Postby Elmore » Sun Oct 08, 2017 9:26 pm

Hello,

Because im REALLY REALLY scared of needles i was determine not to have my cervical cancer jab in school today and when the nurse explained what could happen and showed me pictures i just thought i need to have this done and she took me to the front of the que to get it over and done with and sat with me holding my hand, i was shaking and crying a little and as the needle was on me, the nurse who was with me was like "count to ten, count to 10", "I can' i can't" i tried my hardest and got to 3 and then it was done, i was sooo scared and sooo determine not to have it done but now im so proud ive had it done.

You SHOULD be proud of yourself! Im really scared of needles too (actually, i wasnt that scared before the first jab, but after them all, im now terrified, nothing went wrong, they just scare me now!) I dont know about yours, but my arm ached for quite a while afterwards, but im glad ive had them done :) Ellie xx

No, I don't think I'm going to get it. I've looked it up and some people have died from it. And I'm planning on saving myself for marriage, so I don't really need it.

No, it isn't caused directly by sex, but it has been linked to HPV which is sexually transmitted.

I forgot the name of it.. oh wait, it's gardasil, right? Yeah my parents decided not to get it for me after they heard about people dying,etc. after getting the vaccine. I'm saving myself for marriage, so no harm done.

lmfao i got mine on monday!

i waited over an hour to get it done, then when I got in the room bitty I started crying. She tried to comfort me, then asked if it was ok to go ahead and I said yes.

Then she said "count to 10" so I did... until I realised she was gonna stick the needle in and I screamed "NO!" and then she got people in to hold me still but then eventually the needle was in and it didn't even hurt.

i'm proud of you!;p

No, I don't think the vaccine is entirely safe. There's no long term effects record for it so who knows if something will happen 5 or 10 years from now.
But good job with facing your fears and getting the shot =]

Yep I took one and I got really really sick and passed out from it so I didn't take the other two that I was supposed to get.

ella: cancer isnt caused by sex...

edit: i know, but i was just saying that not all cervical cancer is linked to it... i dont know much about the vaccination itself, but ive known many women who have had cervical cancer who didnt have HPV
