DALLAS, TX (CBSDFW.COM) - Rick Perry may be governor of Texas, but he's 'Doctor Perry' to thousands of angry women on Facebook, facetiously seeking 'advice' on women's health issues.

Questions are about everything menstruation to menopause and anything in between.

Cait Webb wrote, "Dear Governor Perry: My period is three days late. I was a sinner and got my tubes tied over a year ago. Should I be concerned? Or should I just wear white and hope for the best?"

The questions are interspersed among comments on the Perry for President page.

The questions overwhelmed the Give Rick a Chance page.

Though the Give Rick a Chance page seems to have been started during the Governor's run for the presidency and in preparation for the South Carolina Primary, sarcastic health care questions and comments are still being posted.

The comments follow the Governor's role in cutting millions in federal Medicaid funding for

the Texas Women's Health Program so the money won't go to Planned Parenthood Clinics.

Planned Parenthood fundsabortions, but federal dollars never went to clinics that performed them.

Women were upset that hundreds of thousands of low-income Texas women will be left without access to women's healthcare.

Responding to the Facebook campaign, Kelly Hart with Planned Parenthood of North Texas said, "It will be hard to revitalize this successful program, but women's health supporters are sending a clear message that they are going to try."

"They're just trying to alert the public about their concerns, and Facebook is an excellent way to do that," said SMU student Olivia Book.

As for the facetious nature of the posts, Book said, "You're going to get so many 'likes' if your comment is more facetious and entertaining. If you post something and people think it's funny or people like it, then it's going to show up on a news feed and it will merit more attention," she added.

So it appears with Facebook, sarcasm will get you everywhere.

Governor Perry was not without his supporters. But they appear far outnumbered by detractors in this latest campaign.

Calls to the governor's office for comment have not yet been returned.

Well, this IS the guy who used executive power to require ALL pre-teen girls get Gardasil (a company he's received campaign funds from, though he claimed it was because one nameless woman who had cancer begged him to "protect" girls).

      Just had my anatomy scan today. Would it be awful if we revealed the sex of number 2 At silly girl's first birthday party? We have the envelope, I just don't know If we want to open it before or during her party or give it to my sister in law to bake the color into her cake? I don't want to feel like I'm taking attention off of her

      Guess I should update again? Frieda (Kiki, we renamed her) is here since the end of February 2021. She came with a bunch of problems, but is the best dog ever and is doing better every day. But we do now know how a dog with ptsd looks like. For real, not joking. If she is triggered during the day, she wakes up screaming at night. Not like dogs dream, but literally screaming. Other than that she went with us on countless trips, loves hiking and even cable cars. She is one heck of a fearless dog in situations who do not remind her of her old life. 
      My Grandpa passed away last May and I'm still grieving a lot. After sharing a house with my grandparents for over 30 years it is just horrible to lose one of them. Even though it was his decision and he got to go like he wanted. At home, in his bed during the night without doctors. He would have need more care and he did not want more care. So after turning 90 he decided to let go and became weaker and weaker. 
      In other news my dad stops working for good on April 1st. Retirement time. Keep my Mum and myself in your prayers. We really do not want him at home all the time. Haha!

      I don't always make good decisions for myself due to severe depression but I did today actively decide not to do something that might have been detrimental for me and am very proud of myself.

      Well, this is weird. At some point, recently, I broke my wrist. I had to get a Dexa-scan today (put it off for years) and along with some bone loss, damn I had it a few minutes ago… the results said, “Fracture risk is moderate, and the patient has a significant wrist fracture. Treatment is advised.”  my left wrist aches a little but not near as much as my back, feet, knees or fingers, damn RA. I have no idea how it happened. I haven’t fallen in 2 years, haven’t banged or bumped…  the dr will call tomorrow and we’ll get  this straightened out.
