The vaccine is for many strains of the sexually transmitted infection HPV. Some strains of HPV often cause cervical cancer.

Do you have a doctor you see regularly, or is there a clinic in your area?

Those would be the best people to point you in the right direction.

thanks again bluuejumprope

-I find that my doctor recommend more on Cervarix,he even mention that the additional 2 type of protection offer by Gerdasil is for those who have multiple sex partner and very active in sex.(genetial warts)
But isnt it important to be covered from all four types of virus rather than two?
-Also,i find that most labs that offer vaccination tends to promote more of Cervarix than Gerdasil(maybe the price being one of the factor)
-if lets say I get Cervarix vaccination first to cover me from two types of virus,can i actually get vaccination in the form of Gardasil in the future?just for genetial warts coverage

I'm not sure why your doctor would recommend getting a vaccine that only protects against 2 types of the virus instead of one that protects against 4 - the more protection the better, no matter if you've only had one partner or 40.

As for whether you can get both vaccinations, that's something you'll have to ask your doctor. Cervarix seems to be more popular in Australia and Asia (it was developed in Australia) and Gardasil more in use in North America and Europe. The availability of each where you live may be a factor in which one you can get.
