Cervical Cancer Jab Question? (female)?

Postby Dael » Sat Oct 07, 2017 2:42 pm

Hi, so I'm due to an appointment for a cervical cancer jab the day after tomorrow, but I'm worried it may not be good for me?

Will it do anything to damage my health? Like will it stop me getting my period, or give me irregular periods? Is it safe? And, will it stop me being able to have children when I'm older?

I know it's a lot of questions, but I'm really worried.

Have you had this jab yet? And if so, is it OK?

P.S. I'm 14 years old.

Thank you :)

You really don't need to worry- every 14 year old girl in the country now gets the vaccine. So no, obviously it won't stop you having children, it won't do anything to your periods, yes it is safe, and no it won't do anything to your health. The only thing it will do is prevent you from getting some of the main types of human papilloma virus which is the main cause of cervical cancer.

Cervical Cancer jab - I assume you mean a pap smear

those are very safe and an effective way of detecting not only cancer but infections, abnormal cells before cancer develops, and other cervical issues.

You will not have your periods stop because of this, you can have children after this and you period will not all of a sudden become irregular because of it.
You are young to have it, but I guess there is a medical need for it, or you have become sexually active.

If you are sexually active, may i suggest that you tell your doctor so that your doctor can advise you on how to protect yourself from diseases, including those diseases which start cervical cancer in the first place.

dont worry, and good luck.
