My daughter has had two shots and today she was subpost to get the third one but i will not do it. I don't know if i should get the other one? All the things i am reading i don't think i will. I don't want to take that chance.She is 14.
I am in the same situation I got shot 1 and 2 but am scared to get shot 3 because a few months ago I was hospitalized for a pelvic infection. Now Im 23 years old and never had any issues like this until after these vaccines. Im not going to get the thrid series.

My daughter who is 26 years old had her third vaccination 3 weeks ago.
4 days after the vaccination she started to complain of headaches and severe leg pains. Three weeks later she is still in severe pain-and the only thing that she has had that is out of the ordinary is the third Gardasil vaccination.
As a mother I feel really guilty that I encouraged my daughter to have this.
I am certain in my own mind that there is no other cause for this severe pain.

I am working on a story on Gardasil and looking for someone in Arkansas who has had the vaccine. Can you please contact me at [email protected] or give me your email address. We would love to talk to you. Thanks. Heather

My daughter was recently hospitalized for numbness and pain, loss of vision, along with paralysis. She also was not able to keep her balance or walk without assistance. She was given 2 rounds of steroids. The docters ordered every possible test in hopes of finding a diagnosis. Diagnosis Given: Post virus which probably caused octicular migranes. Although her symptoms have improved she is still experiencing numbness and loss of feeling in different parts of her body. I do not have the peace a mother should feel. Something is not right!

It is very unlikely that your daughter would get HPV from getting the vaccination. I understand your anger, however, the doctors should have run a blood test first to ensure that there was no HPV present prior to administration of the shot. (Although this is far from customary) Without that, no one can draw any conclusions about how your daughter got HPV. The good thing is that Gardasil is protective against three types of HPV, so even though your daughter may have one type, she is still protected against the other two types.

I am also a concerned parent. I am also an educated parent. I am going to school to pursue a career in health care. Over the past few years it has come to my attention that our bodies are have an immune system. If they can fight off diseases, they will. If not, get treated. The polio vaccine caused the HIV virus. Transferred it from chimps into humans. Drug companies still use chimp organs and tissues for their vaccines. What do you think they put into vaccines? They put virus' inactive and active along with mercury, aluminum, fetal tissue, pig and bovine particles. Formaldehyde. Do you want these things to go into your child? I have inactive TB and will be starting the 9 month medication in december. Remember that food plays a huge role in how healthy we are. Raw and Organic is always best. Pesticides kill bugs and are toxic to humans as well. They build up toxicity in our bodies and our immune system takes a large hit and it can't do it's job to fight off bacteria, and virus'. Gardisil is the new craze for the drug companies. It is the most expensive vaccine on the market. The three shot series costs a total of around $900. You need to do research before you give your child any vaccine as your doctor is educated by the drug companies because the drug companies rely on the doctors to push their products.

What good does it do to save a live if they have to live in misery and pain. Get real! Think with your mind. Glad nothing happened to you but do you think that vaccines are safe? Do some research. How do you think HIV came about? From the polio virus. Cancer tumors increase in Russia after one of the men trying to test his polio vaccine had an active virus that they couldn't kill in it. It was known and given anyway. Drug companies make money off of this stuff. Why do you think they don't push natural healing? Because they can't make money off of it! I am educated on the subject. You should get educated. Things aren't good just because the Dr. says so. The doctors are educated about the drugs by the drug companies.

I fell and broke my leg after recieving an injection... musta been the shot... OH, and I was really thirsty after the shot, it musta dehydrated me... seriously people, not every little thing that happens after the injection is a direct result. Correlation, possibly, causation, NO!! There is a big difference. Educate yourselves people!! and i don't mean believing everything you read on the internet!!
Funny how you don't hear of these stories from other vaccines, isn't it? I'm sorry but there are just too many coincidences that point to something is wrong.

All parents want to believe their daughters don't have sex, so yes, it's obviously easier to blame your daughters getting HPV on the vaccine. Wake up, children are having sex at very young ages these days and more that 80% of people have a strain of HPV. It's not hard to 'catch'. We send our kids to school they get colds. It's all part of life. The vaccine doesn't cause HPV. Having sexual contact with an infected person does- and this means sexual contact, not just sexual intercourse.

My daughter has not gotten her period since she received her second shot. She was regular every month like clock-work before the shot. Has anyone else had similar circumstances?

After reading all these post, I am frightened about having this vaccination. I recived my last one about 3 months ago, I have had no symptoms at all. However, I've heard that it may cause sterilization in females? If anyone has any information about this, please reply back! I am only 16 and I have my whole life to live. I plan on getting married and having children, but I am afriad after getting this vaccine, I will not. Please, if anyone has any information, tell me!
Thanks!
Emma.

