    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.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Dear Anon_22979,

    Trichomonas doesn't care what gender you are. It's spread by sexual contact and according to the article, "Trichomoniasis is the most common curable STD in young, sexually active women. An estimated 7.4 million new cases occur each year in women and men."

    Any sex partners you've had should see their doctors for treatment, too. Otherwise, it can be passed back and forth. Please discuss it with your doctor or a health clinic for more information and specific answers.

    Yours in health,

    Byroney
