Out of curiosity, what do others think about this? Is it worth getting this vaccine at our age? Would it kill already existing virus in the body? I saw this and was wondering about it. Thanks for sharing.

With the FDA approving the HPV vaccine for those over 26, there must be scientific proof that its been found effective. Im sorry but havent had the time to research this in depth. Im hoping to one day this week to read more about this than the article I posted. A few years ago I heard about the Guardisil shot being studied to see if it was effective in older people and those already infected with HPV. Brian Hill (OCFs founder) is very knowledgeable and sits on important boards (as an average person who is not a doctor, PHD or in the medical field this is a rarity) where he learns about this sort of thing way before these articles come out. He's very lucky to get in depth details directly from researchers and top medical professionals. I should call Brian, I can probably find out more from talking with him than by trying to find the published study results.

If I could get a shot to eliminate my chances of getting HPV+ OC, cervical, penile, and/or anal cancer as well as genital warts to me it would definitely be worth it. Unfortunately Im now past the age limit so Im not eligible to get the shot.
