Gardasil’s effects on the lives of young women and their families

Ashley Ryburn (Colorado)

Ashley RyburnI want to introduce you to Ashley.  She was 15 at the time of her first shot and she is now 16.  Here is what her mother has to say about her daughter. “I am a single mother and have dedicated my life to providing a safe, fun loving environment for my daughter. She has been a gift in my life. I describe her as having an old soul. People of all ages, race, disabled, even animals connect with her. She has always attracted attention from everyone even complete strangers. Ashley will immediately help anyone in need. From holding open a door, to standing up for a child being picked on. People in our community always tell me what a great job I have done raising her.”

“Ashley has always been involved in extra curricular school activities and has always received top grades. My healthy teenage daughter became a chronically ill young woman. In the last year I have called 911 more times than I can count. She has been hospitalized three times within a year. We have seen many doctors and specialists who have done many tests multiple times all to be within normal limits. Ashley experiences life threatening episodes of seizure like activity, difficulty breathing, major back spasms, paralysis, dehydration, memory loss and tremors and she becomes unresponsive. She has daily illnesses of nausea, exhaustion, vomiting, pain and hair loss. I have provided CPR and life saving skills on a regular basis”.

“Ashley and I have had conversations in the event she may die. I can only promise her that I will do everything in my power for this not to happen and that we need to focus on healing. I never thought in a million years a vaccine would do this much damage to my beautiful girl. I stay strong for my daughter.  I also cry with her too.  I keep faith in knowing God doesn’t put more on our shoulders than we can handle.  As a mother, I also feel the responsibility to get Ashley’s story out there so we can help other families.”

“Now she is ill – her life is dealing with daily symptoms and hoping for a day without a life threatening episode.”

Nora KennyNora Kenny (Illinois)
See letter from Nora’s mom

“Nora has always been a great kid—she’s the oldest of our 3—a 16 year brother, Jack and a 15 year-old sister, Sally.

Nora was an honor role student her entire high school career, a 3 sport athlete until her senior year where she only played basketball and softball. She was named all academic-all conference for each sport she played. She has always made friends easily and enjoys the things that most girls her age do. She started working as a hostess at a local Red Lobster in the spring of her Junior year and was promoted to waitress last summer. She attends the University of Illinois at Champaign and plans to major in Kinesiology.”

“I am very proud of Nora and I feel very badly that I agreed to have her receive Gardasil. She asked me the other day why we didn’t know of its potential harm….I had no good answer.”

“Nora is now taking seizure medication. There is no family history of seizures.”

“She received her first shot June 16, 2008 and fainted June 21, 2008. My husband and I were at a friend’s house for dinner. At about 7:30pm, our youngest daughter called to say something was wrong with our 18 year old daughter Nora, and that the ambulance was taking her to the ER. She received her second shot August 19, 2008 and had the seizures September 2, 2008. I got a phone call from a young woman who lives on the same floor in the same dorm as Nora to let me know that Nora had had a seizure.”

Theresa BohnTheresa Bohn – Age 21 (Marlborough, Massachusetts)
Prior to Gardasil, I had no previous known illnesses or behavioral issues, except for an occasional migraine headache. I had no complications whatsoever with IUD or menstrual cycle until after I had my first Gardasil shot (Lot 1758U) on April 28, 2008 – IUD removed October 2008. My second Gardasil vaccination (Lot 0651X) was on January 8, 2009 and I had this along with a tetanus shot. My symptoms include: 30 lbs unexplained weight loss and my hair falling out in clumps and migraines. I experienced sudden sharp pains all over my body, which are most intense in my head, abdomen and legs.

Earaches and frequent ear popping with pain and stiffness in elbows, knees, wrists and ankles and a numbness in my face including lips, nose and cheeks; pressure in sinuses, stiffness and tightening in my neck. I have had vision problems including double vision, blurred vision, light auras, difficulty focusing and pain/pressure in and around my eyes. Frequent muscle spasms all over and a weakness/numbnes/tingling in arms and pains in legs. Have experienced weak to no reflexes in my left elbow and right knee and have had chest pains and tightness. Sharp shooting pains in pelvic area/vaginal areas. Also my menstrual cycle has been irregular and heaviness with pain in lower back. Cramps/Charlie horses in legs and feet and also cold hands and feet and also experiencing tremors in my legs. Severe anxiety issues, causing my heart to race/blood pressure to increase; anger and irritability issues. I am unable to concentrate for any length of time. The sensation to urinate comes on strong and it feels like I am going to lose control and am left with a feeling of incomplete urination.

Diagnosis: An X-ray showed my spine is straightening and CT scan showed my intestine is swollen. I have received no exact diagnosis as yet. I am to receive an MRI of my brain and neck (cervical) in August 2009 and shortly afterwards I am scheduled to see a Neurologist.

Gardasil has completely changed my life. Before Gardasil, I never had a pain that I could not explain. For a year now I have been in and out of doctors offices desperately searching for an answer. I am no longer able to perform my job the way I used to. Before Gardasil, I was enrolled in college with a 4.0 and now I cannot even finish a book I am just trying to enjoy. I feel like I am not giving my son and fiancé the time they deserve from me, because I am too tired, in too much pain, or because I am at the doctor’s office. I just want to be myself again and enjoy every moment of being a mom, but everyday it feels like I am falling further away from the “old me” or the “me before Gardasil.”

Steffanee Richardson (Hallsville, Missouri)

Steffanee RichardsonMy daughter Steffanee’s illnesses started after she had completed her three Gardasil vaccinations, the first was in 8/2008, the second in 11/2008 and the final vaccination she had on 1/2/2009.  Her serious health problems started on February 2, 2009 and from that moment on things started to deteriorate.  Over a period of time she had four ER visits at the University of Missouri, Columbia and the Mayo Clinic, Minnesota.  Her many symptoms included: headaches, panic attacks, she could not breathe, felt her throat was closing up, brain fog, fatigue, severe joint and muscle pain and spasms, really bad knee pain,  energy level low, non epileptic seizures, twitches, neurological disorder with muscle movements that are uncontrollable, jerking of limbs and entire body. That is to name just a few and today there has been a slight improvement, doing better, but still has twitching/jerking of limbs and knee pain.

Our lives were turned upside down on Feb 2, 2009.  We got a call from her school, our 17 year old daughter was having severe seizures, screaming in pain.  This was the very first time I had ever seen anything like that. It started with muscle spasms in her back.  It was like that for 6 weeks, ambulance rides and in and out of hospitals and ERs.  It was her first visit to the hospital; she was a very healthy girl prior to having the Gardasil vaccinations. I worry about her every day.  Her life has been on hold for about 5 months, she sleeps a lot.  She is very fatigued most of the time. Her personality changed through all this, I’m sure it’s because she was in so much pain.  I hope and pray every single day that these seizures will stop, that this Gardasil vaccine will get out of her system and let her have her life back.  She went through a depression when she was in and out of the hospital, missing school & cheerleading.  She was VERY active prior to February 2, 2009.

I have to have my cell phone with me every minute of the day, afraid that she will need me or that one of her friends is trying to get in touch with me, because she is having a seizure. Adolescents are supposed to be carefree and worry
about nothing. Gardasil changed that for a lot of girls.  The emotional stress alone has been very hard on our family.  The financial part has added more stress.  I believe they have run every test available on her, all results……normal.  That in itself is not normal with all the serious health problems that Steffanee has.

They say stress adds to the Gardasil Girls problems.  How can they not be stressed, worrying that they will become ill at school and their parents would then have to be sent for?

Cassie Summers (Missouri) – See letter from Cassie’s mom

summers“Our nightmare started December 2007 without us even knowing it and willingly my fun loving active daughter pulled up her sleeve and received the first of three Gardasil vaccines. Cassie, 14 at the time, is known for her genuine love of life and her heart warming smile, she was very active in church and youth group belonging to FCA at school as well as playing volleyball and running track. That was until Gardasil stole her life away from her”.
“Since receiving her third Gardasil vaccine she has been hospitalized 4 times and had in my opinion a unnecessary surgery, she has been diagnosed with pancreatitis, gastrointestinal disorders, had pneumonia three times, and is also suffering from a variety of symptoms including extreme nausea and vomiting resulting in having a central line placed and being put on TPN and Lipids (IV nutrition), fatigue, dizziness, headaches, hypersensitive to light and sound, blurred vision, lactation, seizure like activity, tingling and numbness in legs and severe pain in her abdomen.  My once fun loving, active daughter is now debilitated with illness and pain, however she refuses to allow Gardasil to take away her loving spirit and warming smile.”

“Through all of this she has taught me so much about never giving up and never losing faith in God, even at times when I was so afraid to take my eyes off her in fear she would not take another breathe”, she would say, “I know God has a plan I know there is a reason for my sickness.”  “ We could all learn a lot from these girls I know I have and I am so proud of Cassie.”

Holly Kysar (New Mexico)

Holly received her first shot in May of 2007 and her second in July of 2007. She started to experience side effects immediately but the doctor did not think it was an issue when it came time for her second shot. Here is a list of the side effects Holly experienced right after the second shot. Fainting, dizziness, nausea, weakness, body aches. Her first known seizure was in November of 2007 with what Holly states is brain fog. As of today she still has seizures that are being controlled with medication and she still complains of brain fog and finds it difficult to concentrate and retain information.

Holly’s symptoms at time of writing continue and include seizures, fatigue, irritability, depression, muscle and joint pain, headaches, painful menstrual cramps, hair loss and rash.

Laurel Brishel Prichard (Alburquerque, New Mexico)

Laurel Brishel PrichardMy daughter was perfectly healthy until she received the first Gardasil vaccination at 18 years of age on March 23, 2008. Within 24 hours of the vaccine she began complaining of a terrible backache which lasted about a week.  Then she started having fatigue, stomach aches, vision problems and overall body aches.  She had her first seizure within a week after these symptoms.  She got the second shot on May 6, 2008 and the symptoms worsened and so did the full grand-mal, tonic-clonic seizures.  She also started having migraines, tremors and bruising.

