Giving The HPV Vaccine Before Marriage?
Hello, I want to know about the HPV vaccine and when should I get the vaccine? If I want to get married, will my husband have the vaccine too, what are the benefits of vaccines for men?
Hello Dhevi, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
HPV vaccination is a vaccination recommended for all women to help prevent HPV infection where this infection in women can cause cervical cancer (cervical cancer) or cancer of the vagina, whereas for men it can cause cancer of the penis.
This vaccination is recommended to be done for both women and men the fastest since the age of 9 years, but more often it is recommended at the age of 11-12 years to get his first vaccination, a maximum age of 25 years.
For women and men over the age of 25 years or not yet 25 years old but already active in intimate relationships, it is better to consult with your doctor before getting vaccinated to further assess whether the vaccination can be given or not.
HPV vaccination itself will be given 3 times by injecting into the muscles. The first gift was given during the first visit to the doctor, the second injection was given 1 month from the first injection and the third injection was given 6 months after the first injection was given. If it is missed / late from the schedule it should be, it is better to consult first with the doctor.
Based on the information above, your future husband should also be vaccinated to help prevent penile cancer by following the HPV vaccination rules as for women.
I hope this helps.
