  • I had the Guardasil shot and I specifically remember the third one hurting MUCH worse than the first 2. I am fine. Maybe there is more dosage in the last shot or a different type that makes it hurt more. If you want to call the doc than I see no harm in that, but I'm just letting you know that my last shot hurt a great deal more than the first 2.

  • Mine was the same way. My last 2 hurt more than the first... Make sure she is using that arm more to keep the circulation up. It will help it be less sore...

  • The 3rd one is the pits. I think it hurts the worse and mine hurt for 7 days (a week) after the initial shot. She'll be fine. As long as there is no fever, vomiting, etc. then she will be fine. They hurt a lot but if it protects from cervical cancer, she will be glad she suffered those few days.
