Why Do You Need The HPV (Gardasil)

For years, women have been subjected to multiple Pap smears, colposcopies with cervical biopsy and Conization of the cervix (removal of a large part of the cervix) because of a sexually transmitted disease, the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV).

This disease is passed from men to women with no effect on men but devastating effects for women.Unfortunately, HPV is the ‘gift that keeps on giving’; men have unprotected sex then pass one of at least seventy strains of the virus onto women who then carry it for life until stress or anything that suppresses their immune system creates genital warts (condyloma acuminatum) or pre-cancer of the cervix (dysplasia) form.

All along, men often will live symptom free, but women are stuck with the stigma of HPV potentially causing a problem at any time.The HPV vaccine does not cause paralysis, cervical cancer, or for you to contract the HPV virus, this is just internet non-sense.If everyone in the United States got the vaccine before becoming sexually active, cervical cancer would be eradicated.

Best of all insurance currently covers the vaccine from age nine through twenty-six years old.It is even helpful for women who already have experienced Pap smear problems to come in for a consultation.
