I want to know if anyone has ever taken this vaccination before and what you think of it.

Im confused. Any opinions?
It's going to be awhile before they let adults take the vaccine. They want it targeted towards kids once they turn 13 and there is a lot of controversy around it... It is a STD vaccine and some parents might not like the idea of it. But for the most part, they say once you contract HPV the vaccine won't do a thing for you.
But! What I don't understand is. If a male has the High-Risk HPV, (The virus that can cause cancer/abnormal cells on the cervix) And there isn't a test unless the girlfriends has an abnormal pap smear. How would they know that the male is not supposed to take the vaccine??
So I guess in a way… Why not take it if you already have it??
