I am a pro vaccinating mom but this one is causing me issues. From what I was told by a nurse, HPV cause genital warts in boys/males (which is prevented using a condom, which I also push). My son is 14 and I really am thinking twice about even getting this one done. It has just been recommended for boys in the last few years. I am ok with vaccines that have been around for 30 years but not one that is brand new. Does anyone even know what that affects are on boys? I have a friend that told me I was a bad mom for not getting this vaccine. I told her my son could learn to use a condom and prevent many other STD's and AIDS. I asked her if she researched what the affects are on a boy. The later affects. Could he become sterile for one? She said, No but I don't want him getting genital warts. Hmmm....I just need others perspectives on this one. NO BASHING!!!!! Or I will delete the post.
