Sorry I can’t help, but I’d love to hear your experience on it. I’ve thought about implanon, but I’m not too sure.

I haven’t tried implanon (I hear they numb the area first though?), but I have gotten Gardasil.  It’s like every other shot when you get it.  A little pinch and you can feel the injection going in.  My arm was sore at the injection site for a week or so after, but it’s not bad at all.  Good luck!

Is there a benefit to getting Gardasil if you are getting married?

@Jacqi- In my opinion there is. You never know for 100% certain who your SO has been with/will be with. You never know if you will become widowed and find another man in your future who again, you won’t know who they have been with. Most of the time men show ZERO symptoms. And also, while it’s an awful, awful thought, if you were ever raped, you just don’t know.

My mom had HPV. She was married to my dad for 11 years before they got a divorce when she found out he was cheating on her. She did not suspect it AT ALL and it was a huge blow to her. A couple years later they found precancerous cells caused by HPV. There is no telling for sure that it was from my dad since she had since entered another serious relationship, but, it still stands that you just never ever know, no matter how much you trust your SO.

I haven’t had either done but whenever I get a shot, I don’t look at the needle, look the other way and breathe slowly!

Yeah, don’t watch videos of things like that!  I’m glad it wasn’t as bad as you thought it would be!

gardasil hurt for me… but i think it’s just like any other shot you get… sore a bit after… but heals pretty fast

Gardasil did not hurt too much when I got it and I hate getting shots (which is strange because I have mutlple piercings that didn’t hurt a bit). The best advice is to stay as relaxed as (relatively) possible when getting a shot – it hurts less that way.
