the University of Washington showed that men carry the cancer-causing HPV on their fingernails!! Think about that the next time you shake someone's hand!

      Also note that cervical cancer used to be the NUMBER ONE killer of women. The reason it's not anymore is because the pap smear catches abnormalities in the precancerous stage. Still the treatment for these precancerous abnormalities is removing pieces of your cervix!!! This can lead to pregnancy complications. And if the abnormalities keep returning, you will have no choice but to have a hysterectomy.

      Don't you like your cervix? GET THE VACCINE!

    cervical cancer jab . . . . .?
    im 18 in three months time and i still havent had my cervical cancer jab. all my friends that have had it said that their doctor sent them a letter with an appointment. i havent had an appointmnet so what should i do? i ereally want to have on before im 18 and its playing on my mind all the time :(
    my friends say you have to gave a toital of 3 injections. will i be able to have them all done before the end of feb? bearing in mind they wont be doing many over xmas?

    • ANSWER:
      Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Vaccine
      Genital human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted virus in the United States.

      There are about 40 types of HPV. About 20 million people in the U.S. are infected, and about 6.2 million more get infected each year. HPV is spread through sexual contact.

      Most HPV infections don't cause any symptoms, and go away on their own. But HPV is important mainly because it can cause cervical cancer in women. Every year in the U.S. about 10,000 women get cervical cancer and 3,700 die from it. It is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among women around the world.

      HPV is also associated with several less common types of cancer in both men and women. It can also cause genital warts and warts in the upper respiratory tract.

      More than 50% of sexually active men and women are infected with HPV at some time in their lives.

      There is no treatment for HPV infection, but the conditions it causes can be treated.

  11. QUESTION:
    about the cervical cancer jab?
    i'm 18 and have had a letter asking me to attend for the cervical cancer jab, has anyone had this jab or known anyone who has had the jab as i would like to hear from those who have had it.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi! In reply to your question, I have had the jab. Well, basically you have 3 jabs. I had one in October, then November and my next one will be in March. The actual injection isn't painful, but your arm certainly is afterwards. Everyone said they felt pain in their arm AFTER the jab. The pain usually stays with you for about 2 days. After my first injection, I fainted (but I faint almost everyday, so that wasn't anything out of the ordinary). Someone had an allergic reaction, but that is extremely rare. Lots of people said they felt ill, but that soon disappeared.
      What happened with my jab, was that two at a time we would enter a room and get injected. Simple!
      The people who give it to you are extremely kind, and they let me have mine lying down. Minutes before the injection people "chickened" out, and they didn't have to have it done. If you have one injection, you have to have the other two, so make sure you are prepared.
      Well, I hope I haven't put you off, because it really isn't that bad.

  12. QUESTION:
    Should i have the cervical cancer jab?
    i've heard loads of bad things and wat it can do to you....i'm 14...........should i have it???? thankyouu x

    • ANSWER:
      There is no such thing as a "cervical cancer jab". What they are trying to push on you is the vaccine that is for HPV, which may (or may not) be a cause of cervical cancer. It only protects against 4 types of the virus and while many girls have had it with no problems it has caused serious side effects in some and at least 20 girls have died from it. It was pushed through way too fast and long term side effects are not yet known. I would never get it nor would I ever let my daughter get it. Just go to the website of company that makes it (Merk) and look at the ingredients and decide if you want them injecting things like that into your body. FYI, doctors get cash bonuses from Merk for every dose they give out, so it is in their best interest to get as many girls to take it as possible

  13. QUESTION:
    Cervical Cancer Jabs? Girls?
    When I was in school, nearly every girl got the jabs for cervical cancer, apart from me because my mum didn't want me to have it. I can see why and I have researched it. I have turned 16 now, and I have got a letter from the Doctors so it is my own personal decision whether to get it now. But I really don't know whether to get it. There was literally only a couple of girls that didn't get it. I am in the middle of getting some other jabs though just because I am going to a foreign country, so I don't know! I'm not afraid of needles or anything but I am just scared. Did you get it? Or know anyone ?

    • ANSWER:
      Not a girl - just a cancer doctor.
      Get the "jabs."
      This falls in the category of "can't hurt and might help."
      I like medicines or preventive vaccines that can't hurt and might help.
      My ex wife developed an anal cancer related to the HPV virus.
      She wishes she had the shots when she was 16 and not yet sexually active.
      The very best way to deal with cancers is to prevent them if possible.
      My ex had to go through chemo and radiation. She is cured, but it was NOT fun.
      Hate to say it - but your mum is Neanderthal thinking.
      You seem better informed. I figure you as an adult at 16. I was.
      Needle sticks are nothing - mind over matter - take your mind somewhere else
      and you won't even feel the "jabs."
      I used to have my medical students practice starting IV's on me.
      They were terrible at it. Better me for practice than the poor patients.

  14. QUESTION:
    Cervical cancer jab ?
    Why is there not a jab for men?
    I wasn't asking why don't men get the cervical cancer jab, I meant why isn't there one for men, like a testicular cancer jab?

    • ANSWER:
      Thats a good question. I asked the same one a while back and only got one answer. I was looking for the q, but cant find it now. They said something along the lines that they just havent tested it on men yet.

      Its seems kinda dumb to me. I mean, men get and spread hpv, why only vaccinate the girls? And then only girls of a certain age? I understand that once you have had sex you have probably already been exposed, but...

      Cervical cancer is also not the only cancer that is HPV positive. I dont remember everything the person said, but apparently there are a lot of different cancers that can be hpv positive if you have hpv.

      This is one area where I join some of the conspiracy theorists. Gaurdasil is a great vaccine, and a great idea, and a great preventative method not only for the virus but for cancer as well. But WHY do we only give it to preteen girls???????????

  15. QUESTION:
    Arm against cervical cancer jab?
    My school is now doing the 3 jabs for all ages, I have to have one.
    I'm not particularly afraid of needles, I had a tetanus, mumps and something else jab a few months ago.
    My mum doesn't really want me to get the jab, it hasn't been tested on long-term, and there's no guarantee it even works. The two most common pv is 16 & 18, which are apparently acountable for 70%. and the vaccine is supposed to lower the chances by 70%, which is only a 49% chance of me not contracting Cervical Cancer, because of the jabs, and only something like 1 in 30 women get it anyway. Also we dont even know how long the jab lasts, 5 years? 2 years? 10 years?
    Are there any hidden side affects, downsides or things the government are trying to hide from us about the jab.
    If I want it I can go to court & get my mum overruled, but I'm not exactly keen on that.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks (: xx
    Okay you may say I've read the stats wrong, but the Nhs leaflet I got through the door said:
    The Vaccine has a 70% percent chance of fully protecting you against strains 16 & 18.
    Higher up it said 16 & 18 are THOUGHT to be the cause for nearly 70% of Hpv virus.
    To be honest I'm just worried about long term effects, and some people have died of this. (in america~)

    • ANSWER:
      Okay, first of all, you are reading the stats incorrectly. The vaccine is 100% effective against HPV 16 & 18 which cause 70% of cervical cancer. So your chances of cervical cancer will probably be reduced by around 70%.

      Also, the vaccine has show to provide cross protection aginst some additional HPV strains. I'm not sure about the stats on those, but basically you aren't getting 49% protection, you are getting over 70%.

      Every vaccine has small risks, but the HPV vaccine has been shown to be as safe as any other vaccine.

