Yet another reason to never let your daughter receive an HPV vaccination. New research, published this month in the American Journal of Reproductive Immunology, appears to show a link between the vaccines (Gardasil and Cervarix) and primary ovarian failure, or premature menopause. Fast-tracked to the market in many countries, the vaccine has never been studied for its effects on ovary health or fertility.
The study, conducted in Israel and Italy, documents three cases of young women who stopped having their periods after receiving doses of the HPV vaccination. According to the study, the patients had experienced normal sexual development until that point and had no genetic abnormalities.
The study authors wrote that auto-antibodies, specifically anti-ovarion and anti-thyroid antibodies, were detected in bloodwork. As a result, they concluded that the vaccine had triggered an inflammatory response.
“We documented here the evidence of the potential of the HPV vaccine to trigger a life-disabling autoimmune condition,” the study said, noting “uncertainty” about the long-term benefits of the vaccine.
In addition to the amenorrhea, the patients also experienced some common symptoms associated with the HPV vaccine, including nausea, headache and sleep disturbances.
Score another one for the eugenicists.
