BananaLvr912 added a topic in Celiac Disease - PregnancyMissing Menstrual PeriodI am new to the gluten-free world as I just got diagnosed this month. My major issue which drove me to get tested (besides all the stomach issues) was missed menstrual periods. I have gotten my period twice since January 2006. My most recent period was September 2007. After a lot of tests, my gyno said that this was "normal" for someone on birth control for a long period of time. I never felt at ease with this b/c it's just not normal to lose your period for that long. With my diagnosis, I'm finally at ease because it just makes sense now.
So, for my questions:
Has anyone else had/have this problem?
And with a gluten free diet, how long did it take to get your period back?
I never thought I would say this ... but I can't wait to get it. My husband and I are not currently trying to have children, but this will help me feel at ease knowing that I will be able too.