The seizures increased to daily, sometimes more.  We spent the summer of 2008 calling ambulances and in the hospital (UNMH, Lovelace) where they said the seizures were non-epileptic.  She also had several UTIs which she’d never had in her life.  In July, she had a cluster of seizures (4) and almost died on my living room floor when she stopped breathing and turned blue.

By the Fall of 2008 the seizures started spreading out further.  We did not get the 3rd Gardasil shot as I had made the connection between her illness and the vaccine.  As time passed, the symptoms seemed to be resolving one by one.  In December 2008 she had a new symptom, bleeding gums which lasted until July 2009 and now this appears to have been resolved.  Her last seizure was January of 2009 until this past weekend, August 15, 2009 when she had 3 seizures.  She still suffers from the seizures and a severe tremor that has never gone away or lessened.  She has fought hard for her life and to get her health back.

She’s stayed in College, though her grades fell from the Dean’s List prior to the vaccine.   My daughter was perfectly healthy until she received this unnecessary vaccine.  I know the vaccine made her ill and I want to know how to make her well again.  Stop this vaccine before any other girls are injured.  She lost her independence and had to move home, her job, her grades, her health, her freedom and I have spent the last 18 months with many sleepless nights, spent tons of money on medical bills, endured horrid treatment by medical professionals because they didn’t have answers and my business has suffered too as she could not be left alone because of the drop seizures.

Please investigate this vaccine and help our girls and prevent other girls and mothers from enduring this nightmare. Email address:

Bridget Boyce (Cary, North Carolina)

Bridget BoyceMy 17 year old daughter Bridget was a happy and healthy young woman prior to vaccination of Gardasil.  She received her first vaccination of Gardasil (Lot 0961F) on 23rd January 2007 together with Hep A and Menactra.  She received a single dose of Gardasil (Lot 0384U) on 4th April 2007 and her final vaccination ( Lot 0524U) took place on 25th July 2007 which she had along with a Hep A shot.  She was first diagnosed with pneumonia in July 2007 which resulted in an ER visit to Wake Med Hospital in Cary, NC.  Her symptoms included hair loss, chronic sinus infections, migraines, weight gain, dizziness and brain fog (complaints of dyslexia) and severe PMS symptoms.  By November 2007, she was experiencing changes in her menstrual cycle.  In December 2008, Bridget had to be admitted to ER, Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, OH with diarrhea and vomiting, and this re-occurred again in August 2009 and she had to go back to the ER at the Miami Valley Hospital to be treated.

Since finding out about Gardasil in January of 2009, the lives of our family have been turned upside down.  Let me begin by saying that when my daughter first had pneumonia in the summer of 2007, I thought she was going to die.  It was so severe that she was on oxygen at the ER and at home. I had to continuously pound on her back to help break up the mucous.  Several months later, I knew something was terribly wrong when my previously healthy 19-year old was continuously ill with migraines, sinus infections, and menstrual changes (she was starting menopause at age 19 – getting a heavy period every two weeks).  After hours upon hours of research, I realized that Gardasil was the culprit.  I read horror stories about sudden death and seizures in other girls that had the Gardasil vaccine.  Unfortunately, my daughter was a nine-hour drive from me.  I was afraid that she could die at any minute.  I felt completely distraught and at fault for making my daughter ill since I recommended she have the vaccine.  Thank God I found other families with children suffering as my pediatrician told me I was overlooking the benefit to the majority.  I was able to get much-needed support of other parents whose daughters had experienced worse side effects than Bridget.  I still do not know if she will completely recover or ever be able to have children.  I am grateful that my daughter is now doing so much better after getting help from Dr. Mark Flannery.

This vaccine has robbed my daughter of her best years in college.  She has struggled to get good grades over the past two years.  She would often call me in tears because the fatigue was so overwhelming.  She was constantly concerned she would lose her college scholarship.  I had to let her know it was OK to get a C or even a D if she could just get through to the end of the school year.   I am optimistic about her future but deathly afraid of the unknown issues from this vaccine.

Lauren Brooke Mathis (North Wilkesboro, North Carolina)

Lauren MathisBecause of Gardasil, my beautiful 13 year old daughter missed almost her entire eighth grade year.  She became severely depressed because she could not attend school or be with her friends like a normal child.  Because of Gardasil, she was “One Less” in all aspects of her life.  She went from being an Academically Gifted student to one who struggled to complete her 8th grade year of school.  She was placed on a modified school plan by her principal who fully backed her because she was an excellent student who had been in the North Carolina Academically Gifted Program since 2nd grade.

Her life became an endless round of hospital and doctor visits with little resolution to the severe pain that she was experiencing.  She was even sent for surgery on her gall bladder at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center where a skilled surgeon recognized the symptoms were more than gall bladder dysfunction and thankfully did not operate.  We have spent the past year researching this horrible vaccine and the side effects and treating her with vitamins and medicine.  My daughter is currently being treated by Duke University’s Children’s Hospital and Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center’s Brenner’s Children’s Hospital and the bills are now in the tens of thousands of dollars.  Thankfully, I am a manager for Lowe’s Home Improvement Warehouse in their Corporate Office and have a good insurance policy which has helped cover the costs associated with the effects of Gardasil.

Lauren’s dates of vaccinations were 2/4/08 (Lot #1448U);  4/16/08 (Lot #1757U);  8/18/08 (Lot #0067X).  With her second Gardasil vaccination, Lauren also received Varicella 165U and Menactra U2559AA.  Symptoms over this past year and a half have included: enlarged liver, gall bladder attacks, severe nausea, chest pain,  severe abdominal pain, severe headaches, brain freezes, stomach ulcer, sensitivity to light.

The horrible realization is that VAERS is not accurate.  Prior to Gardasil, I did not know what VAERS was.  When my daughter became ill, I found out about VAERS by research performed on the internet.  My daughter’s doctors did not even know what it was and they did not file a report until I filed one myself and told them they were obligated by law to file a report.  How can the #’s be accurate if doctors don’t file the reports?  I even had to explain what VAERS is.  Shouldn’t VAERS and the adverse side effects of vaccines be taught in medical school or shouldn’t the doctors receive periodic newsletters from the CDC explaining VAERS and its importance?

The CDC and FDA are not doing their jobs.  If they were, after tens of thousands of people died from Merck’s VIOXX, how was Gardasil so quickly pushed into the marketplace?  Someone with the proper authority needs to research this and get a full understanding as to how this could happen when Merck had already been proven to be at fault for so many deaths.

Who is protecting the American citizens and our precious children?  How many girls will have to die before someone takes this seriously?  I beg of you to please ensure that this is investigated and that some changes are made to the VAERS reporting system which includes doctors being held responsible for reporting all adverse reactions following vaccinations.

They should not simply brush reports of adverse reactions aside and just referring to them as “she just has a virus.”  A virus would not last for one year, and the doctors do not understand the side effects of the vaccines that they are giving.  It should be mandatory that the doctors fully understand vaccines and their side effects and that they inform the parents UPFRONT of what could happen.

I pray that you consider my comments seriously and recognize that there are many issues which require to be investigated.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at 336-838-7578 or email me at RDMATHIS2@CHARTER.NET.

Crissey D Meeks (Raleigh, North Carolina)

Crissey MeeksMy name is Crissey Meeks amd I am 27 years old and I know there are a lot of teenagers dealing with a lot of unexplained symptoms after receiving the Gardasil shot.  I just want to share my experience with them and the world.  People, doctors, parents, and politicians need to be aware of the toxins they are pumping into innocent victims on a daily basis.  Before ever receiving the Gardasil shot I was perfectly normal, I was a young, vibrant, and full of energy woman.  I mean I loved my life and I lived it to the full.  I was your typical over the age of 21 young woman and I was very social, going out and just highly active.

It all started with an abnormal pap smear.  My gynecologist was to perform a coloscopy and I had the procedure done.  When I came back to the doctor for the results she stated that it would be very beneficial for me to receive the HPV Vaccine.  You know she told me all the things that it would be helpful for me to hear.  How it will prevent cervical cancer, how it was free, and it was basically a win, win situation.  I read the pamphlet and then I made the worst decision of my life.
On 5/11/07 I received the 1st shot of the series.  As soon as it went into my arm I felt a burning sensation going through my arm & my body.  I left the doctor’s office after this and went back to work.  My right arm was so sore, but I figured it was normal to have the pain and swelling.  Little to my knowledge did I realize that my life would change after that.  My right side was extremely sore for over a week.  I had this kind of knot in my arm at the injection site.  Still I just brushed it off as a normal reaction to the vaccination.

6/08/07 I started feeling a little funny.  I couldn’t really explain it.  I felt pain in my stomach, achy all over; I just kept on doing what I was doing.  My brother was leaving for India so I was trying to plan a farewell get together at my house on the 9th.  So I was pretty much running around trying to get things together.  Saturday morning I was up to get started with all the preparations.  I felt horrible and it hurt so bad just to stand upright.  My belly hurt so much and I hadn’t eaten anything since that Friday morning. I just did not have an appetite.  Family & friends started coming. I mean we had food galore. I never touched anything.  My sister noticed I wasn’t eating and I just said I wasn’t hungry.  I was tired and in so much pain.  The next morning I felt worse, but it was Sunday and my usual routine is to go to church.  I remember this like it was yesterday.  I had on my red sleeveless summer dress and I headed for church.  I mean my car was a 5 speed & it about killed me to drive.  I drove slouched over because by then everything hurt.  My head, eyes, arms, legs, abdomen, it felt like I was falling apart.

