    sharona216:  Not all horror stories on google are true, even if they are the chances of that happening is low. Where is your proof that it’s a money making scheme? Did you get your MD from the Google Institute of Medicine? It’s best to consult with REAL medical practioners instead of relying on google and spreading false information.

    Of course I got it. Reducing your risk of ending up with cervical CANCER seems like a damn good reason to get it. But then again I also don’t want polio, tetanus, diphtheria, rubella, measles, mumps, whooping cough or rabies and have been vaccinated against all those diseases as well.

    It’s very sad when you hear of children dying of diseases that are easily preventable with a vaccine and even sadder that they had no say and it was their parents who made that decision for them. 

    janeblack:  i think you can continue where you left off. Good luck with your biopsy.

    I didn’t. I now have HPV. 

    That being said some of my friends did get vaccinated and still have it now, it seems to be incredibly common. I also had a friend who had an awful reaction to the vaccine and claims she’s still messed up from it, intense migraines, dizziness and the like.

    mus1ca1xo:  I got it. Also, for what it’s worth: I got the vaccine, but my best friend did not. She was diagnosed with HPV last year, soooo…

    For those of you who ask why wouldn’t you? Because of being high risk for having a serious adverse reaction.

    I’ve had bad reactions to multiple vaccines in the past, including some that were quite serious.  I’ve had doctors tell me not to get them.  I had to consult with the province’s medical office of health on an issue – they are very much pro-vaccine.  Due to my personal risk, they have stated I am no longer to get general preventative vaccination, I am only to get one if I am exposed to something, a vaccine can help, and the risks then appear to be worth it.

    misskate18:  Glad to put you at ease a little with my story.  I had the biopsy and had to go back in 6 months for a 2nd pap, thankfully after that one and the one after that, I got the all clear and they decided I could go back to the normal one-3 years.
