Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is a group of more than 200 viruses amongst which more than 40 are spread through sexual contact. The HPV VACCINE protect against infection caused with Human Papillomavirus. Amongst the types of HPV types 6 and 11 cause genital warts, HPV type 16 and 18 cause cervical cancer, and HPV types 31,33,45,52 and 58 cause other cancers like cervix, anus, vulva, penis, or throat.
HPV vaccination is usually recommended at age 11 or 12. Vaccination can start at the age of 9. For age group of 9-14 the vaccine is given in 2 shots whereas for age group of 15-45 the vaccine is given in 3 shots. The most common side effect of the vaccine is temporary pain and redness at the site of injection. Other mild side effects include headache, nausea, and pain in the abdomen, slight fever, muscle pain, fainting, and diarrhea. Chewing of tobacco or smoking frequently can increase the risk of HPV infection.
The HPV vaccine stimulates the body to produce antibodies that act upon later infection of HPV and binds to the virus and inhibit the infection. This vaccine doesn’t prevent any other sexually transmitted diseases or treat existing HPV infections. The HPV vaccines are highly effective when given before initial exposure to the virus.
Although HPV infections are cured by its own, few strains of this virus can cause serious conditions.