I sat in church in agony and I couldn’t even get up to put my offering in the basket.  I left church and went to my mother’s house as we always gather at her house after church.  She made my favorite roast and lemon cake, but I never said a word to anyone, I just sat in the chair in pure pain.  I really do not let people know when I feel bad as I do not want anyone feeling sorry for me.  I stayed at her house for about 30 minutes and then I simply got up walked outside and left.  I didn’t say good bye, I was leaving, nothing.  I just didn’t want to be around anyone.  Once I made it home I just cried.  I could not even take off my dress.  I finally called my mom around 10p.m. and told her how bad I felt.  She said to call my brother so he could take me to the ER.  But going there is a last resort for me as you have to drag me to the hospital.  I just lay on the couch and cried.  The next morning I tried getting it together to go to work. I still felt the same way but I pushed myself to go.  I sat at my desk slouched over, dizzy, feeling like crap. I think I stayed 30 minutes.  I called my family practice physician, they told me to come in that day.  I arrived at the surgery and they really did not know what was wrong with me.  I was thinking that they would at least make me feel a little better but unfortunately no.  They drew blood and put me out of work for the week.  I get my results back and they say I need to go and see a specialist (Rheumatologist) and so I did that.

They did the exact same thing as before, run tests and draw blood.  So I stay out of work for another week.  Once they got the results back they tell me I have Lupus.  So I accept their diagnosis as I figured that had to be my problem.  He said the condition was controllable.

7/19/07 I go back to my gynaecologist to get the next shot. Still oblivious that this was the reason I was sick in the first place.  I have the same symptoms after the fact, but by now I am having these trembles. I have never had this before in my life.  In certain periods of time my arm or my legs just start to shake.  I still just brushed it off, even although it was not normal for me to do this.  I still have the joint and muscle pain, headaches, sensitivity to sunlight, but I am still trying to live my life.  I am not active at all and I don’t want to do anything and I am complaining about everything. My whole attitude has changed.

It seems I am angry all the time, forgetting the simplest things.

10/18/07 I go and get my last shot. The gynaecologist was on vacation but her nurse rendered my shot.  Now I received my Gardasil in one arm and my Depo shot in the other. I thought it was crazy to get both of these shots at the same time.  But I am the patient.  I did not know that I was not supposed to receive more than one vaccination at a time.  So now I have both arms in pain.  But still I never put two and two together.  Now it’s December 2008. and I am still going through the same thing, only I started getting worse.  I figured it was a part of my Lupus so I went to my physician again for advice as I was just in pain everyday.  Medicine wasn’t working and I was taking a hot bath everyday.  Everything I did made me feel tired and I have an attitude that is off the hook.  My back hurts, my neck hurts, I also have trembles, tingling, headaches, and dizzy spells.  But I went to the doctor and they ran tests and took x-rays.  When she got my blood work back she said everything was normal other than my WBC was low.  My chest x-ray showed something so I ended up having to get a CT scan and this did not identify any problem.  I went back to the doctor and I have had a muscle enzyme test, in which it was highly elevated showing I have inflammation in my muscles.  My WBC went back to normal but my iron levels have decreased.  So now I am on iron pills.  I have been tested for everything under the sun.

When I started the vaccine my menstrual cycle changed and I have not had my period in over a year.  Since September 2008, my cycle has been going crazy.  I have anger issues that I really cannot control sometimes.  It’s just like I am a whole different person than the person I was before 5/11/07.  I have bursts of anger towards everyone.  No one is excluded from my rage.  At one point in time I thought I was just crazy.  I just want to go back to the old Crissey and I push myself everyday.  Sometimes I feel like I am alone in this.  I know something is wrong with me, but when you cannot even get the doctors to admit that it is from this vaccine then where do you go?  What do you do?  I once was happy about my life, even when things weren’t all that great.  Now it’s like I am in this depression that I cannot get out of.  The worry, the stress, it’s just too much sometimes.

02/19/09 – Today I am still going to the doctor on a regular basis for everything.  I go to several doctors now.  I get diagnosed with this and with that.  Take pills for this and that.  Before the shots I was healthy, I did not have any medical issues and I was very active. Now it’s like I am just a whole different person.  I was diagnosed with pancreatitis. I have ulcers in my stomach & intestines.  I go through memory lapses when I forget things.  My food does not digest so I go long periods without having a bowel movement.  I have had ultrasounds, MRI’s, you name it.  I push myself and keep going because I have a 9 year old daughter that I want to see get older.  When I look at her it keeps me going.

Brittney Fiste (Ohio)

Brittney FisteI want to introduce you to another young woman and her name is Brittney.  She has been suffering from the side effects of Gardasil.  I had the privilege to meet Brittney in September 2008.  She was lying on the couch covered up with a blanket and she needs to wear dark glasses because light hurts her eyes terribly. What I saw was a very upbeat young woman with a twinkle in her eyes when she took off her dark glasses briefly for me.  I also witnessed one of her seizures.  She has gotten so used to them that she knows when one is coming most of the time.  Brittney is suffering with constant pain, seizures, nausea, weakness and dizziness and needs a wheelchair to get around.  This young woman is a warrior in my opinion. She is doing the best she can to not let this get her down.  She fights everyday and night, 24/7.  Her wish is for doctors to stop giving the vaccine so others do not become like her.
Brittney received her first shot in June of 2007 and her second in August of 2007.
This is what her mother wrote to me about Brittney’s side effects.  This is but one paragraph from a very long letter.

“The adverse reactions began slowly, a fainting spell within 24 hours for no reason, then an odd occurrence a few days later  – she was on a date and suddenly couldn’t move or speak though her eyes remained open and she could hear.  A floating sensation came over her, then slowly she began to lose consciousness.  This lasted about five to eight minutes.

Her date thought she had died.  After she came to, she thought the whole episode was somehow related to her fibromyalgia in a new way.  Nothing like it had ever happened before to her.  One week later, Britt was with a group of friends at an amusement park when her legs suddenly gave out, hammering pain ran up and down her thighs and calves.

This lasted about 15 minutes, and it ended as abruptly as it came on.  None of this made any sense when taken as isolated incidents  – but I kept track of all of them since they made me very concerned.   The leg pain would come and go the rest of the summer, but in a much less intense manner.”

You can read Brittney’s dad’s letter to me here to see what a father goes through when their child is suffering.
UPDATE: Brittney is finally able to use crutches and a walker to get around.  Family is hoping that the wheelchair will eventually be a thing of the past when she is able to get braces.

Brooke McFarland (Cincinnati, Ohio)

My daughter had her Gardasil shots on 22nd January 2009( Lot #0650X) and 11th June 2009 (Lot #0558X).  Her first experience with an ER visit was on 16th July 2009 when we had to take her to Mercy Mt. Airy, Cincinnati and this was followed by a visit to our family doctor the following day.  He sent Brooke to see a series of heart doctors firstly at Christ Hospital, Cincinnati and then to a third doctor for a second opinion.  As stated below, she has been diagnosed with this heart condition.

Brooke is a 21 year old College student who was active, athletic and full of energy before receiving the Gardasil vaccinations.  She was happy go lucky with her whole life ahead of her until she started fainting for no reason. We have had many tests carried out, including CAT scans , blood work, EEG, EKG, HEART MONITOR you name it and she has had it.

The doctors say that she has Neurocardiogenic Syncope which is a problem with the brain not communicating with the heart.  The doctors are talking about her needing a pacemaker.  She has passed out in the tub, driveway, hallway, bathroom floor and it is frightening to find her like that. We are just hoping she will not get hurt or worse from the fall. She is supposed to start back to College in September but we are not sure what will happen as she cannot drive for fear of passing out.   Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help this cause. Our lives are on HOLD and we are HOLDING our breath.  We need someone to listen to us as our daughters are getting badly damaged from this vaccine.

She experiences migraines, saying her brain hurts, passing out (syncope), numbness in hands and feet, tingling, limbs contracting, hands like claws, seizures, rolling eyes, foaming from mouth, confusion, heart palpitations. She has been hospitalized 9 times since January of 2008, 3 hospitals, 4 neurologists, she has had EEG’s, TEE, lumbar puncture, MRI, MRA, CT, CTA, everything is normal. She also now goes into a regression. Sometimes unable to walk, speak, see, hear.

She passes out every day since last year. She is on medical leave from college, no quality of life whatsoever. “

“Danielle has developed hypoglycemia, hypothyroidism, vitamin D deficient, her liver enzymes are shot, her adrenal glands are off as well as her hormones. She gained 40 lbs from all the meds she was put on and the seizure medication has affected her brain”.  “Needless to say, we are devastated and heartbroken. Danielle was just a few credits shy of graduation and her life is on hold. So this has been a battle for over a year now. Her gynecologist is no longer giving out the vaccine.”  “Where do we go from here?  We have to fight to get this off the market.”

“With love from me a mother who is truly desperate, please,  please can you help…….”

Victoria Ventimiglia (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)

Victoria VentimigliaMy daughter, Victoria, has been ill since February 2008.  She had her first Gardasil vaccination November 2007.   Her second vaccination was in the beginning of February 2008.  Immediately after this, Victoria experienced severe diarrhea and was nauseous for about eight weeks.  Initially doctors thought she had a virus but on March 31, 2008, she had her first seizure. My daughter has been treated by many neurologists, all of whom have not related her seizures to Gardasil.  My daughter has had CT scans, MRI’s, MRA’s, EEG’s, blood work and was hospitalized at an epilepsy center in the video EEG Monitoring Unit for two separate weeks in May 2008 and September 2008. She was put on many different seizure medications. After the normal EEG results, she has been taken off all medications. My daughter has been seen by several neurologists, a psychiatrist, psychologist, several neuropsychologists, an immunologist, several infectious disease doctors, and also treated at a Wellness Center for a period of time.  Doctors at this Center believe that Victoria may have Lyme disease that was dormant but which was triggered by the Gardasil vaccine but this has not been confirmed by any other medical doctors.

My daughter currently experiences the following symptoms: non-epileptic seizures, migraines, fainting, tremors, twitches, numbness, intermittent leg paralysis and facial paralysis, tingling, staring or blank episodes, eye pain, joint pain, neck pain, back pain, memory loss, confusion, brain fog, regression, mood swings and chronic fatigue.

