Introduction to Cervarix Injection

Cervarix Injection consists of the active constituent Human Papilloma Virus vaccine. It is indicated to protect your body against infections and diseases caused by the human papillomavirus types 6, 11, 16, and 18. These virus types cause diseases like pre-cancerous lesions in the female genital areas (cervix, vulva, vagina) and anal regions and cause genital warts in males and females. HPV types 16 and 18 are responsible for approximately 70-80% of cervical and anal cancer cases, and HPV types 6 and 11 are responsible for almost 90 % of genital wart cases. 

The HPV virus is a common sexually transmitted infection that can lead to various health problems, including genital warts and various types of cancer, including cervical, anal, penile, and throat cancer. Cervarix Injection does not cure the disease; it protects against it. It does not affect people who are already infected with the virus. This vaccine is only intended to prevent these diseases. The vaccine is most effective when given before a person becomes sexually active, as it is designed to protect against HPV strains commonly transmitted through sexual contact. Cervarix Injection is generally considered safe and effective and has been shown to significantly reduce the risk of HPV-related health problems. There are no known interactions with other vaccines.

Uses of Cervarix Injection

Cervarix Injection is used in the treatment of the following:

  • Cervical cancer
  • Anal cancer
  • Genital warts
  • Oropharyngeal cancer

Therapeutic Effects of Cervarix Injection

The primary therapeutic effect of the Cervarix Injection is the prevention of infection, with the strains of HPV most strongly associated with genital warts and various types of cancer, including cervical, anal, penile, and throat cancer. This vaccine can help reduce the risk of developing these strains by preventing infection with these strains.

Interaction of Cervarix Injection with other drugs

Inform your healthcare provider about all your medicines, including prescription, over-the-counter, nutritional or vitamin supplements, and herbal products. Certain medications may interact with Cervarix Injection and reduce effectiveness by causing undesirable side effects.

Word of Advice

The Cervarix Injection is safe and effective. But it is important to discuss with your healthcare provider to understand its potential benefits and risks and address any concerns you may have. Patients should take care of infusion reactions if they have any and tell their doctor immediately. Individuals with weakened immune systems, such as those with HIV or on immunosuppressive medications, may have a reduced response to the vaccine. However, you should contact your healthcare provider if you experience any concerning symptoms after receiving the vaccine, such as severe headache or abdominal pain.


Q 1. Can Cervarix Injection cause infertility?

There is no evidence to suggest that Cervarix Injection causes infertility. The vaccine has been extensively studied and is considered safe for both males and females.

Q 2. Is Cervarix Injection only for young people?

Cervarix Injection is recommended for males and females between the ages of 9 and 26. However, the vaccine may benefit those outside this age range who have not yet been exposed to the HPV virus.

Q 3. Can Cervarix Injection prevent all types of cervical cancer?

Cervarix Injection protects against the types of HPV most commonly associated with cervical cancer. Still, it does not protect against all types of HPV or other risk factors for cervical cancer, such as smoking and a weakened immune system.

Q 4. Can I take the Cervarix Injection if I have tuberculosis?

Yes, in general, individuals with tuberculosis can receive Cervarix Injections. However, if you have an active tuberculosis infection, you should wait until your treatment is completed and your symptoms have resolved before receiving the vaccine. This is because having an active infection can affect your immune system and may reduce the vaccine's effectiveness.

Q 5. How will the Cervarix Injection impact on heart?

No evidence suggests that Cervarix Injection negatively affects the heart or cardiovascular system.