I am 18 and I received my first Gardasil shot around November 4th. I had extreme pain at the injection site, which I believed to be normal, but then that night I started my period... 2 weeks early. This may not seem like a big deal, but I normally have periods every 32 days so this was EXTREMELY early for me. While this definitely could have been a coincidence, but I just think it's weird that I've never had a period early. Also most of my periods last about 1 week at the most, this one lasted for 2 weeks.

So sure this could be a coincidence, but I did more research and it turns out girls with ovarian cysts have had several complications with the vaccine. I had a cyst rupture on my ovary just over a year ago, so I'm thinking it's not a coincidence.

I'm due to get my other shot in January (?) and am seriously considering not getting it. Does anyone know if it's safe to discontinue the vaccination like that? Please let me know.

Insistant pcp said my 11 year old and mostly all girls my daughters age were getting injected. I upon her recomendation said yes. My 11 year olds checkup appt. she had Flu, Gardasil and Hep A, and is not herself. Vomiting, soreness, aches in legs, increased heart rate, stomach pain and diarrea, dizziness and difficulty breathing in addition to being asthmatic.. Wish I had researched the Gardasil and knew then what I am learning now!

If 80% of the population is infected with HPV at any given time, it can be linked to any and every kind of cancer out there.
I'd like to see INDEPENDENT studies done on HPV being linked to cervical cancer NOT paid for by the drug companies or anybody invested in the vaccine.
After reading this article "Gardasil Vaccination Results in Three Outbreaks of Genital Warts in Fiji School Children"

www. lifesitenews. com/ldn/2008/nov/08111803. html

I do not feel the vacicne is safe or effective. I also do not believe HPV causes cervical cancer. I believe we've been lied to so big pharma can make a profit and be in the top of the fortune 500 for yet another year...follow the money

My daughter also began having seizures one week to the day of receiving her third gardasil injection. Since that date she has had a total of 6 seizures with no known or identifiable cause. She also has complained of vision problems and just overall not feeling well. She is now taking an anti-seizure medication that has serious implications if she ever wants to get pregnant. I am going to contact a chiropractor in our area whom I've learned has a homeopathic antidote. The Merck HPV product under the name of Gardasil is not safe!!!
My daughter took the last shot I believe in the summer of 08. Since then she has complained of a mirad of different symptoms that arn't necesarily connected. Chest issues, which the cardiologist said was a precordial catch. Leg and arms feel as though they are being squeezed. Headaches, drowsiness and although undiagnosed yet seizure like symptoms. Thought maybe it was due to an ADHD medicine, but now i am wondering. Any real statistics out there to say how long after a gardasil shot that these can or cannot occur?

Walton,

Please Contact Gabby Swank and her family here in Wichita. Gabby took the shots and went from a active 15 year old, cheerleader, very active to not being able to go to school, 10 to 12 seizures a day, two strokes etc. etc. etc. Gardasil is killing our young women. I beg you to take your doctor to a nurologist immediately.

My daughter is 18 and completed the Gardisil series in June of 2008. In September she was having severe abdominal pain and passing gravel. It was suspected that she had a kidney stone but a CT scan showed no sign of kidney stones.

In February 2009 she had her yearly pap smear and it tested positive for HPV. That same week she again had severe abdominal pain and passing gravel, another CT scan was done and didn't indicate a kidney stone. She passed what looked to be a white stone but when tested the lab said it wasn't a kidney stone.

These issues along with Urinary Tract Infections all started after completing the Gardisil series, has anyone else had any of these same problems?

She is having a coposcopy on Wednesday and we are hoping that it will show that the previous HPV result was a false positive. I have wondered if the vaccine can cause a false positive and wish that she had had a pap prior to starting the series.

If I had it to do again I would not have her have this vaccine, I would choose to have her have more frequent pap smears.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, we are at our wits end!

All new drug combinations should be questioned, because many have appeared after some kind of network began installing cemeteries near streambeds in the late 1950s (as proof there are no child monarchs?)-- perhaps as a cult action using prior knowledge about the said-to-be-Irish buried without coffins just recently unearthed near Philadelphia, PA. Not only have more costly drugs been formulated, but such interrments routinely rot despite a population's best efforts to purify the cemetery areas, and a wide range of chemical combinations can surface from the definitely dead which, when mentally passed along, might be found in the next pill bottle handed out.[in Stuart, FL]

We have been to 14 doctors in the last 8 months. My daughter passes stones, gravel, debris almost daily has not been to school this year. she has severe pain on her spine. No doctor can figure out what is wrong I am horified, could gardisil be the answer? Please if your child has similar symptoms contact me [email protected]
