    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,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    I keep getting messages frequently when I post saying that the forum is temporarily unavailable. this has been happening for several months now actually. sometimes my reply has still posted and sometimes it hasn't. This seems to occur whether I"m on my home computer where I use 1 browser or if I"m at work where we use another browser.

    any suggestions?
    Talking about std testing is NORMAL and something we all should be doing EVERY TIME before we have sex with a new partner :)

    This is very frustating, especially since there appears to be no pattern for this. One post will go through, the next written several minutes afterwards won't, then a third will. Thus, one has no idea what will occur with each posting.

    I know and I'm sorry. It's happening to me also, sometimes just before I hit submit I actually remember to copy my post so I can paste it back up there if it doesn't stick, but that's not ideal at all.

    I'm reporting this for sure today and I'm so sorry about the inconvenience. They are working on it from what I understand, but please keep reporting it and I will too.
