Can i still get a Gardasil 9 HPV vaccine if I've already tested positive for HPV 52? Would it still be effective?

Yes, you still can get the Gardasil 9 HPV vaccine. This is because the G9 vaccine would cover for 8 other HPV strains that can cause cervical, vulvar, vaginal, anal, oropharyngeal, other head and neck cancers and genital warts. This is provided that you have not been exposed to these 8 strains. However, it will not protect you against HPV type 52, as you have already been exposed to it. The vaccine is best done before exposure to the HPV type. HPV type 16 and 18 still account for about 70% of cervical cancers, and type 6 and 11 cause about 90% of genital warts.
