  1. This was the first vaccine that we let our son decide whether or not to get for himself. He was 11 and his pediatrician gave him the explanation of the risks and benefits. This was before we knew how much a risk that HPV posed to boys. He opted to get the vaccination.

  3. My problem with herpes has caused me many traumas, especially in my sex life. I was so afraid of infecting my boyfriend, I suffered the embarrassment of visiting dermatologists queries hundreds of times.Unfortunately, they did not find a definitive solution to my problem. The solution came from the least expected place. By reading in a specialized forum on the subject,mentioned a method for eliminating herpes. Many people had tried, with excellent and quick results.I had nothing to lose so I decided to use this method to eliminate my herpes. spent just 10 days using this method and my herpes completely disappeared. I recommend this method to anyone who want to eliminate the herpes from their body forever, contact Dr Aloha today through his email: or call/text using WhatsApp +1 (202) 871- 3222

  7. I got the Gardisil vaccination way late, like at 24 years old. I'm a guy, by the way. I already caught hpv once and thought vaccination would help protect against other strains.

  10. Why did this pop up in my newsfeed when all I watch is video game related videos on YouTube? 🤔 Also HPV is only a concern if you’re having multiple sex partners. If you or your significant other never had sex before and you’re both virgins, you’ll be fine. 👌🏻 Ok back to watching more PS5 news…

  11. Wild oregano oil will kill hpv but you must eat clean and remove heavy metals from your body using herbs like cilantro
