“You have Premature Ovarian Failure” … Sadly that is what some of our clients, many of them very young, have been told following the Gardasil (HPV) vaccine. In 2006 the Gardasil vaccine was promoted with its “One Less” campaign. The campaign was used to promote the vaccines ability to protect against the transmission of HPV (human papillomavirus), and by doing so potentially, prevent genital warts, cervical cancer, anal cancer, and other diseases. However, now more than 10 years from this vaccine hitting the market, and there is little evidence of prevention, and even more evidence of adverse reactions to the vaccine itself. In 2016 alone, there were more than 5,600 adverse reaction events reported to VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) in relation to the HPV vaccine. These adverse reactions can be severe at times including: GBS, MS, seizures, Pulmonary Embolisms, Premature Ovarian Failure and even death. According to VAERS reports from 2006 to 2016, 76% of reports with ovarian failure, premature menopause, and/or amenorrhea were associated with Gardasil. These reports are alarming.
What is POI or POF?
Primary ovarian insufficiency (POI) is a condition in which the ovaries stop functioning and is generally characterized by abnormal menstruation or premature depletion of ovarian follicles before the age of 40. This condition has also been called “premature ovarian failure” (POF) and “premature menopause,” and can often make becoming pregnant difficult and unlikely. Developing POI or POF can be painful to some women and devastating to a teenager, young adult or their parents, especially when it is the result of vaccination with the intent to protect. The therapies to preserve ovarian function and help with this emotional distress are often very time consuming and expensive, but there is hope.
