Do older women need to get Gardasil shots?

By host - nia-brown"Is Gardasil 9 right for me?" my patient asked during a recent office visit.

She is 45, recently divorced from her husband of 20 years and crafting her online dating profile. She's also wondering whether she is a candidate for the vaccine that protects against nine strains of the human papilloma virus (HPV) – a virus that causes most cervical, oral and anal cancer.

Ten years ago, L – I'm referring to her by her first initial to protect her privacy – brought her then preteen daughter to a pediatrician to get her immunised against HPV.https://www.smh.com.au/lifestyle/health-and-wellness/do-women-back-on-the-dating-scene-need-to-get-gardasil-shots-20190415-p51ebc.html?utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Facebook&fbclid=IwAR2fXk_UjKTKORXCPjprAuT4le0lAcOstRS_afB2xYgW24LFfgwfIW27sjA#Echobox=1555407024

What do you think? Is it necessary for women who get back on the dating scene to get Gardasil shots?

HPV Is a virus that is not necessarily sexually transmitted lol! I was celibate for 12 yrs by choice, I know, TMI... Obviously biopsies are a given but I had further surgical treatment and now have the 5 yr clearance finally. smiling face with smiling eyes
It would be brilliant if such an option was available. Certainly every woman should use a condom though as men don’t. winking face I am a woman in my late 40’s back on the dating scene now. winking face smiling face with smiling eyes though I think it is an equally responsible move for both sexes. Sorry lol that was a lot said. neutral face

The vaccine has proven effective but it's too late for non virgins to take it.

I really enjoyed reading this article about how a GP sleuthed out the right option for their patient. Great insight into the day to day practice.

Did this article just assume the sexual preferences of mid-40s women on the dating scene?

The parents of Anning and one nation supporters should have used condoms. Or at least pulled out.

When you're on the dating scene again take all the precautions you can. HIV is on the rise again and strains of drug resistant STD's is on the rise again some with no symptoms at all. Have regular medical checks. HSVI can easily become HSVII.

Thrown back on the dating scene. Like a fish back into the ocean? Weird language.

This sort of old school language is a reminder that old school thinking never far away.
