    I'm 17, and started my first round last year when I was 16. Started my second today and feel completely fine. Besides the soreness at the injection site, but all shots do that to me.

    My daughter had the 3 shot series back in 2006. No side effects. But, she had a baby in 2012 that was born with a cleft lip and cleft palet. May be unrelated...anybody else have any children with birth defects that received Gardasil??

I did not fully understand how one could get cervical cancer, if I did I would not have gotten this thing because I only anticipate having sex with one person for the rest of my life. Aside from that, I was tot ... Show Full Comment

A couple of weeks later I experienced fatigue, dizziness, tingling in legs and arms, pain all over my body, and terrible anxiety and low blood sugar attacks. I saw many doctors and specialists. The only thing wrong with me was low vitamin d count, which is now better because ... Show Full Comment

I have suffered from neuropathic pain syndrome since I received this shot and my life has been hell. I was always an active person, playing many sports and working hard. So I am now a 28 year old who can no longer work, haven't been able to finish college and live in pa ... Show Full Comment
