honestly most of us don't continue to check in on posts that are this long. it's best if you just start your own discussion in your own post instead of continuing in a post that is 4 pages long. It's a pain to plow through all the pages to get to new posts to it.View Thread
Talking about std testing is NORMAL and something we all should be doing EVERY TIME before we have sex with a new partner :)
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