These symptoms are experienced by many other girls who have had the Gardasil vaccination.  She continues to have bouts of nausea and diarrhea.  She has not been in school since April 2008.  My daughter can never be left home alone.  She can’t go to school, go out with her friends or work or has little “normalcy” in her life. She has very few good days and always says she doesn’t feel well.  Our security at home has had to be increased as Victoria gets confused after a seizure, or when she has memory loss, and can leave the house without our knowledge and “goes missing”.  She also has to be supervised while showering in case she should take a bad turn.
Each day, I cry and wonder if Victoria will be the next one to die from adverse reactions to Gardasil.
Thank you for your time and attention.

Mikaela Tindell (Tennessee)

Mikaela TindellThis girl’s name is Mikaela and she was 10 years old when she received her first Gardasil shot.  Before the shot she was a healthy and active young girl.  Mikaela received her first shot in July of 2007 and in two weeks had a rash on her face, neck and chest and facial swelling.  She received the next doses in September of 2007 and January of 2008.

Presently Mikaela is suffering from fatigue, nausea, stomach pain, migraine headaches and has been diagnosed with PCOS.  Her periods stopped shortly after the vaccine.  This young girl struggles every day with fatigue and pain but still maintains a B average in school even though she misses a lot of school days. This girl’s mother, as at original date of writing this piece, was the moderator of a group called Let’s Talk About Gardasil.

Kelly E McFarland (Leesburg, Virginia)

Kelly McfarlandKelly was a healthy, athletic girl until she had mononucleosis at the age of 15½ in May of 2006.   By December 2006, she had almost recovered and her pediatrician recommended Gardasil.  Her dates of vaccinations were 12/15/2006 (Lot 0637F); 2/15/2007 (Lot 0186U) and her final vaccination was on 6/2/2007 (Lot 0522U).  My daughter’s illnesses have covered a three year period and she has still not recovered.  Kelly’s symptoms during this period of time have included:

Immediately Urinary tract infections – 5; Upper respiratory trait infection, strep throat 3 times, progressing to joint pain, muscle pain, muscle weakness, fatigue, irregular but very painful periods, memory loss, moodiness, anger, occasional slurred speech, 2 bumps growing under the skin on her face, insomnia, panic attacks, runny nose all the time (had no allergies previously), body temperature issues, gastrointestinal issues and night sweats.  Kelly was diagnosed with Posterial Orthostatic Tachacardia Syndrome (POTS) in April 2009.
Kelly’s days are all the same, she wakes up and is in pain all day long – joint, neck, shins, knees and her body is sensitive to touch.  She cannot take a shower and lift her arm over her head, walking upstairs causes her heart to race and she cannot get to sleep without medication.  Her sleeping pattern has been completely altered and she can sleep
two days in a row.  If she is not vomiting or having diarrhea with a stomach upset, then she is constipated.  Her concentration levels are poor and Kelly cannot sit down and read a book, which she always used to enjoy.  She is constantly exhausted and this is just not the young girl I used to have.

Up until May 5, 2006, Kelly was a healthy, active 15½ year old teenager getting A’s and B’s in school and playing volleyball in national tournaments.  Kelly had to give up volleyball because of her chronic illness and in February 2009 had to medically withdraw from college due to medical disability.

Kristyn Allen (Gig Harbor, Washington State, formerly South Carolina)

Kristyn AllenMy daughter was a happy, healthy 16 year old before Gardasil.  This vaccine was literally pushed on us during a routine doctor visit.  The doctor strongly advised getting this vaccine.  She made it out to be the best thing to do for my daughter.

She said there were NO side effects and this would prevent her from getting a whole list of things including cervical cancer and genital warts.  Almost immediately after getting the first 2 vaccines, my daughter started having a whole list of problems. Kristyn’s symptoms included back pain, numbness in both legs and left arm, headaches, pressure behind eyes, neck pain, racing heart, chest pains, stomach pains, difficulty breathing, weakness, dizziness, tingling in left arm and both legs, jerking movements in legs and arms.  I took her to several doctors including the emergency room – Mary Black Hospital, Spartanburg, SC.  The hospital ran all sorts of tests including a CT scan.  Everything would come back normal.  I should also add that she was given the Menactra vaccine (U2606AA) at the same time as the Gardasil vaccination (0279X and 0653X).

She continued to have problems.  It was only after having the second vaccine that I found out about the side effects that other girls were having.  I immediately started researching.  The guilt was overwhelming.  My once happy and healthy 16 year old had become a very sick girl.  She was an A/B student but was now failing her 10th grade year.  She did fail and is now having to re-take the 10th grade.  She still has a list of problems.

She threw her birth control in the trash because she didn’t want anything in her system.  She was so sick.  Two weeks later, she found out she was pregnant.  Now, not only are we having to deal with the after effects of this horrible vaccine, but now the baby is in danger.

This vaccine has completely changed our lives.  My daughter is scared every day that she will be another ‘one less’ living.

Merck should be ashamed!!!! Our daughters are NOT guinea pigs for the big pharmaceutical companies!!

Rachel Long (Walworth, Wisconsin)

Rachel LongGardasil has adversely affected my life.  I am a teacher and I can’t tell you how many times I have had to run out the door after receiving a phone call from her high school telling me this is one of those times I have to come, only to find her leaning against a locker in the hallway having a seizure.  During her seizures she stops breathing for periods of 30 to 40 seconds, the hard part is wondering if this is going to be the time she doesn’t start breathing again.  It has been a long hard road, with more worries to come, will she ever be able to drive, work or go away to college?  How do I send her away, who will be there to help my darling daughter?

Rachel has several symptoms including numbness and tingling in her fingers and toes, fatigue and she has a really hard time falling asleep.  She also suffers from UTI’s, ovarian cysts, she is moody and has trouble getting out of bed and she has seizures.  Rachel has had upwards of 150 seizures following her third shot in June of 2008.  Her other two shots were given in August 2007 and January 2008.  Rachel was a very healthy young girl, aged 14, and full of life before ever having the Gardasil vaccinations.  Now she is a very sick young girl who I desperately worry about.  I know in my heart that she would not be sick today if she had not been vaccinated with Gardasil.  We have had a diagnosis of Neurocardiogenic Syncope and seizures.

Samantha’s Story – a young girl with a history of health problems prior to Gardasil

Samantha Hendrix

Samantha HendrixOur lives have been turned upside down after Gardasil.  My daughter had a 3.8 GPA without even trying and she has failed all her classes since having this vaccination. Prior to having the Gardasil shots my daughter had serious health problems and had been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes; allergies to pollen, tree, smoke, grass, tobacco, fragrance and dust and dust mites.  She also suffers from Blounts disease and at the age of 12 was diagnosed as having Poly Cystic Ovary syndrome and was put on birth control pills to stop the excessive bleeding.  This is no longer a problem as my daughter has not had a menstrual cycle since receiving her first shot in November 2007 – early menopause perhaps.   My daughter’s health has been in serious decline since she received her Gardasil injections at the age of 14.  Within hours she was vomiting, feverish with a terrible headache.  She could not get out of bed for almost 3 weeks.  I called the doctor regarding her illness and she said she must have received a bad flu shot.  She was vaccinated with Gardasil at the same time as the flu vaccine.  She now passes out with any exertion; a simple walk will put her out.  She suffers from weakness in her both legs.  Soon after the second shot she was crying because her feet were hurting and she was diagnosed later with peripheral neuropathy – right foot on 4/09/08 and left foot on 5/22/08.    She could barely walk and was put in 2 com casts to keep her feet from hurting.  Samantha also is experiencing more then 4 migraines a month now.  She did have continual migraines for almost 3 weeks before they started to taper off.    She faints and loses the ability to use her legs.  This has happened many times then it’s followed by a 3 day migraine.  I attribute these bizarre symptoms and her illness to the Gardasil vaccine.  This is a human experiment on our daughters and they have been injured.  Everyday when I wake up I am afraid that my daughter will be dead.  I don’t want any other mother to go through what the Gardasil mothers are going through.  She has been diagnosed with sleep apnea and has been put on a CPAP, diabetes2, degenerative disc disease and loss of peripheral vision in her left eye and peripheral neuropathy in both feet.  She is still not any better 2 years later.

Samantha’s symptoms after having the vaccinations are many from paralysis in arm which fortunately was temporary, to fainting once or twice weekly since third vaccination, with slurred speech and loss of feeling in her legs.  Menstrual cycle changes, blurred vision, loss of peripheral vision in one eye and fatigue that is so bad she can hardly move.  To compound all of this, she has aching muscles and is in a lot of pain daily and has been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy in both feet.  In addition, she has brain fog and from once being the brightest kid on the block, a walking encyclopaedia she has often been called, she has great difficulty in remembering things, in concentrating for any length  of time and is not the young academic she once was before Gardasil.  Something has damaged my daughter and her school records would confirm her scholastic skills before being vaccinated.

Samantha’s last ER visit was on August 25, 2009.  She had lower leg paralysis for more then 3 hours.  This has been an unrelenting symptom since her last vaccine.  I could not tell you how many times we have been to the ER.  It would make you sick.  I did take her to her paediatrician, Dr. Kathleen Santi, Halifax Family Health, I wanted her to see the paralysis in her legs.  She refused to see her.  She told me to take her to the emergency room.   I could not believe that she would not even look at her.  Samantha has been her patient since 2003.  I was very offended by this.   Gardasil did this to my daughter and how many kids have to be injured or killed by this vaccine before some action is taken?

The Gardasil vaccine was not studied for administration with the flu vaccine.  However my daughter received both on the same day.  Samantha as you can see had a medical history of serious illnesses before being vaccinated and now her conditions have increased and she is left with very little quality of life.  She was sick before now she is seriously sick following the vaccinations.  It could be said that the two vaccines together were too much for her system but other moms’ children have suffered severe illnesses, including seizures and only receiving Gardasil.  The point I am making, Samantha with her medical history should never have been vaccinated with Gardasil.  Perhaps you could take the time to find out if Merck ever carried out any trials with Gardasil on impaired immune responses.  I know that in the case of the sister vaccine, Cervarix, no such research was carried out by GlaxoSmithKline on this important area and young people are becoming ill in the UK as well.  Samantha had many medical complaints prior to vaccination, now she is an invalid, in great pain and lives in fear, as do we all, that she will become paralysed.  This is as a result of her being vaccinated and there has been a certain amount of neglect in this case, as there has been in many of the other cases.  All we ask as moms, please someone listen and do something about this before any more young people are harmed by this terrible vaccine.

