    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!

    Yours in health,

    Tuesday Tidbits: Ladies Fun Poll
    Olivia_WebMD_Staff posted:
    Ladies, we haven't done this is a while as this is sometimes a more serious community, but let's give it a shot.

    1) What's your favorite thing about being a woman?

    2) What's your biggest pet peeve about being a woman?

    Let's try and set a record with this one and get this community moving and groovin'! If you have girlsfriends on other boards, invite them over to join in.

    1) Love being hardwired to nurture. The difference between the way my husband and I interact with our kids is so interesting. He's very matter of fact, and I am empathetic.

    2) Right now? Perimenopause. Nightmare periods. ARGH

    tlkittycat1968 responded:
    1. I love almost everything about being a woman. If I had to pick one thing it would be having an excuse to have a lot of clothes.

    2. Hands-down having a period. It curtails our sex life and occasionally limits my activities.
    rhondamay responded:
    1) Being a wife, mother and grandmother.

    2) Menopause

    Caprice_WebMD_Staff responded:
    What a fun discussion!

    1. I love just about everything about being a woman and always did. Since we're here on WebMD, I'll share one to do with health... I think we're lucky because our bodies will let us know very quickly if there's something out of synch that needs our attention.

    2. I have to admit, perimenopause leaves a lot to be desired.

    Caprice, long time no see. I've been on WebMD for a number of years and remember you as one of the moderators. Hope things have been going well for you.

    1) As a women, I was able to wed Mr. Wonderful. I was able to bare his childern. I was able to keep his house. I was able to share in his life and have him make me complete.

    2) As a women I was forced by body and social pressures to comform to a demeaning, small life of kids and home. I was unable to grow, to prosper mentaly and become all that I was capable of becoming.
    Iamold responded:
    1) Favorite? Wedding Mr. Wonderful. Bearing his childern. Making his house his home. Allowing him to make me and my life complete.
    2) Peeve? Being content with a small life. Being unable to grow and prosper mentaly to become the person I was think I was able to be.
