(11:34)”It’s not just about getting the vaccine, it’s about getting vaccinated early,” said Dr. Michael Schulte, director of the University of Pennsylvania Vaccine Institute.
“If we get a vaccine sooner, it will have a more significant impact on preventing transmission.
It will decrease the incidence of transmission and the chance that someone will get a serious infection and die.”
The HPV vaccine protects against more than 99 percent of cervical cancers.
(13:27)How often does the vaccine work?
About 3,400 people in the United States get the HPV vaccine.
But Schultes said it works better for people who have had no symptoms for at least a year.
“The vaccine is much less effective for people in their first year, because they’re not really responding to the vaccine.
You may not be as effective,” he said.
“So that is why it’s so important that we do everything we can to get the vaccination as soon as possible.”
(13)What can I do if I get a HPV test result?
(14:01)The vaccine has been available since 2007.
But the HPV testing can be expensive, and it’s more costly than the regular exam.
The average cost for the first round of testing is about $50, and the second round is about 10 times that.
The third round is $100.
If you can afford it, the fourth round is more expensive, about $200.
The HPV testing costs about $300 to $500 a visit.
You should have your results within six weeks of your first dose, but it can take up to three months for a test result to show up.
If your results are abnormal, the vaccine has not been effective enough to be effective.
(15)What should I do in the event I have symptoms?
If you have symptoms, the HPV vaccination can help reduce the risk of cervical cancer.
But your doctor may recommend testing for cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN), a rare, genetic cancer that develops in the lining of the cervix.
This is often called squamous cell carcinoma (SCC).
The first dose of the vaccine should prevent your cervix from becoming cancerous, which is a rare event.
The vaccine is effective for about 20 to 25 percent of people who are diagnosed with CIN.
If it does not work, you may be able get a second dose that can help prevent the cancer from forming.
But even if you do get the CIN vaccine, you should not try to have a CIN biopsy because it can cause scarring and damage to your cervicovaginal (CVC) lining.
(16)What do I do with a cervical biopsy?
You should not remove the test results or examine your cervis until you are at least 18 weeks of age, according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
After you are 18 weeks, you must get a C-section and then a C.V. exam to determine if the cancer has spread.
If the test does not indicate cancer, you have to seek treatment.
You cannot have the vaccine if you are under 18.
The exam is typically done between 6 and 12 weeks after the first dose.
If tests show CIN, you will be given a second injection of the HPV-17 vaccine
