Uses: This medication is a vaccine used to prevent cancer of the cervix, vagina, and the area around the outside of the vagina (vulva). It is also used to prevent genital warts and abnormal tissue growth in the cervix/vagina/vulva that can lead to cancer in women. These conditions are commonly caused by certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV). Vaccines work by increasing the body's natural defense (immunity) against the virus. This medication does not protect against all types of HPV, only the types in the vaccine. It is used to prevent the diseases and will not treat active cervical/vaginal/vulvar cancer, genital warts, or other diseases caused by the types of HPV in the vaccine.
