American College of Pediatricians Sounds Alarm About HPV Vaccine (Gardasil)

by Sarah VaccinationComments: 42

hpv vaccine Gardasil and premature menopause

The American College of Pediatricians has taken the extreme and possibly unprecedented step of releasing a disturbing statement (January 2016) outlining its legitimate concerns about the safety of the HPV vaccines Gardasil and Cervarix.

The purpose of the statement is so that “individuals considering the use of human papillomavirus vaccines could be made aware of these concerns pending further action by the regulatory agencies and manufacturers.”

The concern?

The connection between HPV vaccines Gardasil and Cervarix and premature ovarian failure (POF) in adolescent girls within weeks to several years of receiving these shots.

To its credit the American College of Pediatricians (ACPEDS) wants parents and physicians to know of of its concerns and is apparently not confident vaccine manufacturers or the FDA will do so adequately. The ACPEDS has identified these concerns as legitimate and ones that should be addressed immediately. Scott S. Field MD writing on behalf of the organization outlined the situation as follows (1):

(1) long-term ovarian function was not assessed in either the original rat safety studies or in the human HPV vaccine trials.

(2) most primary care physicians are probably unaware of a possible association between HPV4 and premature ovarian failure and may not consider reporting POF cases or prolonged amenorrhea (missing menstrual periods) to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).

(3) potential mechanisms of action have been postulated based on autoimmune associations with the aluminum adjuvant used and previously documented ovarian toxicity in rats from another component, polysorbate 80.

(4) since licensure of Gardasil® in 2006, there have been about 213 VAERS reports (per the publicly available CDC WONDER VAERS database) involving amenorrhea, POF or premature menopause, 88% of which have been associated with Gardasil®. The two-strain HPV2, CervarixTM, was licensed late in 2009 and accounts for 4.7 % of VAERS amenorrhea reports since 2006, and 8.5% of those reports from February 2010 through May 2015. This compares to the pre-HPV vaccine period from 1990 to 2006 during which no cases of POF or premature menopause and 32 cases of amenorrhea were reported to VAERS.

Premature Ovarian Failure in Young Girls from Gardasil

Dr. Field writes that the cases of POF point alarmingly to Gardasil because the “overwhelming majority (76%) of VAERS reports since 2006 with ovarian failure, premature menopause, and/or amenorrhea are associated solely with Gardasil”.

Additionally, Dr. Field writes that “when VAERS reports since 2006 are restricted to cases in which amenorrhea (period stops) occurred for at least 4 months and is not associated with other known causes like polycystic ovary syndrome or pregnancy, 86/89 cases are associated with Gardasil, 3/89 with Cervarix, and 0/89 with other vaccines administered independently of an HPV vaccine”.

Is Polysorbate 80 the Toxic HPV Vaccine Ingredient Causing Premature Menopause in Girls?

You may want to sit down for this one. The ridiculously inadequate “safety trials” of Gardasil prior to its release actually used a placebo that contained the toxic ingredients polysorbate 80 as well as an aluminum based adjuvant.

Hence, these “safety studies” that were anything but never would have uncovered the alarming problem of POF prior to approval by the FDA to unleash this poison on our young girls.

Dr. Field writes about this jaw dropping oversight (or fraud?) by the vaccine manufacturers as follows:

Few other vaccines besides Gardasil® that are administered in adolescence contain polysorbate 80. Pre-licensure safety trials for Gardasil® used placebo that contained polysorbate 80 as well as aluminum adjuvant. Therefore, if such ingredients could cause ovarian dysfunction, an increase in amenorrhea probably would not have been detected in the placebo controlled trials. Furthermore, a large number of girls in the original trials were taking hormonal contraceptives which can mask ovarian dysfunction including amenorrhea and ovarian failure. Thus a causal relationship between human papillomavirus vaccines (if not Gardasil® specifically) and ovarian dysfunction cannot be ruled out at this time.

How could any self respecting scientist testing these vaccines knowingly use a placebo that actually contained some of the ingredients in the vaccine itself that was the subject of the clinical trial?  The placebo used should have been a simple saline placebo!

This is not science folks, this is science for sale. Worse, it is happening all the time.

Protect Your Daughters from the HPV Vaccines!

Due to the clear and obvious problems that not a single safety trial specifically addressed premature menopause and ovarian failure, the lack of use of saline placebos, and the majority of study participants in “safety trials” taking hormonal contraceptives which would have masked any problems indicates that there is no meaningful data to rule out a negative long term and permanent effect on ovarian function in women injected with Gardasil and Cervarix.

While a Vaccine Safety Datalink study to specifically research HPV vaccines and POF is planned, it will likely be many years before results will be determined. In addition, Dr. Field writes “Plus, POF within a few years of vaccination could be the tip of the iceberg since ovarian dysfunction manifested by months of amenorrhea may later progress to POF”.

