Will the HPV vaccine worsen arrhythmia ?

According to an article easily found on google ("Everything You Need to Know About The NVICP Ruling that HPV Vaccine Causes Arrhythmia and Killed Christina Tarsell")

The HPV vaccine apparently killed Christina Tarsell.

As a lifelong sufferer of PVC's, I am glad I am in a period in my life where I rarely suffer from them anymore.
I would like to get the HPV vaccine because I don't want HPV related cancers or genital warts,
which a lot of single people unfortunately silently carry with them due to their often promiscuous sexual encounters in the past.

Is there a lot of evidence for these type of vaccine's to worsen arrhythmia (very frequent but benign PVC's in my case),
or should I not worry about this?

First -

Some info on HPV. Many doctors consider HPV an inevitability if you have had more than 3 partners in your lifetime. Something like 90% will get it in their lifetime. https://www.cdc.gov/hpv/parents/questions-answers.html#common

The vast majority of people will clear the virus from their bodies with no issue. Obviously, some don't and some will get cancers from this virus, and there is no way to know if you are one of them.

Most people don't define 3 partners as "promiscuous", and we try to avoid labeling people's sexual activity with any kind of judgemental terms. In any case, STDs don't care how many partners you've had - they just do their biological thing and reproduce and transmit from one person to another, just like colds, flus and strep. The only difference is how they are transmitted.

As to the vaccine, the young woman in your article had an autoimmune response to the vaccine. Only your doctor can determine if you are at risk for this, or if you have any risk factors. He/she can help you decide if the benefit outweighs any risk you may have, given your age, sexual risk, etc. Keep in mind that she is one of millions who have had the vaccine, most without any long-term effects. All medications and vaccines carry risk. Aspirin carries risk. Talk to your doctor about your medical history, sexual history and see what you think.

I am already hypersensitive to most medicationz and even supplements causing increased pvcs

i also suffer from *** and a mild to moderate form of CFS.

in my case it seems wiser not to take the chance.
i agree with you, many strong people are alright with unlimited nr of vaccines

but some ppl like me are better off going easy on the vaccines,
and gardasil 9 which immunizes against 9 strains simultaneously is pretty hard on the immune system.

thanks for your advice which kinda strengthens the belief i have in the theory just mentioned.

some websites like vaxxed offer many cases where people suffer from big range of complications after vaccines.

the complications are less common than most people would think.

that aside, if i had a less sensitive body,. mind and brain i. might opt. for the vaccine myself.

have a nice  day,

*** means autism spectrum disorder :)
I'm not saying that people don't experience complications from vaccines, but keep in mind that those that don't aren't posting about it on the internet. They just go about their lives, so you don't hear about it. No one collects those stats.

That said, it's entirely up to you if you get this vaccine. If you are an adult, and have already had multiple sex partners, it may not make any sense to get it. If you have a fear of vaccines, or it gives you anxiety, there's really no reason to get it. Condoms can help reduce the risk of HPV a great deal.

I hope this helped. :)
