Does the HPV vaccination work even if you have had sex before you have it?

I’m just curious. I had the injection the other day, and someone said that it didn’t work if you have already had sex. Is this true?

I’m guessing it will work fine as long as the guy you had sex with did not have any strains of HPV. The vaccine doesn’t work for every strain of it, so it is possible that you could still get it even though you’ve gotten the vaccine so use condoms still!

Hmmm I would ask a doctor that knows more about hpv topic and see what he/she says about it.!

It works as long as you have not been exposed to the HPV virus, which is why it is recommended for girls who have not yet become sexually active.

We can’t tell you if your partner exposed you to the HPV virus.

All the best.
