Has any one let their daughter have the HPV vaccine , and if so, did they have any side effects?

yes dd1 has had it. No side effects at all, but a lowered cahnce of developing cervical cancer.

And no side effects.

You need to read the pack info leaflet (will be available online) if you want to see the actual, rather than anecdotal, side effect rate.

My DD has suffered from nausea and maliase since having her hpv jab. It could be coincidental but I have since found out that some girls do have long lasting side effects. Sorry to link the daily fail.
I am normally pro vaccine but I have since found out that the vaccine may only protect for 5-7 years anyway so I do regret letting DD have it.
To give a balanced view all of DDs friends have had the hpv jab without side effects, so I think we have just been unlucky.

Have read all of material sent from school, just thought I'd check. I don't think she's having it. Thanks everyone.

Yes - my daughter has been ill for more than 8 years - has POTS and dysautonomia. Reacted straight after 1st vaccination then worse after 2nd vaccination, GP said she should not have the 3rd.

I had it and no issues. What it protects against is far more dangerous than any possible side effects.

I have hpv which caused pre cancerous cell change in my cervix requiring treatment and annual smears following. I do worry about my much increased risk of developing cervical cancer as a result.

This from the cdc;
Each year, about 39,800 new cases of cancer are found in parts of the body where human papillomavirus (HPV) is often found. HPV causes about 31,500 of these cancers.

This from WHO:
Two HPV types (16 and 18) cause 70% of cervical cancers and precancerous cervical lesions.

This from cancer research uk:
About 3,100 cases of cervical cancer are diagnosed in the UK each year. Nearly all are related to HPV. HPV can also cause cancers in other genital areas, like the vagina, vulva, penis, and anus, as well as some types of cancer of the mouth and throat.

Both my daughters will be having the vaccination when they are old enough.

Please read up well. Some children appear to have been very damaged by this vaccine.

Interesting referenced facts about the HPV vaccination in this letter of complaint to the BBC in relation to their coverage of HPV vaccination
