  • Do some research on the subject rather than asking for strangers opinions. I personally would not. Many girls have been harmed by it.

  • Yes I think you should. I had mine done when I was in high school. No bad reactions to it or anything like that...although I do remember the 3rd shot hurting the worst. It's worth it in my opinion and as far as I know, most insurance companies cover it.

  • Look into it and see what your opinion is. Our opinion really shouldn't matter in the way you choose to raise your girls.


    That being said, I did get the shot when I was 18. When I was 21 I was diagnosed with HPV. It went away on its own and never bothered me. For most girls it goes away on its own and doesn't cause any trouble. The shot only protects against a few strains of HPV. Considering there are thousands of strains of HPV, the chances of your daughters getting it is still high even if they get the shot.
