My daughter decided to have the shot as well as Depo.
I am still years away from this one, thank goodness as my DD is only 12. I know that she will not be getting the Depo on my watch. I know far too many people who have had trouble after getting it.
France and Israel have stopped recomending gardisil due to all the adverse events....another gardisil is slated to come out soon, with 9strains included instead of four.
Mine did not get Gardisil. Way too many friends of my dd's or neighbors had side effects.
Stop her periods? How does that not mess her up hormonally?
Has she tried a variety of tampons? Playtex blooms outward like a flower. Maybe that would work.
No way would I mess with my hormonal balance at any age.
Quoting proudmother5946: I was reading up on the gardasil. The doctor was recommending it, but then I saw all the side effects, some severe. I think I'll hold off on that. The reason she got the depo was because she can't wear tampons at all. Seems she has a really long vagina and even the doctor couldn't get it high enough. She plays sports and the pad just doesn't work out. So we'll try the depo to stop her periods for awhile.
Funny...my kids' pedi is VERY by the book. He never asks about vaccinations. He says it's time for this and that and away we go. BUT, when my girl was scheduled for it, both the nurse and then later the doc asked "Are we doing the gardasil today?"
Hmmm...nope. Nope we're not and thanks for asking.
It's part of the immunisations they get at school here. My DD20, DS17 and DD14 have all had it, no reactions, I asked them last time this thread popped up on here and they all said that no one at school had any reactions to it.
we did nt get it