Mariah Van Vessemmariahinjurydoc

My daughter Mariah. was diagnosed with hodgkins lymphoma 6 weeks after her second dose of gardasil..She discovered a lump on her neck 4 weeks after her injection and was treated for a swollen gland infection at first. The lump got larger after 2 more weeks.She was seventeen and in her last year of high school. This was October 2008. We had a CAT scan and her pediatrician sent us to Schneider”s chidrens hospital that same night. She underwent chemo and radiation and is now in remission. Her lasat cat scan was october 2009. and we will monitor for the next five years. This changed her life forever. The guilt of a parent is difficult and I would never reccomend this vaccine to any girl. My daughter was not sexually active but the media hype for this vaccine was so strong that my daughter and I were on board with it to protect her future. Now look at her future. Always worrying it will come back. Lifetime doctors appointments. Radiation side effects later on… and the list goes on. She is now an honors student at Johnson and Wales University and is happy.


Melodie Simms ( Burlington, WV ) melodiesimmsinjdoc

Melodie Simms at 16 was a healthy, vibrant, vivacious teenager. Very active in school clubs, her church, and community. She was a striaght A Honor’s student with a bright future ahead of her. After coming highly recommended by her pediatrician and my gynecologist, Melodie received the Gardasil Vaccine in August 2007. The vaccine turned her life upside down.

Melodie developed an onset of symptoms approx. 3 weeks after receiving the first dose of the vaccine. The main symptoms were pain in her lower extremities the pain started in her legs and spread to her hips, low back, and mid back. Pain when taking a breath, Heart palpatations. The symptoms did not improve they continued to get worse. Swelling only when she was lying down. The swelling occured in her hands, feet, and face.  Pain and tingling, prickling sensation in her hands and feet. Migraine headaches, dizziness, and difficulty concentrating. The vaccine completely changed her life and she was unable to participate in the activities she once enjoyed. We had to place her on homebound due to the amount of school she had missed. I have taken her to numerous doctors and so far we have gotten no relief or answers for her symptoms.

Melodie has been suffering the affects from this vaccine for 2 1/2 years now. Melodie is now 18 yrs. old. She managed to graduate high school but it was not easy. Her grades dropped and she did not get the scholorships she had strived so hard for. She had to give up activities she so loved. Every day is a struggle for her now. She is attending college but had to opt to go to a college close to home rather than the University she had planned to attend. She struggles everyday but continues to fight forward.
Melodie continues to struggle with a multitude of symptoms.
Her current symptoms are:


This vaccine has changed our family’s life. Melodie is the oldest of 4 children. As her mother it has been very difficult to watch what this vaccine has done to her. And even more difficult to not be able to help her or find answers for her symptoms. It is difficult to watch your child suffer in horrible pain and not be able to help. It is also difficult to know that your child is suffering because of a choice you made. A choice you thought was to help her and instead has harmed her. I wish someone would have told me. Please help spread the word about this vaccine. Tell everyone you know about the dangers of the vaccine and put a stop to the damage it is causing.
This vaccine is harming thousands of girls. The vaccine needs to be taken off the market. The numbers of girls affected is rising everyday.


50 Responses to “Injuries”

  1. Our lives began to change after my (then 16 y/o) daughter took the first gardasil shot in May 2008. She began getting fatigued very easily, sore throats and muscle pains and aches. We did not connect it to the shot, so in Oct. 2008 she took the second shot in the series. Then they began….SEIZURES, one after another after another. She was at a halloween party with her brother and friends, and he phoned me frantically saying they were on the way to the hospital in an ambulance because Shelby was having a seizure. I was called to the high school and told they called an ambulance because Shelby was having a seizure. There have been many trips to the ER. She has lost massive amounts of hair, her joints and muscles are constantly hurting. She had MONO 7 times in less than a year. We have visited 3 neurologists, a neurosurgeon , a cardiac specialist, an ENT, and an Infectious Disease doctor. She has had 2 EEG’s, 2 MRI’s, CT Scans, EKG’s, Echo cardiograms, Cardiac stress tests, she has had vial after vial of blood drawn for numerous tests…ALL IS NORMAL, with the exception of a blood test which revealed that her body does not build immunities to the Epstein Barr Virus (which causes MONO)….we’ve been laughed at by doctors, even had one neurologist roll his eyes, sighed and sucked his teeth during an interview. Her pediatrician suggested that maybe she was “faking the seizures”…..We even made it to a research hospital in our state to be seen my a pediatric neurologist who terminated our visits because he said, “nothing is wrong, she is healthy…go live your life, drive, cheer and have fun”. Only to (the very next day) have a huge grand mal clonic tonic seizure while at cheer practice.
    Her school administrator asked us to take her out of school, as her seizures were “disruptive to classes”. I, instead, rearranged my life to follow her around school (her senior year no less) to care for her, and help her during a seizure. Then she was told “You’ve become a monkey on the backs of your parents”. My daughter was once Class president (for 3 years in a row), she was a cheer leader, drama club, Chemistry club, Biology club, Volunteer at the elementary school and church….very out going, very friendly, very social. During the worst part of the illness, she retreated to a shy, scared little girl, afraid to leave my side. Was told she could no longer cheer lead, was suggested that “because of her medical condition she NOT run for class president her senior year”. She has had to rearrange her life alot because she has tried very hard to please those “powers that be”. She did end up graduating from high school early, as to not have to deal with then any longer. In Sept. of 2009 she had her very large, very infected tonsils removed. She began to feel better in Sept. ’09, her hair began to grow back, her eyes began to sparkle again, she was looking and feeling better. We began a “seizure-free count”….made it 102 days….then on Dec. 23, 2009 they began again!!! Hair loss has started again, the rash on her face is back, her muscles and joints are painful, seizures are coming 2-3 a day, it is starting all over again……we are now at day 17 of a down ward spiral…..she is fatigued, weak and hurting……..when will it end??????? But this I know, Jesus Christ is OUR ONLY HOPE!! He keeps us going and my daughter and I are closer than ever. We are fighting this fight alone with GOD as our PILOT!!! We hold on tightly to HIS HOPE for a better future.

  2. I am confused, because in the reports it said there were only a handful of deaths and serious reactions…on this site alone I’ve seen many deaths have there really been? I am 24 and had 2 shots and have been experiencing strange things lately like severe panic attacks where i uncontrollably shake…please what should I do? Can I detox, or get a pill to get this crud out of me? please email me at

  3. Hi, my name is agatha and I am a 25 y/o med school student. I have been following some cases of adverse events of gardasil. I had one shot myself and had a strange feeling about it (not physiological but more like intuition) and so did my mom, so I never followed through with the rest of the shots. I figured I’ll just let my immune system devour the little viruses and thats that. I’ve noticed that these severe adverse events are occuring in young girls with combination of other vaccines and birth control pills. If you feel something is wrong, go see your doctor and I also think if you are taking any birth control pills or having other shots (like flu), you should be careful with having another gardisil vaccine. I hope this helps.

    Take care!

  4. Thank you thank you to the wonderful person who created this. I want to personally write each one of these moms and young ladies to tell you how sorry I am for your heartache. I am a mother of 4, three of them daughters who will never see this vaccine in their lives, nor have they had any of their other shots. I feel they have been divinely protected b/c of my research I did when the 1st was a baby. I hope you know that your stories might just make the suffering of another girl..”ONE LESS.” (BLAH!!! :) Keep hanging in there and GOD BLESS!
    what can I do as a mom to stop this???

  5. i hav a daughter whom has recvd these injections an now is seein some life threatning side effects…no one can figure it out we hav seen Drs all over the US…a friend gave me this website an the accounts are so similar…however our pediatrician is blowin me off sayin its not possible that this was caused from vaccine…how do i find out if that is tru?? who will see her? is there a test to check or a cure to stop these episodes? please help if u can….

  6. Mi hija se vacunó el 06/10/09 de la primera dosis de Gardasil, a partir de 13/10/09 se inicio nuestro calvario. Ha estado hospitalizada en dos ocasiones, con un duración de ingreso de unos diez días en cada caso. Se le han practicado todos las pruebas posibles: punción lumbar, colonoscopia con biopsia, gammagrafia osea, de ganglios, pet-tac, todas las radiografías posibles, ecografías en todo su cuerpo, análisis, cultivos…., tras todo esto seguimos sin diagnóstico.

    Los médicos no te confirman que el origen sea la vacuna pero los más legales no lo niegan pero nunca lo pondrán en su informe. Ahora esta tomando corticoides pero los síntomas no remiten. Sus primeros síntomas fueron fiebre alta, alteración en todo sus análisis sanguíneos, el bazo el hígado inflamados, su sistema inmunológico se había vuelto loco, luego siguieron los dolores musculares, jaquecas constantes y cansancio perpetuo. A día de hoy, seguimos igual, nadie puede ayudarla. Estamos desesperados y solicitamos ayuda, necesitamos por favor que alguien nos informe sobre lo que podemos hacer para ayudar a nuestra hija, a pesar de que hemos acudido a la homeopatía, rogamos que si alguien puede orientarnos contactes con nosotros.

    My daughter was vaccinated on 06/10/09 the first dose of Gardasil, from our ordeal was started 13/10/09. He has been hospitalized twice, with a duration of ten days income in each case. You have performed all possible tests: lumbar puncture, colonoscopy with biopsy, bone scan, lymph, pet-tac, all possible x-rays, ultrasounds throughout your body, analysis, cultures …., After all this still no diagnosis.

