Anonymous - Instead of viewing yourself as some kind of pariah, keep in mind that 80% of adults will have an HPV infection at some point in their lives. Chances are the individuals you're afraid won't want to be with you aleady have HPV and don't know it.

As to the vaccine people shouldn't have to ask this question and it only shows how poorly educated women are which in my opinion reflects on their doctors. It's because you can be HPV positive from one of the strains NOT included in the vaccine and since those strains included in the vaccine are the most aggressive and likely to cause cancer it only makes sense to protect against them. Even if you had one of those strains, you can still benefit from protection from the other.
