    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.

    Hello -

    Well, this sounds very interesting but I can't find any medical research or studies about it.
    This link lists the side effects for Monistat, it doesn't include hair growth.

    After talking with your doctor and you decide to try this please check back in to let us know your experience.

    Take Care,
    Elizabeth