    Doctors do not confirm that the origin is the vaccine, but most do not deny legal but never put in his report. Now he is taking steroids but the symptoms do not subside. His first symptoms were high fever, altered all his blood tests, swollen spleen, liver, your immune system had gone mad, then followed by muscle aches, headaches constant and perpetual tiredness. Today, we are alike, no one can help. We are desperate and request help, we need someone please tell us what we can do to help our daughter, even though we have turned to homeopathy, please if someone can guide you contact us.

  7. I visited your site after meeting a young girl that has had severe side effects from Garadsil. She suffered paralysis (thankfully she now walks)for a year after.
    She also has total hair loss.
    I work in the hair replacement field and I’ve never seen anything like this. Her follicles are present but the hair will not grow above the skin. Even in cases of Alopecia Totalis (Total hair loss) there are no follicles present. VERY strange. On the few rare occasions that any sparse hair has grown above the skin it has “melted away” in the shower.
    Considering the gravity of the possible side effects, I know, this is minor. That being said, I would like to know of similar hair loss cases, as I haven’t read about it anywhere. This IS NOT a typical type of hair loss.
    My prayers are with all of these women and girls. I will be an advocate as best I can be and talk to anyone who will listen about the dangers of this vaccine.
    God Bless

  8. There is no describing the helpless feeling Gardasil has caused many parents. I am scared we are not through the problems of Gardasil for our 16 year old daughter yet. She had her first Gardasil shot in early spring 2008. Later that spring her health issues started. It seemed that every two weeks she had a throat infection (sometimes strep — sometimes not) or a sinus infection. Nothing out of the norm, just a lot of them, so we thought nothing of it. Our daughter is an athlete and has been playing highly competitive Travel Softball for 6 years, and struggled with joint pain for the 1st time that summer as well.

    In August of 08 she got her 2nd booster, right before school started. Although she had been training and regularly running 6 to 8 miles day –with extreme ease, she found herself struggling to keep up in Cross Country. She had trouble breathing and would become dizzy and increasingly vomited during practice. Because she was still struggling with regular throat and sinus infections, we just thought she was sick and run down. 1 month into it, she was diagnosed with Mono and was unable to finish the season. Her Mono was severe and lasted over 3 months. Her liver and spleen were enlarged and she ran non stop high fevers, and was extremely fatigued. Early spring they tested her for several auto immune diseases, because she was sick all the time, but everything came back fine. By June of 09, she was starting to feel better, but still had throat and sinus infections, requiring antibiotics every 3 or 4 weeks.

    On Aug 24, 2009, she received her 3rd Gardasil shot and her life went down hill from there. Within a month she started complaining of severe headaches, stomach aches and back pain, which she never had before. Her periods became extremely heavy and came every 2 weeks and she started having trouble sleeping. Her insomnia, abdominal pain and headaches got worse and she continued to get throat infections. My daughter now spent 80% of her time in bed exhausted and yet was up pacing most nights, with arm and leg twitches and tremors. She was missing school several days a week, taking antibiotics for her throat all the time. She complained about being exhausted and having pains in her stomach and back all the time, and although the doctors could identify something was wrong with her throat, they could never find a reason her body was in pain. She stopped going out and no longer answered friend’s calls. She became combative, moody and withdrawn. At the end of December, it was decided that we needed to have her tonsils and adenoids removed. She had a severe reaction to the narcotics and spent 2 weeks vomiting and unable to hold food down. It was now March and my A/B student had missed over 30 days of school and seeing a psychiatrist. It was time to go back, and three days into she collapsed. The doctors diagnosed her with severe depression and anxiety and pulled her out of school. She missed her entire high school softball season and is still working to finish the semester with a homebound tutor.
    After being home for 2 weeks, she started running unexplained low grade fevers, still vomited and still had severe headaches, back and abdominal pain. The psychiatrist agreed, something is physically wrong. We took her back to her doctor, and he now identified that her immune and nervous systems were impacted by Gardasil. Although he doesn’t know what it did or how to reverse the effects, he agrees her health was severely impacted and declined with each Gardasil booster. He has filed a VAERS (?) with the FDA, indicating her adverse reaction to the vaccine and has referred us to an adolescent disease specialist, hoping they can figure out what to do.

    Our daughter was a bright, vibrant, active girl before Gardasil. We thank God every day it has not taken her life, but we still fear it has changed it forever.

    There is a portion of the population who suffer similar enough issues after taking the vaccine, which tells you it is unsafe for the masses. I hope no one else will have to lose their daughter before the FDA re- evaluates this vaccine.

  9. My daughter is suppose to get her second shot today. I am not allowing her to have it! She is already experiencing numbness and at times the inability of movement in her hands. Her first and final shot was three months ago.

  10. My name is Courtney and I am now 25 years old. I had the first Gardasil vaccine on Dec. 17,2007. It sounded like a great idea: my mom is a cancer survivor, I was 22 years old and sexually active. Preventing cervical cancer sounded great. On Dec. 27th I became very ill. I was throwing up and had an excruciating headache. The following morning, I went to a walk-in clinic (assuming that I had the flu), where I was told that I had a migraine and a urinary tract infection. Then I was sent home…

    After 10 hours of not moving from my bed (not even to go to the bathroom), I began throwing up again. My mom decided that if nothing else I was dehydrated and so she drove me to the emergency room. Within 5 hours, I had fallen into a coma. I spent 9 days in a coma and 14 days on a ventilator. After 10 days of testing, the doctor’s finally determined that the Gardasil vaccine had caused something called acute disseminated ensephelomyolitis (ADEM). I had lesions on almost every level of my brain. It took 1000 milligrams of steroids for me to wake up from the coma. When I woke up I was unable to move my legs and my short term memory was not working. After 18 days in the ICU, I was transferred to an inpatient rehabilitation hospital. I had to relearn how to walk, write, swallow, and basically relearn my life all over again. After 28 days I went home with a walker.

    It took me 10 months of agonizing doctor’s appointments where I was told that I would never fully recover again and I would spend the rest of my life on drugs. I had lost all of my independence and relied fully on my parents. I finally went to the MAYO clinic and went through a three-week pain rehabilitation program. I was able to get off of 8 major medications including drugs such as fetanyl pain patches, percocet, lorazapam, neurontin, etc. I was taught how to cope with chronic pain through cognitive-behavioral therapy.

    Today I am doing much better, but I am still suffering from side effects. My ring and pinky fingers on both of my hands are completely numb. Both of my feet are completely numb as well. My eye sight has changed close to 30 times since the coma. It has gotten worse and then gotten better and I have ended up using reading glasses due to double vision. Finally, at 25 years old, I suffer from what the doctor’s call a “neurogenic bladder.” I have no control over my bladder and have been forced to take daily medications. With some life adjustments, I am now living on my own and working towards my master’s degree in Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling. I have decided to go on to help people who are suffering the way that I did. I truly believe that the only reason that I am alive today is because of the tremendous support of my family and friends and my will to help others. Finding this website has really helped me in seeing that I am not alone and I am not the only victim of the negative effects of the Gardasil vaccine.

  11. The illnesses, disorders, disabilies and deaths Gardasil and other vaccines cause are NOT “side”-effects – they are the ONLY effect vaccines have.

    Vaccination is an organised criminal enterprise, dressed up as disease prevention as a marketing ploy.

    Parents who subscribe to the false belief that vaccines prevent diseases are unwittingly exposing their child(ren) to a huge risk. Apart from the financial gains for the medical-pharmaceutical establishment, vaccines are of no benefit whatsoever.

  12. Now I’m scared.
    My 13 year old daughter Jade had her first shot last spring as advised by our doctor. She went into a seizure as they were getting the band aid ready. Btw, just to be clear; Jade has NEVER had any problems with receiving shots. Not a single issue in all these years making the seizure more concerning, let alone the collective symptoms I have been seeing. I told my doctor we would not be continuing with the vaccination seris. Believe it or not I was pushed to continue with follow up shots; that seemed odd, especially after I did a little research later that day on this vaccination.

    She started suffering from headaches, body/joint aches, neck and back pain, vision issues, insomnia and fatigue, moodiness (she has even commented on this), stomach aches and nausea back in June/July.
    I have been assuming all these things were due to different causes;

    the head aches and blurry vision (i.e. an appointment for a vision check),
    back, neck and body aches (she’s been tubing at the lake frequently i.e. chrio appointments to realign),
    fatigue and insomnia, moodiness and body aches (i.e. normal adolescent changes)
    stomach pain and nausea (i.e. not eating right, not getting enough water and her period)

    Putting them all together;
    she matches many of the stories in this link.

    I’ll be making another appointment for her to have a physical (she just had one 3 weeks ago) this time with specific tests after reading these stories. I hope I didn’t do this to her.

    FYI, I was asked at my 12 year old son’s physical to give him the new “shot” specifically for vaccinating boys that’s out now; I refused.

    I’m the one that always preached that as a society we shouldn’t put total faith in the hands of a stranger (someone without personal regards towards us) that “practices” medicine. I never gave vaccinations a thought however.

    Cindy, if you see this thank you again for sending me this link; I will pass it on and hope that others do the same….

  13. I am a single mother of 4,3 girls and 1 boy, ages 23,14,13,10. Because the Doctors tell us to, we as parents let them give our children these vaccinations. The doctors and schools push it on us. Unless we are informed otherwise we believe the doctors because they are supposed to know whats best for us and our children. I have allowed them to vaccinate my children from birth till last year when i started to hear of problems with these child hood vaccines. At that time i decided to out a stop to that. My children will no longer receive them.
    I will be praying for all these young people and for the ones not on this site. And i am thankful to the ones responsible for this site, i pray it helps stop this terrible thing. God bless you all. Also if any one knows of other web sites on the effects of the other child vaccines please let me know. I would like to convince my oldest daughter to stop the vaccines on my grand babies. Thank you again and God bless you. Janice

  14. Although my heart breaks for the thousands of Gardasil victims, I am encouraged by this wonderful website that somehow,someday, we can get this “snake oil” vaccine banned once and for all. As a society, we have all been brainwashed into believing that vaccines are for the good of public health, and that doctors know best. This vaccine is nothing more than a SALE, that doctors push on you to make money and retire sooner. As a mother of three girls (12, 9, & 8), I have not been directly impacted from this vaccine; however our pediatrician was pushy about my girl taking it. Thank God I went home and researched this nightmare vaccine. I now work to educate friends about this nightmare vaccine and keep a small handout of scary facts, list of ingredients, and websites for follow-up research. I pray to God that these beautiful, innocent victims will overcome their Gardasil struggles and recover.

