Lauren from Rochdale, Lancashire, UK

Story as told by Susan, Lauren’s mum

Lauren has always been the kind of girl who could never sit still for long. She went swimming every weekend with her friends. She loved any physical activities and was very strong. She had only been to the doctors twice in her life; once for tonsillitis and once with appendicitis. The appendicitis ended up with her being in hospital to have her appendix out but she recovered very quickly from this. Other than those two incidents, she was hardly ever ill, even with colds or flu.

I will now tell you what life has been like for Lauren after having one single injection of Cervarix. Lauren was only 12 when she had her first jab of Cervarix at the beginning of October in 2010. She came home that day telling me the injection didn’t hurt, this was said amongst other things that had happened at school that day but she wasn’t feeling too good. I put this down to the vaccine as they do tell you that you might get a temperature or feel a bit off.

A few days later she was complaining that her shoulder was hurting when she moved it. A couple of days after that her elbow was hurting too. She also had a rash in between the tops of her legs like nothing I had ever seen before. I thought it might be a heat rash, or perhaps from her legs rubbing together, but not related to the soreness in her joints. I took her to the doctors and he said it was most likely she had pulled a muscle and said to take ibuprofen for a week. She did this and after a week had passed I took her back to the doctors as her condition had not improved. The doctor then gave her Diclofenex and said she probably just needed another week of resting.

After that week had passed I took her to see a different doctor as her knees were now hurting and she was constantly coughing and feeling completely drained. He said he thought she had severe tonsillitis as she had a temperature as well and that this was affecting her joints. He put her on antibiotics. She just got constantly worse after this. All her joints swelled up, she was coughing, she lost around a stone in weight (14 pounds) and was covered in this rash which kept coming and going. It now reached the stage that she had to stay off school because all she was doing all day was sleeping.

Eventually, after numerous more visits to the doctors for blood tests etc, she was admitted to the children’s ward at our local hospital. At this point she was in a wheelchair because she could barely move and was in agony. There they put her on an antibiotic drip, again saying she had tonsillitis. This was over Christmas time, so they let her come home for a few hours on Christmas day to open her presents.

After the antibiotics did nothing, they just carried on giving her strong painkillers and decided to transfer her to Manchester Royal Children’s Hospital where there is a Rheumatology specialist. After about a week of being at that hospital and tests to rule out leukaemia, they diagnosed systemic onset juvenile idiopathic arthritis. They started treatment with a steroid infusion for 6 days and then oral steroids after that. They also started her on Methotrexate injections which she had to have weekly. Her condition did improve quite quickly after this new treatment started. She also had physiotherapy and we did some exercises at home with her everyday as well. After about 2 months the doctor decided to try and wean her off the steroids as she was doing a lot better and only had some pain in her knees, which they were going to inject with steroids and drain some fluid from them as well.

When they started weaning her off the steroids her symptoms started coming back. By the time she was down to 5mg of Prednisilone she was worse than ever and was readmitted back into hospital with fluid round her heart and hardly able to move, or breathe. After another 3 days on 1000mg Prednisilone drip she was feeling a lot better again. This time they decided to start another medication on top of the ones she was already on, called Anakinra which she was to have a daily injection of 100mg. They also discovered the Prednisilone was causing steroid induced hyperglycaemia. Her blood sugars were over 20, so we had to start blood sugar testing. They were going to put her on insulin but after Lauren argued that she didn’t want another injection everyday and that she would control her diet, they allowed her to try Metformin which has worked pretty well so far as long as she eats well.

At the moment Lauren has some reaction to the Anakinra injections and gets quite sore, and is getting itchy lumps on her arms but these aren’t lasting as long as they used to so we think her body might be getting used to tolerating it a bit more. The doctor is talking about putting her injections up to 2/3 a day because she does still get flare ups but at the moment she has been quite well for the past 6 weeks, she just gets very tired. If she overdoes any exercise or walking etc though she is in a lot of pain in the evening and gets a temperature and the rash.

