yes it is ok to use it but it does get awfully confusing when everyone is anonymous and when someone replies as anonymous in one reply and then by their user name in another. makes it very hard to follow and keep track of who's who.View Thread
herpes will not cause discharge all the time for 2 months. continue to follow up with your gyn as needed to get to the bottom of things. sometimes even it's an overgrowth of normal lactobacillus causing it.View Thread
you can contact webmd about changing your name/deleting your prior account and making a new one.
like I said, we understand that some folks do need the anonymous option but it's definitely being overused and makes it really, really confusing on the boards. You can call yourself cupcake2010 and it's doubtful any friends or family are gonna realize it's you posting Ok so my friends and family might suspect me if I used that but....he he heView Thread
you can't delete them yourself. just go to the post, mark it as 'report this" and I'm pretty sure you can type a reason why. you can also post to caprice here with a link to the post you made you want deleted too.View Thread
it gets really confusing when everyone's nickname starts out with "anon". Unless you are a regular on another exchange here on webmd where it would be plain ole embarrassing to have someone click on your nickname and see you were asking questions about std's, it's really helpful if you chose a nickname and use it. Much easier for us to remember what "yellowdog" and "luvdonuts" posts were about in our mind than to remember what "anon_2387" asked about.
