Abstract

Objective: This systematic review was conducted to examine if the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination affects fertility rates among men and women.

Methods: Articles were screened on the PubMed database for relationship between the human papillomavirus and fertility rates.

Results: The human papillomavirus vaccination has no negative effects on fertility rates of men and women. This claim is supported by six out of the eight articles.

Conclusion: This study has shown that the HPV vaccination can provide a protective barrier for reproductive organs against the effects of HPV. Further research should examine the effects of the HPV vaccination on fertility in women or men with previous sexually transmitted infections.