      The only common side effects are mild and temporary. Serious sidde effects are extremely rare, and mostly cannot even be definitively linked to the vaccine.

      It's true we don't know how long it lasts. You may need a booster in 5 years or so, but then again, you may not.

      And pretty much everyone gets HPV just as soon as they start having sex. Condoms do no prtect you and men cannot get tested. The only way to protect yourself is vaccination.

      Get it

      ************************
      The 70% estimate is probably accurate. HPV 16 is found in about 50% of cervical cancers and HPV 18 in about 20%. One problem with figuring out which type of HPV caused a particular cervical cancer is that many cervical cancers contain multiple strains of HPV.

      Another problem is that the percentage of cervical cancer with a certain HPV strain varies from region to region. And actually, in areas where screening is good, a greater percentage of cervical cancers are caused by HPV 18. This is because HPV 18 is involved in nearly all adenocarcinomas. The pap smear is very good at detecting carcinoma, but not adenocarcimona which can occur higher up in the cervical canal. Thus, in areas where screening is good, HPV 18 is found in more than 30% of cervical cancers. And adenocarcimona is a more agressive from of cervical cancer.

      However you look it at it, you are getting a lot of protection from cervical cancer. I totally wish the vaccine covered all high risk strains, but just because it doesn't that doesn't mean it's not worth getting!

    cervical cancer jab please help?
    i am due to have the cervical cancer jabs this year. i dont kow if i want them yet as im scared of needles and theyre not proven to work 100%. my parents want me to have it and wont listen to me that i might not want it. are all the side effects ive heard common?? also my friend wants to know before you get the jab do you have to answer questions and will they ask for your weight?
    i was also wondering is it like a normal injection tht goes into top of your arm? if not where do they put it??

    • ANSWER:
      Cervical cancer is malignant neoplasm of the cervix uteri or cervical area. It may present with vaginal bleeding but symptoms may be absent until the cancer is in its advanced stages.[1] Treatment consists of surgery (including local excision) in early stages and chemotherapy and radiotherapy in advanced stages of the disease.

      Pap smear screening can identify potentially precancerous changes. Treatment of high grade changes can prevent the development of cancer. In developed countries, the widespread use of cervical screening programs has reduced the incidence of invasive cervical cancer by 50% or more

  17. QUESTION:
    what is the cervical cancer jab?
    ok so im in 1st yr in school here in ireland and i heard the government was going to start bringing in this jab. what does it prevent? please help!! thanks xx

    • ANSWER:
      There is no such thing as a "cervical cancer jab". What they are forcing on you is the HPV vaccine. HPV may (or may not) be a cause of cervical cancer. Maybe you should research the poisons they are injecting into your body before you blindly follow the crowd. I would never let anyone inject that crap into my body, nor would I ever allow my daughter to be a lab rat to the drug companies. Did you know doctors get a cash bonus for every dose of that garbage they inject into young girls? Do your research, you may not be "one less".

  18. QUESTION:
    Cervical Cancer Jab..?
    I haven't had one yet and wanted to know a little more about it. I've heard loads of different stories and wanted to clear up what was true and what wasn't.

    I heard that you can't have it if your not a virgin with or without a condom and if you have it it's a waste of time and it can be dangerous to have it without being a virgin. (surely you don't definitely get the virus or whatever it is from having sex with anyone?)

    I've heard you can have it if you've used a condom and it will be just as affective as it was with a virgin.

    I've also heard that there's a chance you could of began to get the virus that leads to the cancer or denature your cells through "heavy petting."

    Please could you help me clear up this? Thankyouu!

      I heard that you can't have it if your not a virgin with or without a condom and if you have it it's a waste of time and it can be dangerous to have it without being a virgin. (surely you don't definitely get the virus or whatever it is from having sex with anyone?)

      You can have it whether you've had sex or not, I still got it and I have a daughter, I'm quite obviously not a virgin. Whilst having sex reduces it's effectiveness by something like 20%, it's still worth having. It covers you from two of the viruses that cause cervical cancer, these two viruses cause 70% of cervical cancer, so even if I'm only 50% protected against them, it's better than nothing.

      I've heard you can have it if you've used a condom and it will be just as effective as it was with a virgin.

      It makes no difference whether you used a condom or not, you should look into getting this jab, most schools are doing it, with parental consent, or without if you are over 16.

      I've also heard that there's a chance you could of began to get the virus that leads to the cancer or denature your cells through "heavy petting."

      No, like all immunisations, HPV is a dead or only slightly alive virus, it gives your body the chance to make the antibodies it needs to protect you if you get the real virus without actually harming you. Heavy petting will make no difference to your HPV jabs at all.

      Just remember if you have the first one, you need to carry on and get the other two, otherwise you're not protected.

      Just in case you hear the horror stories, the NHS is NOT using the Gardisil vaccine, it's using the Cervarix vaccine instead. Gardisil is being used in the U.S.A. and has in some case been attributed to deaths, but no-one is completely sure. Cervarix IS vigorously tested, it IS safe, and it WILL protect you.

      "Are there any side effects of the vaccine?

      As with most vaccines, the most common side effect is mild to moderate swelling, redness and pain at the site where the injection is given. Other mild side effects, such as slightly raised temperature, sickness, dizziness, diarrhoea and muscle aches have been reported.

      Very rarely, as with most vaccines, some people have an allergic reaction soon after immunisation. This reaction may be a rash or itching affecting part or all of the body. The nurse will know how to treat this. It is not a reason to stop having HPV vaccinations.

      Even more rarely, people can have a bad reaction, within a few minutes of the injection usually, with breathing difficulties and collapse. This is called an anaphylactic reaction. These are extremely rare and the nurse or doctor is trained to deal with vaccine anaphylactic reactions. Individuals recover completely with treatment, usually within a few hours."

    • ANSWER:
      Girls should get cervical cancer jab, says EU
      The vaccine against the sexually transmitted virus that causes the most cases of cervical cancer is cost-effective and should be given to adolescent girls before they start having sex, an EU agency said on Tuesday.

      Merck's Gardasil and GlaxoSmithKline's Cervarix vaccines could best help reduce cervical cancer when used with cervical cancer screening programmes, says a report by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.

      "We are saying the vaccine is probably cost-effective and should be given to girls before they start their sexual life," says Johan Giesecke, the agency's chief scientist.

    Cervical Cancer Jab...?
    i got a letter from my gp asking me to have the jab but im so scared of having it done! Does it hurt? any side effects? please answer this question and any infomation you have please

    • ANSWER:
      There is no such thing as a "cervical cancer vaccine". What they are trying to push on you is the vaccine that is for HPV, which may (or may not) be a cause of cervical cancer. It only protects against 4 types of the virus and while many girls have had it with no problems it has caused serious side effects in some and at least 20 girls have died from it. It was pushed through way too fast and long term side effects are not yet known. I would never get it nor would I ever let my daughter get it. Just go to the website of company that makes it (Merk) and look at the ingredients and decide if you want them injecting things like that into your body. FYI, doctors get cash bonuses from Merk for every dose they give out, so it is in their best interest to get as many girls to take it as possible

  22. QUESTION:
    What was the 2nd cervical cancer jab like?

    • ANSWER:
      Not a doctor!!! But i do know what cures cancer without any side effects and you do not need a doctor to inject anything into you!!! You can cure your own health problems!!! I live in a state where 65% of the voters voted for us to use medical marijuana!!! (Marijuana is not a deadly harmful addictive drug it is a plant that you may like a lot but it is easy to come down from it!!! DO NOT BELIEVE ANY old government propaganda about marijuana, it was made to protect pill pushers and chemo pushers profits because marijuana is a plant that can not be patented so they cannot get exclusive rights and mega profits from it's use) Which is better known in the curing community as HEMP OIL OR CANNABIS OIL OR RICK SIMPSON OIL!!! This is what many are using to cure all cancers from stage 1 skin cancers all the way to stage 4 prostate cancers!!! If you were lucky enough to be a long time smoker of "weed" you probably do not have any cancers in you or any respiratory or other major health problems because marijuana is a inhibitor enzyme of cancer and most other diseases!!!

