    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!

    Hello,

    Here is some more information on hep B and hep D that could help you and your daughter. If your daughter has ever had sex with her boyfriend without using a condom or shared personal items like razors or toothbrushes, she could have hep B. The good news is that in most cases hep B goes away on its own. The link above has more information you should read through. The only way that your daughter could have hep D is if she is already infected with hep B. You should make an appointment to have your daughter tested (a simple blood test can tell if she has or has had hep and your doctor can also tell you if she has been previously vaccinated against the virus.

    Best wishes,
    Atti
