    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,

    The blood clots only pertain to people with a history of them. If you've never had a blood clot, you can use it.


    Evista is a good drug. It's a synthetic hormone that has no effect on breast tissue. It helps build bone strength.


    The only negative I've heard of is possible hot flashes, especiall for women who've stopped ERT and are now taking Evista.