      Harper says 'If we vaccinate 11-year-olds and the protection doesn't last...we've put them at harm from side effects, small but real, for no benefit. The benefit to public health is nothing, there is no reduction in cervical cancers, they are just postponed, unless the protection lasts for at least 15 years, and over 70% of all sexually active females of all ages are vaccinated.'

      She also says that enough serious side effects have been reported after Gardasil use that the vaccine could prove riskier than the cervical cancer it purports to prevent. Cervical cancer is usually entirely curable when detected early through a normal Pap screening ... "

    • ANSWER:
      im sorry but you should get another one. take all 3 of them. I can tell you that cervical cancer is going to be WAY more painful then a shot! way more!!

      not only does the shot protect against cervical cancer but anal,mouth, throat, penis, vaginal and vulva cancer. please please get the other shot. i wish it was avaliable to me but now its too late!(have cervical cancer)

      and also, there are 10,000 women or more in the U.S alone that find out they have cervical cancer and more than 4,000 women die a year from it.

    HPV CERVICAL CANCER JABS?
    ok im having my last hpv jab tomorrow. im rreaaally scared and although i have already had 2 the last one was awful! My lady stabbed me with the needel... but the first one was really nice. what could i do to calm my nerves? IM SOO SCAREDD!!!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Just think about not having cervical cancer!!! Seriously though, the vaccine protects against more that cancer.

      HPV is very common. Some studies have shown well over 90% of people have it.

      Did you know 4% of women will develop high grade cervical lesions? These are pretty easily treated to prevent cancer, but the treatment involves cutting off pieces of your cervix!! This can lead to pregnancy complications and increased risk of preterm birth. Getting the vaccine prevents that as well!

      Just think about your happy, healthy cervix and you'll get through it!

      Yeah, it sucks, but it's TOTALLY worth it, right?

    Do they actually no 4 definate it actually stops you from gettinin cervikal cancer?????

    What do they do??? Do you have a injection and thats all or what???
    If you add some extra info about what cervikal cancer is that could help

    Thnx xxx

    • ANSWER:
      Gosh, what you're asking would involve reams of paper to answer properly! So I'll keep it simple. I spent 15 years as a vaccine specialist and one of the products I worked on was a cervical cancer vaccine. I have seen all the main clinical trials for the products.

      They KNOW it prevents cancer to a very great extent because they compare cancer rates in the vaccinated ladies to those in the unvaccinated ladies. The difference between the 2 groups was shocking and the trial had to be ended early due to the cancer rate in the unvaccinated group.

      Both Gardasil and Cervarix are HIGHLY effective against HPV types 16 & 18 cervical cancers. Gardasil is also highly effective against types 6 & 11 genital warts.

      If I had a daughter I would have her vaccinated. I would be prepared to have the vaccine myself (but am over the recommended age) and I recommend it to you.

      I no longer work for a vaccine manufacturer and have no shares or financial interests in recommending vaccination!

  27. QUESTION:

    i want to have sex with my boyfrend, like soon. but my mum has mentioned me having the cervical cancer jab. can you hav it after you have had sex? and would you need to say if you have had sex or not before you have it??

    • ANSWER:
      Cervical cancer
      Definition

      Cervical cancer is a disease in which the cells of the cervix become abnormal and start to grow uncontrollably, forming tumors.

      Description

      In the United States, cervical cancer is the fifth most common cancer among women aged 35 54, and the third most common cancer of the female reproductive tract. In some developing countries, it is the most common type of cancer. It generally begins as an abnormality in the cells on the outside of the cervix. The cervix is the lower part or neck of the uterus (womb). It connects the body of the uterus to the vagina (birth canal).

  28. QUESTION:
    Have you had the Cervical Cancer jab?
    I'm getting them done this year and I want all the details so I am totally prepared and my mind won't over react and scare me. The main things I want to know are:
    * Did you or anyone you know faint or be sick?
    * If so was it straight after?
    * Were your nurses nice?
    * How long did the needle bit last for?
    * Which arm did you get it in?
    * Were you in a room with other girls getting it done?
    * What date was it when you got it done? (My friend had one done the day after my birthday so I don't want that!!!)
    And any other details you can remember,
    Thank you so much!!!

    • ANSWER:
      I've had them done. Believe me, I don't think I could be more squeamish about needles and mine went fine. I had 3 jabs altogether.
      I don't know anyone who was sick, but a few people fainted. Why? Simply because they got themselves worked up. It was nothing to do with the actual drug - they were so scared they ended up fainting. That's proof fretting will do you no good! And it was pretty much straight afterwards, yes.

      The nurses are quite good with you. Mine had a very calm personality and she really helped me calm down. I imagine this is how they are trained to be so don't worry.

      The needle is so thin, you can't feel it that much. You feel sort of a piercing scratch but it's not really painful. The second of my 3 cervical jabs hurt the most but people are differences. The nurse will count to either 3 or 5, I cant remember.
      I got it in my left arm which was a relief. You'll probably get them done in the opposite arm to write you write, unless you have an arm infection or large burn or deep wounds, then they wont :)

      I had mine done in the library at school, which was very large. There were 3 or 4 nurses doing them at once so don't worry, everyone should be there.

      As for the dates I'm not entirely sure - this was 2 years ago!!! Good luck with your vaccinations! I hope I gave you good details, even though your nurse will tell you about it too!

  29. QUESTION:
    cervical cancer jab help?
    im in year 10, and having regular sex wiht my boyfriend. im on the combined pill. im supposed to be getting the cervical cancer jab in a year or so, but loads of people have told me i cant have it , or its non affective as i am have sex. is this true?
    no, i am not 10 years old! i am in year 10 at school, (4th grade or what ever you call it in america) and im 15

    • ANSWER:
      If by saying you are "in year 10" means that you are 10 years old and having sex, that is first, illegal and you need to rethink what you are doing. To be taking birth control pills is synthetic hormone therapy and that is being promoted as O.K. by the medical community, but that's not the whole story. When birth control pills were first introduced, the breast cancer rate went way up, so the drug industry, after several years of that reduced the hormone level in those drugs and the breast cancer rate diminished slightly. Of course, this was not publicized and discussed in the general public, but promoting the pill as safe did continue and is still being promoted as such today.

      Breast cancer rates were 1 in 15 when the pill was introduced and it is 1 in 7 today. Of course, the drug companies are claiming the pill is safe based on "their studies" that have been used by the FDA as fact now. We really don't know what the long term affect changing a woman's endocrine system, especially the "feed back systems" in the body will do long term. We do know that the endocrine is a system of complex relationships and when you affect one of the organs in that system, you affect them all. The thyroid is part of that system and that's why women gain weight on the pill. So the pill does affect a woman's body negatively in many ways. The ovaries are affected because when you get off the pill, it takes lots of time for you to get a period.

