How can I prevent myself from having cervical cancer?

DOCTOR’S RESPONSE:

Prevention of cervical cancer can be primary using vaccine against HPV or secondary via cervical screening of sexually active females and women of the age 25 – 64 years. HPV vaccine is recommended for females between the ages of 9 – 26 years who are ideally expected not to be sexually active and therefore yet to be exposed to the Human Papilloma virus. Three doses of the HPV vaccine is required; the first dose at time zero, the second is administered one month after the first and the third is given six months after the second dose {(0, 1, 6) sechedule}. HPV vaccine is safe and no randomized control study has shown it to have adverse effect in the immediate or long term basis on the individual.
