Gardasil: My Family Suffers with Me

By  Heidi Juul Pedersen, Frederikshavn, Northern Part of Jutland, Denmark

Gardasil: We’re all in this together

My husband and I have three young children. Before Gardasil, we were a very active family and did a lot of different things with our children – we had fun.  I personally have always walked a lot, up to 15-20 km a day, as well as cycling about 20 km a day in my job as a social and health careworker.  It has been over a year since my last injection of Gardasil. I am still on sick leave trying to recover from the side effects.

It was during the last weeks of my maternity leave, my smallest son was 11 months old and we were on a winter break to Skallerup seaside resort, up here in Northern Jutland. The day before our holiday began, on the 15th February 2013, I was vaccinated with my first shot of the HPV vaccine Gardasil.

To help you understand, I had the vaccine because I thought it was the safest thing to do having small children and all.  I spoke with my doctor and he agreed.  He did not tell me there was no need for me to do this since my husband and I have been together for 13 years.

On the 15th February, the day of my first vaccine, I was a little surprised that my menstrual cycle started a bit early but at the time did not reflect on it other than it was an inconvenience compared to the fun we were going to have on the upcoming family trip.

After bleeding for 14 days, I began to wonder why. Then I found out that my spiral coil for birth control was starting to come away from my body, so I made an appointment with the doctor and had it removed completely and was put on to the birth control pill instead.  I was still bleeding a little, but thought that it had to be due to the spiral being removed.

Then my next menstruation occured in  April and again this lasted for a few weeks. But this time I felt very dizzy and felt as if I was about to faint.  I went to the doctor and was told that my blood pressure was very low, and they couldn’t find a reason for that.   At that time, nobody suspected the vaccine

Then a few days later I went to get shot No 2 and this was given to me on 18th April 2013. Within two

Just one of my 'mysterious' symptoms

Just one of my ‘mysterious’ symptoms

days of having this vaccination, the 20th April, my life changed completely. I suddenly could not do anything.   My leg became suddenly paralyzed , and I was dragging it after me, my husband needed to help me with everything because my arms, for a shorter period of time, were paralysed too . My fingers  changed shape and looked like a spastic claw and for all I tried I could not get them straightened out . This has thankfully subsided, but other things appeared over time as I have detailed below:

  • Memory loss
  • Headache
  • Pronounced fatigue
  • Numbness/pain throughout the body that comes on suddenly. It lasts from a few minutes to several days.
  • Poor concentration / memory difficulties
  • Dizziness
  • Very low blood pressure
  • High pulse rate
  • Rash
  • Weight loss, now have a BMI of 21.4, before it was 24.6
  • Internal heat/fever – one moment I freeze , the next moment I’m sweating;
  • Visual problems – the case of not being able to focus
  • Pain in my jaw, neck and back
  • Cramps in my back
  • Palpitations
  • Abdominal pains
  • Ringing in my ears for short periods – Tinnitus
  • Heavy legs – I have to  concentrate a lot to get my legs up from a lying down position
  • Not being able to speak coherently
  • Pernicious Anaemia – B12 deficiency
  • Feeling less strength in my hands and legs   
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea.


In November 2013, I was diagnosed with Postural Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS).  My resting heart rate is 100-115 and I have heart palpitations very often which press on my chest and make me feel unwell – when I am like this I cannot run and play with my children.

I still have sensory disturbances and pain that comes and goes / moves around in my body. My legs often feel very bad, so much so that I can barely walk.

I pick up my daughter after school, but cannot walk further than that and cannot pick up my two boys from kindergarten and nursery.  It is my husband who picks them up.

My head does sometimes hurt so much that I have to lie in bed all day, and it’s hard for my kids to understand.

Fortunately, my youngest boy,  can walk now , because I have no strength in my arms to lift him for any length of time.

My family suffers too

My family suffers too

I would like to share this picture with you which my daughter Rebecca drew and made some comments about her mummy.  The words are in Danish.  This is what my 7 year old daughter said about me in a school assignment a few months ago when she had just started in the 1st grade:

  • Sick
  • On the sofa
  • At home
  • Sick
  • So long


I fight all I can, and I will find out why this has happened to me and I will be well again.  I will live on in good health and hope that the future allows me to be able to participate in all family matters, including diaper changes, vacuuming, washing the floor, doing the laundry and window cleaning etc.  All normal things which I have not been able to do very much since I received this vaccination.   That is my goal and to be able to have lots of fun with my children.

