Cervical Cancer Vaccination

The question of a vaccine aimed at combating tumors of the reproductive system, is of concern to many modern women. The so-called vaccine against cervical cancer appeared recently, in 2008. We owe her invention to a group of American scientists. Today, anyone who wants can take root from a terrible disease, but before taking such a measure, it is necessary to find out in detail exactly what it is.

It is known that one of the most common causes of this disease is infection with human papillomavirus, which is transmitted in two ways: sexual and domestic. You can become infected not only through unprotected sexual contact with a carrier, but also through the use of certain household items, clothing, etc.

External manifestations of the virus are as follows:

  • skin warts (papillomas). This disease should not be confused with normal warts - benign skin lesions of non-viral origin. How to distinguish the "dangerous" papilloma from the usual? Viral papilloma can occur on the skin on any part of the body and quickly pass without any specific treatment. Activation of these warts occurs with a decrease in immunity. Normal skin papilloma can accompany a person throughout life, without causing him any special inconvenience. If desired, such a wart is removed by a dermatologist;
  • condyloma - a small papilla-like outgrowth appearing on the mucous membranes of a person may appear in the vagina, on the head of the penis, around the urethra, etc. Condyloma is usually not visible and does not manifest itself at all, you can detect it yourself by examining your genitals for irregularities in the mucous membrane. Flat condyloma, localized in the cervix, may be accompanied by mucosal dysplasia, leukoplakia, erosion.

More than seventy human papillomavirus viruses are known, but only a few of them contribute to the onset of uterine cancer (types 6, 11, 16, and 18). An expert can determine the presence of such an infection in the body.

The vaccine against cervical cancer is called Gardasil; it contains the human papillomavirus protein, as well as its auxiliary components: sodium chloride, aluminum, sodium borate, polysorbate. In fact, this vaccine involves the introduction into the human body of a small number of cells of the virus itself, with the result that it produces antibodies that do not allow infection to occur in the future. Therefore, a vaccine against cervical cancer is more competently called vaccination against human papillomavirus.

Gardasil is indicated for the prevention of genital warts, cancer of the vagina, vulva and, in fact, the cervix. The vaccine is administered intramuscularly to girls aged 9 to 16 years, as well as young healthy women who have reached 18-26 years of age.

The drug has the following contraindications:

  • hypersensitivity to its components;
  • poor blood clotting;
  • taking certain medications;
  • the presence of certain diseases of the genital organs.

It should be said that the introduction of a vaccine against cervical cancer in the body of a woman with the human papillomavirus is unacceptable, since in this case the probability of the onset of the disease sharply increases to almost 45%. Therefore, before you go and get yourself vaccinated, you should undergo a thorough examination for the presence of infection.

In addition, the vaccine is also not recommended for women who already have pathological changes in the cervical mucosa.

As side effects after the introduction of Gardasil can be observed: itching, slight swelling and soreness at the site of vaccination, fever, headache. Most often, as with any vaccination, the patient has one or two of several side effects. All symptoms can occur immediately in immunocompromised persons.

Some non-medical evidence suggests that Gardasil has a significant effect on the human psyche. After its introduction, a woman of any age can become nervous, sharper in relation to relatives. And some sources claim that the cervical cancer vaccine is just a new way to make money for the trustful patient producers.

Cancer is an unpredictable disease, the causes of its occurrence are still not exactly clear, and therefore there can be no 100% effective vaccine for it. Every woman should decide for herself whether she should take such a measure as the introduction of the drug into her own body, the mechanism of action of which has not yet been fully studied. Perhaps a more effective way to prevent tumors of the reproductive system is to regularly undergo a gynecological examination, because any, even a very dangerous disease, can be defeated if you start to deal with it in time.

3515cj: The European Chemicals Agency had a lot to say about Sodium borate. "as toxic for reproduction category 27, R60-61 (May impair fertility. May cause harm to the unborn child)." "Repr. 1B; H360-FD (May damage fertility. May damage the unborn child)" It amazes me that people are still led to believe that it is safe. How on God's green earth can it be safe?

3515cj: Polysorbate 80 The National Toxicology Program by the Department of Health and Human Services has information about testing for Toxicity Effects "potent cardiac depressant" "a coronary vasodilatory effect" "there was equivocal evidence of carcinogenicity" "showed 40% incidence of metastasis".

3515cj: I have been researching this vaccine since Feb. of 2007 and I can tell you in all honesty that this vaccine scientifically has problems. Aluminum which is the adjuvant is a definite neurotoxin. SPI Pharma, Inc.had this to say "Accumulation of aluminum in the body may result in neurological damage, anemia and bone softening."

D S: I was meant to get this today but I refused it and now I am scared. I could go down to the clinic but I legit have a needle phobia

Tonya Antony: Not all cervical cancers are caused by HPV so women still need pap smears. Moreover, cervical cancer is quite rare to begin with. The HPV vaccine doesn't protect against all strains. How long does the vaccine protect you?
