Not sexually active, should I still get the cervical cancer shot?

Postby kirkley36 » Wed Mar 21, 2012 8:57 am

I am 16 yrs old and I am still a virgin, I went to the doctors and she asked me if I wanted to get the cervical cancer shot, I said no because I wasn't sure of what it was at the time..Should I get it? Does it hurt?

the best time to get it is before you are sexually active, girls as young as 13 are being offered it

You can still get cervical cancer even if you never have sex. There is a point sometime in your 20s where you are too old to get the shot anymore, so I'd say go for it. It's just like a regular shot, it's no big deal. I wish I could have gotten it.
