Immunity among teenagers (15 years and below) vaccinated with HPV is very high even after five and a half years. Free HPV vaccination programme carried out by the government for teenage students was an initiative to prevent cervical cancer. HPV is a common virus that is passed on through genital contact, most often during sex and most sexually active people will get HPV at some time in their lives, though most will never even know it and is most common among people in their late teens and early 20s. Malaysian women were at a high risk of HPV which can led to cervical cancer due to their smoking habits, diet and family history.
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) 80 percent of women who have reached 50 years would have been affected by HPV and almost 20 percent of them would have reached a chronic stage, resulting in cervical cancer. The government would be spending RM150 million to vaccinate about 300,000 teenagers throughout the country.

secreted by - anterior pituitary gland
stimulates the development in the ovary
secreted by - anterior pituitary gland
stimulates ovulation, the development of corpus luteum
promotes the secretion of progesterone
secreted by - follicle cells of the ovary
stimulates further growth of the follicles
promotes the repair of endometrium from 12th day of the menstrual cycle, it has positive feedback action on the secretion of FSH and LH
secreted by - corpus luteum
stimulates the endometrium to become thick, folded & highly vascular (enriched with blood vessels) for the implantation of an embryo
inhibits the secretion of FSH & LH to prevent the development of Graafian follicles & ovulation
