  • I will when she is old enough, my sister had to have some cells removed from her cervix in HS and I don't want my daughter to have to worry about that. I know some women that have had HPY and now can't have kids because of how much they had to have removed.

  • Yes but not at the recommended ages (here is 9 for the first dose) I will start it at 12. Which is what is recommended by the company that makes it.

  • NO! it has not been on the market long enough for me to see all possible side effects and that scares me.

  • That is true Cueball- That is alos part of the reason I am putting it off until they are older. DS is only 7 so another 5 years of research before he is old enough.

  • DD has special needs. I've heard that the side-effects can be worse with girls like her so I've decided against the vaccine.