To his credit, Dr. Field has contacted the maker of Gardasil, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to make known the concerns of the American College of Pediatricians and request that:

  •  More rat studies be done to look at long-term ovarian function after HPV4 injections.
  •  The 89 VAERS reports identified with at least 4 months amenorrhea be reviewed by the CDC for further clarification since the publicly available WONDER VAERS database only contains initial reports.
  • Primary care providers be notified of a possible association between HPV and amenorrhea.

Predictably, the FDA has so far responded only with spin saying that they “will continue to conduct studies and monitor the safety of HPV vaccines. Should the weight of the evidence from VAERS or VSD and other sources indicate a likely causal association between POF and HPV vaccines, appropriate action will be taken in terms of communication and public health response.”


If you want grandchildren, skip HPV vaccination with Gardasil or Cervarix for your daughter!

    My daughter had the vaccine at 14 through the school. Now at nearly 17 she has missed several periods and I bet this is why.

    My daughters have had this shot they are now 18 and 21. They both have severe abdominal pain during periods and stomach issues constantly. Could it be because of this shot? Tests have found nothing but I can tell you I have witnessed them throwing up, diarrhea and all and docs find nothing. What should I do?

      Yes, it most definitely could be because of the shot! Hard to tell .. but if the problems started right after the shot good chance it was at least a contributing factor.

        It also could not be because of the vaccine… as a Gastro-Intestinal RN, I would of course suggest getting your daughters to see their GP, but to also realize this could be caused by any number of problems related to the GI system and not the vaccine at all….

    My pediatrician tried to browbeat me to have my younger three sons immunized with Gardasil. He said he was having his kids immunized with it and where was my research on it. Fortunately, I denied it and said that was his choice but this was my choice. So glad that I did not cave under his demeaning tone. This is so scary and most parents are totally unaware of the dangers. Thanks for a great article.

    Two young girls in our family (unrelated to each other), my step-grand daughter and my cousins daughter (12 and 16 yrs respectively) received the HPV vaccination 2 years apart. The 12 year old developed and ovarian cyst within 2 weeks of the vaccination and lost one ovary. The 16 year old developed an ovarian cyst that ruptured and will be off school for the forseeable future with chronic fatigue-like symptoms.

    Thank you Sarah!! Shocking as always when it comes to vaccine safety. I first learnt about the concerns Round Gardisal when I watched The Greater Good and was shocked to see how the safety studies had been fast tracked. I am posting my first piece on vaccines next week – expecting a few negative comments but all good – this is a dialogue that needs to be had. Thank you again for a wonderfully thorough post.

      Why is ANYONE “shocked” when it comes to government entities and agencies unethically mandating vaccines of any nature? Can they make ethical decisions on behalf of the population if they are personally conducting unethical lives?

      Please people – STOP!!! Being so naive! Goals of Bill Gates and other vaccine promoters are clearly to cause infertility as well as to dumb down the people. Those at “the top” & in Vax mfg don’t vaccinate their own families

    Hi Sarah,

    Just so you know, the ad banner within the article is for the CDC and talks about how everyone can get a flu vaccine! I know you have troubles sometimes with your ad filters, so I wanted to let you know.

    Keep up the great work! I love your emails!

      Thanks T. Yes, the ad filters are imperfect unfortunately. Worse, some organizations and companies purposely miscategorize their ads to slip through filters to appear on sites like this one. Not surprised the CDC is guilty of this as that ad would not appear on my blog otherwise.

    Huh….so the whole “population control” agenda isn’t really so far fetched now is it?!

    I have 4 daughters: 18,14,9, and 5. None of my girls will ever get this vax. I even called our Pediatrician at her house prior to our oldest daughters 12 yr. check up and said don’t you dare even bring this vax up at our visit, it is my job as Mother to instill the virtues of modesty and chastity in my daughters and to help them choose futures spouses who have been raised similarly.

      You know, I used to think the population control thing was so ridiculous … and very much a conspiracy theory. As time rolls on, however, I continue to wonder if there might be some truth to it after all? Time will tell. In the meantime, PROTECT YOUR CHILDREN from exploitation and victimization by the drug companies.

        Thank you. I think many parents are/were in the same boat. I woke up to the lies about vaccines years ago and had fight with countless people about the dangers of vaccines. I tried to steer clear of conspiracy theories and instead focused on the dangers of vaccines. Its absurd that so many people blindly believe in “one size fits all” forced medication.

    How about, “DEMAND THAT POTENTIALLY HARMFUL ADDITIVES BE REMOVED FROM VACCINE INGREDIENTS,” NOT just “skip a vaccine” that could otherwise be greatly beneficial? Your jump to avoidance instead of demanding better options is simplistic to the point of harmfulness.

