Can a vaccine really turn you into some sort of slut? According to the latest research on HPV vaccines, the answer is a resounding NO.

The study followed about 300 girls who were between ages 13 and 21 when they received the first of the three-shot HPV vaccine. Six month later, they found zero proof that getting vaccinated against HPV encourages girls and young women to have unsafe sex.  Such findings match with similar study released back in December 2013, which had detected no differences in sexual attitudes or behavior among teen girls who had received the shot and those who did not.

The problem with such myths is that it can influence a woman's decision to get vaccinated in the first place. Many of the women never received the second or third shots required for the vaccine that can help protect against the strains of HPV that cause 70 percent of all cervical cancer cases. The study authors suspect this might be linked with parents discouraging their daughters from getting the vaccine because they wrongly think it will boost risky behavior. And that's just crazy.
