    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,

    My boyfriend of the past 5 years just found out that he is Hepatitis C positive. He has been, unfortunately, an alcoholic for many, many years. He has no idea about how he could have caught it. We are both pretty non-informed about what it is. I've been doing some research on the internet and have become really freaked out that I may have it. How possible is it to transmit? I heard that through sex or through blood is the way. Well, we've had unprotected sex....that's it. I put a call into my doctor asking if I should get tested. She hasn't returned my call yet and I am completely a nervous wreck. I recently had weight loss surgery and am trying to better my life. A hep C diagnosis would just not make my day!
