Cervical Cancer Vaccine Still Effective After Being Sexually Active?

Postby Clennan » Sun May 28, 2017 3:51 am

yes, the vaccine still works.
it makes no difference whether you are sexually active or not as having sex does not make you more likely to get cancer.
If you have any questions or doubts about the vaccine, ask the nurse who gives you the 3rd jag.
They will have the answers, and guarraneed you will not be the 1st person to have asked them, they will be very helpful.

Cervical Cancer Vaccine Still Effective After Being Sexually Active?

in case you're already sexually energetic you would be able to have already got the HPV virus . . whilst you evaluate that's sexually transmitted . . the vaccine is meant to guard a female from getting the virus . . yet once you have already got the virus than the vaccine won't do you too lots reliable and could be a waste of time. even however I comprehend that there are 4 different HPV viruses that the vaccine protects against . . so that's achieveable that it would desire to learn you a dash in case you have no longer already gotten all 4 viruses. that's the viruses that placed you at an improved threat for cervical maximum cancers . . yet once you have already got the virus there is no longer lots you're able to do now different than decide for accepted verify united statesand be examined each year with a PAP smear (they do a rapid scrape and verify for pre maximum cancers or maximum cancers cells on the cervix)

Cervical Cancer Vaccine Still Effective After Being Sexually Active?

The vaccine protects against hpv virus, Human papillomavirus, which is a pre-disposition to cervical cancer. i.e. you get this virus and it can lead to cervical cancer.


If you already have this sexually transmitted virus, then the vaccine is useless to you.


If you do not already have this virus, the vaccine will protect you.

Some of the very most unpleasant things that you'll have on the body are moles, warts, or epidermis tags.  Many people head to the medical practioners, but largely the doctor may guide them to use an over-the-counter treatment. Some function, but several aren't as successful as we'd like in this is way Moles, Warts and Skin Tags Removal process from here https://tr.im/5MTVd has got to change all this.

Moles, Warts and Skin Tags Removal system may be worth every money you invest in it and if you're unsatisfied by the progress within 60 times you are certain to get all your hard earned money straight back, a safe deal no doubt.

The largest energy of Moles, Warts and Skin Tags Removal process is that most techniques suggested are organic, so are there no problems about undesirable effects.

Cervical Cancer Vaccine Still Effective After Being Sexually Active?

The vaccination is more effective if you have never gotten the human papillomavirus (HPV) virus . . which nearly every person who has ever been sexually active gets . . thus the reason it is recommended to give the vaccination before getting the virus. That does not mean that you cannot still have some benefit from getting the shot . . especially if even after being sexually active you have not yet 'caught' the virus . . so go ahead and continue with your vaccination schedule as there may be some protection for you.

At 18 you may not be as well protected against HPV even with the vaccination . . generally the earlier the vaccination is given the more time it will have to stimulate the immune system. Incidentally there are more than one type of HPV virus and the vaccination will protect against most of them (but not all of them) . . so even though you are older and sexually active you may not have encountered all varieties of the HPV vaccination yet so you may benefit after all.
