Can you have sex in between HPV vaccination schedule?

Postby Cheryl123 on Mon Mar 04, 2019 9:11 am

The HVP vaccination typically needs to be given in 3 dosage, quoted "A 3-dose schedule is recommended for people who start the series on or after the 15th birthday ... The second dose should be given 1 to 2 months after the first dose and the third dose 6 months after the first dose." (Full text: http://www.immunize.org/askexperts/experts_hpv.asp ). Question is, in between the dosage (i. e. 2nd and 3rd), can I have sex?

Yes. HPV vaccine should be administered to people who are already sexually active. Ideally, patients should be vaccinated before onset of sexual activity; however, people who have already been infected with one or more HPV types will still be protected from other HPV types in the vaccine that have not been acquired.