      If you believe your long term health is NOT affected by the pill, you need to free yourself from the lies you believe. If you think the FDA is your friend and looking out for you, you need to examine your education because, you have been indoctrinated by some very sharp marketing types, not educated. And if you think your doctor will help you in this regard, think again. They are NOT trained in nutrition and are about "MAKE BELIEVE HEALTH" by prescribing drugs and surgery to address symptoms, NOT "root causes" of disease.

      If you think the cervical cancer "jab" as you call it is good for you, again, you need to understand that all the drug company that made that product is about is profit and NOT health. If you examine the facts, and not the scare tactics and marketing hype surrounding that garbage, you will realize they are only interested in making the billion estimated profit from the sales of that junk, NOT YOUR HEALTH.

      The reason your friends are telling you that the HPV vaccine is NOT effective for you is that it only addresses 4% of the potential viruses that cause the cancer and it does NOT CURE THE HPV CANCER problem.

      Whatever you do in life has consequences. The HPV vaccine is more than terrible; it may be the worst joke put in front of the public since vaccines were introduced to the human race. DO NOT GET THIS VACCINE. Watch this video:
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfU6y6KhE...

      HPV, human papilloma virus, cervical cancer, cancer, vaccine, paralysisA month after 13 year old Jenny Tetlock was vaccinated against the HPV virus, she missed the lowest hurdle in gym class. It was the first sign of a degenerative muscle disease that 15 months later left her nearly completely paralyzed.

      Her father, Philip Tetlock, a professor at UC-Berkeley, has embarked on an odyssey to find out whether the vaccine, Gardasil, is to blame.

      Tetlock is not the only one concerned. The public watchdog group Judicial Watch has been periodically obtaining adverse event reports on Gardasil from the FDA. 10 deaths have been linked to Gardasil since September 2007, and there have been 140 reports so far this year of serious side effects such as miscarriage and Guillain-Barr syndrome.

      Once you educate yourself and know the facts about Gardasil, the truth about HPV, and the statistics of cervical cancer, it will become quite clear just how outrageously useless -- and dangerous -- this vaccine really is.

      The FDA, in not-so-rare form, insists there's no medical reason to be worried about the side effects of Gardasil. "We're monitoring the safety of the HPV vaccine very carefully, and the only adverse event that causes some concern is fainting after the vaccine," says Robert Ball, director of the FDA's office of biostatistics and division of epidemiology.

      He continues to say, Higher rates of Guillain-Barr have been associated with the swine flu vaccine and possibly with the meningitis vaccine Menactra, but it is no more common in those who get Gardasil than in those who don't.

      Alright. Let s say you agree with the idea that the cases of Guillain-Barre syndrome are pure coincidence, despite the fact that they occur within days or weeks of vaccination.

      But what about the deaths? Infant deaths following Merck s rotavirus are routinely disguised under the label SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome). So what do we have when healthy teenagers drop dead for no reason? SAD -- Sudden Adolescent Death? Will that be the next big thing? Will there be SAD campaigns , with physicians educating the public about proper sleeping positions until you re well into your 20 s?

      I recently read a comment online from one mother who said she d do anything in her power to make sure her children were protected, and she couldn t understand the narrow-minded opinions and fear mongering of Gardasil nay-sayers.

      Would you rather your daughters died of cervical cancer? she wrote.

      Well, that s just it, right there! As I will show you, the chances of your daughter dying of cervical cancer are already VERY LOW, and the possibility of Gardasil sparing them from cervical cancer is so RIDICULOUSLY LOW that no reasonable person could argue for the use of this HPV vaccine if they knew all the facts.

      How Likely are You to Develop and Die From Cervical Cancer? According to the CDC, cervical cancer used to be the leading cause of cancer death for women in the United States. However, in the past 40 years, the number of cervical cancer cases and the number of deaths thereof have decreased significantly. It is believed that this decline is the result of many women getting regular Pap tests, which can find cervical pre-cancer before it turns into cancer.

      According to the U.S. Cancer Statistics: 2004 Incidence and Mortality report, 11,892 women in the U.S. were told that they had cervical cancer in 2004, and 3,850 women died from the disease. The American Cancer Society mirrors these statistics, estimating that about 3,870 women will die from cervical cancer in the U.S. in 2008.

      Well. We ve already lost 18 girls, some as young as 12, in the effort to spare them from the mere possibility of cervical cancer later in life. Others have developed debilitating and potentially life-threatening ailments within weeks of being vaccinated, and others still have had spontaneous abortions or given birth to babies with birth defects.

      Also consider this: Cervical cancer usually develops in your late 20s to mid 30s. The protection period of Gardasil is estimated to be 5 years. That means, if you receive your first set of shots when you re 10 years old, you d need at least 2 to 4 additional booster shots to make it through your 30s. And THAT means you ll have to expose yourself to the potential side effects of Gardasil over and over and over again.

      But now to the real clincher, and I want you to read the following section as many times as you need to let this truly sink in

      U.S. statistics show there are 30 to 40 cervical cancer cases per year per one million women between the ages of 9 and 26, which is the age bracket that Gardasil targets (and was tested on).

      According to Merck, Gardasil was shown to reduce pre-cancers by 12.2% to 16.5% in the general population. So, instead of ending up with 30 to 40 cases of cancer per million, per year, in that age bracket, the HPV vaccine can potentially bring it down to 26 to 35 cases of cervical cancer.

      What that means is that you would have to vaccinate one million girls to prevent cervical cancer in 4 to 5 girls.

      Further, about 37 percent of women who develop cervical cancer actually die from the disease, so vaccinating ONE MILLION girls would prevent 1 to 2 DEATHS per year, at the bargain-basement price of 0 million per year, plus potentially lifelong suffering for an untold number of women, which has no price tag. Is this REASONABLE?

      There are more than 100 types of human papillomaviruses (HPVs). Of them, about 40 types of HPV affect your genitals or sex organs, and can cause genital warts, for example. 10-30 strains can lead to cervical cancer. The remainder can cause to skin infections and common warts on your hands and feet.

      The CDC web site states that certain types of HPV can infect your cervix and lead to cervical cancer over many years. (This may be one of the reasons why cancer rates keep dropping, because there s sufficient amount of time to treat any abnormalities if you re getting regular Pap smears.)

      It also says that in 90 percent of women infected, HPV clears up on its own within two years, at which point your cervical cells go back to normal. It is only when the HPV virus lingers for many years that these abnormal cells could turn into cancer.

      Additionally, it s important to know that the vast majority of abnormal Pap tests do NOT equate to cancer. Even abnormal Pap tests showing pre-cancerous cells of the CIN II grade clear by themselves without treatment 40 percent of the time.

      And, current treatment of pre-cancers has limited the progression to actual cancer to only 1 percent. So, just like the polio vaccine, Merck's HPV vaccine is coming out at a time when cervical cancer is already on a steady decline, and anyone who starts talking about how Gardasil has reduced cervical cancer rates in the next few years is likely talking absolute nonsense.

    I went onto the Cancer Research UK site, and overall only 2/100 cancers diagnosed in women are cervical cancers.

