    I went to the doctor's office by myself on the morning of my first shot. The nurse injected me and I didnt experience any side effects what so ever. I even drove home and went on about my day. It's been almost a week after and still not experiencing any flu like symptoms or severe headaches. However, What I've read recently makes me question whether or not I want to continue getting th ...

    I hated this shot. I just started my first one a while ago. I was in the worse pain ever afterwards for a typically shot. The day the injection, I got horrible hives on both of my arms that itch like no other. Then my groin started itching uncontrollable along with my back (almost like the worse sunburn ever). Lastly I got a bad cough later and sternum pain. I reacted pretty bad to this shot.

    I am 25 years old and just received my 2nd shot. I had bad side effects from both shots.. A few minutes after the injection, I became dizzy, extremely lightheaded, weak and off balance. Fatigued is a mild term.. I felt unwell all together, and had difficulty driving after. My Dr. insisted I get these shots, although I have already been diagnosed with HPV, as a way to prevent other strands of th ... Show Full Comment

    I have had all three shots and have had no side-effects yet. I had the last shot in August 08, is there still a possibility of the serve side-effects (fainting, low blood pressure, becoming paralyzed) still?
