If you mean Guardisil (sorry!) than no. It hurts all the same. At least for me it did. I found the 3rd round easier for some reason, but I guess it was because it was the last one!

Your friends need to drop the amateur dramatics! The second shot is exactly the same as the first.

I didn’t notice it hurting anymore than the first. I have only had two of them. If the same person is giving it to you then it should feel about the same! I noticed that it did sting a bit! But the first was not better or worse than the second.