  15. My 16 year old daughter Donna has been struggling with health issues for the past two years, ever since she got her second Gardasil shot. She has had chronic hives, joint pain, weakness, muscle problems, feeling like she is going to pass out, as well as many other issues. She has been to many doctors, specialists. She has had CT scans, MRI’s, brain scans, muscle tests, nerve tests….etc. Now she is having panic attacks. All of this because of Gardasil. I am so worried that it will just keep getting worse and worse. She feels awful all of the time. She never has a day when she says she feels good. I don’t know what to do.

  16. Nancy,

    I am so sorry to hear about what your daughter is going through. I am sending you an email.


  17. I received the shot in December of 2008 at the insistance of my family doctor. I was well outside the recomended age range at 29, but allowed myself to be badgered into it. By Febuary of 2009 I had developed full blown Type 1 diabetes. I had just had a full physical in November that included blood work and thus knew I was not diabetic or even pre-diabetic before the shot. Our family had never had a case of diabetes on either side. My heart goes out to everyone whose lives have been destroyed by Merck.

  18. Dear Victims of Gardasil Vaccine damage,

    I know of someone in the United States that can be of great help to all of you. His name is Doctor Rashid Buttar.
    And yes,he is a real Doctor. He actually helps Vaccine damage Victims
    I just know that Natural Therapies work. My heart goes out to all of you.

    Kind regards,

  20. Hello,
    I am not a doctor but I have an experience with gluten sensitivity, when the imune system is weak, like when taking vaccine, it can start a lot of health problems and autoimmune illness. Therefore, I suggest to take off gluten for a month from the diet and to see if there is improvement. If there is improvement it means you should take off gluten forever.
    It worth tring.
    If you tried and it helped I’ll be glad if you write to me.

  21. Hi Anat,

    Thanks for your comment. I know of quite a few girls who had been advised by their medical care provider to take glutten out of their diet, as well as going back to a more whole food, fresh fruit and vegetable diet. I would say a good percentage of them have indeed seen some improvement by making these changes. Of course, I do not know of one girl that has been recovered, but as sick as a lot of these girls are, any improvement is welcomed. Thank you so much for your suggestion and your comment.

  22. I have not seen any more commercials for this vaccination and have long known of the negative side effects being reported. Because of this I was under the impression that it must have been pulled off of the market.
    I went to my doctor a few days ago and she suggested gardasil to me ,, and I laughed a little. Are you serious? i said to her. She went on to say that there has not been any reported negative side effects and that it prevents cervical cancer. How can a doctor say that? They should be REQUIRED to inform people that THERE HAVE BEEN MANY (THOUSANDS) SIDE EFFECTS reported. There is no chance in hell i would get this vaccination. But there are many other patients who believe everything their doctors say and would probably get this vaccination. It is so messed up that in our society people go to doctor to keep themselves healthy and instead have drugs, vaccinations, and unnecessary testing pushed upon them. In the end it is all about MONEY NOT HEALTH. While i was at the doctor this paSt time she suggested 4 drugs and 5 vaccinations i should take . One of the drugs cost $230 a month …. the medical industry is a money making business NOT HEALTH CARE anymore

  23. My daughter Tori is 14 and recieved her first shot a few weeks ago. Every year (since she was in 5th grade) the doctor tried to talk me into getting this shot. Tori is in 8th grade now so when we went to get the yearly physical for sports the doctor started in on me again about this shot. They made me feel like a bad mom for not letting her have it, so I finally relented. BAD DECISION! The day after she got the shot she had what I have come to call “her episodes”. She had: blurry vision, auras, dizziness, face/arms/hands tingling, muslce weakness, heart/chest pains and hand and leg tremors. She had to sit down an could not walk. This lasted 15 minutes and then she was fine. The very next day she was cheering at a football game and she started weaving/walking out onto the football field during the game. One of the cheerleaders grabbed her and brought her back. She had to sit down and had all the same symptons again. (Dizziness, arms tingling, chest pains, abdomen pains, weakness in her legs, etc)
    She did not remember that she walked out on the field. I thought she must have had a short term reaction to the shot so I was doing some research online and found this site. When I took her to the doctor he dismissed my fears about the shot and said he thought maybe it was a migrane without the head pain. Huh? He said it was impossible that these symptons were caused by the shot. He did order blood tests and an EKG which all came back normal. She has had two more epsidoes since then. This last time was after her school baskebtall game. She was sitting on the sidelines watching the next game when her friends saw her eyes roll back in her head and she fell over. She fainted and was out for about 30 seconds. She woke up and did not remmeber what happened but she was shaking and said that she could not feel her legs. She said that she had hand tremors all that day. They called 911 and the medics checked her out and said her heart was racing but other than that her vitals seemed to be back to normal. She is usually fine abuot 10 – 15 minutes after the episodes. I am taking her back to the doctor to see if I can get a referal to someone. (Not sure if it should be a neurologist or a cardiologist but we have to start somewhere.) My fears are that nothing is going to show up and she is going to continue to have these episodes. Needless to say she will not be getting the other shots. She plays travel (year round) basketball and wants to get a college scholarship playing basketball so I hope she can stay healthy enough to keep working toward her dream.

    Thank you so much for this website. It is comforting to know that I am not crazy and that other girls have had similar things happen to them when the doctors don’t want to admit it.

  24. I feel so much for all of you going through this. Thank God your children are alive. All of the symptoms described sound alot like an autoimmune reaction affecting the nervous system, with likely alot of excitotoxity. Please understand that neurological disorders can take a long time to heal, so keep up the fight and be courageous. Unfortunately, neurologists aren’t often informed about these things, since this is a vaccine induced problem that has not been studied and is not in their textbooks. In the meantime, get informed as you can and keep letting others know your stories. Also, try reading books by Dr. Russell Blaylock, a neurosurgeon who has written alot about the dangers of vaccines.

  25. For Bridget’s family – I find it absolutely appalling that after everything your daughter has gone through that your pediatrician would even let it enter her mind that somehow the “benefit to the majority” would somehow make what happened to your daughter, and other young women, acceptable. It is NOT acceptable. Certainly pediatricians must learn that human life is more important than the statistics. As someone who has suffered nerve damage and severe, long lasting neurogolical side effects from nerve pain medication as a result of some new “FDA approved” procedure that I later found out was very dangerous, I can only feel your pain. I am so sorry for what your family has gone through.

  26. So, so sad reading all these stories. It’s amazing that doctors can blindly assert whatever they want and the parents are supposed to believe them.
    I don’t have anything helpful to add, except that I think high-dose Vitamin C would help any of these girls? I take Lipo-spheric Vitamin C and it has kept me from serious illness for the past 5 years.

  27. My heart goes out to all here suffering.

    Please look into natural therapies and detoxification offered by naturopaths as they have helped my own CNS symptoms.

    God Bless

  28. I had ulcerative colitis – I took heavy med dosages for over 4 years and nothing helped. Then I went to a provider who does Indigo Bio Feedback – and have since recommended the same to a dear young woman who had the Gardasil immunization shots – she is having the same symptons stated above – now she is getting relief from Bio Feedback. I was able to get off all meds and back to energy – what a relief – but more important I can spread the word on how Bio Feedback can help others. I hope others find this way to healing.

  29. I thank my sister for informing me about this website. I have a 13 year old daughter and have for years been told by her doctor to have her get this shot which I have refused. I to have been made to feel that I was a bad mother but I said it’s her body and when she is old enough she can make that decision herself. I have a niece that has had some problems since receiving the shot and the medical field is still pushing it. Like the comment before me my heart goes out to these girls and their families who also suffer.

  30. A month later of getting the first shot this thing appeared on my tongue a month later. A year later after not healing and causing pain to eat I got it biopsy and it was oral cancer. Don’t smoke/Drink/No family history of cancer/One sex partner. I will alway stick to gardisal giving me the cancer. Don’t get the shot!!!

  31. Omigosh! That’s terrible! How are you doing now? I’m so sorry!

  32. I have a 15 year old daughter who has the shot, the first being in October of 2011 and the last one in March of this year. My daughter was a happy child, alot of friends, full of life. I had noticed how my daughter seemed depressed all the time, spent all her time in her room by herself, she started passing out, losing weight, tired all the time, angry, she has had many throat infections, cysts on her ovaries and so on…. Two weeks ago, she came to me and asked for help, she said she felt very depressed and was thinking of suicide, I took her to see someone right away, and in the past 2 weeks she has been 3 times.
    She told me the other day at the hospital that she has been feeling depressed, hurts all over, tired for about 6 months.
    Someone posted on Facebook the other day, about a young girl dying from the HPV vaccine and it made me curious, so I found this site, I am freaking out, could all this be caused by the vaccine, what are we suppose to do now?

  33. Hi everyone! First. off lets pray for each others families and ill children that The Lord Our Savior would ease the burden on us! My daughter Talisa R Palmer was a National Honors Scholar, a Honor Society Member, and Scholar Athlete. She played on Philadelphia Phoenix AAU travel teams, Deptford NJ Township travel teams, and High School Basketball team. She was accepted for a Biology degree into prestiguous Phila College of Science. She began working at her first job in the labeling dept at a medicinal plant called Catalent, in NE Phila. She is doing so so well in life and is the Music and Youth Leader at church.
    In November of 2011 while in her bed she became suddenly paralyzed ! She text with her moving hand for my wife and I to come in her room. We freaked! She was admitted and after some persuasion, kept for observation. After 14 days of testing everything from her spine to tick bite, they sent her home after getting 60% of her motor skills back from blood treatments. (IVIG) . They treated her for GBS Guillain Barre Syndrome and said they dont know how it came upon her having not given blood or taken a flu shot.
    i honestly feel we are under some kind of attack on america by attacking our precious ones, our children! A few Christmas’ ago our children were attacked through tainted toys. There is NO EXPLANATION for all these sudden, ill once strong vibrant youth!
    Someone please start an Interest Group on this! ? My email is add names call FoxNews in your area as i will here!
    God bless us all!