She hasn’t been to school for almost a year so has missed a lot of school work and has also missed out on socialising with her friends.  Sadly some of her friends have called her fat when they have seen her because the steroids have made her put on quite a bit of weight so she cries about that. We’re just hoping that she continues to get better though the doctor has said she will probably be on treatment for life but they will review this when she has been in remission for 2 years.

My daughter has been training at the hospital to do her own injections every day which will save her having to go so often to the hospital to get all these jabs.  She has however had a bad flare up again just recently and the Consultant Rheumatologist decided that the Anakinra just wasn’t working so he has taken Lauren off this medication.  She is now on a fortnightly infusion of Tocilizumab and so far this seems to be working but unfortunately she is back up to 20mg of Prednisilone as well.

One good piece of news is that Lauren has now managed to get back to school for almost a month now. She has only had to take a few days off here and there when it is just too painful for her to walk. She also gets infections quite a lot as the Methotrexate is a chemotherapy treatment so it suppresses the immune system, as do the steroids and the Tocilizumab.

I should just like to say that there is no history of rheumatoid arthritis in the family at all. I would give anything in the world for my daughter to be able to get back to her life before Cervarix.


  1. Susan Terry says:

    I have just discovered the Sanevax website and the stories of the girls who received the Cervarix vacccine with such devastating out comes. Please can I suggest you look at the following website which is a protocol developed by a Dutch Doctor and Homeopath, Tinus Smits. There are an increasing number of Registered Cease Therapists in the UK, trained in this method. I hope it helps.

  2. Thank you Susan for telling your daughter’s harrowing story of vaccine injury. It is a crying shame that this is being allowed to happen to such wonderful beautiful young girls. Anyone who stands by and lets this happen and knows of the adverse effects of Ceravix is downright evil.


