Most men do not have symptoms from HPV. It is recommended for women as a way of decreasing cervical cancer. The important thing is that it should be given before the commencement of sexual activity.

So, if I understand correctly, you are saying that besides for the HPV strains connected with cervical cancer, most men also won' t develop warts due to the specific wart-causing HPV strains?
