This was tackled in an extensive study published in JAMA (175; 617-623,2015), which concluded that “human papilloma virus vaccination was not associated with increases in sexually transmitted infections in a large cohort of females, suggesting that vaccination is unlikely to promote unsafe sexual activity”.
