Women's Health




A friend of mine sent me a email from a study that showed that Gardasil may cause rheumatoid arthritis. I have RA and it is severe and don`t wish this on any one. I have suffered be on belief. Becuase of my RA I also have a terminal lung problem so you you can die from complications of RA. Even if it is a one in a million chance of happening it should be taken off the market. Can you give me some more information about this?


We currently do not know of any link between RA and the HPV vaccine. There is a study underway to answer your questions.