      How is “demand a better vaccine” going to do any good at all right now for someone raising adolescent girls? Complete and total vaccine avoidance is the ONLY option until green vaccines become a reality and this isn’t going to happen anytime soon. There is much more critical mass in the form of public outrage and rising vaccine avoidance that still needs to occur and this will take years (estimates are that at the current growth rate, 1 in every 2 children (certainly 1 in every 2 boys) will be autistic by 2025 so look for middle of the next decade to be a game changer). There is a juncture that is absolutely going to be reached where parental fear of a disabled or dead child in the face of rising vaccine injuries will OUTWEIGH the vaccine propaganda and ridiculous claims/hollow assurances by gov’t and conventional doctors that “vaccines are totally safe”. At that point, EVERYONE will eventually know within their personal circle a vaccine injured child negating the blackout effect of the media not reporting about these cases and only spewing propaganda. Maybe there will be green vaccines in time for our grandchildren (let’s hope so!) but not right now for parents TODAY.

      Pie in the sky is NO HELP to a parent who needs an answer NOW. And the only answer NOW for a thinking parent who analyzes all the data with an open mind is that the risks of toxic vaccines to their child’s health (and their own health) FAR OUTWEIGH any potential benefit (if there is any benefit at all).

    Sarah, thank you so much for posting this important information. Can’t help but wonder how many top executives at Merck are letting their daughters receive Gardasil. Of course, they are very aware of Gardasil’s dismal safety record in Europe. According to a member of the French parliament in regards to Gardasil, “Today in Europe, many young women, aged 18-24 years, without medical history are affected with very debilitating diseases that could be attributed directly to vaccination,” The European Medicines Agency is conducting a safety review of Gardasil and two other HPV vaccines. Unfortunately more and more cases of conditions like POTS (postpostural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome) and chronic limb pain are occurring here in the US in young girls who have received the vaccine. Parents need to be very proactive as soon as symptoms occur. And, in my opinion, should consider supportive post-vaccine therapy even if symptoms are not present. Great post, Sarah. I appreciate your passion to help others know better. Keep it up!

    What about boys. We are on Kaiser insurance and several years ago, his pediatrician told me that it was necessary for boys to get the HPV vaccines. I have always trusted our pediatrician and my son got the shots. Is there evidence of any problems with boys?

    While I appreciate the attention of this “warning” by ACPEDS, your article sensationalizes the points of concerns like they are declaring a state of emergency. This is farthest from the truth.

    ACPEDS is still recommending the HPV vaccines for ALL children,, and in fact also links their article that your post talks about,

    Before the flaming begins, please know that I refrained from having my daughter subjected to this type of vaccine due to lack of quality clinical trials and don’t regret that decision. I just dislike sensationalistic news even if it is of the side I am on. It freaks people out and causes paranoia.

    @Tracy, don’t be hard on yourself. You were only looking out for the best interest of your children AND the adverse affects that do occur happen in a pretty small percentage of actual vaccinations given out. Thankfully it appears your girls have dodged that potential risk. If I were you I would have the girls checked out for those concerns brought up by ACPEDS and if they don’t appear to be having those affects finish the treatment. Be smart about it and do your best to not be caught in the hype by either side.

With zero permanent repercussions I might add, unlike these poor girls who will never be able to have children due to their parents making decisions about their bodies based on their doctor’s brilliant “opinion”.

    My daughter had this shot when they first came out and were being recommended by her pediatrician. Since then I have watched her immune system weaken horribly. She is now 21 and gets sick very easily, picks up UTI, and seems to have no natural defense system in place. Could this be due to this shot and how can I tell. This makes me furious that the government and pharmaceutical companies did this !! They are out of control and greedy for money at our kids expense..

    I am overly terrified that I have made a huge mistake. My DS 13 and DD 10 have both had 2 of the 3 Gardisil injections and since starting this process, I am learning so many horrible things associated with it. What have I done to my children??? Is there any way to reverse or prevent issues besides not getting the last dose? I am feeling quite guilty that I trusted my physician instead of researching this for myself.

      Don’t feel guilty Tracy. There are literally hoards of six figure income people in cubicles working for the pharmaceutical industry and their job all day every day is to figure out how to dupe you and other parents (and doctors too!) into swallowing their propaganda without giving it a second thought. Fear is the preferred tactic (because it works so incredibly well) and now intimidation and even forced vax legislation (is this really Amercia?) as more and more parents are waking up to the ruse and saying no.

      Besides skipping the last HPV dose, I would have your daughters examined by a holistic physician that specializes in detoxification protocols from immunization. A doctor like this can determine if there are any issues that need resolution.

          Your niece’s symptoms are common for girls experiencing health issues after cervical cancer vaccination. While parents in the US can basically do nothing (you can’t sue the pharma companies here and good luck getting a conventional doctor to side with you that the symptoms are from the shot to get money from National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program – they are all terrified of taking a stand b/c they might get retaliated against by the AMA for not towing the line), you CAN sue in Japan and parents are banding together to do just that.