  34. I am 27 and I too was talked into getting the shot during a routine yearly check-up. I was told there are no side-effects (other than discomfort at the injection site). I was given the shot on May 7th- exactly one week ago- and as of Friday, May 11th, I had horrible discomfort in my legs. Everything from my waist down is so uncomfortable. It’s that constant insatiable age to stretch my legs out..but no matter what I do, it won’t go away. I don’t know whether it would be best to exercise them or lay down and rest them. I don’t know if it’s a “tired” feeling. I’m afraid they will give out on me. There is no pain, no headaches, and no dizziness or upset stomach symptoms. I called my gyno and spoke to the nurse. She said it’s not from the Gardasil or the birth control and told me to contact a general physician. What should I request? I have an appointment tomorrow with a general doc. I do not plan on having the 2nd or 3rd shots. Advice, please!

  35. I had 2 gardasil shots just before my 26th birthday I did not have the 3rd one an thank god cause I might not be alive. I am now 30yrs old and I am continuing to decline. Right after both shots I had bumps at the site for a couple weeks and flu like symptoms. I called my doctor and she said it wasnt related and I must have some kind of virus. I have 3 little boys that need a momma and I fear for my life! I have so so many symptoms and I was healthy before. I have temperary paralysis to my entire body and when this happens it attacks my lungs too so I can get enough oxygen to speak above a whisper. I lay there waiting to die because thats what it fells like… Its so scary!!! Its torture!!! I have severe memory loss and I could cry because I cant even look at baby photos and tell my precious boys apart or remember much of their milestones!!! I have headaches, constant jerking and shaking, lose of sensations to my extremities, severe back pain, muscle pain and joint pain and my lower back around my spine swells up and retains fluid, my hands and feet swell and turn red and feel like they are on fire or they are bluish white and numb or tingling, my stomach swells like I am pregnant I have severe constipation, I have nausea or I vomit with zophran daily, my stomach constantly hurts aspecially after meals, my vision goes in and out, My ears ring my legs go out, my balance is off, heart palpatations and the list goes on! Its been 4 years and I am worse now than ever!!!!!!

  36. I’ve stumbled upon this page because I received my first gardasil shot just a few days ago. I started with a sore little bump and now the bump where the injection site only gets more swollen. I’ve been nauseated and have had a constant headache since I received the shot. If I would have known then what I know now – I would have never have gotten it. I’m hoping to detox and get this crap out of my system.. I have a doctors appointment in a couple days and I’m going to give them an earful. I asked about the side effects and said they we’re pretty much non existent and the pros weigh out the cons. What a mistake. To think I consented to such a poison!

    How did it go? Have you started the detox yet? Have you improved at all?

    We are here if you need us. You will be in our thoughts and prayers!

  39. I ended up on this web site trying to find answers to my daughters sudden illness that presents like a mood disorder with symptons similar to what I have read in a lot of these post. I am also trying to find out if there is a link between the Garasil shot and anti-MNDAR which has similar sympton of many of the young ladies in the post as well. I encourage the parents and women to read up on this disorder as well which is physical not mental. My prayers and thoughts with you all as you press forward in your search for answers. God Bless you all.

  40. I just got the second shot yesterday. Today i have a headache, body aches, dizzyness, and my back and legs hurt so bad. Also feel very weak. I called my doctor today she said theres no way its from the shot. I dont know what to do right now.

  41. My sister died from complications from LUPUS in 2012. My sister was a Doctor of Chemistry and so active and talented. Before she finished her studies she took Gardasil. And from then it was all downhill. It started with pericarditis and then for 4 years LUPUS attacked every organ in her body. She lived with me in the Caribbean for 2 years and I had her on an holistic diet,Herbs, vegetables, yoga the works she went into remission . She even started working again. She then went back to the states and they were is shock that she was doing so well they then put her on their regimen which damaged her kidneys. She died at 32 of kidney failure. I really implore people to investigate this drug properly before taking it

  42. I took my Grand-daughter, Katelyn, who is 11 years old to pick up her schedule for the new school year on July 24, 2013. I was told by the school nurse that Katelyn needed to have a Tdap and menengitis immunizations before she could start school on August 5th. I took her to the free health clinic that the county offers on July 25, 2013 to get these immunizations. While I was there they told me I should get her the Gardasil immunization too. I went ahead and had her receive the first one at that time not knowing anything about this immunization. 13 days after receiving this shot on August 14, 2013 she had a seizure. She has NEVER had a seizure before in her life. She was at school eating lunch when she said that there was a sound in her ears then went unconcious. When she woke up 2 minutes later the school nurse was there with the wheel chair and escorted her to the office. Katelyn was very confused and tired. The nurse called me about the seizure and I quickly picked her up and took her to the Phoenix Children’s Hospital where they ran lab test which all came back normal. They sent us home with a referral to have a follow up with a neurologist for a MRI and EEG as soon as possible. She has Autism so doesn’t communicate about health problems like a normal child would, and after looking back she complained about back pain and her brain hurting after receiving this shot. I did not connect it with the shot until I came across this web-site today. I want to get her help, and we are taking her in for the MRI and the EEG, but I have a feeling they will come back normal too. What can I do to help her? I don’t want her to suffer because I did something ignorant, and did not research the gardasil immunization before consenting for her to get it. I know we will not get the last two. Any advice you could give me would be appreciated. Thanks.

  43. I am thankful I found this website through a post on Facebook by other moms I know. My 13 year old daughter was getting her required shot for 7th grade, when the doctor recommended going ahead and getting the Gardasil vaccine. My daughter ended up jerking her leg when they went to give the Gardasil shot and so she didn’t receive it. We will not be getting this series of shots! Thank you for sharing your stories and I will share your website with others.

  44. Good grief!! For Doctors to prescribe this they must be on a commission type kickback, I mean surely it should have been pulled by now!!

  45. For those injured by Gardasil, get yourself a reputable holistic practitioner to help you heal against the affects!

  46. I am a 21 year old student in college who believes gardsil has made me or contributed to me being chronically ill for the past two years. Before college, I was never sick accept maybe a cold or two and had near perfect attendance. I was an honors student, very involved, and have a loving family. My mom had me get the shot before going to college. I know she did it out of love, but she does not believe that it has hurt me. A few months after getting the last shot, I got bronchitis, sinus infections, ear infections. Soon, I developed mono. After that, I develop feminine issues, including having a large blood clot though doctors REFUSE to say anything was wrong! NO DOCTOR WOULD HELP ME! As if I LIED about having a blood clot come out of me. This vaccine is a horrible scam and must be stopped before it hurts more young women! -Peace and Love, Lauren

  47. Hello, I stumbled upon this site after trying to find out more info on the adverse side effects of the Gardasil vaccine. My niece had her 1st Gardasil shot in July 2013 and experienced terrible stomach pain/nausea as well as total body achiness a few days after the shot. She had the 2nd Gardasil vaccine in September 2013 and about a week later began experiencing terrible pain and spasms in her shoulders, fatigue, tingling in her arms, brain fog, headaches and just a feeling that her muscles are deteriorating. She is 13. Before the vaccines, she was a healthy happy teen. Blood work has come back normal, and her pediatrician denies that the vaccine had any adverse effects on her.
    Has anyone had any luck recently with a diagnosis, treatment plan, holistic approaches to helping these poor children and young women begin to heal? Any help would be appreciated.

  48. One thing health care providers have failed to mention throughout this entire fiasco are the actual study numbers. Late summer 2013, Merck admitted that Guardisil trials were performed on male subjects only, yet the drug was initially marketed toward females. They further admitted they had no idea what the side effects in females would actually be. Now they are trying to backpedal and produce study documentation that simply does not exist. As a utilization review nurse in a major insurance company, I was authorizing at least 5 total hysterectomies daily on women under 30, many in their early 20′s for dysfuntional uterine bleeding, ovarian dysfuction, and severe endometriosis. I have been a nurse for over 30 years and am astonished at the stark, blatant facts. These surgeries do in fact coinside with the introduction of Guardisil into this age group. I have had discussions with many physicians on this topic and the vast majority agree. There is proof out there that this is a bad drug. To anyone experiencing any type of side effect after receiving Guardisil, DEMAND that your issues are reported to the FDA. There is a form that you and your provider must fill out. Also, take it upon yourself to contact the FDA on your own- phone number is online at the FDA website for your area. Contact yhe CDC in Atlanta- they will give you a complaint registration number as well as the CDC. Do your part in the paper trail, do not trust your doctor tondo it for you. They make fantastic amounts of money in the form of bonuses for pushing specific drugs and immunizations. Stand up, speak out, strike back!

  49. My daughter seemed ok after the first injection. Stupidly I let her have the second dose… within 4 days she developed severe nausea, headaches, fatigue that lasted for 2 years.I watched her become so ill not knowing if it would ever end. All the medical tests showed nothing wrong. She lost a lot of weight and struggled to continue school. Very sensitive and still sleeps long hours. Thank goodness though the nausea has settled and she seems much better now. It was a long two years of dr’s saying she had ‘stress’ symptoms… at the best time of her life? What a load of rubbish. Almost overnight she went from a happy healthy girl full of energy and appetite into a shell of herself. Needless to say I refused the third shot, despite dr’s saying that her symptoms had nothing to do with the vaccine… yeah right.

  50. i live in the UK. I refused to let my daughter get this shot when she was still in High School. Another girl refused whose Father is a doctor. He would not let her have it. I am sorry to read these stories, it is a travesty.
