Gardasil is being introduced into UK for its first time and for girls mainly aged 12. I looked at birth rates of teens in USA and found dramatic drops since it was introduced there and all time lows of teenage pregnancies. A good thing or a sign of Gardafil causing STERILITY?

I have had the shot and I had a baby? I think the decreasing pregnancy rates come down to education and contraception. Teenage girls are encouraged to use birth control more than ever before. I think it's just a coincidence.

All of the girls in my group of friends had it when it first came out in Australia. I have a few health issues however they are caused by a pre existing condition I had prior to the shot. All of the girls have gone on to have babies, most of them more than one and they have no health issues that I am aware of.

It might not have been when it first came out, but it was when it was free for women under 25 and there was a big government campaign pushing it. I think I was actually 24 at the time, which makes it 6 years ago. I can't remember exactly.

I had it at about the age of 21 and I also have had a child since. However, I also only got it because it was recommended by my doctor. Going back if I knew what I knew now about the side affects and all I wouldn't have gotten it. I think that is such a young age for these shots and it's just another bank deposit for Big Pharma.

how ~OLD were you then? 12 and 4 years ago? I think not. So you older teens were ok from it. Do you think vaccines vary even in one batch. I was concerned about vaccines and nurse opened new batch cos of it. Made me MORE frightened for kid

I had it about 4 years before I had my daughter, yes I had all 3. If my daughter was a teenager right now, I wouldn't let her have it, only because there is not enough research for my liking to trust it. I don't necessarily believe the controversy but I would prefer to see what the outcome is in ten years or so. When I had it I only had it because my doctor told me to. Since becoming a mother I research these things a little more.

when did you have the shot and when the baby? Have you see the bad press of it and if you had the shot-how many? Do you think the aluminium adjuvants and Polysoirbate are good for your body or if not harmful and how harmful?
