Sex with someone new has always made me nervous. Now, TV is making it even worse.
I keep seeing scary ads featuring young people asking their parents why they didn't get the vaccine to protect against the human papillomavirus — HPV. If you're unfamiliar with HPV, it's a sexually transmitted infection that has been linked to various cancers, including cervical cancer in women.
I didn't get vaccinated. So lately I've been wondering: Now that I'm 29, is it too late for me to get the vaccine?
