    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Hi Anon,

    I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I hope you are finding support through this tough time. I would encourage you to participate on our Grief and Loss Community also. The community will be able to point to to additional resources for help.

    There have been no clinical studies that show HCG to cause cancer. While your family members all may have taken HCG, there are many factors that come into play. Cancer is a hereditary disease and we don't know how much was taken, for how long, etc.

    If HCG injections cause cancer, I'm sure we will hear about it from the FDA as soon as it is discovered.

    I wish you well and hope you are able to find peace after your loss.
