How long did it take for your HPV shot to start hurting?

by Rachel on May 19, 2011

Hello I just got the hpv shot, the first one, about an hour and a half ago. Everyone has said that it hurts really bad but to be honest i dont feel anything aside from a little spaz every once and awhile…so i was just wondering how long it took before it started to hurt…just incase I should be prepared that it might start hurting in a while? Thanks for any imput you might have

Well I got mine and it started to hurt right away, and continued for about a week. Some people dont feel pain from shots so everyones different. Hopefully you’ll be one of those lucky few! (:

Neither of my three hurt at all, my sister almost fainted with her third shot however.

Thank God for the HPV shot. That disease is running rampant. I felt nothing unusual after mine. You should be fine if you have not felt anything yet.

I didn’t really have any pain from the first shot. The second and third were slightly sore, but still not horribly painful. Some people have a low tolerance for pain, and some people react differently to vaccines. I would say if you’re not hurting now, it’s not likely to hurt any worse than it already does.

Mine started hurting right after she did it. It would sting and then it was red for a few days, but that was it. Nothing major.
