I'm not really sure but I'll tell you my experience with it (non eventful) and my personal 2 cents.
If I had male chromosomes I would personally skip it. While it reportedly prevents 90% of the wart causing HPV, it's really intended to prevent
cervical cancer in women, and doesn't protect against all strains of HPV. Most men reportedly show no signs of having the disease so when they do find
out they have it, it can be a surprise.
I'm a woman, I had the shots when I was about 15 or 16 I think- I did not have an adverse reaction to my knowledge.
My son was born on the spectrum, and then I was placed shortly after he was diagnosed. Or labeled. Whatever- he's a cool little dude no matter what
name they put on his behavior.
My best advice to you is to practice the safest sex you can. It's okay to be selective, it's okay to be free, but be S A F E, and although it can be
expensive, get tested regularly. I get blood work done once a year now. When I was younger I would go in and get a test before having a new partner,
and a test a few months later to check in. I might just have been paranoid but I did what I could to be fair to myself and others.
Best wishes regardless if you get the shot or not.
PS I couldn't find any information about HPV vaccines affecting those with Autism but if you have a link to something or if anyone else does please
send it my way because my son has autism and I want to be aware of the changing studies and information that's available out there.
