Play

Segment 1:

Last month, a CDC committee recommended that boys as young as age 9 get vaccinated against the human papilloma virus (HPV). HPV is the most common sexually transmitted disease in the U.S., but why should children at such a young age get the shot?

HPV – Associated Cancers Statistics

Guests:

  • Dr. Andrew Pavia, professor and Chief of the Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases at the University of Utah Health Sciences Center and Primary Children’s Hospital

    I have HPV and I am an engineer who works for the largest STD dating and support site STDslove. com. I have to tell you a secret, you can choose not to believe me. But the truth is that this site has more than 1,880,000 members and about 80% members are good looking in my estimation.

    Unfortunately, STD rates soar worldwide and most people with STDs don’t even know that they have them. The government should grant more money for STD education to lower the rates of STD transmission.

    I just want to tell the people that you are not alone even when you have an STD! There are so many people who have the same situation as you. Also, there are many online communities for you to find support and dating! I recommend you to read the STD inspirational stories on the largest STD support and dating site HerpesLove, n e t. Hope that you find the stories helpful and informative.

    Living with STDs can be really lonely. So it’s important for people with STDs to find a place to get support and find love. Fortunately, a friend of mine who are a single with STDs told me that the largest STDs dating site STDsMatch. com now has more than 560,000 members, which makes it’s easier for singles with STDs to find support and love.

    The HPV vaccine has been reported to cause sterility in young women. Some Asian countries mandate this vaccine and there has been a rise in spontaneous abortions and sterility in the population. Can you comment on this?

    I think we might be vaccinating for so many things that we are actually seeing a rise in auto-immune responses.

    Sorry if I missed this, I wasn’t able to listen to the entire show. I’m just wondering if there been any cases of individuals actually getting HPV from the vaccine? I’m not sure how this particular vaccine works, if it includes a dead version of the virus or something similar. Thank you!

    Lots of men and women that are dwelling with sexually transmitted conditions like herpes or HPV are scared to get started on dating again. In STD dating groups, such as Herpesanddating,net or Herpesloving, com, acquiring an STD like HPV is regarded normal, as a result there is no stigma or isolation that will take place considering that all of you belong.
