    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,

    I have the C677T Mutation and have been told its unsafe for me to take estrogen as it increases the risk of blood clots. Are bioidentical hormones safe? How about testosterone? I'm trying to relieve menopause symptoms (hot flashes, low libido, etc).

    Hi:


    "Are bioidentical hormones safe? How about testosterone?"

    Matters of safety can not be properly addressed via the Internet (which has serious limitations/restrictions). Please consult with your doctor(s).

    Best of luck down the road of life.

    Take care,