    • ANSWER:
      ive had 2 cervical cancer jabs and am going to get a 3rd. Noone at my school actually fainted from it but, there are side affects (im not trying to put you off havin it) some side affects include tiredness, dizzyness. But they should soon go away. There are other media stories about the jab that may sound concerning (they concened me) but, it doesnt hurt that much, just grab on to somthing and squeese it count up to 5 slowly and it will be over. If you concider it after the side affects (somtimes) you will be glad you had it because cervical cancer is a killer. I understand your concern but, i think if your worried about it because you think it will hurt and think you will faint then you should have the injection because not many people faint and, it doesnt hurt that much. But if your scared about having it because of the media then you should decide for yourself. I think you should have it though. Hope i helped XD

      it doesnt prevent the cancer 100% but it prevents a condition that i CANNOT for the life of me remember the name of! ... err... no its gone lol... but anyway this nameless condition causes something like 70% of all cervical cancer cases so with that gone the logic is that they will cut the number of women getting cancer... it does NOT mean that you are not at risk still.., you should continue having pap smears and all that jazz...

      hope i helped.

  33. QUESTION:
    CERVICAL CANCER JAB HELP?
    Does anyone know how long the cervical cancer jab protects you for? will be grateful for any answers
    thanks in advance
    Do you think i should have it done?

    • ANSWER:
      The vaccine for HPV (not for Cervical Cancer) is manufactured by Merck & Co. The length of vaccine protection (immunity) is usually not known when a vaccine is first introduced. So far, studies have found that vaccinated persons are protected for five years. More research is being done to find out how long protection will last, and if a booster dose of vaccine will be needed. It expected to work for full life like any other vaccine and it will be confirmed by the Manufactuers and FDA in due course.

      The vaccine is given in three does within a period of 6 months and presumably not further booster dose is required to be given. It is not yet known how much protection girls/women would get from receiving only one or two doses of the vaccine. For this reason, it is very important that girls/women get all three doses of the vaccine.

      HPV vaccine is the first vaccine developed to prevent cervical cancer. This new vaccine is highly effective in preventing HPV infection, the major cause of cervical cancer in women. The vaccine protects against four types of HPV, including two that cause about 70% of cervical cancer.

      In my opinion all women and girls should have this vaccine in all 3 cycles and save themselves from the deadly disease. -

  34. QUESTION:
    Cervical cancer jab!!!! HELPPPPPP?
    I am in year nine in school but as im not 14 before october i have to have the jab!! Trouble- i hate jabs sooo much!! What do i do?? also i have heard that it doesn't even work!! Does it ??? Any other information about it would be great!! Also my friend who is the same age as me has had sex and is worried that by having the jab it will be able to tell if shes had it or not, is this true? also should she not have the jab if shes already had sex?? i think she had sex in year 7 (not sure)

    • ANSWER:
      I really think you should have the jab, it will be over in seconds, and anything you can do to lessen the risk of getting cancer is worth it! What is a little prick in your arm compared to dying, or losing your chance of a family when you are older?
      They wont be able to tell if either of you have had sex from the jab, and will probably be too busy to ask, But have you both thought that you are under age and could get in serious trouble and if the boys are over 16 they could go to jail?

  35. QUESTION:
    Cervical cancer jab questions!?
    OK so I've got the jab booked for next week and basically I'd like to know how much it hurts (lol I'm scared of needles) and also what the nurse will ask me because my mum's coming in with me! Also, I've read on here you can't have sex for 6 months afterwards, is this ACTUALLY a lie?
    Thanks!
    I DO NOT MEAN A PAP SMEAR TEST. I MEAN THE VACCINATION WHICH IS SUPPOSED TO PREVENT YOU GETTING THE CANCER!

    • ANSWER:
      Hi! Are you talking about the cervical cancer vaccine, here? If yes, it's just like another injection. Just a needle prick, which will have to be repeated after a month and then after 6 months. I had it. Nothing big, although I felt tired and a bit weak for a couple of days after having the vaccine. Regarding sex after the vaccine - this IS A LIE. You can continue having sex (although practicing safe sex is always advisable).

      I'm not sure what the nurse could ask you. Anything about your sex life ... well, whatever question she comes up with is for your own good. She's in the best position to provide you with information and education.

      Well, it's good that your mum will be accompanying you. However, if I were you, I would leave her in the waiting area. Some support before you enter the clinic helps, however, having her with you may not let you be completely honest with your replies to your nurse ... and nurses are supportive enough of people who are afraid of needles! :)

      Last thing: Although you take the cervical cancer vaccine, you still need to continue having regular pap smears and practice safe sex, if you want to cut down your risk of cervical cancer.

      Good luck!

  36. QUESTION:
    Is the cervical Cancer jab dangerous?
    I'm 17 and i have received the letter about getting the jab against cervical cancer. My mum really wants me to get it. I heard someone say the other day that it can leave you paralysed or make you infertile?

    Are these just silly rumours or are they true?

    • ANSWER:
      THE GOVERNMENT WILL NOT DISCLOSE THE TRUE CONTENTS OF VACCINES

      Watch this video for why you shouldn t take the vaccines.

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SIjm9w_-tNY

      DON'T TAKE IT!! Or you may get cancer its mass genocide; the vaccine has mercury in it!! It s the 2d most toxic substance on earth. More people get cancer that take the vaccines, than thoes who do not. In the UK they plan to give every teenage girl free vaccine to supposedly protect them from cervical cancer. Independent scientific evidence shows that there IS no link between the HPV Papilloma virus and cancer, NO LINK! Watch video for evidence http://www.infowars.com/articles/science/vaccines_hpv_great_hoax_exposed.htm

      It s the same with all vaccines, children's too, can't you see the huge increase in autism and other learning difficulties. Mercury is a deadly toxin and a baby's undeveloped brain has no resistance to the mercury. The same aply's to the flu jab and the Aids vaccine. The government need sick people because that the biggest money making racket after oil and war. More people make money out of cancer that those who die from it. Do your own research on the Internet, goggle dangerous vaccines or view them on you tube.

      WHY do people not ask what is in the vaccine??????????????? Before they put the shot in their body? Even doctors can t tell what the ingredients are because they just accept what their told and give it to you. Go on ask what s in it, you won t get any answers!

      Parents of the gulf war solders asking what was in the vaccines that the army gave were told that that was classified information!! (It was actually a flu jab).

    Cervical cancer jab.scared!?
    im 13 and so im going to get a jab at school against cervical cancer.im really scared because i dont like jabs

    does it hurt?

    can i have more info about it and advice plz!

    • ANSWER:
      I got the cervical cancer jabs when I was your age and I admit I was a little scared! But honestly, it's over in literally 2 seconds, in and out with the needle and it's maybe a tiny sting/pinch, nothing major. It doesn't even hurt as much as getting your ears pierced, if you have had them done you have no reason to be worried.
      It's important to get it done. A warning though, the day after, you arm will ache like if you've lifted something heavy and strained it IF you don't move your arm after you have the jab done.You have to keep it moving to prevent it from becoming stiff, I don't know the reason why but the nurse who did it told me to keep moving it around and I didn't because it still ached in the one spot from the needle - and boy, did I regret it haha ached even worse the day after.
      Don't worry, it's very quick and you are lucky to get jabs like these, some people aren't so lucky.