    From its inception until the appearance of tha uterine carcinoma of the cervix (UCC) take in average 25 to 30 years; the investigation on the vaccine against the human papilloma virus has begun the 2000; the scientific efficacy of this vaccine has just determined in the years 2025-2030
    HPV not causes definitely the (UCC); in the onset of this disease are involve multiple risk factors, including suspected HPV, but there are security for epidemiology and statistics that sex generates the disease. Mix in 130.000 nuns not found not any UCC.
    To accept that a virus or bacteria cause a disease must indefectible fulfill the 5 Koch postulates:
    1. The agent must be present in each case of the disease and absent in healthy subjects.
    2. The agent should not appear in other diseses,
    3. The agent must be isolated in pure culture from the lesions of the diseases,
    4. The agent has to cause the disease in an animal capable of being incoculated,
    5. The agent must be newly in the lesions of animal in experimentation
    Consequently HPV do not fulfill not any of Koch’s postulate; fulfill this postulate is accepted as dogma in medicine, scientifically we can sure that the HPV is not the
    causative agent of the UCC
    Until June 2012 solely in USA was 263, 328 advers efffects, disabling irreversible 8,860, death 1160, abnormal PAP 4900, dysplasia cervical 1950, cervical cancer 560.!/mail/InboxLight.aspx?n=1668544653!n=1997022391&fid=e71773d143454209a436ace1ced14dca&mid=3cd42a8d-d11d-11e1-af47-00237de3f55e&fv=1 .
    To accord of Vaccine advers effects reaction (VAERS) information that is denounced
    solely between 1% to 10%
    Dr. Harper, who helped develop the vaccine for Merck reports that the vaccine was not investigated in children under 15 years and the vaccine given to children under 11 years is a big public experiment.
    The vaccine was approved to give girls not contaminated with HPV; Dr.Howenstinc say if women are vaccinated contaminated with HPV are able to acquire a 44.6% CCU / Howenstine/james170.htm.
    This vaccine is transgenic; the Sane vax has discover that Gardasil is contaminated with DNA recombinant (DNArPVH) and has raised its concern to the president of the FDA Margaret Hamburg; the FDA replied that its presence does not cause any harm.
    A vaccinated girl became ill with rheumatoid arthritis, which is an autoimmune disease. 24 hours after vaccination and found that the DNArPVH adhered to aluminum, two years after vaccination.
    To introduce the vaccine are using the marketing of fear: http://mujeresenaccion.over-
    HPV is ubiquitous and lives in wild and domestic animals, we pollute from birth, is on the doorknobs, on towels, on the nails, on fomites, in gloves and specula of gynecologists; sexual intercourse is not the solely means of contamination.
    HPV also lives in the 400 nm outermost of our skin and mucous membranes. ,
    If live on our skin, our immune system produces cellular and humoral immunity; our body is naturally being vaccinated for HPV to live on our skin and mucous ..
    The cervical carcinoma, neither the HPV are infections, contagious, epidemical, nor infectd only by the coitus
    Gardasil is genetically modified;; known vaccines are made from killed or attenuated original bacterial or virus; it is UNKNOWN damage that produce in the future and is prepared to prevent infection only of HPVs 16 and 18; it is know that exist 200 species of HPV.
    The HPVs are not distributed uniformly over the world. It was found that in Canada the HPV 18 solely less than 3%, more prevalent is HPV 31, in my country Peru there are no studies that established the predominant types of HPV, gardasiul contains 225 mcg and cervarix 500 mcg aluminum that produce Alzheimer’s, it is a mayor neurotoxine, disrupter of neurological funtion and immunoexcitotoxicity and polisorbato 80 which is a potent contraceptive that in the experimental animals produces sterility, atrophy of the testicles and funtional and morphological disturbance of the reproductive organs; are carcinogenic and mutagenic; also contains sodium borate considered poison, not used in medicinal preparations.
    Until now it is know 200 types og PVHs
    December 2012 FDA approved the gradasil to boys since 9 to 26 years to prevent the anal cancer and wart. It is a excess.
    For the reasons from Peru, depth, Huancayo, I believe that this vaccine is a Fraud?, Robbery?, Swindle?, Rough Joke?; it is not scientifically proven at this time, its effectiveness will be verified just the years of 2025-2030.

  4. My mum told me to look this website up and so i did. When i got the 3 vaccinations in school, i felt crap after each one. Shortly after i had my 3rd and final jab, i was taken ill with a very high temperature and when called the doctors, was told to stay at home and a doctor would come out to me (this was when ‘swine flu’ was about) They phoned back shortly after saying that i could come down to the surgery but i was to state that i needed to be kept separate when i got there. I was looked over and told that i infact, didn’t have swine flu and it was just a scare. They didn’t know what was wrong with me and so took some blood tests. I was put on antibiotics to try and get rid of any problems. I was probably on these tablets for a year maybe? Phoned up for my blood results and they’d been done wrong so had to go back for more. (i had never had a blood test before this so almost fainted each time) I felt rubbish! Blood tests came back normal for everything. By this point i’d started to have problems with my throat. Swelling up, hurting, the works. They took a swab and that came back clear too. Nothing was wrong with me according to the doctors but i still felt crap. Ever since then, i’ve had back pains and joint pains that i should not have at 20 years old. No matter what, i get a sore back. I’ve been going to the gym and stretching out and everything but no matter what. My back stiffens and cracks. I’ve always thought it was me sitting at desks and computers because of what i do (part of it maybe is) but now seeing this it’s becoming clear. When i write my wrist gets tired very quickly and i’ve become very impatient with it. I’ve had recurring problems with my throat and i seem to pick up a bug the quickest out of anyone i know even with me sanitising my hands and doing everything possible to stay healthy. The only good thing i got out of this was managing to pass the acne stage as the antibiotics were also used for treating acne.

    Reading everyone elses’ stories has concerned me but i am glad i was told about this website. I’m fed up of being sore!!!
