Although this isn’t strictly birth-related, it is a woman’s issue, and I think it is an important one. Here is an article I just read which raised some serious concerns about Gardasil. One of my chief concerns about this or any vaccine is the length of immunity the shot gives. Gardasil’s estimated protection is for five years. But it’s being given to 12-year-old girls. And they aren’t required to test to see if this is cancer-causing, or if it has any bearing on future fertility. As someone who was exposed to DES in utero, that scares me. This vaccine is just so new, how can they know?