  39. QUESTION:
    Sex after Cervical cancer HPV jab?
    Hey im 19 just been to the doctors monday for my last HPV Jab for cervical cancer, Now my course of injections are over can i have sex with my boyfriend again? Im on the Pill at the moment :) Dont know if it effects it? But yeah can i go back to having sex as normal or do i have to wait a while? x
    (and no neither of us has sexually transmitted infections)
    Thank you!! :D xx

    • ANSWER:
      If you and your partner were sexually active before you started your series of injections...there was no need to abstain while you were receving the series of injections.

      Both Cervarix and Gardasil are preventative vaccine...preventing one of the HPV it is said to prevent. Cervarix prevents HPV types 16 and 18 and Gardasil prevents HPV types 6, 11, 16 and 18. If you had already engaged in sex then you may have already been exposed to one of these HPV types. You may still receive some benefits of the vaccine...but you may not receive full benefits. It can take years before cell changes develop after initially acquiring an HPV type.

      They are 40 genital HPV types. Neither vaccine prevents all genital HPV types. There is no approved HPV test for the male so no positive way to know if he carries an HPV type.

      The Pill doesn't effective the vaccine.

      If you have not engaged in any sexual activity waiting 2 weeks would probably be wise.

      The Cervical cancer jabs do not prevent all HPV types that cause cancer so make sure you have routine Pap testing.

    • ANSWER:
      This cervical shot is not only the biggest scam to hit the vaccine market in years, but is dangerous and totally unnecessary. Many women have been harmed by it and the risk out weighs the supposed benefits. Go to: www.marytocco.com and read the 30 years of research that she has done regarding this and other vaccines. Educate yourself. Why anyone would risk the damage it does to your body and immune system is beyond me. Listening to the drug companies that are promoting this is NOT wise under any reasonable logic. Did you know that the antibodies in that junk are only good for about 4 years. The statistics show that women in their mid 20's are the ones susceptible to this problem, not young women.

      EDIT: "Rhianna" I see you are at it again. "I WILL NOT BE IGNORED." Let's see the statistics showing the effectiveness of this shot for these young girls you seem to think they need. You are always quick with your mouth to make bold statements like you are some kind of expert, but I see NO facts to back up your statements! Your bias is obvious to everyone on this site and you continually make every attempt to discredit anything that is contrary to your BELIEFS. Show us proof that the shot is effective beyond the 4 possibly 5 years and that these young girls are getting cancer. WHERE IS THAT PROOF?

      EDIT: Further to why Gardisil is a ridiculous vaccine:

      The HPV vaccine is given in muscle tissue. From there it will cause a blood borne immune response. This response makes anti-bodies, proteins that attach themselves to another specific protein. Gardasil contains a protein in the HPV outer shell. Once the anti-body attaches itself to an HPV protein it is marked for destruction. The vaccine only protects against HPV 6, 11 (causing warts) & 16, 18 ("causing" cancer).

      Gardasil "protects" against only 4 of more than 100 HPV's.

      The big problem is that it protects against an infection in the blood. But HPV is a tissue infection. Merck, the maker of Gardasil, and the FDA even warn on their websites that gardasil won't protect you against an infection you already have.

      Well guess what? It offers very little to no protection against any tissue infection of HPV. Vaccines trigger Humoral Immune Response (HIR), antibodies in the blood. This type of response does very little to nothing for infections in tissue because antibodies cannot reach them. That is why Merck tells you Gardasil is useless if you are already infected.

      Vaccines also trigger a local immune response in the tissue where they are injected. This type of response is called a Cell Mediated Immunity (CMI). CMI fights tissue infections caused by virus, bacteria and also fights cervical cancer (and many other cancers as well). But the CMI response in the injected muscle tissue does not spread anywhere else in your body, it stays right there in that muscle tissue and does not extend into the cervix.

      Most people, when they get infected with HPV, clear the infection before any symptoms are noticed. Most people who develop symptoms like warts or dysplasia get rid of both without doctors, drugs or vaccines (dysplasia are abnormal cells in the cervix). The body's immune system gets rid of it. Why not build immunity instead of injecting poisons in the body that damage the immune system's ability to work.

      There are vaccines being developed right now that work on cell mediated immunity. If they ever come to market, once I see the testing results and theory behind how they work, there might be hope for that type of vaccine if it doesn't contain all the other poisons being put into vaccines these days. It could clear an active infection depending on what the problem is with a chronically infected person's immune system.

      Until then Gardasil and cervarix are useless very expensive vaccines designed for profit, not to help people, only to line the pockets of drug companies and increase shareholder value.

      EDIT: On the Merck website, the side effects are listed as pain, swelling, itching, bruising and redness at the injection site; headache, fever, nausea, dizziness, vomiting and fainting. Sometimes fainting is accompanied by falling with injury, as well as shaking or stiffening and other seizure-like activity. The product information also says that patients who are severely allergic to yeast should not take Gardasil. Sounds relatively harmless, right? Let s go a little deeper.

      Since the drug s introduction in 2006, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) has received more than 18,000 reports of adverse side effects related to Gardasil. These reports include serious adverse effects including Guilliane Barre, lupus, seizures, paralysis, blood clots, brain inflammation, severe fatigue and weakness, heart problems, shortness of breath, chest pains and many more. This statistic is especially compelling when you realize that approximately less than 10% of doctors statistically follow the law and report to VAERS adverse effects.

      At last count, there have been at least 73 reported deaths as a result of Gardasil use, this does not include spontaneous abortions. Cervarix has been responsible for more than 9,000 cases of serious, adverse reactions and at least 3 deaths since this vaccine has been in use.

      Rhianna, please, your statement about the poisons being so minuscule is just ridiculous. What caused these women to have severe reactions to the shot? Saline?

      Your statement "There are hundreds of types of HPV" is really exaggerated don't you think? Hundred(S)? The most I've seen is 104. Where's your source?

      According to information the manufacturer of Gardasil, a vaccine against human papillomavirus, presented to the FDA prior to approval, if a person has already been exposed to HPV 16 or 18 prior to injection, then Gardasil increases the risk of precancerous lesions, or worse, by 44.6 percent.

      This information is not advertised, and the FDA has not recommended screening for HPV prior to vaccination. The FDA did not even demand that a warning be included in the package insert.

      According to Examiner.com:

      "Now, Merck's research is indicating that Gardasil may also 'provide cross-protection' against other strains of HPV that are closely related to HPV 16 and 18 ... This means prior exposure to these additional strains may pose an increased risk for cervical cancer also, if combined with vaccination."

      EDIT: "Pennybarr" Your statement: "Ignor the nutritionist, I've never read such rot in my life. People like him can cause great harm to others by convincing them not to get needed medical treatment" is ridiculous in light of the fact that getting an HPV shot is NOT a medical treatment, but a feeble attempt at prevention. You obviously must not be aware that iatrogenic problems are the number one cause of death in the U.S. that exceeds any one major illness! !

      I WILL NOT BE IGNORED! ! !

      In July 2004, Gary Null Ph.D, Carolyn Dean M.D., N.D, Martin Feldman M.D., Debora Rasio M.D., Dorothy Smith Ph.D. wrote a paper that revealed very disturbing facts regarding an annual iatrogenic (induced inadvertently by a physician or surgeon or by medical treatment or diagnostic procedures) death rate of 783,936 in one year. It is further disturbing to realize that as few as 5 percent and only up to 20 percent of iatrogenic acts are ever reported. This means that that iatrogenic death rate of 783,936 is much higher.

