Gardisil is for HPV and certain strains of HPV can lead to cervical cancer and other types of cancer in both men and women. There was a huge push for it a few years ago in my age group (about high school aged) because it is only given to those from 13-26 years old (it also only came out in 2006). Also, it was originally only given to girls but they have since been recommending it for use in males as well. Seeing as most fibro patients are older (aka pre-Gardacil) I doubt there is any connection. I have had fibro for several years but only got the vaccine maybe 2 years ago. Here's what the CDC has to say about it: http://www.cdc.gov/vaccinesafety/vaccines/hpv-v...
