Yep, to what newpatient said. I think the commericals also lead people to think that the vaccine prevents ALL cervical cancer and that isn't true. The 2 strains of high risk HPV that are in the vaccine cause about 80% of cervical cancer, so the other strains cause the other 20%.
The vaccine helps reduce the chances of the devistation that can happen because of HPV, but it isn't a guarantee.