      As we look at the causes of death from degenerative diseases and other causes in America in 2004, it is obvious we are not good at solving this problem on any level. Deaths from: Heart Disease 652,000, Cancer 553,000, and Stroke 150,000.

      When comparing the iatrogenic acts of modern medicine in America with the statistical numbers of people dying of any particular disease, it is evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the United States. And when we look at the cost of these iatrogenic deaths, the cost is in the billions.

      A definitive review and close reading of medical peer-review journals, and government health statistics shows that American medicine frequently causes more harm than good. The number of people having in-hospital, adverse drug reactions (ADR) to prescribed medicine is 2.2 million. Dr. Richard Besser, of the CDC, in 1995, said the number of unnecessary antibiotics prescribed annually for viral infections was 20 million. Dr. Besser, in 2003, now refers to tens of millions of unnecessary antibiotics. The number of unnecessary medical and surgical procedures performed annually is 7.5 million. The number of people exposed to unnecessary hospitalization annually is 8.9 million.

      You need to free yourself from the lies you believe.

      good luck to you

  41. QUESTION:
    Cervical cancer jabs?
    I have lots of questions on this.

    Firstly I'm sixteen and have heard that it isn't being offered to us in school (I live in scotland). Is this true and should I go to the GP and ask to have one?
    Then I heard you have to be a virgin for the jab to work. Is this true? And (this probably shows how naive I am) Does that just mean full intercourse or does em... poking etc count?
    Also there has been some controversy over it. Is it just the whole "permission to be promiscuous" nonsense or is there health risks?
    And finally (this is just cause i'm wimpish about these things) is it less or more sore than a flu injection?

    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      I've had all three cervical cancer vaccines.

      If you want to have them done, definitely go see your GP and request them. There should be little reason for your GP to decline giving you the vaccines.

      The vaccines are most effective if you are a virgin (you haven't had full intercourse), as to why they mostly want to give the vaccines to 13 year olds, and this is because you haven't had the chance yet to contact sexually transmitted diseases that might cause the cancer. That said, any girl to about the age of 26 (at least in Australia) can have the vaccines, and just because you aren't a virgin is no reason not to have the vaccines.

      The controversy I've heard is mostly just the whole 'permission to be promiscuous' rubbish, from ignorant churchy types.

      Lastly, I found the vaccine itself hurts less than the flu injection, but people such as myself have a bad reaction (bad bruising for weeks, arm is painful to touch, so forth) to at least the first of three injections. Apparently my reaction was to the aluminium in the injection, but the second two were fine.

    Cervical cancer jab??????????????????
    Hi about 2 years ago I had part of this jab. It is in three parts but I only went to two appointments? Is this bad? Will I have to take the other two doses again for it to work?

    • ANSWER:
      You would only need the final part of this to protect you from cervical cancer and obviously these jabs have to be done before your first sexual experience to protect you from cervical cancer. Good luck.

  43. QUESTION:
    Does the third cervical cancer jab hurt?
    I've had the 1st and 2nd jab and will have the third and last one in march. The first one hurt a little bit the second one hurt quite a bit more. Does the third one hurt more? If so is it the jab or the pain afterwords that hurts? thanksx x x

  44. QUESTION:
    cervical cancer jab??? so scared?
    i really dont want to get it, but my mums making me! :( :( absolutly hate needles and i have to get THREE of them, each one is extremely painful. Do i need to get it as im not having sex till marrige so why would i need to get it?? and if uve had yours what was it like??
    im 16 nearly 17
    im completely sure im not having sex till marrige though....

    • ANSWER:
      To the MD above: May I say I think that is a disgraceful, groundless piece of advice you have given to this young girl and you should be ashamed of yourself. You are a disgrace to your profession on multiple levels.

      First of all, NONE of the injections are 'extremely' painful. The anticipation is worse than the actual sensation. There is a limitation to how much the thin needle can actually be felt. What are you feeling is the cold liquid being injected which sort of stings and not the needle itself.

      It's important you have the vaccine because it will offer you a high level of protection against a potentially devastating cancer.

      And with all respect, at 16 or 17 you cannot possibly know what the future is going to hold and what relationship you may find yourself in, in the near future. Have the vaccine. The benefits outweigh the rare risks.

      Edit:
      The poster below doesn't really know what she is talking about. The anti-vaccine brigade use fear-mongering tactics to try and put people off having the vaccine.

      NO DEATHS have been directly linked to Gardasil or Cervarix and Gardasil has just passed it's two year safety check:-
      http://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=93602

      This vaccine has been given to MILLIONS of girls worldwide with no serious problems. Do not listen to scientifically illiterate people who do not know what they are talking about. Gardasil protects against 4 types of HPV, 2 of which have an established link with cervical cancer. Overwhelming evidence shows these two types of HPV causes over 70% of cervical cancer cases.

      In the UK, Doctors and Nurses do NOT get cash bonuses for giving this vaccine.

      And 20 girls have not died from as a direct result of the vaccine. Do you see how desperate the anti-vaccine crew are? They will stoop so low as to lie about safety data, this automatically discredits them. 20 girls have not died from this vaccine, that is a false accusation which the anti-vaccine brigade cannot back up with evidence. Their claims are groundless.

      ALL the ingredients in the vaccine have been well researched and have a good safety profile.

      Edit:2
      Yes Missmara, there are a lot of FALSE claims on the Internet regarding Gardasil deaths. But the point you keep missing is that to date Gardasil hasn't been directly linked to any deaths. Anyone can say anything on the internet Missmara, but I back up my answers with evidence. It is you that is ignorant of the facts, you are listening to misinformation.

      I ALWAYS say in my posts that NOTHING in medicine is 100% and NO health care professional claims that it is, but the benefits by far outweigh the rare risks. You are more likely to get cervical cancer and die than you are of having a severe reaction to this vaccine.

      Lets your hope your daughters are lucky and never have to face cervical cancer Missmara, otherwise you are going to have to explain to them why you didn't do anything to prevent it when you had a chance...

  45. QUESTION:
    How long will the cervical cancer jab ache for?
    I have just had the first of my cervical cancer jabs and my arm is really aching. How long will this last for? I have my first driving lesson tomorrow as well.. will the jab effect that?

    • ANSWER:
      Gardisil injection is the dumbest thing you can do to yourself. I strongly suggest you do your homework on this issue and get educated, not just accept the indoctrination that is taking place.

      The good news is that your immune system typically takes care of it and you won't get any physical signs of having it. The Gardisil vaccination is a complete joke and should never be used. It has caused deaths and many other illnesses and is being promoted by the Merck company that stands to profit about billion dollars from the sale of this junk. It only addresses 4% of the over 100 viruses responsible for cervical cancer. More people are being harmed by the vaccination than the cervical cancer it is designed to help. In fact, the government now has a slush fund of money that is being paid to damaged victims and families. Over .5 billion dollars was issued last year from this fund.

      We ve already lost 18 girls, some as young as 12, in the effort to spare them from the mere possibility of cervical cancer later in life. Others have developed debilitating and potentially life-threatening ailments within weeks of being vaccinated, and others still have had spontaneous abortions or given birth to babies with birth defects.

      Also consider this: Cervical cancer usually develops in your late 20s to mid 30s. The protection period of Gardasil is estimated to be 5 years. That means, if you receive your first set of shots when you re 10 years old, you d need at least 2 to 4 additional booster shots to make it through your 30s. And THAT means you ll have to expose yourself to the potential side effects of Gardasil over and over and over again.

