Cervical Cancer Vaccination

Gynae Clinic offers the cervical cancer vaccine, called Gardasil, to young girls and women between the ages of 9-26. This vaccine helps protect against the development of cervical cancer.

What is cervical cancer?

Cervical Cancer grows on the surface of the cervix (the entrance to the womb from the vagina). It usually has no symptoms in its early stages. The most common symptoms that will eventually develop include irregular bleeding, including post coital bleeding and bleeding in between periods.

How does the vaccine work?

The Gardasil injection causes the immune system to create new antibodies that fight against the human papillomavirus (HPV), which has been shown to promote cancer growth. For best protection, young girls should receive the vaccine before engaging in sexual activity for the first time.

Your experienced gynaecologist in London will give you three shots in total. You will have the second injection two months after the first shot, and the third shot four months after that.

What can I do to reduce my risk of cervical cancer?

Cervical cancer is one of the most preventable types of cancer. In addition to getting the Gardasil vaccine, there are several things you can do to lower your risk of cervical cancer, including:

  • Scheduling regular gynaecological exams and pap smears - abnormal pap smears can be followed up with a private colposcopy at our clinic
  • Practice safe sex - protecting yourself against sexually transmitted diseases will also reduce your risk of cervical cancer
  • Don’t smoke - cigarette smoking is linked to an increased risk of cervical cancer
  • Limit your sexual partners - research shows that women with a higher number of sexual partners also have a higher chance of getting this type of cancer.

At Gynae Clinic our gynaecologists will advise you if you suffer any side effects from the cervical cancer vaccination.

 

Are you interested in decreasing your risk of cervical cancer with the Gardasil vaccine? Please schedule your consultation at Gynae Clinic today.
