    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

    It's really helpful when you post under your webmd nickname instead of always choosing to post anonymously :) It's so hard for us to remember who anon3456 is and anon2389 is where as keeping straight in our head who cupcake95 is and bulldog2010 is much easier! Also when you post under anonymous, we can't click on your name to learn more about you or read your other posts. It really does help us help you more :)

    Also it's helpful to just keep adding to your original post instead of to keep making a new post each time. Keeps all your "story" in one spot and makes it easy for us to scan through it all when we reply.

    If you normally post in another forum on webmd like for instance the exercise forum and don't want folks on that forum to see that you now have std related questions, then by all means use the anonymous posting option but it seems like everyone is choosing to post anonymously and then it gets so confusing when folks are posting in the same post under anonymous and their regular nickname or even when 3 or 4 people are all posting using the anonymous option!!! this is all volunteer for all of us so anything you can do to make it easier is greatly appreciated :)

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