      But now to the real clincher, and I want you to read the following section as many times as you need to let this truly sink in

      U.S. statistics show there are 30 to 40 cervical cancer cases per year per one million women between the ages of 9 and 26, which is the age bracket that Gardasil targets (and was tested on).

      According to Merck, Gardasil was shown to reduce pre-cancers by 12.2% to 16.5% in the general population. So, instead of ending up with 30 to 40 cases of cancer per million, per year, in that age bracket, the HPV vaccine can potentially bring it down to 26 to 35 cases of cervical cancer.

      What that means is that you would have to vaccinate one million girls to prevent cervical cancer in 4 to 5 girls.

      Further, about 37 percent of women who develop cervical cancer actually die from the disease, so vaccinating ONE MILLION girls would prevent 1 to 2 DEATHS per year, at the bargain-basement price of 0 million per year, plus potentially lifelong suffering for an untold number of women, which has no price tag.

      The best thing you can do is build your immune system and avoid vaccinations that break it down and pollute your blood stream.

      Says Tom Fitton, President of Judicial Watch, Given all the questions about Gardasil, the best public health policy would be to reevaluate its safety and to prohibit its distribution to minors. In the least, governments should rethink any efforts to mandate or promote this vaccine for children.

      It s also important to know that Merck has NOT evaluated Gardasil s potential carcinogenity or genotoxicity.

      There is currently no way of knowing how the HPV vaccine affects fertility, birth defects, cancer, if it can pass through breast milk, or if it can alter your genes or the genes of your future children (genotoxicity).

      However, five subjects who got the vaccine around the time of conception had babies with birth defects, whereas no birth defects occurred among the subjects who received a placebo. Likewise, earlier last year when there were only 1,637 adverse reports, 18 of 42 women who had received the vaccine while pregnant experienced side effects ranging from spontaneous abortion to fetal abnormalities.

      Also remember that you cannot sue Merck if your child dies after receiving the vaccine.

      Drug companies have cleverly manipulated the government so that they are immune from prosecution. Instead they ve made the U.S. taxpayers foot the bill for the hundreds of millions of dollars that are paid out to families of children who are harmed or killed every year from vaccines.

      And even though it is nearly impossible to get one of these payments, more than .5 billion has been paid out to affected families already. So ponder on these stats if you haven t already taken a firm position on the vaccine issue.

      To see the VAERS data on people that died from vaccinations. Babies SIDS within 0 to 5 days of being given vaccinations. 3006 deaths reported due to the vaccinations.

      Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) & "Hot Lots" VAERS Database Online. In 1986, Congress passed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (PL-99-660) that among other things required healthcare providers to report vaccine reactions to a centralized reporting system. As a result the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) to which parents, physicians and vaccine manufacturers could report adverse events.

  46. QUESTION:
    Can i have the cervical cancer jab?
    hey I am 18 years old living in the UK...I am not very sexually active at all and have had no history of STI's.
    I would really like to have the jab even though my family has no history of cervical cancer at all.
    I just want to feel safe...am I too old to have it?

    • ANSWER:
      It is not a cervical cancer vaccine. It is an HPV vaccine. Family history has little to do with getting cervical cancer.

      Most cervical cancers are HPV positive and so are many anal cancers and head and neck cancers. The vaccine does not keep you safe from these cancers, it makes you less likely to get them. The vaccine is recommended for females who are not yet sexually active.

  47. QUESTION:
    Help ~ Cervical Cancer Jab?
    i have this jab this friday coming - i dont want it and basically im being forced to have it so can anyone tell me what it actually does and whats in it because im terrified and i hate needles and doctors/nurses and ive never had a jab/injection before :/

    • ANSWER:
      it ok don't worry about it hun!
      well 1st you get sent to a nurse who talks to you about the jab and cancer and asks you questions like what your name and date of birth.
      then you can ask questions about the jab . after all that the nurse asks you which arm you want it in and tells you not to tense your arm (as if you do it hurts more because the needle will go in your muscle) and then the nurse tell you to look at the wall and if you are very bad with needles you can ask her to talk to you while they put the needle in your arm.the needle is in your arm for about 5 seconds and then its all over! they will give you i pad to stop your arm bleeding and then you go to a waiting room for 10 to 15 minutes just to check your ok (in the room there are nurse just in case) then you go back to what you were doing before and its all over!! don't worry i had it done this time last year and i was so scared! but it was ok! if you are really really bad you can take a friend in with you but please don't worry it is ok! :) good luck! :) xxxxx

  48. QUESTION:
    i have had 3 cervical cancer jabs?
    does this mean i won't be able to get it, or there will be less risk?

    • ANSWER:
      There is no such thing as a cervical cancer jab.
      It is an HPV vaccine.
      If you have not been sexually active before you had all 3 vaccines then it protects you against the 4 strains of HPV in the vaccine. It does not protect you against cervical cancer, it decreases your risk by protecting you against some strains of HPV.

  49. QUESTION:
    Cervical cancer jabs, help =(?
    I'm 17 and a few weeks ago I received a letter from my doctors about having 3 injections over a period of 6 months to prevent it.

    I'm absolutely petrified of needles but obviously if it's going to prevent cancer I realise that i'm gonna have to go for it.

    However I read on internet articles that some people have died from it and they are still at the testing stage.

    It's put me off even more.
    I don't want to be some guineapig.

    I honestly know how important these injections are and i'm not looking for people to say omg this is cancer we're talking about.

    I'd like some advice from people who have had the jab or know anything about it.

    I'm really worried, thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Nobody likes needles, but yes these are very safe injections to have. They prevent most cervical cancers, which are deadly diseases.

      The HPV vaccine is not in the experimental phases, the FDA does not permit drugs in the experimental phases onto the American market. It has passed clinical trials with human subjects.

      Some young women have died shortly after the injection, on the other hand, young women die every day from a variety of causes. Young women who die shortly after getting the injections likely die at this time through a coincidence, not as a result of getting the shot. The rate of ANY deaths is pretty low regardless, as healthy young women tend to be unlikely to simply drop dead. On the other hand, you are VERY likely to get cervical cancer, which is an awful disease the can be fatal.

      You are not a guinea pig. It sounds to me like you are looking for a reason to avoid getting immunized against a terrible disease due to disliking needles. Again, nobody likes them, but this is an important injection series to get. I had them and I survived just fine, and so have millions of other girls and women. No worries.

  50. QUESTION:
    Should I get the cervical cancer jab?
    I never got the Jab at school but i'm coming up to 17 now and was wondering if there was much point in getting it? I am still a virgin so it should be fully affective but are there any major risks in having it done? i saw on the news a girl died from it and also it doesn't always work. i need to make a decision as i think time is running out.

    • ANSWER:
      The Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) has no direct link to cervical cancer. The vaccine Gardasil may increase the risk of precancerous cervical lesions by an alarming 44.6 % in some women. The vaccine may be far more dangerous to the health of women than doing nothing at all.

      "The FDA news release of March 31, 2003 acknowledges that "most infections (by HPV) are short-lived and not associated with cervical cancer"

      A healthy 14 year old died within hours of the cervical vaccine. A pathologist declared a "malignant chest tumour" was to blame...just coincidentally and suddenly killing her within hours of the vaccine.

      Cervical cancer vaccine continues killing young girls like Natalie Morton; is pathology report a pharma cover-up?:
