Teenage Girl Becomes Infertile after Gardasil Vaccination

Gardasil has been controversial from the beginning. While other vaccines protect against diseases spread by casual contact, Gardasil was developed to protect against a sexually transmitted disease called Human Papilloma Virus or HPV. Merck & Co., the manufacturer, has been very effective at lobbying governments around the world to make the vaccine mandatory for school attendance. Despite the frequent objections of doctors and parents, it has been administered to tens of millions of 11- and 12-year-old young girls around the world.

Now comes the case of a 16-year-old Australian girl who suffered "premature ovarian failure" after receiving Gardasil. Her ovaries have shut down, her eggs have been destroyed, and she will never be able to have children.

Dr. Deirdre Little, the Australian physician who treated the girl, has published a complete account in the British Medical Journal. (BMJ Case Reports 2012; doi:10.1136/bcr-2012-006879) Her report explains that the girl's menstrual cycles were regular until she received the Gardasil vaccination in the Fall of 2008. By January 2009, her cycle had become irregular. Over the course of the next two years, her menses became increasingly scant and irregular, until by 2011, she had ceased menstruating altogether.

Early menopause is highly unusual. In this case, the girl was in excellent health, and had no family or personal medical history that could explain this premature menopause. Her first effort to obtain medical assistance for her amenorrhoea resulted in the doctor advising her to take oral contraceptives. Had she agreed, such drugs would have masked the problem and most likely the possible cause as well. But she declined.

It should be noted that many young girls are told, as she was, to take oral contraceptives as an antidote to what is called in the medical field, oligomenorrhoea, which means infrequent or very light menstruation. Most probably take their physician's advice, which means that there may be many more cases of "premature ovarian failure" than we now know, since the contraceptives mask the symptoms.

In the Australian case, after testing the levels of numerous hormones, and the function of various internal organs, the girl was diagnosed by Dr. Little as having "premature ovarian failure", which is defined as "the presence of menopausal gonadotrophin levels in association with over 3 months of amenorrhoea or oligomenorrhoea before age 40 years." Further testing confirmed that all of her eggs—every last one—were dead. She was and is totally and irrevocably infertile.

This case was reported to the local vaccine manufacturer in Australia, called the Therapeutic Goods Administration, to find out what they knew about the vaccine's effect on a woman's reproductive system. Very little, it turned out. The TGA had records of various tests on rat testes, but no records of the effect of the vaccine on rat ovaries.

It is very rare for a healthy 16-year-old girl to go through menopause. It is also a personal tragedy of the first order, one that will only grow in magnitude as she marries and yearns to start a family.

While Dr. Little could not confirm that Gardasil caused the destruction of the girl's reproductive system, she was able to rule out all other possible causes. The circumstantial evidence implicating Gardasil is strong.

The world has just celebrated what the U.N. has designated as the "International Day of the Girl Child." In the resolution announcing this day last December, the General Assembly stated that it "Invites all Member States, relevant organizations of the United Nations system and other international organizations, as well as civil society, to observe the International Day of the Girl Child, and to raise awareness of the situation of girls around the world." (emphasis added) The resolution talks of empowering women, enabling them to make decisions, supporting them, recognizing their human rights, and ending discrimination.

Tens of millions of young girls have received the Gardasil vaccine since its approval by the FDA six years ago. If even a tiny fraction of them have experienced infertility as a result, then these "girl children" have been denied a very fundamental right, that is, the right to decide how many children they want to have.

In the case of the Australian girl the effect is irreversible. She has lost an integral part of her womanhood, while still but a child. Women deserve better.

HIV vaccine consequences

I am so afraid that my advising my 2 girls to get the vaccine has caused them irreversible health issues. Both of my girls received the vaccine. The youngest had irregular periods and sometimes no period after the vaccine series. Her Dr. put her on birth control and she has been on it for 12 years. She is very healthy and a nutritionist. When she went off the pill, she had no period and was told to give it a year. 2 years later she has no estrogen and normal FSH levels. She has been told her ovaries are failing.
My oldest daughter is battling an extremely rare form of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. The cancer is so rare that it only appears in people 50 and older and in mostly men. She is 31. While she was preparing for her treatment, another young woman walked with the exact type of cancer. The radiation oncologist were dumbfounded. They say they have never seen two cases of this cancer type in young women let alone at the same time.
How does one go about having medical records examined to determine if their health issues may be related to this vaccine?

Is this the answer I've been looking for?

I feel as though I have just stepped out of a heavy fog and am finally seeing the light. After reading this article, I have an immensely strong feeling in my gut that this is the answer I have been searching for. When I was 18, (in 2008) as per my nurse practitioner/gynecologist's recommendation, I agreed to get the Gardasil vaccination. Shortly after being vaccinated, I had a pap smear done which came back with abnormal results. They told me I had cervical dysplasia, which given my history (or lack thereof) this was completely implausible and unexplainable to me. I did not question it, just drowned myself in grief thinking that this was somehow my fault. I went through a biopsy 6 stressful months later only to be told that since I was so young, my body would heal on its own. (I recently found several sources that claim many reports of cervical dysplasia showing up after Gardasil vaccinations have been made.) Interestingly, each pap smear following that one came up normal? And yet I was given the impression that cervical dysplasia was something a woman would carry with her for life..?

After my 3rd Gardasil injection, my menstrual cycle became more and more irregular. I expressed concern to my gynecologist and she recommended that I begin taking oral contraceptives as a means of regulating my menstrual cycle as well as to prevent unwanted pregnancy. I did. Following this, my menstrual cycle continued to spiral more and more into irregularity until around late 2010/early 2011 when I no longer had a period whatsoever. I expressed concern again about this at each of my following annual visits to the gynecologist and was told that this is a common side effect of taking oral contraceptives. I have asked many female friends and family members who also take oral contraceptives if they experienced the same effect, and none of them have. I must note, however, that none of them had gotten the Gardasil vaccination either. After reading this article and doing some additional research, I am beginning to wonder if perhaps the oral contraceptive I was told to take has simply just masked the fact that I am no longer fertile due to having been given the Gardasil vaccination. I have not had any signs of menstruation in 3 years now.

I have since strayed far away from the medical field as a means to diagnose and heal my body, and have only been using holistic healing/natural remedies/energy work for any issue I have come across (and with great success - much greater than anything that was ever prescribed to me in my lifetime). This change in my life, as well as the information provided to me by this article and my own research, has landed me at a crossroad. I want answers, but I no longer trust the pharmaceutical/medical industry to provide me with the truth that I seek. I would greatly appreciate any additional information and support that anyone has to offer to me. Thank you and bless you all so much for spreading truth and knowledge to the public. We need to shed light upon things such as this so that the generations that follow us can make better and more informed decisions about their bodies and their health.

HPV vaccines may actually increase risk of cancer

From the VAERS adverse event reporting system we see many cases of abnormal PAP smears, cervical dysplasia and cervical cancer after HPV vaccines. These conditions are extremely unusual in young girls.

Generally, the numbers of vaccine adverse events are grossly under reported and may be as low as one per cent of the actual number of cases.

There are signals that there is worse to come.

Studies show that when women are vaccinated in early pregnancy there is increased risk of giving birth to babies being born with deformities.
http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/acip/meetings/downloads/min-archive/min-jun0...
Numerous formal attempts to gain access the study by the teratologists have hitherto been unsuccessful.

Merck has paid the Norwegian authorities for access to information regarding thousands of Norwegian girls who are being vaccinated with Gardasil:
“The government of Norway committed to establishing an HPV vaccine registry for the entire country. Merck will use data from the HPV vaccine registry and existing birth registers in Norway to analyze pregnancy exposures and outcomes”.

This information includes the numbers of miscarriages and babies born with deformities.
Thousands of Norwegian girls are unaware that they are being used in a gigantic research experiment.

Clinical trials for vaccines are conducted for short periods of time, yet autoimmune conditions present long after vaccinations, sometimes years afterwards.

It is ironic that Gardasil may actually cause cancer due to:

- Lack of carcinogenicity testing of the vaccine
- Replacement (virus strains removed by the vaccine may be replaced by cancer causing strains)
- Presence of aluminium bound recombinant DNA (rDNA), the consequences of which are unknown and may be horrific
- Girls who are previously infected with the HPV virus and then get vaccinated with HPV vaccines may have considerably increased risk of cervical cancer

The HPV vaccines are often misappropriately termed cancer vaccines. It will be an ironic and tragic stroke of fate if they are shown to cause a cancer epidemic.

I'm not sure why but this web site is loading extremely slow for me.
Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem
on my end? I'll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

How about teaching kids to

How about teaching kids to insist in using condoms and teaching them about avoiding all stds? Cheaper, safer and healthier

One woman. One man.

Anonymous,

I disagree with the condom solution. Here is why.

Promoting the use of condoms or any contraceptive perpetuates the contraceptive mentality, which tells people to have sex with anyone, anytime. That behavior is the number 1 cause of the spread of STDs in the first place.

Furthermore - and I know this is off-topic, but I need to paint the bigger picture - that contraceptive mentality, which separates the sexual act from the generation of new individuals, creates a state of mind where people are more inclined to resort to abortion in order to avoid being a parent (although the new human being has already been conceived, making the man a father, and the woman, a mother, from the time of fertilization).

One woman. One man. Abstinence before marriage. Then married. Faithful to each other. And opened to the new life. That is the real solution we should strive for.

(P.S. Being opened to new life doesn't necessarily mean conceiving a new life every 9 months. Women are only fertile a percentage of the ovarian cycle and having intercourse only during non-fertile stages for a grave just reason (such as, for example, the real concrete impossibility of nourishing the child) can be justified and is still openness to new life in accord with the "grammar" of creation).

I think this is among the most significant information
for me. And i am glad reading your article. But should remark on some general things, The
web site style is perfect, the articles is really excellent
: D. Good job, cheers

Gardasil

I have been following the "Gardasil Juggernaut" for a few years now (as a Naturopathic Medicine student and mother of a teenage girl). I elected not to have my daughter take part in the "free injections" as I'd heard about some pretty awful adverse reactions. HPV... and the associated cancer falls way down on the "risk" list. More people get killed on NSW roads than get cervical cancer in Australia. In the US, approx 4000 women died from it last year. Whereas Type 2 Diabetes (preventable) was listed as cause on over 200,000 death certificates in the US .. and that was 2007... Perspective is needed as our kids are more at risk of getting type 2 diabetes (approx 1 in 400 but that's on the rise). I highly recommend people research the REGISTERED ADRs ... including deaths. Why is this unnecessary vaccine being tested on our girls? Keep pushing the safe sex message, not give them this high risk vaccination. Scarily it has been made compulsory in California I believe.

If you put anti-fertility drugs into a vaccine, it will make peo

The Gardasil vaccine - in common with many other vaccines and drugs - contains polysorbate 80 (also called Tween80) which is an anti-fertility drug as well as a neurotoxin. So why should anyone be surprised that girls who receive this vaccine become infertile? No doubt, boys will also lose their fertility after getting this shot (and becoming paralysed, brain damaged, develop seizures and die). This shot was never tested properly for safety, it is known to be contaminated with HPV DNA which may be linked with an increased risk of cancer and uses an aluminium adjuvant which not only carries an increased risk of autoimmunity, brain damage and seizures, but increases the permeability of the blood brain barrier making it more likely that the toxic ingredients from vaccination pass straight into the central nervous system.
