The vaccine will not cure or heal an actual infection, it only helps to prevent future ones. I am not a fan of the HPV vaccine as there are many many incidences of adverse reactions. I will not even allow my daughter to get it.


I tested positive, they gave me the vaccines (that's it) and 6 months later when they tested me again I was negative. Possibly a false positive? Or my body took care of it by itself?.


Yes, your body would have cleared the infection on its own. It usually does, which is why the providers just retest in 3 to 6 months. Recommending the vaccine for you was likely a preventative measure on the part of your docs office, since you are a sexually active women and already had an exposure.
