Hello mam you have high risk of cancer of genital region definitely but gardasil won't work for you now. All you need is regular follow up with pap smear testing every year till 5 years at least. Which if negative then every 3 years testing is required. Maintain local hygiene and use condom every time not to prevent pregnancy but to prevent contact with sexually transmitted diseases. Take care.
