Hi,
The HPV Vaccine is available from 13 years old till 45 years but the immunity is better when taken earlier.

The vaccine is taken in 3 doses within a year.

Currently there is no package for the 3 doses.

Varicose veins pelvic congestion
Hi Doctor and team, My wife is experiencing varicose veins that extend from her leg to her thigh, as well as reaching her pelvic area. We suspect that the veins in the pelvic area might be causing pelvic congestion, leading to back and belly pain. Just wondering, is it a day or overnight if we want to get rid of the varicose vein? and how much it will cost, we are overseas (INA), Once we have this information, we will proceed with organizing everything and contact for an appointment.
