Effectiveness of the HPV vaccine

Hi, I've been lurking for a while, but this is the first thing that has happened to me that's been worthy of posting.

Recently, one of my boyfriend's exes (who hasn't been with anyone since him) tested positive for HPV. I am pretty sure that, since he and I do not use condoms, I have ended up with it as well. I'm going to get tested next Monday.

However, this has made me curious about something. Before ever having sex with him, I got the first two shots of the Gardasil vaccine. But I still haven't gotten the last one. Will this affect my chances of getting HPV at all, even if I haven't yet finished the vaccine? Is it partially effective, or not at all?

Like I said, I'm getting tested on Monday, so I guess I will know by then. It's just made me wonder about the nature of the vaccine.