This terrible experience does not just affect me, it affects all five of us at home. 

I have written to Denmark’s Prime Minister, Minister of Health and the various regions in Denmark, but without getting any useful answers. 

It is not actually answers I need but ACTION as do all my fellows sufferers of Gardasil damage who have been harmed in Denmark by this vaccine. All of us need to be diagnosed correctly and given treatments that will give us back our good health and our lives. We need this NOW –  not next year.

For those who understand the Danish language, here is a news broadcast Heidi was interviewed for in January 2014:

  1. Sincere blessings to Heidi and prayers for her complete recovery. By sharing her story and warning about the dangers of the HPV vaccine she is helping very many others.

    Thousands are suffering serious injuries from the vaccine including many deaths. More and more countries are becoming aware of the terrible consequences of the vaccine and are thinking twice about recommending it. The exciting recent international symposium will no doubt have an escalating effect on globally increased awareness of the dangers of the HPV vaccines.

    Heidi is one of many brave Danish girls who are now publicly sharing their painful experiences which have resulted from the vaccine.

    There may be many girls in Norway who are also suffering from Gardasil injuries and who are not receiving help. They may even be told that their problems are psychiatric, but when they recognize that many of their symptoms are similar to those which are suffered by the Danish girls they may realise that Gardasil is a most probable cause. It is important that the Norwegian girls do not suffer alone and that they are also encouraged to come forward for help and support.

    Gardasil was introduced into the childrens’ vaccination program in Norway amidst implication of corruption. Money changed hands on several levels. Experts who advised the government to introduce Gardasil into the childrens’ vaccination program were paid by Merck the manufacturer.

    Additionally, a contract between Merck and the Norwegian government was negotiated which involved using thousands of young Norwegian girls in a gigantic research experiment about which neither the girls nor their parents were informed:

    “The government of Norway committed to establishing an HPV vaccine registry for the entire country. Merck will use data from the HPV vaccine registry and existing birth registers in Norway to analyze pregnancy exposures and outcomes …”

    Pregnancy outcomes includes babies born with deformities.
    One may well wonder how much the Norwegian authorities have received from Merck for access to the valuable information.
    Norway is regularly chosen for research studies on the population because of the extremely well kept registries, close connections between the pharmaceutical industry and Norwegian authorities and the naive, conforming population which has minimal possibility for acknowledgement of vaccine damage or compensation.

    You have Livedo Reticularis, I have it on my back. Look into to as it took me years and years before I finally got the right answer. Good luck

    Hello, my name is Kathy and I am in the USA. I have read your story about your condition. I have left this similar post to the woman writing about her daughter. I have read many other similar stories as well, vaccinations causing devastating symptoms, even unto death. I am currently dealing with my mother in-law who is in critical condition after having the flu-influenza shot. Her kidneys are shutting down and has a severe case of pneumonia. People do not realize that the world gov. does not test any of these drugs correctly, but it may be a way to depopulate the world..?? All shots have small amounts of toxins in them, such as aluminum and mercury and more. These toxins can not expel from the body, but settle in the organs and brain. So I believe there are 2 things that can help, as they have helped many here suffering from lyme, lupus and MS and much more. Please go to: to learn more. Remember first you need to detoxify the system from all toxins, and at the same time be taking something to pick up the immune system. Both of these are explained at the website. Any questions please click on the contact in the site. Good Luck and God Bless

    I just wanted to say this hit a deep spot on me because my injury was like this too. I guess I’m lucky because I recovered quickly. But I had it when I was 12 or 13. I had had a normal period until then. And then I was bleeding for two weeks at a time every two weeks. I experienced vertigo for a year and had to lie down almost every day with school. I was always dizzy and tired. The only side effect I am still unsure about (but getting more sure every day) is after I got that shot I began experiencing mental issues too. Depression, anxiety, and the weirdest of all, I stopped being able to do math. Like I was in 3rd grade calculating volume and doing advanced geometry then BAM, no more math skills. It’s like it shut off the part of my brain wired for that stuff. The periods were the worst though because I was so embarrassed. I even went on the 6th grade camping trip thinking I’d be okay because I had just gotten off my period a week before. Well I started again and bled for the whole time I was there. I was too embarrassed to ask for pads so I just used my friends pantyliners (which did nothing) I left that whole bag of clothes because they were ruined. I always wondered what caused it, and then when I was offered the second shot I made the connection. I began looking up stories and seeing ones like this one. Thank you for sharing so people like me know they aren’t alone.
