I have had all three and for me the first was the worse. The actual needle wasn’t too bad, it just kinds stung, but I had a sore arm for a week. The other two were not as bad. If it really bothers you take an advil/panadol or use an ice-pack.

It can’t on any level be described as ‘painful’. It’s a sharp sting that you feel when the medication is injected, it’s not the needle you feel. You might find that the site where you had your injection is a but red and bruised for a few days afterwards, but nothing major.

I’ve just had mine (last month) and it didn’t hurt. I don’t particularly like needles, but it didn’t bother me. The only one that slightly hurt was the third one because that is mixed with a booster jab. (You have a series of three jabs over a few months.) Just keep thinking about how much you’d rather have three injections instead of dying from cervical cancer.
You’ll be fine… x

I did have a bruise after my first one and felt drowsy-but it didn’t hurt.
Tips:Look to the opposite wall and wriggle thoes toes-keep the circulation going!
Dont worry-you’ll be absoloutley fine!

It Doesn’t Hurt.
I Had Mine Done And It Just Feels Like Someone Is Pinching You A Little.
Thats All
Dont Worry You’ll Be Fine
Hope It Helps
